Samsung side-by-side RS2544sl not cooling, freezer works great

Bought this used, ended up calling a repair company for this issue -- $210 more to "fix" and still not cooling. I have NO confidence in them except in their ability to continue taking my money! Is it worth fixing??
I have tried resetting by pushing power cool buttons simultaneously, unplugging for 5-10 minutes. Freezer side works like a charm. Fridge side cycles through different temperatures (according to computer panel) but never actually cools. Same issue BEFORE the tech came.
Technician replaced a defrost thermostat. He did have to de-ice the refrigerator side first. The fan is no longer blowing so I'm assuming it's iced up again. Should I replace the main computer board, I've been told that they are problematic. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

You have to pull out the sensor from the board and test with tester, both sensor should read the resistance of 10,000 to 20,000 ohms. The reading that you show is very low it means that the thermistor is out of range and need replacement.

I have a Samsung side by side refridgerator and experience the same problem every couple of months. I am usually able to fix it by making sure nothing is blocking the vents which circulate the air at the back of the freezer. Sometimes we cram soo much food in there that the circulation stops and things keep from getting cold. What I believe is actually happening is that the temperature sensor is in a bad place (right next to the output vent), so that if the circulation shuts down, the temp sensor still thinks its cold when the rest of the fridge is not cold. In response, the freezer turns off because it thinks it is cold when it is not. In my situation, the freezer temp sensor said it was still below freezing even though everything in the fridge was melted.

the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)

Check to make sure evap fan is working, you should be able to open freezer, push in on door light switch, wait a second or three and see if fan comes on, you will be able to hear it if it does.

Check also that you don't have frost/ice build-up on back wall of freezer. If you do u have a defrost or cycle problem.

Frigde wont get cold but freezer does.


I am an authorized Samsung service center, and I have dealt with this ongoing design problem for years. The problem occurs when the unit comes out of the defrost cycle, not all of the frost has been removed by the defrost element and an ice bridge occurs at the top and bottom evaporator coil. There are sensors that send readings back to the main PCB during and after this cycle, They have to be replaced along with adding heat transfer clips for better frost meltage and air circulation.
Order the following parts through Samsung:: Fixer # DA61-03585A, Plate # DA61-03502A, Thermal Bi-metal # DA47-10160H, Sensor # DA32-00006W. Have these parts installed by a professional appliance repair company.
I hope this will fix your dilemma, Ward Appliance Repair.

I fixed my problem with the fan not working in the refrigerator section. It ended up being the fan motor. The way I nailed it down was to temporarily switch the wires to the fan motors in the connector on the circuit card. This electrically powered the freezer fan from the refrigerator side and visa versa. The fan still worked in the freezer side (running of the refrigerator circuit) and was still inop on the refrigerator side proving that there was nothing wrong with the circuit card or possible other factors driving that circuit (other than the fan motor). I ordered and installed a new fan motor (about $50) and now everything works fine. It seems that the original problem caused the circuit card to shut down voltage to the bad fan motor that's why when you checked the voltage from the circuit card, it was nill causing you to falsely believe that it was not the fan motor. Yes, I did a resistance check on the fan motor and it was very close to being the same as the freezer motor (same part number).

Freezer stopped working


Solomonau, it's hard to tell without being there exactly what is going on. I do know however,that in April of 2005 Samsung came out with a bullitin regarding the cap tube. It states that it has been inserted into the dryer incorrectly and can cause no cool situations. This is part of the sealed system which should be covered for 5 years. What you are describing sounds like a partial restriction, which could be taking place in that dryer and cap tube. If you were to post your model number, I would be able to tell if yours was included in this bullitin. You can then contact Samsung and inquire about this service bullitin, Catriver..post back.
