Question about Samsung RB2155 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frige freezing solid

We had the same problem this year and the vents where clogged with ice, We unplugged and cleaned the entire frige and made sure there was no more ice in vents. We continued to have problem, So we would unplug frige at night and replug in morning, Than it appreared that problem stopped. The frige worked good for about a week, and now it is not keeping the frige or the freezer cold enough. The temp is 60 for frig and the freezed at 20. We bought the frige 2 years ago and have used it only about a year. We did not take the warrenty program and we can not afford a new frige. We are thinking of buying the tempature sensor and installing that. The interactive control the numbers do not display fully and did not when we got the frige, but were busy fixing condemned house and did not do anything about it.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Frige not cooling on bottom freezer frige


Check the air vents, from the freezer to fridge. Air travels through those vents. Sometimes, products get shoved under the vents, preventing air flow. It sounds like, the vents are clogged with something. I guess, the fan is working inside, of the freezer? Ice in the bottom, of the freezer pan, could be clogging the vents. You'll have to dig deeper. Good luck.

The coils in the. Back of the freezer keep freezing up! I use a hair dryer to thaw...freezes up again...what is wrong


The problem could be in the draining of defrosted ice. The drain may be clogged thus allowing water to back up. Next I would check the fan and make sure it is running. The last thing if that doesn't help is get a refrig specialist to check out evaporator and compressor. Now consider this, if it is much older than 10-12 years old , you may want to replace it. His sometimes is the beginning of the end.

Hello,

Very likely the vents are freezing due to the defrost drain is blocked so instead of the water from the defrost draining into the pan on the bottom as its supposed to its pooling in the freezer and freezing over the air vents.

Unless this is an older unit I would first check the filter and then the exhaust hose for clogs. If the hose has not been cleaned in several years then check that first, remember to do this to reduce fire hazzard. Also check the vent outside the house to see if it is clogged. If you are in colder climate areas and the vent is near bushes check to see if the ice is clogging the vent. (moisture freezes on bushes, if they are too close to the vent) If the "run" of exhaust pipe is long you can use the "blower" of your vacuum (if equiped) to clear the hose,. Note: wach for the mess if the hose is clogged. Good Luck.

Ice Maker won't work


Hello,

If your trying to save a service call you have your work cut out for you. The ice maker is a unit that sits by itself attached to the wall or part of the freezer wall.

There are many reasons why you do not get ice and I will list them.

1- Temp of freezer got too cold and has frozen the pipe that feeds the water to fill the icemaker.
check to see if the icemaker has any ice in the area that fills and makes the cubes.
If the pipe is clogged, very gently put a small tipped screw driver in the fill hose that sites over the ice making row in the ice maker. Be careful you do not push your screwdriver out the back of the refer.
Check to see the freezer temp is not too cold and is freezing that pipe. 0-3 degrees F is good.

2.- check to make sure your water feeding the fridge is on. There is an on off valve to allow the water to feed the icemaker when it needs to fill. This could be bad. there are reset proceedures for the fridge, but unplugging the entire frige for 1 minute and plugging it back in you can listen for the the valve to come on and see if it fills the ice maker resevoir.

3. If it fills and freezes the ice resevoir, then the sensor in the ice tray does not sense the frozen ice and will not cycle and kick cubes. At this point, unless you are super tech, you will need to replace the entire icemaker unit.

Hope this helps.

Leaking water from kenmore freezer to refrig below


its possible that the drain pan behind the back freezer wall is clogged or coverd with ice, sounds like when unit goes into defrost melt water leaks under sides of drain pan and into fridge. unplug and remove back freezer wall if drain is covered with ice defrost the ice, can be prevented by loosely coiling a piece of solid copper wire around element and into drain slightly radiant heat during defrost should keep drain fromicing over. if drain is just clogged wth debris clean drain and you should be good to go, hope this helps you.

My refrigerator freezes my food solid


There are vents that allow the cold air to flow from the freezer to the fridge. If those vents become clogged with ice or fail mechanically, they can become stuck open or closed. The temp adjustment should move the damper in the vents. But if they are frozen open, then the fridge will become too cold.

Freezer not cold enough to freeze items solid


Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.
