Samsung, water under crisper draw
« on: June 10, 2013, 09:18:05 PM »

I've read alot of posts about water under the crisper draws on the Samsung bottom mount units Samsung is aware of this issue and in response they have put together a "seal kit" and a "heater clip". There is no bulletin about this, it just says "water under crisper draw" I've installed a couple of the "Kits", all it is a combination of insulation tape  meant to stop air from getting into the fresh food section.  The tape goes around the water tubing at the top of the unit, around the water lines going to the water bottle, especially the openings going into the cabinet and a few areas behind the evaporator panel. while you have this panel off the "heater clip" just fits over the heater and extends down the drain tube a little bit. Once you slide this clip over the heater make sure it fits snug for good heat transfer. That's all there is to it, the belief is the combination of all these little openings are causing the water condense on the cabinet walls and collection under the crisper draws. I hope this helps with any questions on this issue.

I had a customer who had this problem and i couldnt solve it. She had me out for another job and she said she had called samsung and they sent out a samsung authorized repairman. He installed these parts:DA61-06796A DRAIN CLIP and DA97-11823A EVAPORATOR COVER. i got these numbers off their invoice. She said he said that these parts would solve the problem. It had only been a month, but it had not leaked. She is supposed to tell me if it does.

There is more to the repair than just changing the parts. I ordered a kit from this guy and it walked me through it step by step.
