Question about Samsung Refrigerators
There's a vertical flap or hinge on the left-side door that's supposed to slide into a track inside the fridge. Yesterday I found a small spring inside the fridge and the flap no longer resets itself to fit into the slot, it has to be manually positioned. I can't for the life of me figure out how the spring goes back onto the hinge and I can't find any drawings or videos suggesting how to repair it. Does anyone have ideas for how to get it back in, or a drawing for the proper positioning of the spring? Thanks, Dan

Yes, there is supposed to be a plastic bushing/washer under there. Usually 1/8 inch thick. If a dealer is not handy you may cut some out of plastic to put there. Then undo the top hinge, and carefully lift the door off (you might want to empty the shelfs). Put your spacer on the hinge pin, and replace the door and the top hinge.

The rear panel can be removed,i have done it.I removed the 4 hex head screws from the top & bottom of the panel,and firmly pulled it forward.The reason i say pulled firmly is that when panel came out the back of the freezer was solid with ice.I have defrosted the freezer,dried any water from the unit and replaced the panel.Fingers crossed,so far,so good.In my case this build up of ice was definately the reason the drawers were not sitting in the correct position,as it caused the rear panel to 'bulge' out.Hope this helps.....

SOURCE: I was trying to clean
I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

SOURCE: DCS 30 inch oven door fell off
First thing is be careful them sprins are strong and will hurt your fingers bad if not careful. That said place both hinges in 1/3 open position they should stop there. if not put both all the way open then slide door back on and close. supposed to only lift off in 1/3 open position but whatever works.
