Question about Samsung RS265LABP Side by Side Refrigerator

Freezer works fine--Fridge Side Not Cooling Properly

The freezer side works fine, but the fridge side has risen in temp. from 38 degrees to 50-55 degrees. We have tried the troubleshooting tips from the manual--resetting the temp./power cool button, etc. We have also tried cleaning the coils.

Any advice before we call a repairman?

Thanks!

I am sending you a link below to download the manual for your model. There are too many Q&A to do this here and on this page. The manual has some self diagnostic test you can do yourself through the control panel. These are very good refrigerators and they are backed by Maytag. The only problem is they are complex. You can try to find answers and if you have questions I will need to be contacted by email because Fixya has not been sending out anyones responses lately. They know about the problem. Sea Breeze

I have a GE side by side Fridg.that is approx 7-8yrs old.The freezer side is working fine but the fridg. side is not cooling. staying at about 50 degrees just barely cool.. This seemed to happened...


Setting the cooling setting up all the way will not help at all.Make sure your freezer and refrigerator controls are about the same setting. Temp. settings for refrigerator should be between 38-42.degree at medium.. Freezer about 0 to -10.If it is a simple fix this will help.

The refrigerator side is not cooling.


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).
