Question about Samsung CoolTech Plus / Basic Bottom Mount Refrigerator SR-L676EV

1 Answer

Blinking temperature control

Hi,

 

Yesterday my fridge started to warm, but freeze is working fine. I also noticed that temperature #s are blinking out side the door. Could someone tell me what is wrong w/ the fridge and how to fix it?



This problenmis related to Double door fridgte of Samsung. SR-32EMB. In the fridge the freezer is working very well. But the fridge is not cool. If we
keep the fridge off for three hours every day it works. It happened so more than a year back and one of the service engineer got it allright. Then he vanished and the problem was repeated just after six months. I could not get your service engineer. As such another person got it alright and some parts were changed. Still the same problem continued. I was told that all the Samsung Fridges have the problem and hence the sales in Rourkela has dropped. Can the technical problem be solved or should I dump the Double door fridge once for ever. It was purchased about 7 years back.

    I'm having the same problem, the temperature setting keeps rising, even when we try the 'power cool' button. The freezer seems to be working fine but the refridgerator is not. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks.

Fridge Temperature on control pannel is blinking


If the fridge is cool, the defrost timer has failed.
If the fridge is warm, the thermostat is usually the culprit.

I have a Bosch ksu 44 fridge/freezer which has stopped working - just a click,click,click from the back and the control board led's flash with each click (1.5second intervals) - is it the control...


Very common problem on that fridge and a easy fix: Replace the two big capacitors on the right side of the control PCB 1uF = 0,68uF 250V They lost their capacity causing bad uC supply and this strange LED blinking. Be aware that this blinking can be intermittent and the fridge appears to return to operation. But the uC suffer a lot of internal resets causing intermittent operation stops, low temperature and more not easy recognizable or strange mal functions. So, if You face that blinking normally the capacitors are gone. Some strange and intermittent behaviors of the fridge are also back routed to this PCB - Capacitor malfunction. So enjoy this 30min fix. The capacitors should not exceed US$2 in Your local electronic shop. If You don't want to spend the US$2 You can find the capacitors as a lucky guy in a old PC power supply.
For other more complex problems be aware that the controller board has a very nice and helpful self test option. You go in this mode holding the temperature select button of the refrigerator (not the freezer button) then switch the fridge on and stay on holding the temp button for more 10s. The self test sequence starts in the moment when You release the temp button.
LED 1: Checking sensors (Blinking=OK - Continues=NOK, something wrong)
LED 2: The Flap opens and close two times (Alarm LED shows the open and close position, so the led must go ON and OFF two times in accordance of the detected flap position from the internal reed contact. (So, no action on the Alarm LED no movement on the Flap or a defect Reed contact)
LED 3: Fan goes ON and OFF
LED 4: Drain Heater goes ON and OFF
LED 5: De- Dicer Heater goes ON and OFF
LED 6: Compressor goes ON and OFF
LED 7: End of test sequence - Initializing procedure of normal operation.
Every step takes 30s and the whole sequence take tree and a half minute. Be aware that the alarm LED is no malfunction indicator. It has only the indicator function for the sensors.
The fridge goes in the normal operation mode when he passed the sequence. No further actions necessary.
Be aware that every time when the fridge faced a total power lost he makes a short silent 30s check sequence. If he face a malfunction (Sensors or actuators) he doesn't start the compressor anyway to protect the fridge for further damage!!! So, this test sequence is a nice tool to check that the fridge is in the right conditions to start the working and even so to check the compressor function before maybe a unnecessary replacement .
With a second build in test option you can select and activate devices in the fridge. For this You hold the fast freeze button and switch the fridge on. After 10s release the button and you are in a manual test mode. With the temperature button select the component - Push the Fast freeze button to activate or deactivate. For example: Select LED6 (Compressor) with the temperature button, push the fast freeze button for ON and OFF. But I ask You to be careful on this test mode to avoid further damages. For example a blocked motor that You should release better by hand than blow up by a tricky fingertip. Enjoy this fix and feel free for Crtl C + Crtl V.

My refrigerator LG GM 313SC wasn't working yesterday, I disconnect the refrigerator and notice that the compresor was too hot, I reconnet the refrigerator at night and in the morning checked the compresor...


I have 2 of the LG GM 313SC. Purchased brand new here in the Caribbean (Dominica) Both units when I turned them on for the first time are making a 'clicking' noise that is happening together with blinking lights on the temperature control inside the fridge section.
It isn"t even turning on. The light inside is dim, which the manual says is an indication of a problem, and to call an electrician. I think not, they are brand new and behaving the same way.
Any suggestions

Blinking temperature control


You need to check the limit thermostat for the defrost in the back of the refrig section. I replace it with a standard bi-metal type from a Frigidaire to keep the problem from reoccuring.

SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING


the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

The refrigerator side is not cooling.


ALMOST DEFINATELY YOU WILL HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED AUGER(MOTOR)CONTROLLING THE AMOUNT OF CHILL ENTERING THE FRIDGE COMPARTMENT. IF YOU SET THE FRIDGE TO MINIMUM AND LISTEN CAREFULLY, THERE SHOULD BE A SOUND INDICATING THE AUGER IS WORKING.( OPENING AND CLOSING THE FLAP). SET TEMP. TO MAX AND LISTEN. IF NOTHING, IT COULS BE A DEFECTIVE MOTOR OR FAULTY THERMISTOR(TEMP. PROBE).
