The door frame heater b/w the freezer and refrigerator section is constantly on and is extremely hot to the touch--would replacing this circuit board be the appropriate action or is this a thermostat issue? The refrigerator, freezer, are both working properly.
ANSWER Hi Nicholas. Samsung uses a "hot pipe" system that takes the condenser freon and runs the sealed system tubing just behind these areas you have mentioned. The reason it is too hot to the touch is because you need to purchase the condenser cleaning brush part # TJ103 and a shop vac. To clean the condenser coils in the back bye the compressor. Make sure the condenser fan is turning up to speed also as this will cause this issue as well. Cond. fan motor part # DA97-01949A.This refrigerator fan motor does not come with the condenser fan blade. For the fan blade order DA31-00010D. Thank You.
