Water leaking on the floor. The unit cannot be opened to empty? What is wrong


Check to see if ice is forming inside. If so, check filter. Blocke filter restricts air flow and ice builds up on coils then melts slowly with heat from room.

We haave a samsung sisen by side model rs277. It is not making ice very fast, We can not find our manual. What might be wrong, or is there a way to make ice faster?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Please do elaborate a bit, what you exactly mean by "it is not making ice very fast". I assume that you want to say that its not cooling the way, it is used to be ( Please Correct me if I'm Wrong). That shows "poor cooling" symptom.
The Poor cooling that you are facing might be caused(In fact the most common reason) due to the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing/opening the panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer that is exactly the thing you quoted. Such a frost build-up usually shows a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets. The refrigerator is supposed/designed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited. Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system: The defrost timer The defrost thermostat (usually a bi-metallic switch) The defrost heater Also you need to clean the dust, lint from the condenser unit by using a condenser brush or a vacuum cleaner to remove all the dust from the unit (it is usually located at the back of the refrigerator). If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. If the problem still persists and the above quoted techniques/tips didn't work,You may need a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem.

Best of Luck,


Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,

Ice maker won't work and freezer is not freezing good


Take a look inside the freezer at the back wall. See if there is ice built up on it. If you have ice or frost on the panel, you either have a bad fan are you having a defrost problem. If I had to guess I would say a defrost problem. Unplug the fridge and remove the panel. Use a hair dryer to defrost the ice. There is a coil inside the ice so DO NOT TRY TO CHIP THE ICE OUT. just take the time and defrost it. After that is done, if you know how to use a multi-meter. You can check the heaters (Found inside the coils) to see if they have continuity. I would bet they don't. If I'm correct, you will need to replace the heater. Until you get the part or have someone to repair it, you can replace the panel, plug it back in and your fridge will work normally for around three days or until the coil builds ice back on it. This will give you time to either fix it or have someone to take care of it for you.

Ice building in freezer and water leaking in the fridge section


I will say that you may have to call someone in, but it is most likely the thermostat for the freezer, when the freezer reaches setpoint, that stat will kick the compressor off, but it sounds like yours is running until it the coils freeze, which brings another problem in hand is a dirty coil. Those two are your best bet. Best of luck!!

Ice build up on coil inside freezer


it can be two things the refrgerator probably has a small refrigerant leak therefore it ices up, or the defrosting heater on the begining of the coil is faulty.
