    Hi, very nice vtutorial!
    could it be possible that the problem i have is just a defective defrost sensor? how do i test this sensor to know if it is defective or not before i replace the difficult defrost heater. the thermal fuse, if defective what is the symtom? thanks.

    Looks like the same fridge I have except Stainless.
    Do you know the exact part# for just the Defrost Heater by itself?
    I have had problems with my Samsung RS267lash Fridge over
    freezing and causing inside middle vent hole and fan to eventually freeze to
    point of no airflow , then fan grinding eventually to a halt from being frozen.
    When I force the fridge into defrost mode, it does not seem
    to melt the ice either.
    *Theoretically, if I force it into Defrost mode, the heating
    elements should come on and should be able to test 110V Correct?

    Don’t think it’s a bad Defrost heating element ,  last time I checked this it showed 96 ohmsDefrost sensor (yellow) was +- 2K at Room temperature.
    Thermal fuse (Red black /w white foam) = 0 ohms

    Not sure what to do now.

    Great idea! I’ve found a defrost heater replacement for this, but it is only available in UK voltages. If replacing the sensors doesn’t work, I’ll be giving this a try!

    great video . i think it would be better next time to drill out 1/8 pop rivet holding bottom drain heater tray and replace with new pan, that way you dont have to fool around bending heater hold down clamps. but other than that great video. i was a commercial refrigeration serviceman for .hussmann for almost 32 years great job

    I really can’t thank you enough for this video as there are so many heaters and I could not figure out what to do. My only question is…how do I know what went bad, the heater or the sensor?

  6. Thomas Sankara says:

    Great educative video. I have a Samsung side by side. Only half of my evaporator is frosting. The other half has not cooling which is affecting the cooling in the fridge section(43 degrees). The freezer section on the other hand works fine. What could be the cause? Thanks.

  7. Joanna Wyatt says:

    Thanks so much for putting this video clip together. I was able to replace my Samsung fridge defrost element heater myself without calling in an expensive repair person. Great instructions and now I have a fridge that works just like the day I bought it. ***
