Hello Sir Randy!!!

Welcome to fixya..

I remember that kind of symptoms happens before on my side by side ref..Try to check the coil on refrigerator side if it is iced up ..

Take this steps on how to:

  1. Open the refrigerator side.
  2. Remove the 11 screws on it..
  3. Get the hair drier..
  4. use the hair drier to slowly melt the iced behind the cover.
Note: If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the Styrofoam ducting that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble..

Hope it helps..Thank you for using fixya and choosing my service.

Will not get colder than 50

The first thing to check would be the condenser coils. Not sure where it is on your model, but when they collect dust, they do not allow the fridge to cool down correctly. It will be on the back of the fridge. Either running down from top to bottom or will be at the back behind the lower panel. If the condenser fan is running, then the coil is probably dirty. Unless someone has accidentally moved the temperature setting inside the fridge.

remove bottom vent cover at front of fridge. just clips in place. look under neath and you should see a coil. its probaly caked with dust. use a shop vac or vaccum cleaner with small enough hose to insert under the fridge directly to the coil. remove all dust. dont use anythng sharp or pointed to clean coil, as coil can be punctured.

Subzero 650 fridge temp says 34 but is really about 50

Is your thermometer in a glass of water? That's the way to get an accurate temperature reading. You may want to call an authorized servicer.

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

Refridgerator is not cooling properly

Ours does this too; it says its 34 degrees but really its 53-58 degrees. . . The compressor coolant part of the machine freezes and then it can't circulate the cold air to cool the fridge. You have to unplug it for at least 24 hours to let it thaw, or you can take out the lower drawers and shelves, unscrew and remove the lower back pannel (from the inside of the fridge). We use a blow dryer to thaw out the ice block that formed on the unit. It goes faster if it is unplugged, this fridge is horrible we lost hundreds of dollars in groceries before we figured out the problem.
