    I have a smell problem but on the outside. When I walk in the kitchen it is very strong (Yes, like old gym socks). Inside smells good. I sprayed the coils under with Lysol and it seems to help - some. Where does the defrost liquid evaporate? There is no pan like most refrigerators and I think it might be mold in there. I have seen slime in other refrigerator pans and think this smell could be coming from there.

2 places filter can be top left upper corner of fridge or behind the fridge with a little longer filter type

the smell could be the filter but i would pull all drawers and shelves and i would check for mold also the possibility of water leak behind panel of water spout that has molded over this smell you could never forget cause smells like old gym socks

Firdge not working


Is it just a fridge or fridge/freezer? If just a fridge it may be the thermostat, if it's a fridge/freezer it depends if you have 2 compressors or 1. Check & come back.

I have a Samsung French door fridge that has a problem with ice building up inside the back wall of the firdge and water accumulating under the crisper drawers. We have been unpluggint he fridge...


Access is from the rear, but make sure the vents on the front grill are not clogged also because it does need front to rear air flow.

Your unit has two evaporator coils and two defrost heaters and two defrost thermostats, but uses one defrost timer circuit. So if you don't have trouble with the freezer side, then it should be the defrost heater or defrost thermostat for the refrigerator side of your unit. Which are items 1-2 and 1-4 on the following diagram.

My freezer degree keeps flashing and a beeping noise comes on about every minute and lasts for roughly 6 beeps. What is it?


Your icemaker sensor is out of its place. unplug the unit . check bottom of your icemake, the sensor looks like a little ***** , insert it back. turn unit on, and reset the board, Hold power freez, Power Cool for about 10 seconds.

Samsung fridge filter leaking


HI,

your drain is clogged.you may have a catch for your drain where you see leak coming from.that may pull off and you can see if their is trash build up in it.you are going to need to take the panel off the back of freezer.inside back of freezer you will see screws.they will need to come out,if you have ice maker that will need to be removed also.once back panel is off you will see your coils,beneath the coils it will most likely have a sheet of ice.tturn machine off and take a hair dryer and defrost the ice.once ice is gone take a cup of hot water and run thru drain to see if unclogged.repeat if drain is not clear.the ice in drain tube will eventually unclog.I use a steamer.much quicker.

thanks,
