Question about Samsung RS265LBBP Side by Side Refrigerator
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?
Run this by an appliance parts supplier to get an idea of what needs to be done and to answer the question about parts interchangeability.

The heater needed for this repair comes with an evaporator making this a major repair. What city are you in? I will try and locate someone for you.
If not I can help walk through the repair if you are really handy.
