All my food thawed in my freezer. Is it just defrosting or is it broken?


Most newer freezers have self defrosting. But it will not thaw out the food at all. For it to thaw completely in 1 day, the compressor did not come on at all. I would first check the fuse or circuit breaker in your home. Many different issues could cause the same result of the freezer not getting cold at all. Defective thermostat, defective compressor, refrigerant leak or loose wiring at connection points. It could possibly be stuck in the defrost mode too.

Ice buildup in bottom of freezer--puddle of water on floor


this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.

MY SAMSUNG FRIDGE FREEZER WORKS FINE FOR A WHILE THEN IT WILL TURN ITSELF OFF FOR MAYBE AN HOUR OR TWO AND THEN TURN BACK ON AGAIN THIS HAPPENS ON A REGULAR BASIS ????


So, is this a problem? Does it allow frozen items to thaw? Frost free freezers work by going into a heat cycle about once every 20 hours or so for about 20 minutes; your model may be defrosting too long. During defrost, the compressor is off, and a heater is on inside the coils of the freezer. This melts ice built up on the heat exchanger. It might be normal for your model to be off for up to an hour if there is heavy frost build-up. Are the doors shutting and sealing correctly? A bad seal on the freezer door will allow frost to build up quickly.
Some of the Samsung models connect to your home network and allow the power company to put them into power save mode when necessary--this might be what your's is doing, but there is a panel indication when this happens.

Constant Defrost causing water accumulation problems


Yes! look under you fridge for the consendate drain hose *(usually dangling right over the catch tray) and using a long piece of slightly heavy guage wire snake up the drain hose and see if it's blocked.

If it isn't blocked you might have a crack somewhere in the fridges interior near the fridge/freezer interface. That might be a bit harder to spot since it would most likely be under cover.

Good luck and be careful.

Stops cooling ice melts and leaks water on the floor


That model refrigerator uses the mother control board for deciding when defrost is to take place. It has no defrost timer or Adaptive Defrost Control like other refrigerators. This sounds like *********** board part number WR55X10942 is malfunctioning. The board decides most functions of your refrigerator. Until the board is replace I do not believe the problem will resolve itself. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Model FRS26ZRF, the freezer side is cooling down


It could be the defrost system? When you allowed to thaw, did you check the evaporator? It could be frozen? It will take longer to thaw. Is the evaporator fan working? It and the compressor will not, when the box is in defrost. Is your defrost working? Are your door gaskets sealing properly? Are your doors aligned properly? Some things to check. Good luck.

The freezer goes into a defrost mode, everything thaws then


most likely the defrost timer is going bad... staying in defrost mode too long replace it (is located under cover where temp controls are on most brands)
