Samsung SRS615DP Freezer Light Flash - both stop cooling

My Samsung SRS615DP is having issues and needs to be FixYa'd. Replaced control board as interface buttons stopped working. Worked great for about 4 weeks and now freezer light starts flashing the set temperature (-20oC/4oF) both fridge and freezer then loose cooling ability. Turn off and on, will work for varied durations and then same thing. No error code light, just flashing set freezer temp on freezer side ONLY. Went through Fixya, thought maybe a defrost issue, pulled off fridge and freezer internal panels, and NO ice. (See image link) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/41804/Coil.jpg https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/41804/SRS615DP.jpg Any suggestions?

You have to pull out the sensor from the board and test with tester, both sensor should read the resistance of 10,000 to 20,000 ohms. The reading that you show is very low it means that the thermistor is out of range and need replacement.

SOURCE: Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working

http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: Fridge stopped working, freezer still works

HI
If the compressor doesn't run, it is likely that the defrost timer is malfunctioning. This part is located near the compressor. To test the defrost timer:

Step 1: 
Unplug the refrigerator.

Step 2: 
Disconnect the wires from the timer and timer motor. Remove the timer from its brackets by backing out two retaining screws.

Step 3: 
Test the defrost timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Clip one probe of the VOM to each defrost timer -- not motor -- wire, and turn the timer control screw shaft until it clicks. If the defrost timer is functioning, the meter will read zero. If the needle jumps, the defrost timer is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type.

Step 4: 
Connect the new defrost timer the same way the old one was connected.

To check the defrost timer motor, clip one probe of the VOM to each motor wire, setting the scale to RX100. If the meter reads between about 500 and 3,000 ohms, the motor is functioning properly. If the meter reads higher than 3,000 ohms, the timer motor is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new motor the same way the old one was connected.

Try setting it to lower temperature. If that don't work the thermostat is bad.

Stuart:

I own a Samsung Model RF267 ABPN and am experiencing the exact same problem. If you go through the fixya Web site you will find this is a fairly common problem with the Samsung Refrig. There are 4 schools of thought:
1. Press and hold power freeze and power cool buttons at same time for 10 seconds to reset.
2. Press and hold the Energy Saver and Lighting buttons at he same time for 8-10 seconds.
3. Unplug the unit for 10 minutes and plug it back in.
4. Replace electronic circuit boards (for example the main board found in the backof the unit or a board that controls the dislay found in the door.
I would be interested in how your unit responds to #1 or #2.
Good Luck

My Samsung DLP HLR5667W went blank. Just before it went out, I was unable to control volume/mute. I replaced the lamp ($175 a Walt's ripoff shop) and the TV worked for four hours then died again


I would guess that it could be the main board going bad. Check all our connections and wiring. You should call places like Tri-State Module and they can probably send you a part or repair for way less than 500 bucks.

My tv [vizio vf550m] won't respond to a remote.


Vizio is famous for having main board issues. If you have replaced the IR board the only two other items it could be is a broken wire from the IR to main or the main board has an issue. Nothing else can stop the remote from working provided the remote is working properly.

Fridge Won't Cool


First off that "condenser fan motor" needs to be replaced. It is not running near the speed it needs to. (I replace those all the time on the job) Here is the replacement to order.Also, based on the information you provided, it sounds like the main control board is sticking in defrost and you will need to replace the main control board on the unit. GE has an updated control board that address's this problem along with some other issues the original control board had.Here is the updated board to order.
All the parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.



Keep me posted!

Fridge section not cooling enough but freezer OK


Is the fan blowing in the freezer section? Also, check to see if you have airflow thru the damper (vent) in the frig section.

My Samsung RS2530BWP stopped cooling in the refrigerator and freezer. I replaced the main board and the refrigerator is running, but it will not cool inside at all. It has been 24 hours, but still no...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Control lock button is on and will not clear to wash clothes


Hi, Whirlpool makes their control lock very confusing. Often times, people will look on the control panel and the control lock light will go on and they can not figure out how to unlock the control panel. They will try pressing and holding the cancel button and unplugging the washer or dryer to reset it. None of these options work. All you need to do is press and hold the end of cycle button for 3 seconds and the control panel will unlock. If that doesn't unlock your controls, then unfortunately your interface control board is just shorted and will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue.
