Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our refrigerator (Samsung) is only about 3-4 yrs. old. The refrigerator has been acting up and now the freezer isn't working. My husband has pulled the refrigerator out and defrosted behind the drawers where the ice is accumulating and it seems to work for a while. The freezer is now not cooling. He has unplugged it and then plugs it back in and it will work for a few hours, but then heats up to 40 or 50 degrees again.

Samsung side by side not as cold as it should be all fans sound like they are working what to look for fridge only 4 years old pulled out back cleaned coil pack with compressor please help


We had a similar problem. SAMSUNG said to not set the freezer to the top range and the fridge to top range. If you set the freezer to the top range there is not enough cold air funneled to the fridge. We usually set the freezer to about 3 dots and the fridge to 4 or 5. Try that and see if it helps

Fridge acts like compressor is not coming on - Maytag wide by side - seven yrs. old


Pull the refrig out and remove the back panel . You should see the compressor and the cooling fan ( condenser fan ) . If the fan isn't working , it needs to be replaced . If the compressor isn't running or starts then cuts off , then the box plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 3 wires going to it ( overload/relay ) needs to be replaced .

Refrigerator not cold


It sounds to me like you have a defrost problem. Look on the back wall in the freezer about 3/4 of the way down. Do you have any frost build up? If so, for me to be able to help you futher I will need the model number of the refrigerator located on the inside of the refrigerator...
