If it is the thermostat from which you are turning it off and then back on again from it is possible that the thermostat is bad and in need of replacement. A thermostat turns off with temperature. Before it will turn back on for cooling the differential must be overcome. If it shuts off at 34°F it will not restart until its temperature reaches the higher built in differential temperature.

Also if you shut the refrigerator off while it is running you should not turn it back to the on position for five to 10 minutes. This is necessary to allow the pressures to equalize with-in the refrigeration system .

Hi I have pressed the vacation button on my side by side refrigerator/freezer as we are going away for 8 weeks. The display has lit up but there is no difference in the way the fridge is operating - same...


The settings will reset to a lower settting as the fridge/freezer will not be disturbed . So wait for the fridge to run and shut down and it will continue to run in this low mode to save power but to keep the food in prime condition. The fridge alone will not be shut down.

My ge profile fridge have a clogged frozen drain in the freezer.


Using the blow dryer is a common option but sometimes could be dangerous to certain machines. There is always a button to blow hot air for unclogging the ice in the freezer. But the best option is to turn the entire fridge off for at least 4-5 hrs. This keeps the internal machine safe from being damaged. Also the items in the fridge will not be damaged as cooling effect inside the fridge will be maintained for at least 6 hrs after the power is cut-off.Good luck with the machine and hope the answer is helpful.

Freezer and fridge don't cool at all. everything else works fine


Heya,
There is a fault with samsung fridges that when it goes on defrost it will not start the compressor or the fans again. If you turn on the power the fridge should run for a couple of hours and then stop if so you will need to get a tech out to order a samsung yellow sensor and a fridge defrost isolation sensor. If the fridge does not work at all if you would like i will talk you a couple of little checks before calling someone out.

Hope this helps

Ice forming on freezer


The drain is plugged. This fridge will defrost every 8 hrs or so. When it does , it will melt the frost that has built up on the evaporator. This melted frost will run down a drain under the evaporator to a drain in the bottom directly under the evaporator. When the drain gets plugged the water cannot drain out of the freezer compartment. After several defrost cycles the melted frost will overflow onto the freezer floor. When the fridge starts back up it will freez this water is the bottom of the fridge. sometimes this water that is now ice will melt on the next defrost cycle and actually run out into the floor. You will have to unplug the fridge or turn it off, then remove the cover to the evaporator. Get a hair dryer and melt the ice aruond the evaporator and drain. Once the ice is removed, check the drain and try to clear it. Once clear, replace everything but the shelves. Plug the fridge back in or turn it back on. Observe and listen for the evaporator fan. It should be running now. When working on the ice on the evaporator always be carefull. The defrost heater can be damaged if up push or pull on it too much.

How old is the fridge?

You did all the right things!!

But this sounds like a bad thermostat.
or a bad control switch.

Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here!
Let me know how you do! Or if you need something else.
We do have very good sponsors here on this site that do repair work, should you take this course!

Hot point Fridge/ freezer


All the cooling is in the freezer and the control in the fridge side only controls a damper to let in cold air as needed. To do what you want you have to replace the thermostat to a lower temp rated unit
