Door ajar alarm ringing and refridgerator not cooling enough

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.

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.

My samsung frige, french doors keeo ringing


Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

Refridgerator and Freezer Not Cooling (2 year old fridge)


Some of these had problems with the door light switches between the doors. They also control the fans. The top and bottom both have fans in back. Try opening top door and holding door light switch in. Wait for a couple minutes to see if fan comes on. Try with freezer too. If not coming on may need switch.

Kenmore Elite Trio Frige...Beeping three times in a row suddenly


this unit has a history of the light circuit failing and it will cause the lights to either stay on or off. if they stay on, it will melt the housing around the upper bulb area. it has a recall and should be covered by sears for no charge. it is the control board failure and has a sticking relay for the light circuit, needs board replaced.
the 3 beeps are the unit thinking it has a door open. turn off the alarm on the door control board and call sears 800 # for repair.

Door alarm keeps sounding even though doors aren't ajar


The problem is the doorswitch of the freezer door. The door 'bump' which has to push in the swich doesn't push it in far enough. You can try and hold the switch an dpush it in with your finger and see if the sound continues. You can try to adjust the door, but easier is to glue or tape something to the door 'bump' so it pushes the switch further in. Hope this was the issue.
