Insufficient cooling in Samsung RS2578BB refrigerator section
Posted 08 January 2012 - 11:59 AM
We have this Samsung side by side referigerator RS2578BB. About 12 days ago, we returned from a vacation to find a puddle of water under our fridge and that it was off as the breaker switch for the fridge in the electrical panel had tripped. I reset the breaker switch in the electrical panel and it seemed fine since.
2 days ago , we noticed that the fridge side temperature LED was blinking and that the cooling inside the fridge side was insufficient. The freezer is still operating fine.
On forum postings for other Samsung refrigerator, we found a section on doing a "self diagnostics in the normal operation" by pressing Power Freeze and Power Cool together for 8 seconds till we heard a beep. At that point we saw that
Fridge temp 2nd digit's middle horizontal LED was lit.
We would appreciate any help in determining what the problem is.

2) REFRIGERATOR DEFROST ERROR
check the Defrost Heaster with an OHM meter

2. How would I access the Defrost Heater? To check with ohm meter - what would be the working range for ohms reading for a good defrost heater?

This drawer has electrical connections (I peaked from above at the back right corner and see wires going into the drawer), as well as additional small vents coming into the top of the drawer.
Would you be able to advise on how to remove this drawer?

1. Pull out the screw cap and remove the screw.
2. Remove the lamp cover by unlocking the tabs
and pulling the cover down.
3. Remove the water tank from the evaporator cover
by unscrewing the screws (2).
4. Remove the screws (6) at the evaporator cover
and the two fixed screws of the wire connector
5. Take off motor and lamp wire connector located
on the upper liner.
6. Remove the duckwork of the evaporator fan.
