SOURCE: Samsung RB2055Sl Top refrigerator couling coil freezing up every 2 or 3 weeks

The problem is freeze up. Bad door gasket or too much window shopping are the biggest issues. Could be low gas. Either take off the back freezer panel and defrost or unplug for 2 days to defrost fully. Oh, and clean the condenser coil. Then, let's see what the unit does.

SOURCE: samsung refrigerator freezer not freezing

-2 although below freezing temperature, is not really enough to keep food really frozen. I am presuming we are talking in Celcuis. You need to set the freezer to a lower setpoint.

Samsung rf217acrs freezer is not freezing


would check ur freezer thermistors and cold control thermostat as well as air flow damper vent

Lastly check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!

THERMISTORS in the freezer and fridge section for continuity OHMS and for amount of OHMS current being put out. In most models around 13000 ( give or take 150 ohms) ohms is required

1) Press the "Express Freezing" key and the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function at the same time and hold for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will enter Test Mode 1. Test Mode 1 allows diagnostic function of the compressor and freezer fan, stepping damper open, defrosting heater off and display LEDs all on.

2) Touch the "Express Freezing" key and the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function at the same time while in Test Mode 1 and hold for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will enter Test Mode 2. Test Mode 2 allows diagnostic operation of the compressor and freezer fan, stepping damper close and defrosting heater off.

3) Press the "Express Freezing" key as well as the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function together while in Test Mode 2 and hold for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will go into Test Mode 3. Test Mode 3 allows diagnostic operation on the compressor and freezer fan off, stepping damper close and defrosting heater on.

4) Press the "Express Freezing" key and the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function at the same time while in Test Mode 3 and maintain for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will reset to the state prior to entering test mode.

5) Unplug the blog798088-troubleshooting-lg-refrigerator-defrost-cycles.htm&opts=1,3,5Lg refrigerator from the wall outlet, then plug it back in to reset the appliance after coming out of test mode.

Whirlpool Gold freezes up to frige side


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Kitchenaid KSRA25IL Freezer working Fine - Refrigerator not


many times when a unit has a defrost problem the coils freeze up and do not allow the fresh food side to cool properly...check for a build up of ice on the inside back wall of the freezer compartment. if there is a build up of ice, you have a defrost problem. Also, check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is blowing the air into the fresh food side.

GE GSH25JSTA SS side by side fridge not cooling/freezing


In most cases it is the Defrost timer circuit. One of three things the Defrost time (most likely) it allows the cooling for a 6 to 10 hour period and the defrosting for 10 to 30 minutes to remove ice buildup, ICE BUILDUP is the main problem as it restrict air flow, the cooling air circulation through the system. You see cool air only comes in the freezer side and passes through vents (pass ways) to the refrigerator side. Ice buildup in the freezer side inhibits cooling air to the refrigerator side. You think the freezer is working, but it is only cooler because there is ice in there that you can't see. The Terminator (a LIMIT switch) opens the defrost circuit if the defrost heater gets too hot (second likely) the next is the Heater which heats for those 10 to 30 minutes to melt the ice buildup (least likely) no matter the Unit you have they all have this circuit... Hope this helps, I'm Tango

Freezer too cold frosty, and refrigerator section too warm


Sounds like a defrost problem if the evaporator is frozen over. If it's just Ice blocking air transfer on a top freezer model, then it's a blocked defrost drain.

Amana refrigerator only not working


Model # important.
You have a failure of the defrost system. There are 3 components not counting wire and connectors. Most likely it is not the heater that leaves the defrost timer then the defrost thermostat. My guess is that the defrost thermostat is bad (just a guess for now) Need more info to help you more. If you know what and where the defrost timer is then advance it clockwise till you hear a distinct click, not the little clocks you hear during turning it, a distinct click. If after about 10 minutes you notice the frost down low on the freezer rear interior wall melting. Replace the Timer it is bad.
If this makes no difference then I am betting you have a bad defrost thermostat and it is located on the top right part of the freezer cooling coil behind the rear interior wall of the freezer behind the frost.
