If this is a SxS , the overload/relay which plugs onto the compressor is probably bad if the compressor clicks off or does not run at all ,OR , the fan which cools the compressor (condensor fan ) is not working (bad motor ) , also make sure the coils are clean at the bottom in the front (condensor coils ) .

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

Intermittent colling in Samsung Window AC


so your reported figures show that the unit is operating as planned
the closer to ambient temp the shorter it runs for
the further away from ambient temp the longer it runs for
when the desired temp is reached , the compressor will stop but the fan will continue to run to circulate air past the thermostat so that it will switch back on when the room temp reaches too high temp
and that is why it is recommended to set the temp at 25 C as that is the most economical temp to run it at

I was moving from one house to another and later when i pluged my fridge it was lighting but not geting cold, two days later the light inside went off and still not getting cold.


If the compressor is hot then you have a compressor fault. If the compressor is cold, then the thermostst is faulty. Im taking it the fridge is a mechanical control.

Refrigerator top rack is warm. Temperature shows 65 degrees


if your freezer can make ice and the ice is dry, the problem is simply air flow into the refig section. A very common cause for a service call that wasnt needed for reefers is the settings. One setting OFF 1-10 usually, operates the compressor. The remaining setting will say , for colder freezer or similar, It opens a little flapper door between the freezer and the fridge section. If you set that one to max or coldest freezer it will actually starve out the fridge section for air ,and you get a cold freezer and warmer box! It happens everytime someone has the problem , its too warm! they peg both controls to coldest! The compressor will coll the freezer sufficiently even if set to 1 and the fridge should be cool too if the setting isnt pegged to coldest setting thus closing down fridge air and making the freezer colder which isnt ever required!

Our 10 year fridg seems to get very hot on the side...wondering what would cause this Model et18pkxaw00


The condensor coils run along the inner sides of the fridge . The heat you feel , is the heat being pulled out of the freezer which is the purpose of "freon" (to attract heat) . A freezer doesn't get cold , "freon" pulls the heat out , which is then cooled by the condensor fan ( fan which cools the compressor and coils ) . The more heat you feel , the colder the fridge should get ( to an extent ) . Also make sure the compressor fan is working .
