That means quick n’ dirty techniques for diagnosing sealed system problem using strategically chosen and skillfully interpreted temperature measurements.  Review homework from the first session on 10-2-2017. Home refrigerator practical design and operating rules-of-thumb useful for troubleshooting Practical application exercises Troubleshooting scenario exercise Techniques for making system temperature measurements for determining superheat and subcooling Sealed system diagnosis homework assignment (to be reviewed in the next webinar in this series) If you attended the first webinar in this series, this is your payday! We’re going to apply that keen, penetrating insight you now possess into money- and time-saving shortcuts you can use to diagnose real-world refrigeration systems on service calls.

Yeah, this is a bastard child from an unholy coitus between GE and Samsung.  Closest thing I can find for it is the mini-manual: http://appliantology.org/files/file/781-ge-samsung-built-french-door-refrigerator-gfsf6-gfsl6-gfss6-pfsf6-pfss6-mini-manual/

Thanks for the help. It turned out that the unit was cooling fine, but the evaporator drain in the fresh food compartment was frozen and dumping water in the bottom. I cleared the drain and re-leveled the unit (it was leaning forward} and we will see if it happens again.

Leaning forward? wow...Seen them leaned back but never forward...I guess they must have scrambled a lot of eggs in the past.

With regards to proper leveling, I understand older fridges benefit from a slight backwards lean so that the doors will close when opened half way but newer fridges such as LG's and your Samsung require level. Not sure if this is accurate but this is the approach I've used.

 

btw this would be one of the few times I wouldn't hate on  you if you just so happened to not put back the tech sheet! (then posted it here and mailed it back to the customer lol)
