Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Won't automatically restart to keep temp down on either side

Hi. I actually have a SRS616D.. with water, ice as for the 2630 and also a beverage compartment door in the fridge side. The fridge appears to behave fine and comes down to temp and turns off. But it won't come back on automatically and the temp display remains at the target temp. When the fridge is turned off and on again it displays actual temp and then runs until target temp is reached.
I have reasonable technical knowledge and basic electrical test gear (multimeter and CRO). If I can get access to a circuit or logic diagram I might be able to figure it out for myself but I expect one of you will go "Yeah - that's ..."
Thanks for looking at it. Doug

Hi.  I have the same problem.  As a temporary measure, I've bought a wall timer that I've set to turn off the fridge every 3 hours for a few minutes.  At least I don't have to constantly pull it out from the wall. Good luck. I'm still looking for a permanent solution !

On a side by side unit, the freezer actually cools the refrigerator side of the unit by the use of a "damper" door or switch. Check this between both doors for any ice blockage or damage and go from there. You might need to contact a professional to diagnose the entire unit if you don't "see" any issues.

Won't dispense ice


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

I have a Maytag side by side refrigerator model PSD2450GRW. The ice maker will not make ice but the water comes out front just fine. The freezer works and the ice maker is at the ON position. Thanks for...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Usually when an ice maker slows or stops ice production it is a symptom of an aitomatic defrosting problem. The freezer must maintain 14 - 16 Deg F for the ice maker to make ice. Any temp above that an ice production stops. If the freezer is in the 14 - 16 deg F temp range then the problem can be the thermostat in the ice maker or the inlet water valve.

Here is simple test you can do at home to see if the inlet water valve is working:
1. Unlpug the unit for at least 10 minutes.
2. Remove the fiber board cover on the back of the unit.
3. Locate the inlet water valve and SWITCH the 2 connectors on the inler water valve.
4. Open the freezer door and hold the light switch button depressed. (or tape it down)
5. Take a glass and attempt to draw water through the door. Do this just long enout to realize water is going into the ice-maker.

^- NOTE the water will actually be going into the icemaker and the water valve is good!

If you have water going into the ice maker when you try water in door then the problem is either an automatic defrosting problem or an ice maker problem.

MAKE SURE TO RESTORE THE INLET WATER VALVE CONNECTORS to their original positons!

The ice maker can be tested using this link:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

If the icemaker checks out good then the freezer is too warm and there is some reasonthat the freezer is warming up. Usually this is caused one of the following:
1. Defrost control board. Item 13 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=48135&diagram_id=28489467#d28489467

2. The defrost element and thermostat. Item 12 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=48135&diagram_id=28489469#d28489469

The wiring diagram can be found here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/frame_diagram.aspx?diagram_id=28489477&pkw_=basket&model_id=48135&NewWindow=1

Here is how I would approch troubleshooting on your unit:
1. Check out the icemaker using the american appliance link above.
2. Do a manual defrost by unplugging the unit and placeing a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (Makes a water mess!)
3. Return the unit to normal service for a few days.

If it starts making ice..... you have an automatic defrost problem or... the evaporator fan is not running at full speed.

One last note... anytime you unplug the unit you must wait about 15 minutes for the cooling system to stabilze or the compressor will NOT start.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Often ice maker issues are a symptom of an automatic defrosting problem OR a leaking (dripping / bypassing) ice maker water valve.

First off you should try and prove that there are no un-necessary water leakages by doing the following:

1. Turn the icemaker OFF
2. Remove the plastic line where it connects to the thru the cabinet water tube by pinching the clamp and pulling down on the plastic tube.
3. Place end of the plastic tube into a bucket for about 12 hours. At the end of 12 hours check the bucket for ANY water. If there is a noticable amount of water (more than 1 oz) the water valve is leaking water by the valve diaphram seat. The only remedy for this is to change the units water valve assy.

As far as a possible automatic defrosting problem..... soft ice cream is a symptom along with that of low ice production.

The evaporator coils get a substantial amount of ice build up on them and then the airflow in the freezer compartment is restricted resulting in a change in the freezer comprtment temp. If you do have an automatic defrosting problem you will soon notice noise from the evaporator fan as the ice build up encroaches into the fan blade path. Additionally the fresh food compartment will warm up.

The ice maker will not cycle until it reaches 16 to 15 deg F. The ice maker harvest cycle is started when the ice maker thermostat closes and advances the ice maker module.

Do the water in the bucket test and then look for signs of ice build up on the evaporator coils.

If neither of the above manifest / present then download this manual and follow the troubleshooting procedures:

No Ice on GE Side by SIde -TFX25JRYF-WW


Usually there is a big metal frame-switch that controls the flow of water. It is located right above the ice tub. If your ice tub is full the ice cubes push this metal switch up so as to stop water supply. If you remove the ice tub out, chances are that you have accidentally pushed the metal switch all the way up until it clicks and stays there. In this position, the ice mold water flow is permanently stopped.

Insert the tub again in its position slowly. Before fully inserting it, pull the metal switch down inside the empty tub. With the switch down, insert the ice tub back into position.

If that does not apply for your refridgerator, look for a similar water flow switch to turn back on the water flow.

Hope this helps
