There are no charging ports on the unit. If the unit is not cooling, check the freezer fan to be sure it's working first. Is the compressor running? Is the thermostat set to call for cooling? Is the defrost cycle ok? Is the condenser clean? Is power ok?

If there is a leak, you will need to install a line tap valve, recover the refrigerant from the unit first, repair the leak, install a permanent charging port, pull a vacuum, and then re-charge the system. Adding a charging valve or working on refrigeration appliances is not simple and requires EPA certification (in the USA).

If the appliance is over 10 years old, you may want to weigh repairs against the cost of replacement.

I have a samsung fridge/freezer. Production date 2007. Model#RS20NRSV5/XSA both the fridge an freezer not getting cold The lights are on but no cold air.An cant hear anything working at the back.


Your compressor is not working that's why its not cooling and you cant hear anything.
Possible cause:
  1. thermostat is set to off or defective
  2. defective capacitor that's why your compressor failed to run.
  3. defective compressor motor
  4. Freon leak or no freon at all.
Solution:
  1. check thermostat switch or relay
  2. check capacitor and wiring.
  3. check compressor motor.
  4. Check Freon pressures.

Your system works with a capacitor and contactor-relay to start the compressor. If you replace the contactor-relay that should solve your problem, if the compressor is okay.

My refrigerator is not cooling or freezing anymore


If the compressor is running, there may a refrigerant leak and if not the starting relay may have gone bad. if you can fix yourself, check starting relay and capacitor if there is one (capacitor). If you cannot fix yourself, call a serviceman.

It sounds like your compressor is having trouble starting, and over heating. this could be one of the following

  1. start relay is bad
  2. run capacitor is bad
  3. compressor run/start winding burned out
Try unplugging the unit for a few hours to let the compressor cool down. Then plug it back in and see if the compressor starts. If it starts after it has cooled down, then it is likely out or low on refrigerant. If its low or out of refrigerant it will run until it over heats, then kick out on thermal overload. This is because there is not enough cold refrigerant being pulled back into the compressor to keep it cool.

You might have to have a repairman check the charge of freon in the system.
