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

Freezer will not freeze ice ceam

Before you go any further it is important that you check for freezer temps. Yes, you have frozen items but remember that water freezes at 32 degrees and many items will get hard at that temp. And also remember that the lower the temp the longer frozen items will keep.

But ice cream needs proper freezer temps close to zero degrees. Use a digital thermostat and check for your freezer temp - bet it it is no where near zero. I had the same problem and attributed it to the fact that I was not using a name brand ice cream!!!! I was wrong ! LOL.

How do I get the flex zone drawer down to 29 degrees?

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.

I hope that helps.

Frost is building up in bottom freezer. Appliance is running nonstop. I believe that the freezer drawer has been shut completely. Foods in refrigerator section are fine; foods in freezer section are...

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.

Mbf2256keq1 bottom freezer back wall of freezer gets covered in ice and refrig doesn't get cold. We have to shut off for a day to let it defrost but will only last a couple of months until it does it...

Dear friend! Most of the customers are not advised by supplier how to use fridge and maintain.
Please keep thermostat at 5 degree or less little. If you keep temp in minus will make over freezing and also defrost timing will be after long time. It will create over ice formation around the freezer by which the freezer fan will be blocked or disturbed to work. Resulting to less or no temp in fridge compartment. Please ensure, thermostat,defrost timer and heater are working properly. Thanks.

Water leaks inside

It's due to wrong temp setting and malfunction of defrost cycling. Keep thermostat setting at 5 degree or little less. And don't keep it in minus,as defrost cycle will take longer time. And also you will get less cooling in fridge compartment and also water leaks.Check drain line hose may freezed. And also freezer tray get blocked due to over frosting around freezer. Defrost manually by unplug your fridge and after defrost all ices, plug again and keep correct temp setting. Thanks.

My L.G french door frige GR-B218WV ices up under the freezer drawer causing the drawer to jam or not close fully the seals seemto be in good order what can I do. regards Ern.

This is the common problem to everyone. Due to defrost failure. Check temp setting is not very low. Keep 5 degree.. Check thermostat, defrost timer are working properly. Now, manuyally press defrost switch or turn counter clockwise your thermostat. Then fridge shuts off and wait for sometimes to get complete defrost and then restart again by turning thermostat clockwise. Helpful?

The display unit keeps flashing on the fridge side on my samsung RS20CCVS.

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.

Kenmore elite refrigerator. both compartments (bottom freezer and top refrigerator)are not keeping with the temperature setting. the food is cool but not cold as it should be. how can I test to see if...

Really most folks have to keep their setting on their fridge on about a 6-7 or-8 setting with the amount of food that is kept in the fridge now.
YOU CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE RELATIVE temp if you like by placing a fridge thermometer in the appliance. Optimal fresh food should be around 40-43 degrees F on average to keep things on the cooler side without freezing.
Hope this helps
