Question about Samsung 18.8 Cu. Ft. Bottom-Mount Refrigerator - Black

Open Question

Model # RB195BSBB We've been defrosting our refrigerator at least twice a month for the past few months. It's been icing up inside the refrigerator portion at the vents. We defrosted it again for at least 24 hours and after plugging it back in the display screen does not function. There is a blinking light on each screen (freezer and refrigerator) and no numbers. We are unable to control anything. None of the buttons function.

SOURCE: Freezer defrost all. RS2556

The most likely is that the door was not closed properly, this is very common on this model, what happens is that the door closes against the freezer contens and therefore appears closed, this allows warm air into the unit which starts to melt the ice, if this should happen again it is a good idea to completely defrost overnight with the doors open and then re start the next morning as ice often builds up behind the rear panel.

The freezer not running for several hours should not allow food to thaw. One thought is that the heater on the evaporator coils is not working.

SOURCE: fridge condensation - freezer thawing

OK now I'm wondering are theses numbers your getting 4 -9 the actual temps of the refrigerator and the freezer? and do they feel this cold and correct to you? I know the refrigerator side shouldn't be below 34 or so and definitely not below 32. If this is correct and the numbers are not settings but temps. (Now if you have a touch pad its electronic. If it has knobs it has a separate defrost and thermostat and are electro-mechanical)
If electronic Your control board and possibly defrost control are out.
It would more likely be the sensors going to the board(s) It will both sensors have the possibility of causing your problem. 1 will control the run of the compressor (and this one could and probably is connected to the inside coil) and 1 will control the air damper tween the refdg and freezer compartments, and may turn on the inside fan operation too.

(this would be my first suspect if these are degrees numbers). Look at the thermostat control see if it is attached to the indoor coil (usually the tube leavign the indoor section. If its not attached its not sensing the coil temp and when goes into defrost wala its not senmsing temps like its designed to do. Look for a broken clip or possible a plastic wire tie that holds this sensor in place.

Please get back to me with what you see - find on this look up.

Are you located in the USA? Reason I ask is the model number you gave does not com up I have about 100 models Samsung between RS2511 and RS2777SL and the number you gave comes up as a simple manual controls without digital readout. Something is wrong with your controls but until I can get the exact model or some photos of your refrigerator. I'm here to help you. Maybe I can email you a manual and you can match the refrigerator with your model. Sometimes the models are made in different locations and the numbers get lost in the translation. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Continuous knocking noise from ice maker. Ice maker has been off for past 3 months. Only thing that will make it stop is turning it off or unplugging it.


Hi Marcel,
Thank you for contacting fixya.

Our ice maker recently had its water inlet freeze up, preventing water from filling the trays. The mechanism kept dutifully trying to push nonexistent ice cubes into a bin that never filled up, which might account for the knocking noise in your case.
To defrost it we just unplugged the unit, took all the food out of the freezer section, and left the door open for a couple of hours. It wasn't long enough for any of the frozen food to defrost, and since we were careful to minimize opening the refrigerator section's door, the food in that part stayed cold enough to be safe as well.

Refrigerator leaks


If it a frost free fridge it should self defrost every 6 to 8 hours all by its self. If you see ice or frost buildup in side the freezer usually back wall harder to notice if the cooling fins are just under the freezer floor but above the fridge ceiling or better picture it as the fridges taint. Sounds like the fridge is having defrost problems and if it every once in awhile does go into defrost or you do it, all that water flows down a hose and out the back around the compressor. Heat from the compressor or other gadgets evaporate the water. If it only defrost a few times a year it is going to overflow the catch basin. Easy to check some times catch basin or drain hose move check back bottom or remove front cover look if bottom catch basin. Main fault is defrost timer stuck in run, location all over in or out, defrost element around cooling fins,defrost thermostat on cooling fins,wiring to / from / joining the last two.

sounds like the defrost heater might be going out, you can order a new one at marcone.com with your model number, very easy to do. You will want to have the unit unplugged for a day or so before you do it, all frost should be gone before you start

Our 20 month old frig in warm. We have turned the temp up twice yesterday and pulled away from the wall to insure proper ventilation but it is still warm this morning


Did you vacuum the condenser coil and make sure that the area is free of debri?

Most likely it is a problem on the inside. Do you have any ice build up in the freezer compartment? If so, ice could be telling the thermostat that all is well in thre refrigerator. Sometimes it is hard to see ice build up behind the back panel and you should take the food out, remove the shelves and remove the rear panel to get a good look. If there is ice there, you need to defrost your unit. Either unplug and leave the door open or hurry it up with a hair dryer - DON'T USE WATER TO DEFROST!

Once you have it defrosted, then you can plug it back in and check operation. If it worked and things start cooling down and freezing again, then you need to order the defrost assembly for your make and model because within a few weeks the ice will build up again and then you need to be ready to change the defrost assembly.

How do i turn off the fridge so as to defrost the lower drawer freezer? rb195bsbb. it does not defrost which I guess impacts the feeble amount of ice from my ice maker


Just pull the power cord or circuit breaker as the refrigerator portion will keep cold enough for the 30 minutes it takes. Use a hair dryer with hose to defrost the lower box, get plenty of towels and go to work.

Freezer building up with frost


Sounds like the defrosting system has a faulty timer/board, faulty heating element or bad electrical connections to these components.

sometimes ice makers get iced up inside the fill mechanism and causes this to happen. Have you tried defrosting the freezer? This may take care of your problem.
