Question about Samsung Refrigerators
The freezer section does not cool enough and the temperature shown in the front panel changes erratically (-14, -6, 0 …). It is set at the minimum of -25°C
Otherwise, the refrigerator section is too cool and freeze the food despite it is set at the maximum , +7°C
BTW I have reset the refrigerator many of times, by plugging and unplugging the power cord.
Thanks in advance for you help!!!

Call Samsung. I had the same problem when Best Buy delivered mine. The delivery people left the fridge in demo mode. The people at Samsung will talk you through it, it is very simple. The fridge should work fine then.

Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.
If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.
This is usually not a do it your selfer.

I had the same problem with my GE GSS25LGMB and after some googling I learned that the damper door might be broken. Indeed after I took off the damper assembly the door appeared to be broken at the hinge. This door has its own thermostat and controls the influx of cold air into the fridge which explains the frozen food. I am trying to glue the broken piece back on. See if it works. Othwersie you'll have to replace the entire damper assembly which costs about $91. (http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/cgi-bin/detail.cgi?item=WR49X10091&brand=GEH)

look under your refridgerator and see if there is alot of dust on the coils. Whenever food starts freezing in my fridge I vacuum the coils and the problem goes away.
