Re: Samsung RS2630H - Fridge temperature will not go...
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.

If the door temp is reading low then it will not cool as that is the temperature the fridge thinks it is at (regardless of the real temperature). Try setting the door temp lower and see if there is still a 14 degree difference between the 2 readings. If it does cool down further and the difference is the same then I would suspect the thermostat.
the freezer should be arond -20 degrees celcius and the fridge aroud 5 degrees celcius
There could be a problem with air flow
the fan in the freezer has probably stopped or the air flow into the fridge is probably blocked
You could have a defrost problem. this would allow ice to build up in the freezer blocking off ai flow.
A technician can help you with that
If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.
Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.
Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.
Try this: Temperature Adjustment • After 24 hours, adjust the controls as needed. Adjust temperature gradually: push the button in small increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize. • Press the button(Freezer Temp or Fridge Temp) repeatedly until the desired set temper. • For lower temperature, press the button(Freezer Temp or Fridge Temp) towards coldest. • For higher temperature, press the button(Freezer Temp or Fridge Temp) towards cold.
If this does not work for you let me know or you can contact Samsung support at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864)

these side by sides use an auger motor in the fridge to open and close according to the temp demand. If its eratic, either the auger is icing up at the outlet possibly due to product being to close to the outlet. On occation i have had to replace them due to being faulty.(to check, adjust the temp. and notice if there is any change on the auger.)
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......
