SOURCE: fridge doesn't get cold enough

you have either a Defrost heater / a defrost timer/ or a defrost bi-metal that is bad. if you post your model # i can look it up and show you how to set it into defrost to see if the heaters are ok
Since you replaced the timer already that leaves two things you need to check set it into defrost if you know how and remove the panel in the back wall of the freezer you should see the heater(s) are on if not check pwr 120vac at the heaters if 0 volts the bi-metal is bad

Defrost the unit for two days with the doors open...I know you're going to lose your contents. You may have ice on the coils internally. Next make sure you've cleaned the external coils under the unit. Leaving liquids open inside the unit or setting it colder than required will both cause issues like the ones you've got. Also, be sure all air vents inside the unit are unblocked and the door closes tightly all around.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
I attempted to locate an answer to resolve the issue for you, but you have not provided me with enough information to access my service database.
Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Once you access the site you will be able to navigate numerous pages of information on your product. You will need to enter your model number to access your product information.


Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint. I will post the most common solutions to your complaint. For more specific information please refer to the tip and/or link provided.

First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting. If that doesn't work, read on.

Second, check to see if there is power getting to the refrigerator. To do that, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the refrigerator is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If the fuses or breakers aren't the problem, contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it still seems to be stopped, there may be a problem in one or more of these:

  • Wiring

  • Thermostat

  • Defrost timer

  • Compressor

  • Overload and/or relay

Unfortunately, we can't describe all of the possible problems and repair solutions here. If you are unable to troubleshoot the problem from here, you may need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

SOURCE: fridge and freezer not staying cold but lights and fan working

the problem is going to more then likely in the main control board which is on the back of the refrigerator in a little compartment this board is bad about going out if you have power surges or outages

SOURCE: freezer and fridge don't cool at all. everything else works fine

Heya,
There is a fault with samsung fridges that when it goes on defrost it will not start the compressor or the fans again. If you turn on the power the fridge should run for a couple of hours and then stop if so you will need to get a tech out to order a samsung yellow sensor and a fridge defrost isolation sensor. If the fridge does not work at all if you would like i will talk you a couple of little checks before calling someone out.

Hope this helps

Bought Bush fridge freezer 13 months ago. fridge broke down twice with same problem. defrost timer. Can i complain to bush


you can ask again for it to be looked at repaired
even if it is out of warranty
fixed twice during warranty period (for free i hope )

if point of sale will not refund or repair or replace fridge freezer

you will need lots of paper work receipts of repairs and calls and conversations made etc etc
then you have to take the company /manufacturer of the bush fridge freezer to small claims court and try to get money back

Just got a bush combi fridge freezer the chilled compartment is frozen,and the milk froze in the door turned it low but still happened we only got this yesterday.


Yes more than likely u have a bad defrost terminator in the freezer , its connected to the evaporator coils its a small round like object with 2 wires going into it. the other source may be the defrost timer itself. U can check it by locating it in ur fridge usually top middle area. under it u will see a tiny hole or slot, if u stick a small screwdriver into the slot and turn clockwise slowly till u hear a click 1 click not 2 if its stuck out of defrost, it will not go into defrost? the second click should take it out of defrost cycle. Another thing which may be wrong is ur heating element itself has gone bad u can also check it with a multi meter for continuity.

Fridge freezer warm 2touch on outside and water lying in bottom of fride


1. Defrost timer failed, check to see if it is running at all over a half hour. If not, look into the defrost timer. This also drives a heater around the door.

2. Door not closing fully.

My fridge freezer is less than 2 years old and the freezer is not working could it still be under warrenty?


If your fridge is self defrosting then you probably have a stuck defrost timer motor/switch. I can usually be found on the bottom of the front ourside of the fridge. You can try to advance it with a screw driver until you hear a click and once you do hear that click the fan and the compressor should turn on. Ifthey do then you will need to have the defrost timer replaced. After two years I doubt it is in warrenty. The only things that should be in warrenty is the compressor and all of the related tubing in the hermedically sealed unit..

I have had this problem many times and since I am a retierd HVAC engineer I was able to fix these defrost timers, mainly the actual motors that had dried bushings. You would first have to take the timer apart and get into those bushings and use a small amount of a good light oil like 3 in 1 oli. That usually does the trick.

Hope this helped you. If it did then would you please let me know, I would be courious to know.

Good luck,

Marty

Freezer Icing Up


Try contacting the hotline again and ask them if the freezer has a frost sensor on it. If it does, the sensor is not kicking the thermostat to allow for the unit to defrost.
