Open the evaporator coil access panel in the back wall area of the freezer and see if its iced up,is so take a hair dryer and defrost it,then you may need a new defrost heater element or defrost control be it either timer or adaptive,if the coil is covered with ice it cannot cool the unit properly even if the fan is operating

Hi there I ve got a Samsung fridge model RL34SCSW1 my freezer is working fine it's just the fridge bit is not cooling?


Good day, please check at the back, at the bottom where the compressor is located for the pencil dryer(as in photo). Get a nice firm grip on it just be careful and feel the temp if it's cold or one side is hot and the other side cold the dryer is block. Otherwise feel the thickest pipe running into the compressor it should be cold if the fridge has been running for a while and the thin copper pipe existing the compressor should be hot. If the thin pipe is freezing up with a thick layer of ice and the dryer as some med-temp then there's a gas leak. If the thin copper pipe is very hot and the dryer has no temp then there's a blockage but if the thin copper pipe feels med-temp and the thick copper pipe more or less the same but a bit cooler the compressor is not pumping also feel if the compressor is running. If dryer as a warmth temp and the thin copper pipe is hot and the thick one very cold(when tipping your finger on your tongue and pressing it against the pipe your finger should stick a bit) if all checks out then it's the thermostat switching the compressor off at the rong temp.

Personal opinion in this case I believe it's a blocked dryer or gas leakage.

Regards

The compressor in the fridge energises for a constant 30 mins in every 90 mins. Is this normal?


depending on door seals and the number of times the door is opened and the temp setting on the thermostat and the positioning of the fridge it could be considered normal
see if you can get an idea of the cycle times at night when the fridge is not being opened and the room is cooler if the temp setting is close to 32 or zero celsius then the fridge works hard to maintain that low setting but if the setting is higher say 5 degrees celsius it runs a lot easier
the problem with fridges is that every time the door is opened , all the cold air falls on the floor and the motor has to run to fill the fridge with cold air again
fridges that are full of food maintain their cold better than empty fridges

Stumped by Damper Control malfunction symptoms


U seem to have a good handle on things but the flapper door is still not operating properly. Rather than create more agita for yourself, you just might want to consider replacing the assembly if not that expensive. OR experiment with various flapper door openings till you get a more reasonable refrig temp since 25 is too low. Aim for 35 - 38 degrees.

Hotpoint RLA51 fridge keeps freezing up


A fridge makes cold air in the freezer only and blows it into the fridge throu a little air door with a small fan, one of your temerature adjustments will open and close this little door and the other ajustment (the thrmostate) will turn on and off the compressor at what ever temperature you have it set for. if the little door is closed to much the cold air can not get into the fridge fast enough to make the temperature cold enough to turn of the thermostate. This will cause items to freeze near the air door as the air comming out of it will be something like -20C. to fix this it sometimes helps to open this little door more... something like "freezer temp warmer" and also to turn the "fridge temp warmer". if that does not do it, then the thermostate may be faulty, to test it slowly turn it down untill the fridge turns off, if it only turns off at the off position, replace it. also one last thing , sometimes the airdoor can frost up and restrict the air from blowing into the fridge, so you can unplug the fridge and leave the doors open for the weekend and let everything thaw out. then set all the controls for normal and plug back in. Make sure you do not leave the unit plugged in or sometimes the little door light can get so hot it may melt the plastic lining in the fridge.

My Baumatic larder fridge won't go cold the fan and the compressor is working but the temp won't go below 16 degrees


Check to see if there is ice built up around the door preventing it from closing and sealing properly. This can happen if the door isn't closed all the way at times.

What is the temp for overheating ? My boxster is having around 110c during a hot day


Normal engine operating temperatures are typically in the range of
75 - 90 Degrees C. 110 C is certainly overheating.

Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough


If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.
