Question about Samsung RS2630WW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I want to know if you can de-ice the freezer without turning the refrigerator section off. There's ice buildup in the freezer, obstructing the door. I want to de-ice it but don't want to turn off the fridge section and ruin the refrigerated food. I've turned the freezer to it's weakest freeze setting & opened the door wide. But the freeze element is keeping it too cold for the ice to melt. There's only one power chord for both sides of the fridge.

Freezer is frosting and refrigerator is warm.


As far as your freezer frosting up, sounds like a door seal problem, run your fingers along the seam of the door seal, there should be no splits/holes in the seal.
As far as the refrigerator either there is a secondary fan motor, or there is a obstruction blocking the air movement, if the freezer has a bad seal, its suspect ice is still building up.

Model # MFF2557HES Top refrigator section stoped cooling freezer is working


You may have Ice buildup in the freezer. You freezer has a fan in the bak that sends the cool air to the fridge. Your fridge dial determines how muh cold air comes from the freezer. Try defrosting the freezer. You may have to pull the back panel off of the inside of the freezer to get the ice thawed. The ice build up is likely causing the air to not get to the fridge. Hope it works.

A 11 year old whirlpool fridge.. freezer working but not the fridge.. water dripping out from the shaft between freezer to fridge


HI, sounds like you have 2 problems. First of all, your drain pan in the freezer is clogged and will need to be cleaned out, second: this ice has caused an air flow restriction to the refer section. When you clear out all the ice, look for obstruction that you prevent clean air flow to the refer section. This should solve the problem.
You may have to remove all the food from the freezer, remove shelves and rear wall to clear all the ice. Failure to remove all the ice can prevent air from circulating from section to section. I would not suggest in using a hair dryer, too much heat in the wrong place can cause damage to the liner in the form of warping.
Turn off the unit while doing this de-icing, this will help greatly.
Good Luck

Refrigerator not cooling


This could be that it is out of balance. Set the temperature settings to midway. This control can easily get the fridge temp out out of balance if over adjusted. If you already have the tmp control at midway then you need to make sure there are no obstructions to the duct that carries the cold air from the freezer to the fresh food section to cool it. Check for ice buildup or any kind of blockage. Let me know what you find.

Refrigerator side of my side by side to warm


Check the back wall of the freezer section for signs of frost buildup. Your problem could be caused by a frozen evaporator coil in the freezer section. After making your check come back and give the model number of your Maytag .

Listen for a fan running when you open the freezer door. May have to hold the light switch closed for it to come on. If you don't hear it then the fan is most likely bad. The evavorator fan motor is the most common repair on the trio's
