Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My 2545SH REf side iced up, fan was trapped in ice. I removed ice, cleaned it up and reinstalled. Ref now works fine but, condensation is coming from behind back panel leaking inside below bottom drawer. Is there a drip hole that may be clogged or some way for the cond to evaporate?

    Hi Bob; This unit 2544SH, does not have vents connecting the feez and ref. Is there a drain hole below
    the coils behind the plastic shroud on the ref side?

  • rpage96825 May 22, 2011

    This unit evaporates the cond water with a heater on top of the chiller coils. The heater is not working
    so, the cond freezes and then drips inside . There doesn't seem to be any drip hole. How can i
    test the heater coil circuit and is there fuse somewhere?

Condensation buildup comes from warm air
1st check the seal all the way around the doors
2nd check to see if there is vents connecting the freezer to the refrigerator
there is a drain hole on the bottom there is a good chance the hose is plugged
not to worry you can use a screw driver or a hanger with a small clothe raped
around it you shooed be able to pull the face plate off the front to see it better.

if you still have problems feel free to email me

hope this helps you

Top freezer cant freeze the fish and not cool


Make sure your 'Freezer Fan is working ... if not replace it. Then, you may have a 'Defrost Problem' .. check freezer rear wall for any ice build-up. If there is ice .. the ref will have to be shut down ... remove all freezer food and remove freezer rear wall (panel with freezer fan) de-ice evaporator coil with hair dryer. Check Defrost Heater for resistance value (approximately 20 ohms ... means it OK). Replace the Defrost Terminator ... (if Open on ohms check) ...recommend replacement as this part is very troublesome and is very inexpensive to buy. Make sure, Condenser Fan under ref is working ... if not replace it. Make sure Condenser Coil under refrigerator is clean of dust and dirt. If needed vacuum coil. Finally your Defrost Control assembly may be at fault and will need to be replaced. Good Luck!

I have a ge refridgerator side by side model gsh25kgmd bb. I bought it in 2002. The issue is, the ice maker. It has stoped working. I notices there was a lot ice build up in the back below the ice...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.

check and clean the condenser coil under the ref , remove the back to the ref if the compressor is real hot you need to put a fan behind the ref for a couple of hours until the compressor cools down then plug it back in.
