My Samsung SRL550DW keeps cutting out. If you turn the power off it restarts and works fine and then cuts out again after a few hours. Is this a main PCB problem. Prior to this happening the door chim


I have had the exact same issue and its not a samsung issue but any modern fridge with a defrost system in the freezer (fridge doesn't generally frost up as its not run at freezing temperatures.


You need to check a few things:
1. Clear the freezer draws out and clear any ice build up.
2. Be careful and unclip the first white plastic vent panel (hint: pull from the middle an inch or two then push the sides in so the tabs are pulled towards the middle and the panel pops out)
3. Unscrew and unclip the 2nd panel (holds the circulation fan) to view the freezer coils - you will need to unclip the power for the fan and the heating coil for the drip tray under the freezing coils.
4. This is where the issue usually is:

If the tray is full of ice then do the following. If not and you can poor water through the drain hole on the bottom, then the issue is a dead sensor or control board - seek professional advice or if your game, there are swap out kits you can buy.

So the drip tray is full of ice ? Unscrew the freezer coils from the back wall but DO NOT touch it any further in case you damage it. There should be some silver tape tape that holds the tray in place - remove it and then gently lift the coils up to allow the tray out. If its too full of ice, use a hair dryer or warm water to de-ice. Once the tray is out, defrost it completely and dry it - be careful not to damage the heating wires under the tray as this is used to deice it during a normal defrost cycle. Clear any remaining ice on the coils or along the back wall - Dry it well.

Usually the cause for the drip tray to freeze up is a blockage in the drain pipe that empties into the back of the fridge. Unscrew the back panel and you will see 2 soft plastic pipes drain water into a water tray. pull both off and clean/inspect. You will notice they pinch in the middle to stop air getting back in, but allows water to drip out. If they are blocked, they will back fill the internal drains and freeze, thus fooling the fridge into thinking it hasn't defrosted yet and not turning the compressor back on. (Since this ice is hidden at the back, it is the last to melt thus the freezer gets warmer waiting for the insulated ice near the drain to melt.

When I did my freezer, the water is dripping out slowly (it was cold) but once I removed the pipe, it emptied properly. inspection of the pipe showed dirt/insect blocking the pinched section of the pipe.

Reassemble the pieces in reverse order, ensuring the water was been dried with a cloth. My fridge/freezer hasn't skipped a beat since.

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

I have water leaking through the ceiling under where the Air con is. I have checked the drainage pipe and blown it clean but still getting water comng through the ceiling. Is there any wher else I can...


You need to determine if it is coming from your Air Handler. If it is, and you are confident that the drainage pipe is clear, then you could have a cracked condensate pan. I would suggest shutting the system off and opening it up to inspect the inside of your system. If there is ice present on the coil, check your filter and the cleanliness of the coil. If both are okay, call a contractor.....there could be a problem with airflow or refrigerant levels. If there is no ice present, check the bottom of the unit, if it is wet, it could be a leaking condensate pan (the part the drainage pipe taps into). You can shut the system off with the fan running and allow the inside to dry out......then begin pouring water into into the pan and watch to see if it leaks out...or if the unit is draining. If it is leaking, you should consult a contractor. Generally speaking, condensate pans cannot generally be repaired....and being that it is located in your attic, it's not worth the risk.
In Summary:
Ensure your air filter(s) is clean
Ensure your airflow is not impeded by closed or blocked off vents
Ensure your evaporator coil (located inside your unit) is not clogged with dirt/debris
Ensure your blower wheel is clean.
Ensure your condensate pan is not leaking.
If these steps do not help to correct the problem, contact a professional.

You will want to remove the panel in front of the air handler, usually a few 5/16 screws.
Once open then with a flashlight look down inside where the water collects in the condensate drain pan.
Verify that the pan is not full of water or algae build up.
If it is, then attach a wet vac to your drain outside and while it is pulling on the drain line spray some water inside till it is fully clean.
If it is not full of water then check the pvc pipes that are attached to the drain pan, they may have came loose and may need to be teflon taped and reconnected to the pan. Also verify there are no cracks in the pan.
Lastly inspect the bottom of the evaporator coil (Not the top) pull out the filter and make sure the coil is clean or water could drip down past the pan into your dwelling. Make sure as well that the insulation on your panel that covers the unit is intact and not worn away.

Good Luck!

Ice collecting on floor of freezer and water dripping inside frig


Most likely you have a blockage in the defrost drain that begins behind the rear panel in back of the freezer and ends up in a pan beneath the refrigerator were a fan blows warm air over the water to put it back into the air inside your home. You need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel inside the freezer and look at the condensate collector tray at bottom of the evaporator coil. Sometimes its ice blocking the hole because temperatures are too cold for the liquid to drain and it freezes before leaving the freezer and sometimes the line is blocked beyond the tray. Examine first and melt the ice and pour a warm solution of clorox and water in the pan and check if the amount ended up in the pan below the refrigerator. Sometimes a wet vacuum cleaner will help get what ever dislodged from the drain and sometimes we need to install something to warm the hole as the defrost takes place. But cleaning the drain is the best solution for now..Sea Breeze
