Samsung freezer temp display is wrong
« on: July 22, 2019, 01:15:20 PM »

Apparently a common problem: Samsung freezer (drawer on bottom, french door refrigerator on top) indicates the correct set temperature (-2F) but actual temperature is significantly warmer (in my case, 24F).  Refrigerator is working fine.  After 2 service calls, main control board and thermo-sensor in freezer have been replaced.  Shutting off, waiting 3 minutes and re-energizing makes the display indicate correct interior temperature.  It drops to -2F but actual temp never falls below 24F.  Power Cool does nothing.  I chatted with Samsung; no help.  The fridge is 9 years old.

After lengthy Internet research and on this site, all I could find is that one post indicated replacing the "thermofuse".  According to AppliancePartsPro, the only "fuse" available for this Samsung model is no longer available. 

This appears to be a simple problem.  It feels really awful to replace an entire appliance for what is probably a simple fix.  Any suggestions?
