SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling properly

This site has a solution. And it's a well known problem with Samsung's refrigerators. Basically the evaporator behind the panels inside the fridge (not the freezer) is iced up. If you open the panel and let it thaw, it will fix the problem. However in my case, the same old problem comes back in 20 days. I'm trying to find a long lasting solution instead of putting a band-aid on the issue.

SOURCE: The digital display resets to 0 F for BOTH the

The OF OF display is the OFF setting, used for display purposes, so the light and controls light, but the refrigerator does not run while it is on display at a dealer. Try pushing in and holding the top two buttons on the left side of the display for about 5 seconds at the same time to get it out of the display mode. You should be able to set temps then.

Testimonial: "Thank you MNTECH, that seems to have worked. (I have it on power freeze and power cool now to quickly return to the proper temps) Background: We had family & friends over using it for ice & cold water and one person unfamiliar with the feature was tapping the buttons. She must have hit the sequence to send it into "display" mode as you correctly surmised. Will check the frig in 20min to see if it is getting cold again. But I think that was it. (The display does now read -4F and 34F which are the temps I typically have it set at)"

SOURCE: the refrigerator is not getting

If youre freezers making ice, and the ice remains dry, there is nothing wrong with the refrigeration cycle or components, the issue is merely insufficient airflow from the freezer into the refrigerators box.
The reefer box is 100% reliant upon the freezer for all of its cooling capacity the reefer section is a byproduct of the freezer, only the freezer has an evaporator coil, there is a small duct between the two sides, the freezer box and reefer box and a movable flapper door/damper that allows or disallows the freezers cold air to migrate into the refrigerators section.

This is a huge and common issue as evidenced by the numerous examples posted here saying, My freezers fine, but reefers warm!!! Impossible actually, unless the damper door that modulates the freezers airflow into the reefers box is closed down, not allowing enough freezer air into the reefers box.
Now when one sets a temp on a reefer the thermostat with the 1=10 and off setting that will cyle the unit off is the 1st place we go, and we raise the setting to cooler temp desired, or max it out most commonly as more is better?? NOT! Sure its fine to peg, max or increase the thermostats setting to the coldest seting, if you want a colder reefer box.
However where the counter intuitive labeling of the remaining dial or setting is where everyone messes up and actually exascerbates the warm reefer box isssue they discovered and attemptef to rectify by peggimg, maxing or at least raising the coldness desired .


The remaining setting has no electrical circuits and cycles no compressor or fan or anything except closing or opening the door that seperates the freezer box and reefers box

If you will notice the writing carefully it says cooler and warmer, or colder warmer etc.
The logical thing to do and waht 99% do when they suspect the reefers warm is raise both, or max both, which males for a colder freezer temp not the reefer! if the dampers ets at max or coldest is shut odff to the reefers box, allowing for a colder freezer as was stsated on the dial only thing is its for the wrong box!! If the freeezers ok and making ice that is dry the setting for airflows off or broken or damper doors stuck obstructed, I cant telll you how many times i billed $85 bucks to set the damper in the middle setting whrre all the dials should be anyways!!!

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.


The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/both-refrigerator-and-freezer-not.html ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My refrigerator does not cool properly. The freezer does not have ice built up and the fan is working, I can here it blowing when i open the freezer. The freezer almost works too well, it is at its lowest...


The lowest setting in the freezer compartment may be set to cold holding back cooling to the refrigerator. Try your settings at mid-point on both refrigerator and freezer settings.
