Hi, this model i believe has a calrod heater, and those usually dont go bad very often, its more than likely a bad defrost thermostat or control board, the thermostat is located in the freezer behind the back panel on the evaporator, the control board if it has one is going to be up in the control panel by the the thermostat, if it doesnt have a control board it will have a timer, I would change the timer and the thermostat in that case. It is also possible you have a bad heater which is also located in the freezer behind the back panel, under the evaporator, If you know how to use a meter you check this heater with an ohm meter. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator not cooling down frig or freezer


Is the compressor running? If so, feel the discharge line is the line cold? If not the unit is probably out of Freon, which means it will have a leak somewhere in the system.

Frig stopped working but freezer is good? Help... I am handy.


When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool.

Its defrost problem. Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.

Freezer has light frost in bak and frig is not cooling properly


Sounds like it is not defrosting . Either the defrost timer, heater or thermostat. Leave the bottom door open for 24 hours and will probably work again for about a week till repaired.

Freezer freezes but frig wont cool amana with freezer on the bottom


I couldn't find a repairman so I pulled the big thing away from the wall, took off the bottom front plate and the bottom rear plate and unplugged the big beast. Then using a refrigerator brush and a vacuum I carefully cleaned all the dustballs from the coils on the bottom. Then plugged it back in and in about 3 hours it was cooling normally again on a "4" setting.

Freezer goes through a cycle and get warm. The ice will start melting and create a mess when the freezer start to cool agian. Temperture in frig and freezer does not hold cool.


Unplug, empty, clean and let set for 24 hours to defrost the cooling coil that is froze solid overwhelming the heater and not letting it work. if the air can't circulate it will not cool. Check door gasket, or tell kids to stop holding the door open as this will cause it to frost up and cause the problem you're having.. Trust me, It works.

My frig is running but not cooling - frig is 50 degrees,freezer 40 degrees, cleaned the coils,etc GE side by side coils in bottom if frig side feel cool, "box" between freezer and frig side is not blowing...


I can help you diagnose the problems with your GE. Several things can cause these symptoms. All you need is a voltage meter patience and a want to, to repair and do it better than a paid technician. In most cases with the PSS26MSRSS the defrost heater is the cause for this. Look into rear of your freezer and back wall. Is Ice or frost building on rear wall? If yes unplug and prepair to remove contents in freezer compartment. Remove rear panel in freezer and use hair dryer to defrost ice until the defrost heater is visible. BRB , Sea Breeze
