Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator
My Freezer seem to work great 0degree F, but Fridge temp fluctuates between 34-50 F. The temperature gauge that i've put in always says 45 F
Another funny thing is that the Fresh Veggie bin is very cold...freezing veggies inside.
I ran the self diag by pressing PowerFreeze and PowerCool buttons at the same time and it says PLC(power line communication) Error (PLC Related wire cut, Defective PLC module, Defective Communication Components in main PCB) is the description of the test result. (service manual)
Your fridge has seperate evaporators for the fridge and freezer sections with a variable speed compressor.
The diagnostic test is telling you that the main control board (PCB) is not communicating properly with the display board where you set the temps, or it is not sensing the condition of the fridge properly, either the fan speed or thermistor resistence.
I do not have a manual in front of me so I can't guide you directly, but look in the manual you have and find the tests for the fridge thermistor and fridge fan motor and follow those instructions. If they are correct according to the manual, you probably need to replace the PCB (PBA in parts diagram) located behind the machine inside the compressor compartment, or possibly the user control board which is the the display board that you use to set the temps.
The service manual you have should give tests for the display board as well, but my bet is the main board in the back.
