Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
I know when defrost heater quits, this happens as freezer freezes over. However, this is electronic controlled an readout says fridge is ok. Thermometer says this side is at 50 degrees.
Sounds like a defrost problem. Is there frost build up on inside back wall of freezer? If heater is good, the control or the defrost thermostat may be bad. Is fan in freezer and fan at compressor running?

Because the model FRT21P5A has a manual adjusting vent I believe your problem is either the defrost heater and defrost thermostat and or the cold control (thermostst) is not working correctly. When temperatures rise in the refrigerator side first that is a sign that the air flow from the freezer is restricted. You will need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel in back of freezer to confirm. If Iced over use a hair dryer to defrost and disconnect one wire on the defrost heater. Check the defrost heater with an ohm meter. You should get a reading. If defective and no reading you need to replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze

Your Adaptive defrost control found inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel where the temperature control is located is most likely the reason for the freezing up and lack of defrost. Part number 241508001 Let me know if I can help you more, Sea Breeze

Here is a service manual for the samsung fridge mentioned:
Samsung service manual
Have a look at page 29 to page 34, the section titled self diagnostic's which will explain how to get the system to perform various self checks.
There could also be another section of interest on page 20 and page 31.
I'm not trying to make you **** lemons when you read these sections as they talk about operating controls but I'm just making sure that you havn't accidentally turned something off by accident.
Feel free to have a browse through but there iis a lot of information regarding how to take the fridge apart which i really doubt you need to do or would want to do.
