SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

SOURCE: fridge quit cooling after i moved it

did you tilt it when you moved it and then when u got it in place plug it in? if so youve got compressor problems, anytime you tilt a fridge you have to let it set for several hours to allow the oil to get back to the compressor or you ruin the compressor

SOURCE: Hotpoint Fridge Freezer FF187e - 3 lights flashing

Hi, I've just fixed this I think! it started making a noise then stopped then the fridge got really warm. In the freezer compartment unscrew the white cover, behind there I found the fan had got ice all around it and ice over a sensor, I have defrosted it and plugged it back in and it is cold again. However the super cool and super freeze are still flashing after several hours, but it is now cold. Better than paying Hotpoint £160 to fix it!

I have a Britannia nabraska side by side fridge freezer. All of a sudden the freezer compartment is not cold enough as though the door had been left open - but 24 hours later has not got colder

You may have a bad thermostat or you could just be frosted over inside. You'll need to look behind the back panel in the freezer for syntoms if unplugging to defrost doesn't work.

Fridge freezer get warmer every 24 hours

Sounds like you need a new timer switch, they are generally located on the bottom kick panel. And can be bought at most appliance parts stores.

Samsung SR 61KTC fridge not cooling but freezer is fine fans seemed to be very noisy a few days ago now sound like not on at all

Had the same problem when the door switch broke. The electronics of the fridge thought the door was open and therefore the fridge would not cool. I noticed that the light wouldn't turn off when the door was closed to discover the switch was broken. It was an $11 part which my husband replaced and the fridge works fine now.

For Samsung Refrigerator SR-L629EV my freezer

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Moved from one location to another and it will not cool. It was working fine at first location

If you tilted the fridge during the move and then switched it on as soon as you installed it in the new position, you have damaged the compressor and will need to replace it. A fridge should stand at least three hours after being moved before switching it on again so that the fluid in the system can settle into the compressor so that it does not start 'dry' and burn out.

Freezer works, fridge does not. Also the sides of the fridge are really hot but not up the top near freezer section. Fridge has recently been moved. Thanks

Warm sides are usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back not running. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

When it was moved, was it laid down? If it was it should be stood upright for 24 hours before being plugged back in.

Refridgerator beeps and upper section not working

First, the Samsung Refrigerator is the only fridge that has one compressor, but two different evaporators to operate the freezer and the refrigerator separately. Thus, you can have the bottom freezer working fine, while the fridge part will not.
The reason your fridge is not working is probably a faulty door switch in the refrigerator. The switch is malfunctioning, telling the computer that the door is open. Therefore you hear the door alarm go off in intervals, even though the door is actually closed. If the computer registers an open door, it will not pump cool air into the refrigerator, as that would be a waste of energy. All you need to do is replace the door switch. Until you get a new one, you can temporarily fix your fridge by simply removing the old switch altogether. You will not have any light in the fridge, however, it will cool again just fine until you are able to install the new switch (a simple plug-in contraption, by the way).
Hope this helps.

Could you kindly tell me how to open this pictured section of the fridge ? Is it inside the freezer section ?

SRL551DP, fridge stops, display on door flashing.

You most likely have a problem in the freezing/cooling circuit. Check your condenser, evaporator fans to see if they are running okay. Most likely it may be the condenser fan.
