Question about Samsung Refrigerators

Open Question

I bought a model RF26XAERS bottom freezer/ French door Samsung efrigerator the end of May 2010 and today (Oct. 11, 2010) it stopped dispensing water. It sounds like the solenoid for the water engages (but not sure) and all I get is a drop of water about every 10 seconds. Now even when I'm not trying to dispense, it drips a drop of water every 1 - 2 minutes. Just to let you know, I had to turn off the water-box at the street to work on a faucet issue in an upstairs bathroom last Monday and all was fine until now. Please advise.

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: water dispenser

We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.

Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.

I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.

SOURCE: Reset Filter Indicator Light is on

Look for your model number from the sticker inside the fresh foods section of the refrigerator, usually on the liner near the door opening. Now, go to http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ to download a use and care manual for your model, as the reset procedure may vary by model. The filter is usually located at the very back right upper side of the fresh foods compartment, but again, it may vary by model.

Rather than self-closing, our refrigerator doors each stop about 4 inches short, requiring a strong push to close. Is this normal or problematic? No kidding ~ 41 views and no answer?!


it would seem as if the doors need fixing or that the icebox isnt leaned back enough to self close...but that is just my IMO sadly...

Water freezing in bottom freezer


The drain line is clogged, unplug. Remove the back panel being very careful not to cut yourself or damage the evaporator. Remove the ice not sharp or pointed objects for this, just hot water. Lay towels down and start pouring hot water until you hear it go down the drain.

Why is my Samsung RF26XAERS refrigerator repetitively chiming, and how can I fix it?


NOISE? from the fridge inside? or from the outside compressor? In overstressed compressor or low freon level will make weird noises? a bad fan in freezer will? Even seen bad ice makers make weird noises? if the ice making is hindered by obstructions?

Make sure the freezer is cold enough. If not this might cause problems of poor dispensing.
If your ice makes unit has a 'heater'build into it, it just might be that the heater in the tray does not work..if so, new ice tray dispenser.

I bought a kenmore refrigerator model 71303... a french door model with nothing on the doors (dispenser-wise) and a pull out drawer freezer. fits the space in my kitchen perfectly, however I just...


Unfortunately, 71303 is not a complete model number, even though that is how Sears lists the unit here: http://www.searsoutlet.com/22-7-cu-ft-French-Door-Bottom-Freezer-Refrigerator/d/product_details.jsp?pid=41106&mode=seeAll . However, most french door refrigerators can have the doors and freezer drawer removed. I think your model number will be 795.71303* (there are a few digits omitted). The manual is available here: http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/1103856L.pdf . The directions for removing the doors and freezer drawer start on page 11 (page 10 of the PDF).

The 795.71313 is a similar refrigerator. The directions to remove and replace the doors and freezer drawer is given starting on page 13 in the manual. See that manual here: http://c.shld.net/assets/docs/spin_prod_946454012.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(Kenmore refrigerators are made by other manufacturers. The three digit prefix in the model number is important to find the correct manual. A different French door refrigerator, 106.7200*, can have the doors removed. However, only the front of the freezer door comes off. That manual is here, http://c.shld.net/assets/own/spin_prod_734629012.pdf; see page 10 and subsequent pages.)

Water will not dispense--fairly new filter


Are you sure about that model number because I have the service manual for a RS265AA if you like. The water valve can be tested ao back with a multi-meter and should show 120 volts or your home voltage when someone presses the dispense water switch. If yes the voltage is present the water control valve is defective and will need replaced.Double check your model number because there are no Samsung refrigerators with the RF2 prefix RS2 is Samsung prefix. Let me know, what you find, Sea Breeze
