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
