Question about Samsung 24.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Platinum... Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

I think it's a motor problem

I have a Samsung - 24.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator (a little over a year old), well its not cooling the fridge and it no longer freezes the freezer. The motor, I believe its the motor, hums for about 35secs every 3minutes and ends with a click. It sounds like it is trying to trigger itself to run but never gets into gear to circulate cool and freezing air. Is this common and is there an answer I can try before calling a tech.

Your problem is the compressor (motor) start relay. They are inexpensive and availible locally from a refrigeration parts supplier. Check the wiring diagram on the back of your unit for installation help.

My Amana 26 cu ft side by side quit cooling entirely in the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it worth it to get a repairman or should we just get a new frig. This one is 6 years old


I suggest get help with repairman.6 year old is not very old.Refrigerators have life more then 8 to 10 years.The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

New samsung side by side fridge/freezer won't keep my milk cold.


dependant on model if the freezer is ok then the fridge evaporator is iced up restricting air flow.. a 24/48hr total defrost usually cures the problem.. if it reoccurs then a more exploratory test of heaters and sensors will be required..Thanks

Freezer side blowing all the time and fridge side is warm with no cooling on amana side by side unpluged and defosted with hair dryer and it worked for a couple days then went back warm in fridge side...


You have a defrost issue.
Adaptive defrost control.
Defrost thermostat.
Defrost heater.
These are the only 3 parts involved.
If there was a model number I could be more help.

Not refrigerating


DO you have a thermometer to check the temp in both sections? MY first guess at the temp problem is that the fan has quit OR the vent betwen the freezer and the fridge is blocked. I bet on the fan being bad. Open the fridge door and hold in the little switch that operates the light. YOu should hear a fan running . If not, then the fan is kaput.. JOhnno.
