    Samsung side by side fridge freezer

    Having the same symptoms as the above post the temperature settings on the door generally just show the setting you require the units to work at, (-18'c Freezer & 3'c fridge). They do not actually show the temperature inside the units or sound the alarm when the temperature is outside the working range of the units, (shame). By turning the power Off for a few seconds the units go into a new learn routine and show the actual inside Temp of the units until they reach their working temp.

    To combat this until I can get the freezer emptied and fixed I've installed a basic timer to interrupt the power supply every couple of hours for about 10-15 minutes to enable the units to restart automatically this seems to do the trick although not ideal. Any other ideas



    Cheers Lockmaster

    i also have a samsung that is allowing goods on the top shelf to defrost. I did strip out the inside cowls and discovered that the fan was not running, i suspect this is a 12 volt fan as it will run if a attach a 12 volt feed to it. Does anyone know what actually activates this fan and if it is a 12 volt system?

Heya,
I did samsung warranty for awhile and these fridges have a faulty defrost termination clixon. What happens is when you turn off the fridge it turns it off defrost. If you do get a tech out there are two parts you need to fix it. One is a yellow sensor cable and the other is a defrost termination wire that is black and red. These two parts i use to sell for $70aus when the fridges where out of warrenty.

I actually have one of these fridges now and work so if you have any other problems please let me know

Regards Mat

How old is the fridge?

You did all the right things!!

But this sounds like a bad thermostat.
or a bad control switch.

Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here!
Let me know how you do! Or if you need something else.
We do have very good sponsors here on this site that do repair work, should you take this course!

Overheating, seals on Roper side by side are hot to the touch


Hi, When that strip gets hot, it is a sign the temperatures are not cold enough. Put a thermomitor in the freezer. You should get a reading of 0 to 5 above. If not, let me know and we can try and get you through this.

Thanks

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.
