Question about Frigidaire FRT18B4A Top Freezer Refrigerator
Hi just wondering if you figured out the problem with your Samsung fridge yet.
It is definately a problem with the defrost part of the fridge. After approximately 4 to 10 hours dependent on many different factors it enters into defrost mode to get rid of any excess ice in both the fridge and the freezer. During the defrost stage the compressor will not run. If any fault occurs during the defrost stage the fridge will not restart unless you turn it off and back on again which restes the pcb and takes it out of defrost mode and the timer starts again.
Please let me know how you went with it.

Common issue with samsung fridges, there is a 10amp/ 77degreese thermal fuse (available at Jaycar for $3.50) for the defrost heaters, in both sides freezer plus fridge. I have usually found the dead fuse in the fridge section but freezer also worth a check.. its connected via a plug on about 10 inches of red and black wire & cable tied to the right hand side of the evaporiser, you should see it wrapped in white foam.. can check this by selecting ohms on your multi meter and put one test lead on each wire, if you get a reading (0-5 ohms) your fuse is ok, if the meter does not react the fuse is dead!!!.. hope this helps guys! took me agoes to fault find the first one I done! ..
