Question about Samsung RB1955 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

I just tried to run a self diagnostic test on my Samsung refrigerator by holding the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons down for several seconds. When I did this there was just one section of the display that lit up, the bottom half of the left "8". Can someone tell me what this error code relates to? The problem I am having is that the freezer section is not getting that cold. The refrigerator works fine, its just the freezer only gets down to about 32 degrees despite the temperature being set to much colder levels. Any thoughts on possible causes?

SOURCE: Samsung double door refrigerator/freezer is not

I just had (have?) this same problem. I called out the repair man and in the end he suggested that I buy a new fridge because of all the problems reported with my model (RS2555SL) on the internet. Anyway, after a while I heard what sounded like a fan trying to spin on the fridge side. I unplugged the unit, removed the inside back panel on the fridge side. The entire coils and the fan had iced over. I removed all the ice, plugged the unit back in and it is now working. I will still replace this unit because I probably only corrected the symptom but the problem remains.

SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

Where is the reset button on a hottpoint side by side refrigerator.


Self Diagnostics

To enter Self Diagnostic mode, both temperature control panel displays must be illuminated. A display can be illuminated by pressing an adjacent temperature adjustment button. When both displays are illuminated, set the freezer and refrigerator temperature settings to 5. Simultaneously press and hold all 4 temperature adjustment buttons for approximately 3 seconds. A flashing 0 in the refrigerator and freezer displays will indicate that the refrigerator is in Self Diagnostic mode.

To perform a self diagnostic test, locate the test in Table 2, Diagnostic Tests.

For temperature control panels with single-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers up and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers down. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test. Press the HOLD button for 3 seconds to begin the test.

For temperature control panels with 3-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers down and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers up. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test code. Press any button other than a temperature adjust button to begin the test.

When testing has been completed, do one of the following things:

• Enter code 1 5 to completely reset the system.
• Enter code 1 6 to exit diagnostic mode. The temperature control panel is reset automatically.
• Unplug the refrigerator for at least 10 seconds. Test mode will terminate when the refrigerator is plugged back in.

Test mode will terminate automatically after 15 minutes of inactivity.

Error code 88 88


The 88 88 code indicates a modem communication error in the refrigerator. This error is not applicable in the U.S. It should be ignored. The control will conduct a self diagnostic check when it is powered up. When this code is encountered it will just need to be cleared and the refrigerator will resume normal operation. To clear the code, press and hold the POWER FREEZE and POWER COOL buttons simultaneously. NOTE: Be sure to press these two buttons at EXACTLY the same time -- no sound will be heard when the buttons are both pressed properly). HOLD the buttons down for about 8 to 12 deliberate seconds until the control beeps and goes blank. Leave the control in this diagnostic test mode and allow it to exit after it times out in that mode. This will take several minutes. When the test mode clears the fault code 88 88 and returns to normal operation, you should be able to set the controls on the unit and it will work normally.

My fridge keeps beeping even though the door is shut. The fridge temperature indicator keeps going up and then down. Can you please tell me what's wrong?


If the reset procedures don't stop the beeping and you are out of warranty, here is an easy fix:
1- (You can unplug the fridge just to be cautious, but not necessary.) Remove the control panel from the front of the fridge. Mine pulls straight out without removing any screws.
2- On the back of the control panel is a black, round device - the only thing that pokes through the back of the panel. This device is small, maybe 1/2" in diameter and the same deep. (if it won't pop off easily, remove the 4 screws to remove the back cover for easier access.)
3- You will see a thin round disk inside. This is the speaker. Remove this disk, press the black speaker cover back on and press the control panel back into the front of the fridge.

All the controls will continue to work as before, but NO BEEPS!
Yea!

On the refer side we are getting a temp. reading of 67 degrees at the top as you go down it gets cooler to were in the crispers it is 33 degrees, have changed the thermistor and the evap fan motor what...


It could be a problem with the air damper but.... I doubt it.

Down load this manual and go to page 29 of the pdf file,
http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/SAM0074.pdf

You will see this:

Self-Diagnostics in the normal operation

2-1) To select this function, press Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons simultaneously for 8 seconds with an audible

tone.

2-2) In the self diagnostic mode, only corresponding LED segments will be illuminated (see the check list on the next

page)
2-3) After a 30 second illumination of error signal, the system will return to the normal operation.

Note the position of the LED in the temp windows and the side that it appears on. Then see the Control panel LED legend along with the corresponding position legend listed below listed on page 30 for interpetation. This should tell you what has failed.
Make sure to read the Details of each failure on page 30 also.

This is the legend.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Press the Power Cool and the Power Freeze buttons for 8 seconds it will enter the diagnostic mode.

Take a look at this link to determine what fault you have under
Step One diagnostics..

http://www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=209

There are 13 different faults than can be displayed. Each one of the LEDs in the picture under step one indicate what that fault is by the DIGIT position of the flashing LED. (Legend to the left of picture) Usually that fault is either a component or wiring problem.

The diagnostic test should pinpoint the problem.

Note that the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons are depressed for 8 seconds to clear any faults. It the fault remains it will reappear again.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Control panel not working Samsung refrigerator model rs2533sw. Not cooling.


I have a samsung refrigertor rs2555sl and my control panel stopped working after I turned the power off to the house (to install a light fixture elsewhere). There was one green light blinking on the refrigerator temp display.

Hold down the "power freeze" and "power cool" buttons at the same time for at least 8 seconds. This is a self diagnostic program. A number should appear on the refrigerator temp display (1-9)...it will hold for 30 seconds and then the panel should function again.

In my case the number that appeared was "3" which can indicate a multitude of things including a short circuit or power outage (which was it was for me).

Hope this helps!

That just worked for me too. Hold the power freeze and power cool buttons down at the same time and it will reset it after a power surge. All I had working was a light inside the door and a blinking green light on the display panel.
