    Thats the main control board in the back of the refrigerator right? I have also tried the pwer freeze and pwer cool trick and that doesnt work either. I have unplugged it before and plugged it back in a few hours later and it does the same thing again.

    I have this Samsung SxS RS2577SL that keeps shutting down after it reaches its working tempature. Then the temp. just flashes on the display board and doesnt cut back on. It doesnt cool or freeze inside so and the tempature doesnt change on the display board either. I have already tried the Pwer Cool and Pwer Freeze trick and when i unplug it and plug it back in a few hours later it does the same thing. What is the deal?

HELLO THERE:
It sounds like to me that the unit is tripping on either the low refrigerant level or the thermal overload switch is faulty
which is causing the compressor to shut down and not start untill you unplug the unit for several minutes and let sit then if you plug in the refrigerator it will do the same thing again. i would suggest if you have a warranty still on the unit try to use it, if not contact a authorized dealer for repair information ok? i really hope that this helps you out and you get the unit fixed,
best of luck michael

Its the problem in the evaporator coil.the ice is got buid up in the coil.when the temperature reaches to its cooling state.at that time the coil is getting over heated also temperature is flashing and its shuts off.also get the evaporator coil fan checked.if that is also getting blocked by ice build up in it.then also same problem occurs.the simple and best option is .just defrost the unit for 36 hours.this resets the refrigerator as per the manual.unplug it from the power outlet.keep the doors open.before connecting the power again to the unit.clean all the water leaked in the unit.this will help. thanks. please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

Rangemaster sxs u109100 fridge freezer temp in fridge +15


Hi - can't solve it but ours has started doing the same - ours will only work if the fridge temperature is selected to 9 C (press the button under ~Ref Temp until cycles round to 9C) then it controls to 9 - if the temperature is set to 5C then it seems to give up and goes back to 15 - don't know why but will investigate more

Samsung model rs2577sl. fridge side not working


5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

It might be that your fridge went into something called 'demo mode' that shuts the compressor down so as not to waste electricity on the showroom floor. The freezer and fridge sides both start to warm up, but the temperatures shown on the outside of the door never change, so you don't know you have a problem until you open the fridge or freezer and find you have a melted mess. My Samsung is 7 years old and we run into this problem frequently when our power is on and off, like just recently with hurricane Ike. Per the Samsung website, the cure for 'demo mode' is to unplug the fridge for 1 minute then plug it back in. They also suggested pressing Power Freeze and Freezer Temp together for 8 seconds until you hear a chime to cancel demo mode. Good luck. I really dislike this machine.
