You have most likely experienced defrost issues with this fridge in the past. If not...you will...I have had nothing but trouble with this since I bought it. OK...hold down the ICE TYPE button at the same time as the FILTER RESET button for 10 seconds. The fridge will power back on and begin to cool again. Now, this is not a quick fix, but a diagnostic test!! Your fridge could power back off and do the same thing in 12 hours. If this happens, notice and take note of the indication lights on the front. I have defrosted my fridge many times and then out of nowhere it did this too. The problem is most likely the defrost sensor and has most likely never worked correctly in the first place; otherwise, there would not be a need to defrost manually. (I think the part should have been recalled!!) Anyway, this will give you the information that you need to tell the repairman. Most likely, the defrost system (sensor) will need to be changed out at a cost of approximately $200-300 plus labor, but still cheaper than a new fridge. This method may be used over again to keep your food from spoiling until you can get a repairman out. You may have difficulty in finding a repairman and most companies have gone to servicing only American made products (due to the parts being hard to get). I recommend a Good Housekeeping dealer!!! Otherwise, you can contact Samsung at 1-800-Samsung and they can refer you to someone in your area who can fix your fridge.

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: interactive display does not work

Hello dwhgone
Welcome to fixya,

You said, your interactive display does not work on model RB195BSBB

Lets try resetting the system in the following manor!

Lets try this,
Like with an error code.
This can reset the system !
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects most problems if they are not to serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works!
Waiting for your reply!

Please remember to leave a appropriate rating when you are done!

SOURCE: Samsung RS2533SW freezer not cooling problem

I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.

Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is normal...to a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.
If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about.

**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor...

i.e.

8f812cf.jpg
Your actual condensor fan assembly may differ in appearance, but generally this is what to look for.


But just so you know, the amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,

1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.

2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.

3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.

4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.

These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.

Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.

Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further.


Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.

Macmarkus :)

Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator not cooling down frig or freezer


Is the compressor running? If so, feel the discharge line is the line cold? If not the unit is probably out of Freon, which means it will have a leak somewhere in the system.

Samsung RB195BSBB bottom freezer not cooling


If the ice buildup was by the pipe just going into the evaporator in the freezer compartment and the suction line going into the compressor is warm to the touch and not cold and/or sweating you are low on freon.

If the entire evaporator was buried in ice, the ice covering is also serving as an insulator and preventing internal temps from going down any further. There is a problem with the self defrosting mechanism which is designed to prevent the ice buildup. Could be either the defrost timer, defrost thermostat or the defrost heating element. Hope that it is just the heater element. If you have an electronic module for the rest you are in for unpleasant surprise to replace the unit. Proprietary parts mucho expensive plus labor.

Until you fix it, just let the unit manually defrost (U can use a hair dryer to speed it up) and turn it back on again. It will work fine till the ice builds back up. Keep opening and closing of freezer compartment to minimum to minimize moisture laden air that enters compartment.

GE frig/freezer side by side about 5 yrs


Bad defrost timer, most likely. It is not defrosting the evaporator, and therefore, no air can be passed over it. Hope this helps
