    Thank you. Can this be done at my home or does the fridge need to be taken to a repair shop?

    I have the rs2544sl model and the refrigerator side is getting warm. Temperature was at 34 deg and now the temperature has gone up to 53 deg. I have switched it to power cool but haven't noticed a change in temperature. What should I do?

    Hi there

    The blinking light does not go on all the time, I found that the lower part of fridge/freezer is cold but higher up it is not. The fridge was making a noise, when I checked the temps and found the difference between top and bottom. No light was indicating at that stage, when disconnecting the plug at the wall and then switching on, the light came on but most important the fridge does not work, lights come on but not the compressor/fans etc. It may take 5 mins to 2 hours before coming on again. So be careful. The idea behind the flashing light is to indicate which side of the fridge/freezer has a problem. If you press the power freeze and freezer temp together for 8/9 secs then you can hear compressor going off, that means its in demo mode (for display at retailers). Press together again for it to go back on. Will advise what fault is later on when machine is repaired. In SA the fridge is known as the RS22DCMS.

Fridge Temperature on control pannel is blinking

If the fridge is cool, the defrost timer has failed.
If the fridge is warm, the thermostat is usually the culprit.

I have a Bosch ksu 44 fridge/freezer which has stopped working - just a click,click,click from the back and the control board led's flash with each click (1.5second intervals) - is it the control...

Very common problem on that fridge and a easy fix: Replace the two big capacitors on the right side of the control PCB 1uF = 0,68uF 250V They lost their capacity causing bad uC supply and this strange LED blinking. Be aware that this blinking can be intermittent and the fridge appears to return to operation. But the uC suffer a lot of internal resets causing intermittent operation stops, low temperature and more not easy recognizable or strange mal functions. So, if You face that blinking normally the capacitors are gone. Some strange and intermittent behaviors of the fridge are also back routed to this PCB - Capacitor malfunction. So enjoy this 30min fix. The capacitors should not exceed US$2 in Your local electronic shop. If You don't want to spend the US$2 You can find the capacitors as a lucky guy in a old PC power supply.
For other more complex problems be aware that the controller board has a very nice and helpful self test option. You go in this mode holding the temperature select button of the refrigerator (not the freezer button) then switch the fridge on and stay on holding the temp button for more 10s. The self test sequence starts in the moment when You release the temp button.
LED 1: Checking sensors (Blinking=OK - Continues=NOK, something wrong)
LED 2: The Flap opens and close two times (Alarm LED shows the open and close position, so the led must go ON and OFF two times in accordance of the detected flap position from the internal reed contact. (So, no action on the Alarm LED no movement on the Flap or a defect Reed contact)
LED 3: Fan goes ON and OFF
LED 4: Drain Heater goes ON and OFF
LED 5: De- Dicer Heater goes ON and OFF
LED 6: Compressor goes ON and OFF
LED 7: End of test sequence - Initializing procedure of normal operation.
Every step takes 30s and the whole sequence take tree and a half minute. Be aware that the alarm LED is no malfunction indicator. It has only the indicator function for the sensors.
The fridge goes in the normal operation mode when he passed the sequence. No further actions necessary.
Be aware that every time when the fridge faced a total power lost he makes a short silent 30s check sequence. If he face a malfunction (Sensors or actuators) he doesn't start the compressor anyway to protect the fridge for further damage!!! So, this test sequence is a nice tool to check that the fridge is in the right conditions to start the working and even so to check the compressor function before maybe a unnecessary replacement .
With a second build in test option you can select and activate devices in the fridge. For this You hold the fast freeze button and switch the fridge on. After 10s release the button and you are in a manual test mode. With the temperature button select the component - Push the Fast freeze button to activate or deactivate. For example: Select LED6 (Compressor) with the temperature button, push the fast freeze button for ON and OFF. But I ask You to be careful on this test mode to avoid further damages. For example a blocked motor that You should release better by hand than blow up by a tricky fingertip. Enjoy this fix and feel free for Crtl C + Crtl V.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold

On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.

Blinking temperature control

You need to check the limit thermostat for the defrost in the back of the refrig section. I replace it with a standard bi-metal type from a Frigidaire to keep the problem from reoccuring.

the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)

Have a 2 year old SAMSUNG RS2545SH Side by Side

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
