Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Rs253baww stopped working

We went on vacation, came back and fridge not working properly. Tried a couple of 10 minute power off resets- nada. some food items were frozen, temp panel not responding on either freezer or fridge- 49/52 degrees respectively showing on display, despite choosing lowest setting and power freeze/cool... Currently have it unplugged and open (for past 8 hours) I think it might be frozen? any other suggestions would be SOOO appreciated... am I on the right track or do I need to call a repair person (don't think there is a samsung one in my rural area) thanks!

Re: rs253baww stopped working

Simple. i think you have lost your thermostat dead. all this problem is just due to thermostat. since thermostat is not detecvting the problem properly your display is is not changing. again this thermostat is responsible for cutting of the colling process when colling gets increased.
and hence you are now sure to replace your thermostat. and more over i dont think you need a samsung tech only to repair this. if its not coming under warranty conditions you can get it repaired by any tech.
but as far as my experience is concerned. its definitely the thermostat. (i hope this is basic physics and u must have detected this problem by your own)

Power went out, and my g.e. refrigererator lights are on inside but the ice and water panel is off and fridge has not run sense

Unplug your refrigerator from the wall current. Wait 10 minutes and plug it back in.
The powere outage may have tripped an internal breaker. Usually, unplugging, waiting 10 minutes and plugging the fridge back in....will reset the internal electronics. Good Luck!

Freezer goes off with brief power failure + does not reset

What Samsung said is untrue....
The fridge and freezer have default settings...8 and 38 deg. If it looses power and is restored it will default to that....
This fridge is a complex device and is compute chip controlled.
There are tests that you can run if you have the ability to read and follow directions....That will allow you to guide a service person to what your problem is. They will probably not have this information so I am giving you the link to the service manual...

Good luck

I have a GE REfridge that stopped running....

The compressor never runs out of freon - unless you have a leak somewhere, which is rare - and besides, your compressor motor would be still running but you would not get cooling - the most common problem associated with this is control board failure, so compressor does not start at all. Try unplugging the refrigerator for a few minutes and plug in again - see if this resets the control board - if problem persists or comes back you will need to call service and have them check the control board.

Before doing so, try unplugging and plugging back in after a few minutes, it might get things started again - if you have a manual knob for your cold control try setting the dial to off, then turn it back on all the way until you hear a "click" sound to confirm your thermostat is working properly - if you hear the clicking on the thermostat area, but compressor motor does not come on, call service.

the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes

Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.
