There are several things that could cause this issue. If you have a condenser fan underneath the fridg that has stopped running due to poor lubrication, maybe debris blocking the fan blades or a dirty condenser especially if you have pets. You can clean the **** from under the fridg (remove the grill on the front and vacuum out) or if the fan is not running with the compressor as it should repair or replace it the fan motor. Also a worn out door gasket can cause excess run time.

Fan always runs, speed doesnt change (low/high), setting humidity level doesnt impact...is this a control board or circuit board issue?


Verify the humidity reading with another device. Perhaps the humidity sensor is dirty or bad.

Another possibility is the switching device that runs the compressor and fan is shorted. If it's a mechanical relay, the contacts may have welded together, or if it's a solid-state relay, it's got a punch-through or meltdown in a device junction. My guess is it's a mechanical relay since you mention it used to click on and off and now you don't hear that. The relay may be on the control board, or it may be mounted separately - I don't have a photo or diagram of the inside of your model available.

Dishwasher won't stop running


Question what do you mean not stop running. Is it starting the pump and then shutting down like a leak error then restarting or always on. If always on then you may have a bad main board with a stuck relay. I would call Samsung with this issue. But if it is starts stops then starts you may have a leak then either take unit out and find leaking problem or like I said before call 1800 Samsung for there products.

Engine stops randomly


sounds you have a vacuum leak. Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as replacement as non-genuine are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU

Fan seems to always be running and when it gets hot it starts making a screeching vacuum like sound


Try blowing out with canned air. It really helps. My PC sounds like engine if I don' t blow out every 6 months or so.

Machine runs and mixes. Compressor seems to run but mix will not thicken. Seems like mix is not getting cold enough. A water cooled unit.. Tried to bypass water intake switch so water was always...


if its a water cooled unit when the compressor is running water should be running thru the valve, if it isn't be sure you have the water correctly hooked up and its cold water, if it is and still no water you have a bad valve

Compressor appears to kick in, runs for short time


It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.

The machine struggles to move grounds through after brewing. The tray seems to be locked in.


Your brew unit is probably dirty and needs cleaning. However, it won`t always help just running the cleaning program. Try to clean out all the used ground that is stuck inside the brew unit; use your fingers or a toothbrush maybe. Then run the cleaning program. It may be smart to run the program once or twice after this too, but you don`t have to use the tablet everytime.

It is the grounds blade that holds the used ground container so you can`t get it out. This means that the brew unit stops in a wrong position, and don`t get back to grinding position before timeout. If you shut down the machine for a few hours, it usually moves back during startup. But of course; this indicates that you need to clean up inside...

Microwaves


I can help solve this fiasco , opening the unit while its running to stop it is not good to do because it will wear the door switches due to the load of power the unit uses while running the switches are not made to cycle the unit.
2nd there is radiation in the unit and around the unit while running so you should not reach in inside the unit immediately when stopped , give it a few seconds. Some commercial microwaves have an un-safe level of radiation 20+ feet away from the unit.
Most likely why they always get the order wrong.
Hope this helps.
