Question about Samsung 26.0 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator, RS265LABP
I manually go into the refrigerator and blow dry the coils to defrost them. Lasts for about two weeks then starts warming again. This refrigerator has the control panel on the front so I don;t know how to manually start a defrost cycle. This model also has a history of being affected by power surges that zap the computer. Would a surge suppresor help with that?
Surge suppressors assist in not getting the equipment zapped but id check the condition of the defrost heater if your handy with an voltmeter u select the audible tone and check the defrost heater make sure that power's disconnected. if you put one lead of the meter on one side of the heater and you put the other lead of the meter on the other side and there's a tone its good if not bad heater element. if the unit uses an adaptive defrost board suspect the board bad replace that board plus defrost thermostat.
