Samsung SRS615DP Refrigerator

The temperature displays -16 and 3 degrees. After approx 10 hours the freezer display flashes. It is obvious that the temperature is higher than display indicates. Turn off the power and on again and it displays 4 and 14 degrees and the compressor cuts in and brings the temperature down to setpoint. It seems after set point is achieved the compressor does not start again as temperature rises until supply voltage is removed and then reinstated.

    Why is the temperature indicated as -16 and 3 degrees C when it is not correct. It indicates correctly when the power supply is toggled off then on.

  • moovonna Jul 10, 2008

    This refrigerator does not have a manual dial control Thermostat but a digital display of temperature.

  • moovonna Jul 11, 2008

    The fridge has more than the recommended clearance around it.

  • moovonna Jul 16, 2008

    Fan spins at first as fridge chills at first. fan stops after achieving correct temperature and is slow to restart resulting in a warm fridge.

  • moovonna Jul 19, 2008

    The frige can be working well and then after the door is opened the fan does not start again when door shut.

The temperature indicated is wrong because the thermostat sensor is faulty.
The faulty sensor (thermistor) send wrong info to display, and as it is also a thermic switch it turns off the compressor before it reaches temperature.
Insert model number here and get replacement part. On the website you also find info on replacement.

Did you check if the fridge is gassed propperlay or if the fan inseide it is spinning , please respond to these questions..

Posted on Jul 15, 2008

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 16, 2008

    Chech the thermostat (thermositor) I'm betting its manfunctioning.. It will proberally need to be replaced, You can hold a multimeter to and check the voltage as the fan spins, wait until it stops and the fridge starts to warm up and then check it again, basically it should keep current flowing when the fridge aint cold enough, it it wams up it should start sending ,more current to cool it down.. But this isnt the case, it isnt sending any so the fridge begins to warm up..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 19, 2008

    There is a small push sensor or switch on the door frame that when the door closes it closes the circuit. chect to see it isnt shorting or is working. you can push it in with your hand while the door is open, the fan shoulod come back on. HOLD down the switch and plug the fridge in, if it comes on then the switch is fine. chect the thermostat.

Hi,

Pls check the freezer fan motor by pressing on the door button while door is ajar. Without letting go of the door button, the fan should kick in after about 15 seconds. You can verify the fan working, should be audible or you can feel air out from the vents. Pls be patient and continue pressing on the door button, the fan must not stop. If it does after a minute or so, replace the fan.

As to your query error code > freezer display flashes, normally it should be freezer coil defrost error, however, pls check if the flashing horizontal segment is the middle or the bottom; middle defrost error while bottom would be fan error.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    As initially posted, pls change the fan.


  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Jul 19, 2008

    The existing fan works intermittently. When the temperature go down, it will fail. The refrigerator then will slowly warm up (including the fan. The cycle begins again. It will run initially, then it will stop as the fridge gets cold. You can try cleaning/lubricating the inside of the fan motor but that is a temporary/stopgap. I is relatively low cost and for all the trouble of opening the panel to gain access to clean, you might as well just replace the fan.

    Then I would most likely say it is the control board. Are you attempting to service this yourself? I would recommend a qualified technician I can assist you in finding one with your zip code.

Your issue can be explained by a faulty defrost timer which is causing the temperature to vary inside the refrigirator. When you unplug and plug it back in the circuit will be reset and hence it works correctly. The faulty display temperature can be explained by a faulty control board. Repairs Should run you about 300$ for the parts. If you have good experience in dealing with electronic circuits then i can see you through this repair. Otherwise you will have to purchase the parts and get a tech to replace them.

Good Luck!
Sai.

Dear Customer, Your fridge's Temperature controls maybe faulty and require replacements. Howevr before replacing the refrigerator's temperature controls, you should do some basic troubleshooting to make sure the problem stems from a defective control and not some other problem. The most obvious thing to check is that the refrigerator is plugged in and receiving power from the outlet. If it is running, but not cooling, it could be due to dirty condenser coils or a defective door seal. Once the coils are clean and the door seal has been checked, you can be pretty confident that the problem is the temperature controls. There are usually two control knobs, one that controls the temperature of the freezer and one that controls the refrigerator. Although they appear to be independent controls, it is important to understand that the cold air comes solely from the freezer area into the refrigerator compartment. The freezer control determines how much cold air the condenser produces while the refrigerator control adjusts the flow of cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment. If there is no cold air on either side, it is probably the freezer control that is at fault. The procedure to replace the control switch is the same for the refrigerator control and for the freezer control. Even though we have gone through this troubleshooting, it is still a good idea to test the control mechanism before replacing it. You will need a multitester and possibly needle-nose pliers and a screwdriver for the testing. First, unplug the refrigerator so you don't get shocked. Then, remove the temperature control's dial and/or housing. The dial will just pull straight off, but the housing may have screws holding it in place. After removing the housing, just let it hang by its wires. There should be two wires attached to the control. Label them before disconnecting so it is easier to put back together. Remove the wires by pulling on the slip-on connectors, not the wires themselves. Needle-nose pliers may be needed to remove these connectors from the terminals, especially if the refrigerator is old. Set the ohms setting on your multitester to X1 and attach one probe to each terminal. Turn the temperature control to off or to the warmest setting if there is no off position. The multitester should give you a reading of infinity if the control is on off and a reading of near infinity if there is no off position. Then turn the control to the coldest setting and retest. Now, the multitester should give you a reading of zero. If both of these tests are not passed, the control needs to be replaced. You already have the dial part of the temperature control disassembled, but there is also a temperature probe attached to it. Remove all fasteners holding on the existing probe and take note of the path of the probe. Install the new temperature probe along the same path as the original. Do not bend at a sharp angle and try to avoid bending more than necessary so the probe does not get damaged. Attach the refrigerator's wires to the new temperature, replacing the connectors if corroded. Replace the switch and any necessary housing screws you removed earlier. Plug in the refrigerator and set the temperature control to the midpoint setting. The refrigerator should start cooling down within one to two hours. This should solve the problem. Please rate this solution.Thank you..

    General Electric oven how to reset thermostat


    First of all, most oven thermometers move very slowly compared to the electronic sensors and controls on the oven. To make sure you are getting an accurate reading, the thermometer should be in the center of the oven, the oven should be preheated, then wait another 20 minutes after the preheat beep. If the temperature is less than 35 degrees higher or lower at this point, it can be adjusted via the controls. Usually on GE ovens you press and hold bake and broil at the same time until SF comes up in the display. Then press bake, then use the arrow keys to raise or lower the temperature setting. If the temperature is more than 35 degrees off, you may have a bad sensor, bad control board, or other problem.

    How close should the temp control hold the temp


    Generally the oven temperature will fluctuate as much as 30 degrees above or below the set temperature. The longer the oven is on, the less the temperature fluctuates. If you measure the highest and lowest temperatures readings with a thermometer after the oven has been preheated at least 20 minutes, you should come up with an average temperature somewhere within about 10 degrees of the set temperature. You can calibrate most ovens up to 35 degrees higher or lower if it is off. Any more than that requires replacing parts.

    F3 code and beeping


    F3 - F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor. Could be a result of:
    · contamination on terminals
    · pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
    · cold solder joint on control. · Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
    · Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
    · Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
    · Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace.
    If all above is ok replace control.

    I found capacitor c3 (68 uf 35 volt) had leaked and dried up, causing the display to fail. I unsoldered and tested c1, c4, c7, and made sure they were good, using a digital multimeter with the ability to test capacitors. C3 also had visible signs of leakage. Works like a charm again, and the display is bright like new!
