Yes, the fan by the compressor. part number DRCP5030LA.
We will get a new fan and replace it when we go to Mallorca on 1st July. can we hold off on the response until we see if this works, please. we tried to get a Samsung engineer to come out but after a lot of difficulty getting contact no one turned up. We had 2 local engineers, 1 a friend of our neighbour and one from an ad in the local paper. neither were confident what the problem was. The first walked away, the 2nd one suggested replacing both circuit boards on the top and the fan at a cost of 600€ but could not guarantee it would work then. You can understand us being a bit sceptical. We thought of throwing it away, but it had cost us a lot only 4 years ago and then more to replace parts and pay call out fees. We'll happily pay up if the problem is fixed, but are concerned about throwing good money after bad.
I've looked on line, the site you recommended is priced in $, also I can't identify the same part. I've found on buyspares.co.uk a fan that looks similar with a part number of DREP5020LB. Called Motor Assy-Compressor New. do you know if this will fit? It's priced at £54.99. is this reasonable?
Thanks Michael. I think that's all you can do till we get the fan fitted. How do we get back to you if we need more help on this without starting again?
