Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

Have a 2 year old SAMSUNG RS2545SH Side by Side

Fridge temp. light starts blinking and fridge warms up, the fridge temp won't go below 55* even after plugging and unplugging the fridge. Please help. my fridge temperature shows 17 degrees .for a brief time it will drop to 7 or so then goes back up.the freezer is fine.the bottom half of the fridge is cooler(there is a white plastic affair behind the bottom veg box which seems to be working)the top half seems to have no cooling effect at all.there was ice behind the deoderising box on the left hand side so i thought that may be the problem. i turned the power off for a while until the freezer went to about -5,then switched it back on but nothing changed.i believe the fridge was completely defrosted at this time as all the ice was gone.i would think that there is a fan somewhere but have no diagrams to show it.i did take the bottom access panel off at the back and that fan (cooling the motor i think) is working.any advice greatly appreciated

This type of problem occurs if the GAS in the cylinder become less or if it is get leaked due to some reasons like opening the doors of the fridge is left open for the long time unexpectedly ......

This is going to be a problem with either the thermostat control or the compressor relay from the freezer to frigde, either way, you will need to call a service tech.

Blinking Fridge Light and Both Fridge & Freezer Warming Up


I would say to contact Servall, a component source for all appliance repairs. They have a Web site and are helpful. You should also try the Web for any repair Manuals for your unit.

There are timers for the Defrost cycle. I am familiar with the old mechanical type, the blinking of the computer type is often in a Code which diagnoses the problem. You need the Manual to translate what the blinks mean.

Samsung fridge RS2545SH every 7 days freezes fridge coil.


Hey how yo doing? on most refriderator there are two important parts to keeping freezer from freezing over, they are the bimetal thermostat and ice pipe heater. The bimetal therostat is a preset thermostat that ranges from 54degrees farenheit to about 60, when the coils (inside the freezer compartment behind the back panel) reach the preset temp. it closes a circuit and send electricity to the ice pipe heater, to warm the freezer coils preventing from freezing over. if any one of those components fail, your freezer will continue to freeze solid until there is no more space for ice to build on coils decreasing air flow from the evaporator fan blowing air into your fridge.To test you will minor knowledge on using a multimeter.(REMEBER TO UNPLUG REFRIDGERATOR BEFORE SERVICING, IF YOU UNCOMFORTABLE WORKING ON APPLIANCE PLEASE CONTACT A PROFFESIONAL REPAIR SERVICE..) If you'd like to continue please respond.
GOOD LUCK, WORK SAFELY..

It might be that your fridge went into something called 'demo mode' that shuts the compressor down so as not to waste electricity on the showroom floor. The freezer and fridge sides both start to warm up, but the temperatures shown on the outside of the door never change, so you don't know you have a problem until you open the fridge or freezer and find you have a melted mess. My Samsung is 7 years old and we run into this problem frequently when our power is on and off, like just recently with hurricane Ike. Per the Samsung website, the cure for 'demo mode' is to unplug the fridge for 1 minute then plug it back in. They also suggested pressing Power Freeze and Freezer Temp together for 8 seconds until you hear a chime to cancel demo mode. Good luck. I really dislike this machine.

Frig not cooling


I had a same problem as what you described. I purchased mu Samsung RS2545SH side-by-side refridgerator from Costco 2 years ago. I contacted Sumsung, who then sent out a local/independently operated repair shop to come and perform the repair. After three trips by the repair shop and more than $400 in repair cost, the same problem persisted, and I'm stuck with a non-functional fridge for more than 2 weeks. Repeated calls to Samsung service line simply added more aggrevation and no results. The repair shop declared the fridge non-repairable, and my attempts to ask Samsung for a refund only get me a standard response: The executive review committee is reviewing your case!

Finally I simply had it, and hauled the fridge back to Costco, and thank goodness, the folks there were so kind and took back the broken fridge after 2 yrs from the purchase date. Thank you, Costco!

I do not recommend anyone to purchase a Samsung refridgerator. They may look nice on the outside, and maybe even a bit cheaper price. But you may very well be stuck with a non-working fridge in a year or two, and a warranty bureaucracy that will bog you down. And Samsung did not seem to care about standing behind their broken product. This will be the last Samsung product I will ever purchase.

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
