Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

Fridge not keeping cool RS267LASH

My Samsung RS267LASH side by side refrigerator is not keeping a steady temp. Freezer works fine. It wasn't staying cool, so we unplugged it and waited 9 mins as the manual suggested. It seemed to work fine for a few hours, and then the temp got warm again. It seems it's fluctuating from 34 degrees to about 54 degrees. It's not near a heat source, it's plenty far away from the wall.

    same EXACT problem. What can I do?

    The right side of the fridge is not working, again. We bought this about 18 months ago, and six months ago we had to replace the compressor on the right side. The technician said it has a design flaw that causes the compressor to ice over and burn out. Now, it has happened again. The first repair cost us about $400 through Sears. Not sure that it is worth it to fix it again.

    Bought a samsung french door from Lowes in November 2006. It worked fine for about years. In February 2009 the refrigerator side temperture warmed to about 50 degrees while the readout on the door showed a temp of 38 degrees. After a week of trying to get the unit to reset by unplugging for 10-30 minutes, I called samsung to arrange for service. The warranty was on good for one year so repairs arenot covered by Samsung. Naturally I didn't buy an extended warranty, since I was getting rid of a GE refrigerator that was still working after 19 years, Samsung knows that there is a problem with these units. Some repair shop won't service them anymore because of the recurring problems with the units maintaining the proper tempeture. So, it's back to Lowes to complain about the product line they're carrying. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT SAMSUNG APPLIANCES ****!!! THEY SHOULD RECALL THESE MODELS AND ISSUE REFUNDS!!

    same thing are freezer would defrost then start working again and then it would repeat the cycle. Now the fridg side does the same thing. We called a repairmen to come fix it. They charged 250 and said it was the condenser fan. He said it will be working in about 3 hours and it was. So I bought a bunch of food thinking the problem was solved only to wake up the next morning to a drippy fridg. Called the repairman back and he is now on vacation. Dont no if we should put any more money into this samsung unit. Its the rs267ash. Guess what its working this morning...I dont trust it...

    Freezer side works fine (side by side) After 6 months, the fridge side stopped cooling. Repairman deiced the coil, and replaced a "temp sensor". Worked for two weeks. Repairman deiced it again, and replaced the main circuit board. Worked for a bit. Repairman deiced it again, and said he didn't realize it had 2 sensors in the fridge section, and he replaced the "defrost sensor". These repairs spanned approximately 5 weeks, as there was a 6-8 day wait for parts in between the 3 service visits. Now, 2 yrs later, it's doing the same thing...repairs are now at my expense. Same repairman deiced the coil in the fridge side again, and replaced the defrost sensor. He said the fan was working, and if it stopped cooling again, he would have to replace the main circuit board - $109.00 cdn. Well, 2 weeks later, it isn't cooling again, and I've already spent $182.00 cdn for 2 service calls and a $13.00 part. More costs to come, no doubt....if there is a design flaw, then Samsung should fix it gratis. I am really pissed!!!!! My advice is don't buy any Korean appliances except LG tvs. I am really pissed.

    The refridgerator side of the unit has stopped cooling and will not lower to a temp below about 50 degrees. The Freezer side seems to be working fine for the moment. We are VERY frustrated as we have only used the Fridge for about 4 months.

Hi Adshegern,

I think you have a fan problem. Your refrigerator mus have a bad fan or not working fan. I suggest you full out the refrigerator and open back lower cover. Two months ago, I have a problem like your. I fixed by replace a fan. You have to options to fix it.

Option 1. Check your refrigerator's fan with voltage. It think it should be 120VAC. If yes, you can buy a fan from electronics store (it cost about $12.00 to $17.00). they you remove the old fan and its motor out. Install the new fan in. Then you need to drill 4 holes to tie the fan. By doing this, you keep the fan running stable. The fan won't vibrate.

Option 2. You can go online to this website and buy an exactly the one you need and replace the old one. It cost about $40.00.

Good luck

The freezer is fine steady at 0, but the refrigerator temperature keeps rising currently at 67 degrees.

Check the freezer make sure you do not have frost build up. Defrost problems choke out the air flow and if it happens the refrigerator will not cool.

My freezer remains cold at the proper temperature however the refrigerator is about 60 degrees. The fan is working in side the refrigerator. Sumsung Model# RS267LASH

That is way too warm for a refrigerator, those temps are unafe to keep food - it should be no warmer than 40F, and optimally 34F. For your freezer no warmer than 10F, optimal is 0F and colder.

If your freezer is within those temps, then your evap fan is working normally - you might want to have your damper checked - it is a flap that opens and closes as needed to circulate cold air to your refrigerator - if this damper is stuck and woN't open or open wide enough your refrigerator won't get the needed cooling.

You might want to check for leaky gaskets in your door.

Model #RS267LASH fridge is not cooling but freezer side is. What could be the problem with this Samsung? Thanks,

If your RS267LASH refridgerator is not cooling it is because it is not defrosting. In order to fix it they will have to take it into the shop to cut into the copper wiring, remove the freon and change out the probe inside. The parts and labor are covered under warranty for 5 years. This was the last thing done to mine after changing out the board, a fan, and a thermocouple.
