Fridge freezing up


Set your Ref/Freezer per the following:

Refrigerators:
36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.

You have to wait about 4 hours for everything to stabilize. If you are still having ice forming inside the freeezer then the rubber seal around the door is probably the problem. If they have a split, tear or crack, etc. it will let warm moist house air into the freezer and turn to ice as it cools. If this happens in the refrigerator it'll turn to water and collect in the bottom of the frig. New seals can cost around $60 per door.

If you pack too much food in the unit it may also cause freezing because the air needs to move around in there and food shouldn't block the vents in the back walls of the unit.

Hopefully this helps..

For no reason, my freezer went up to 56 degrees in a matter of 5-6 hours. I pulled the plug like the manual states because the temp was blinking. That solved the blinking. In 6 hours the temp dropped to 44...


You have either a sealed system problem or a control board problem. It's difficult to know which is which. You will need a qualified technician to determine what the problem is.
Good luck

At work one of our units gets too cold in the fridge and the tenant says it freezes her eggs.Do I need a new t stat?


if the eggs are placed directly where the cold air from the freezer enters the refirigerator section, they would freeze. The temp of air coming into the ref. sect. is about 12 degrees, by the time it fills the ref. section it is around 38 degrees. try moving the eggs to a middle shelf (just not on the top shelf), If that doesn't work then I would replace the thermostat.

Freezer used as a frige?


it may be possible. Turn the temperature on the lowest setting and see what happens. If it still freezes everything up then it is not posible. If it doesn't freeze everything , then check the temperature with any temp probe. It should run at somewhere between 36 and 38 degrees. This is the normal cool setting on a refrigerator.

Food freezing in refrigerator storage bins


produce has more water in it to freeze. Try turning down the temp in the fridge part of the unit you may try putting a termometer in there to gauge where it should be adjusted to, about 38-41 degrees is a safe temp for keeping food.

Refrigerator is too cold.


Your thermostat may be starting to go. Or the sensor could be dirty. Locate the sensor, and make sure ther is no dirt, dus or anything on the sensor. Also, if the fridge is kept to full it can cause feezing.

If it's to full, air flow is reduced, and that can cause certain sections to get colder while the are around the temp sensor is sill warmer,making the fridge stay on. The thermostat "thinks" the fridge is ... say 38 degrees, when the bottom sections that have less ariflow are actually getting below 32 degrees.

The display unit keeps flashing on the fridge side on my samsung RS20CCVS.


When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower the the set temperature for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree. some times those friges fail to calibrate them self tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds and replug it then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.

Temp


I've had my Samsung RS267 LASH side by side for almost 2 years now and the coils froze recently. The temperatures displayed - relating to the refirgerator side - bounce around when the coils freeze. My freezer thank goodness is still working properly. The repairman indicated that the heating element for the refrigerator coils was bad. Unfortunately he had to order the whole unit (coils, heating element, etc.) since he couldn't replace just the one part. Samsung takes their time sending the parts - we've been waiting for 10 days now. The Samsung warranty covers the compressor, evaporator, condensor, drier and connecting tube for 5 years parts and labor so we should becovered. You might be covered as well - depending on when you purchased your refrigerator. I did purchase a separate extended warranty from Lowes when I bought the refrigerator and I'm glad I did. My extended warranty included $250 in food spoilage covering our food loss due to the breakdown. Hope this helps......
