Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
Christmas Eve, 20 people over and the refridgerator decides to not work. Door ajar alarm continuously beeping, inside light off and refridgerator not cooling enough. Day after Christmas, empty and turn off refridgerator into cooler. Unplug to reset thermostat for 10 minutes, replug...still does not work. Unplug and defrost freezer for one hour reset and wait. Freezer to desired temp of -4...but fridge is 67 degrees. Beer is still cold amazingly but food warm. Is this Samsung refridgerator worth fixing? Hardly no-one fixes Samsung for some reason. Begged one repair specialist to travel. Should I toss or save??? Is 5 years old.
It sounds like either a defrost problem or damper door problem it is very well worth fixxing

This could be a defective thermistor telling the fridge that the evaporator fan is frozen up with ice. But if you are lucky like me it is a defective door switch, telling the fridge that the door is open when in fact it is closed. The fan sending cold air from the freezer section to the refrigerator section turns off when the door is open, so a defective door switch can keep that fan turned off all the time. Push the buttons on the door switch to see if the lights go off in the freezer and refrigerator. If not, use a knife or screwdriver to pry out the switch and unplug it. Then you should hear the fan turn on, and the refrigerator start cooling. Good luck! genetuck PS....my light was not coming on at all, and I had to unplug the refrigerator for five minutes, then plug it in to get the light to work. I just discovered the switch was defective, and don't know yet if there will be any future problems with the light.
