Question about Samsung RS2556 Side by Side Refrigerator

Freezer defrost all. RS2556

I noticed water dripping from the water and ice dispencer. I used the ice dispenser to get ice and it came out mostly melted. The freezer was meting everything inside. The fridge was ok, 40F. The panel had the freezer temperature blinking at 2F, but if I pressed the temperature button for the freezer nothing happened. Finally I unplugged it, and plugged it again after 10 minutes. The freezer temperature stop blinking and it was now 74F. The freezer started working again. How could that happen? It looks like the freezer went in defrost mode and stayed there. One doubt I had was the I got some ice and the little ice door got stuck. Would that trigger that defrost reaction? When I plugget it again I heard a strong noise, the same I hear a couple of seconds after having gotten ice. What else may have done it? Thanks

Re: Freezer defrost all. RS2556

The most likely is that the door was not closed properly, this is very common on this model, what happens is that the door closes against the freezer contens and therefore appears closed, this allows warm air into the unit which starts to melt the ice, if this should happen again it is a good idea to completely defrost overnight with the doors open and then re start the next morning as ice often builds up behind the rear panel.

Water collecting on top shelf of refridgerator

Your defrost drain line in the freezer has stopped up. The defrost water is coming in through the air vent to the fresh food section.
Turn the unit off and use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole located behind the freezer panel.

Freezer won't reached desired temp or make ice

Most definately you do. somehow air got in while you were away. 12 hour defrost with doors open will help.(insulation in side by side normally thick).Had one like that approx. 2 months ago but fridge was not well treated and they damaged rubber seal at water and ice dispencer area.

Water dribbling out of dispencer whirlpool american fridgefreezer

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Water dripping from inside of freezer compartment.

The condensate drain has a blockage further down and possibly in one of the turns as it leads down to the pan below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie2.gif that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water accumulating in bottom of freezer

The water was not coming from the dispenser or the ice maker. It is a result of a plugged defrost drain tube.
When the refrigerator goes into defrost, if the water is unable to get out the defrost drain, it ends up on the floor of the freezer. You will have to clear out the defrost drain. It is a tube which is behind the back wall of the freezer compartment, at the very bottom of the cooling coils. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush it out until the water runs out the drain (and into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator where it will evaporate as the fan blows air over it).

Water collects and freezes in the bottom of the freezer

Your defrost drain is clogged. Get all the ice out and get to the defrost drain hole at the very rear bottom of the freezer. I use a piece of plastic tubing to run down them and clean them out, but you can use a piece of wire if it doesn't have a sharp end that will damage the tube. You can also remove the rear cover of the fridge and you will see the tube going from the cabinet to the drain pan and clean it from there. Post back if you need further help.
