Samsung rb215lash not cooling

Weird the fridge is 9 months old and the temperature this morning was
62 degrees, I took everything out and set it to 38 degress and 3 hours later still 62.

Left it on and went to work, came home and it was down to 38 seems to be working, what is a reasonable cooling time, and do I have a bad part already?

I have a fridge that is older then me and it is still working.

SOURCE: Samsung RS2556 - Refrigerator side is not cooling - Freezer is fine

Ok, what I found out is that there are codes built into the front panel. If you hold the top left and right buttons for 5 seconds, the fridge will reset. If there are no issues, the panel goes blank. If there is a dash in the right side of the panel, there is an issue with the fridge side. In the left, freezer side. The dash indicates a defrost problem. Only a couple of things can cause this. 1. Sensor 2. Heater 3. Fan, 4. control board.

Yes this could be the problem. I would need more information to believe differently.

SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

Fridge not cold enough


The higher the number the colder the temp is supposed to be.

In order to prevent the formation of bacteria and other such organisms to affect food the way it does, the ideal temperature range of refrigerators has been mentioned here. Before we look at these settings, it is important to know the format in which temperatures are represented within a refrigerator. Commonly, you will notice a dial representing the figures 1-5 or 1-9 in the refrigerator, and a dial representing the letters A-E in the freezer. The ideal setting is usually in the middle of such figures.

If the dial is in such a format in your refrigerator, try a setting at 3 if the range is 1-5, and at 4 if the range is 1-9. For the freezer, a setting at C is suitable.

The ideal temperature in the refrigerator ranges between 34 degrees F - 38 degrees F or 1 degrees C - 3 degrees C. So that foods such as vegetables and fruits remain fresh and crisp, the temperature may be set around 38 degrees F or 3 degrees C.
The ideal temperature in the freezer ranges around 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) or lower.

CANNOT SET TEMPERATURE


Nominal tempretures for the refrigerator side are 36-38 degrees. Nominalk tempreture for the freezer section is 0-4 degrees. Your main board that controls your entire refrigeration can be found on this diagram as 1-5 http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/50039314-00004.png
What tempreture are you trying to achieve? By setting the unit colder you also cause the unit to work harder as well shortening the lifespan of your refrigeration compressor as well as other key parts that perform to make your unit produce cold. Some key things to look for are any type of freeze up on the rear wall of the freezer which is termed as a defrost issue and if you do have this issue message me back and I can instruct you to solve this situation. I await your reply
Thank you,
Rick

Have had this refrig. for several years and have had no problems until our 2 year old grandaughter played at the temperature controls about a week ago...The freezer has been set at -2 and the regrigerator...


Hi there

Samsung's child lock is easy to alter

Press the vacation and fridge temp buttons simultaneously and hold for 4 seconds, this will release the child lock, to reinstate the lock just repeat this. 4 seconds is quite a long time.

Hope this helps

Fridge temp set to 38 is blinking,,reset unit


I had a similar problem, paid a technician $90 to tell me to defrost the entire unit for 15-20 hours, and now it works like new. It is supposed to self defrost, but with poor circulation in the freezer (simply caused by too much stuff in there) the unit frosts up. This caused a rising temp in the freezer leading to inconsistent temps.

Anyone reading this with a similar issue, save your money and defrost it overnight. You should see a pool of water in the bottom of the freezer after defrost if this was the problem.

Refridgerator and Freezer Not Cooling (2 year old fridge)


Some of these had problems with the door light switches between the doors. They also control the fans. The top and bottom both have fans in back. Try opening top door and holding door light switch in. Wait for a couple minutes to see if fan comes on. Try with freezer too. If not coming on may need switch.

My samsung refrigerator model RB1855SL is experiencing a temperature sensor issue. The freezer target temp is set to zero degrees and the refrigerator to 38. The unit cools itself down to the target...


We've had tonza problems with ours too, kept building up frost, temperature sensor acted up as well. Piece of trash if you ask me. Never fixed it (did not want to throw money at it). Amazingly we just got a new one... another Samsung.... (with 4 yr extended warranty though this time!)
