Customer:

yes i can hear the fan


 

Customer:

actually the items are getting soft in there now


 

gst85 :

okay open the freezer.can you see any frost forming at the wall?


 

Customer:

no frost nor ice but it is quite cold in there like a fridge on high


 

Customer:

if i press on the reset button of teh ice maker, they will fall in teh tray but not automatically.


 

gst85 :

ok so if the freezer is not that cold then your fridge section will NOT cool as well either.can you pull the fridge forward to just enough to access the compressor?

Customer:

it is very heavy,I'll try


 

gst85 :

Customer:

ok it's pulled out - the back is completely covered


 

gst85 :

Customer:

gst85 :

what will need to have this done by an actual appliance technician.

this does not have to be an actual samsung technician in order to fix work on it.any appliance company will work on it
