RS265LABP Samsung SxS defrost cycle
« on: May 23, 2013, 02:01:46 PM »
Hey Guys, I am looking at a Samsung SxS RS265 refrigerator that is having defrost problems. It is my first call to this type refrigerator. I would love to have a tech manual but I was also wondering if there was any defrost troubleshooting advise from the seasoned veterans. Is this system operated through a board?

Respectfully,

Mark

Yes. and there is a sensor on the evap. You can test the sensor from the control board.

Hey guys. I finally got a a tech manual for this refrigerator. They are very stingy with this information!! It turned out to be a couple of things wrong. The refrigerator side evaporator was 3/4 encased in a block of ice. The drain became blocked with ice and created a dam. Everytime the defrost heater came on the frost melted and turned to water then refroze into a layer of ice. It took 3+ hrs with a hair dryer to even get the panel off!

The problem with the freezer was the fan motor. The ice maker section was not getting cold enough to make ice. I used the diagnostic from the tech manual to find the problem.  :thanks:

Thanks AJ,

Yours is a better manual. The manual I acquired is a rough Korean to English translation and it has has somebody elses website tagged on it. I will post if you still want it.

I had no idea about the google drive. How can I get on?  :)
