Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice appears to be building up inside behind the back wall bulging it outward accompanied by loud popping and cracking sounds. All the drawers have had to be removed for the door to even shut. You can plainly see the deformation in the back wall.

Kenmore model 795.71022.010 water builds up in the bottom of the freezer every two weeks I have to defrost the unit and remove the ice build up if I dont the door wont close


The fan unit behind the wall inside the freezer may have frozen over.
Even though you see no ice inside the shell of the freezer, it can still have blocks of ice behind the back wall.
So remove the 3-4 screws holding the back wall, remove it and check on the ice there.
Make sure it is completely defrosted or ice melted before reconnecting. Leave the wall off while you connect it to make sure the small fan is kicking in.
IF the fan does not kick in. you can get a replacement for $15-$20 at any fridge parts supply house. It is easy to disconnect and reconnect.

I have a frigidaire model fghb2844lpe that is full of moisture on the rear of fridge. Why?


I appreciate your post, gayannecox!

I see that your Frigidaire refrigerator is building condensation and appearing to get rusty. It sounds like a possible water leak within the cabinet of your refrigerator. I would recommend having a professional technician come out and review your refrigerator to provide an accurate diagnosis. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Inside rear panel bulging


Unplug the unit and take out all the drawers and remove the back (behind the drawers) panel carefully. (This back panel has foamy thermal insulation behind it and this will be probably be enmeshed with ice - you may have to wait awhile for this ice to melt before you can remove the panel, even after you have unscrewed it.
When you have got the back panel off, you will see a large solid block of ice, probably halfway up the cooling coils, right down to the bottom of the exposed space. You have to melt all this ice (I used a hair dryer to blow warm air onto the ice (have towels and a bucket ready to mop up the melted water, otherwise it will run over the floor. When you have melted all this ice, you will see a drain hole at the bottom of the exposed space. This will have ice in it and it must be cleared.
Then replace the back panel and all should be OK.
The panel bulges because ice/water is accumulating behind the panel, water, when it freezes, expands, forcing the panel forwards.
I reckon it's a Hotpoint Design fault. What is supposed to happen is that during the heating cycle, melted ice drops down from the cooling coils and down the drain hole onto a plate over the compressor unit, where it evaporates. BUT, during the cooling cycle, a fan circulates cold air from the cooling coils, through the entire unit, which includes the chamber behind the panel that is below the coils. Thus this chamber gets cold (-18 deg.C) so that water dripping down during the heating cycle is frozen before it has a chance to fall down the drain hole.
I now defrost in this manner every six months or so. Sadly, very sadly, Hotpoint, like other white goods manufacturers (Baxi Potterton boilers for instance) do not reply to my enquiries.
Hope this helps.

Not keeping food cold and popping noise


There is ice buildup in an area that you cannot see.

The interior wall may "bulge" a little if the ice builds up a lot.

1. You may have the cooling dial set too high (use lower numbers)
2. The blower vent into the fridge or freezer maybe blocked (move items away from vents inside)
3. Defrost the fridge. The water pan underneath the refrigerator may overflow.

If there is no "defrost" setting, unplug for an hour (don't open refrigerator or freezer during defrost)

Plug back in, food will not spoil.

Avanti Beverage Cooler BCA5105SG running very loud.


Inside the cooler is the evaporator fan usually right in the middle behind a cover. As it slows down you have less circulation and ice forms quicker and cooling is diminished. Sounds like it is going out.

GE French Door 22 cu ft (PFSW2MIXSS). Loud buzzing from behind the freezer. Ceased cooling.


The model number you post appears to be incorrect.
The buzzing was from the evaporator fan blade hitting on some ice build up. Getting to it on a bottom freezer refrig is a bit of a pain in the back side. If your model has a pull out freezer drawer, that has to be removed, the icemaker removed, one side of the drawer supports from the freezer wall, all to allow you to remove the back wall of the freezer to get to the fan. You may be able to just thaw out the fan and surrounding area then which will get your refrig cooling again, if the ice was just around the fan area. On the pain in the but repair scale of 1 - 10, this one rates at least a 7.

Bosch stand alone freezer Intelligent 32 - how to defrost


Hi
I have the same refrigerator and found the manual;
"The refrigerator compartment was programmed to defrost automatically meaning you do not have to constantly clean and dry it. Copy from the manual"
Also have a look in the back for the drain outlet - very small. If that is clogged up it also cause water on the inside.
