Question about Samsung Refrigerators

Open Question

My Samsung RS2544SL refrigerator is no longer cooling either the refrigerator or freezer compartments. The interior light is on, the there is only one segment blinking on the control panel, and the ice chute closure door is open. I've pulled the wall plug twice and reset it hoping the refrigerator might reset itself. Is there any reset function for this refrigerator or does the control panel have to be replaced to get the refrigerator working again? How difficult is replacing the control panel if that's the problem Thanks for your time! Dave

if the flap was open then truely excessive cold air is coming out/escape from the freezer causing no freezeing. you need to defrost your fridge.

Note also that frost build up increases time to freeze your food on the freezer. it also causes your fridge an increase in electricity consumption.

defrost your fridge for some time ti remove the frost build-up.

SOURCE: lights flashing all cooling appears normal ice maker flap continually opens and shuts no water buttons not operational

As I mentioned before my Maytag was doing the same thing, I called Maytag expecting a big fight but they were really nice about it.
This is a recall problem and even if your warrenty is up Maytag will repair it at NO COST to you.
They shiped me the HV board and sent a repairman who had it fixed in about 10 minutes with a newley designed HV board.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refrigerator model 795.77573600

My Kenmore Elite (Model 795.7755 3600), less than two years old, had the same problem. One morning I opened the doors to a hot fridge and burning plastic. The light housing was sizzling hot - much of the unit literally melting away. Another hour or two and it could have been much worse.

Called the 1-800 number listed in the fridge. After about 45 minutes of patient talking, I learned that Sears (or Kenmore) have issued what they refer to as a "flash warranty) on the light fixture kit (Kit # 6871JB1423N) which in effect, for this part only, extends the factory warranty from one year to three years. I may even be able to have a factory tech install the parts. Hope it works out.

Bottom line: if you have this fridge, be very careful and monitor closely. An pursue the part warranty!

I had the exact same problem with my LG refrigerator. You need to follow the instructions of the person who posted solution #8 (simply unplugging the refrigerator does not work or is a temporary fix). You need to empty the freezer and remove all the railings (including side). Then you will have full access to the inside back wall. Next you need to remove the screws to the inside back wall and gently remove the back wall being careful not to break the wires connected to the fans. Here you will find a massive amount of ice buildup which is causing the problem. Once you remove the back wall you will be able to remove the ice and everything shoud work. Note: All you need is a screw driver and time. I paid a lot of money for this refrigerator and it has been one problem after the other.

SOURCE: Maytag Ice20 refrigerator

Thanks, Solution #3, for the phone number ((800) 688-9900)! We, too, have the Ice2O refrigerator, and the HV Board started the disco light show last night. Followed instructions above to disable it, which temporarily solved the problem. Was on the phone with Maytag (Whirlpool?) this AM, and their initial response was that they wouldn't cover anything since we are out of warranty. I had to be extremely firm with my expectation that all parts and labor would be covered. Sent the rep back to her supervisor several times until they agreed to cover both. If you find yourself in a similar situation, don't give up until everything is covered. This is a design issue that should NOT be impacted by an expired warranty!

Water is no longer coming out of the water dispenser. The fridge is plumbed in and water is getting to the water filter and the ice maker but not coming out of the dispenser.

Why is my haier refridger not getting cold

There are alot of things that can cause no cooling...
a stuck tstat, will cause it to freeze up(electronic control)
a broken defrost timer will cause ice build up from no defrosting
out, or low on freon charge
inefficient compressor
door gaskets leaking
light switch not cutting off the light inside the cooling or freezing compartment
a bad fan motor(door) switch

I dont know how your unit works, but most only have one evaporator in entire unit..and its in the freezer compartment, and the cooling side gets it (coldnest) from the freezer compartment..with a door flap that alows cold air from the freezer to enter the cooler side.
Hope this helps..

Temperature on screen : for frezer39 for refrigerator cool 56 Samsung Refrigerator RS2544SL

Check to make sure evap fan is working, you should be able to open freezer, push in on door light switch, wait a second or three and see if fan comes on, you will be able to hear it if it does.

Check also that you don't have frost/ice build-up on back wall of freezer. If you do u have a defrost or cycle problem.

Refrigerator Compartment not cooling properly: freezer compartment working properly

Check the freezer section for frost build up, there is probably a problem with the defrost cycle. 1 of 3 things defrost bi metal would be the likely problem.The back panel in the freezer should be removed to see if there is too much frost.
