Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

3 Answers

Samsung RS2630SH I had a power surge that knocked my refrig out. I called for repair and they said it just needed a new "main board". I ordered the "main board" and put it on the refrig. but the refrig still does not work. the only thing that comes on are the lights inside the refridge. What other problems or parts could need replacing?

    I had the same problem as teelfish. 10 secs on power freeze and powerfridge (as described in solution #2) fixed it! Many thanks from Finland!

    I had the same problem this morning, as a result of an overnight power outage. The Samsung website said my refrigerator model "doesn't exist" and had no solution to the problem. Your suggestion to hold the Power Freeze/Power Cool button for 10 seconds solved the problem -- so simple, and so unknown. THANK YOU!!!

I found a solution and it was so simple. What you have to do is hold down the power cool and power fridge buttons down for approx 10 seconds and that will reset the fridge and it should start right up. I did exactly that and it worked, AMAZING. I read this at another web sight and was told that The Manufacturers dont tell you (the consumer) about this secret because the service techs along with the part manufacturers would never make money from us (Go Figure). I hope this works for you too and if not, I cant imagine what else you need.

Can you repair main samsung board BN94-07278B

Generally it's not easy to repar a main board. No way to tell fron a Q&A forum. The only way is to check each one idividually, evaluate the damage and the possibility of repair vs replacing the board or disposign of it as irreparable.
So, take your computers to a repair service and ask for the dignostics,
By the way, looks that your "surge supressor" was not working. Get yourself a good one

Freezer side is fine. Fridge side says it is at

Samsung Refrigerators came with many different features. I need to be sure yours is the model RS2630SH If so I believe that defrost comes from the main control board on yours. You need to unplug and examine the freezer compartment behind the panel covering the evaporator. Looking over the wiring diagram the control comes from main board for the defrost element/heater to melt the ice on evaporator. If the evaporator is covered in ice you will need to defrost with a hair dryer and we will need to check the defrost heater with an ohm meter to make sure its OK first. If its OK then we need to visually look over the main control board for signs of heat or burn marks on both sides with power disconnected to the refrigerator. No defrost can cause this problem and the dampers from freezer if not opening properly will cause this. Let me know, Sea Breeze

99% chance that the surge blew the power supply board. If it is a French door, bottom freezer model with ice and water through the left hand top door, it may have taken out the motherboard too. Samsung uses at least two boards, one main motherboard and a power supply board that powers the main.

Refrig side won't cool past 55 degrees

I am an authorized Samsung service center, and I have dealt with this ongoing design problem for years. The problem occurs when the unit comes out of the defrost cycle, not all of the frost has been removed by the defrost element and an ice bridge occurs at the top and bottom evaporator coil. There are sensors that send readings back to the main PCB during and after this cycle, They have to be replaced along with adding heat transfer clips for better frost meltage and air circulation.
Order the following parts through Samsung:: Fixer # DA61-03585A, Plate # DA61-03502A, Thermal Bi-metal # DA47-10160H, Sensor # DA32-00006W. Have these parts installed by a professional appliance repair company.
I hope this will fix your dilemma, Ward Appliance Repair.
