Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
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
