It is likely that you have ice build-up on the tubes behind the back of the freezer. This will prevent effective heat exchange and block air flow AND can cause the water line to freeze. Same exact thing happened to me. Look at the back wall of the freezer. If there is any ice/frost on the wall and ESCPECIALLY if you can see ice through the ventilation holes this is probably it. You will need to defrost the freezer. Uplug the unit and take everything out of the freezer. Put a towel in the bottom and leave the door open. If you want, you can try blasting it with a hairdryer, but even with several spells of hair dryer it took my freezer 18 hours for all the ice to melt. This seems to be a common problem with Samsung side-by-sides. Good luck.

Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator not cooling down frig or freezer


Is the compressor running? If so, feel the discharge line is the line cold? If not the unit is probably out of Freon, which means it will have a leak somewhere in the system.

Refrigerator freezes


Sounds like might be the Temperature Control Thermostat or some sensor in the circuitry telling the compressor and cooling parts to keep running because it thinks it isn't cold enough. There is probably a circulation fan to blow the cold air through the damper and it may not shut off either, conveying too much cold thermal conduction through ducting and all frig parts, regardless of damper being closed or open. With the temperature set on low, do the compressor and fans ever shut off once cold temperatures are attained? Freezer should be 0 or lower, frig 35-40.

Hi, yes, your thermostat could be faulty, yes there should vent( damper), check controls on freezer side, controls amount of cold air going to ref. side, yes could be stuck by ice, yes both adjustment are necessary, check manual, some thermostat are very sensitive, you should adjust gradually, wait for about 40 minutes, before adjusting again. yes there's vent flap (damper) yes that could be your problem, normally they get stuck with ice, remove covers to locate it., you 're smart, you will see, damper, good luck.

Maytag freezer don't freeze food or make ice


There could be several things causing the frig to be cold but not cold enough. First check thermostat control and air control. Both should be set in the middle setting for normal operation.Next check to see if evaporater fan is running in freezer. It should be running whenever compressor runs and circulates cold air inside frig as well as freezer. Next check if condensor fan motor is running. It blows air over condensor coils to remove heat. Last ,check condensor itself for dirty coils. If they are matted up with hair dust,etc. it will cause poor cooling. you can give thorough cleaning with vacuum cleaner. Hope this helps

I have a Kenmore Cold Spot fridge, freezer on top. Fridge is warm, and freezer keeps freezing up on sides and bottom. I cleaned it all out, defrosted it, and it still freezes up and fridge still won't get...


Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.

Freezer not cold enough to freeze items solid


Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.
