Samsung RB2155SH ice build up temperature drops

Samsung RB2155SH i. I recently had this repaired, and I knew what they did couldn't be right. They replaced the mother board (a $200 repair item). But now, the problem persists- ice buildup and temperature drops. I'm pretty sure it's a defrost problem, but not sure where to tackle it from. I'd like to fix it myself and just need to know which part to replace. Thank you!

    Thank you SeaBreeze. I'm going to read through this to see how to get to the PCB box and test it, and I will let you know what happens.

I would change the sensor assembly it is part #4 in this diagram and only a 10.00 part. Seems like it may be the problem.

    Click here for the service manual=> RB2155SH Go to page 51 and read the procedure for manually forcing the refrigerator into defrost. If to board is good you may be able to do this. I need to know if it is still under warranty. 5 years sealed system? If the defrost heater is bad we have a problem so let me know what you find. Maytag sent out a service bulletin on that model because if the defrost heater goes bad they need to replace the complete evaporator. Click Here=> Defrost heater Repair I hope it's OK but we need the eliminate that first. I can help you the best way I can if you want to try and check some test points. Let me know here or HERE. Thanks, Sea Breeze

If the coil is good, it could be that the defrost timer is not allowing enough of a defrost cycle resulting in ice buildup after various cycles. The ice is never being complete melted and it just keeps building up.

Ice block forms bottom of freezer then leaks on 2 floor


This is usually because the self defrost hose has become clogged. Turn the unit off long enough to defrost the unit and get the ice out of the tube and blow out the tube and turn the fridge or freezer back on.
This should solve it for you.
Cheers
