Samsung Refrigerator Defrost Repair

We repair all types of Samsung appliances including Refrigerators, Ovens, Dishwashers, and more. The following pictures are from a recent Samsung Refrigerator Defrost Repair in the city of San Diego. The Refrigerator Side of the appliance was not staying cool, while the Freezer Side of the unit was still nice and freezing cold.

To correct and repair the warm refrigerator we must diagnose the defrost system on the freezer side of the refrigerator. Air circulates around your refrigerator from one side to the other through the freezer-side and back out again to the refrigerator-side.

This process repeats and is why we can have a freezer-side, and a separate refrigerator side. The freezer side is responsible for keeping the refrigerator side cool. When the path that the air takes through the airways in the refrigerator is blocked, the refrigerator side will warm up while the freezer side stays nice and cool.

Once we have the hideaway panels removed we are able to fully diagnose the defrosting and/or cooling problem with the refrigerator. Most “Frost-free” refrigerators use the same defrost system technique to keep your refrigerator cold and free of frost build-up.
