SOURCE: Samsung side-by-side refrig is not staying cold

Look for signs of frost build up on back freezer panel. If there is build up then it has a defrost problem. I haven't had much experience with samsung but I beleive it has a fuse in the defrost circuit on the evaporator and that may be the defrost problem.

SOURCE: pink fluid under refrigerator

Loklok...no, I don't think so. The only fluid in refrigerators is an oil which is sealed in the cooling system and we know you are cooling. Your fridge may need a full defrost. This occurs because you may have left items uncovered and the moisture condensed in the cooling coils. It could also be the result of improperly sealing doors caused by dirt/ bad gaskets or the like. Best thing to do: shut it off, open the doors and let it defrost fully for a day. Clean the condenser coils under the unit with a long brush. Dry out as best you can and restart. You'll likely be okay. Make sure your freezer side is at about 0-5 above...refrigerator side 35-45. Use a regular thermometer and leave the door closed for at least an hour. (Do these measurements a day after you've restarted.)

SOURCE: GE model TFX24FA side by side

If solution #1 fixes the problem, but it happens again, then check to see if you have water leaking from the ice maker area. I had a similar problem with my same model, and found that the ice maker water fill tube was leaking where connects to the connector in the back wall of the freezer. Water was leaking onto the freezer coils, causing it to go into defrost for long periods and both the freezer and fridge would warm up.

Getting to the fill tube is not an easy job. If you just pull it out without disassembling the fan compartment, you will probably not be able to get it back in.

You will likely want to move your food, unplug the fridge and thaw it out. Disassembling the top compartment on the inside of the back wall of the freezer is a tedious and time consuming task. After that I was able to just pull the tube out and turn it around and push it back in for a snug fit. You might consider using a sealer.

SOURCE: both the freezer and refrigerator will not stay

you must have a defrost problem,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not change evap fan motor,remove second from bottom bin and touch the back wall if you feel ice or snow there you have a defrost problem check the t-stat and heater,not sure but if you read the tech sheet i think you can click the light switches to put into defrost,also if plugs are on t-stat,unplug them and bypass the t-stat by pluging the wire to the heater,if heater comes on then you have bad t-stat if not read out heater with meter,also ge has been having alot of problems with the mother board ,if you defrosted it and it happened again in a 2 week period i dout it's the board

SOURCE: The lower refrigerator section is not cold anymore

check to see if the fan motor in the freezer is running. all the cooling happens in the freezer and the fan is what circulates the cold air down to the refrigerator.. if the fan isnt running ,it could be a bad connection or a bad fan motor..on some models the doors need to be closed before the fan comes on so just push on the door switch to check .if the fan is running then a defrost problem may be the problem.. you mentioned you defrosted the unit. if the auto defrost isnt working, you would notice frost on the back of the freezer. there would be a lot more frost behind that panel that could block the airflow down to the frig. you would have to remove rear panel of freezer to clear all the frost and restore proper airflow..remember to unplug the frig before doing any work..

What can the problem be if the buzzer goes off every time an refrigerator not cold enough stays on 9


A fridge or freezer will sound an alarm if it can't hold the temperature it is set to keep the interior to.
The cause can be, a bad or not running compressor, or the system lost cooling fluid. (Used to be freon, but not anymore)

The unit won't stay on.


If the refrigerator wont stay on the start relay may be defective. This may have been caused by the leaking door that overloaded the system. The relay is a small box mounted to the side of the compressor and provides power to the compressor start winding for a split second at start-up to help get the compressor get started. If its defective the compressor may run off and on (a lot) or not at all and the refrigerator will not get cold enough. Fairly easy to do and reasonable

Divider red hot


I'm not familiar with the Samsung refrigerators, but on most side-by-sides the evaporator (cooling) coils are located within the divider partition between the two sides.... along with the defroster 'heater' coils. During the defrost cycle, this panel may feel warm/hot to the touch. Are the freezer/refrigerator sections staying as cold as they should be otherwise? If they are also TOO WARM, then you may have a 'defrost cycle' relay or timer motor malfunctioning.

also see if the fan works properly.

Good luck..

Power Cool button works on freezer , but not fridge


He Alisonki! I was having the same problem. On mine the water coil inside the refrigerator keeps freezing which keeps the water from circulating and my refridge won't stay cold. I was told by one repairman that it was a computer problem and you have to order parts from the Samsung Manufactuer which takes about 2 - 3 weeks to get. I am tossing mine and buying a more reliable brand. One repairman came yesterday and left without fixing anything or charging me. Larry
