Customer Question
I have samsung side...

I have samsung side by side refridgerator. the Freezer is working, but the fridge will not cool. The fan and coils freeze over, so I've used a hair dryer to dethaw. After doing this successfully several times this year, now I still can't get the fridge to cool.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Stby

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I would like to.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
