Question about Samsung RS2556 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Getting a fan error code..

Well last time it was the freezer not the fridge side.. The fridge side was warm and I assumed a family member may have left it open during the night yet again, I'm not sure.. I removed the panel, removed the ice that everyone seems to find as the culprit. And replaced everything.. Started it up, and ****! NO FAN ON THE FRIDGE SIDE. Fig I left the plug undone or something so I removed the panel again, unplugged and plugged everything back in, and still no fan.. I am a terrible electrician, so what I want to know is A> how do I test the female connector in the fridge to see if its actually sending power triggering the fan to come on. B> IF I am not getting power being sent to the fan, what can the culprit be? THE Mystery is that even though it was making noise from the ice buildup, the fan was coming on before said Idiot me, removed the panel. CLUE MAYBE: I plugged the fridge in without the cold drawer installed and the display went wacky for a minute and showed an error. Vertical bar on the left top of the 8.

Im not sure if you have given it time to pull down, but on some fridges after a defrost is done, the fan wont come on untill a certain temp. is reached in the freezer compartment.then all of a sudden the fans start working.

Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator, evaporator fan not running


As insignificant as it may seem, that evap fan motor is as important as petrol in a car. That fan controls the fridge cooling on many fridges and circulation in tha freezer compartment. Replace it with the correct one and you should see a functional fridge/ freezer again. Note, i wouldnt run unit without it for long, as condensig temperatures run high and compressors dont last long.

Fridge not cold


you have a fan motor and blade located between the fridge and freezer. What this fan does is regulates the temp of the fridge from the coldness of the freezer. If this fan is out the fridge will be warm. The fan is losacted in the space between the fridge and freezer on the inside near you temp control switch. Look at the top of the fridge on the inside and you will see a set of vents. The fan is located behind these slotted vents. Take care in removing the plastic cover and remove the motor. Take model and serial# to an appliance parts house for proper replacement.

Hope this helped you some

Fridge section runs warm. Freezer ok it seems.


Sounds like the inside fan is getting worn out. Should vary in speed. Try replacing the fan and see if that fixes it. I'd bet it will. ken

My amana bottom freezer won't cool both the fridge and freezer are warm


I just had the same problem with the same fridge. When I removed the inside panel in the freezer, I found that the cooling/circulation fan had fallen due to the mounting screws having rusted off. I removed the fan housing to get the screw ends out from the back side and remounted the fan with new screws. The fridge and freezer both work fine now and I'm assuming it will for many more years until it happens again.

Fridge side not cooling, Freezer side is....


(After trying FixYa and paying for the premium service -- during which error codes were not even discussed) I called a service tech. Turns out it was the fan above the fridge side (which explains why the freezer was still working fine) that was "humming" but not always spinning. A quck swap of the fan and we were back in business.

FYI -- The SubZero tech said it was very uncommon for the fans to go bad.

Freezer/fridge won't get cold enough


Madezmom, you have a defrost issue. If your model starts with 106 you more than likley have a bad defrost bi-metal, I will attach a picture of bad one. This sits on the evaporator in the freezer section behind the panel. You will have to remove the shelves and remove the back panel. Defrost the evaporator completely. The part number for the bi-metal is 2196155. See if yours is bulged like the one in the attached photo. If so, that's your problem..Catriver..post back.
