SAMSUNG RF263AWEP/XAA manual defrost and service manual
« on: September 30, 2012, 12:53:48 PM »
My one year old Samsung french door RF263AWEP/XAA refrigerator started getting the refrigerator condenser ice build up (and resulting fan noise) that seems to a common problem.  The unit was defrosted and a new defrost sensor was replaced under warranty but I was told that the problem will likely come back.  The tech said the new parts do not seem to be much improved based on his service calls.

I would like to know how to start the manual defrost mode and get the service manual so I can troubleshoot the next time it goes out.

Thanks,

I looked for a service manual but could not locate one. Maybe another tech will be able to find one for us.


There should also be a tech sheet with the unit that you may find helpful.
Hope you find our site helpful.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
