Samsung Fridge temp keeps flashing

Hi, I have a Samsung rs21 side by side fridge freezer and the freezer is working great with no problems. The fridge however works for two weeks then the display flashes 6 and the first time this happened we used an hair dryer to melt the ice and it worked again for a further two weeks and now it's gone again with the same issues. I have defrosted the fan and coils slowly with an hair dryer and on powering up the fridge with the front twin cooling section out but the fan plugged in the fan doesn't spin at all. Would this be a fan issue or a problem with the thermostats? Any help would be great and also is it a easy fix? Many thanks Wayne

SOURCE: Iced up Samsung RS21 JGNS Help!!

Defrost the unit and after defrosting, with the unit unplug rotate the fan blade manually using your finger. The fan should rotate freely, the blade should not touch the fan frame. Slow rotation of fan motor can cause icing. Worn out bearing, misalign fan blade, partially burn fan motor can slow the rotation of blower motor.But if the blower operate normally, then the unit may be under charge of refrigerant. Qualified technician is needed with this problem.

SOURCE: samsung fridge RS2630SH, side by side, icing up on freezer.

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: Samsung twin cooling fridge/freezer model

My husband removed the covers inside the fridge which contain the lights and the cooling fan. The problem was the icing up of the cooling fan (which circulates the cold air) preventing it from rotating also the drain hole at the bottom of the fan was also iced up.
The fridge was switched off at the wall socket whilst working on it. After removing the panel containing the fan and unplugging the connection take the panel outside. A hair dryer was used to thaw out the ice. The drain hole was made slightly bigger to hopefully prevent this happening again.
When panel is screwed back in fridge make sure the black sealing tape is in position also take care not to damage cooling pipes which are attached to the evaporator unit. Defrosting a couple of times a year might prevent this happening again. It seems to be a design problem which im sure the makers will be aware of and modify future appliances. Q Will the makers repair this problem free of charge even if the warranty has expired !?

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.

Samsung side by side fridge/ freezer model number RS21NGRS . Fridge side is not cooling . The fan was making a noise and has now stopped but the temp light is flashing how do i sort this problem thans.


Hi, there is a known fault with the Samsung RS21 units. If you unit is less than 5 years in luck, it is covered by the Extended warranty they have put in place. Apparantly this was featured on BBC watchdog!. i've had the same problem and had it fixed free of charge by Samung. Either raise a service request on the Samsung uk web site, www.samung.com/uk or call the customer services on 0845 7267864 and explain you description. the noise is an ice build up which stops the internal fan pushing cold air around the fridge. the bootom of the fridge , in the drawers is cold?

RS21 DCNS FRIDGE COOLING FAULT


There is a fan behind the plastic. This distributes the cold air throughout the fridge. What happens is this fan stops turning due to freezing up. A temp solution is to unplug the samsung for 6-12 hours to allow the ice to melt from around the fan. This is a known design fault. It is easy to dismantle the plastic cover and defrost the frozen fan with a hair dryer, this way the fridge will only be off for about an hour
