    Have tilted the unit and cleaned surfaces with cloth, pushed upright and turned on, have waited 5 minutes and temp of fridge remains at 20minutes. Is there anything else I can do?

  • SKEK Aug 31, 2007

    Temp is now at 19oC, how long should it take to come down to the display temp.

  • SKEK Aug 31, 2007

    There is some noise coming from it, but not as loud as I recall it when it was working fine. Can the compressor be easyily replaced?

The first thing to do is clean out from under and behind the refrigerator thoroughly. In over half the cases like this, I've found it's just a matter of not enough air getting to the compressor, because of dust bunnies or other things blocking the airflow. You'll need to empty it and tilt it back to clean out from under it properly. But I will be surprised if that doesn't fix your problem.

    Give it about an hour. If it still doesn't change, then you may need to have your compressor replaced.

    Can you hear the fans running? If they're not running, that could be the problem too.

    I don't know exactly.

    We left ours overnight, and it was doing great by morning. So I'm not sure how long it took exactly, but it was some number of hours.

    You'll want to test it, and see if the compressor motor is bad first. I found detailed instructions here:
    http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance...

    Still, I'd give it a few hours first and see if the temperature goes down before I tried any of this. However, if it doesn't come down, and the motor tests okay, it may just need a new relay. The relay is that last part you remove before testing the motor.

Freezer in the gararge redfrigerator quits working when outside temps get real cold


hello. this is a common problem. The thermostat for a refrigerator/freezer is in the refrigerator part. Normally the refrigerator is kept at around 40 degrees. The compressor turns on as required to maintain this tempearture. The evaporator coils are concentrated in the freezer side, so that the freezer stays at around 0 degrees while the fridge side is held at 40.

If the ambient temp is around 25 degrees, the refrigerator compartment will get below the setpoint of 40 degrees, and gradually continue down towards 25 degrees. The compressor will not have to run at all to maintain this. In fact, the compressor is designed not to run, once the refrigerator compartment gets below the setpoint, for fear of freezing the contents of the fridge.

The lack of circulating refrigerant due to the non-running compressor means that the freezer compartment will gradually warm up to 25 degrees.

If the unit were just a freezer, it would work fine in the unheated garage. If it were just a refrigerator, it would not run in these conditions, and the contents would eventually freeze, but it is otherwise OK.

39 ltr engle fridge freezer wont shut off when at temp


hi,

the temp should be around 35-40 in the fresh side and below freezing in the freezer. If the probe is positioned wrong then it may not shut off. Does the probe need to be in the freezer compartment?If the freon level is wrong then the freezer may not get cold enough to shut down the control tstat. The low side pressure should be around 5 PSI.

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.

I've had my Samsung RS267 LASH side by side for almost 2 years now and the coils froze recently. The temperatures displayed - relating to the refirgerator side - bounce around when the coils freeze. My freezer thank goodness is still working properly. The repairman indicated that the heating element for the refrigerator coils was bad. Unfortunately he had to order the whole unit (coils, heating element, etc.) since he couldn't replace just the one part. Samsung takes their time sending the parts - we've been waiting for 10 days now. The Samsung warranty covers the compressor, evaporator, condensor, drier and connecting tube for 5 years parts and labor so we should becovered. You might be covered as well - depending on when you purchased your refrigerator. I did purchase a separate extended warranty from Lowes when I bought the refrigerator and I'm glad I did. My extended warranty included $250 in food spoilage covering our food loss due to the breakdown. Hope this helps......
