My refrigerator compartment was not getting cold, however the compressor is running and the freezer is fine (if not too cold). I took the housing at the top underside of the refrigerator compartment off and it appears the little door that opens the airway for the cold air from the freezer is not opening.

Any idea what could cause it to not open? Could it be the thermostat or does that just operate the compressor?

I have manually opened the door and the refrigerator compartment is now cold.

Not getting anything with that model number but I'll guess it's a 10672992201. Am I right or am I right? Is it a top and bottom fridge? If so, then that's close enough.

Have you gotten some eyeballs on that evaporator? If not, that's your homework assignment. Here's a diagram that'll help you.

Post pictures of the evaporator coil to an online free image hosting service and then post the links here so we can see 'em.

You have the right one, but I gave you the model number on the unit. Part number 9 in your diagram is not opening up. Is part 46 a mechanical part? That looks like the pivot that moves the arm.

All those air controls are knee bone connected to the thigh bone kinda deals-- all mechanical, just the way they look. May have some broken linkage. Turn the "Freezer Colder" control and see if item 9 moves at all.

Then the linkage done broke. Move the control and follow the mechanical movement with your eyeballs till you see where the movement isn't getting transmitted any more. Could be a stripped gear, broken rod, broken knob... no tellin'. This is where the fun begins!

It doesn't look like anything is stripped or missing.  It just looks like the thermostat is not turning that pivot which pulls the arm.  I'm going to give that part a shot.  Thanks
