Question about Samsung Refrigerators

1 Answer

We had a power circuit trip last night and my samsung SRS615DP refrigerator isn't working. The lights come on in the fridge but there is nothing on the digital panel except a small line flashing (the top line of one of the 8's under "refrigerator"). I'm sure I just need to reset it but can't work out (or find out) how. Any help would be appreciated.

HI. Unfortunately, this unit dose not have a "reset" command that can be easily initiated from the control interface. This will need to be done by preforming a hard reset. This will consist of a procedure called power cycling. To achieve this , simply, unplug the unit for five minutes. This will reset the PCB. Once the five minutes are up, carefully, reintroduce power to the unit and observe.

If you experience the same malfunctions, this will confirm that the main PCB board has failed. This main board will need to be replaced, due to shorted logic sector and possible relay damage. This is quite common during a power surge(circuit trip).

REFRIGERATOR HAS STOPPED WORKING , NOTHING RUNS, NO LIGHTS NOTHING


If everything is dead the first thing you have to establish is that the unit is receiving electrical power. It is far fetched for every component to go bad at the same time!!!!!!

Power surge brand new maytag fridge not cooling


That power surge probably burnt out the guse on the circuit board. I suspect you may need a new board unless you know an electricity geek who can replace the fuse. New I would check your warranty. That circuit board might cost $200. plus..

Two things to check: 1.) Check to see if condenser coil is clean, it may be packed with dirt. This is the coil located under the refrigerator. 2.) The defrost heater may have burned out causing the breaker to trip. This heater is located on the evaporator coil located inside the refrigerator.

My SAMSUNG SIDE BY SIDE fridge model number SRS615DP keeps shorting out my circuit breaker after a few munutes...why?


There is a ground fault in it, meaning that there is leakage of electric current from the hot wire to ground. It may be due to moisture in the wiring. Take care because the metal frame may be live, and call a service tech.

If the RV was level when it did not function. First you will want to open the rear vent of the fridge on the RV and check for a yellow residue above the burner area. If you do see that, then you will require a replacement cooling unit because the pipe ruptured. It is common in all new RV fridges that the cooling units lets go within 3 to 7 years. Check out ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold the replacement cooling unit can be purchased through Ebay Dometic RM2652 Brand New Manufactured Cooling Units LIFETIME WARRANTY

The power shuts off when i plug the fridge


Before it started tripping the circuit breaker what was your refrigerator doing that was not normal? Usually, before something fails massively it will give you hints it is coming. Did your ice maker or lights stop working? Has the compressor been running an excessively long time?

What trips a breaker is the unit drawing more current that what the breaker is listed at. So something in the unit has shorted to cause this to happen. Although the first thing we check in a situation like this is the compressor circuit it isn't always the cause.

Fridge freezer shorting out electrics


The cause of this situation could simply be an overloaded circuit. Homes are built with dedicated circuit for fridge only now because of this. If you notice power outage in other rooms or other appliances in kitchen then the circuit affected,I.E. other outlets affected need the load lightened. If it is a dedicated circuit then could be faulty breaker or possibly altered wiring could be cause.These have to be ruled out before you will know for sure. If it isn,t dedicated outlet for fridge only, just plugging in a light could overload loaded circuit.

My fridge has stopped working on my samsung RS21FCNS can you help.


  • First off check the power. You should check to see if the receptacle is working properly, use a circuit tester for this. If the receptacle doesn't’t work, check for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.
  • Other problems that could be associated with a fridge not working include, an electrical cord that is damaged.
