Most new fridges have a self defrost mode once or twice a day because the coils ice up if it collects alot of moisture. it shuts the compressor down and turns on a heat coil to defrost (which can take up to a half an hour). usually on a timer that is adjustable.

The fridge/freezer does not cool


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You really have not provided any information such as your model number, which is located in your fresh food section on the side wall.
Is anything running?
Have you unplugged the unit for ten minutes and tried to reboot the control board?

You are going to have to remove the back freezer wall to see what the problem is.

1.) Bad Defrost Heater - You unit goes through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours for about 20-30 minutes. This is where your unit shuts down with the exception of your light. Here all of your cooling coils will ice up and air flow will be blocked.

2.) Bad Cooling Fan - Have removed the back freezer cover, hold the door switch in - is the fan running?

3.) Restriction or Refrigerant Leak - Is there a block of ice in the upper right hand corner of the cooling (Evaporator) coil? If so you have a refrigerant leak or a obstruction. This repair is about $500.00 - $650.00.

4.) You may be locked into the Defrost Mode - I can not tell you where your defrost timer is based on the information provided.

5.) Bad Overload Relay - Is there a clicking noise at the compressor? This is a easy do it yourself repair.

Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator not cooling down frig or freezer


Is the compressor running? If so, feel the discharge line is the line cold? If not the unit is probably out of Freon, which means it will have a leak somewhere in the system.

What does code 0F mean? Freezer and Frig both quit working, can you help?


Sounds like it is in display mode. It will go into display mode by pressing the lighting and freezer buttons for 3 seconds. Hold both down for another 3-5 seconds and it will start cooling.

Hi.

There is need to test the defrost system and the electronics. If the fridge restarts in five minutes, then that is not enough to defrost. Problem may be electronic temperature control. Compressor start capacitor is also worth a look.

Let me know if you want more help on this.

Regards.

Pc code is saying there was a momentary power loss. Try resetting the control panel by depressing power frig and power freeze for more than 8 seconds. You may have to unplug the unit for 20 minutes if the compressor it very hot and not starting. You may have to depress power frig and power freeze to reset the units control panel to restart the compressor after the 20 min let the cooling system stabilize period.
If after all of this you still have issues with the lights or the unit is not working properly just repsond here and we will help you.

Thanks for Choosing FixYa. Kelly

Samsung RS2533SW freezer not cooling problem


I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.

Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.
