You can try unplugging the unit for a few minutes then plug back in. however what u may really want to check is the compressor relay and capacitor. Due u hear a clicking sound down there? feel the compressor vibrating? if the relay is out it will not start and u can buy what is called a 3 in 1 hardstart kit. not that expensive or hard to install, but first I would have the cold control thermostat checked as it may be out and thus no power. U can check it by placing a small screwdriver under it and into the tiny hole located on it. thermostat is usually found inside fridge on top at center, bout 3 inches long and wide. turn the screwdriver slowly till u hear a click then another click and that should turn off the defrost and start the fan and compressor? if it starts u know ur timer is bad

Hi steven, Maybe this could help? Has anyone moved the settings on the fridge? Your fridge is actuallty controled by the freezer with a fan and flap in the fridge compartment. These sometimes ice up and do not let the cold air into the fridge if this is the case then i would switch it of and defrost it ( Yes it is supposed to frost free ) But they do fail. Check to see if it has two compressors on it? see if the fridge one is work and hot as it could be independant from the freezer depending on the spec!
Hope this helps?

Hi. Just had a Samsung RS7567BHCBC American style fridge freezer installed today. Does it take a few days ti build up a stock of ice cubes? Had a few out tonight but then stopped. Thanks


you should have a manual that tells you this information, yes, it takes 24 hours for your fridge to kick in and have ice built up and for the freezer and fridge to be up to the settings you have it at

I have a samsung fridge freezer model no RSH1DTMH and the fridge will not go lower than 13degrees and the freezer and water dispenser seem ok. The fridge freezer is only 3 years old. Any ideas/


We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.

Samsung american style fridge/freezer needs repairing


Spray a good quantity of WD-40 on the spindle of the fan motor where it enters the motor itself. This should get the fan working smoothly with no noise. This will probably solve the other problems, as the fan prevents various components from overheating and shutting down.
