Refrigerator doesn't cool

I noticed a week ago that the ice cream in the freezer was rock hard. didn't think of it again until the milk wasnt cool as it had been. I tried to adjust the settings, but the refrigerator isn't cool at all today. Can someone give me some insight into what the problem might be??

Might be your condenser which removes the heat from the refrigeration system may be restricted. Clean under the unit from the front and back.

My brand new Samsung SR215 fridge freezes ice cream rock hard irrespective of the freezer setting - its currently on 1, I think it the 'freezer thermostat' may be faulty. Your opinion would be...


You maybe right but before suspecting the thermostat control, test it by varying to the higher number.
If still rock hard the freezer and you already change the control then it is already the culprit.Replace it with similar size and rating so it doesn't hazzle when it's time to change for replacement.
Good luck.

Freezer was freezing ice cream rock hard and refrigerator liquids( ie. milk, beer) was only a little cool. how should i adjust the number settings?


Don't do anything too quickly here. Move the freezer number one digit warmer and fridge one digit cooler today.

Check temp (and icecream) tomorrow. If not satisfied, move one more digit on the freezer or fridge until you are happy.

Need to pull away from wall and take the cover off to expose the compressor. Unplug and feel the compressor to see if cool or too hot to touch. If too hot to touch the start relay and start capacitor may be at fault and don't plug back in until we can fix the problem. There is also the possibility that the thermostat is broken and had turned the compressor off. Let me know if you want my help. I also will need your model number found on front and near floor behind the fresh food door seal. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezing problem


I think you mean that milk freezes, etc.

Probably bad thermocouple. In the refrigerators I'm familiar with, there is a thermocouple thermostat in the freezer. There is no measuring of refrigerator temperature; it just gets a portion of the cold freezer air.

If the thermostat is bad, then ice cream should be rock hard too, for it never quits cooling except on defrost cycle, three times per day.

Refrigerator on the fritz


The defroster is not working. Ice build up prevents cold air from the freezer chest from blowing into the lower part.

The way the defroster works is this: There is a defrost timer, probably found under the refrigerator at the front, that turns on the defroster three times per day or so. That turns on a heater nested among the freezer coils. It keeps heating until the defrost thermostat gets warm; then it quits defrosting.

I think your defrost timer doesn't turn. You can turn it with a screw driver till you hear a click. Now your ice compartment should be defrosting. With ice buildup it may need lots and lots of defrosting. You might not get cooling back into the lower part for awhile, till the ice buildup melts.

By the preceding, you should know if the defrost timer needs replacing.

If you should need to manually defrost the freezer coils, they are, I think, under the floor of the freezer. To defrost them, I'm told, a hair drier works better than boiling water. The defrost thermostat is in there too, a one inch unit with two wires. It should have no continuity warm, closed circuit frozen. If it has open circuit frozen, that would be your problem.

i tell people to judge the fridge and freezer by using your milk and ice cream everyone knowes how they like their milk and it is usually the first indicator of cooling problems and you want your ice cream firm but not so hard that you have to dig it out with a jack hammer and Etheline is a consideration
