I have a 7-year old Samsung RFG297HDRS refrigerator that has basically stopped cooling. The refrigerator compartment still works somewhat but the freezer doesn't cool at all. This is a "twin cooling" model which features separate evaporator coils for each compartment. I checked that all three fans are working properly, and the sensors seem to be good as well. The inverter board LED is staying lit, and self-diagnostic shows no error code. The condenser coil is reasonably clean. However, even in forced freeze mode, only the evaporator coil in the refrigerator compartment gets somewhat cold, maintaining that compartment at about 50F, while the one in the freezer compartment is not getting cold at all. Can I pretty much conclude at this point that the problem is due to refrigerant leak?
