Samsung Fridge RF267ABPN Defrost Issue

01 May 2013 - 05:19 PM

Hi guys - hoping you can help me out with what appears to be a common problem for the samsung french door fridges.


Water builds up under the cool pantry tray.  This is the third time it has happened.  There is so much water that we noticed it because it drips down to the floor.  Some of it even ices over.


What I have done every time up to this point is take all of the shelves out, remove the inside back panel that covers the evaporator/heater assembly. Then I use a hair dryer and warm water to melt the ice that has clogged the drain at the bottom of the evaporator/heater asembly.  After the drain is clear, I reassemble everything and hope it doesn't happen again but like I said this is the third time so I'm losing hope! It is usually a couple months before it freezes over again.


I've read about this issue all over the internet but I have not found a solution to the problem.  Seems like the heater is good or their would be ice build up on the evaporator and their wouldn't be any water.  Hoping you guys have the answer!


By the way, I ran a self diagnostic and just get a fully lit 88 88.  I assume that is telling me everything is good.


Thanks for any help you can provide.
