The only way I would buy it is if You can have him unplug it and leave the door open for at least 24 hours. Then plug it in. If it stays cold the first day or so it is a defrost problem and can be cheaply fixed. You could get lucky and have it be a start relay but I wouldn't take a chance. If the compressor is running and still not cooling I wouldn't take it if he gave it to me. Freon leaks and compressors usually are not worth fixing. You don't have the training, certification, or tools to work on the sealed system. The only other solution is if there is a tech school in your area. Sometimes they will fix things as a training exercise for only the cost of parts. You usually have to deliver and pick up the fridge.

Water is not cold

NO SOLUTION, THERE'S JUST NO EXTRA TUBING. Domestic refers with water dispensing feature will have a coil of plastic water tubing tucked away in the refer behind a drawer or at the bottom; it hold s cedent amount of cold water when you dispense it. However, You won't find this additional tubing in a Samsung refer. This fridge is made 'abroad' by folks don't have the same standards as the U.S. The icemaker, for instance, is found to be accepatable by their standards when it makes 72 cubes per day; HAH! We use more than that for dinner. We buy bagged ice and use a Brita pitcher. I will switch back to Whirlpool or Maytag when this thing craps out.

My freezer is not getting ice

If the freezer is not cold enough you may have a compressor problem. First totally defrost the fridge. then plug the fridge back in and check that the fan in the bottom that cools the compressor is working. the cold control can fail so turn the cold control to the highest setting and note if the compressor stops running before the freezer starts making ice. If the fridge just runs and runs and does not get cold enough to make ice you have a somewhat serious problem. the compressor can be replaced but it is expensive and you might be better off to get a different unit (new or used) that will work correctly. Most used appliance stores will have something that will work well and won't cost that much.

I have a samsung fridge freezer model no RSH1DTMH and the fridge will not go lower than 13degrees and the freezer and water dispenser seem ok. The fridge freezer is only 3 years old. Any ideas/

We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.

I have the samsung rb1944sl with digital temp control on front. refrig on top. the frig light went out and now the thing is beeping a warning sound the frig temp has risen to 59 degree but the freeze is...

I have the same problem and here is what I have found: The door switch is bad. I removed the switch (placed a screw driver under the left side and pried it off (see page 29 of for a pic))
After I disconnected the switch, It worked. I am now off to find a new switch to order.
Hope this helps some one else as your original post is almost a year after mine.

Is my compressor must be replace?

The easiest way for you to find out is to bear the expense of buying the start relay/overload assembly mounted to the pins of the compressor, along with the run capacitor. If this starts it and runs with low amps, like 1-3, you're likely safe. Don't buy food for 24 hours. Sometimes the compressor won't seize again for hours afterward if it has been allowed to cool down before replacing relay.
