Most common repairs needed to fix a Samsung refrigerator
Electronic Control Board Replacement
A defective electronic control board can lead to various failures in a refrigerator, including a lack of power or cooling and water leaking. This is because the board serves as the brain of the refrigerator, controlling crucial operations such as regulating internal temperatures, running fans, managing defrost cycles, overseeing the ice maker, and controlling dispenser functions. If the electronic control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between many different components, including automatic doors if equipped. A failing board may cause a chattering or clicking noise from the refrigerator and may emit a burning odor. Due to the potential impact on multiple components, it is advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests on the board to confirm if replacement is necessary.
LED Light Assembly Replacement
If the refrigerator LED light assembly is bad, the refrigerator interior won’t be illuminated, which can create the perception of a complete loss of power. Additionally, a bad LED light assembly may impact the display, particularly if the refrigerator features an integrated control panel. You might see the display as dim, hindering the ability to read and interact with the controls effectively. In some cases, a faulty LED assembly may flicker or produce uneven lighting.
User Interface Control Replacement
When a refrigerator user interface control becomes inoperative, it loses the ability to communicate with the main control board, affecting settings like temperature or ice maker status. The interface will cease to display, creating the appearance of a powerless refrigerator. In some instances, it may only show an error code. If the user interface solely controls drawer temperature settings, a crack in the shelf housing the interface can prevent it from responding to the selected settings.
