I have a Samsung refer masquerading as a G.E. unit.........The evaporator  panel's foam insulation is water logged and disintegrating....Bits of the foam is getting down into the drain tube and that 'Duck bill' fitting, near the defrost drain pan.........The evaporator panel G.E part number is WR60x10272....190 Clam$.....Any one gots the Samsung part number for a possible cheaper price?????...........I had visited this unit back in 11/2012 for a iced over defrost drain trough..........I put a longer heater next to the  manufactures  drain heater ( if you could call it a drain heater ).....Is there a kit to stop the water from backing up in the drain tube or just cut a 'V' in the 'duck bill' ???...............Do not see to many Samsung's or L.G.'s  in my neck of the woods................

They have a defrost drain heater kit. I will find you the part number. It's just a metal probe that sits in the drain. While your in there I would replace the defrost thermistor just because they do fail and they are pretty cheap.
I will see if I can find you an evap cover that will work.

if the insulation is disintegrating, you may have to replace tbe cover. I believe The new cover comes with the defrost kit. As to cross referencing... try this http://appliantology...-ff-evap-cover/

Applianceman97, did you find the part number for the defrost drain???          I got the G.E. evap. panel assy.  and gonna wait till I find out if there is a new drain.........On the new panel cover, there is a new thermistor..............Lucky me , cuz if you had to replace a new one into the old location, all the soft foam would get torn up cuz of the glue holding the foam on.................The original factory drain heater is a metal strap that stops about 1/2" short of entering the drain hole in the drain trough....I had  ( back in 4/2012 ) added a copper wire wrapped around the Cal-Rod heater a few times and then pushed about an inch into the drain hole.... Possibly, bits of the Styrofoam backed up the water in the hole........... I had cleared the drain hole first with out removing the panel....There was ice across the bottom of the panel and I thought with the steamer going, the ice at the bottom would melt...Nope had to de-ice there also..........With the Styrofoam disintegrating, it appears that replacement is the way to go........So maybe, I do not  need a newer drain replacement..........Durham, no defrost kit with the new evap. panel, just a different color motor and a new thermister......   .

Thanks Samurai! I was snoozing on that one. Sorry ctg51. Make sure to move the evap thermistor to the center of the evaporator. Clip it right on the top row.

Thanks guys......The part number DA97-07190G (AP5326112) is  ( if the grid is correct )  18" W. X 26" H.......Wr60X10272 is ( actual measurement ) is  16 1/4" W. X 29 " H....The bottom mounting hole would be a bit off, about 2 1/2 "...................I had read thru some of the Samurai's reports, but not all............Fancy defrost drain heater.......................With these Samsung and L.G refers, hozit the techs job to clean up the mess????.............The customer is looking at me , as I scratch my head wondering " How many repair kits is it going to take to fixit ????"....

Pretty common issue with the Samsung.  Along with replacing or repositioning the defrost sensor I'll price out a replacement evap cover is the icing is severe enough around the fan motor, just knowing I'll most likely damage the old one during removal.  The price difference between the motor and cover assy is minimal, especially since the cover comes with a new motor.  Unless of course the customer is willing to shut down the unit to allow it to deice on it's own.

 

Thanks for the P/N for the drain heater, Samurai.  I'll add it to the arsenal.

Works with all the FDBM FF evaps.  May work in other models or in the FZ cmpt but the FF evap is the only place I've ever used it.
