I have a fast tract on file. I have replaced a IM on this unit several months ago. Freezer & IM function good. A few years back I defrosted the FF evaporator out as the fan was hitting ice. This was my 1st Sam Refer I worked on. Have not had a call to work on it since other than IM was failing to produce ice, which is repaired.
The complaint is now that the FF evap is freezing & not defrosting out. The customer has informed me that for the last month he has been dismantiling the evaporator back wall & defrosting the evaporator with a hair dryer every few days. He wants me to repair it.
He lives on the island & this time of year it is at least an hours (sometimes 2) time to cross over on the ferry & just as long to come back. When I go I want to make it a one stop repair. I am asking what should I order & take with me that could possibly be failing on the unit to cause it to ice over.
Thermal limit fuse is the 1st thing to come to mind. The evap heater is the second (it does not look like a calrod in parts picture) I have read the posts about having to order a replacement evap with heater attached & not being able to order a heater by itself. A thermistor might be in order & possibly a control board.
Trying to have all ducks lined up to complete repair 1st call. I am asking assistance so I don't stumble, don't see many Sam's. Never been lazy at my work, I ask a lot of questions to knock the nervousness off. And as always very thankful for all & any advice/help thrown my way.
One last thing Samsung parts seem difficult to obtain. 1st Servall fails to deliver consistently. APP does a good job for the most part But my last order parts were wrong & have to be returned.
Again tank you.
