Samsung bottom-mount refrigerator has problems after being unplugged
Samsung bottom-mount refrigerator, RB1855SL, was unplugged for 5 days for kitchen remodel.
Once plugged back in, it begins to cool but the freezer only cools for one cycle. After one cooling cycle, the LCD temp display starts to blink and the freezer side stops cooling.
Tried unplugging the unit, and also resetting the computer (done by holding any two buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds) to no avail. After resetting, it always does the same - cools for one cycle and then stops, freezer side LCD temp display starts to blink (the entire thing, not a segment)
I will probably order the PCB board as well as the temp sensors, but wanted to see if anybody here at applianceblog.com has anything to say about this problem??
Thanks in advance!!!!!!!

Well I replaced both defrost thermistors, replaced both temperature sensors, and replaced PCB.
Still same problem. Cools for about a day then stops, all digits start blinking.
All advice is greatly appreciated.
