I have a twin cooling double door Samsung the fridge is warm

Customer Question
Hi I have a twin...
Hi I have a twin cooling double door Samsung the fridge is warm and the freezer is cool just sometimes cooler than other times, I ran the fault codes and it came up with a fridge defrost sensor so I had it replaced the service guy said if this doesn't work then it's the compressor, it didn't work .but after reading various stories it could be a few things, so far I've taken the bottom panel on the rear and finding everything caked in dust and webs I've cleaned it well, I noticed the fan next to the compressor running but the compressor seemed hot, when I start the fridge it clicks 3 times some say it's the relay or something but if you ask me I think the air isn't circulating at all I feel nothing coming out of the fridge vents

The compressor feels hot to touch after running a bit. That's normal. Will you please send the model number, so I can find the technical information I need to assist you? Thank you.

OK. Thank you. When you vacuumed, did you remove a layer of lint and dust from the condenser coil radiator? If not, do that, and give the fridge a couple of hours to cool down, and stabilize. If you need more assistance, please let me know.

Hi again so I cleaned the fins as well as I could, the temp came down overnight and reads correct but the food and the temp inside the fridge just doesn't feel as cold as other refrigerators I don't think it's a safe temp
AU Appliance Technician: John, restaurant equipment technician replied 1 year ago

The best temperature for the freezer is 0 t0 5 degrees, and for the refrigerator is 42 to 45 degrees. If you doubt the temperature display, you'll need to check the section with a refrigerator thermometer. You can buy a shelf type mechanical at any good hardware or building supply store. Please let me know if you need more help.

It's reading as 3 degrees C which is colder than your recommended F of 40 off degrees. But it's probably actually quite warm as it feels no way near cold enough, food is going off very quickly and milk is curdling. Why isn't it cold but reads colder?
AU Appliance Technician: John, restaurant equipment technician replied 1 year ago

The defrost sensor needs to be replaced. It's not turning the heater off. Its part number is ***** and its price is $56.54. You can buy it at www.spares.bigwarehouse.com.au.

I don't mean to sound rude, but I cannot rate your service as the problem is not fixed. Unless I use this as the basis of your rating?

Hi my name is ***** ***** I can help you with your problem - firstly can you confirm that the fan in the fridge unit is working and spinning?

Hi please tell me how I can check the fan? Where is it located? At this stage it doesn't sound like it is working and I feel no air flowing out of the twin cooling vents on the back of the fridge . Thanks
AU Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK the fan is controlled by the door switch which also controls the lights inside - so open the door locate the door switch and you should hear the fan if you press it in. The fan is fitted behind the lower evaporator cover at the bottom of the fridge cavity.

I can't locate a switch but there is a white flat thing in the door hinge which could be a sensor rather than a switch. The double door model of the unit is fairly current maybe they don't have a door switch that can be pushed?
