Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

Our samsung RS267BARB fridge's light is blinking and feels warm

Our fridge light(the actual number of current temp, 34) keeps on blinking and it feels warmer than 34 deg; how can we fix this? I read some of the threads here suggesting re-plugging this but I don't think we can reach behind our fridge; any other solutions such as pressing certain buttons(we've tried)? thx.

    I have the same problem, but with a RS21JGUS. The digits that show the temperature in the fridge blinks and it gets warmer inside. This occurs from time to time and then goes back to normal.
    Unplugging the power doesn't help.

    Anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be?

This problem comes only when there is a frequent power failur in this case switchoff your refrgerator power for 3-5hrs and tern it on (the resion for this problem there isno memory backup in the mail pcb normally refrigerator should go to defrost mode 8hrs once but if therer is frequent power failure at your place like more than3-5 times i a day defrost cyclewill be keep on postponding finally the inside air circulation duct will be blocked and refrigerator dosnt cool and sensors of the fridge doesnt sense cooling and display will blink)

If you cannot reach the plug, then turn off the breaker that feeds it in your electrical panel; most electrical codes require a separate power feed for refrigerators.

The temp says 14 and 8 but should be -21 and 3? Can anyone help


Controlling the Freezer temperature
The freezer temperature can be set between -14°C (8°F) and -25?C (-14°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the freezer button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display. Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt at -16?C (4°F). The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°C (8°F) and -25?C (-14°F). When the display reaches -14?C (8°F), it will begin again at -25?C (-14°F). Five seconds after the new temperature is set the display will again show the actual current
freezer temperature. However, this number will change as the Freezer adjusts to the new temperature. The top and bottom guards in the freezer of this model are the two star sections, so the
temperature in two star sections are slightly higher than other freezer compartment.

Controlling the Fridge temperature
The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7?C (45°F) and 1?C (34°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the
temperature display. The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process. Press the fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will
begin tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display. The temperature of the freezer or the refrigerator may rise from opening the doors too frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot food is placed in either side. This may cause the digital display to blink. Once the freezer and refrigerator return to their normal set temperatures the blinking will stop.
If the blinking continues, you may need to "reset" the refrigerator. Try unplugging the appliance, wait about 10 minutes and then plug back in.

The refrigerator does not work at all or it does not chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air from circulating?

Samsung freezer not working light blinking but fridge is working


There must be lot of dirt and dust on the coolant tubes running from compressor in the rear. To solve that...do the following.
Disconnect the refrigerator. Pull it out so you can access the rear bottom end of the fridge where you can go to the black compressor. You will find tiny tubes running on black flat curved sheets. Feel the tubes and clean the entire area with cleaning solution or water with a damp cloth. After cleaning and drying, connect the electricity and the fridge will work fine.

Control panel not working Samsung refrigerator model rs2533sw. Not cooling.


I have a samsung refrigertor rs2555sl and my control panel stopped working after I turned the power off to the house (to install a light fixture elsewhere). There was one green light blinking on the refrigerator temp display.

Hold down the "power freeze" and "power cool" buttons at the same time for at least 8 seconds. This is a self diagnostic program. A number should appear on the refrigerator temp display (1-9)...it will hold for 30 seconds and then the panel should function again.

In my case the number that appeared was "3" which can indicate a multitude of things including a short circuit or power outage (which was it was for me).

Hope this helps!

Fridge condensation - freezer thawing


OK now I'm wondering are theses numbers your getting 4 -9 the actual temps of the refrigerator and the freezer? and do they feel this cold and correct to you? I know the refrigerator side shouldn't be below 34 or so and definitely not below 32. If this is correct and the numbers are not settings but temps. (Now if you have a touch pad its electronic. If it has knobs it has a separate defrost and thermostat and are electro-mechanical)
If electronic Your control board and possibly defrost control are out.
It would more likely be the sensors going to the board(s) It will both sensors have the possibility of causing your problem. 1 will control the run of the compressor (and this one could and probably is connected to the inside coil) and 1 will control the air damper tween the refdg and freezer compartments, and may turn on the inside fan operation too.

(this would be my first suspect if these are degrees numbers). Look at the thermostat control see if it is attached to the indoor coil (usually the tube leavign the indoor section. If its not attached its not sensing the coil temp and when goes into defrost wala its not senmsing temps like its designed to do. Look for a broken clip or possible a plastic wire tie that holds this sensor in place.

Please get back to me with what you see - find on this look up.

Have a 2 year old SAMSUNG RS2545SH Side by Side


Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
