Evaproator cover full of ice. Removed and defrosted only to have it happen again a week later. Compressor cover now cracked from removal but was icing up prior. Seems coils getting hot at bottom of compressor but freezer continues to freeze up every week or two and drops temps on both Freezer and to lesser extent Fridge. Sensors? Thermostat? And obviously need to replace all the compressor covers.
Answer Hello Dustin,
1. Access Forced Operation Mode and turn on the defrost heater. You should hear the relay(s) click when activated. Verify the 12v supply to the relays and the defrost heater(s). 2. Verify the continuity of the bimetal and/or thermal fuse in the defrost circuit. 3. Check the wiring harness for poor connections. 4. Check the operation of the defrost circuit, especially the defrost sensors and bimetal elements. Verify the defrost heater is not turning off to early 5. Check the freezer defrost sensor feedback line by measuring the voltage level at the Main PC
Board and comparing it to the sensor table. Make sure the doors are sealing properly since the moisture from room humidity can contribute substantially to the issue. Parts most likely are the temperature sensor DA32-10109W, the thermal fuse DA47-00301D, and the defrost heater DA47-00311A. Since the evaporator cover DA97-08063B is cracked, if you cannot repair it with silicone it will need to be replaced.
I bought this part because my fresh food evaporator pan is freezing and I was directed to it. I'm having serious problems trying to get information how to install it. I'm not sure what the attached cord plugs into and it doesn't seem to fit behind my evaporator cover.
The heater is mounted underneath the drain trough and would be connected at the side or top of the evaporator assembly. You will remove the rear wall and will have to lift the evaporator being careful not to bend the tubing. Remove the trough and pull off the old heater assembly. Install the new one and reinstall the trough.
After I replace the evaporator assy. What do I do about the freon?
Answer Hello Jeff. You will need an HVAC tech to replace the evaporator assembly and freon for you. This is the law.
How can I check that my current drain heater is actually working or in operating condition, and that there is not another problem occuring? This is in regards to my fridge heat exchanger freezing over with ice periodically.
If the lines coming out of the back wall of the refrigerator and going to the evaporator are icing up and the evaporator icing up then the drain heater would not be the issue. It sounds like an air leak or the thermistor for the defrost that may be at fault.
Freezer side keeps building up with ice and temp light keeps blinking.
Answer Hello Noel. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the the defrost thermostat DA47-10160H. It should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If the thermostat is good, you will need to replace evaporator assembly as the heater is built into it on this model. If the problem still continues, replace the defrost timer (Control Board on this model). Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I wanted to know if this part will work with this model type refrigerator samsung RS267LASH/XAA?
Answer Hello Francisco. Yes, based on the model number you provided, DA47-00090C is the correct drain pan heater. Hope this helps.
