Hello winkey,

Check if the freezer is packed to the hilt so as the packages cover the air vents in the rear of the freezer?
The freezer compartments share the cold air with the rest of the fridge and when blocked can upset the balance of cold air and the proper circulation.

How old is the refrigerator?
Let me know.


Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

SOURCE: sub zero freezer too warm

I believe the freezer has to get down to 7 degrees or lower for icemaker to harvest. Clean your condenser and blow it out. If that doe not fix it you will need service for sealed system

SOURCE: Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough

If the problem just gradually started happening, it's possibly the defrost cycle that's not working right. Fridge doesn't defrost, the cooling system ices up, and the cold air can no longer travel through the fridge.

You can tell that's the problem if you fully defrost the fridge (turn it off for a day), then start it up again. If it works OK for a while, then does the same thing after a few weeks that's what it is. Either way, you need a repair person to fix it, or you need to defrost it regularly, but then what do you do with your food while you do that???

SOURCE: Kenmore refrigerator freezer not freezing

The problem is in the defrost system.. You have a defrost heater in your freezer that comes on 3 times a day & melts the frost to keep your freezer frost free. That frost turns to water & runs down a drain & eventually goes to a drain pan located under the unit. On these models the hole for the drain is located directly under the evaparator fan. The drain hole is to far from the heater so the water settles & then freezes around the fan blades causing it to stop spinning. Its that fans job to circulate cold air from the freezer to the fridge, so now all the cold air is staying in your freezer. Last I knew they were workin on a solution to this but you need to contact the manufacturer. A temporary fix would be to unplug & then defrost the freezer by taking out the freezer panel & melting all the ice. Boiling water is effective. When you get the ice gone from around the fan you should be able to see the drain hole & be sure water runs freely down the hole. Put it back together then adjust the front legs of the fridge so the whole unit slopes back slightly causing the water to run back to that drain hole without settling.

My refrigerator display shows "Of" how do I get it to normal when I reset the temp for the fridge or freezer the display goes back to "Of"


I just had the same problem with my Samsung. OF means it is in demo mode. On my fridge I had to press "Energy Service" key and "Power Freeze" key simultaneously for at least 3 seconds to bring the fridge out of demo mode. Hope this helps.....

The freezer has been melting ice-cream


The first thing to do is, give it a FULL DEFROST, the old fashioned way. set it for defrost or unplug it and melt all of the ice out of the air tunnels below and behind the freezer. In the refrigerator section, you will find a hole that you can stick your finger into, normally in the wall next to the freezer. This has the defrost timer in it. Give it a full turn CLOCKWISE to make sure the contacts aren't stuck. When you are sure all the ice is melted and the water has been dried up, power it back up. It will run properly if nothing actually went bad. The next step, if it doesn't work right, is to replace the thermostat.

Freezer and ice maker quit working / The temp.display on the door is just flashing .


There may be a fan that moves cold air in the freezer and icemaker compartment(s).  If the fan freezes up the cold air will not circulate.  Since the fridge compartment is still cold it does not sound like a compressor problem.

You did all the right things!!

But this sounds like a bad thermostat.
or a bad control switch.

Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here!

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..

Freezer temp too high


Air must circulate in the freezer when working properly. I am guessing the recirculating vent in the freezer may be blocked which would not bring warmer air back to the coil to be cooled. As for the door, I theorize there may be too much negative pressure which pulls the door in while you were pulling out ... don't have solution yet.
