SOURCE: Defrost Heater or Main Control Board, Which one is at fault?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To answer your question I know of no reason the electronic type of board would cause the heater to go out unless the defrost thermostat (or sensor) and board stuck in the defrost possession and did not stop the heater. Any time you replace the board and have had a defrost problem a check of the heater will either confirm or eliminate it but the defrost sensor should be replaced if the board is being blamed for non defrost. I cant rule out 100% that a bad board will not cause a heater problem but the high 99% range is most likely. If you have a volt ohm meter and can find the heater circuit on your board and the freezer has been running down to correct temp you can check the defrost circuit by ohming it out. Lower resistance of 10 to 60 ohms is common. Anything higher will require ohming the heater out directly and the defrost thermostat will be open if the temperature is above the stats range.

Common to all self defrosting refrigerators / freezers is the need to move air around to pickup heat inside the compartment. Common to all frost free refrigeration to maintain this feature are 3 items:
1 and initiator (defrost timer or circuit board),
2 A heat source for defrost (Usually an electric heat element but can be other types of heat sources)
3 A safety limit to stop the heat source, leaving it warm enough to defrost and keep the heat contained where it will not affect the compartment advisedly. In a standard type defrost (non - electronic) it is called a thermostat. In an electronic board defrost it is called a sensor.

The defrost timer / or board will never be in the Freezer. Other than that it could be in the refrigerator section behind a plastic cover or metal cover on the back outside. It could also be under Neath the front corners or center of the front kick plate.

A timer you can turn the cam clock wise till it clicks. A board will depend on the manufacturer as to how to send into defrost for a test. A sensor on the defrost type board may be required to by-pass into defrost or test mode.

The freezer section has the only cooling coil. It sounds like it is blocked with frost and thus won’t let the air circulate from freezer to refrigerator.

There is a defrost timer, (or board), a defrost heater, and a defrost safety thermostat. Any One of these or a combination of 2 can be your problem. If you have a energy efficient model that has electronic controls then you will have a board. The procedures for checking the circuit on a board vary by manufacturer of the board used and manufacturer of the appliance.

The defrost heater always has resistance and is attached to the freezer coil.
The defrost thermostat is also attached to the heater electrically, unless it is an electronic sensor type. Sensor types have a range of resistance that needs to be known to check and varies slightly with the temperature of the sensor.

If I haven't lost you here you maybe equipped with the life experiences that will allow you to do most of these checks. If its over your understanding I recommend you contact a reliable technician..

SOURCE: control panel not working Samsung refrigerator

I have a samsung refrigertor rs2555sl and my control panel stopped working after I turned the power off to the house (to install a light fixture elsewhere). There was one green light blinking on the refrigerator temp display.

Hold down the "power freeze" and "power cool" buttons at the same time for at least 8 seconds. This is a self diagnostic program. A number should appear on the refrigerator temp display (1-9)...it will hold for 30 seconds and then the panel should function again.

In my case the number that appeared was "3" which can indicate a multitude of things including a short circuit or power outage (which was it was for me).

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control

It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Samsung rs265tdbp refrigerator is iced up and freezer works fine. is it the defrost heater or defrost control?


Hello Marc-Ryan Digesu,

You have given this some thought... Very impressive!!

It can be only three things (barring physical wiring damage):

YES... Highly likely it is the CONTROL BOARD

Looking into your model (but you MUST verify the DA41 00670 NUMBER yourself)...

(3 basic parts of your DEFROST CIRCUIT)
- heater(s)... very unlikely
- defrost thermostat... unlikely
- clock/timer or control board... most likely (easiest)

The first thing you want to do (after removing power)
BUT before REMOVING ANYTHING...
take LOTS of USEABLE pictures. You will need to put every wire & screw exactly back EXACTLY from where it came!!

Always ground your hands before touching any circuit board you VALUE (BETTER purchase an anti-static wrist band... below).

Look at the bottom of the board for any obvious solder issues...
Else.. order that spare board you always wanted (anyway).

Always get three estimates... (about $115)

Prices may vary but the parts are ALL THE SAME.

Hope this helps... I like refrigerators... feel free to comment me back if want to discuss...

(I have a spare board & door gaskets... because I plan on KEEPING my refrigerator (until that HOT PLACE freezes)).

How do I open the front control panel of my Samsung side by side refrigerator?


I tried to reply on my question, when you asked, I don't think it worked. First of all it sounds like you have a bad control board, or you may have a loose connection. On back of the fridge is your main control board, I think its the first wire at the top to the right, if that wire is disconnected the door will open and close. When I was running some test, I took this wire off and it began to do this. As for taking the display off, simple, took a while to find this out but all you do is take the one screw out, grab the ice shoot and just give it a firm tug, it should pop right out. you have the hose attached and theirs a wire connected so be careful, but that all it takes.

Replacing the main control doesn't fix anything on the display they have separate functions. You need the bom number to find the display board it should end in /xaa or something like that

Samsung Dryer Model DV419AEW /XAA Dryer will not


I doubt its the main board. Try seeing if the drum is tight and seeing if the belt broke by spinning it by hand. If the drum is real sloppy and you can't feel motor tension, you need a belt. I would rule out the mainboard until last because the belt is like 89 cents.
