Question about Samsung Refrigerators

Samsung Side by Side Refrigerator

My regriferator has stopped working. The lights inside and on the panel still work but it does not run. Does that mean there is a problem with my compressor? If so, how do I repair it?

Thank you,

If the fan in the freezer is running and there is no frost buildup yes a would think it's the comp.can you pull it out to see if it is running at all,if not the first thing you can do is get a 3in1 starter from your local appliance parts store($10) if it still does not start it narrows it down to the thermostat or drodt timer,let me know how you do-mike

Flashing green light on control panel

Samsung refrigerator RS2530bwp
Cause: Power outage
- One LED light flashing on console (in the Power Freeze section)
- Not running (not cooling, but inside lights work, ice maker not working, ice crusher doesn't work, water wont dispense)
Press and hold for at least 10 seconds
Ice type button + Filter Reset button
Console should light up.
This is not documented *anywhere* on the web (until now). Best of luck

replace the compressor fan when it stops working the lines heat up also unplug your unit if it keeps running without the fan you will do damage to your compressor i suppose if you had no wear else to keep your food you would use a large portable fan to blow on the compressor bulb this is not a permanent fix and may only work till you get the new fan if you have any further questions message me back and please rememeber to rank how this opinion has helped thanks Rick

I defrosted the freezer and now there is a light blinking on the front panel. what do I need to do to get it running again

probably change filter and cancel light . instructions for your model . holding 2 buttons on control for 3 sec should stop light. finding the correct ons is the trick .. there may be info on or in the ref . a tec sheet is sometimes behind the grill at the toe . whirl / maytag / ect . some models of maytag are samsungs . if some of these don't work get back with me . we'll look a little harder

Samsung Refrigerator

this is a design fault on the appliance normally caused by the failure of the element and built up of ice around the circulating fan (the humming is the fan motor trying to turn ) youll find that if you defrost it it will work for a little while and then ice up again the need to replace a panel inside the fridge modified and a couple of sensors and poss the heater element

This unit has a history of problems on the refrigerator side. the basic reset is press and hold down the 2 middle buttons on the freezer at the same time. As a general rule the number one problem is in the mother board. usually you can replace it and everything will work.
