Hi,

The error code "RD" denotes refrigerator defrost error

RD error is usually due to air damper iced up.
The damper in the freezer spins around to close/open the air from the freezer to the fridge.
It ices up from time to time, or the damper motor, or sensor that reads it's position fails.

Very common fault, with samsung refridgerator.
There's a repair kit with a new sensor, damper and bigger heater that's needed to be fitted to nearly every RL33 fridge down here.
If that doesn't work, the damper motor itself is failing.

The dampers used in these fridges aren't an open/close type flap, but a damper that endlessly spins around, hence needing a magnetic position sensor to tell if it's open or closed. The "RD" fault means it's not spun to the position it should be in due to icing up or motor failure, or it can't detect it, due to sensor fault.

Please leave me comments, if you need further assistance

Bosch fridge freezer stops working after approx 8 hours. Starts OK and freezes OK but next day it's warming up. Turn it off and back on again and it starts all over again and the problem reoccurs..


Found a solution at

www.reviewcentre.com/vt100228_start50_orderasc.html

Short out the dark blue and the dark brown wires that lead into the temp control dial. Everything now works. This bipasses a dodgy thermister or something. Of course this might not solve all similar problems but it does seem a common fault.

Fridge and freezer not cooling down


It seems it's the defrost sensor (freezer side). Waiting for it to come, ordered this morning. It appears to be a defrost fault, having read on the web it seems you can check the defrost sensor with a meter across whilst holding the actual sensor in your hand tightly to see if the resistance changes, anyway it didn't. Will post when the new one comes and I change it.
