   The Force has sent me a vision of the GE part number you seek  WR49X10091.  Repair clinic calls it a 1055112.

    Pull the light shield on the top of the fresh food side.  Loosen the front bulb to tun it off.  Remove the rear bulb.  Line your eye up with the  rear bulb and look down the square hole in the Styrofoam in the back.  If you know what your looking for you'll spot the broken damper door right away.   If you leave the fridge  door open long enough you may hear the damper motor (while seeing no damper motion).
    This information has come to you a heck of a lot easier than it came to me.  May the Force be with you grasshopper.

I too seem to be having the same problem with my PS323NHMC side-by-side GE refrigerator.

I have looked at the FAQs (http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/04/14/ge-arctica-refrigerator-broken-air-damper-and-everythings-freezing-in-the-beer-compartment/), and it seems the malfunctioning damper door is causing the problem and what is also causing the frequent "the vegatables are frozen again in the vegetable bin" comments from my wife.

Could this same problem have caused the water dispenser to stop working?  The ice dispenser works fine, and the water filter is not frozen, but not a drop will trickle from the water dispenser.

Many thanks in advance.

It's possible the water line for the dispenser is frozen. Common problem with this fridge. You can determine if this is case by verifying the operation of the water inlet solenoid-- check continuity of the coil and verify that's getting voltage when you actuate the dispenser. If the valve is good and it's getting voltage, then the line is probably frozen.

Could be a separate issue, could be related.  It might be frozen inside the freezer door.  To confirm this uncouple the coupling in the water line at the base of the freezer door and try the water dispenser.  If it squirts on the floor, it's frozen inside the door.  If not the water tank behind the veggie bins could be frozen.  Make sure both doors are closing properly.  Open each door about 6 inches and let go.  Do it a bunch of times.  If the doors don't always close, raise the front of the fridge a few turns and lubricate the door gasket's hinge side with armor all.

I ordered and installed the part mentioned in this FAQ: http://fixitnow.com/wp/2007/12/06/ge-side-by-side-refrigerator-freezing-the-beer/

the hole (that you mention in your post where you can view the broken damper door) in the new unit is now blocked with styrofoam.

I was tempted to remove the styrofoam, but it looked as if the GE people went to the trouble of glueing the styrofoam pieces in place.  Looks like they could not figure out how to get that darn damper door to work, so they just blocked it with styrofoam.

Just wanted to confirm that the new unit should be installed with the styrofoam pieces.

Thank you.

The new part has been redesigned.  Do not modify the Styrofoam.  May the Force be with you.

Thankful I found that last bit of advice - I'm sitting here looking at the part and wondering if I ordered the wrong unit.  Also, I'm just dumb enough to start considering modfiying the styrofoam!!!
