Re: My fridge won't keep temp..
Most samsung have a fan in the fridge and an evaporator. take off the back plate of the fridge and melt off and excess ice especially round the fan.; if it keeps happening then you have a fault in the defrost system

Your question is a bit ambiguous. If you are using a thermometer be sure it is correct. If you are talking setting the temperature it is explained on page 25 of the manual it gives these instructions:
• Press the Temp button repeatedly until your desired mode is lit.
• Each time you press the Temp button, you change the mode in this order: Meat/ Fish mode (29°F(-1°C)), Cold Drinks mode (33°F(1°C)), Deli/Snack mode (37°F(3°C)), Wine/Party Dishes mode (42°F(5°C)). Initially, the Cold Drinks mode is selected. The refrigerator will adjust the temperature in the Flex Zone automatically to the temperature you selected.
• The Flex Zone Temp. Display may change depending on the number of items inside, where they are located, the ambient temperature, and how often the door is openend.
You gave an excellent description, but you listed it on the Cars and Trucks section. You will not find too many Experts for Refridgerators on the Cars and Trucks section.
I would listen to the E3 Code and use your Web Browser for your make of appliance. Ask questions like "What is E3 defect in your brand of appliance?". The magnet idea is a good one, but check your door pivots at both the top and bottom of the Fridge. The door may not be aligned.
Some appliance makers have online Manuals for their customers.
For parts or possibly the answer of your E3 question, try Servall. They are a franchise, have been around for over 50 Years and may be listed in your phonebook. If not they have a Website. Also may be spelled as Serveall, but I think it is Servall.
Frost can build up for multiple reasons. Most common is the start os an iceblock. Other reasons can include condensation from door being left open or opening too much. It can also happen from backsplash from the inlet tube for the ice maker. If the fridge is running non stop. It sounds like the ice block is forming and the temps are not getting to the program temps. If at factory setting the freezer should be at or around 0 degrees and fridge should be between 42 and 48 degrees. Has the fridge shutdown at all to go into defrost? The defrost timer may have went out and is causing an iceblock. If there is an ice block always change bimetal/ defrost thermostat.
If you need any further assistacne please feel free to comment me.
This is most likely a blocked drain pipe - blocked with ice that is.
Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.
Hi, yes the water line could be starting to ice up; maybe defrosting the fridge will cure the problem.
Mine has a coiled tube behind the lower drawer in the fridge, this is where the water line is chilled.
Hope this helps if you've not sorted the problem already. Kind regards jb
You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.
When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower
the the set temperature
for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree.
some times those friges fail to calibrate them self
tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds
and replug it
then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours
If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.
soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!
Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.
