Also located in our download section http://appliantology.org/topic/41523-new-appliance-service-manual-added-samsung-refrigerator-fast-track-manuals-bundle-4-of-5/?hl=rfg29%2A

For future reference When searching in the download section, simply search for the first 4 or 5 digits of the model number you are looking for and you can add a "*" at the end as a wildcard... so when you search for "rfg298*" this updated fast tract as well as the original will come right up. Some other files of interest will come up as well.

... add a "*" at the end as a wildcard...

thanks,

I've always been a fan of the * search

hasn't worked on the other search boxes in the past

also, search using the wildcard symbol (*) is no longer supported on eBay  :wacko:

Yeah, it doesn't work with the dedicated google box since google will not recognize a wildcard when the search string is numeric or alpha-numeric. I would imagine it's because it would pull up so many entries it could tax their system if many poeople are doing it at the same time.

This is why i'm so anal about adding good, appropriate tags to each upload.  The advanced search let's you search by tags.  That's a good fall back search... IF the upload info includes tags.  Not all do.  Finding manuals in the Pot Luck Supper is all about search.  Tags help search.  

 

It's easy to add tags to uploads but few people bother adding them.  I don't know why.  Maybe they don't realize the power of using tags.  

 

So I go in behind everyone and add tags.   :tinkerbell: 

BTW, the proper way to spell "Sub-Zero" is Sub-Zero, with the hyphen.  When in doubt about how to spell a brand name, go to their website and see how the manufacturer spells it.  That's the way it should be listed here.  Capitalization doesn't matter for search but it is grammatically correct to do so since it is a proper noun.   :blinky:

This unit needs a new ice room fan and freezer sensor; however, I have not been able to find the part numbers. Can you help me with a parts list?

Thanks for the link. I cannot find either part on their diagram. I do see a part number for the evap cover assy which would take care of the fan, but I don't see anything for the freezer sensor. Do you have any idea how to find the correct part number short of contacting Samsung?
