Troubleshooting a Whirlpool Refrigerator Motorized Damper Assembly

The complaint on this refrigerator was that it's freezing food in the Fresh Food compartment (aka., Beer Compartment).  On this particular design, the motorized damper has a been a problem point.  One common problem is that the vanes get frozen in place by frost and then break when the damper motor tries to move them.  That wasn't the case here.  This one took sublime troubleshooting skills to identify the source of the freezing problem.  It did involve the damper assembly but only as a secondary effect to the primary failure.  Watch with wonder as The Appliance Guru uses ancient and mystical appliantological troubleshooting techniques to divine the real problem sequence here.
