Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge & Freezer not cooling

I have a Side By Side fridge model SRS611HDHSS thats causing a bit of a headache. I have put in data loggers to monitor whats wrong and found the fridge & freezer will both cool perfectly for 6hrs and get down to -17degrees and stop dead for another 12hrs slowly getting warm to 25degrees.

Exactly at 10-12hrs it will start again and cool perfectly for another 6hrs, only to stop dead again. It keeps cycling like this for 2 weeks now.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction - so hopefully I can fix it. Keep in mind this fridge has twin evaporators and both sides does the exact same thing.

Fridge s/s cool on freezer but no air cooling fridge side


First, inspect the back wall of the freezer for frost build-up. Defrost failures are a common cause for incorrect fridge temps, and the frost will block air-flow even if your damper is wide open. if there is no frost, verify that the evaporator fan in the freezer is spinning, THEN check the damper door to see if it is open during cooling. Call a tech, guessing will likely lead to a broken machine and/or tons of wasted money!

On my Maytag side by side, stainless steel fridge, Model #: MSD2651KES. The freezer works perfectly, but the fridge will not get cold, but if you open the freezer it will start sending cold air to the...


Its defrost problem.--------- When you open the freezer door, then ice starts getting defrosted, because outside temperature is warm and due to that inside ice gets bit melted.--------- -------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is blocked by ice, because your refrigerator is not defrosting.But when you open the freezer door, the inside ice gets bit warm and it starts melting and this lets the fridge section get cool.------------------- In this case you will have to manually defrost the ice and inspect, if the problem solves.For manual defrost procedure, click the link below:-------- Click this below for more detail:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/refrigerator-is-not-cooling-properly.html ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Have a Kenmore model 106.5702602 side-by-side for 1 year and can't get rid of freezer odor...have tried everything and can't put anything in freezer that isn't affected by this smell. Help!


the air blows from freezer to fridge side and then returns from fridge to freezer,so it could be and usually is something on fridge side causing odors or funny tasting ice cubes,check under bottom draws on fridge side,what kind of odor is it?

GE side by side. Freezer cold, fridge kinda cool


your defrost timer is bad. this device is dual purpose, it is a small heater/solenoid that calls for the compressor to turn off so the lines can defrost (usually does it once every 48 hours or so). it looks like a round button clipped to the coil lines in the freezer behind the plastic paneling where the cold air comes out. you need to replace that part, which is actually very inexpensive compared to a new fridge. it will unclip from the coil line and the two or three wires will either disconnect or you may have to cut them and splice on the new ones from the new defrost timer. either way it is a job that will take anyone with basic hand tools less than an hour to do.

Maytag Fridge (Model # MZD2766GEW) not cooling


Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side.
