Samsung side-by-side refrig is not staying cold

I have a Samsung side-by-side refrigerator that is not staying cold. To bring the temperature down I have to unplug my unit for 10 minutes and then plug back in a push the power cool button. But after a few hours it goes back up to 65 degrees.

    My Samsung refrigerator model number is RS257BARB.

    Refrigerator cycles between 38 and 61 degrees. This is a known issue with these refrigerators, the part should be recalled/replaced before the issue causes all of us to lose hundreds of dollars worth of food. The tech said that the defrost mechanism is broken. That helps a lot.

Look for signs of frost build up on back freezer panel. If there is build up then it has a defrost problem. I haven't had much experience with samsung but I beleive it has a fuse in the defrost circuit on the evaporator and that may be the defrost problem.

I had the same problem on the same model and the problem was fixed when the repairman replaced both defrost sensors. he said the ellow tabbed one from samsung was faulty and samsung was issuing out the blck tabbed ones. hope this helps

Take everything out of the fridge, unscrew the back panel inside and reveal the cooling grid. If there is frost there, you need to replace the fuse quick before it damages the mother board, freezes your water line, freezes your water reservoir (plastic which will then crack and leak). But you're already seeing high temps, so you're with me - not under warranty and not cooling.

I have a Fridgidaire model FFUS2613LSO that beeps 3 times about every 30 minutes or so which has been happening for about 2 weeks.


Hi katelynn_did - When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. Typically, that is correct, to silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, since you have already tried unplugging the unit and issue persists, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board, faulty internal sealed system or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

Freezer is working fine but refrigerator side temp has dropped to 8 degrees


Hello - From what you have describes it sounds like the damper door might be open causing the temperature to be too cold. Use a mirror to look at damper door at the rear of compartment and use a hair dryer on damper door to deice for 5 to 10 minutes. Allow 24 hours and if the temperature is still too cold, then I would have a professional look at the damper door for replacement.

Kenmore Refrig Model 596.50699000, not getting cold as should. Frost forming on top row of coils only?????


Clean the condenser. Probably below refrig. Reset all settings to mid point and check to see if you have a restricted drain tube.

GE pss25ngnacc____refrigrato is to cold can't control tem


start by putting freezer control on half way on the numers. lets say it goes to ten set on five, do the same on refrig side . let run for 24 hrs. so it can stabalize. if it is ok in freezer and things are frozen and too cold in fridge side turn the refrig side to one smaller number. check again in 24 hrs. don't keep opening the door so that it can stabalize. if that doesnt work then it could be the cold control not senseing the temp of the refrig.

A COUPLE THINGS U SAY FREEZER IS FINE FRIDGE IS NOT? THE FAN NOISE MAY BE DUE TO ICE BUILD UP DUE TO A DEFECTIVE BAD DEFROST TERMINATOR. WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL BUILD ICE UP IN FREEZER AND FRIDGE? HINDER COLD AIR CIRCULATION. ANOTHER THING TO LOOK AT IS UR FREEZER AND FRIDGE THERMISTORS AND UR COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT. EVEN UR AIR FLOW DAMPER CONTROL VENT AND KNOB SETTINGS? ARE THEY TO FAR OPEN OR CLOSED? ARE U ABLE TO HEAR THE FAN AND COMPRESSOR RUNNING? ANY CLICKING SOUNDS?

Switch the power point off, if it has a switch.
Unplug it from the powerpoint.
Wait 10 minutes then put the plug back into the power point.

Switch the power point on, if it has a switch.
The Refrigerator should start up by itself,
after about 3 to 5 minutes.

Is the light ON, when you open the door?
If yes, you have electric power connected to the fridge.

Let me know if it worked.

Can't change temperature


If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem

My Samsung RB1855SW refridgerator not cooling


You may just be catching the unit during normal defrost cycles. Next time, allow the unit some time to complete it's needed task. If you allow it 30-minutes, it should restart on it's own. The cycles are necessary to keep the unit working properly. The cycles will be more frequent as the weather warms. If you allow the unit 30-minutes and it does not restart on it's own, then there could be a problem. You might consult the owners manual for more details.
