I checked out this refrigerator for a client.  The refrigerator side was warm and the freezer normal.  I disassembled the refrigerator side and found a coil covered with ice.  First time I've seen a coil dedicated to the refrigerator side. 

Having no info to diagnose it, I replaced the defrost sensor.  This did not fix it.  I need to find the procedures for diagnosing the problem.  Is this available on the internet?  If not, is there a way to get the info?

Thx...

Check the continuity of the defrost heater. If it's open, that's the problem. Also common on these units.

When I checked it the first time, it was completely covered in ice.  The ice had taken all the space available behind the cover.  It has been manually defrosted by the owner several times while I am searching for answers.  I did check the heater and remember that it did have continuity.  Perhaps it has too much resistance.  I don't remember the exact ohms resistance it has.  I will get back there to check it. 

Is there anything else I can check?

Thx...
Brandt

I did check the defrost heater and found it open.  I remember checking it the first time I looked at it but am not sure why I didn't find it bad then.  Is it available here for this refrigerator?  I am going to try to find it through the website here. 

Thx...
Brandt

Yes, it's available. Comes attached to a new evaporator. You can remove the attached heater from the new evap coil and install it on the old evap. Tedious but do-able.

Gotta love Samsing, to get the defrost heater replaced you have to order and replace the whole evaperator coil which is part of the sealed system, 
which is a major repair..so you DO NOT want to find an open defrost heater....wonder what the dude that dreamed this up was smokin....:tokin:

 
...  found a way to  replace the broken one...

... It's not fastened by screws...

... rivets which you'll have to grind the head off. When you put it back together you could put more rivets in or sheet metal screws.

... pictures that show the separated defrost heater and evaporator...

... The old one was burned out at the joint.

Maytag or Samsung part 
I'm not sure which part number you need ...
