    Samsung bottom freezer issue

    Model Number:
    Brand: Brand
    Age: Less than 1 year

    Originally started with no ice. Replaced the ice maker, still nothing. While everything was out of the freezer, held drawer switch, fan works. Checked freezer evap heater, has continuity. Placed thermometers in upper drawer and bottom bin. Upper, 20-40 degrees. Bottom, 15-25. Probably never gets cold enough to trigger harvest on the ice maker. I can manually harvest via test switch. Checked defrost bi-metal stat and it has continuity at room temp. It is rated 60/40. Watched a bunch of YouTube videos and they all said it should have no continuity at room temp. Ordered a replacement, tested it before installing and it too has continuity at room temp. Installed it anyway, no difference. Also replaced the main control and inverter boards. No change. I can’t help but think the problem is with defective bi-metal thermostats, keeping the evap heater running continuously. I’m ready to cut bait on this refrigerator, but if the fix is another $30 bi-metal defrost stat that works properly, then why dump $1500-2000 on the next defective refrigerator. Any and all ideas welcome. Thanks!
