I apologize for your experience thus far. If you could post your transaction number, I'd like to see if we can investigate this issue for you.
I have a bridge model number RS 261M DWP that we purchased last November. As temperatures increased with warmer weather we started buying ice cream and noted that it was impossible to scoop ice cream even with a heavy-duty spoon out of the freezer and in fact had the microwave a full carton for almost a minute to get it to scooping temperature.
I checked the temperature in the freezer and found out it was running from 0° to -10° and I had the temperature setting with the controls on the front of the unit set for the warmest temperature I could get in the freezer.
I called Samsung and They set up an appointment with A & E and when the tech came out he diagnosed the problem as a thermistor but told me he could not order the part as it was shown as a collect call even though the refrigerator was made in October 2012 and I showed him proof that I purchased it in November 2012.
I have now had 7 or 8 appointments, one was a no-show and another was canceled and they have replaced a cooling fan and thermistor unit in the my freezer and the control board and as of this morning my refrigerator is still at 0° or less and I am having to run the refrigerator at near the top of the light scale (the coldest) to keep it around 40° where it should be.
Of note Samsung customer service cannot seem to relay the fact that my unit is in warranty even though they have the serial number which tells them when it was made and every call I have ever made to Samsung results in a non-warranty call. A & E has been able to correct the collect calls to warranty calls over the phone and all but the 1st appointment. So now when I need assistance I call A & E directly and so far they are about 50/50 on getting proper documentation to their tech that this is a warranty call.
3 of the tax that have been here have told me that 0° or last at the warmest temperature is entirely too cold for the freezer and at the same time I am worried that I am running the refrigerator at a higher light number that I should have to to keep it at a proper temperature.
I must say that this is the worst customer service and the worst attempt at trying to repair an appliance that I've ever been through in my life.
