You will need to check the drain line in the back of the freezer for blockage.

SOURCE: samsung fridge RS2630SH, side by side, icing up on freezer.

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.

SOURCE: Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side... Problem:

I don't have one to offer, but I have removed and fixed the fan, so I can offer you these suggestions:

1. Disconnect the power.

2. The fan is located at the back of the unit behind the removable panel. The panel is held on by about 8 Phillips machine screws.

3. Disconnect the fan by unclipping the connector; simply push the tab on the front and pull straight down.

4. The whole fan assembly pulls out by sliding the fan case out towards you. It may take a bit of a pull as there are tabs holding it in. Once it's loose, you will have to turn it sideways to get it past the condenser tubing.

5. Replacement is exactly the opposite operation; the fan assembly will push into place. You'll here a click when the tabs have engaged.

SOURCE: Small amount of water leaks from the front of my Samsung R2630SH.

I found out that there is a plastic panel that cools three draws inside the refrigerator. Behind the plastic panel there is an evaporator (coolant childer) that catches the condensation of repeatedly opening and closing the refrigerator door that turns into thick ice. Because of condensation, ice buildup in such a way that the ice pushes the middle draw out causing the door to open. In turn depending on how long the door stays open, melts the ice and the water leaks under the bottom draw out on either side of the front refrigerator door. Also, there is a drain plug that is also iced closed. To solve that problems, the unplug the refrig, put towel under the refrig, removed the panel (unplugging the wires and removing screws) and took a hair blow dryer to melt the ice. Oh, by the way, I used to blow dryer to melt the ice from the panel before I could remove the panel. That job took all day. I removed all the ice and reassembled the panel and replace the drawers. To my amazing, no more leaks and the water dispenser worked for two days and quit. I believed the water tank (plastic container in front of the panel has frooze again. By the way the ice maker did not work after removing the ice.

SOURCE: My samsung rs2630sh is very very hot to the touch

The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

Water leaking from inside the freezer


if the bottome of the freezer floor is frozen then the most common cause is that the defrost drain is cloged, the back wall will mostlikley need to be removed and defrosted, then i use hot water & a long zip tie to make sure the drain is clear, don't use anything too hard as to punch a hole in a drain hose.

My samsung rs2630sh, has water pooling at the bottom of the freezer. Water will also leak out of the until onto the floor. the ice buit up so much had to break it up just to get the bottom tray out. Any...


I have the same problem. Water from the defrost coil is not running out the outlet, but freezing in the defrost "catch" pan and outlet tube. Once water freezes, then water from subsequent defrost cycles, runs into the freezer floor and eventually out to the front or side. I don't have a permanent solution, but you can take the inside panel off with the four screws and see the problem. Chip out the ice dam and clear pathway with very hot water. I have read that lowering the freezer temp may prevent. Open to new ideas or permanent solutions. Good luck!
