The refrigeration works fine for a few months and at a random interval will stop working. The ice melts and everything else gets warm. When unplugged then plugged back in, it works fine.

What is probably happening is you have ice buildup on your condensor(usaully located behind a panel inside freezer compartment) what happens is ice buildup over time will cause the condensor to stop cooling efficiently.One solution is to unplug frig and let ice melt off condensor, which you should do anyway unless it is a frost free model ,in which case you have a defrost problem. If this is the problem, you should check out the solution in one of my earlier threads posted 9/23 Hope this helps.

Sounds to me like you have a bad defrost timer. As the freezer is working correctly, it is building ice on the evaporator. It sounds like it does not go into defrost, thus freezing up the evap coil, and stopping the evap from cooling the surrounding air. Hope this helps

My refrigerator is not cooling the freezer works


We have this refrigerator and what you described is a chronic problem. (I hate this refrigerator!) Our repairman got tired of hearing from us so often and told us how to fix it ourselves! Take everything out of the freezer side and unplug it. Remove the white back part inside the freezer part. There are 2 screws at the top. The inside will be full of ice. Melt the ice with warm water. It makes a huge mess so get lots of towels. Once all the ice is melted you can put everything back and plug it in. It may take a day for it to get really cool again. My long term advice is to get a new refrigerator...

Samsung fridge RS2630, icing up on freezer and fridge not cooling


Could be the defrost element. If it does not work and melt the ice off of the evaporator, icing will continue and serve as an insulator. Freezer and refrigerator temps will suffer.
If you unplug the unit and let it defrost for a day and plug back in it will work fine till it freezes up again.

The auto defrost heat element is not working. When the ice buildup clogs the airflow the unit stops cooling. Once you unplug it and give it a chance to melt it works again. You need to have the defrost unit replaced.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.
