Default Defrost Problem
Model Number: RF267ABWP   Brand: Samsung   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Samsung French door fridge regularly freezes up. The evaporator coil and compartment fan become encased in ice. I believe that the automatic defrost function is not working.

I have run a diagnostic on the appliance via the device front panel and it indicates a problem in the defrost function. The appliance will not let me carry out a manual defrost. It just gives out a continual series of audio beeps when I try to program a manual defrost.

I have checked the heater resistance and that looks to be sound. I have also checked the R-DEF temperature sensor at several points along its (negative temperature) resistance curve and it also looks to be sound.

I have been using a service manual for the RF267AE range, which is quite similar to my model, but not exactly the same. I am now at the point where I need to start tracing through circuits and carrying out checks on the appliance motherboard. The PCBs in my appliance do not quite match those in the manual that I have.

Can anyone help me determine where to buy the right service manual for my model? I would also be very grateful for any guidance on exactly what might be wrong with the appliance.

Thank you in advance.
