A few days ago our refrigerator started making a humming noise.. And noticed some ice build up.. Would like to know the cause... Thank you
It sounds like you may have some type of defrost failure. You will want to pull the rear cover of the section where you are seeing ice build up and check to make sure that the evaporator is not impacted with ice. If it is then you will need to check the defrost sensors and heater to ensure them being good. If they are bad then replace them. If they are good then you w ill need to replace the control board.
The freezer is working and the fridge is not. The coils are frozen in the fridge. Please help.
Answer Hello Sayed. Based on the information you provided, you will need to order and replace the evaporator DA96-00020Q on the unit.
Hello, I have replaced the main control board, both temperature sensors in the freezer and I'm having the same issue. The unit will get to the proper temp an will not start back up without being unplugged and plugged back in. We notice that there was ice on the coils in he freezer ad had to use a hair dryer to thaw the ice. It will run fine until the ice forms again! What could this be?
Thank You in advance for your help.
Answer Hello Quincy. 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 defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They 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 both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. 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
How come the evaporator fan motor is encapsulated with some RTV material inside the motor case and what is that RV material?
Answer Home Repairman,
The evaporator fan motor has bushings to keep it from vibrating and is not encapsulated in RTV. This are silicone or rubber bushings.
What is the ohms reading on the two sensors on a samsung frig?
Answer Hello Virgil. Freezer-Sensor

I was told that I needed to replace the temp sensor in my fridge. Samsung model # rs2530bbp, part # da32-00006w. I'd like either a detailed instruction or better an illustration
Answer Hi. You will need to remove the shelves and the back wall screws to access the sensor part # DA32-00006W. Make sure the back wall does not have frost on it. If so then you will need to defrost it with a hair dryer carefully not to melt the cabinet, but to get the wall off. Use towels to catch the water. It is located beside the lower evaporator coils on the rt. There is another sensor there as well you need to change. It is a defrost sensor part # DA47-00095E that controls the defrost heater temperatures in the defrost cycle. Thank You.
