The temperature sensor on my Samsung SRL3616B fridge freezer has a white connector. All spares internet sites offer a spare with a blue connector. The connectors are different (as well as colour). why do I have a white connector?

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. best way is to thaw unit out. Your vents are being blocked so no air flow is pushed down.

in the freezer section there is a 6 screws. unscrew them and remove the back panel. there will be 2 wires attached to the panels, remember where they go. you will see a metal evaporator which will be filled with ice. this is the problem. use a hairdryer to melt the ice. this is essential as you mustn't puncture the wall of the fridge with any sharp item. before replacing the panel ensure that everything is dry or ice will reform, and also ensure that the fan blades are turning properly or cold air will not be blown into the fridge.

Samsung rs21dabb defrost sensor problem

Hello Nigel Brown,

Defrost "sensor" problem... sounded pretty intriguing:
I could not resist... AMAZON & eBay abound in
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... (

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)

My Samsung RSH1DTMH Fridge Freezer the fan started making a strange noise like either hitting some ice or a bearing gone now noise stopped but temperature gone up to 12 from three can you help please ?

We had the same problem with our Samsung RSH1 fridge freezer. We bought a kit from a company called Appliance DIY Repairs, that were recommended to us by a friend. We fitted the kit. It was an absolute doddle - and considerably cheaper than getting an enginer out to fix it.

The freezer side of our Samsung SR-2026CVW is unable to hold a steady temperature, and some times the temperature rises to 0. Unpluging the mains for a few moments seems to cure the problem for a short...

you do not say how full/empty you keep the freezer.
pad out empty spaces with any spare foam (stops air movement when you open door) could be faulty temp sensor...or auto defrost sensor .......rare.

Fridge is freezing contents. Tried to reset and didn't work. The computer reads false temperatures

It sounds like the temperature sensor itself is faulty.
Alternatively the wires or connectors may be loose, broken or corroded.

If you list the make and model, I can look up a replacement for you, or visit your local retailer for supply information.
Most are replacable as spare parts.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. If it did, please spare a moment to rate as Fixya!

Temperature control

I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
