What is wrong with this refrigerator My Samsung frig, model

Resolved Question:

What is wrong with this refrigerator? My Samsung frig, model RB1955VQ, stops cooling after a day or two. The digital display will say it's the right temp, say 0 freezer, 34 frig. Not the case, more like 50 freezer, 60 frig. If I unplug it and replug it will cool then with a day maybe two it stops. I have had the evaporator moter, main board, and temp senor replaced and this thing still will not stay cold. It will be five years old this July.

Did they search out and test all the wiring with a tester?
If there is a broken copper wire inside the insulation it will heat up and then expand enough to not make contact. most people do not take the time to run through all these.
But after you replaced all these parts it must be something unusual.

Sounds like you may have dirt in your cooling system that is causing an intermittent
blockage of the coolant.
Did they change the dryer assy( # XXXXX in the diagram)
And the assy pipe suction (#24) If there is something in the system causing a blockage it may also be in the Condenser
Vacuum pumping out the system completely before refilling it with freon is supposed to vacate this stuff.
You may have an intermittent compressor relay that acts up when it gets hot.
