In Topic: Samsung RF263AEBP/XAA FDBM Refrigerator: Cold freezer but warm beer compartment

Went back out and did the repair on this one today.  The hardest part was getting that evaporator fan plate off because it was stuck in place from all the frost.  But steamer and patience prevailed.  Good to replace the evaporator fan plate as an assembly because the old is very prone to cracking because of all the frost.  


Turns out the only problem was the open defrost limiter.  The calrod heating element was fine.  I repositioned the sensor from the vertical liquid line to the last run on the suction side of the evaporator.  Not sure if this was the right location but there was no room to put it anywhere else.  Added the drain clip and buttoned it back up.  Pretty much of a plug n chug job, inexpensive replacement parts and nice equipment to work on.  Samsung has some good things going for them from a repair standpoint.  


Mega Domos to Brothers Ohm, PDuff, and Micabay for the assist!  


That is the proper relocation for the defrost sensor. Great Job ;)

Yeah, I was wondering if one of those Samsung beasties took him out..... (snip)


Lol! Samsung is the easy part of my day ;). I have 4 kids and the weather is getting nicer here in New York. I also own rental property and have this bad habit of not hiring any needed projects. SO, if I seem to be hit and miss, y'all know why ;) Glad to see people getting such friendly help at the coolest Appliance site online in the last 50 years ;)

I would also suspect possible freezing. These will work with the filter removed, but they are designed to be used with the filter in place. See if the valve is being activated, but likely there is a restriction or water supply issue.
