Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
Three weeks ago the temp control began blinking and food was warming. I swithched off the fridge and opened the panels and found a lot of ice. i left it to defrost overnight. It began to work the next day. Three weeks later, the same problem. Please advise what the problem may be and how to fix it. SM-SAM
It sounds like you have a defrost problem. This will either be the defrost heaters the defrost thermostat or defrost timer. In order to check the heater if you are competent enough you can check that you have resistance across the heater. Alternatively you can rotate the timer (normally in the fridge section abov the thermostat control) around to a defrost cycle (you will normally hear a click) and check to see if the defrost heater kicks in. Please note the cabinet has to be cold in order for the heaters to work. The defrost sensor should also have zero resistance across the terminals when the coil is cold. Please do no attempt the above unless you are practically skilled. A good fridge guy should be able to quickly identify the problem and remedy it. Defrost heaters are generally the first part to fail. Hope this is of some help.
