Hello Rukhsar Azmi,

If your trouble is... "Not Defrosting" you will doubtless
get a USEFUL answer if you give a model number.

If you are seeing an un-yeilding mass of FROST
in the rear of your FREEZER AREA... your refrigerator
is likely warm.. and FREEZER is doing a terrible job.

You should remove all your perishables
(evaluate for disposal or careful consumption).

Use fans (but no heaters) to blow into the
open drawers & doors.

Be prepared for a LOT OF WATER
(supervised activity
(towels & wet vacuum is recommended).

>> DEFROSTING a couple of (3) days is ideal.

A defrost circuit is not terribly difficult to fix...
but PRESENTLY without any information...
It is EXTREMELY difficult to point you in the
right direction.

Defrost is typically an AUTOMATIC function...
Controlled by either a DEFROST TIMER or
a POWER CONTROL BOARD. Again... typically the most expensive (but easiest to change).

1). Defrost TIMER or Defrost PC Board

There are only TWO other parts... (assuming no one has rearranged your wiring):

2). Defrost HEATER Element (Test for continuity).
and
3). Defrost thermostat (opens at room temperature).

Helpful hint:
Take pictures & tag wires BEFORE removing anything.

It sounds like your keypad (membrane switch) is failing.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting. You can use it to test for a bad keypad.

Hi

If it is a manual defrost fridge with a push button defrost then yes the button stays in until it has finished the defrost cycle.

But as no model & make have been provided this is just a in principle answer.

How do you manually defrost a Samsung RF261 refrigerator and how long should the defrost cycle last.


Defrost cycles in normal conditions can last from five (5) to 25 (25) minutes, depending on variables like humidity, runs times and how often the door is opened. Defrosting the unit manually as you've done is merely a short term solution as it recurs again over time. You should find out why it is not working automatically, as intended. This could be a problem with poor air flow (fan, blower or restricted air), a bad control, or even loose connections. Forcing defrost without correcting the underlying issue will not eliminate the problem.

Hi Dan, you can do a forced defrost on this unit.the main control board has a little black button that if pressed twice will activate the forced defrost. It will only defrost for 5 min and only if the defrost thermostat and fuse are closed. Hope this helps.

On the refer side we are getting a temp. reading of 67 degrees at the top as you go down it gets cooler to were in the crispers it is 33 degrees, have changed the thermistor and the evap fan motor what...


It could be a problem with the air damper but.... I doubt it.

Down load this manual and go to page 29 of the pdf file,
http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/SAM0074.pdf

You will see this:

Self-Diagnostics in the normal operation

2-1) To select this function, press Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons simultaneously for 8 seconds with an audible

tone.

2-2) In the self diagnostic mode, only corresponding LED segments will be illuminated (see the check list on the next

page)
2-3) After a 30 second illumination of error signal, the system will return to the normal operation.

Note the position of the LED in the temp windows and the side that it appears on. Then see the Control panel LED legend along with the corresponding position legend listed below listed on page 30 for interpetation. This should tell you what has failed.
Make sure to read the Details of each failure on page 30 also.

This is the legend.

Evaporator coils ice up after a few days and the refrigerator comparment only stops cooling. The unit is 2 years old. When removing the backing from the inside of the fridge and after thawing out the coil...


I have some information on your model and that would involve forced defrost by the service manual page 28 at bottom. How old is your Samsung? Forced Operation Function (Pull-down / Refrigerator Defrost / Refrigerator . Freezer-Defrost / Cancellation)
● This function enables a pull-down mode, a defrost mode for the refrigerator only, a defrost mode for the freezer and the
refrigerator at the same time, and a cancellation of this function.
● Press Power Freeze and Fridge Temp. buttons for 8 seconds simultaneously to get in the ready mode for a forced
operation.
● The display panel will return to normal after 20 seconds in the ready mode.
● At the ready mode, press any button(except Ice Type and Child Lock) once to start a pull-down operation, twice for a
defrost cycle for the refrigerator, three times for a defrost cycle for the freezer and the refrigerator, and finally four times
for cancellation of this function.
● Another way to cancel this function is to simply plug out and in the power cord.
1) Pull-down
1-1) At the ready mode, press any button once then the buzzer will beep (ON for 1/2 second and OFF for 1/2 second)
until this mode is cancelled.
1-2) At this pull-down mode, the compressor will start immediately (No 5 minute delay) and if the system is in the
defrost cycle, it will be cancelled right away.
note) If this pull-down mode begins right after the compressor was off, the compressor may not start to run due to an
overload condition.
1-3) At this mode, the compressor and freezer fan will operate continuously for 24 hours and the refrigerator fan will be
on and off according to the set temperature(34℉)
1-4) After 24 hour operation, the system will be cycled at -14℉ for the freezer and 34℉ for the refrigerator.
1-5) In order to cancel this mode at any time, select the next mode on the ready mode or power off the system.
2) Refrigerator Defrost / Refrigerator . Freezer-Defrost operation
2-1) At the pull-down mode, press any button again on the ready mode to begin the defrost cycle for the refrigerator.
2-2) The beep sound continues for 3 second at the beginning, then ON for 3/4 seconds and OFF for 1/4 second until
this mode cease.
2-3) After this operation, the system will come back to normal operation.
2-4) At this mode, press any button again on the ready mode to operate the defrost cycles for both compartments.
2-5) The beep sound continues for 3 seconds at that time, then ON for 1/4 second and OFF for 3/4 seconds until the
defrost operation cease.
3) Cancellation
3-1) At the R,F-Defrost mode, press ant button again on the ready mode to return to a normal operation.
3-2) Simply unplug the power cord, then plug it again to return to a normal operation.
Press both button for 8seconds at the same time Send maual in one moment, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Leaks water inside the refrigirator part. It ices and eventually leaks to the bottom part! We keep the fridge at a normal temperature! 38degrees. please help! is there a recall to solve the problem!


The unit has an automatic defrost system that defrosts the fridge automatically when frost develops or when certain conditions are met.
  1. Defrosting starts when the compressor running time reaches 4 hours after a power outage or after the unit is turned on for the first time.
  2. Defrosting starts each time the compressor running time reaches 7 hours.
  3. Defrosting stops if the sensor temperature reaches 46.4°F(8°C) or more. If the sensor doesn’t reach 46.4°F(8°C) in
    2 hours, the defrost mode is malfunctioning.
  4. Defrosting will not function if its sensor is defective or wires are cut or short circuited.
If your unit defrosts frequently even when the conditions above are not met, you have a malfunctioning sensor. You may have to ask the help of a qualified technician to disassemble and:
  1. Check the connections of the sensor to the control board.
  2. Inspect the wires for short or cut wire.
  3. Push the reset button on the main board.
  4. Replace the sensor control assembly.

LRBN20512WW, the unit won't go into defrost, I manually defrosted it like the previous tech did. I ohmed out the heater but where is the timer and how do you start it?


May be the glass heater for defrost not function cause by thermal fuse broken, or may be the defrost timer damage. The timer location usually at the back of reff on the bottom side, over or near the compressor unit.
