Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

I have a samsung RS21DABB. The freezer section is not working and not holding temperature. The fridge part is fine. The fault happened suddenly, not gradually. Can you tell me what's wrong and does it sound expensive? Can I fix it myself?

Samsung rs21dabb defrost sensor problem


Hello Nigel Brown,

Defrost "sensor" problem... sounded pretty intriguing:
I could not resist... AMAZON & eBay abound in
"DEFROST SENSORS"...
but your model RS21DABB shows not-here/there.

FIXYA is a San Francisco Bay Area based site...
but I am proud to say we have grown into a Global
group... Welcome.

I have scoured domestic sites... and found nothing...
Your RS21DABB only resonates with the retailer at
the bottom... (espares.co.uk)

But alas... NO mention of our ever popular
DEFROST TIMERS... or power control boards

The only REAL DIFFERENCE from our world to yours...
being the line voltages different countries
choose to use...

(motors, lights & transformers are different...
but the designs are pretty much unchanged for generations)

Sounds like bad news... but not so much

My BEST advice...
Pull out your original parts list...
IDENTIFY your various SENSORS, heater elements...
- Test them for continuity (likely all good)

Find your defrost thermostat (sensors??)
Function: to keep DEFROST HEATERS from
getting HOT and melting interior plastics.
Characteristic: OPEN heater circuit at or below
room temperature (conduct at or near freezing).

Most likely issue: Defrost TIMERS... Most
modern REFRIGERATORS have replaced those
simple old timers with PCB (power control boards).
Very popular parts here in the USA...

Poured over all 12 pages of your "spares"
retailer... Nary a sign of a DEFROST TIMER nor
CONTROL BOARD... anywhere

Time for the villagers to get out the farming
implements & torches and yet again storm
those castles... (or call below)

RS21DABB- water dispenser will not dispense anymore. Mechanically intact but no flow! Rest of fridge/freezer perfect!


no water can be the early signs of the common issues with samsung rs21 models
what happens is the fridge cooler /defrost system goes faulty and freezers the water instead of chilling it , the best way to check is to take the 2 drawers out the bottom section of the fridge you will then be able to see the water bottle , if there's a lot of ice around the bottle then this would confirm a defrost issue , you can heat the bottle for 10 minutes or so with a hair dryer etc , if the water starts to work after this then you probably will have to call an engineer or fit the rs21 diy fridge repair kit

Fridge Fan noisey, Fridge temperature suspect and water dispenser works intermittantly. Model is the RS21DABB and was purchased in November 2006


Fan motor bearings bad if it is a high pitched noise. If the fan is not running up to its full speed it will affect the refrigerator temperature.

Blinking temperature control


You need to check the limit thermostat for the defrost in the back of the refrig section. I replace it with a standard bi-metal type from a Frigidaire to keep the problem from reoccuring.

I have a 2 year old SMEG FAB 32 Fridge/Freezer and the freezer section has suddenly lost temperature. Upper fridge section is fine but freezer not. I have emptied, kept door shut, turned dial up but no success.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

Wouldn't expect problems on a SMEG just 2 years old.


You could have a bad thermostat or the refrigerator could be low on Freon, make sure you clean off the exposed coils on the back of the fridge and underneath to free it from dust and dirt – use some type of a blower for underneath and the coils you can vacuum off or wipe off the coils, if not call a service tech to have a look @ the refrigerator – it might have a bad compressor

Does freezer cool like the cold food section? Did this suddenly happen, and frozen food began to thaw?  Most freezers control the cooling in the cold food section. The freezer must work fine before the cold food section will work fine. Let us know more, Thanks JT
