Re: Clicking

This unit, I believe is a piezo electric cooling/warming unit. It's possible that after or during your defrost, the control board was exposed to excess moisture... whether by condensation (sweating), evaporation or direct contact with the melted water. In this case, if you plugged the unit in before allowing sufficient dry time, it would have shorted your control board. Possibly allow the unit to dry (unplugged) for 24-48 hours and retry. If the same symptom occurs, replace the control board.

Re: Clicking

Take the back cover off and unscrew the control board from the cover. Unplug the fan and plug the fridge in. While it's plugged in and on, reconnect the fan. this worked for our fridge.

Hi there, I have a Samsung RS21DCNS F/F. and have just moved house and connected it all back up. The LED display lights up, but the fridge and freezers won't cool and there's no motor or fan...

Was the fridge laying down? How long? Rule is if a fridge is laying down for an hour leave standing for a minium of an hour WITHOUT PLUGGED IN. ^hours laying equals 6 hrs standing. I tell everyone give it 24hrs of standing to eliminate problems. If you plugged it in without enough time for the oil in the compressor to return back to the compressor you may have fried your compressor. Now if you did leave it long enough and the oil in the compressor got back in compressor before plugging in. It could be in your defrost timer or your start relay. Does the fan in freezer come on? Push the switch to make the fridge think door is shut. If fan does not run it sounds like the defrost timer. If fan does run the check the start relay on compressor. Does the compressor turn on? Do you hear a clicking sound coming from copressor? If you hear a clicking noise than its your start relay trying to come on. Replace start relay and overload. The model number you gave me is not valid so get the full model number and check thru

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

Well mine went through some of the same thing the fridge put out less and less cold ait and the freezer started to thaw just a tad on max settings. Mines about 8 years old and a kenmore.
Made the decision on an opportune time when Sears was having an additional 10% off sale..... my problem will be fixed ina bout 2 hours when my new fridge is delivered. The sad truth is (I now its cliche) they don't make um like they used to. Last fridge i had lasted nearly 20 years. Now if you get more than 5 out of an appliance you're doing good. Good luck but it sounds like the compressor died. You'll either need an expert to come out (think they have a min fee of $100 or more) or repalce it.
