SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

Upright Avanti Model # BCAD338 refrigerator and it will only cool to room temperature. I set the temperature for 34 degrees, only gets down to 60 degrees at best. It worked fine for the past year.

Looking at the manual for this the unit is not made any longer but parts are still available. The things to check are the capillary tube that runs the thermostat, the compressor to see if it is starting or getting too hot. There may be a start capacitor on the unit but the parts list is a translation from another language and it is hard to tell.

Intermittent colling in Samsung Window AC

so your reported figures show that the unit is operating as planned
the closer to ambient temp the shorter it runs for
the further away from ambient temp the longer it runs for
when the desired temp is reached , the compressor will stop but the fan will continue to run to circulate air past the thermostat so that it will switch back on when the room temp reaches too high temp
and that is why it is recommended to set the temp at 25 C as that is the most economical temp to run it at

My fridge gets really hot on top and between the fridge and freezer where the door meets

next time send the model number and brand name.usually when this happens is the condenser fan motor isn't working.pull the fridge out,remove the bottom back panel and check the fan to see if it's working,if it is check the condenser coil to see if it's filled with lint and dust,it could just need to be cleaned out but if it's that hot most likely the fan isn't running,if you get this tonight check it now,if the fan isn't running you could blow the compressor,the condenser fan blows and keeps the compressor cool enough so it doesn't overheat by moving the hot air and the heat also esscapes through the condenser coil so if that's clogged with dust the machine will run hotter than normal,if the fan isn't running you can stick any window fan back there and blow it onto the compressor to keep it cool until you fix the condenser fan motor,this way you won't loose any food and if the compressor goes it's new fridge time,to much to repair.hope this helps and good luck with your more thing,i've found the fans not running and by pushing the blade it runs again,if this happens the fan could run and never have a problem or it could stop an hour later but i would change it out no matter what.if it's a G.E. fridge and the motor isn't running,most likely it will be the computer board,i've found 10 machines doing this and the temp. settings turning on and off or the evap fan motor in the freezer runs slow and then fast and the condenser fan isn't running or running slowly,this is why you have to send the brand name and model number.

Freezer appears to be working, but not the refrigerator section - at most that will only get to 50 degrees. Manually switching to propane makes no difference.

Sounds like your cooling fan is out. If the freezer is fine and the fridge isn't, then the cooling fan isn't blowing the cold air the the fridge. Or you could have ice obstructing the airflow.

My leptop acer aspire 4732z , my leptop is more heaving and very slow and auto shutdown ,and hardisk more heating plz solve my problem


Most likely the machine is overheating, it could be the fan is not running normally but just to make sure if its hardware or software I suggest try to diagnose your machine and you can try this steps.

1. Follow this link to download Speedfan:
2. Open and install Speedfan.
3. Launch Speedfan (this usually takes at least a minute to start).
4. Observe the temperature readings you receive. If your temperature readings are above 60 degrees Celsius or higher, especially when the computer is idling, then your laptop is running too hot. If your laptop temperature is below 60 Celsius, then leave Speedfan running and check on it periodically to see if the laptop is heating up (whether idling or in use).

If you are sure your laptop is overheating, then there are a few stopgap measures that you can employ:
1. Place the laptop on top of a cookie sheet.
2. Place laptop on edge of table so that the air vents on the bottom of the laptop are not being blocked.
3. Use a standing fan and turn it directly on the laptop.

Ways to fix laptop from overheating:
Follow this link for pictures and text explaining the next several steps.
(The laptop model used in these pictures isn't exactly the same as yours but it should be close. Don't worry, this process isn't that difficult, and you won't have to go any farther than removing the cooling fan.)

1. Turn off laptop, unplug laptop, and remove the battery.
2. Unscrew all panels on the back of the laptop.
3. Remove RAM, Hard drive, and cooling fan by following steps 1-8 on the linked website. Skip removing the DVD drive (step 6).
4. Using compressed air, a vacuum cleaner, or an air pump, blow air into the now open compartments in the back of the laptop.
5. Blow out the dust and dirt in the cooling fan.
6. Reassemble and turn on laptop.
7. Run Speedfan and monitor your temperature.

If your laptop is still running hot, then either employ the stopgap measures or take the laptop to a laptop technician. The laptop technician can take your laptop completely apart, reapply thermal grease to the CPU heatsink, and blow out more dust and dirt.

Good luck, thanks for using FixYa.

My fan is not running

Which fan is not running? Case fan, CPU fan, PSU fan? CPU fans will cause the computer to shutdown automatically usually with in a few seconds of boot. If it isn't running at all, simply replace it. They are measured in milometers 40, 60 , 80, 90, 120 and some 200mm form factors. Just replace with the same size fan size and you should be up and running again.

Temperature - Is fan supposed to constantly run or is it controlled by thermostat

You said ,Top half of Danby DKC645BLS refrigerator 10 degrees warmer than bottom half. Bottom half cooling to approx. 34 degrees.

Is it running all the time without cycling off and on as it should be doing?
Sorry to have to tell you this news.
But this would mean a bad thermostat or insufficient freon in the cooling system.

The same issue with the fact that one compartment is warm and the other is cool!

Let me know that service tells you!

Thank You
