probly the evaporator coil in fridge all frozen up you need to pull all the back out inside the fridge section and defrost with air drier

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

SOURCE: noise from back of Samsung freezer near ice maker model RS2530BBP

I figured out what was going on with mine and fixed it (without needing to buy replacement parts). In the freezer section, about a third of the way down the back of the freezer was a bulged-out plastic covering, held in place by four screws. The two screws on top are covered by oval plastic that pops off easily with the help of a knife. If you take the screws out, the hard part is that the bulge/cover is still going to be frozen in place. I used an old-fashioned bottle opener/churchkey to gently pry the compartment open. When I got inside, it was easy to see what was happening--the plastic fan was hitting ice that had built up behind this cover. I chipped away all the ice, and presto--no more noise!

SOURCE: Samsung RS2533SW freezer not cooling problem

I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.

Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.

MY SAMSUNG FRIDGE FREEZER WORKS FINE FOR A WHILE THEN IT WILL TURN ITSELF OFF FOR MAYBE AN HOUR OR TWO AND THEN TURN BACK ON AGAIN THIS HAPPENS ON A REGULAR BASIS ????


So, is this a problem? Does it allow frozen items to thaw? Frost free freezers work by going into a heat cycle about once every 20 hours or so for about 20 minutes; your model may be defrosting too long. During defrost, the compressor is off, and a heater is on inside the coils of the freezer. This melts ice built up on the heat exchanger. It might be normal for your model to be off for up to an hour if there is heavy frost build-up. Are the doors shutting and sealing correctly? A bad seal on the freezer door will allow frost to build up quickly.
Some of the Samsung models connect to your home network and allow the power company to put them into power save mode when necessary--this might be what your's is doing, but there is a panel indication when this happens.

Our Samsung ice maker stopped working


Sound like the problem may be a gear broken or damaged in the module which appears to be replaceable in your model. If you can dissasemble it enough to inspect the gears you may can replace the part instead of the entire ice maker. It looks like the motor may be in part 18 on this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=RS2630WW&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1482&modelName=SAMSUNG-REFRIGERATION&diagramPageId=00009&componentDescription=ICE%20MAKER&documentId=M0612092&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Victory Freezer not working after a move


how long did yu wait before pluggin it in? When laid on its side the freon, and compressor oil migrate. You may have ruined the compressor by turning it on when there was not enough oil in it.

It is best not to set freezers on the side, but if you must, make sure you leave it for 24 hours to allow the oil to settle again before plugging in.
