Refridge temp


Lets go over the way a sealed system works. There is a highj side and a low side. The low side is the side that passes through the evaporator coils inside the machine. Most times on the freezer side only, but sub zero has independent sealed systems for each side. Once it goes throug the evaporator its then condensed into a liquid state, the high side. This is also the hot side. Well, lower pressures in the low side would logically mean lower temperatures. So for the refridgerator not to freeze more freon is used on it to keep the low side pressure higher than normal, giving the cooling effect verses freezing. So, and here is the bad part, if you are seeing ice build up in the refridgerator side you have a freon leak some where allowing the pressure to be less than required to keep it above freezing. Call a service technician and depending on how the model, sub zero warranty is parts and labor covered for the first 6, and only parts from the 6-12 year.

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.



The ideal temp for the freezer is around 10 degrees F.
Look at the evaporator coils behind the rear cover inside the freezer and check the ice forming on the coils.

Temp in refridgerator is 40 degrees on bottom shelf with temp gage turned to coldest setting. Is this right?


the normal temperature for a refrigerator is 35-40 degrees F, so 40 at full cold setting is not correct.

If this is a side-by-side or top-freezer, make sure that the air vents between freezer and fridge are not blocked by food items or ice.

Make sure defroster operation is working normally as ice will block airflow.

Also, there is a circulating fan in most models that moves cold air from freezer to fridge. make sure that's working.

I have a side by side m#5825158271 type 7 it not making as mush ice as it did befor can you help


Check the temp inside the freezer. It needs to be around -10 degrees. If it's above 5 degrees the ice maker will not operate.
This is what it sounds like ot me. The freezer goes into defrost about every 8 to 10 hours. There is a termination thermostat that turns off the defrost heaters once the temp inside the freezer get to a set degree. If it's not working the heaters will stay on the duration the timer is allowing for defrost. This will heat the freezer above the 5 degrees, turning the ice maker off. The ice maker will not start to work again until the temp drops below 5 degrees again therefore it is staying off during the time the temp is above 5 degrees. I feel sure that this is why it's not making as much ice as it was. This may not make any since but I assure you that I work on these things for a living and I have seen this happen many times. If you would like to repair this your self. Reply back and I'll go through it with you step by step.

Freezer working only slightly. Refridgerator not working at all.


If you have ice build up behind the panel inside the freezer, you most likely have a bad defrost heater. You can remove the back inside panel of the freezer. Take a hair dryer and defrost the ice. When the ice is gone you can inspect the heaters. If they are not fixed it will continue to happen. When the coils ice over, first the freezer will get warmer. The first complaint is that the ice maker stops working. Then the ice cream starts melting (Due to the sugar in ice cream, it has to be around 0 degrees to stay froze solid). Then the fresh food section starts warming due to the fans not being able to force air into the fresh food section.

Freezer not maintaining temp


sounds like the evap thermistor took a ****. in the back of your freezer you have cover that sits over the refrigerator coil. under this coil sits a heater element that is turned on and off to defrost the refrigerator coil based on how long you've had the door open. the evap thermistor reads the temp inside the freezer.. close to the refrigerator coil.. and tells the heater element to turn off after it reaches a set temp where it can be sure that the ice has melted off the refrigeration coil which is about 60 deg. if your thermistor has taken a ****.. your heater element will only shut off based on the "fail safe" time (which is based on how long you've had your fridge door open) leading to a hot freezer.
i suspect your at home more on the weekend.. inside the fridge.. getting cold beers.. and that is why it ends up hotter on the weekend.
Cheers!

Refridgerator not cooling


is it side by side or freezer on top/bottom...check to see if the fan inside the freezer is running when the compressor is running..also check to see if ice is covering the evaporator coils.. the freezing should be even with a thin layer of ice/ not partically melted..sometimes the ice forms in the vents and stops the air flow...to review...check and see if fan is working in freezer
check to see if vents are clogged......good luck!!

Samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling


soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!
