My Samsung fridge went on the fritz the other day and not cooling properly. I called Lowes which is were I bought it and they send a repair guy to diagnosis it and OMG he was here like 5 mins. He pressed the power freese and power cool buttons got a code and said it needs a thermo bimetal. Cost me $55.00 for a five mins diagnosis, so now I'm going to try to replace the part myself. I'm pretty mechanicly Inclined, so I think I'll be fine but I need to known were the bimetal is and how to get to it. Any help sure would be great

Thanks

Brandi

The code was the lower cross bar if the top part of a square 8 the code is displayed as part of a digit if that makes any sense.

= error code 7, refrigerator defrost error - failure of the thermal sensor is plausible - could be the heating element as well. Gonna have to remove the rear wall of the fresh food side to access (see attached blowup) Sensor is key # RI74 in picture

picture link above is for the Defrost Fuse, which could be bad
(no other Bimetal in the Fridge section)

there's is a Bimetal, but it's in the Freezer

Ok now I'n really confused my code = error code 7, refrigerator defrost error wouldn't that mean that the Thermo Bimetal found in the freezer section is more likely to be whats bad and not the thermal fuse ? You said theres no "other " bimetal in the frig section which is true but is the thermal fuse a bimetal if so then why is it called a thermal fuse and not a thermal bimetal ? Also I still can't open the link you send and I'd really like to it may help me understand this a little better can someone fix the permissions so I can see it ? pleaseeeeee

I just got a call from the service company giving me the rest of the quote the service tech is calling for two parts to fix my frig. I guess he's not sure since he was only here five mins. The parts are DA47-00095B $5.97 And DA32-0006B $6.67. The girl said she didn't known what these parts were that he'd only put down part numbers to order by, but I'm assuming one of these is the Thermo Bimetal he said I needed. I known they want another $78.00 to come back and put them in plus the cost of the parts which is $13.00 so I'm looking at $135.00 frig repair unless I can do this myself...I need Instructions on how to take the frig apart and where these parts are located. A service manual will do as it will have all the info in it I need. Thank Master Funk or anyone else who can help.

REFRIGERATOR DEFROST has nothing to do with the FREEZER DEFROST

DA47-00095B is the Refrigerator Defrost Fuse as posted by kdog

I don't know what DA32-0006B is
mabe DA32-00006B
replaced by DA32-00006W
Refrigerator Temperature Sensor

repair guy should have had those parts with him the first time
Electrical tests may need to be done on the Defrost Fuse, Sensor, and the Refrigerator Defrost Heater, etc ...

Thank You Grand Master Funk you are so right I feel he should have had those parts with him as well, especial if they are common faults. You are also correct on DA32-00006B it is a temp senso I looked it up on Samsungparts.com ....Now I only need to known how to get to both of them and I'm in business. Anyone care to tell this girl how to get the inside back wall apart in the frig ? Pleaseeeeeeeee ;~) What Kind of Test do I need do ? Volt ,ohms or resitance ? Oh and could somone tell what correct reading should be and how to test ?

Parts can be ordered by clicking on the pictures, they are links - to remove the rear wall, ya gotta pull the crisper and start disassembling. So much easier if you had a manual to refer to - purchase an apprenticeship here for as little as $10, gets you manual and moral support; or the $135 for buddy to come back and then have no manual for "next time"

Maybe 10-15 yrs. but as you are finding out, they are quite sophisticated electronically and the like - not big things, but $$$$$$$ every time

Can't recall anyone ever saying they regretted purchasing the membership ........

OK so today was the big fix the frig day I started taking it apart and before I knew it there were the sensors right in front of me. It wasn't near as hard to get apart as I thought it would be. I carefully replaced them and put if all back together and waited :wacko: slow ever so slowly the temp came down, but once it reached 45 it stopped and then oh no it started going back up. It never got cold in the frig even when the tem pwas coming down......UGH it's still broken :wallbash: I guess the service guy was wrong with his wam bam thank you mam five mins diagnosis. Now it's back to the drawning board............what do I look at any ideas out there?

did you actually test the parts before you replaced them or did you guess? I cant check your unit at the moment but the last samsung I serviced had the same defrost issue and the fuse was not bad, the heater was. On some Samsung units you cannot buy the heater seperately, it comes with the evaporator coil. However a few Techs have told me that the heater can be removed from the new evaporator and woven into the old one so no sealed system service has to be done.

Reaaaalllllllllyyyyyyy that's me channeling Ace Ventura Humm well thank you for the 411.....I didn't test the parts I removed No becuase the super fly diagnosis tech who raced in charged me 55.00 to push power cool and power freeze told me it needs two sensors.... I even questioned him about his lack of throughness in his diagnosis.and he told me that 99% of the time its the sensors. Ok so how do I tell if I've got one of the kind of Samsungs that I can remove the deforst heater without doing the evap unit ? Also were do I but just the defrost heater ? all the parts places I've looked it comes attached to the evap unit.....and thank you again for all your help :kiss: this things costing me a bunch of money I'm going broke buying ICE for the cooler :wacko: 10 days now without a frig ugh this girl can only take so much :wallbash:
