Question about Samsung Refrigerators
Your refrigerant compressor rotor (it is what make the fridge cold) is locked up most likely. Read on please. I see way too many Samsung high end units like yours fail very early. My last Whirlpool lasted 25 years and only replaced it (with another Whirlpool) to lower electrical cost.
This is actually a very bad error code on these refrigerators. It means the rotor is locked up inside the compressor and the only way to solve this issue is to actually replace the compressor. Unfortunately this means a basic rebuild of the sealed system of the refrigerator. It's a pretty big job to do this. You not only need special tools you also need a special license to recover the freon from the refrigerators sealed system.
I have however been able to solve this problem twice out of the 7 or 8 times I've seen this error by simply replacing the inverter control board on the back of the unit by the compressor. The inverter board on the back is usually flashing four times which means again locked rotor.
Fortunately for every one of these that I've seen they have been covered under first year warranty. Now I know that doesn't say a lot for Samsung but remember no matter which brand appliance you buy it will have issues eventually. Things just aren't made like they used to be. I hear it everyday my old refrigerator lasted 2o years.. You'll never buy another one that last that long..
