Question about Samsung 26.0 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator, RS265LABP

1 Answer

Frig is getting colder and colder (below 25 degrees!)

I noticed day before yesterday things on top shelf of refrigerator were a bit frozen on top.....changed setting to be a bit warmer.....didn't help; yesterday things were MORE frozen, so I tested to see if the thing would even turn OFF, which it did....so I turned it back on but at a 3.5 setting (off is zero; coldest is 6)....and it's still getting worse....temperature is down around 24 degrees.....is it done for? Or is there a simple fix?

Yor model if the model RS265LABP is very complex. It is very possible that the senser that feels the temperature in the fresh food section is defective. If you would like the manual to put the refrigerator into self diagnostics let me know. The diagnostics test for your model is done at the control panel and will tell you the problem. It will tell you the senser that is not working properly. But an easy fix for most people the test is simple but to go and repair the problem the answer is no easy fix. Sorry for the answer, Sea Breeze

Frigidaire frig. model#FGHC2331PF7 is dripping onto top shelf and the filter has ice cycles and what temp should freezer and frig be


If it's brand new and leaking, call the place you bought it from and have them fix it. As for the temp settings; there is a center default in the freezer and you should start there, the fridge also has a default which should be OK. If you need it colder turn it up in small increments and give it a day before you make any additional adjustments. The "cold" in a fridge or freezer also depends on how much stuff you have in the unit, and how often you have the door open.

Good day,
No real solution except to put it in a warmer location.
Understand, it is a refrigerator with the freezer just going along for the ride.
All manufacturers state the machine must be in an area that is no colder than 55 degrees.
The problem you have, is once the refrigerator section reaches temperature 34 to 39 degrees, it shuts the whole machine off. If the air temp surrounding the machine is near or approaching that temp, it shuts off, and may be off most of the day,
Domestic refrigerators are engineered to operate in area comfortable to people. Normally 70 to 95 degrees. Below that it will begin to unbalance.

Thank for using FixYa

Everything in my frig is frozen


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .. I don't know what he was doing with the putty unless he was stopping up the vent which won't work because you have to have the air circulation for the fridge section to work. The fridge temp control may be the problem.

u may have a defrost problem it would be worth paying for the service call if something simple like defrost or a fan would still be more than 200 but worth it

Fridge and freezer warm at top, colder but not normal on lower shelves


How old is this frig? If it is older that 12-15 years, get a new one. Make sure there is not blockage to keep the air from circulating properly. The vent from the freezer to the cooler should also be free from blockage as well.
