All of a sudden within the past 2 weeks my 3 year old Samsung RF4278HABP/XAA refrigerator has started falling apart. Last week the Ice Dispenser paddle broke which I posted about HERE
. Before that I opened the freezer door and saw a sensor laying in the freezer compartment. (See attached picture). You will notice the sensor attaches via a plug but the sensor, plug and all, have two wires which were ripped out with it. (A Red and a Grey wire) Seems simple enough to just twist the wires back together and tape up right? No. The wires broke up inside the freezer of course and you can't access them. (see additional attached picture) Somehow this sensor and it's cap popped out of it's housing and must have been hanging down as the freezer bottom drawer was opened and closed. At some point ripping it off. Now I get an 1 E Error code which indicates a freezer temperature sensor error! (Duh). Believe it or not I actually had an extended warranty and a repairman came out to fix. Long story short he indicated this was a "non-serviceable part" and the warranty company would contact me in 2 business days. After a week I called them and they told me my claim was denied because this ticket went in as an "accident", and accidents are not covered in my warranty. I won't bore you with the fight I am having over that, but in the mean time is there anyway I can fix this barring cutting away the inside top of the freezer to gain access to the wires? I can't come in via the back side. The temperature has now began to fluctuate and now things in the middle drawer compartment have started to freeze as well. Any ideas on how to repair or get a part myself? As I mentioned, it would be an easy "fix" to twist the two wires back together if I could just access them. Thanks.
