How to turn my refrigerator off to defrost

Your model has a control Board that most likely automatically controls periodic defrosting. If it's not defrosting, then that Board, the heater, or defrost thermostat is bad.

How do I put Samsung modal rb215 lash refrigerator in defrost manual? Evaporator keeps freezing up!

defrost system MUST function automatically in order fro refrigeration to function. It sounds like you have a malfunction in the defrost system. Find the time and advance into defrost cycle. If defrost cycle begins (The fridge will stop running and water will start trickling after a few minutes), replace the timer. if not, you may have defective heater or defrost thermostat.

My 3 year old bottom frezer samsung fridge stoped defrosting automatically.Ice builds up in vents till stops cooling.After unpluging and defrosting for 24 hrs manually,works good for 2-3mnths.Cant find...

3 things defrost heater, defrost timer or defrost limit thermostat.
You can pull the cover inside the freezer exposing the evaporator coils,
look for the defrost heater at the bottom of the coils. Test for continuity.
Find the defrost limit thermostat, a 2" metal disc attached to the evap coil usually on the side towards the top has two wires going in and will have continuity only when it is cold. If those are good probably the defrost timer.

You have a defrost component failure. Either the defrost thermostat or defrost heater most likely. Bypass the defrost therm and place into defrost by turning defrost timer clockwise until you hear a loud click. if heater comes on then defrost therm is bad .If heater does not come on then it is a bad heater. you can check continuity with a ohm meter Hope this helps

I have a Samsung RS2556BB Refrigerator, purchased in end of year 2004. Looks like the defrost stopped working, cause freezer stop working. A Technicain came as directed by Samsung Customer care, he said it...

Justy a piece of junk. The display has nothing to do with the defrost. Hold your top two buttons for 10 seconds and the displays will reset..good luck.*****
