Samsung Refrigerator Error Code 3

I am getting error code 3 "Refrigerator Defrost Sensor" when I plug in my refrigerator. I tried to find the exact part match for "refrigerator defrost sensor", but I am getting more than one part, which is confusing. Which part would this error code be referring to? The part #'s I am finding are: DA32-10109H, DA32-00006W, and DA47-00095E. Can anyone tell me which (if any) of these would be the correct part to replace when getting error code 3? Also, would it be easier to replace the entire evaporator, which is much more expensive, or is the sensor itself pretty easy to replace?

On the refer side we are getting a temp. reading of 67 degrees at the top as you go down it gets cooler to were in the crispers it is 33 degrees, have changed the thermistor and the evap fan motor what...


It could be a problem with the air damper but.... I doubt it.

Down load this manual and go to page 29 of the pdf file,
http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/SAM0074.pdf

You will see this:

Self-Diagnostics in the normal operation

2-1) To select this function, press Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons simultaneously for 8 seconds with an audible

tone.

2-2) In the self diagnostic mode, only corresponding LED segments will be illuminated (see the check list on the next

page)
2-3) After a 30 second illumination of error signal, the system will return to the normal operation.

Note the position of the LED in the temp windows and the side that it appears on. Then see the Control panel LED legend along with the corresponding position legend listed below listed on page 30 for interpetation. This should tell you what has failed.
Make sure to read the Details of each failure on page 30 also.

This is the legend.

NO Error

01 ICE MAKER SENSOR

02 REFRIGERATOR SENSOR

03 REFRIGERATOR DEFROST SENSOR

04 REFRIGERATOR FAN ERROR

05 ICE MAKER function error

06 CoolSelect ZoneTM SENSOR

07 REFRIGERATOR DEFROST ERROR

08 EXIT-SENSOR

09 FREEZER SENSOR

10 FREEZER DEFROST ERROR

11 FREEZER FAN ERROR

12 CONDENSER FAN ERROR
13 FREEZER DEFROST ERROR

Run the test and let me know what the test indicated.

Kenmore Elite Refrigerator error er dh


The Er DH error code indicates the temperature sensor on the evaporator coil did not reach 50 degrees within one hour.
This would indicate the control board did put the refrigerator through a defrost cycle.

This problem could be caused by a defective relay on the control board, a defective defrost heater, a broken wire to the heater, or a stopped up drain on the defrost pan causing ice to form on the evaporator coil.

Before replacing the control board, someone should remove the food from the freezer, remove the freezer drawer, and remove the evaporator cover to expose the evaporator coil, heater, and defrost sensor.
The voltage to the defrost heater should be 120 volts ac.
The defrost heater is part of the evaporator coil and is not replaceable as a separate part.

You can test the operation of the defrost system by pressing "Ultra Ice" and "colder freezer temp" for 3 seconds.
The first time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and open the damper.

All displays should be on.


The second time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and close the damper.

The third time you press and hold the buttons, the board will turn the compressor and fan off and turn the defrost heater on for around 25 minutes. This would let you know if the defrost system is working.

Where is this fuse located on the LG refrigerator is displaying a ER DH code error


Hi. You have an Error Defrost Heater. Its taking too long for the heater sensor to open the circuit during defrost. You normally replace the heater, heater sensor and circuit board(motherboard) located on the back of the refrigerator in this situation. Check your mollex plugs and make sure they are connected tightly at the evaporator coil area. Sometimes they come loose. I reccommend replacing the heater and heater sensor located top right on the evaporator coil. This should take care of the problem. Need parts see me on ebay as user, themackshack. Good luck, Mack
