Question about Samsung RS2530BBP (25 cu ft) Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Refrigerator side not cooling. Freezer works fine.

Researching this issue and found that the issue may be the defrost timer. I unplugged the unit and let it set for about 6 hours and now there is water in the drip pan that wasn't there before. I have been trying to locate the defrost timer but I am not able to locate it. I read on other sites that this model does not have a defrost timer but that there is a defrost sensor on the heater. Is there a defrost timer on this model and if so, where is it and what does it look like and can I replace it myself? This unit is only 4 years old and I really can't afford to replace it. I have been looking for a diagram but have not been able to locate one. I have the users manual but it does not have a parts diagram. Thanks!!

SOURCE: inside fan area freezing up (no defrost?)

hi there this is a common fault you need to replace the evaporator cover with the new modified one which has a large heat sink around the fan to stop iceing up also you will need to replace the thermal fuse and the defrost sensor.

hope this is of some help

SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

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

That model has a flaw that the defrost heater is woven into the evaporator. I think you may have a 5 year sealed system warranty and if the defrost element is defective the complete sealed system evaporator will need replaced. So I believe that a complait filed to the company regarding this flaw will get their attention and may solve the cost of repair.

Maytag side by side msd264rheb freezer works frig isn't cold. We found ice on bottom freezer side and did melt it with a hair dryer. Frig vent is letting in, now a little cool air, but not a lot.


If you found ice in the freezer then there is usually a lot more behind the back plate. If you let it defrost completely it should work good for a couple days until the ice builds up again. you more than likely have a deefrost issue. There are usually nthree components in a typical defrost circiut. The heater, defrost thermostat and a defrost timer or control. one or those is bad.

Freezer side not cold enough, similar temperature as Refrigerator side


It could be many things. My first guess would be the defrost. The coil that gets cold in your freezer builds ice on it and the only way to get the ice off is to run a heater near the coil long enough for the ice to melt. All freezers have something built in to defrost and domestic are typically just an electric heater on a timer. When your freezer stops working again, you may want to pull open the panel of your freezer and see if your coil (a heat exchanger that probably looks a lot like your car radiator) is covered in ice. If it is, it could be the timer or the actual heater that is bad.

The freezer part of my fridge is working fine the fresh food part is not cooling we cleaned everything and there was ice built up on the flap so we unplugged it overnight and we noticed the fan not working...


Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

sounds like a defrost problem ...
maybe the heater or defrost thermostat is bad...

he should bypass the timer and jump the heater to see if its woking...if not then i would remove the heating element for further testing. if the heater checked ok..it would only leave the defrost timer to blame.

good luck
