We found that the problem was the sensor that regulates the evaporator flap. Replace that and it should cure the problem. Each light represents a certain sensor in the fridge, if that sensor isn't working, the according light will flash. If you go to a Samsung agent, they will be able to assist you.

Westinghouse fridge turns it self off to defrost is this normal


If your second hand fridge is over 5 years old, then it might be time to buy a new one. Most fridges nowadays have a lifespan of 5-8 years the most. Danni

Our fridges problem is that when we started the fridge after 3-4 mins the fridge stopped working its on standby but the cooler/fans stops working.


I am trying to understand your refrigerators problem. Has it been cooling normally before this happens? Do you hear any clicking? Also what model is your Samsung? The model number should be around the fresh food section door frame. Are you saying the the refrigerator tries to start but the fans also turn off after the first 4 seconds?
Thanks Sea Breeze

Maytag fridge stops cooling, then 1-2 days later restarts on own


The buzzing is typically gonna be the compressor trying to start and failing. Am I right in saying the fridge is at least 12 or more years old?

Maytag used to use a compressor made by Tecumseh and they had a problem with starting. They would buzz and sometimes start back up. Sometimes in a few tries or a few days or never. It would continue to re try every couple minutes and last 5-10 seconds.

I would verify if it is a Tecumseh or an Embraco compressor then make your decision.

A service tech should be able to figure this out pretty easily! Normally what I would do is if I go in and it is running then I would turn it off and back on right away. the fridge will go through its restart sequence and typically make its noises then. Hopefully you are not being charged every time they come out

Compressors are the most expensive repair! and on these I always replace the discharge tube since they tend to rot out from sitting in the drain pan.

Let us know what you find!

Motor goes on/off every few second.


You have problem with the motor compressor,it is trying to start, but cannot for one reason or another, could be siezed motor, sticking start relay.etc'
It is stopping and starting due to the motor overload device cutting in and out. it acts as a safety device.
This is usually associated with a serious malfunction..Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fridge not cooling contents


YOU DIDN'T STATE WHAT MAKE YOUR UNIT IS, HOWEVER IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS THE OVERLOAD COMPONET THAT MOUNTS ON THE COMPRERSSOR TO START IT. TRY THAT FIRST IT IS THE MOST COMMON.

Fridge stopped working suddenly


Sounds like the relay (start device) on the compressor has failed.  This is a very common problem especially for models that are 3-5 yrs old.  I would replace that first.
