SOURCE: Samsung RS2556 - Refrigerator side is not cooling - Freezer is fine

Ok, what I found out is that there are codes built into the front panel. If you hold the top left and right buttons for 5 seconds, the fridge will reset. If there are no issues, the panel goes blank. If there is a dash in the right side of the panel, there is an issue with the fridge side. In the left, freezer side. The dash indicates a defrost problem. Only a couple of things can cause this. 1. Sensor 2. Heater 3. Fan, 4. control board.

SOURCE: fridge not cold

I think that I have a solution. Refridgerator side not cooling.
I read in the blogs that holding down the top two bottons(power cool & fridge) at the same time resets the refridgerator control panel.

I may have caused the problem by leaving the door open. If my above solution does not work, then I will defrost the frefrigerator just in case the coils are froze up. It works with my air conditioner.

SOURCE: high temp in fridge will not cool

The service manual shows that your model has a evaporator coil behind the rear wall of the fresh food section. We need to see if the evaporator is defrosting normally. If you are able to change the fresh food section temperature by lowering the freezers then the model is not the same as the model number above your post. Double check and I will send a service manual and tech sheet, Thanks Sea Breeze

No cool


TURN THE TEMP CONTROL DOWN. These don't work very well if set above "9". unplug for a while set temp control to off, make sure all ice is removed from freezer, plug back in and set temp control to about 7 - 8. These are primarily sold at home depot and cost very little ( $318.00 for the new model Vissani ). If it is less than 1 year old it is still under warranty from magic chef. If less than 5 years old the compressor is probably covered but you will have to pay labor, It is probably cheaper to buy a new one.

Whirlpool side by side GD25HAXNQ00 Light is out in fridge - including lights showing temp setting - it is not the bulb - what else can it be. Cooling is still fine with both fridge and freezer


you may need a board that is located on the rear of the fridge. pull the fridge out and unplug from outlet. locate the cover on rear and remove screws and open plastic cover. replace the board and new bulb. try this site and it is a bit pricey. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-electronic-control-board--item-number-ap4334000.aspx but to call a repair service it will be around 300.00

Well, its good that it is still cooling, however since you cannot adjust the temps, you do still have a problem, and one that may include the unit fails to cool properly.

My fridge keeps freezing how do i change the temp settings


Hi!!

You didn't mentioned brand and model of your fridge, so I will give you a general answer.

Usually the controls are in the fridge compartment, either on the right or back upper wall. Usually is one control for the freezer and another for the fridge. The normal settings should be about 1/3 of the dial's range, ie. If dial have 9 numbers, the setting should be between 3 and 4, depending on use and outside temp.

Wait 24 hrs. between adjustments to allow the system to stabilize.

.NOTE:
The Freezer Temp. Dial is the main temp. controller, if you set it too low, it may not have time to cool fridge side properly.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!!

Control panel not working Samsung refrigerator model rs2533sw. Not cooling.


I have a samsung refrigertor rs2555sl and my control panel stopped working after I turned the power off to the house (to install a light fixture elsewhere). There was one green light blinking on the refrigerator temp display.

Hold down the "power freeze" and "power cool" buttons at the same time for at least 8 seconds. This is a self diagnostic program. A number should appear on the refrigerator temp display (1-9)...it will hold for 30 seconds and then the panel should function again.

In my case the number that appeared was "3" which can indicate a multitude of things including a short circuit or power outage (which was it was for me).

Hope this helps!

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator


I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

The refrigerator side is not cooling.


ALMOST DEFINATELY YOU WILL HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED AUGER(MOTOR)CONTROLLING THE AMOUNT OF CHILL ENTERING THE FRIDGE COMPARTMENT. IF YOU SET THE FRIDGE TO MINIMUM AND LISTEN CAREFULLY, THERE SHOULD BE A SOUND INDICATING THE AUGER IS WORKING.( OPENING AND CLOSING THE FLAP). SET TEMP. TO MAX AND LISTEN. IF NOTHING, IT COULS BE A DEFECTIVE MOTOR OR FAULTY THERMISTOR(TEMP. PROBE).
