Question about Samsung RS2530BWP (25 cu ft) Side by Side Refrigerator
My freezer side is not defrosting and trying to narrow down the problem. 2) Opened the panel, removed Defrost Thermostat and placed in ice and checked the for continuity. my Volt meter started to change numbers and stopped at 0.3 and sometime 0.2. Please advise if this means faulty part. 2) I see two parts on this website which i am confused about as to which one samsung RS2530BWP uses and how to test if the one i have is faulty. a) Samsung Refrig Temperature Bar DA32-00029A b) Samsung Refrig Sensor DA32-00006W Thanks in advance.

You have to pull out the sensor from the board and test with tester, both sensor should read the resistance of 10,000 to 20,000 ohms. The reading that you show is very low it means that the thermistor is out of range and need replacement.

It uses a defrost element, built into the evaporator to melt the ice once every 1 - 2 hours. I suspect one of the sensors are failing, or the defrost element is faulty or worse.
You can test the defrost element with a decent multimeter, make sure power is getting to it, in at least 1 to 11/2 hours. If no power ever reaches the element, even when the compressor shuts off, then more likely the problem is the PCB. If power does reach it, but it does not get warm, the defrost emelent needs replacing.
Testing sensors on Samsung models are nearly impossible, so I am not even going to advise it. The resistance readings never make sense.
So in a nutshell: 1) Faulty Defrost Element or 2) Faulty Sensors or 3) Faulty PCB.

most refriderators have an evap tube on the back of the fridge over time this will get all gummed out and will not allow the water to evaporate cause it to freeze try unclogging this tube with a pen or pencil go slow however you dont want to damage internals by jamming the pen in there hope this helps

Self-Diagnostics in the normal operation
2-1) To select this function, press Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons simultaneously for 8 seconds with an audible
2-2) In the self diagnostic mode, only corresponding LED segments will be illuminated (see the check list on the next
2-3) After a 30 second illumination of error signal, the system will return to the normal operation.
Note the position of the LED in the temp windows and the side that it appears on. Then see the Control panel LED legend along with the corresponding position legend listed below listed on page 30 for interpetation. This should tell you what has failed.
Make sure to read the Details of each failure on page 30 also.
This is the legend.
