Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Samsung fridge RS2545SH every 7 days freezes fridge coil.

I would like more advice on how to test and locate the thermostat. I am very familiar with using multimeters. This is an all digital display on the front that tells you the temps and stuff. Im not sure where the thermostat is located. I did find the defrost heater built into the evaporator coil in the fridge compartment. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a magic chef fridge that the coil keeps


Good day,
The defrost system is made up of 3 parts. The timer, the defrost thermostat and the main heater.
The most common item to fail is the defrost thermostat which is clipped to the top of the cooling coil, located behind the rear panel in the feezer problem. It looks like this.

It can be tested with an ohm meter and should read zero ohms.
It must be tested while still cold. If allowed to warm up the test will fail. If it tests O.K. then the only item left is the main heater.
It will usually test at less than 35 ohms. If it test infinity, then it will have to be replaced.
It may be a single heater or a set of 2 but without the model number I cannot give you that information.

I hope it is still in warranty for the five year sealed system repair. I am very familiar with your model and you can do some test and try forcing defrost but the biggest problem is someone engineered that model with the defrost heater woven into the evaporator coils.

Samsung RS2545SH coils freezing


Hey how's it going? I may have the info you need, but first I need you to go through a check list to see if there is a simple fix.
Check to see if there are any obstructions in the freezer drain (freezer drain located inside freezer compartment behind back panel lower right hand corner of the freezer coils) if there are obstructions or debris remove and clean with a mild dish washing detergent and water, check to see that water can drain freely. see if this helps.when the coils freeze is the ice flaky or is it frozen solid ice? if the ice is flaky it could mean that either the refridges/freezer door are left open to long "check your door gaskets or seals by closing the on a dollar bill if it pulls out easily with little to know resistance your door gaskets may need to be replaced. After you defrost the freezer coils did you notice if there was water in the condensor pan, if so good sign. (condensor pan: is the pan that collects the water that drips through the drain hole of the freezer compartment caused by the heating of the coil by the coil heater: water that enters the pan collects and is reused by the condensor fan by blowing warm air partly into the water and through the condensor coils causing them to cool.)if you still need to test your bi-metal therostat or your glass heater/ice pipe heater, you will need a multimeter and knowledge on the use of it.(IF YOU 'RE NOT NOT COMFORTABLE AROUND ELECTRONICS AND ELECTRICITY PLEASE CONTACT A QUALIFIED REPAIR SERVICE AND REMEMBER TO UNPLUG APPLIANCE BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS) for more info on how to test please reply,Good Luck, be safe..

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..

WARNING FRIDGE


does the freezer side freeze up also? i suspect if unit uses electronic sensors probably the thermostat sensors in the refrigerator section is defective. possibly there can be a thermostat board also you probably have to check diagrams.

Have a 2 year old SAMSUNG RS2545SH Side by Side


Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

Samsung RS2545SH Freezing Everything


Sounds like a thermostat problem. There will be a thermostat sensor inside the fridge usually inside the interior light housing.

Samsung side-by-side RS2545SH with several problems, possibly related


never buy a samsung appliance because you can not repair them. the company would like for you to buy a new one . my fridge the rs265labp freezes up in the fridge section and i have to take it apart once a month to defrost it. but i did find that if you keep a couple of boxes of baking soda in it and replace them often it helps to make the time between defrosting longer. hope this helps someone. i hope that samsung either goes out of business or straightens up
