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.

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

GE Concept II fridge leaks inside fridge and then out to floor. Noticed that water is dripping in back under freezer where there is a cup-like part. What is the problem?


I had the same problem & I had to clean the water collector at
the back inside the fridge. It was was plugged with residue draining from the freezer. Make sure you clean the drainage pipe behind the fridge also & run some water though the whole system to clean out.
No problems for me after that.

Water dripping from underneath


The water is most likely coming from the condensation that's drained out of the refrigerator during the automatic defrost cycle.

Be sure the bottom fan is running and clean out the condensation tray. Warm air pulled across the condenser coils is supposed to evaporate the condensate water. If the fan is not running when the refrigerator cycles on, replace it. This would also result in the refrigerator running excessively without cycling off.

While you're working under the unit, be sure to clean off the coils too.

Good luck. Hope this was helpful.

My 40 l does not wan to keep stuff cold teh motor kicks in only mometarily, can it be in need of a gas refill and does it ide normal aircon gas? It can get cold by itself but if you stick it with drinks...


If The motor is switching on for short periods, you either have a faulty compressor or a blockage. My money is on a blockage. Once cover is removed to allow you to see the compressor, look for a small fat copper tube that has a small 1/4 inch copper pipe on one side and a thin capillary tube connected on the other side DRIER). Flex this very thin pipe connected to the small fat tube(DRIER) untill it breaks.Gas will come out. Wait untill all gas is out then reswitch on and see if compressor still continues to switch off on short intervals. If it can run for at least 1 min without switching off, then get a Refr.Tech to come and replace drier and regas unit.

Refrigerator drip


My SZ 550 (fridge over freezer) dripped constantly. Turned out to be a frozen drain tube, located 6 inches above the refigerator floor, centered on the back wall (cold side of refrigerator). Remove both trays and the lower glass shelf to see it. This tube runs down, behind the freezer, dumping refrigerator condensate in the pan below the freezer. If it's frozen the condensate leaks out the front of the fridge, down and onto the floor.
The fix, suggested elsewhere (not my idea) is quite simple and elegant. Thaw the tube (this will take an incredibly long time.) Fish a string (I used a piece of yarn) from the refrigerator (cold) side of the tube, down and out the other end, under the freezer. I was able to use a vacuum to suck the yarn through. Be creative. Once the fish line is in, tie a piece of nylon fishing line to the yarn and pull it through the tube. You have replaced the yarn with a stronger fishing line, which you can use to pull a piece of copper wire (I used common 14 gage romex, stripped of insulation through the drain tube. Leave the copper wire in the tube. If you wind the bottom end of the copper wire around some of the warm evaporator coils under the freezer the heat will be sufficient to keep the tube from freezing. I did this about a year ago and have had no problems since. Good luck.

Jenn-Air freezer leak


Apparently it is the drain behind the freezer panel on the inside and it is blocked. It needs to be unblocked and cleaned. You remove the food and the rear panel on the inside of the freezer. With a hair dryer (carefully) remove all ice build up and then unblock the drain line going to the pan under the refrigerator. The drain line can be cleaned with bi-carb and hot water (not boiling).

Sub-Zero 550 water dripping on right side of freezer forming ice on draw


I had a similar issue that started about a year ago with my Sub-Zero 550. My freezer gasket actually tore after several times of freezing closed. I thought that a new gasket would solve it, but a second but related problem developed where I was getting alot of condensation under the left side of the unit, with the water dripping onto the floor...eventually staining the hardwood floor in front of the unit.

I traced the problem to a clogged condensation drain pipe in the refrigerator. It is a corrugated pipe that drains a trough behind the crisper drawers. My pipe was clogged with black sludge and frozen down below. The condensation in the fridge would overflow out of the trough and leak below the crisper drawers, down out through the gasket.

To resolve, I used a piece of solid thin wire folded in half and twisted with a small loop at the end to fish out as much sludge as I could. Then squirted hot water into the pipe until it totally unclogged. I believe this will solve the problem without any need for a heater underneath the unit. The 550 worked fine for 4-5 years before this happened.
