I have a 2.5 year old side by side samsung fridge that ices

Resolved Question:

I have a 2.5 year old side by side samsung fridge that ices up around the fan (makes the loud noise until the fan stops). I unplug the unit for a day to defrost and it does it again in about 3 months. I've read online that the issue is a design flaw and that no fix will actually take care of the issue. Maybe those were just angry people posting those comments so I would like an expert opinion before I proceed. I know there are mulitple parts that can cause the ice to build up and from what I've read, replacing any one of them is not going to fix the problem. What do you think the cause is, and is it worth fixing?

Hello and thank you for using this service.

They have a repair kit for cerrtain models to solve this issue. Some do not have a kit and there is not a current fix for them. There also was a class action lawsuit filed against Samsung for this problem. Here is a link to the kit you would need and a link to the class action lawsuit.

There currently is no kit available for that model I am afraid.
