1 Answer

Bought used side-by-side. How long should it take to cool down?

Has been almost 24 hours since it was brought here. Have both sides set to #7 and the freezer temp is 30 degrees and the refrigerator says 45 degrees and thermometers have said this for quite a while. How long should it take for them to cool down more?

It should have cooled down in just a number of hours. Call the people who sold you this and give it back if you can. It sounds like a lemon somebody wanted to get rid of.

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.

Refrigerator and freezer not cooling


When your refrigerator is running, but not cooling, here are some troubleshooting steps to help you identify and fix the problem.

First, give the refrigerator at least 24 hours to adjust to a new temperature setting.

If it still isn't cooling, check the air flow around the vents and make sure they are not blocked. Next, check the seal on the door by placing a dollar bill against the frame and closing the door on it. If you can remove the dollar bill easily, the refrigerator seal needs to be replaced.

Finally, check for dirt or dust build up on the condenser, as this will reduce the heat transfer your refrigerator needs to operate efficiently.

For more information and hints on working through these troubleshooting steps, see this Refrigerator not cooling video. I hope this helps!

It takes approx. 24 hours for a freezer to reach optimal temperature and to stabilize, only because in a 24 hour period the machine will shut off about three times for it's defrost cycle, but like you listed, freezing temperature will be reached in about 6 hours.

Freezer not cold


Check Compressor. If its too hot to hold your hand on it then
you may need a new compressor. Check condensor fan, and check
evaporator fan

You have a defrost problem. 3 parts: Timer (or "adaptive defrost control"), defrost heater and def. termination thermostat.Find the timer, it shoud be nehind the bottom front grille to the right on Amana (if you see a blck box under there with a sticker on it, it's the ADC model) turn the timer CW until it clicks. Take the back off the bottom of the freezer and listen. After 5-10 minutes if you hear the sound of the sound of water hitting a hot grill. If you hear this the heater and thermo are working and the problem is the timer/ADC. No hiss? Unplug fridge. Check thermo and heater for continuity. Replace the one that's open. If the heater's open, replace the thermo too: Maybe it didn't open soon emouhg and caused heater failure.

New refridge


The book says it can take 24 hours to start making ice, but normally only a couple of hours. Make sure the you have water coming to the fridge, then check on any warranty. Your fridge has a energy recomended setting that will be fine.

Fridge and freexer are not working


the fridge has to be set upright for about 24 hours before using again.  we set our fridge on its side to move and it did not work after we got to our new place.  we ended up getting rid of it.  our repairman said if we had let it reset itself, fluids and all, then plugged it in - it would have been fine --after 24 hrs.

Fridge and freezer will not cool down


69....hard to know from here. What heats up and becomes quite humid? Newly restarted refrigerators take about 12-24 hours to cool down. They should be opened very infrequently during that period, if possible.. Do you hear the compressor and fans? Have you properly set the cooling controls?
