The temp shown digitally outside reads from 47 to 54, but the inside temp seems to stay at 41. I have reset the temp to 34 many times and have used the power cool button. The problem has persisted for several days. I also tried unplugging it for a few minutes hoping that it would reset when plugged back in, but no luck. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated! ps the freezer works fine.

first step you can do without electrical tests is to remove all shelves and remove the back panels in both fridge and freezer section to make sure neither evaporator has excessive frost

your fridge has an evaporator in both compartments,samsung has them attached to the compressor in series, i have seen a frosted freezer cause poor cooling and erratic display for the fresh food section before

both evaporators have a thermal fuse for a safety device, this means if one is frosted over you can NOT use a heating device to melt the ice cause you may trip this fuse,which does not reset once tripped, you are going to have to leave the doors open and let all the frost melt

us with expierience know how to defrost these by removing this fuse then using heat, but i suggest you be patient and let it melt

if neither evaporator is frosted over post back and we start the next steps which require you to have a multi-meter

btw... heavy frosted evaporator will look like a block of snow, normal frost you will see all the fins on the evaporator with a thin film of frost like a frosted windshield, you can post pictures if not sure

carefull around the evaporators, the fins will cut you up!!!

Thanks so much for the quick advise! There was a heavy frost around the fridge part, but the freezer was fine. It has now defrosted and it appears that someone has made a repair back here before. On the very upper right side, the top black loop and wire have all been coated in some kind of black plastic goo and then all wrapped with tin foil. At some time, the goo started to drip down the inside of the fins a little, although it seems stable now. Any idea what this is or what I should do now? Thanks, Ron

next step is to learn how to fix a samsung fridge

here is your service manual

http://cid-161d5dae096a24ce.office.live.com/self.aspx/service%20manuals/samsung/rb1855.pdf

page 51   part numbered 22 is the thermal fuse, this may be wrapped in tinfoil, it needs to be tested with a meter

read through the manual, the korean to english translation sucks but somewhere it will tell you how to run self diagnostics which may test the fuse for you

post any questions you may have

sorry but i probably wont make it back online tonight, i have 2 kids with stomach flu keeping me pretty busy right now, but maybe one of the other techs will jump in to answer tonight

if not i'll get back to you as soon as possible

btw, that manual is for your model destined for the canadian market, it should be identical to your product

the manual for the american product was not working on their site

the frost will come back, then it will stop cooling again
