Fresh section working fine. Freezer section will not reach temp, gets to 40* F and no lower.
Have checked condenser and fan to ensure it is clean and running.
There is a service tap soldered in place, that leads me to think this unit has been serviced in past. (Came with house two years ago.)
As my gauges have six foot hoses, waiting till Tues to pick up some new shorter ones before testing pressures.
I've heard some about comman issues with Evap coils freezer dams happening.
Any insight?

Service manuals would be a great help as well.
Thx in advance.

I would bet that a little top off of 134a will fix the problem.  Service taps always leak a little.

Yea, once my week is done, I'll tie into it on Sat.  Just heard so many horror stories on the net about issues like air leaks, bad defrost relays on main board, etc wanting to test the board to see if anyone had first hand knowledge. 

I'll update after checking things out.
Might even get some points with Honey bunny for fixing it on the cheap. Saving us some $$, as she starting looking at new replacements. Oh the horror.. :)  :D

Ok from dealings with this model first pull out the back wall and wait til it freezes up then check the temp if it goes into a defrost mode when it hits 30 then you have a board issue I would check they sensors to cause its going into adaptive defrost I have played with these models sooo many times most of the time its a sensor but i will tell you this I have one I couldn't fix no matter what I did or try it worked fine for over a year then it started that defrost at 30 still don't know what it was even asked Samsung tech and they lended up buying him out  .. My two cents
