    I have the Samsung RS2534 side by side and I read that in order to save energy the refrigerator temperature needs to be between 35 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit and the freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit so I tried to make the changes but it keeps moving back to 34 for the frig and -4 for the freezer which is too cold and uses more energy.

    How do I reset the temperature and get it to stay where I want it. I already tried holding down the child lock button and the temperature still moves back to 34 and 0.

    Anyone fixed this?? I have the same issue with the Kenmore Elite 596.7857 series French door style unit. If I could just reset to factory default at least then it would allow me to raise have a higher temp. It appears the button is broken.

For the Kenmore, keep pushing the button and it should cycle back to the top of the temperature range.

Control on door has flasing lights, water and ice has stopped working

this appears to be the door switch is either bad or disconnected and has triggered an alarm mode to the display. If the unit is cooling ok then you should remove and check the switch with a meter.

I can't get my AC to turn on. I'm house sittting, so I don't know the ropes of this AC system. The AC pad only has up and down buttons, but when I adjust them they just blink for a while and then go back...

Hi, on the thermostat there should be a door of flap that opens, pulls down to reveal more buttons such as Cool, heat, auto, off, on. Find these and they will either be switches or a touch pad. Turn it to cool and auto. You should be able to use the arrows to lower or raise the temperature at that time. It may say hold temp on it also. Set the temperature where you want it, lets say 75 and push hold temp. It should work for you now. Please let me know how it turns out or if you need more help.

Fridge side wont cool properly.

Check out this link below for a PDF manual on your item. Great information to have. Just copy and paste into your browser.

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) Mon - Sun : 9am - 9pm (EST).

'99 eddie bauer, cold air in the rear hot air in

you may just be low on freon. The rear will often work ok when low, but the front won't

The same compressor serves both front and rear systems. Check that first.

ALso, check to see if your front blend door rotates when you raise & lower the temperature.

I cannot get the oven to come on after I used the self cleaning.

Things to check- The screw in fuses, they are usually the 30 amp fuses for the oven. Next is the clock assembly, often these clocks will have the words "push for manual" or "turn for manual", this will put the clock back into the normal operating mode rather than the automatic mode. Next, you may have to remove the power and check for any burnt wires. If all checks ok, you will have to test the selector switch and oven control.
 Oven temp problems: Temperature is too low possible trouble makers, blown oven fuse, bake element is out, burnt wire, oven probe clips, oven temp control, oven temp sensor.
Temperature is too high in the oven possible trouble makers, oven temp control, oven relay ( if used ), oven probe clips, oven temp sensor, shorted wire.
These oven probe clips often rust off and the oven temp probe hangs down, or touches the oven wall giving false temperature readings to the oven control.

Control pad flashing temp and all lights continuously and ice door continually cycles open and closed

With the problems it is presenting, I would say it's very likely.
However it may take a bit of detective work to find which board is defective.

Check a part suppliers link Here for price comparison so you have some ideas.

Samsung french door fridge not working?

I had the same problem ("OF" on display and not working) and just found a fix and it worked (on SAMSUNG site).It was correctly stated that fridge is in "demo" mode. You need to push and hold POWER FREEZE and ENERGY SAVER buttons (not "Fridge button and the Power Cool buttons" as it was suggested above).

Fridge won't cool below 40 degrees F, freezer won't cool below 25 Kenmore refrigerator model 596.79279993, mfg # P1325019WB,serial 0009119112, 21.7 cubic ft, freezer on the bottom model. Condenser coils are totally clean and condenser fan is running. Condenser coils feel close to ambient temperature (not noticably warm). Evaporator coils (located in the rear of the freezer compartment behind a sheet metal cover) are frost free and the evap fan is running. Air is blowing from freezer into frig like it is suppose to. Return air passage from frig to freezer is clear. Compressor runs continuously, surface is about 10 degrees warmer then ambient, it sounds normal and slight hum can be felt. Lights in frig and freezer shut off when doors are closed - like they should. Defrost timer rotates as time passes. Today I emptied the contents and unplugged. I removed the back panel in the freezer compartment to inspect. The evaporator coils were totally frost free. Let the unit sit for six hours with doors open with a fan blowing inside - no condensate formed anywhere, nothing in the drip pan. I then turned it back on. The suction tube exiting the evaporator coil became frosty in 5 minutes, but the frost never spread more then a few inches after several hours of running. The temperature in the frig is now + 40 degrees and freezer is + 25F degrees even though both controls are set at maximum cold setting (7) and it has ran 8 hours with nothing in either compartment. Unit is 9 years old and has worked fine until two weeks ago when I noticed the food in the freezer was not frozen very solidly (temperature was 25 degrees F). Any thoughts? Freon low? Anything else I should check or test witha multimeter?
