    I have a very similar problem. My fridge is a Samsung SRL551DP. The alarm repeats itself every few minutes and the temperature of the fridge is 9 degrees. The light was originally not working, but now it appears that it will not turn off. As the light is linked to the alarm switch, I thought that perhaps the problem resided there. I have tried unplugging the fridge, but the problem was not resolved. Whatever help you can offer is appreciated!

SOURCE: temperature in refrigerator is now at 60

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.

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:-)

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...

This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..
