Question about Samsung Refrigerators
20-12-12 Unit was showing -20C Freezer and +3 Fridge but actually not cooling. When switched off,then back on, then showing +6 Freezer and +14 Fridge. Xmas shopping spoilt. 04-01-13 Samsung replace PCB and Inverter circuit boards,plus cable and connection unit to compressor (except for the Relay Protector item part number 4TM 319SFBYY-82 IFM8K written on existiong unit or possibly ends with BK190 as per buyspares.co.uk??) Compressor still not starting. Claim to be unrepairable??? Internal wiring fault?? Unit is 3 years old, immaculate as new condition in appearance. My findings: When the unit is swithed on the compressor seems to trip a relay on the PCB therefore not allowing to start. Multi meter shows 240V power to compressor terminal connector at all 3 cables?? Compressor not to gound after multimeter test. The Relay Protector which is attached to the conection unit on the side of compressor possibly faulty? It rattles, multimeter shows closed circuit, has 2 wires attached,brown cable live 240 V. This unit does not connect to the common terminal of compressor at present, so not sure if this relay is complete or missing a bridge to the common terminal of the compressor? Anyone have any ideas? A wiring diagram would be very helpful if anyone has. Should I bridge the 2 wires from the relay to see if starts? Could the compressor be jammed, tripping the relay before starting? how can you check? Samsung only offer a partial refund towards the cost of replacent so I really need to fix this as it's now been almost 3 weeks without a fridge freezer, family of 5. Am hoping to get a replacment Relay Protector via the Samsung Technician to try. Anyone give any advice on above please Thanks Jeff
