Hi if the freezer appears to work and the fridge if warm,the problem is that the freezer is over frozen and blocking the vents which send cold air into the fridge when required,and the noise is the fan hitting the the ice build up,defrost (switch off)your applinace for at least 36 hours then switch back on,you will then find after the freezer reaches -12 the fridge will then start to go cold.

Sure it's worth fixing, in fact you can probably do this yourself. This is usually caused by either a broken defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer/control. Take all the food out of your freezer and remove any shelving that might be in the freezer. Remove the rear panel in the freezer and you'll see ice blocking the air ducts going into the refrigerator compartment. Use a hair dryer to carefully thaw ALL of the ice. Also check the defrost drain while you have it apart. The defrost drain is located in the freezer, in the middle. It's a small hole going out of the bottom middle of the freezer. Pour a coffee cup of hot water down the tube. If it drains, you're okay. If it puddles up, you have an ice blockage and you need to pour more hot water in the hole until it drains freely. Reassemble your freezer and if the problem comes back in a couple weeks or months, you know you have a bad part. Usually the defrost thermostat. It's a small round part that is about the size of a golf ball. It has 2 wires going to it. See if it's bulging.

I have a samsung fridge freezer model no RSH1DTMH and the fridge will not go lower than 13degrees and the freezer and water dispenser seem ok. The fridge freezer is only 3 years old. Any ideas/


We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.

Refrigerator compartment doesn't chill


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Yes, the difusser door is not allowing cold air to enter the fridge section, a fridge freezer is actually just a freezer, some of the cold air is drawn off from the freezer to chill the fridge protion, if the door is stuck, broken no cold air is getting to the fridge section

Fridge motor is very very noisy


It sounds like it could be ice around the fan motor. Unplug it and let it defrost for about 12 hrs with the doors open. Plug it back in and see if it has quit making the noise. If it did it probably needs the defrost timer replaced. Good luck. kstfas

My fridge makes loud popping noises and is over cold (freezing the things in the fridge & frosting up the freezer, when it is a frost free freezer)


Check in your owners manual for a "noise" section to see if you can identify the source. Refers make lots of unusual noises so it helps to understand if they are normal or not. Over cold in the fridge may be due to the air damper system being stuck open or food placed too close to the air duct outlet. Frost in the freezer can be due to moisture getting inside from a bad door seal, etc.
