Bob Fine: Thank you so much for this solution. It worked like a charm!
Michelle Thomson: Eventually the ice will kill your fan.
"I have had nothing but problems with this refrigerator and have since
discovered it has a known problem to Samsung, they just don't choose to fix
it. Since the day I purchased the appliance, puddles of water have formed
under the ice crispers. I was told this was normal. Ice began building up
in the inside back of the fridge, which eventually cause the fan to stop
working and the fridge from cooling. Conveniently out of warranty, the
service repair person told me they've fixed this many times on this Samsung
fridge and that it is an issue Samsung is aware of. They won't, however,
admit that and the $416 fix is at my own cost. Pretty ridiculous for a
fridge that cost over $1000 to purchase!"
teegirlawesome: Well, I placed the frig in "OF OF" mode and let the ice build up thaw. It
has been on "OF" mode since last night and this morning there was a pool of
water in and under the deli bin. I took it off "OF" mode for a few minutes
and display showed the freezer at -4 degrees and the frig at 34 degrees. I
did not hear the fan circulating, but then again my dog was barking at the
same time. Items in the freezer are still frozen. Placed the frig back in
"OF" model Will check the frig when I get home tonight and hopefully this
solves the problem.
Jeremy King: After defrosting the fridge you have to take off the inside back panel of
the fridge and run hot water down the back drain until it is clear enough
to put a piece of copper wire through and work it with the hot water until
it drains. The drain is clogged which causes the water in the bottom of
hampoverton65: Worked like a charm. Many thanks.
Rob redeclispe: I have the side x side and had the icing issues, I did a self test on the
control panel and showed a 22E error = FF- AUTO-DFST- ERROR. So I unplugged
the fridge and let thaw, took the interior panel off ( easier to take
panel off after thawing the fridge ) Fan had ice stuck in it and the top of
the cooling coil had about 4 inces of ice thick by 4 inches long... after
it thawed I plugged back in and checked to make sure than small fan woked,
it did, then turned the fridgr to cool to 34 dgs waited till the the next
morning to check.... ( 34dg ) accoring to temp and the manual thermometer
in fridge..also did a recheck for trouble code.... None ... btw... there is
only a 12 month warranty on the display panel and a 5 year parts and labor
on the "sealed components" and the defrost mechanism is not a "sealed
component" From what I understood "sealed component" is anything that the
freon runs through ie: compressor, evap, condenser. Good luck...Not a cheap
fridge but my last....
Lindy K: Our power went out a few days ago. Next day the entire freezer was caked
with frozen shaved ice like we were in the tundra. We got it all removed.
And then a day later the whooshing started in the ice compartment. I am
going to do what you said, and it appears that the auto defrost somehow got
messed up with the power outage. (We already had the freezer automatically
defrost to room temperature after having the fridge 5 months.) It is now
only a year old but passed any warranty. My question: will the auto
defrost kick back in or will it stay at manual ?
Ken Maskell: We have a Samsung French Door refrigerator: RF267AERS and have experienced
the icing and eventual noise from the fan blades hitting ice. Because it
was 32 degrees outside, I took all the food out of the refrigerator and put
it in the garage. Took the ice out of the ice maker and put it in the
freezer. Removed all the shelves and drawers. Left food in freezer. And
unplugged the refrigerator.
Used a hair dryer on the ice in the top slots and in the very top of the
center shelf slot just below the round logo "Twin Cooling". Once the
melting started, water would slowly drip out of the two bottom slots. It
appears to come from behind the Twin Cooling circle and from the top slots.
I also directed the hair dryer air in the slots on the right and left of
the Twin Cooling circle. Took me about 45 minutes.
Fan noise has stopped and the ice is gone from the slots. Plugged in the
unit and the temperature showed 26 degrees in freezer and 80 degrees in
refrigerator. Turned on the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons. Checked it
a few hours later. Temperature was down to 0 in freezer and 46 in
refrigerator. There were two small puddles of water in the bottom of the
refrigerator -- two paper towels absorbed all the water.
I'll let you know how long it stays ice free -- or at least when the fan
noise starts again.
