Question about Samsung RF24FSEDBSR 24 cu. ft. Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator with 5 Spill Proof Glass Shelves, Twin Cooling Plus System, FlexZone Drawer, High Efficiency LED Lighting and External Ice/Water Dispenser
I just received this fridge 2 weeks ago, March 2015. I have been monitoring the temps inside since the beginning. I have three Taylor fridge temp gauges that I bought together because they all were reading the same temp in the same place. So I am reasonably sure they are calibrated. The reason I got the gauges to monitor temps is the first one of these fridges I got was not cooling properly...it was way off...wouldn't even make ice in the freezer compartment...I sent it back to best buy. So I wanted to make sure that my fridge was working properly from day one...cause if it isn't i am sending this one back too. Mostly I am concerned with the fridge temp. I have it set on 34f because I can't seem to get it to go below 40f anywhere in the compartment I am measuring. The temperature is mostly just above 40f but have seen it as high as 48f. It swings around in this range. Doesn't seem to matter if energy saver is on or off. I have seen the temp go as low as 38. The flex zone drawer is set to 29f and it has met that target but it also swings up in the 30s. The freezer is set at -1 f and it has also met that target but I have seen it as high as 8f. It ranges between these two temps over time. I have read on the Internet that you can recalibrate the temperature so you can get the display temp to better reflect the actual inside temps. The instructions that were given were unclear to me, especially since the display I have combines the power cool and frige temp functions you are suppose to hold these two buttons simultaneously to get to the recalibration display. Does anyone know how to do a recalibration on my fridge?

ALMOST DEFINATELY YOU WILL HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED AUGER(MOTOR)CONTROLLING THE AMOUNT OF CHILL ENTERING THE FRIDGE COMPARTMENT. IF YOU SET THE FRIDGE TO MINIMUM AND LISTEN CAREFULLY, THERE SHOULD BE A SOUND INDICATING THE AUGER IS WORKING.( OPENING AND CLOSING THE FLAP). SET TEMP. TO MAX AND LISTEN. IF NOTHING, IT COULS BE A DEFECTIVE MOTOR OR FAULTY THERMISTOR(TEMP. PROBE).

SOURCE: freezer temp too high
Air must circulate in the freezer when working properly. I am guessing the recirculating vent in the freezer may be blocked which would not bring warmer air back to the coil to be cooled. As for the door, I theorize there may be too much negative pressure which pulls the door in while you were pulling out ... don't have solution yet.

SOURCE: SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING
the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)

I've had my Samsung RS267 LASH side by side for almost 2 years now and the coils froze recently. The temperatures displayed - relating to the refirgerator side - bounce around when the coils freeze. My freezer thank goodness is still working properly. The repairman indicated that the heating element for the refrigerator coils was bad. Unfortunately he had to order the whole unit (coils, heating element, etc.) since he couldn't replace just the one part. Samsung takes their time sending the parts - we've been waiting for 10 days now. The Samsung warranty covers the compressor, evaporator, condensor, drier and connecting tube for 5 years parts and labor so we should becovered. You might be covered as well - depending on when you purchased your refrigerator. I did purchase a separate extended warranty from Lowes when I bought the refrigerator and I'm glad I did. My extended warranty included $250 in food spoilage covering our food loss due to the breakdown. Hope this helps......
