Samsung SRS583HDP fridge not cooling. Side by side


Most likely the thermostat in the fridge, especially if it read 5 degrees until you reset it. Possibly the compressor in the fridge side as this fridge has twin cooling, or the circulating fan in the back of the fridge is frozen, which is a common problem as well.
Easiest things to try is to see if the fan is frozen and check if the fridge cooling is actually working. Turn off the fridge, remove the shelves, remove the 4 screws that hold in the bottom cover and the 2 screws that hold the water tank in. Cover should then come out a few inches. Reach behind and unplug the 2 plugs and pull out the cover. If the cover doesnt come out easily it may be glued to the back of the fridge by ice. Leave for a couple of hours and gently prize it off. Check for ice around the fan and that the fan spins freely. You could try sitting the cover inside the fridge, plug it in turn it back on for a few minutes (be careful) and then open the door and quickly look / listen to see if the fan is still spinning (it stops when you open the door). Leave the fridge off for a while until the ice disappears off the coils. Turn back on for half an hour. The coils should be icy again. Anything else call Samsung. If the deal in your country is the same as mine the fridge has a 2 year warranty but in the fine print the sealed compressor unit has five years on parts only. You could get the unit replaced for labour costs only. Check your warranty card.

My model rs2555sl samsung fridge does not start up after power outage.


Samsung RS2555Sl suddenly stoped working once the power is switched off, If switched on again, only the Ice making sensor light flickers. If both Pwercool and power freeze buttons are pressed for 12 seconds it stars and running normally. Will it automatically start working if I change the Ice making sensor?

I just had (have?) this same problem. I called out the repair man and in the end he suggested that I buy a new fridge because of all the problems reported with my model (RS2555SL) on the internet. Anyway, after a while I heard what sounded like a fan trying to spin on the fridge side. I unplugged the unit, removed the inside back panel on the fridge side. The entire coils and the fan had iced over. I removed all the ice, plugged the unit back in and it is now working. I will still replace this unit because I probably only corrected the symptom but the problem remains.

It might be that your fridge went into something called 'demo mode' that shuts the compressor down so as not to waste electricity on the showroom floor. The freezer and fridge sides both start to warm up, but the temperatures shown on the outside of the door never change, so you don't know you have a problem until you open the fridge or freezer and find you have a melted mess. My Samsung is 7 years old and we run into this problem frequently when our power is on and off, like just recently with hurricane Ike. Per the Samsung website, the cure for 'demo mode' is to unplug the fridge for 1 minute then plug it back in. They also suggested pressing Power Freeze and Freezer Temp together for 8 seconds until you hear a chime to cancel demo mode. Good luck. I really dislike this machine.

Samsung RS2533SW freezer not cooling problem


I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.

Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.

Samsung RS2630AWW freezer works/fridge does not


Chances are the fuse in the evaporator section is bad and won't go into defrost automatically.  Samsung refrigerators are junk!  Good luck getting anyone to service this one.

Samsung side by side refrigerator not working


I am somewhat of a fix-it guy and here is my take....I also have the same refridge with other problems, and have done alot of research and discussions with the local repair techs and Factory rep. Here we go: The Samsung models are very prone to problems arising from power fluctuation's that fry the motherboards. One problem may be that the defrost circuit fails and the unit freezes up causing a lack of cooling and loud banging of the compressor. To run a diagnostic of the unit, you need to press both power freeze buttons for 10 seconds beeps will sound and release, the dashes on the display showing if any circuits are bad.(self diagnostic) This is what the service guy will do then come in with the part and replace. With a bad board, the diagnostics reveals no problem and the service agent will just start replacing parts, at your expense! Also the part #'s will show discontinued but they just changed parts #'s.. Be careful, my dealer said all parts were no longer available....he was wrong! Motherboards are a bear, I believe my model has 3!Most techs are not familiar with Samsung and will not be able to correctly diagnose the problems, mine came out and said it! "We do not Know and the factory will not give us any idea what the problem is" We're sorry! That was 3 month ago, and now I have a beautiful yard fixture! a $1400.00 yard fixture!! hope this helps someone..
