I have a samsung side by side refrigerator side by side, and it stopped cooling. the model no. is RS2533VQXAA. what can I do to resolve this problem?


Does the compressor try to start? Pull the unit away from the wall. Located on the back is a small door that covers the control board. Remove the cover and look for any burnt spots on the board.
The problem is likely the start relay locted on the compressor. Unplug the unit, remove the wires from the relay on the compressor, ( be sure to take note of their location on the relay) pull the relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles then it need to be replaced. Here is the relay to order if you need it. Samsung DA35 10013Q Start Relay AppliancePartsPros com

If the relay is good then replace the control board. Here is that part to order. Samsung DA41 00134F Pba AppliancePartsPros com

Keep me posted!!

Refrigerator model bx21vl does not cool. I can hear the compressor kick in but it kicks out in 5-10 seconds. Then after about 102 to one minute it kicks in and out again,


Compressor is tripping on overload. You may just need the overload and relay replaced due to a bad compressor relay. The relay is what switches the compressor from it's start winding to it's run winding. If you pull the relay off, shake it to see if you hear lots of rattling inside, that's a sure sign of a bad relay. I would replace both of them.
Here is the overload relay to order.

Compressor not kicking on model refrigerator


Sounds like the cold control has stuck open. Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.
If this doesn't work Do this

That is probably the compressor relay or cold control (Thermostat
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Compressor does not start all I get is a clicking sound when it tries to start model#970-65832c purchase July 2004


The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it does not cost much. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad. If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need to call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).You can enter your model # at Refrigerator clicking for diagrams and illustrations or to purchase a start relay. A 3 in 1 start relay will also work fine. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Flashing display and ticking coming from the back


The clicking noise you hear is the compressor trying to start but the overload is tripping that is hooked to the compressor. Either you have a bad start relay which I would replace first or your compressor is locked up. If the unit is under five yrs old but older than January 08 then the compressor not the relay is under warranty. Jan 08 manufactorers have put a one yr warranty on compressors. Its real easy to replace the start components on the compressor. Unplug first then take back panel off. If the compressor is hot more than likely the compressor valves are bad and wont pump which overamps then trips overload. Then resets and tries again. But if compressor is cool then you should be able to replace start relay and compressor should start up. Those relays usually get too hot from dirty coils and/or a bad fan motor by the compressor that blows air across it to keep it cooler. But the cost of new fridges is an incentive to try the relay. Hope this helps.

Unit stopped cooling


the click and hum your hearing is most likely the compressor trying to start. the most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. in rare cases the compressor may be bad. if you are mechanicly inclined youc an replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. you will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company. good luck Peyton

Is it worth it for me to replace the relay?


Take off the small panel on the back bottom of the fridge.  Mounted to the left side of the compressor is the relay.  It may have a black plastic cover over it that will need to be removed.  It looks like your model # is MSD2756GES if so the part # for the relay is 61006186.  If the compressor is a Tecumpseh, which has a little blue sticker of an indian on it, then I would bet that the compressor is bad.  If it is an Embraco I would try the relay.  Compressors are covered for 5 yrs. from the date of purchase.
