Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

We have just bought a Samsung American fridge freezer around 1 week ago, we have only just stocked it with new food, we now have a smell coming from it when you open the fride door.

Smells like gone off, sour milk, we have checked all the food in the fridge and it is all still in date and doesn't smell. We did have the fridge slightly tilted back for the first week which we have now sorted, maybe this affected it. Smell seems to come from inside but we can't pin point it, it's very clean inside obviously because it's brand new!! Confused.

Sounds a bit funny if it is a new fridge!! Try washing it out with warm water and a big splash of vanilla essence, works wonders!

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

SOURCE: SAMSUNG RS20CCMS AMERICAN STYLE FRIDGE FREEZER

in the freezer section there is a 6 screws. unscrew them and remove the back panel. there will be 2 wires attached to the panels, remember where they go. you will see a metal evaporator which will be filled with ice. this is the problem. use a hairdryer to melt the ice. this is essential as you mustn't puncture the wall of the fridge with any sharp item. before replacing the panel ensure that everything is dry or ice will reform, and also ensure that the fan blades are turning properly or cold air will not be blown into the fridge.

Very bad smell coming from my Samsung refrigerator


most refrigerators have a small drainage hole leading from the inside rear of the compartment to an overflow container behind the unit, pull the unit away from the wall and check if the liquid in the container has become stagnant, if so simply clean it out and run a small amount of bleach down the hole to disinfect the tube.
hope this helps.

Last week our electricity was down for some time. Then Ice from freezer fall down from and fridge stop cooling


Hi

These units rely on air being transferred from the freezer to the fridge, so to make sure that the air ways are clear follow the steps below.
1. Empty the fridge and freezer and store the food elsewhere.
2. Switch off and unplug the unit and leave for 24 to 36 hours with the doors held slightly open. You may get quite a lot of water on the floor, you just need to mop it up, this is normal.
3. Wipe out the inside of both sides to leave them clean and dry.
4. Plug in and switch on, wait around 4 hours.
5. Re stock the unit it should be OK.

If there is still a problem please come back to me

Refridgerator and Freezer Not Cooling (2 year old fridge)


Some of these had problems with the door light switches between the doors. They also control the fans. The top and bottom both have fans in back. Try opening top door and holding door light switch in. Wait for a couple minutes to see if fan comes on. Try with freezer too. If not coming on may need switch.

Freezer not blowing air - bad smell in fridge


Your automatic defroster coil is open and needs to be replaced along with the fan in the freezer that blows the cold air around and also blows air into refrigerator.

Bad smell down below is food rotting in that section because it is not cold enough.
