Samsung RFG297AARS Display Blinking Temperature
« on: September 11, 2013, 07:36:38 AM »

Samsung RFG297AARS is blinking the teperature on the display. The temp is set at 0 freezer 38 fridge. However the inside of the fridge isnt that temperature. A little background into the problem.

The fridge and freezer stopped working on a day that we were having rolling brown outs. I figured it failed due to something related to the electric coming in and out.
Called a tech out, and he stated that it was the overload protector (OLP) on the compressor that went bad and he wasn't going to get one in for atleast a week. I searched and found the part and had it overnnighted, thinking I could save time and money.
The first OLP came in and did nothing to improve the temperature on the fridge/freezer. I called the company that sent it, and they sent me another one overnight free of charge.
Now with the second OLP installed, the display was atleast showing the temperature going down, but the actual temp inside the fridge/freezer wasn't improving.
So I decided to wait 24hrs to see if it would improve. Well I wake up the next day, and now the display is blinking the temp and still the fride/freezer is not cold.
Any ideas or thoughts? How much money should I sink into this Crapsung?
