Question about Samsung Refrigerators
The fridge side usually freezes up first. I replaced the temp and defrost sensors on the refrigerator side, still no luck. There doesn't seem to be a drain heater problem. I took both covers off and put it into forced defrost mode and neither heater (both sides) felt warm at all. There is a small crack in the evaporator cover on the fridge side, would that make it frost up on both sides or is it more likely the main pcb?
Your defrost heaters are not working. The unit takes a week to freeze up and presto - poor cooling. Melt the ice and it works fine again till it freezes up again. Did you check out the defrost timer? Make sure that the defrost elements are not open.

Frost is a natural occurrence on the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. To prevent frost buildup, a self-defrosting refrigerator warms the coils using a defrost heater several times each day to melt away the frost. This frost melts into water and flows out of the compartment through the drain. If any part of the defrost system is not working properly, the result can be heavy frost buildup that may affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator.
The defrost timer is a mechanism that tells the defroster how long to run to melt the frost. The limit switch measures the temperature in the freezer and helps to maintain it, while the heater is the key element that melts the frost. Any one of these components could need replacement at a given time, which will result in this over-frosting.
