A Final Fix for One of Samsung's Biggest Fridge Failures - The Dreaded "Ice Ball" That Causes Leaks, No Cooling, and More!

This kit is designed to potentially fix the following problems on a Samsung French Door Refrigerator (although it could work on other styles as well):

  • Refrigerator Cabinet Not Cooling Properly (due to ice build-up)
  • Refrigerator Cabinet with Water in Drawers
  • Refrigerator Making Noise due to Ice on Evaporator Fan
  • Refrigerator Ice Build-Up inside Refrigerator Cabinet

Please note this does not replace any part in your refrigerator: If you have a broken fan, or bad defrost heater rod, this will not fix those parts, and they will need replaced. If you have tried all the other "Solutions" to resolve any of the 4-mentioned issues and its still persisting, then a secondary heater kit is likely the solution.

Included in the FULL kit:

  1. Silicone Defrost Heater - 18" / 15-watt model and 24" / 20-watt model, 3ft Power Cord Length. Power cord can be cut down to size needed, heat probe is bendable/foldable and is extremely flexible to custom fit to a needed solution, but cannot be cut.
  2. 14-16 AWG Posi-Tap Connectors OR 3m ScotchLok Wire Splicers
  3. 10 High Temperature, 6" Cable Ties
  4. 10mil vial of dielectric grease to waterproof new electrical lines + wooden applicator

    The Moisture Kit Includes:

  5. Samsung Defrost Drain Probe DA61-06796A
  6. 30" x 2" HVAC Tape for Liner & Evaporator Panel Repair
  7. Frost King© Insulated Tape for Drain Pan / Drainage Kit Update (4pcs at 6" with notched ends for water routing under drain pan)
  8. Samsung Drain Tube Kit (DA97-04049E) - To replace the older, cheaper and usually broken Samsung OEM drain tubes with a fresh, revised drain tube set.


Included in the HEATER ONLY kit:

  1. Silicone Defrost Heater - 120V, 20 Watts, 36in Heater Length, 3ft Power Cord Length. Power cord can be cut down to size needed, heat probe is bendable/foldable and is extremely flexible to custom fit to a needed solution.

Compatability: This kit will work with all "French Door" Samsung refrigerators EXCEPT certain Flex Door models. The only known model that is incompatible is the RF23J9011 unit. If you are unsure if this kit will work with your flex-door Samsung, please contact us with your model# to confirm. 

 Note: For International orders in countries using 240v electricity, we will ship the 18" heater probe only, as it is the only style we have in that voltage. US/CA customers can choose either 18" or 24"

Great kit

I’ve been dealing with my Samsung refrigerator for about 13 years now and the latest issue was with the ice bubble in the refrigerator and frozen drain. The drain now works fine and the ice bubble has been reduced by about 50%. I’m not as concerned about the ice bubble since it doesn’t really affect the operation of the refrigerator. Easy to install and there is a YouTube video that clearly guides how to install.

Too soon to tell

Installed it a week ago and so far so good. I did notice that after I put the tape on there was another video from Ben showing an alternate place for adhesion ? Just a reminder for the Canadian buyers that there will be import duty to pay from UPS which can be paid COD or online.

Heater Kit

Excellent fix for our issues! Still having a minor issue with the drain, but we can fix it. Did end up getting a spray foam to seal any tiny air gaps. It's running smooth, not freezing up and she's quiet once again. Now, for the ice maker...another day! Such simple fixes. Samsung could have saved a lot of folks all this anguish, time, energy and money if they cared. We did end up having to get a new panel for the twin cooler, too.
