Samsung sr-l3426bs fridge not getting cold

Samsung fridge freezer model: SR-L3426BS/XEU fridge compartment not getting cold. Hi, i have a samsung fridge frezer model no: SR-L3426BS/XEU The freezer seems to be working fine but the fridge compartment is'nt getting cold. I can hear the motor running & the light is still working but nothing else. I have been told to open the door & hold the light switch in to see i the air flow kicks in, which was unsucessful. I have also been told to look for a small hole that the cold air passes through which can sometimes get bunged up, but i cannot find this? I have now turned off the fridge freezer to defrost it. do you have any other suggestions or better still a solution to my problem. Thanks, Frank.

You would need your fridge defrost sensor replace, check for ice build up within the vents of fridge section,
best to a tec to come and replace it for you,you would need the sensor to be reset on your fridge computer board
cheers

SOURCE: WESTINGHOUSE FREEZER MATE

Check the back bottom freezer wall to see if there is frost on it. If so you have a defrost problem. If the coil dosent defrost it becomes an ice ball and no air can flow. Could be a defrost timer which switches the refrig into the defrost cycle. There is also a heater and thermostat in the system. Shut it off overnight with the doors open to defrost it and get it temporarily running . If it is not frosted up make sure your coil underneath is clean and your cooling motor is running in the back, bottom.

SOURCE: freezer is freezing but fridge is not cold as it was

Sounds like defrost timer is not putting the refrigerator in defrost every 8 hours. You freezer should be below -5 degrees. Also the condenser beneath the refrigerator possibly needs cleaning. First slowly turn the defrost timer clockwise until freezer goes in defrost. You should hear the sound of crackling noise in freezer after about one minute into defrost. If timer does not come out of defrost or does not turn itself then replace it. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze

You almost certainly have a problem with either defrosting or evaporator fan motor. Please verify your model number so I can pull up your unit to provide troubleshooting information. Thank you

The fridge is not working.the freezer is working.in the freezer the cold air is not coming in the fridge.


fridge basics

the fridge and freezer are seperate compartments they dont share air there is a chemical filled filiment on your fridge u can see it at the back looks like a big grill that chemical is pumped around both fridge and frezer that chemical carrys heat energy it removes the heat from the fridge and frezer to the radiator at the back this radiator gets verry hot whyle your fridge / frezer becomes cold it shuld be 1 compleate system with better fluid flow in the frezer to make it cool faster

ok so the frezer is working but fridge is not it could be a few things 1 fluid not geting round the fridge lack of fluid or 2 a blockage

im no expert but knowing the basic science of fridges is a help i hope this has helped but like i say im not farmiliar with any fridge and models deviate but the science stays the same hopefully this steers u in the right direction

Samsung Model SR 21 NME. The freezer is on the top, this freezers fine, but the fridge isnt even cool. We have taken the back off the freeze to do a complete defrost. The fan works fine. But the ttemp dial...


Inside the fridge compartment, at the back, is a panel that can be removed, remove the screws careful with the bulb, its plugged in behind the panel.

the panel has a vent that allows cold air flow from the freezer, this will often freeze completely shut with ice. let it thaw out, then check to see that the vent opens, or closes when you turn the dial, the best thing is to open it as wide as possible, I even used toothpicks to open the valve even more, its just a thin flap, surrounded by Styrofoam.

afterwards if your fridge is too cold, adjust the real thermostat located in the freezer.
