Hello zellerdude,

It most likely that the contacts in the cold control (thermostat) have fused together keeping the compressor running all the time and freezing everything. You need to replace the cold control.
It could also be that the condensate drain is plugging up causing the condensate to backup and freeze on the coils, or you have a defective evaporator.
In any case, if your fridge under warranty, I would recommend getting it replaced or serviced by a qualified technician, preferably someone from Hopoint itself..

Perhaps the drain is plugged in the freezer.

Have you checked this, please let me know what you find and we can go from there to figure this out.

    Other items to check that I figure the repairman would have already checked are the defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost thermostat.

Fridge is not cooling or freezing,a new timer was put in but stil


Try cleaning the coils under the unit, if you have pets, fur and dust builds up on the coils and the unit will appear to run all the time but will not cool.
Cleaning of the coils should happen at least twice a year, its a common thing to over look by everyone.
Hope this is all it is.

SAMSUNG RB215LASH fridge coil iceing up


Don't think its a control board. I think you need to see if Samsung has a longer sealed system warranty. I think at this time the repair should fall back on Samsung 5 year sealed system. I can send you the service manual and the evaporator information if you like. The problem is most likely a defrost heater in the fresh food evaporator has become defective. And it cannot be replaced without removal of evaporator and heater together. Some idiot had the idea of weaving the defrost heater into the evaporator coils on your model. The heater is part of the evaporator. Which I would say now is part of the sealed system. I think you need to have a talk with your nearest Maytag service team. Samsung is a division of Maytag and because of the issue of the defrost heater being not replaceable without breaking into the sealed system Maytag may honor your concerns. Sorry I could not bring better news. But feel it's better to let you know. If you need me let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer will not keep foods frozen fridge will not keeep temp.


Sounds like a main control board problem keeping the freezer fan from working . If no air flow to the top of the freezer , the icemaker will stop working and the ice will begin to melt ( leaking from freezer ) . The coils will start to freeze up due to no air flow across them . If continued for a period of time , the cold air could return thru the return vent located in the bottom of the ref/freezer section and freeze the water tank in the refrig section , causing the no water thru dispensor .

Samsung fridge RS2545SH every 7 days freezes fridge coil.


Hey how yo doing? on most refriderator there are two important parts to keeping freezer from freezing over, they are the bimetal thermostat and ice pipe heater. The bimetal therostat is a preset thermostat that ranges from 54degrees farenheit to about 60, when the coils (inside the freezer compartment behind the back panel) reach the preset temp. it closes a circuit and send electricity to the ice pipe heater, to warm the freezer coils preventing from freezing over. if any one of those components fail, your freezer will continue to freeze solid until there is no more space for ice to build on coils decreasing air flow from the evaporator fan blowing air into your fridge.To test you will minor knowledge on using a multimeter.(REMEBER TO UNPLUG REFRIDGERATOR BEFORE SERVICING, IF YOU UNCOMFORTABLE WORKING ON APPLIANCE PLEASE CONTACT A PROFFESIONAL REPAIR SERVICE..) If you'd like to continue please respond.
GOOD LUCK, WORK SAFELY..

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

Coil is Freezing Up


MWKT, did the service tech replace the adaptive defrost board? By your post it sounds like a defrost problem. Check out the pic, this is the adaptive defrost board. I find that the heater and bi-metal usually don't fail on these models and the board is the culprit. Catriver..post back
