Power Cool button works on freezer , but not fridge

We have had no water for 36 hours, during which time the fridge temperature went up to 12 degrees. The water came back on , but doesn't come through the water dispenser anymore. Power cool button doesn't work on the fridge . Are these two things related? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.Alisonkj

Re: Power Cool button works on freezer , but not fridge

He Alisonki! I was having the same problem. On mine the water coil inside the refrigerator keeps freezing which keeps the water from circulating and my refridge won't stay cold. I was told by one repairman that it was a computer problem and you have to order parts from the Samsung Manufactuer which takes about 2 - 3 weeks to get. I am tossing mine and buying a more reliable brand. One repairman came yesterday and left without fixing anything or charging me. Larry

I am having LG GR-B352 YC , what is the best temperature that i can keep initially and future??

Generic instructions to set temperatures in fridges:

Many manufacturers design these appliances to operate at 0 degrees F in the freezer and 34 to 36 degrees F in the fresh food compartment.

To set the temperature correctly, fill a glass with water (8 to 12 ounces) and place a thermometer capable of indicating 32 degrees and up into the glass with water (if the temperature goes below 32 degrees, the water will freeze - so no need to find a thermometer that indicates any lower). Place the glass with the thermometer in it on a shelf and wait. Putting the thermometer in a glass of water helps preserve the temperature reading while the door is open. You can skip the water and glass if you want - but you'll need to read the temperature as soon as you open the door.

The freezer will require a thermometer capable of displaying 0 degrees F. Place it on a shelf where it can be seen readily - but preferably in the rear - between items (to prevent the warm air from driving the indicator up when opening the door to read it).

It will probably be easier to set the freezer temperature first. Adjust both the freezer and fresh food thermostats to mid-points (if the fridge is empty - otherwise skip this step). Adjust the freezer thermostat up or down as needed to reach the desired 0 degree F temperature.

Once the freezer adjustments are complete, adjust the fresh food compartment thermostat as needed up or down to reach the desired temperature for it.

If you fridge is fully stocked, it may take some time for the temperature to stabilize and warm / cool the fridge's contents completely. This is further affected by how often the door(s) are opened and for how long. 24 hours is often claimed - but you might be able to sneak an 8 - 12 hour soak before reading the thermometers.

After the temperatures are set, you may find that the lower part of the fresh food area is partially freezing - simply adjust the thermometer up *slightly* as needed.

Please rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

The display unit keeps flashing on the fridge side on my samsung RS20CCVS.

When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower the the set temperature for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree. some times those friges fail to calibrate them self tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds and replug it then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.

Water dispenser not working

I am currently experiencing the same problem. It happen when I pressed the rapid cool button on the inside of the fridge and the temperature went down to 36 degree F. I assume that my water line is frozen. As soon as we use up some of the food in the fridge, I'm going to clean out the fridge and let the temperature rise, hopefully thawing the blockage. This is the only thing that I can think of.

Samsung french door fridge not working?

I had the same problem ("OF" on display and not working) and just found a fix and it worked (on SAMSUNG site).It was correctly stated that fridge is in "demo" mode. You need to push and hold POWER FREEZE and ENERGY SAVER buttons (not "Fridge button and the Power Cool buttons" as it was suggested above).

Not cooling

Listen for a clicking noise from the compressor. Could be a bad relay on the compressor, sealed system problem, or faulty board.

Frigidaire 7.5 cu.ft. Top Freezer the fridge part doesn't cool; freezer is fine.

It should be under warranty, retry he is probably right, run for 24hrs and it should work ok, if you ever defrost you should turn off for 24hrs and leave the door open. Regards Advisor
