SOUNDS LIKE ITS NOT DEFROSTING . CHECK TO SEE IF THERE IS ICE ON BACK PANEL OF FREEZER.
THE EVAPORATOR UNDER THAT PANEL IS A RADIATOR, FROST CLOGS RADIATOR , PREVENTING AIR CIRCULATION. THE RADIATOR ITSELF GETS COLDER THAN NORMAL MAKING THE LARGE LINE COMING OUT OF THE BACK COLD AS YOU DESCRIBED,BUT COLD CAN NOT BE TRANSFERED TO FRIDGE SIDE BECAUSE OF THE FROST.

ADVANCE TIMER FIRST UNTIL IT CLICKS.THIS SHOULD TURN COMPRESSOR OFF AND HEATER ON. IF TIMER IS ADVANCING PROPERLY , REFRIGERATOR WILL COME BACK ON WITHIN 30 MIN. IF NOT REPLACE DEFROST TIMER.

HOPE THIS HELPED

    Rod,

    No, timer and cold control are two different items. The timer is a small clock device that switches the frig. from refrigerate to defrost. More times than not it will be located on one side or the other on bottom back, or in the plastic fixture that the cold control is in. You can identify timer by the fact it rarely has a knob instead it will have a small plastic one way screw so you can only turn it clock wise.G.E. units sometimes have it under kick plate. Rod admire your tenastity.Godbless Fxit

Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator not cooling down frig or freezer


Is the compressor running? If so, feel the discharge line is the line cold? If not the unit is probably out of Freon, which means it will have a leak somewhere in the system.

Freezer not cold enough


setting the freezer at 7 opens the baffle from the freezer to the fridge to make the fridge colder. It works completely opposite than a person would think. Feel in the back of the fridge with it on this setting. The freezer is dumping all its cold air into the fridge thus equalizing the two parts. if you move the selector to 1, you should feel the air from the freezer cut off in the fresh food compartment. try a setting in the middle and let sit for 24 hours. Hope this helps

Freezer is cold, refrigerator is warm.


If your evaporator fan is working (the fan in your freezer) you might want to check the air baffle. That is located in the back of your frig section. It is most likely all the way top left. Put your hand in front of it there should be air coming through the baffle. If there is no air coming through you either left your door open and froze the inside lining if your refrigerator or your air baffle control is broken.
If you left the door open and it froze the lining the only solution is to shut it down and leave both doors open for at least 24 hours straight. There is no way to get the ice out.

Upper freezer temp. alright Lower refrigerator to


Sounds like the airflow balance is off. When you turn the aircontrol to max what you are actually doing is starving the frig compartment of cold air, cold freezer, warmer frig. It is recommended to set both controls to middle and see if it helps the problem.

Ge profile buttom freezer cold refrigerator hot


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is that cold air not getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is not open.
check your control setting. You should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side.

2. The fan in the freezer is not working.
You can hear this fan running when you open the freezer.

3. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice which won't let the fan circulate the air over to the Ref side.
This is a failure of the defrost system.

If there is no frost on the freezer side it may be low on coolant.

You can melt this ice manually for a temp fix but the defrost system needs to be checked. Turn it off, take everything out of the freezer, use a hair dryer to warm the back wall. Do this for as long as you can without anything thawing then put it back in, turn it on and you will be good for a couple of days.

You can manually defrost for a temp fix. Turn it off, take everything out of the freezer, use a hair dryer to warm the back wall. Do this for as long as you can before anything starts to thaw. Put everything back in, turn it on and this should last a couple of days.
