Question about Refrigerators
The front panel showing temperature and if the door is opened keeps changing even through the temperature in the fridge doesn't seem to change. Had someone to look at it on friday and he says it need a new motherboard. The fridge now keeps beeping all the time saying the fridge door is opened even through it's not.
go ahead and take and hold in the top two button until the unit blinks and resets the controller. Please don't rate this unitl the problem is solved because i can't come back and answer any more questions then. Also if this fix's please rate this solution please. Thanks for usin FixYa

i just had the same call today i ordered the damper control because it seems at times more air comes in and than at time like 30 seconds later nothing and the fan is working its not mine fridge but what you can do take the freezer side upper shells off the ice maker on(not necessery but i thought it was easier) and take off the little cover which is covering the damper it has two screws and look inside of the opening and you'll see a damper, turn up the fridge and see if the damper moves and you can turn down the fridge and see if the damper is moving if not you need a damper! good luck

First, the Samsung Refrigerator is the only fridge that has one compressor, but two different evaporators to operate the freezer and the refrigerator separately. Thus, you can have the bottom freezer working fine, while the fridge part will not.
The reason your fridge is not working is probably a faulty door switch in the refrigerator. The switch is malfunctioning, telling the computer that the door is open. Therefore you hear the door alarm go off in intervals, even though the door is actually closed. If the computer registers an open door, it will not pump cool air into the refrigerator, as that would be a waste of energy. All you need to do is replace the door switch. Until you get a new one, you can temporarily fix your fridge by simply removing the old switch altogether. You will not have any light in the fridge, however, it will cool again just fine until you are able to install the new switch (a simple plug-in contraption, by the way).
Hope this helps.

Thanks so much for the advice. I just gently pried the door sensor switch on my Samsung RB1855SL out with a butter knife and then pulled out the electrical connection and it fired up right away. It looks like some orange juice seeped in and corroded it. What a relief to have the fridge working again, not to mention to not have to listen to the beeping.
