Product Description

Door Mullion Spring Specifications

The French door divider spring fits most Samsung French door style refrigerators. The spring applies tension between components in the refrigerator, which engages and retracts the door flap. This will allow the door to close properly. If the spring is broken, damaged, or faulty the door flap will swing open and block the door from closing, and you should look to replace the part straight away to prevent further damage to the door. The spring is a genuine OEM part, is made of metal, and measures at 1 1/2" long. This part is also known as a refrigerator door mullion spring.

Broken Mullion Door spring-mullion remains open and must be manually folded in
Placed new spring pin and new spring in place with pliers-10 seconds tops. HOWEVER!! Your instruction video is INCORRECT. Spring must be placed opposite of video with bent side toward million otherwise million is flipped outward not held closed. Two frustrating days before I figured that out.

Installation Video Incorrect
The installation video notes that the door mullion spring has a bent end, and that the bent end of the spring is to be inserted into the LOWER hinge. However, on my refrigerator door, the bent end of the door mullion spring must be inserted into the UPPER hinge in order for the door to function properly. (Also noted that in your video the installer manually closed the door mullion rather than just closing the refrigerator door, another indication that the installation of the spring was incorrect.) After watching the video several times to confirm I was installing the door mullion spring according to the video instructions, I tried inserting the bent end of the door mullion spring into the upper hinge, which proved to be the correct installation of the door mull spring. What should have been a 5 minute repair turned into an ½ hour repair.

The door flap on the french door would not reset itself to go into the upper track it would just flop around freely and jam the door from being closed.
Just opened the french door took the new plactic sleeve placed it on the upper end of the spring and then inserted into the upper hole first then with a little pressure turned the bottom end of the spring and placed it into the lower hole.

I want to replace a broken mullion spring and have to remove the mullion. The mullion is held on by a plastic part that looks like two pins through a plastic hinge. How do i remove the mullion s/n y4a14adca00452d
For model number RF217ACWP
PartSelect logo
Hello Jim, thank you for your question. To remove the mullion bar, remove the two screws that hold the center hinge part number DA63-03454B, to the fridge door. When the screws are removed, gently pull up and out on the mullion bar, just a bit to remove it from the door. Gently pull the bar away from the door, but not too quickly, as there will be a wire harness connected behind that center hinge plate. Un clip the wire harness and the mullion bar will be free from the door. Reverse these steps to reinstall! I hope this helps!

Hi. This little spring on my refrigerator door broke and I need to replace it. When I look up what to buy I am so confused as what spring will fit my Samsung french door model# rf217abpn. When I look at pictures some look like 5 little coils while some look like 3. My broken one has 5 coils on one side and when looking on other side 4 coils. Please help me order the right part. Thank you for your reply! Carol

Hello Carol, Thank you for contacting us. I have researched the model you have provided and have found the part you are looking for is PartSelect Number PS4163672. Samsung may have made changes to the spring on the appliance but they have advised this is the correct prong for your model. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

The mullion flap stays closed. I have to push up on it before i shut the door in order for it to work properly. Will replacing the spring fix it?
For model number RF4287HARS
PartSelect logo
Hello Beth, Thank you for the question. This does sound like an issue with the spring. The spring applies tension between components in the refrigerator, which engages and retracts the door flap. This will allow the door to close properly. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

How to replace spring video please
For model number da81-01345b
PartSelect logo
Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not have an installation video on how to install this part. At the bottom of your mullion there is a little hole. That is where your spring is going to go inside of that little hole at the bottom. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Hi Bill, Thank you for your question. The spring is not sold separately and is only sold with the door support with mullion heater. The part number listed under your model number for the door support with mullion heater is PS4176674. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Codes 5e and 22e keep coming up even after i push red button to remove. Also door flap does not close when door ?Is shut unless we pull manually to seal flap. What parts do i need?
For model number rf4289hars/xaa
PartSelect logo
Hello Don, thank you for your question. First, one error states that your defrost sensor has failed inside the refrigerator and needs to be replaced. The other says that your fan inside the refrigerator isn't moving properly. This will be caused due to the defrost sensor failing because the frost will block the airflow and hinder the fan from moving properly. That means that the back panel inside the refrigerator would need to be removed and all the ice/frost thawed out with a hair dryer. That will get the unit cooling normally again, but the defrost sensor must be replaced to stop the frost come coming back. Once that part is replaced you can press and hold the upper right and left control panel buttons together for 5 seconds and that will clear the errors on the screen. I hope this helps!

Gentlemen/Gentlewomen: In the instructional video accompanying this part (PS4163672), Steve points out (at the 45-second mark in the video) a small sleeve in the mullion that needs to be in place to receive the mullion end of spring prior to replacing the spring. Does this refrigerator door mullion spring include the aforementioned sleeve with the spring when purchased from PartSelect? If not, does PartSelect sell this sleeve under a separate SKU? If this sleeve is a separate SKU, would you kindly identify the sleeve SKU so I may order both parts at once? One last thing; is there any lubricant needed around the ends of the spring to make it operate smoothly without binding? Thank you in advance for your attention to this inquiry. Respectfully, Mike
For model number RF266AEWP

Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. The part number for the mullion door sleeve is PS4163673. No lubricant is needed. We hope this helps!
