Ice forming


  • One cause of this is the compressor is going bad or Freon is low. The freezer is no longer able to achieve the zero temperature requiring the compressor to run continually. The refrigerator because of the continues running begins to freeze up. Food in the refrigerator begins to freeze and the freezer is not as cold as it should. This results in a very expensive repair of replacement of the unit .
  • The defrost cycle is not working. Depending on the conditions the unit has a sensor that detects when the defrost cycle should initiate. If this fails to occur than ice builds up on the coils and air can no longer pass preventing the normal cooling process. Many models use a mechanical timer that stops. On some units the defrost cycle can be initiated via advancing the mechanical timer. This repair is a reasonable expense.
  • The third possibility is a door was left open and the unit iced up the cooling coils. Suggest in that case shut off the unit , remove the food and allow the unit to manually defrost, Restart and see if unit gets cold and defrost cycle is working.

No alarm sounding but red light is flashing?


Warning light (red)
If the temperature warning light (4) lights up, it
indicates that the temperature within the freezer has
reached a level where the safe food storage is no
longer ensured. When the freezer is first switched on, the warning light will stay on until the temperature has dropped to
a safe level for the storage of frozen food.

Temperature acoustic alarm
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off
an audible signal whenever the warning light comes
on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast-freezing (6).
The fast-freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.

Open door acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
sounds if the door is left open for more than 60
seconds. The signal will be stopped when the door is
closed again.

My Fridgidaire upright Gallery freezer is freezing my food but the appliance seems to be constantly running and the temperature control on the outside is reading 29 Celsius when it obviously isn't


Hi Susan Abboud - Modern freezers have increased storage capacity and keep more even temperature that may require the compressors to run longer but use less energy. Was the unit disconnected previously for any reason? If so, freezer requires a minimum of 4 hours to cold down completely. Confirm that the temperature control is not set too cold and that the door is not being open frequently. A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Keep in mind that there should also be at least 4-6 in of air space on all sides of the unit. If freezer is built in or has items stored on top that cover the unit, the can cause long run times, high temperature in the freezer and premature failure to the unit. Do not block the toe grille on the lower front of the unit. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the properly operation of your freezer, about 3 inches around the unit.

Put in garage now unit will not keep cold or freeze.


Since refrigerators were designed to run in your 72° kitchen, when you put a fridge outside, where its colder than normal operating REFRIGERATOR temperatures, i.e. 35-40°F, because that ambient temp is colder than fridge temp, the thermostat in the fridge section reads it as normal temperature, and does not turn unit on. it does not read what the freezer temp is. You have a couple of choices: bring the unit inside, heat your garage, or only use it for pop and beer in the summer. You can reply here or send me a question from my website: www.FixMyFridge.net

Freezer working but not colder enough to freeze.


It will usually take 24 hours for the fridge/freezer to adjust fully to the temperature settings.

It is also possible that the defrost timer cycle was going into or just coming out of the defrost cycle, thus it could have delayed the start of the cooling cycle, so give it a little time to determine if the freezer is working.

If, not freezing after 24 hours, let us know and we'll go from there.

It takes longer for an empty freezer to get and hold temperatures, so it is always a good idea to have the freezer loaded with bread (thirft store bargains are cheap) or jugs of 3/4 full water (water takes longer to freeze than bread thou).

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

Freezer keeps loosing its temperature and then freezes again


Sounds like a pc board problem. I have come across many units like these (although I don't know the Samsungs!) which have similar symptoms...it would seem like the freezer gets stuck in "defrost" mode and the ice would melt etc.etc.... In most cases replacing the electronics module solved the problem...in hindsight I have figured out that it was moisture on the pc board components that were to blame! So as a first resort I would locate the main electronics board and use a hairdryer to dry out thouroughly (even if it seems dry!) Also check values for temperature sensors....don't know what the specific values for the Samsung NTC's are, but normally they are in the low kOhm's.... Oshie
