20 Most Recent Samsung 26.1 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Platinum Questions & Answers


Your model has the twist tray style icemaker. The part number for you front section that contains the motor assembly is DA97-00258E Ice Maker Assembly. You can try by taking it out and seeing if the tray will return to the home position but stopping there make me question if the thermal fuse in wiring harness may have blown. We may need to test that wire also to see if the thermal fuse is still good, I will leave you some of the links and ready to help when you need me, Thanks, Sea Breeze

A lack of refrigerant or a compressor problem might be the cause of freezer low efficiency but that is unlikely to blame for the buildup of ice in the refrigerator.

A certain amount of ice is normal and initially in the evolution of the fridge there was a need for routine deicing, typically just a few times each year. Later a heating element was included to ease the task of defrosting.
These days the heating element is now automatically switched on briefly every time the cooling cycle finishes and the resulting water drained into a cup mounted on the compressor. The heat from the compressor evaporates the water and the fridge remains frost-free.

I expect your fridge should be frost free and clearly the auto defrost is not working. This shouldn't be a great problem and if everything else was good it would just mean routine deicing like the early days. Clearly everything else is not good and the buildup of ice is much more than normal.

Assuming it isn't caused by an elementary mistake like placing hot food in the cabinet there are two main causes of excessive ice buildup - one is a defective door seal and the other is failing cabinet insulation, the latter marked by the compressor needing to run longer to maintain a low temperature and parts of the outside of the cabinet feeling "chilly".

When the refrigerator is powered on, the display goes through a self-test and then all the sensors are checked. In case there is a malfunction, an error code is displayed on the display. If there is no error, the display would stay off until you open the door or trigger the display.

There are two posible causes fot the trip of the RCD. The reason for the RCD to be trips off it means that a power cable is connected with a metalic part or earting of the fridge. So the first is the compressor if it burn out but since in your case it is working for sometime then this less possible. But it have a small chance that the starting kid to be the problem. The second case is when the defrost starts the defrost heating element is conected in series with the defrost thermostat and if the element or thermostat it have been burn out that one reason why the RCD can be trip off.
