Question about Samsung RB2155 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Refrigerator Door Gasket Has Split

Unlike many of the people's blogs on Samsung appliances, I have liked my fridge since it was delivered new in July,2004. Recently I noticed that the door gasket has a split in it. I called the authorized local service company recommended by Samsung, and what they told me has me floored. They say that the gasket on this large upper refrigerator door is NOT REPLACE-
ABLE! In order to get a new gasket, one must buy a new door! Does this seem as unreasonable to anyone else, as it does to me? The whole door and installation will be over 500.00 on a perfectly good fridge that only cost 1000.00 new. Please help me. Tim

I FIND IT VERY STRANGE THAT THE ENTIRE DOOR NEEDS TO BE REPLACED IN THE EVENT THAT THE RUBBER IS FAULTY.I NO FOR A FACT THAT SOME SAMSUNG FRIDGE RUBBERS ARE QUITE HARD TO REPLACE AND THE QUICKEST SOLUTION FOR THE TECH IS TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE DOOR.TO ESTABLISH IF THE RUBBER IS REPLACABLE I SUGGEST YOU LIFT THE GASKET IN ONE CORNER AND LOOK FOR A GROOVE OR SCREWS.SOME RUBBERS ARE BASED ON A PUSH IN PULL OUT BASIS.IF YOU FIND IT HARD TO ESTABLISH WHICH IT IS I THINK ITS BEST YOU ASK SAMSUNG TO SEND YOU A MORE ADVANCED TECH TO ASSIST YOU IN THAT REGARD.ALSO YOU CAN VISIT SAMSUNG WEBSITE AND FIND A TECH NEAR YOU.

GOODLUCK.

How can I get colder temperature in new Samsung french door refrigerator.


There are numerous causes. If it is as new as you say, it should still be under warranty. Contact the company you bought it from and have them schedule an appliance service company to come out and take a look at it. Make sure you have a copy of your receipt to provide to the service technician when he/she comes out.

How do I get my new Samsung RF220 to be cooler in the refrigerator section? The temperature does not go below 52degrees F. It is set at the coldest setting.


Check for deformed rubber boot that runs entirely around edge of fridge door allowing cold air in fridge to leak out. 2nd possibility: Louvers in wall between freezer and fridge may be stuck in mostly closed position. Force them GENTLY to open. That will allow the cold air to pass normally from the freezer to the fridge to give you proper fridge temps. If these two easy cures don't work, here's hoping that Samsung owes you in-warranty service and parts on your "new" unit.

Model# RT18DKXEW05 parts


Repair clinic has booth door gaskets
the refrigerator gasket is $91.60
The freezer door gasket is $72.95

If the unit is working good it might be worth it to replace the gaskets if unit is in good shape and you only need one of the 2 gaskets I would replace it. if needs both you need to see what a replacement unit costs and make a decision

- fridge not working following defrost


Usually once defrosted, the unit just runs again, with nothing else needing to be done. If there is a fan inside the refrigerator, make sure it operates when the door is closed (manually depress the door switch.).

Check the door gasket as well to make sure it is in good condition.

Fridge not cold


I think that I have a solution. Refridgerator side not cooling.
I read in the blogs that holding down the top two bottons(power cool & fridge) at the same time resets the refridgerator control panel.

I may have caused the problem by leaving the door open. If my above solution does not work, then I will defrost the frefrigerator just in case the coils are froze up. It works with my air conditioner.

Door reversal


Normally the Appliance Company from which you bought your refrigerator from would do the changing if you specified.

Call them and they may take are of the change as a customer courtesy.
