I had the same problem with my 2630. Unplugged the power cord and pulled the small panel off on the rear of the unit. The fan was working. I noticed a lot of dust built up on the condensor- the cooling fins were full of it. I took my small shop vac and cleaned off all that I could on the the surface of the condensor. Thought I'd try blowing it out in case I missed any in the inner part of the condensor. Reversed the hose on the shop vac so it would blow air and turned it on. Dust blew everywhere! Just vacuuming it out wasn't enough. No more problems with the heat- that seems to have cleaned it out so that the fan can now pull air across the condensor to properly cool it down. Hope this helps.

I'm not suggesting that you do this because it could possibly burn out the fridges compressor or other components and there are possible risks of fire or shock,or bodily injury. unplug refriderator before working on it. PROCEED WITH CAUTION. so with this been said this is what I did I tested all motors in fridge- evaporator fan (good) compressor (good) ice dispensor (good) condensor fan (bad) it turned out to be a burnt out condensor fan (condensor fan) is located in the bottom right hand corner. remove metal vent cover.The motor is encased in a white plastic housing attached to the rectangular condensor coils remove the plastic housing and separate case and remove the fan and motor. First do a visual inspection then check for any obstructions or breakage of any fan blades, if non then check the fan by rotating the fan blade with one finger in a clockwise position, if blade does not turn or is hard to turn with one finger the fan is possibly burnt. test with a multimeter for resistance, if line is open the motor is burnt and shold be replace with the exact model. Sears has it in stock but it will cost you, I also checked online and found a fan motor for priced for $31.90 + s/h at REPAIRCLINIC.COM if it the same make and model as mine the model# is DA31-00103A and the part number is 1075195 please check you make and model and part #s before purchasing, you can find the model number normally on the wall inside refridge and the part # would be on the fan motor itself not the plastic motor housing. thats all the info I can give you, hope it's helpful Good luck, take care.
P.S. unplug all appliances before servicing, if you are not familliar with electronics or electricity please contact a qualified repair service. Thanks

I have Samsung fridge model RS267LBSH. The freezer works but why won't the frig side cool?


If the door temp is reading low then it will not cool as that is the temperature the fridge thinks it is at (regardless of the real temperature). Try setting the door temp lower and see if there is still a 14 degree difference between the 2 readings. If it does cool down further and the difference is the same then I would suspect the thermostat.

There is a stile heater around the door opening and sounds like it shorted out. This would be the smell you noticed. The plastic door trim should have felt exceptionally warm to the touch

My fridge is not getting as cold as before 6 years old freezer still frozen but cooling fan doesnt seem to be as fast as before dont hear the cracklin sound any more


Let me ask you something without your getting mad ... do you work as good today as you did 6 years ago?

As things, particularly electrical things, age, the value of the components deteriorates (like my knees did). Mechanical devices not only have their components ravaged by power outages, spikes and other punishment but they also collect dirt further complicating their operation.

What you should do is assure your frig is clean, no dust or dirt in the cooling fins, that it can breathe, that hopefully it doesn't live between the stove and the dishwasher. That the kids don't hold the door open for extended periods of time. That you don't put hot left overs into the frig. All internal ventilation is able to breathe ...

Just a few thoughs to help your frig enjoy a long life.

Thanks for your visit to day and please come again.

My samsung rs2630sh is very very hot to the touch


The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

Hot refrigerator


I had the exact same problem and got sick and tired of it. I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commision and they came out and photographed my refrigerator and asked questions about the fridge. If everyone who is having trouble would write the commission we might be able to get the fridge recalled. Even if you repaired it already, they want to know the problem and what you did about it. the web site is: www.cpsc.gov. Everyone please help out. The more people we get to respond the better.
