I have a Samsung side by side fridge freezer where the digital panel shows no digits except a minus / negative mark, as shown like this " - ". When the fridge doors are opened the lights go on, unfortunately there is no sign of the unit cooling or freezing. The main circuit has been replaced with a new one but there are no changes and the minus sign still appears on the digital panel. Please advice.

do you have frost on your freezer side i think you have a defrost issue it has a heater thermostat and timer if you got frost take the back freezer panel off and than on the uper part of your coils you'll see a round part that hooks on the refrigirent line its all silver plated around except the bottom is blue usually if that looks like it broke as in exploded and is falling appart thats what you need if it looks ok check the ressistance on your heater if ressistance reads infinite than you need a heater but of it reads a number than replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat even though it might not seem broken sometimes they work sometimes dont right befire they are about to go bad all the way good luck
You said, You noticed there was condensation in my fridge and a strange smell
coming from it, also my freezer was cold but didn't seem to be cold
enough, I have a digital display and it was still showing -22 for
freezer and 3 for fridge. I turned the power off on the wall and when i
turned it back on which was straight away it shown -3 for freezer and
16 for fridge... I then noticed the ice cream in freezer very watery,
however ice in freezer still frozen? i pressed the quick freeze button
which eventually the temperature came back up but i keep getting the
exact same problem... Can you help. thank you. Samsung side by side refrigerator SR-S2025CVW
How old is the fridge?
You did all the right things!!
But this sounds like a bad thermostat. or a bad control switch.
Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here! Let me know how you do! Or if you need something else. We do have very good sponsors here on this site that do repair work, should you take this course!
When replaceing the highvoltage control board be careful to not handle it too much as nano voltages can burn it. Unplug before repair. Simply hook it up the way you unhooked it very easy and in the left back of the fridge. Now that it's installed plug fridge in and push back to wall. Look at model tag and write down your code something like 0304 most likely. Go to digital control hold down door alarm and freezer - minus button for 3sec. then let off door alarm now you should see PE flashing the fridge wants personality code (the one you have wrote down). Let off minus now it should show 0000 now push minus once more a decimal should show up 0.000 the decimal indicates what number your about to change. Move the decimal with freezer plus button and lower or higher number setting with fridge side buttons.Once your done hold down freezer minus till the numbers are flashing then open any door and close. Now the fridge should be working properly.Hope I helped
The refrigirator side of my fridge has stopped cooling, the freezer still works but the alarm went off last night and flshed" power failure" on the lettered panel. I have it set at 33 degrees but it keeps rising it is now at 61, help!
