Modern day fridges with 134a tend to run more than older units but use very little electricity if the freezer and fridge temps are fine and the doors are sealed i wouldn't be too concerned running times vary with things like temp settings how many time the doors are open etc but when running they use about as much power as a 100 watt light bulb

The compressor in the fridge energises for a constant 30 mins in every 90 mins. Is this normal?


depending on door seals and the number of times the door is opened and the temp setting on the thermostat and the positioning of the fridge it could be considered normal
see if you can get an idea of the cycle times at night when the fridge is not being opened and the room is cooler if the temp setting is close to 32 or zero celsius then the fridge works hard to maintain that low setting but if the setting is higher say 5 degrees celsius it runs a lot easier
the problem with fridges is that every time the door is opened , all the cold air falls on the floor and the motor has to run to fill the fridge with cold air again
fridges that are full of food maintain their cold better than empty fridges

Reset the ice maker back to making ice again


Turn the water supply off to the fridge, make sure the bailer wire (ice level bar) is in the down position. let the Ice maker run thru its cycle. When the cycle is complete the fingers that push out the cubes should all be down. Unplug the fridge for about 5 min. During this time turn the water supply back on. Plug the fridge back in and let it run thru a few cycles. This should reset the icemaker cycle. As a note: you should be able to hear the water turn on with a solid thump as the valve opens to fill the cube trays inside the icemaker.

Tempreture on fridge too high ice build up in fridge mahes noise like a tractor


Your automatic defrost cycle may not be working. Feel the walls inside and if they are hard solid you have ice build up and the fan is hitting the walls or ice making the noise. Unplug your fridge for 2 days and let the ice in the walls melt. Put towels on floor to catch water. Plug it back in and it should run fine for a couple of weeks until the ice builds up again. You have a bad timer and it isn't letting the defrost cycle come on. Defrost cycle are heating elements that melt the ice build up and runs about 10 mins once a day or so. This will give you time to check if an afforable repair can be done or a replacement fridge.

What is the purpose of two temperature control nobs when there is a single compressor in my samsung 280 lts fridge


1.If this is only a fridge the one knob will be for the min and the other for the max.
max. : As soon as you switch the fridge on it will cool down the fridge to max cool down temp. example -2deg.
min. : As soon as the fridge reaches the max cool down temp and it had switch the compressor off, the fridge will start to warm up slowly, by the time it reaches the min allowed warming up temp, it will switch the compressor back on and do the cycle all over again.
2. If it is a fridge/freezer setup, the one knob will be for the fidge and the other for the freezer. If the temp in the freezer is fine a fan is activated and blows all the cool air to the fridge and controls the temp. by activating the fan.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

What is normal running on/off time?


Fridge is perfectly OK. The on-off cycle depends on the physical load i.e. how much the fridge is stocked up with. A little heavy load would explain the cycle of on-off. Its normal and no need to do anything other than what u generally do, as mentioned, so carry on ......sodeep
