Question about Samsung Refrigerators

1 Answer

My samsung frige freezer RL41WGTB first broke down at about 7 months old - They changes sensors etc but no kidding it took 6 visits to get it fixed - the final engineer said it needed gas so he did that explaining it should be weighed but see how it goes ! so it went again for 10 weeks - this time the fidge has packed up - freezer still going - engineer did not turn up ! then rang and made another appt - came and said too much gas - but said he was not a gas man ! nevertheless released some gas ! and said see how it goes ! 2 days later he rang - still at 18 deg - NOT working - he said he would get compressor man out - um compressor running fine ! freezer is working well ! so having now had 8 days off for this fridge - which far out weighs the 500 quid i paid for it - surely they should just replace it - it still has a years warranty on it !

I suspect fault is nothing to do with gas and as this unit uses r600a, gas needs to be dosed exactly - no good just squirting a bit in!
if freezer is ok, i guess fault is with the fan jammed.

The freezer works great but the frige is not very cold. Its 2 months old

If brand new should have 1 year parts and labor warranty. Call them. Get it done free.

But no warranty. Don't worry. This is nothing major.

Major cooling happens in Freezer. If it is reaching cold enough then your compressor, gas etc is good. Your problem is little cold air needed to fridge is not getting there.

I have a Kenmore refrigerator 795690002900 bottom freezer. The freezer is working but the fridge doesn`t work. The temp adjustment for freezer lits up the 6 and 7 will not adjust, the fridge part does not...

Mine bottom freezer 10 or so year old unit did the same thing, problem was the thermal switch ("clicks on") on de-ice circuit was broken. Quick "fix" is to defrost the unit by shutting it off, putting frozen food in a cooler. Once the ice melts the path for blowing cold air UP to the frige will be opened. Will work fine for days until the freezer ices up again.

Most likely the "clicks on" or thermal swithch that is bad and will not let the defroster heater work. Easy fix. Everything is BEHIND the pull out frozen food tray. Remove a couple of screws and you will see all the ice. If I remember correctly my clicks on was just to the right of center and took only 5 minutes to replace after defrosting the unit.

Hope this helped,

This refrigerator starts "Banging" sounds

This sound like one of the fans is hitting something.
One fan is in the freezer behind the back cover probably near the top.
Another fan is around back behind the cardboard cover. It blows air out the back and you can probably see it without removing the cover. Since this one is near the compressor it's most likely the one.

My office has the Prostar 816 phone and the manual is not detailed at all.. I needed to know how to change the time (due to time change) Our manual says #55 etc etc... Help me please!

To change the time on a prostar 816 you first need to be at a display set (doesn't matter what the extension number is).
with the handset down, enter #20 the screen should say MMC DISABLED
1) enter in 1 2 3 4 1 # (that enables programming2.gif)
2) enter in #55 the screen should say YYMMDDWHHMM
3) enter in the year, month, day, day of the week, hours and minutes(the day of the week values are 1= mon. 2= tues. etc.)
press # when finished.

We've had tonza problems with ours too, kept building up frost, temperature sensor acted up as well. Piece of trash if you ask me. Never fixed it (did not want to throw money at it). Amazingly we just got a new one... another Samsung.... (with 4 yr extended warranty though this time!)

Frige freezing solid

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

This one is weird. A paper jam took place and we

When you cleared the JAM you broke, moved, displaced or bent the sensor that knows if the door is open, look for a sensor with two wires where the door makes contact - it could be almost any style but is usually something that slips into something and makes a contact closure or microswitch to close or open.
