Temp light flashing on freezer

I have a problem with the temperature light that just started flashing on my freezer and all the items inside are starting to thaw. I just bought it last month, who do I contact to repair it in Woodbridge, VA? It should be under warranty. I don't know what could be wrong with it

    Does anyone know the contact information for who I can contact to get someone in here for a warranty repair? I've had technicians from Sears home repair come in before, but I don't know if they do warranty for Samsung products. Is there a repair department I can call to get a tech out? I would appreciate any suggestions you can offer.

    Thank you so much for your help. I will give them a call first thing in the morning then. Hopefully the stuff in the freezer will last that long if I can convince the kids not to open it too much. Thanks again, Allie

Why would the freezer and fridge temperature indicators flash after a few hours of the unit being switched on?

Hi, some fridge freezers the indicators flash as they have not got to the right temperature yet. Also some freezers have indicators that will start flashing to let you know that the door has been open to long and the freezer temp has risen.

Fridgidaire refrigerator flashing error code 4

From what I remember a flashing 4 means "damper error". Send your model number found inside or on the outside of the fresh food section, The air damper is found between the freezer and fresh food section and regulates temperature in the fresh food section by opening wide for things that warm up your fresh food section example would be opening the door and letting warm air inside . The damper then closes to keep the right temperature. If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

The temperature for the fridge and freezer will not stay constant. Why?

I would think first of the defrost termination thermostat malfunctioning.
This would vary the defrost time since it regulates the defrost time by temperature.
This is the most common failure in fridges next to start relays.
It is a two wire item in the freezer section which is clipped onto a tube. It senses
line temperature and turns off the defrost element when that temp is reached.
Should be located in the freezer section behind the back panel. Model and serial
number should be inside the refrigerator compartment, Part should be available
at an appliance parts store. Hope this helps.

Temperature swing specification in a chest freezer.

It depends on the control that your freezer utilizes.

If your temp control dial has the numbers 0-9 or 1-9, then you have whats commonly known as a coil temp sensor.

Unlike an air temp contol that measure the air temp inside the freezer and comes on and off with a 3-5° swing, the coil temp sensor runs a little bit different.

With a coil temp control or sensor, the temp control has a capillary tube and bulb that is inserted into the coil either at on of the ends down a guidetube or just into the center of the radiator type fins. This temp control measures the temperature of the coil, and not the temperature of the air inside the freezer. When the unit runs, the coils typically gets 20° colder than the air temp. And when the control satisfies (shuts off), it will not call for cooling again until the sensing bulb has reached the cut-in point which is typically well above design box temp.

So, to quickly answer your question, yes it is possible to have a 25° temp swing and not have anything really wrong with the unit. That is how its been designed to operate and that is how it will operate. Your only option (although not recommended) is to replace the coil temp sensor with and air temp control. That will give you more consistent temps.

Also, when taking temp of a freezer with a coil temp sensor, be sure to temp the product in the freezer and not the air temperature.

Problem has sorted itself out. We removed and gave away quite a lot of food from the freezer and cleared away some ice that had accumulated on the temperature sensor.
