I have a Samsung side by side the control has missing segments. The dispenser panel is missing the little lines on the panel for the temperature. Can the light bulb be changed?
Hi, unfortunately, there is no light bulb behind the temperature lights. I’ve seen this happen multiple times on these Samsung refrigerators. Not sure why but the control board will need to be replaced to fix the issue. Have you tried unplugging the refrigerator for 2-3 minutes to see if that will reset the dispenser board? If no, I would try that. If that doesn’t reset the lights, the control would need to be replaced for sure.
Hi again, no I haven’t tried unplugging it. I will try that right now. Do you have any idea how much it will cost to fix? I’m not handy enough to try and fix it myself. My husband is away on business so I’ll just call a local repairman. Thank you!!
Yes, it would probably be best if you had a Authorized Samsung Appliance Repairman fix the refrigerator for you. I would say on average the cost to fix this particular issue is around $300. If you can wait until your husband comes back and he can make the repair it would be cheaper. I believe you can get this refrigerator control board for roughly $150.
