SOURCE: Fridge not cooling and Ice build up in freezer

It sounds like that when you noticed the fan was not working the refrigerator was also in defrost mode. This is not saying that the defrost position that you happened to catch it in was a normal function. If the defrost element was not on during defrost this will not allow the ice buildup to melt away and clear the evaporator for a fresh clear flow of cold air during normal running time. Also if the defrost thermostat is bad it will not allow the defrost element to come on during the defrost cycle. In short one of all four items could be the problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Ice maker not working in sub zero 561 model

you need to make sure that the unit has the water supply turned on. if you have a water dispensor on the front door and you are getting water then the water supply is on.

This ice maker is located in tight spot and has to be removed to cycle it manualy. so im going to give you a different way of doing a test.

first i want you to try to put your finger in the ice maker to see if you have any water or ice in it.

If it is empty then follow this step : try to get water in it without removing the ice maker. Do not fill it to the rim, just about halfway. This wont be easy, but if you do that you can check it the next day and see if it droped ice. if it did then your water valve is bad.

If it has ice in it then the ice maker in mostlikey bad.
or the switch for on and off is bad. (not common)

The freezer has to be under 14 F for most ice makers to operate.

Samsung SRS583HDP fridge not cooling. Side by side


Most likely the thermostat in the fridge, especially if it read 5 degrees until you reset it. Possibly the compressor in the fridge side as this fridge has twin cooling, or the circulating fan in the back of the fridge is frozen, which is a common problem as well.
Easiest things to try is to see if the fan is frozen and check if the fridge cooling is actually working. Turn off the fridge, remove the shelves, remove the 4 screws that hold in the bottom cover and the 2 screws that hold the water tank in. Cover should then come out a few inches. Reach behind and unplug the 2 plugs and pull out the cover. If the cover doesnt come out easily it may be glued to the back of the fridge by ice. Leave for a couple of hours and gently prize it off. Check for ice around the fan and that the fan spins freely. You could try sitting the cover inside the fridge, plug it in turn it back on for a few minutes (be careful) and then open the door and quickly look / listen to see if the fan is still spinning (it stops when you open the door). Leave the fridge off for a while until the ice disappears off the coils. Turn back on for half an hour. The coils should be icy again. Anything else call Samsung. If the deal in your country is the same as mine the fridge has a 2 year warranty but in the fine print the sealed compressor unit has five years on parts only. You could get the unit replaced for labour costs only. Check your warranty card.

Ice maker not working


OK, that should be no problem. Test your ice maker and fill with water if empty of ice. If full of ice and not moving to dump tell me. I need to help you locate the problem doing that and answering will tell me the problem. Also look around the door frame and inside for the model Profile that you have. and get back with me as soon as possible, Thanks Sea Breeze

Samsung double door refrigerator/freezer is not holding the tempature in the refrigerator. When you attempt to reset the temperature and press "power cool" nothing... temp remains around 56 The freezer...


I just had (have?) this same problem. I called out the repair man and in the end he suggested that I buy a new fridge because of all the problems reported with my model (RS2555SL) on the internet. Anyway, after a while I heard what sounded like a fan trying to spin on the fridge side. I unplugged the unit, removed the inside back panel on the fridge side. The entire coils and the fan had iced over. I removed all the ice, plugged the unit back in and it is now working. I will still replace this unit because I probably only corrected the symptom but the problem remains.

Samsung twin cooling fridge/freezer model Rs21dcsv Fridge temp control led display digit flashing and fridge not at right tempreture


My husband removed the covers inside the fridge which contain the lights and the cooling fan. The problem was the icing up of the cooling fan (which circulates the cold air) preventing it from rotating also the drain hole at the bottom of the fan was also iced up.
The fridge was switched off at the wall socket whilst working on it. After removing the panel containing the fan and unplugging the connection take the panel outside. A hair dryer was used to thaw out the ice. The drain hole was made slightly bigger to hopefully prevent this happening again.
When panel is screwed back in fridge make sure the black sealing tape is in position also take care not to damage cooling pipes which are attached to the evaporator unit. Defrosting a couple of times a year might prevent this happening again. It seems to be a design problem which im sure the makers will be aware of and modify future appliances. Q Will the makers repair this problem free of charge even if the warranty has expired !?

SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING


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)

Side by side refrigerator freezing up


inside the fridge there is a cold radiator which has filled with condensation or water from freezing it when say cleaned out the fridge this can be remedied by letting set for a few days outside in the sun so that water can evaporate properly or you can call a repair man and he can pull out frost radiator inside and defrost all the water out by dry wet vac and heater dryer

ice builds apon ice even a little bit can build up to a mountain same thing happended to my top end whirlpool i pulled the metal grate and defrosted this by pouring tap water over the ice which it went down the defrost tube outside water drain this helped greatly havent had trouble with ice since
