Question about Refrigerators
Hi All, I have a freezer bottom Samsung. The freezer works fine but the fridge part is staying around 50-60. I took the plate in the back of the fridge off and the coil was frozen solid. I unplugged the fridge and let it thaw out. When I plugged the fridge back in, the compressor started up but the fan in the fridge didn't come on. The freezer went back to its set temp, and the fridge cooled down 20 degrees but is staying steady at 50 now. The display on the front says it is at the set temp, but an stand alone thermometer I put in there is saying its 50. I replaced the fan motor thinking that was the problem but no luck. I pressed the top two buttons simultaneous to get the diagnosis from the computer and all the displays lit up (not sure what that means or if I did it right). What should I do?

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........
In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.
Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.
Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)
Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

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!
