Question about Samsung Refrigerators
My Samsung Refrigerator, model RH29H9000SR/AA, suddenly quit working. Neither the refrigerator or freezer will cool, the interior lights don't come on when the door is open, and the display board on the front is completely blank and inoperable. There are two small led lights on the outside of the refrigerator that blink about once per second but otherwise it does nothing. I have tried the reset button combinations but as I said, the display panel is blank and inoperable so that does nothing. I have also replaced the front control panel (over the water/ice dispenser on front of fridge), the main control board and the inverter pcb board on the back of the fridge. None of these repairs have done anything. The refrigerator is only 2 1/2 years old and Samsung has been no help at all but that's a different story. Any help in determining what the problem is so I can get this refrigerator working again is greatly appreciated!

the back panel inside the freezer has screws in it. take out the screws to remove that panel. the coils are behind that. melt all the frost. youll see one or 2 heating elements in there also. replace the elements. its a common ge problem. this will fix the problem

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

First off, when the fans are both running, the compressor should also be running. Sometimes, because they run quietly, it is difficult to tell if they are running. Touch the compressor to feel for heat and / or vibration to confirm running. (if the compressor gets too hot, the overload will stop it until the compressor cools down. That could happen with too low or too high voltage, even with the cooling fan running) You did not say how long you let the unit defrost. To properly defrost it, you should empty out the freezer side, remove the shelves, and take the metal cover off the back inside wall of the freezer. Then, use a hair dryer to melt all the frost off. If the coils were blocked with frost, you probably have a burnt out defrost heater (located at the bottom of the cooling coils) when replacing the defrost heater, use part number WR51X10101 and follow directions, as it may have a different configuration than the original heater. A frost blocked evaporator (coils inside the freezer) will stop normal air circulation inside the refrigerator. Cold air will then be able to flow backward, into the bottom of the refrigerator side through the normal return air duct located at the bottom of the refrig / freezer divider. This cold air can freeze the water line or water reservoir located there. There for, solving your defrost issue most likely will also solve your water line freeze issue.
