Cooler Compressor runs but cooler won't get cold?

One of the doors was left open overnight - closed door and temperature wouldn't drop below 70 degrees - unplugged it and emptied everything out and let it sit for a day - plugged back in, fans run and compressor kicks in but won't cool back down - is there a blown fuse or circuit or is the compressor fried??

    Thanks Danielle - I am hoping you it didn't burn out but my gut is telling me the same thing. Do you or anyone know how much it is to purchase a new compressor and approximate labor to get it fixed if this is the problem??

If the compressor kicks in then check the lines to see if they are cold. It is possible the compressor burnt out from leaving the door open. Purchase a sensor alarm to alert you if the door is left open.

SOURCE: evaporators fans will not come on in my coldtech!!

They work on a temperature switch, when the evaperator gets cold enough the switch closes and the fans will come on. They will also turn off during defrost so the product. Does not melt. If they never come on and the coil is icing up I would look at the switch as being faulty. It will be located on the piping on the side of the evaperator. Replace the switch and problems solved. Good luck

How do I get my new Samsung RF220 to be cooler in the refrigerator section? The temperature does not go below 52degrees F. It is set at the coldest setting.

Check for deformed rubber boot that runs entirely around edge of fridge door allowing cold air in fridge to leak out. 2nd possibility: Louvers in wall between freezer and fridge may be stuck in mostly closed position. Force them GENTLY to open. That will allow the cold air to pass normally from the freezer to the fridge to give you proper fridge temps. If these two easy cures don't work, here's hoping that Samsung owes you in-warranty service and parts on your "new" unit.

Im having a problem with my refrigerator. Freezer vent has cold air refrig does not. Kids left door open on refrig yesterday for a couple hours no definet time thats when problem started. any solutionns

Sometimes the refr still will not constantly blow cold air just because it is on and does not meet the required temperature that it's set at. In most cases, for a new refr to fully cool down, it takes 24 hrs. Let it sit for at least 6 hours with the doors closed, If it hasn't cooled off then chances are that there's a problem with the compressor. Whatever you do, don't turn up the colder knob just yet. Leave it where it was and see if it cools down, you don't want to overwork the compressor trying to reach that cooler temperature.

If after the refr sits and it still doesn't cool down, chances are you're going to have to call a repair service to come and check it out.

It is not holding temp. its range is 30 to 49 degrees in one hour

As a refrigerator, it should not go below about 34 degrees. If it is going down to 30, it may be freezing up on the coil. If you get a chance, do this: unplug the refrigerator and let it sit for 4 hours with the door open. If the coil is frozen it will defrost. You can feel the coils inside the box at the top back inside the unit. If you feel ice at any time it is an indication that it is getting too cold. Once the inside coils freeze over, the air can't flow through the coils and the unit will get warmer and warmer. When it is defrosted, set the thermostat just above the off setting. Let it run until the compressor shuts off. See what the temperature reads on a thermometer inside the cooler. If it is not cool enough move the thermostat one number colder and let it run an hour. Take your time, let it equalize before you change the thermostat. Also if the cooler is empty it is hard to set the thermostat because when you open the door all the cold air escapes and the temp will change rapidly. If it is full of cold food, opening the door won't change the temperature very quickly. Also check the radiator coils at the bottom of the cooler behind the grill. If it is clogged with dust or grease, the compressor may overheat and shut off prematurely.

Why is fridge temperature not dropping below 70?

Check the door seal by inserting a dollar bill between the seal and the unit then closing the door on the bill. The bill should not slip out easily when you attempt to pull it out with your hand. Check the seal in all corners and along all surfaces. Also, service the condenser coil by blowing compressed air through the coil IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION THE AIR NORMALLY FLOWS WHEN THE CONDENSER FAN IS RUNNING DURING OPERATION.

The door was not shut good, so i turned the wine cooler off and defrosted it overnight, but i still have E5 error code flashing.

e-5 means that the unit is 10 degrees warmer then setpoint. If you just close everything up and let it run the e5 should disappear when it gets within the temperature.
