    When you say it isn't working, What exactly is it not doing? Not running at all? Not cooling sufficiently?

Are you hearing any other devices like the evaporator fan or the compressor if not then the defrost timer might have gone bad.

Samsung Refregirator RS267LABP is 4 years old. Shows -4 on Freezer and 38 on Fridge but not cooling. All items inside are getting spoiled

38 on Fridge is not enough to cool refrigerator. Please check there is fan, (working ) to spread the cooling to refrigerator compartment. Switch off and restart, if any chock in system could release the gas circulation. If problem still, release gas and flush out system, vacuum and do gas charging. Thanks.

The sealed system looses gaz and refregirator is not cold

Most likley the part you need is the evaperator. and geting one if the company is no loger in operatoin will be like hitting the lottery. If you want the part, your best bet will be E-bay.

But I have a posible solution that you could try and I have had a 50% sucess rate with and its a sealer Part number 947kit called ((( ACR super seal )))

You can look it up and read on it. Some tech's don't like it and some do.

There is no garentee that this will work for you but is worth trying if you have no other option.

you will half to put a line tap on and put a vaccume on the system befor installing the sealer then the freon.

This is a use at your own risk. cost is $30.00 to $60.00 + Line tap and freon

will work with almost all freon.

Light and temperature indicator on refregirator do no operate. Wife heard a pop when she opened refrig. door.

If the refrig light AND the temp adjustment knob lights , went out , you need to replace the electronic board . Pt # W10135090 . This part is located behind the refrig , at the bottom left , with 2 screws , inside a white box . The board runs about $ 80.00 , and is easily replaceable .

Try to replace the relay and see if it works, relays are replaceable parts of the refrigerator that ca be found beside the motor compressor, just bring your old model so that you can have comparisson when you buy new one3

Kenmore Elite 52601300 freezer and refregirator are both down

It appears your compressor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Freezer and refregirator are both down

sounds like the defrost timer is malfunctining and leaving on the heaters that melt the ice. or it may have just came out of defrost. take and feel the lines where they go into the compressor in the back. watch out for the fan blade when doing this. one should be cold and one hot. if not then the compressor may not have enought refrigerant in it. anothe thjing to check is the coils are they clean. the oines that are underneath are what i'm talking about. if they are not oyou will have toi clean them. good luc and let me know if you need more advice.
