Question about Samsung SRS20DTD Side by Side Refrigerator
Has samsung recalled there side by side refrigerator models rs253babb model. Is it a design flaw which doesn't allow for the proper drainage? Which in turn causes icing & not cooling. I was told this by a tech. Thanks.
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

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!

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...
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.
