Question about Samsung Refrigerators
My Samsung Cooltech Plus Refrigerator serial number SR-L709EVSS is Building Ice in both the fridge panel section and the freezer. I tried to reset by pressing at the same time the Quick Cool and Quick Freeze buttons but no joy. How can i get this freezer to defrost and fix this problem.

Im no expert, but you can try this, take the back bottom cover off and you will see two drairn pipes going into a drip tray. remove those pipes ( just pull them down ) make SURE they are not blocked ( there is a rubber thing at the top that can close up--- just cut it open ) place a bucket under those pipes and leave your fridge off and the doors OPEN........ it may take a couple of days for ALL the ice to defrost. when you think its done--- leave it a few hours and if there is any water being collected --- you still have ice in there. i was amazed at how much and for how long water kept dripping out of the fridge drain pipe.... the pipe nearest to the compresser is for the frezzer, If the sensor that tells the fridge to get cold is all iced up it wont even try to get cold--- it thinks it is already.

Your defrost system must be on the blink. The defrost system is used to keep slabs of ice from forming and disrupting flow of air to that fresh food compartment. In the old days grandma would just unplug the unit every 2 weeks and place a chair in front of the the ice box, holding the door open for an afternoon to kill the frost buildup. Then came the modern frost free icebox. Every 8 hours the timer would kill the compressor and kick in a heater to melt that old frost. A bi-metal thermostat was installed in line with the heater to shut it down at 50 degreesF, then the ice box would just keep quite and set a spell (21 mins) then like magic the ice box would roar back to life, get cold, and chill out. That is until you opened the ice box door and violated grannys 3 second rule and caused the compressor to come roaring on and scare the cat half to death. Nowadays instead of timers(we don't need no stinking $2 timers) we built in computer boards with fancy sensors to monitor capacitance changes in the evaporator coils and issue orders from main computer board to defrost board to commence defrost cycle all the time monitoring for any changes in our daily habits, taking in consideration of how many times we peek into the ice box and look at grandmas strawberry shortcake. Keeping up with each and every ice cube we consume and checking the temperature and quality of our water and ice in the door. OH my! So what could go wrong? Well barring hurricanes, tornatoes, thunderstorms, earthquakes, and other natural disasters, all ice boxs still need a heater and a thermostat. I would start there. Of course if you had have specified a particular model number and brand so that a date age and a few components could have been looked at then I could have posibly given a more specific answer.

Yes, I had this problem. $85 visit from a very condescending repair man located a piece of old hard cheese that had become wedged in and stopped the thing from turning - the noise had been terrible. Fixed in 2 minutes - embarrassment lasted much longer.
