    Why would the refrigerator side get down to 34 degrees and not the freezer side?Shouldn't they both get to the same temp? If the the freon is leaking and/or the compressor isn't working would the refrigerator side still get down to 34 degrees? Had a "repair" guy come out and replaced the PCB main board and a coil still doesn't help he said the compressor and fan were running.

Try cleaning the condenser coils and also check if there is frost on the back of your refrigerator. Aslo make sure that the fan next to the compressor is running. For more information you can refer the service manual below.

    Then its the freon gas which is leaking from the coils or the compressor has gone bad. You'll need a proffessional to get the compressor and/or freon gas issue fixed as it requires a license to repair the compressor and gas leaks.

    Before proceeding for any repairs i'll suggest you to follow the service manual for your refrigerator and check the control board connections. For that you can view/download the service manual from this link---

Samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

Samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

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.
