You have to pull out the sensor from the board and test with tester, both sensor should read the resistance of 10,000 to 20,000 ohms. The reading that you show is very low it means that the thermistor is out of range and need replacement.

Welcome to FixYa.

I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.
If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about.

**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor...


Your actual condensor fan assembly may differ in appearance, but generally this is what to look for.

But just so you know, the amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,

1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.

2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.

3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.

4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.

These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.

Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.

Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.

Water tank in refrigerator freezing

If you have already tried to turn the refrigerator thermostat down so it does not get so cold then I would call Samsung about it.
There maybe a repair kit for this they can send you. I know a number of other manufactures have them for this same problem. If often included a newly designed water reserve tank and some new water line.
Samsung Support 1-800-726-7864
You will want to have your model and serial number ready when you call.

Not cooling? check for the light and the thermostat is that being set properly? See the compressor if its making a humming sound or making a noise the ref is not cooling properly. There a lot of possible problem better call a technician.

I have this refrigerator and the fan on the bottom is not working and the middle of the refrigerator is hot. Is this something I can repair or do I need to get a repairman. It is a samsung side by side...

more often than not, with the samsung id say get a repair man, heres the reason
with these units everything is low voltage, so trying to take a reading somewhere is sketchy at best, plus ive replaced those fans only to find out it was a thermistor, ive replaced the thermistor only to find out its the control board
it sucks i know and im sorry but these units need to be checked on site for the best diagnosis
but whatever you do dont call the big s company
they have no idea, and dont go to training on em

Samsung rs2630sh

My RS2630SH frige side does not cool, but freezer side is ok with more-than-normal frost. Call Samsung, they say to unplug for an hour to reset unit. Have not try it yet, but worth a try, since it is over the warrenty period.
