This answer was rated:

My Samsung Freezer RZ80FBBB which is not very old has just stopped working. The alarm light is on so there is power to the unit. When I open and close the door the light in the freezer intermittently comes on but mainly there appears to be no life in the freezer. At the moment all of the digital display is off and the whole thing seems dead. Help|||
Hi I am Tech Michael, I am sorry to hear that.
Please be patient as these are technical issues and I want to guide you the best way possible to save you money and time;-)
How old is your freezer exactly?
Can you hear the compressor behind the unit?
Also any heavy frost on the rear wall inside your freezer?
Thank you
Tech Michael

Hi Michael

I purchased it in January 2013. There is no noise at all coming from the unit. There does not appear to be any heavy frost on the rear wall. The alarm light has come on again.


Hi Gary, this is most likely the main control board in the back of the unit. But since it is so new, I wouldn't replace it. That part is expensive but you are still fully covered under the manufacturers warranty. You will need to call them to set up repair.
Samsung is very good about this.
If for some reason you want to replace the main board please let me know as we can go a lot further with this;-)
I will stick with you until this is fixed, please don't forget to rate my service to you before you close this page. I will be available to you at no additional cost , you can then get in touch with me anytime by simply replying to this message.
Thank you and have a great day !
