Question about Samsung RB2155SH Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

Samsung RB195BSSB Fridge is plenty cold, but freezer is at 43 degrees and won't get colder...

I went on the Samsung website and got some troubleshooting tips like unplugging the unit for 1 minute and cleaning out the coils with a vacuum, but I have had no luck in fixing it. Does this sound like a compressor problem? And if not, is it a problem with a sealed component? The samsung warranty is 5 years on sealed components and I don't have the cash to pay for a service call if it is not a sealed system.

I can have a service tech come to my house on Samsungs dime, but I really can't afford any surprises.

Thanks for any info you might be able to give

    From the Samsung website "sealed components"

    Compressor, evaporator,
    condenser, drier, connecting tubing

    These items are all covered for 5 years.

SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

I am sending you a link below to download the manual for your model. There are too many Q&A to do this here and on this page. The manual has some self diagnostic test you can do yourself through the control panel. These are very good refrigerators and they are backed by Maytag. The only problem is they are complex. You can try to find answers and if you have questions I will need to be contacted by email because Fixya has not been sending out anyones responses lately. They know about the problem. Sea Breeze

GE monogram refrigerator too cold


There is a balance between the freezer and fridge. Reduce the freezer temp and see what the fridge temp does. By reduce I
mean make the freezer warmer. If it is set too cold the fridge gets colder.

Amana refrigerator A4TXNWFWWO1 >top freezer, bottom fridge it's only 10 months old refrigerator won't get colder than 55 degrees freezer is working


There is something plugging the drain line in the freezer which carries water from the defrost cycle to your evap drain tray in the bottom of your fridge. The water has built up and froze plugging the flow of air from freezer to fridge.... find the line and unplug it and let fridge sit and thaw overnight and then some more.

My Samsung RB195BSSB bottom freezer model has recently developed an issue. The freezer will warm up to 21 degrees and not hold the previous temperature. Fridge is fine. Ice maker may not be making ice...


This sounds like there is a build up of ice on the evaporator. this will block the air flow and allow temperatures to rise.
The problem could be with;
\ the defrost timer
\ defrost heater
A technician can solve this for you

Freezer is too cold (-14 degrees) and fridge is too warm (51 degrees). The freezer keeps gettting colder but the fridge part keeps getting warmer.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. 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 temp sensor for the freezer may be reading the warm air in the fridge so is not cutting the compressor off.

The freezer is cold, but frig will only go down to 41-43 deg rang


Make sure both condenser and evaporator fans are running. Is it possible that you might have something blocking the air flow from the freezer to the fridge?! Can you hear the fan running up on top?

Freezer is ice cold, fridge won't cool lower than 42*


Sounds like it's not defrosting, so unplug open freezer back panel and use a hair dryer to melt ice from evaporator coil. Your refrigerator has a defrost timer on bottom near floor, but if freezer is frozen we need to defrost it so we can make sure there is not some other problem. Let me know when you are ready, Sea Breeze
