Samsung refrigerator is not the best brand to buy.

Usually, I recommend people do not buy Samsung fridges.

Here are a few common complaints and reasons why some people might avoid Samsung refrigerators:

  • Some Samsung refrigerators have faulty ice makers that can get jammed, produce too much ice, or completely fail.
  • Some Samsung refrigerators have been reported to experience issues with the fan in the fridge compartment freezing, leading to inconsistent temperature control and food spoilage.
  • One common issue with refrigerators is the accumulation of water in the crispers or other parts, leading to leaks and potential damage to the interior of the appliance.
  • Some Samsung refrigerator users have reported concerns with the durability and reliability of these appliances. Components may break or malfunction after a relatively short period of use.
  • Customer Service: Some customers have reported difficulties in obtaining timely and satisfactory customer service and support from Samsung when issues arise with their refrigerators.

If you own a Samsung fridge and it’s not working, there may still be a chance to fix it.

Samsung Ice Maker Repair

Samsung come out with several different solutions for the ice maker. But to be honest, the Samsung ice-maker is not had real a permanent solution.

So if you have a Samsung fridge and think, my bigger concern is the ice maker not working. And I want a 100% solution. I’m sorry, to tell you but it’s not going to happen. And I would rather just recommend you buy a new fridge instead of spending over $300 or $400 trying to fix it, and then in the end you still will have the same issue.

In this video, I show how to defrost the Ice Maker chamber on Samsung Refrigerators by activating the Forced Defrost Mode. This Would be considered a temporary fix for these poorly designed Ice Makers

Samsung Refrigerator Ice Build-Up. How to Fully Fix it Forever

Then for the fridge department word the people hearing sound like we’re like a noise of the fan or defend maybe not cycling and one of the symptoms you will have the fridge will not get stay cold is most likely is due to the like ice buildup in the back of their fridge fan where you have inside of the fridge. And so for those issue, we do have a solution. And the solution is a few different steps.

So one of them you have to take the drain line make sure it’s not clogged, maybe installed the heating extension for the heater to make sure the pipe will stay warm during the defrost cycle. Then there was another one you want to make sure you said the code 117 to extend the defrost cycle from 30 minutes to at least 45 minutes. And the third one, you want to make sure you want to put the heating tray on the top of the condenser and connects straight to the heating element.

So when the fridge will go on the defrost cycle on the defrost cycle in the heating table warming up the condenser from the top and will keep the from fan keep the fan from freezing up as the frost then what else we do we set the code with the will clean the drain hose with flash the hose was the steamer now and just what is there like a solution for your like for the fridge department and how many times we done this way for our clients, all of our clients after we came to fix in some different appliance, for example washer repair or dryer repair , we asked our clients how this works. And people are happy saying like oh you know John still working.

So we feel we provide people permanent solution for the fridge department.

But I want to disappoint you for the icemaker is 100% no solution.


Samsung fridge Leaking Water Inside Drawers

Now sometimes fridges they leaks, why they leaks because of the drain pipe get clogged , is supposed to drain the water in the back of the fridge in a special tray will clogged up with the ice. And while it might happen, maybe you get some stair phone for Styrofoam fall inside of the drain pipe and the water will not escaping quick enough and it will sit there and eventually when the fridge goes back into normal cycle, it will freeze up again. And then to defrost the pipe you cannot do with the heater because the heater will just warm up their area, we cannot target the specific pipe. So you have to have actual steamer to clean it by hand. So you don’t want to do it this way. So what you want to do you want to maybe install the extension for the heating element to put this extension inside of the pipe and keep those pipes from freezing up.

But most of the time, what I do I take the vacuum, that vacuum cleaner I cycled like I steam with the pipe. I then take the vacuum I suck from the back whatever is there in the pipe or maybe blow the pipe out just to try to blow it out. And 90% of the time it’s worked for most of my clients, but sometimes clients called me a bake and say, John, my fridge is still leaking.

I tell them you know what I can come one more time at no charge. I will do my best again I will try to blow it may be the last time we didn’t work you know maybe I couldn’t suck it out there thinks what’s inside of the pipe. But honestly, it’s so hard to see what’s in there. So I will come a second time, I will do my best. And after that if still will have same issue. I would rather you to buy a new fridge or like I would just tell you to go buy a new fridge instead of keep wasting the money, and keep coming and keep trying it or just keeping up with the lake, if it’s not the bad one.

Samsung fridges they’re they bad in this one cases they good in a different cases in compare LG.

LG has good ice maker, but they have a bad compressor.


Samsung refrigerator leaking Freon

Now the Samsung they have good compressors, but sometimes was the new new fridges. Well we’ve been noticing over here like last two years, we having more and more new fridges which have a refrigerant issue ( Like R134A) and why you believe or why people are having coolant issue because the manufactory they using cheap material for the condenser coil and it’s aluminium.

Those aluminium is start rusting from inside. And so eventually you’re not gonna get a big Hole but you will get the pinch hole and this hole will slowly started leaking R134A. And then your option is already a call somebody to come to try to find the lake, and if you lucky you will find a Leak then you can patch it up and the refill with the new R134A, or sometimes you cannot find the lake and then in those case, you have to get rid of the fridge and buy a new one.

So in overall the I would say if to pick up if you’re in the Home Depot or Lowe’s wherever place and they tell you oh by Samsung or LG. I would pick LG. The reason why they have a compressor issue yes everybody know about but maybe you like and your compressor will last you maybe eight or nine years or six years you know and forehead 12 hungrier like a 428 hungry. You bind the fridge unless you six seven years is not too bad.

Just to be honest, it’s not too bad. You didn’t pay 5000 for the fridge is only 25 Hungry is not bad so you can have it but if I would stand there if I will be in a Home Depot and I have opportunity to pick LG Samsung or GE or Bosch. Obviously I will pick the priority to GE if not GE then Bosch. By the Bosch is more higher end fridge. And those fridges they are more expensive, but they are more durable. So if you are in the market to bind your fridge, I think the Bosch is the best way to go. But if it’s too expensive, I will buy General Electric GE their brand what they call adorer is made by GE but the brand calls GE adorer and those adorer they offer people like two years warranty on the parts and labor so if I would on the market to buy affordable fridge versus to bye Click Here to Learn More.
