Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. The evaporator lines pass though the cabinet and the heat generated from the cooling process is transmitted to the cabinet. Usually you would also not this same warm to the touch around the door of the unit. Years ago they used to use heating elements to keep condensation from forming around the doors when the door was opened. To make the units more energy efficient they now run the copper tubing around the doors to use to the heat from the refrigeration process to prevent condensation. Unless it is hot.... as in really hot to the touch I would not be concerned. If by chance you are not geting the normal operating temps and the unit is hotter than you thnk it should be then take a look at the condensor fan area and make sure the fan is running and that the condensor cooling tubing is free of lint and debris. (remove fiber board cover in back of the unit to check)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

My Samsung side by side RS2534WW is flashing 6 on freezer side and it feels like food is starting to thaw...what can I do?


needs to be minus-17 ..... 6 degrees should be fridge' temperature,
compressor may be hot and cut-out, pull away from wall at least 30cm and let some air to circulate behind to cool Compressor Motor
(possible Faulty Capacitor or Thermostat, )
it may also 'Reset' if turn fridge off for 10 minuites and back on again...have a listen and see if you can hear the Motor going?

My daughter bought back a mini amana fridge it seems too hot on the sides and its on 6 os that normal??


Sorry but I don't recognise the fridge brand. The internet suggests these are not the things called mini fridges but in reality are merely coolers so I guess it is a regular fridge designed to keep stuff between 2 and five degrees C.

Not sure what you mean by 6 os.

Conventional fridge design has a thing at the back that looks like a radiator. This condenser is prone to corrosion and is easily damaged resulting in the loss of refrigerant. Since it was decided all types of refrigerant gas is damaging to our atmosphere, manufacturers have been increasingly burying the radiator thing in the fridge casing where it is protected, often at the sides. Usually the condenser will become quite hot until the fridge interior is down to the required temperature when just maintaining the inside temperature it will vary between warm and cold if the door isn't opened much and the insulation and door seal is in good condition.

Burying the condenser(s) in the casing makes them less efficient at losing heat and so they will become hotter than the conventional old-fashioned design during the interior cooling stage..

I hope this helps and little.

Fridge not cooling; fridge temperature staying at 19c. power cool button not changing the temp.


On these models the technicians want to sell you circuit boards and other parts. These parts usually do not solve the problem.
First to get your fridge cold again. Remove all the drawers and shelves on bottom of fridge side and remove
rear panel to inspect coils. If coils are covered in clear ice like a solid block, then thaw/defrost this. A hair dryer helps.
Pour hot hot water into this area when finished until it runs out the drain at the back of fridge. The frozen solid drain is the problem. When finished use blocks to raise front of fridge so it leans slightly back. Supposedly this helps the drain from freezing again. The product is inherently defective and designed poorly, your problem is quite common.
We completely redesigned the drain on ours (not recommened for most people) and it works okay but I cannot wait to replace with a different brand.

My Samsun RS2534ww side by side refridgerator will not maintain temperature on the fridge side. It consistantly warms up to between 50 and 60 degrees despite resetting the thermostat.


First thing to try is Powering off the FF at the mains supply and leaving it standing for 30 minutes. Make sure that you do not open any of the doors or touch any of the controls during this time. Then reconnect the power and wait for 30 to 60 minutes to see if the fault remains or is cured. Try defrosting the FF as despite common belief these units are not totally frost free.

In side by sides if the freezer side is working OK and the fridge side is not working correctly it means that air ducting has iced up or the air vent from the freezing unit to the fridge compartment has stuck in the closed or partially closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be. If it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position and the fridge temperature will continue to fall and become the same as the freezer, thereby freezing the contents of the fridge compartment. It can also get stuck in another position so that if the temperature is adjusted on the front panel then nothing happens to the temperature in the fridge compartment. The vent, which is usually at the top of the fridge compartment on the side where it joins the freezer compartment, is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up. It can be come iced up by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. If the sync motor and vent are working OK then there may be a fault with the fridge temperature sensor or main on board controller that will mean that the sensor or the controller will need replacing.

Hot refrigerator


I had the exact same problem and got sick and tired of it. I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commision and they came out and photographed my refrigerator and asked questions about the fridge. If everyone who is having trouble would write the commission we might be able to get the fridge recalled. Even if you repaired it already, they want to know the problem and what you did about it. the web site is: www.cpsc.gov. Everyone please help out. The more people we get to respond the better.
