Hi there, I have a Samsung RS21DCNS F/F. and have just moved house and connected it all back up. The LED display lights up, but the fridge and freezers won't cool and there's no motor or fan...


Was the fridge laying down? How long? Rule is if a fridge is laying down for an hour leave standing for a minium of an hour WITHOUT PLUGGED IN. ^hours laying equals 6 hrs standing. I tell everyone give it 24hrs of standing to eliminate problems. If you plugged it in without enough time for the oil in the compressor to return back to the compressor you may have fried your compressor. Now if you did leave it long enough and the oil in the compressor got back in compressor before plugging in. It could be in your defrost timer or your start relay. Does the fan in freezer come on? Push the switch to make the fridge think door is shut. If fan does not run it sounds like the defrost timer. If fan does run the check the start relay on compressor. Does the compressor turn on? Do you hear a clicking sound coming from copressor? If you hear a clicking noise than its your start relay trying to come on. Replace start relay and overload. The model number you gave me is not valid so get the full model number and check thru Searspartsdirect.com

I am moving and need to lay the fridge on its side, but have been told you cannot do so, is this correct?


You do not want to lay that refrigerator on its side because the refrigerant will leave the compressor and fill the system with liquid refrigerant where it should only be existing in a gaseous state, and if the refrigerator is tilted far enough over or lay-ed onto its side then the refrigerator will have to stand up-right and un-plugged for at least 24 hours before the liquid refrigerant will settle back down where it belongs, and then the refrigerator should actually function again if there was no other damage caused when moving the unit.

I am moving home and would like to know if I can place my whirlpool fridge freezer on its side in the removal van, willthis cause any damage?


No, it won't be harmfull if you be patient when you get it there. When you get the refrigerator set back up make sure that you wait at least a few hours before plugging it back in. This gives the oil in the system time to run back into the compressor before you run it. Have a good time moving I sure am gald that it is not me. It is a lot of work!!

Moved fridg to new house pluged it in dosen,t get coled at all!!!


If you had to lay the fridge down to move it? Then you have to let it stand upright for at least 24 hours before you can plug it in and use it or it won't cool, as oil will get into the coolant lines and foul the works.
If you didn't have to lay it down, then check for a switch and or harness under the front grill that may have got bumped out of adjustment of knocked the plug off.
I hope this helps you, and good luck.

I just moved my dads fridge to my house and after about 7 hours I smelled a burnt plastic smell. I smell it on and off.The fridge is still cooling.When i moved it I layed it down.


When a fridge is layed down the oil in the compressor will flow into the refridgerant lines and will have to be stood upright until the oil can return the the comrpessor. It may be too late for yours but I would try cutting it off for a day before trying it again. This may not be the cause of the smell so keep a nose on that and try to locate exactly where it's coming from.

Kenmore top freezer. Bought it from a lady. Only


Was the fridge layed down when moving ? If so , did you let it stand for 24 hrs before plugging it in ? If you layed it down and didn't wait to plug it in , it's no good .
If you did not lay it down , remove the back panel and see if the compressor is running . If the compressor is hot but not running ,possible overload/relay bad . This is the piece that plugs onto the compressor . Also check that the fan that cools the compressor is working .If you remove the inside freezer panel , check to see that the freezer fan is working . Check to see if the coils are getting a light coat of frost on them .
