SOURCE: Fridge stopped cooling

We had the same problem today and it was because I had not closed the freezer completely a week ago and the evaporator coil in freezer was completely iced up. A blow dryer defrosted the coil quickly. It is best to empty the freezer first and shut fridge off. You need to defrost the coil enough so air will flow through the coil. To cool the fridge cold air is drawn from this coil by an evaporator fan located above this coil behind the removable cover at rear of freezer. IF you remove this cover and this fan is turning check for ice on coil. That is probably the problem. Evap. fan is about $100 - ouch. The other thing you can check is the fridge damper control at top rear of fridge. This failed on us 13 months after we bought fridge so no warrenty. Part was $44 plus service of $100. Now I fix this fridge myself. If you remove damper cover you can cycle thermostat and see it open and close. If it is not opening replace it. You can probably find the part cheaper that $44 at an apliance parts store.

SOURCE: Samsung RS2533SW freezer not cooling problem

I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.

Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.

You model if the ARB1950C has a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment and behind the temperature control panel. Need to see if you can manualy turn the timer clockwise until the compressor stops. During that time of 25 minutes the freezer should be in defrost. I believe your timer needs replaced based on how you explained what is happening. The part number for your timer is 67001036 and can be found at the links below. If it stays longer that 25 minutes then it's sticking in the defrost section of the defrost timer and will need to be replaced. If your refrigerator does not restart after about 25 minutes then slowly turn the timer through the opening in the plastic cover. There may be a plug covering the hole to make the hole not so visible. If you should have problems fell free to let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

These usually have one compressor and an evaporator on each side with a fan. check the fans first then the defrost timer, heater and limit thermostat.

Samsung Fridge freezer - switches on fine. reaches correct temps .. turns off .. and then dont come back on again HELP HELP HELP


Hallo

It could be the compressor winding's starting to cause it not to start up after running for a while because the drier is blocked and when the drier is blocked it will start running in a vacuum causing it to spark(burn) on the inside of the compressor or could still be in a vacuum and causes it to spark when it should start.

Blinking Fridge Light and Both Fridge & Freezer Warming Up


I would say to contact Servall, a component source for all appliance repairs. They have a Web site and are helpful. You should also try the Web for any repair Manuals for your unit.

There are timers for the Defrost cycle. I am familiar with the old mechanical type, the blinking of the computer type is often in a Code which diagnoses the problem. You need the Manual to translate what the blinks mean.

Freezer works refrigerator does not get cold not sure of the model not home right now am at work


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.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

What is the purpose of two temperature control nobs when there is a single compressor in my samsung 280 lts fridge


1.If this is only a fridge the one knob will be for the min and the other for the max.
max. : As soon as you switch the fridge on it will cool down the fridge to max cool down temp. example -2deg.
min. : As soon as the fridge reaches the max cool down temp and it had switch the compressor off, the fridge will start to warm up slowly, by the time it reaches the min allowed warming up temp, it will switch the compressor back on and do the cycle all over again.
2. If it is a fridge/freezer setup, the one knob will be for the fidge and the other for the freezer. If the temp in the freezer is fine a fan is activated and blows all the cool air to the fridge and controls the temp. by activating the fan.

My fridge not cold but freezer working fine


there is a shaft from freezer to fridge that the cold air travels. make sure that is unblocked. also make sure the fan is working. then see if the freezer coils are iced up (this restricts air flow). if they are, unplug it, empty the fridge and freezer, defrost the coils, dry it out, plug it in and turn it on (not high). once it reaches the temp and the compressor stops, fill the fridge again.

Have a 2 year old SAMSUNG RS2545SH Side by Side


Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
