R-600 is a hydrocarbon refrigerant which I have not had the opportunity to work on in the US. However the operating principles are the same as other refrigerants. Your system may have a leak and lost its charge. Service required.

What could be the problem with my Magic Chef mini fridge model number MCBR465S. It comes on when I plug it in but not cool at all, and the compressor hot, could I trouble shoot and how,freon? Thx

If the compressor is actually running and there is no refrigeration, I would suggest it has a gas leak and that's why it isn't cooling. Depending on what type of refrigerant is in it, it may not be worth repairing as its only a small bar fridge? Check the rating plate to see if its R12 (Older fridges) or R134A . If the unit is less than 5 years old, it may be operating on R32 or R600 (Butane refrigerant gases) If its only a couple of years old, it may still be under Manufacturer warranty. Most fridges carry a 2 year warranty on everything and up to 5 years parts warranty on what is known as the "Sealed system"

Can I replace the R600 compressor with a R134a compressor

Not advisable . R600 is 20% more energy efficient and as well as the condenser and evaporator are matched(sized) to only refrigerant.

I just got back from a 6 month trip and the samsung fridge I have seems to be taking a while to cool. RS2630SH. The fan on the condenser is working fine. Any thoughts?

Before you went for the holidays if the cooling was fine and now you are experiencing this fault, there is a possibility that your compressor has a problem maybe with the pressure valves or the absence of gas/ gas pressure. If even after running for a couple of days the fridge is not retaining the earleir cooling, shut it off for another 8 hours and try again. If this does not help, you will need to check your compressor for pumping and also the pressure of the gas. Hope you try this out. Good day

Samsung RS2630 freezer not cold and inside panels hot what do I need to do to fix it ?

Hi,the problem with your freezer is the compressor,the compressor is either short of freon gas or the pumping pressure is too low to pump gas through the entire unit.however,this requires the expertise of a professional. I will suggest you contact the nearest freezer technician to help you fix it.
Thanks and take care

Noisy Refrigerator

hi there i'am affraid that the noise you are getting from your fridge is normal this is due to the illegal use of r12 refridgerant gas as from 1999, the replacement gas is r600 which is ozone friendly but can be rather noisy giving off a whiriny' hissing,groaning and some times like water falling.

hope this is of some help
