Hi ,

     It has been 8 yrs since I purchased my refrigerator and started having issues with ice build up and freezing around the evaporator coil. I am surprised to see so many people reporting it and it is a common issue with Samsung refrigerators. I tried requesting for repair but everyone says there is no permanent solution of this. And every time this happens I need to shut off the power for 24hrs and let the ice melt and drain the water. This is pretty annoying and I am so disappointed. Before loosing any money on a recurring problem wanted to check in the community here to see on the reality of no permanent solution for this. Has anyone used Samsung authorized personnel and had a permanent solution for this?

 Appreciate any guidance and inputs here.

 

Thanks,

I just posted a solution that has been working for me now for two years. See:

https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Kitchen-and-Family-Hub/RF23HCEDBSR-AA-freezes-need-to-defrost-ev...

The fridge ran okay for about 18 months and then I started getting the fan noise from ice buildup. It was a long slog to figure out what needed to be done. At least in my case, my home-brew solution was very effective. The source of the problem was a bad evaporator cover seal. My assessment was that this was due to wires that were improperly routed at time of manufacture. Check out my other post. Good luck.

I would like to see the solution to the problem.  It was posted less then 2 months ago and is already archived.  Is there a way to access archived solutions?
