Question about Samsung RB215LASH

1 Answer

Freezer not cooling and refrigerator cooling sometimes, but not consistently. I unpllugged the refrigerator/freezer for a minute or so and plugged it back in and it is now cooling somewhat. Does this indicate an electronics problem or a sealed system problem?

Since you say that is isn't cooling properly, I would first start off by cleaning the condenser grill that is located under the cabinet. While this won't correct your problem entirely, it will help!
Most likely you have a defrost system malfuntion. The defrost system consists of the defrost heater (p/n: 5303918208) which is the long tube like thing that sits directly below your evaporator behind the panel in the back of the freezer (inside the freezer). It also consists of the defrost thermostat (p/n: 5303918202), which is located next to the evaporator. Both the defrost heater and defrost thermostat can be checked with an ohm meter - a non-open/infinity reading is good. If both of those check out and are good then it has to be the defrost timer (p/n: 215846602) which is located behind the plastic shield (with the light bulb).
Suggest you defrost the unit (making sure no ice or frost is behind the freezer panel then plug the refrigerator back in. If everything cools down then my diagnosis is correct and one of the components of the defrost system is bad.

aHi,
You need to check the following to make sure your fridge is working properly:
Vent blockage - Air flows between the freezer and refrigerator sections to provide proper cooling via air vents.
Condenser coil - When the condenser coil is dirty it causes the sealed system to overheat and therefore the refrigerator will not cool properly.
Defrost Cycle - When the refrigerator goes into defrost, the cooling mode stops and a defrost heater energizes to remove accumulated frost from the evaporator (cooling) coil, which causes the freezer temperature to rise slightly.
Proper Air Circulation - Refrigerators require a specific amount of clearance around the cabinet to allow for air circulation. If the refrigerator does not have the minimum clearance required, the refrigerator cannot cool properly.
Hope this helps.

You have one of the following problems which is indicated by the frost buildup. Your defrost timer has failed, or defrost heater circuit consisting of a defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Start at the defrost timer. May be located in the fridge compartment near the temperature controls. There may be a recess through which you can turn the dial SLOWLY clockwise until you hear one click. the freezer will be in defrost. Wait 18-22 minutes and the freezer should defrost and restart into cooling. If it does not restart after 30 minutes turn the screw clockwise again one more click and it should restart.
If you had to turn it again to get it to restart the timer is bad and needs to be replaced. If the timer restarted the cooling mode after 18-22 minutes and defrost did not take place your problem is in the heater circuit.
