SOURCE: My Samsung refrigerator will not cool

Call Samsung. I had the same problem when Best Buy delivered mine. The delivery people left the fridge in demo mode. The people at Samsung will talk you through it, it is very simple. The fridge should work fine then.

SOURCE: I have a samsung rb1944sl.

If it cools for few minutes or few hours, then quirt cooling , but when you unplug and re-plug, it starts cooling and same cycle/ problem repeats.Then its main control board problem.But if main board is already replaced, then the other possibility is weak compressor or compressor low on refrigerant.When the compressor gets weak, it will not cool properly, or when Freon/ refrigerant is low in compressor then it will not cool the unit properly.----------- In some cases its noticed that new brand board comes bit faulty.So that can be also possible.In some cases its seen, the new board looks very good, but comes faulty.------- But if board is replaced properly and confirmed its not the problem, then compressor needs to be inspected and its refrigerant needs to be tested by tool. Local refrigerator repair tech only has this tools.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Samsung model RB1844SW. Refrigerator and freezer stop cooling. Unplugging and plugging back in resets and it works fine for 7-8 hours before the same problem occurs.

Check if the circulation motor /fan which blows air around the inside is working . It is located near the top of the refer. also check if air is circulating in the freezer there is a main fan in there which sends cold air from the freezer to the refer. If either fan wears out sometimes it runs for a while and sometimes not. the motor chatters sometimes before it dies. I have had defroster control timers go bad, causing this problem too, because the refer goes into defrost cycle and doesn't go back to refrigerate mode till the defrost cycle is over. if the timer clock stops it will do the same thing, and not go in to refer mode. Good luck, Bill

The ice maker will not quit dispensing ice and it no longer cools

For now unplug the pin plug at lower freezer door hinge and disable the dispenser control board until we see if the keyboard or the dispenser board is at fault. Sea Breeze

Stops cooling ice melts and leaks water on the floor

That model refrigerator uses the mother control board for deciding when defrost is to take place. It has no defrost timer or Adaptive Defrost Control like other refrigerators. This sounds like *********** board part number WR55X10942 is malfunctioning. The board decides most functions of your refrigerator. Until the board is replace I do not believe the problem will resolve itself. Thanks, Sea Breeze
