Введение

This fix does not require any special skills. As long as you follow the guide with all safety precautions, you will be able to perform a successful replacement of the evaporating clip in your Samsung Refrigerator.

Problem only resolved for about 6 months post clip replacement. Now every 2 months back to defrosting my refrigerator, under the crisper drawer. Now the entire section of the drain is frozen. Very frustraing.
