SOURCE: Fridge stopped cooling

We had the same problem today and it was because I had not closed the freezer completely a week ago and the evaporator coil in freezer was completely iced up. A blow dryer defrosted the coil quickly. It is best to empty the freezer first and shut fridge off. You need to defrost the coil enough so air will flow through the coil. To cool the fridge cold air is drawn from this coil by an evaporator fan located above this coil behind the removable cover at rear of freezer. IF you remove this cover and this fan is turning check for ice on coil. That is probably the problem. Evap. fan is about $100 - ouch. The other thing you can check is the fridge damper control at top rear of fridge. This failed on us 13 months after we bought fridge so no warrenty. Part was $44 plus service of $100. Now I fix this fridge myself. If you remove damper cover you can cycle thermostat and see it open and close. If it is not opening replace it. You can probably find the part cheaper that $44 at an apliance parts store.

SOURCE: Freezer and Fridge side not cooling

Sounds like your Defrost heater is burned up. It is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the lower cover. Look at the base of the condensor. Two screws hold the heater and two wire connectors. The heater is in a glass tube. Measure continuity from one end to the other, you should see a few ohms. if it is open, your heater is definitely burned. I got a good deal on a replacement heater on Ebay. I think it was $17 including shipping. The heater being bad will cause major frost buildup in the back of the freezer and stop the Ice maker from working and damage food. Be sure to thorougly dry the freezer compartment prior to putting it back in operation. If too much moisture is present, the new heater will evaporate the moisture into the Ice dispensoer motor and solenoid that swtiches from crushed to solid ice. Hope this helps. it has nothing to do with your problem, but please Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

SOURCE: LG fridge suddenly stopped cooling.

If the fan inside the freezer is running and the compressor behind the fridge is running and is hot to touch, you have a gas problem or the compressor is inefficient. This can only be confirmed by connecting refrigeration gauges to the gas system and should only be performed by a fridge tech.

The compressor may not have to be changed it could be the relay that is bad, not properly starting the compressor. The relay is attached to the compressor where the wires go to it. Remove it, Shake it, If it sounds like little rocks are inside (it rattles) than it is bad. Let me know what you find

I have a samsung RS21DCSV/X FRIDGE FREEZER.THE FREEZER WORKS PERFECTLY.BUT THE FRIDGE WILL ONLY COOL TO 13 DEGREES


Hi,

Initially, pls check the:
  • thermostat and its setting for the fridge part;
  • check if the fan is spinning to draw cold air from the freezer towards the fridge portion;
  • check if any food stuff is blocking the fan/vent;
  • on instances where a large number food stuff has just been placed inside, it may take some time for the temp to go down;
  • see if you have a turbo cool and enable it.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Samsung SRS583HDP fridge not cooling. Side by side


Most likely the thermostat in the fridge, especially if it read 5 degrees until you reset it. Possibly the compressor in the fridge side as this fridge has twin cooling, or the circulating fan in the back of the fridge is frozen, which is a common problem as well.
Easiest things to try is to see if the fan is frozen and check if the fridge cooling is actually working. Turn off the fridge, remove the shelves, remove the 4 screws that hold in the bottom cover and the 2 screws that hold the water tank in. Cover should then come out a few inches. Reach behind and unplug the 2 plugs and pull out the cover. If the cover doesnt come out easily it may be glued to the back of the fridge by ice. Leave for a couple of hours and gently prize it off. Check for ice around the fan and that the fan spins freely. You could try sitting the cover inside the fridge, plug it in turn it back on for a few minutes (be careful) and then open the door and quickly look / listen to see if the fan is still spinning (it stops when you open the door). Leave the fridge off for a while until the ice disappears off the coils. Turn back on for half an hour. The coils should be icy again. Anything else call Samsung. If the deal in your country is the same as mine the fridge has a 2 year warranty but in the fine print the sealed compressor unit has five years on parts only. You could get the unit replaced for labour costs only. Check your warranty card.

Refridgerator not cooling


That fan at the top has to remain on during cooling or you get the temps. you describe. To check this you need a voltage meter. Got to get to the fan and have to check if there is voltage 120v when it shuts off. If there is still voltage present when it shuts off then change the fan, if no volts when it shuts off then change the timer. need complete model cause this one may have an adapative timer.. i fixed one with the same problem last year.

AEG Santo fridge not cooling but freezer is working.


The compressor is obviously still good or the freezer wouldn't work.I'm sure you checked the settings,but turn the freezer all the way up (hot)after it is cool so the unit doesn't come on for the freezer,then turn the refrigerator controls all the way down to the coolest setting.listen for the compressor to start,and/or the fans to run.If the compressor starts,and no fan there may be a problem with the fan.(this is a general test I'm not familiar with your specific unit which may not have a fan,but most newer units do).If the compressor doesn't start after a short time the thermostat/control for the refrigerator section is broken,and needs replaced.

Warm refrigerator/freezer


very good chance it is the same problem or possibly a leak of refrigerant due to joint failing where compressor is joined to pipework

RS21 DCNS FRIDGE COOLING FAULT


There is a fan behind the plastic. This distributes the cold air throughout the fridge. What happens is this fan stops turning due to freezing up. A temp solution is to unplug the samsung for 6-12 hours to allow the ice to melt from around the fan. This is a known design fault. It is easy to dismantle the plastic cover and defrost the frozen fan with a hair dryer, this way the fridge will only be off for about an hour

Fridge is not 'freezing', Looks like fan stopped working


could be due to ice build up jamming the fan. take back panel off and check for ice. if ice present the defrost system has failed. also on some models, the fan stops when door is opened. check door switch is operating
