It sound like your defrost system has a problem and each time you unplug, the frost goes away and thefrig works ok until frost builds up again. Yoou need to see if it is defrost timer, defrost coil, or defrost thermostat. Now you need to be a good tech person to find each item and know how to test each part. I'll tell you the coil and stat are in the back of the freezer compartment, the timer is either under the frig(front) or in the frig compartment near the cold control. goodluck, macgivor

SOURCE: The temperature reading on the outside door panel flucuates

Could be a fan problem, open the door and hold the door switch in, the fan should start and you should be able to feel air coming out the vents (air flow is not very strong as it comes out many vents so you will feel a cold breeze rather than a strong air flow if it is normal. Also check if you can see any ice nuild up in the back of the freezer as it may be a defrost problem and the air can't flow due to the ice build up, if this the case it will need to be looked at.

Sounds like the fan unit is faouling with ice. The solution is to remove the whole of the contents and then the units inside at the rear. Defrost same and re assemble. Its not that hard if you remove the light difuser first and the two screws. Mark the difuser for top. Then ease out the unit and remove after taking out the electrical connections. They fit only one way. The lower unit has four screws. Two under covers. Easy to unclip. The ice seal may mean that it is not that easy to remove. Defrost both the units with a hairdryer or similar and clear insulation from the fan drain. Re assemble when clear and as dry as you can. The problem will come back so be aware that you have to repeat the procedure when the fan gives signs of fouling. Paul.

If the leak is not too big, then water comes from condensation. Water condensing inside the fridge is supposed to be conveyed toward the drain hole inside the fridge. From there the water should normally go to the drain try located in the compressor assembly.

What usually happens is that the drain hole gets clogged with frozen water, and the condensed water ends at the bottom of the fridge. The problem is fixed defrosting the fridge. In some sporadic case it is necessary to remove drain hole blockage using a thin and flexible drain rod.

Do a complete defrost, that should fix the problem.

Here all parts and diagrams for this fridge.

Samsung refrigerator rfg297aarf cannot put cool select pantry drawer back?

I don't remember exactly how that one works but try these two options...

1) tip the front of the drawer up more than 45 degrees and connect the rear to the tracks, then lower the front until the drawer catches on the rails - it will push in and slide out correctly.

2) look under the shelf where the drawer attaches, you may have to get down on your knees and really look in. Pull all moving clips that are in the drawer tracks forward (they may have been moved back while cleaning). Then connect the drawer to the slider clips (it should be obvious how they clip in if you have the slider clips).

Hope one of those was right for your unit.

Cool Select Pantry, to relocate per manual instructions, doesn't slide all the way in.

Cool select Pantry
To remove the pantry - Pull the pantry out to full extension. Tilt up the front side of pantry and pull straight out.
To relocate the pantry - Push the rails to the back of the Refrigerator. Place the drawer onto the rails and slide the pantry back until it is in place.

before install they ask to push the rails to the back of the refrigerator
should be no problem

My RF263AEWP Samsung is 3 weeks old. The pantry cool drawer sticks as I pull it out and sticks as I push it in. The lid does not close completely on one side.

Mine does the same thing. The repair man brought a new drawer and it does the same thing. Look underneath and you will probably see that the wheels don't fit correctly on the tracks. Samsung is saying this is how it's designed. :(

Amana bottom freezer model #BX21TW purchased in 1996

this particualr refrig is notorious for this. check your controls ( your freezer control as well set to 4 max) any higher and the refrig is running longer, generating more cold then needed, behind the left hand crisper is a few slots( the fresh air return) by default the coldest spot in refrig, i usuallly would reccomend to my cust not to keep high water or thin walled vegies in there such as carrots cukes tom and lettuce, perfect beer and fresh /frozen defrosting meat to be though, if you ever looked at the newest bottom freezers they've pushed up the drawers and added a deli pantry, running the width of frig
