Same as the last post...If the refrigerator wont stay on the start relay may be defective. This may have been caused by the leaking door that overloaded the system. The relay is a small box mounted to the side of the compressor and provides power to the compressor start winding for a split second at start-up to help get the compressor get started. If its defective the compressor may run off and on (a lot) or not at all and the refrigerator will not get cold enough. Fairly easy to do and reasonable

There is a vibration noise on my Samsung #RF217ABBP. The vibration is loudest on back midway up. Anyone know what causes this vibration and is there a fix?


Try cleaning the condenser coil underneath the refrigerator. A dirty coil can make the compressor run extremely hard and vibrate. If this coil is clean, a compressor mount maybe loose or broken.

Why won't the unit stay on?


Fridge FAN CONTINUALLY STAYS ON OR SHUTS OFF WHEN DOOR IS OPENED:

NORMALLY WHEN THIS HAPPENS U EITHER HAVE A DOOR CONTINUALLY OPEN ISSUE OR A BAD DOOR SEAL LETTING AIR IN AND CAUSING FAN TO OVERWORK ITSELF. ANOTHER CAUSE CAN BE DIRTY COILS AND CONDENSER AND LASTLY NOT TO COMMON IS A SHORT IN THE FAN SYSTEM ITSELF. A MORE PROBABLE CAUSE COULD BE BAD THERMISTORS OR EVEN COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT ( WHEN THE THERMISTORS OR THERMOSTAT DO NOT GET/GIVE A PROPER READING, THEY CAN CAUSE THE FAN TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE AS THEY FAIL TO RECOGNIZE OR REGULATE THE PROPER TEMPERATURE.

Freezer is set on -2 degrees, actual temp in freezer is -20. What sensor is causing this problem


I suspect that you do not have a problem. . The standard operating temperature of a freezer is around -20 degrees CENTIGRADE (-2 Farenheit)

Your freezer has an option to display degrees C and degrees F, I suspect it is showing farenheit

I have taken a look at a copy of the manual, which can be found at:

http://www.manualowl.com/m/Samsung/RF217ABBP/Manual/142915

But for the life of me, I can't see how to change the display from C to F and back anywhere in the guide. If I am right, swapping the display back to Farenheit will solve the display issue.

If you are unable to change the display, you can try calling Samsung in arlington NJ on 1-800-726-7864.

Hope this helps. Please add a comment to this thread to let me know if the problem is solved or if you need more help

In my side by side samsung RS2534WW the rerigerator is warm


I read elsewhere that if you hold the power cool and power freeze buttons down for 12 seconds it will restart the system. I did it the other day (because we were having the same issues) and it has seemed to work for the last few weeks. Frige temp stays at 34F and freezer temp stays at -2F
