How to replace the defrost heater in a Samsung refrigerator

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 23 June 2011 · 7,667 views

This is the kind where the engineers were smokin' some goot sheet and decided to make the defrost heater and integral part of the evaporator coil, I guess under the delusion that the heater would never burn out. I gotta git me some o' dat! Anyway, the replacement procedure is a bit more involved that in most other refrigerators. Now, for the first time ever in the Universe, Sublime Master of Appliantology Certified Tech Group 51 reveals his patented technique.

A few extra tips........

interesting, I do it completely different....

I leave the pan attached just removing the 1 rivet on the side.

the pan stays on the heater....no wire modifications at all....
