Just had the same problem with my one year old Samsung and like you, used a hair dryer to melt the ice in the vents. Now it is making a loud noise which leads me to believe there is still ice beneath the panel. I had an old frigidaire that was still working after 23 years and replaced it with a Samsung only because of a rehab. Seems that was a mistake.
Did it work to tilt the front of the frig up as someone suggested?
I have model RF 23 HTED BSR/AAA
Mine has frozen every month since November 2017. In March I was told to raise the front. Samsung actually sent me an email on how to do it. They told me it was an easy fix and will take care of everything. I raised The wheels off the ground . A month later it froze again. I defrosted and raised it even higher. 28 days later it froze again. I called Samsing customer service, Cassondra was unfamiliar with raising it . She was also unaware of a class action lawsuit. She did have a company contact me to service it. They are scheduled for tomorrow morning. I've owned it for 2 1/2 years it is no longer under warranty and cost $99 for the service appointment tomorrow. $99 only covers diagnosing the problem. I'm afraid they don't know how to fix it and it will be a waste of money. Anybody have any permanent solutions?
This is so disgusting that it's an issue ongoing so long affecting so many people work no resolution from Samsung.
I'd like to know if there's a class action in Canada.
This is an unethical company that doesn't deserve any of anyone's money.
I'm getting to the point that of I could I would dig a hole in the ground and fill it with sawdust to keep my food cold. Winter's okay.
How could you sell this to someone?
This worked fine for 3 years. What changed? Not the levelling. That's been fine since the beginning.
No, tilting the fridge doesn't fix it. The only way is to seal the leak behind the evap cover. Take a look at my video where I go into detail on how to permanently fix this.
