Question about Samsung Refrigerators
Hi, I have a Samsung Refrigerator M/N RF267AAR. It takes R134A.
Compressor # MK172D-R2U.
I need to know what type and weight oil does it take.
I screwed up and poured it all over the shop floor.
This link will take you to a parts suppliers compressor page where you can look up the part number and order information. Their toll-free number is at the top of the page.
If this doesn't help, post me back and I will do some more research to help resolve your issue.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

Hey there you need to check the motor/compressor PTC start relay which is located on the side of the compressor under the plastic terminal cover, it's mounted on start and run winding pins the third pin is the incoming phase which has a overload connected to it .if this relay stays shorted or doesn't conduct to power the start winding the motor/compressor wont start. also if there's a motor start capacitor test that. tell me how you get on as i have more solutions if that doesn't help.
Please rate my advice too

I would say your compressor is running constantly and it is the heat from this that is making the fridge sides and front hot.
If it is that would indicate you have problems with either
1/ Your refrigarant is undercharged
or 2/ Your thermostat is defective
A stand alone refridgerator / freezer would tell you if it is keeping the correct temperature. If it is than a freon undercharge would be indicated.

The stop leak probably stopped up your cap tube system and the filter drier.You can try by replacing the filter drier, vacuum the system to 500 microns and recharge.The automotive 134a is the same as any other 134a.

There could be a list of things that cause this. For some reason you are focused on the compressor. So lets begin by unplugging the refrigerator pull away from the wall and remove the paper cover over the compressor area. Touch the compressor to feel is it's too hot to touch or hold your hand on Top. That tells me if its trying to start or if the start relay, capacitor and overload are possibly. Would like to know if the condenser fan is running also while your there. Please also confirm that your model is the GD25HAXLQ. Let me know your results. If I don't hear from you soon I will send my email address because I have not been getting response when someone answers my questions, Thanks, Sea breeze
