Hi My fridge has suddenly stopped cooling. However the compressor is working. I have a single door samsung.

It is possible that the auto defrost timer is faulty and must be checked.Once the compresoor has been shut down and restarted the timer should shut down the compressor and defrost connecting the heaters.Hence check timer heater and also the thermostat(it must shut down at low setting).

Cooling side of fridge not cooling


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

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
