Question about Refrigerators
The door alarm goes off every 4 minutes and the temp is up to 9 degrees I Have similar problem with samsung refrigerator SRL551DP, door alarm goes off every 60 seconds for no apparent reason all doors closed, we tried reseting it by unplugging it for 15 min as suggested by samsung customer service, but to no avail, and the temperature of the fridge is unresponsive stays at 9 degrees, i called them again and they said that was the only solution they could suggest..
sounds like the defrost system is cutting up, it melts the ice in the freezer compartment to allow cold air from freezer to travel to fresh food side and back again, could be a damper control but very rare event.we use to have to melt ice manually in freezers now we have automatic defrosters do it for us. this is not the easiest repair but the defrost sysem is replacable and not the end of your frig.u can empty frig and turn it off for 24 hrs with doors open and let it defrost naturally,so as to make sure that it is a defrostsystem, after 24 hrs turn back on and see if it works correctly after 6 or 8 hrs, if so definite defrost problem.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

It seems the problem is with the control unit board.You can replace it or take it to the service center to service the board.If your fridge is under warranty and if you dont have hands on then call service man and remove the board.The location of the board varies from model to model.I feel door alarm is not important for you.You can ask him to cut the alarm sound.He will short the alarm wire.You can save 50$ on replacement of the board because its a small problem.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
