Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
When I disassemble the fresh food side - the evaporator is frozen solid with ice. After manually defrosting it - it will work for a while (a week to a month or so) until it freezes up again. I looked for a defrost motor/timer but I couldn't find one - got the shop manual and it looks as if the defrost timer (circuit) is on a motherboard. Now my freezer has started to do the same thing - up and down temps (according to the readout on the door) When the fresh food side went out (dual cooling units) the temp read what it was set at (but the inside was much warmer) and when I unplugged the unit for a half hour and then plugged it back in, the readout changed to the actual temp, not the incorrect readout. Any ideas?? I'm tired of losing food and doing a manual defrost each time. This Samsung is hard to find parts and service for - Samsung was no help when I call - they told me to look in the phonebook when I asked them for local factory authorized service" - but no one in the Cleveland, Ohio area works on these (except, maybe BestBuy where I bought it)
What does it cost to do this? I have had the problems on this post and others and am so tired of dealing with Best Buy/samsung and the most ignorant/non-troubleshooting repair guys that I'm thinking about giving the thing away and buying a new one as another person above mentioned.

Hi there this is a common fault you need to replace the evaporator cover with the new modified one which has a large heat sink around the fan to stop iceing up also you will need to replace the thermal fuse and the defrost sensor.
hope this is of some help
