Question about Refrigerators
Adjust temperature and unplug and replug in frig.
Check the condensing coil under the back side of the refrigerator. If the condensing coil gets dirty, the refrigerant does not condense at the proper temperature and carries unshed heat with it back to the evaporator. This excess heat reduces the ability of the refrigerant to cool because it did not lose the correct amount in the condenser. The condensing coil and it associated fan is located behind the cardboard cover on back side of the refrigerator.
The condensing coil should be cleaned at least yearly. People with pets such as shedding cats and dogs may have to clean it more often.
On your temperature control, a setting of 5 for both freezer and fresh foods section is the normal value.
Another thing to check is the air flow blockage in the freezer for the evaporator and product stored there. If the fan inside of the evaporator can not circulate air then improper cooling will occur. Make sure there is space between shelves and between product so air can circulate.
Hope this helps

Look for signs of frost build up on back freezer panel. If there is build up then it has a defrost problem. I haven't had much experience with samsung but I beleive it has a fuse in the defrost circuit on the evaporator and that may be the defrost problem.

it is possible that it is the cooling regulator that is having a fault. The F&P customer service centre will / should be able to help diagnose this over the phone and give you a much better idea what u should do.

Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)

hi try out the following settings....
Check your temperature setting.
- Check if no ice present in the evaporator, try the defrosting
- Check vents if air is present if no then check your blower if running or icing evaporator.
- Check your vents if not obstructed with stocks, or the unit is not overloaded with stocks.
- Check if compressor is running continues, if not then you need a qualified technician.
i think after checking this it will work out for u.!!!

If this model is a frost free, you probably have a bad defrost system. That would make the unit freeze up and cold air can not get through to cool the unit properly.
