Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a Samsung SRS595NTD side by side fridege freexer and the fridge part is not cool enough... the temp on the display says 3 degrees but an independent thermomoter says it is 12 degrees which will explain why food is going off. It makes a noise kind of like the unit is working overtime and when you open the door it the noise comes to a slow stop then starts again when you close the door. The freezer appears to work fine :)

SOURCE: THEFRIDGE/FREEXER MODEL NO. SR-S20208CSS HAS

Hello,

The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.

The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
The fan or blower has failed.
The coil is covered over with ice and blocks the air flow.

The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.
1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working

Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.

For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.

So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
The fan or blower
The timer device
The electric heater coil
By methodically checking these parts you can isolate your problem and fix it.

Hoping that this will solve the problem....

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

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

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

SOURCE: fridge has just started making loud noise and temp too high

sound like that you have a ice build up thats hitting your fan blade. Take and do a manual defrost on the frig side and be extra careful removing the cover in the back because there's 11 screws that have to come out before trying to remove the back poanel. Also if theres stillo ice in there what happens is that when you try to pull the back panel off it breaks off the stryrofam that samsung used for the air paths to cool the frig. so be extra carefull removing theses and if oyu do tear any and the airflow is not going the corect way you will drive yourself bonkers always defrosting htis unit. so heed my warning on this particular unit. its a great unit if you can psture what has to happen for the air flow to be correct. also put all of the screw back in correctly on the panel too. don't skip any because then the air flow is compromised. Good Luck and don't forget to rate the answer please. Haooy Neew Year!!!

I have a GE mdl PSI23SGRCSV side by side. initially the digital temp displays for both freezer and fridge sides went to 16 on freezer side and 43 on fridge side. This happened almost overnight it seemed....


it may be that your fridge is now low on freon the techs now do not know what to do the best thing to do is to call the tech and ask them to test the compressor pressures and see if it is low on charge. unless you know how to take the lower back panel off (the one that is probably cardboard) and feel the lines on the compressor and see if it is really cold and really hot that means that it is cooling properly but if it feels a little warm cominv out of the cooling side and hot on the return side then you need more freon.

Fridge is not cold


Side by side cooling units usually have 2 compressors, one for the freezer and one for the refrigerator. The refrigerator compressor may be bad, or not pulling enough power, or there may have been a leak in the tubing that the compressor uses to cool the unit with. To diagnose the problem, be aware of the noises the unit makes, and check to make sure it is a 2 compressor unit. If you only hear one compressor running then your compressor is bad, if you hear one running too often, then your tubing is bad, if the back of the refrigerator side is warm but the inside is not cooling down, then the compressor is not drawing enough power. Keep in mind that the radiant heat from the operational (presumably) freezer side may cause the refrigerator side to appear warm. (usually there is a type of wire backing with tubes running along it, these tubes should be mildly warm.)

The display unit keeps flashing on the fridge side on my samsung RS20CCVS.


When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower the the set temperature for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree. some times those friges fail to calibrate them self tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds and replug it then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.

The refrigerator side is not cooling.


ALMOST DEFINATELY YOU WILL HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED AUGER(MOTOR)CONTROLLING THE AMOUNT OF CHILL ENTERING THE FRIDGE COMPARTMENT. IF YOU SET THE FRIDGE TO MINIMUM AND LISTEN CAREFULLY, THERE SHOULD BE A SOUND INDICATING THE AUGER IS WORKING.( OPENING AND CLOSING THE FLAP). SET TEMP. TO MAX AND LISTEN. IF NOTHING, IT COULS BE A DEFECTIVE MOTOR OR FAULTY THERMISTOR(TEMP. PROBE).

Samsung side-by-side RS2545SH with several problems, possibly related


never buy a samsung appliance because you can not repair them. the company would like for you to buy a new one . my fridge the rs265labp freezes up in the fridge section and i have to take it apart once a month to defrost it. but i did find that if you keep a couple of boxes of baking soda in it and replace them often it helps to make the time between defrosting longer. hope this helps someone. i hope that samsung either goes out of business or straightens up

Fridge temp too high


probable cause is jammed fan. first take back panel off fridge, electrical connections are plug and socket. yoy may find a quite small build up of ice underneath the fan. melt it off and you should be ok. samsung are prone to this problem
