Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

SAMSUNG SR608EV FRIDGE FREEZER. I TOOK THE DOORS OFF TO FIX A BROKEN HINGE. NOW THE DOOR-OPEN ALARM KEEPS SOUNDING AND THE LIGHT IS ON. I CAN HEAR THAT THE DOOR SWITCH ISN'T ALWAYS TRIGGERING THE RELAY BUT DON'T KNOW IF IT IS FAULT WITH THE SWITCH, RELAY OR WIRING. I HAVE TRIED THE WIRING PLUG AND WIGGLED ALL THE WIRES. REPEATED PRESSING OF THE SWITCH CAN RESET THE REALY BUT SOMETIMES THE ALARM GOES OFF A WHILE LATER, MAYBE AFTER 10 MINUTES OF WORKING CORRECTLY - REALLY ANNOYING WHEN IT SOUNDS ALL NIGHT. IT'S AN INTERMITTENT FAULT BUT MORE VERY FREQUENT. I WONDERED IF THE ALARM ALOSO HAD ANOTHER FUNCTION. HELP PLEASE!!!

I have a samsung side by side fridge freezer model SRS539HW, the alarm keeps beeping every minute to say the doors are open however they are closed. If I manually pust the door closer button it will...


Solved beeping problem.........Samsung SRS539HW . Have one of these and it is 6 years old. I had to replace the bottom hinge on the fridge side(right). Easy job but now constant beeping as if door is open, and light is intermittent. Found that there is considerable wear on the cable through top hinge of door and one of the wires from a magnetic reed switch in door had broken. I discovered this by shorting the two fine wires (white and pink/white) going to internals of fridge.No more beeping due to door opening and light now working correctly. Of course I no longer get a beep for a valid door open to long but cheaper than getting a refridgerator expert in.

Alarm no longer sounds when fridge door is open


Chances are that you will have to replace the buzzer. That part is available at Sears Direct. J

Refrigerator temperature can't be set to cold - sensor light shows 9C and keeps on beeping. Samsung model RB1855SL


I had this exact problem with my 4 yr old Samsung RB1855SL refrigerator. BTW, the temperature display doesn’t display higher than 9C, even when its warmer inside. The fan wasn’t turning on to circulate the cold air, although the cooling coils were still cooling. There was no excess ice build-up. The freezer was working fine.

I thought perhaps the fan was toast or the temperature sensor. Then I noticed the interior fridge light was not turning off when closing the door (but the freezer light was). BINGO—thig light switch was the problem. A small piece on the inside of the fridge side of the switch was broken. When the door was closed, the broken switch didn’t let the fridge know that the door was in fact closed, causing the door alarm to keep beeping. This must shut the fan down in order to save energy when regularly opening the door.

DIY fix: I removed the switch (until I could get a replacement) which is located to the left of the lower door hinge (right hand side). Gently, with a flat nose screw driver, I pried it out.

The light no longer turned on when opening either door but that was a small price to pay compared to the incessant beeping and rotten food. The part can’t be very expensive and I can replace it myself. The local appliance repair shop will order it for me.

No expensive “internal brain” needed to be replaced or an expensive repairman needed to be called. Good luck!
