Question about Samsung CoolTech Plus / Basic Bottom Mount Refrigerator SR-L676EV
The "super" sign & sometimes the "vac" sign comes on for extended periods of times which is frustrating as the buzzer also constantly goes.
If I turn the fridge off for a short period of time, when it's switched back on it's fine until it seems to get back to the set temps & once again the "super" light goes on & off repeatedly.
Q) Do you know how to override the buzzer in the short term?
There is another sensor in the door that senses how far open the door is. look for this and see if its disconnected or broke

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

I had a similar problem where my evaporator coil was freezing into a block of ice, which caused my fridge to warm up due to a lack of air flow. I fixed this by doing a few things. I replaced the circuit board ($100) which was easy to do. Unfortunately, this didn't fix my problem so I took the inner fridge cover off to view the evaporator/heater coil assembly. I checked my thermo fuse and found it to be open (failed). I ordered the thermo fuse and the thermistor and replaced them both. I then plugged the fridge back up and put a regular thermometer inside the fridge to get an accurate reading of inside temp. A few days now and everything looks good. The board, fuse, and thermistor were all pretty easy to replace.
