Everything works fine except inside my refrigerator side where the cold air comes from the freezer side - it ices up around the hole and if I don't melt it - it will stop the flow of cool air. Here are 3 pics of it.

After you thaw it all out do you adjust that damper?
Looks to me like you got it closed too much so the cold control don't get enough air.

Refrigerator fresh food door gasket not sealing is the most common reason for that. Make sure the door gasket is making contact all around the door. Usually it is at the lower section opposite the hinge side.

Hair dryer to soften and shape,should do the trick.

Those are not fully foamed doors.  They can pop out and warp.  I usually fix more with opening it, putting my knee at the spot I need to get the door in more and tweak it.  I've seen people walk into them when they are open and bow them out the last 1/3 of a way down.  Place the knee and hold the door, then flex the to of it.
