Our Samsung fridge is not the exact same model as this , its a (RS2544SL) but exactly the same thing happened last nite .I left the door ajar and everything melted now the freezer does not work.Ive tried to make it work and have called Samsung(thats another story)This is not the first time this has happened with this fridge , the freezer stopped working in the first 2 months of ownership and before a service guy could come around (2 days ) it started working again. This time no luck so far ...the fridge is now 2 years old and not covered by full warranty! Any ideas?

Re: freezer stopped working
Solomonau, it's hard to tell without being there exactly what is going on. I do know however,that in April of 2005 Samsung came out with a bullitin regarding the cap tube. It states that it has been inserted into the dryer incorrectly and can cause no cool situations. This is part of the sealed system which should be covered for 5 years. What you are describing sounds like a partial restriction, which could be taking place in that dryer and cap tube. If you were to post your model number, I would be able to tell if yours was included in this bullitin. You can then contact Samsung and inquire about this service bullitin, Catriver..post back.

The exact same thing happened to me. An LG service tech was sent to my home, only to tell me that he couldnt fix the problem.. a blown fuse. He said the entier fridge had to be replaced. You would think a blown fuse owuld be an easy fix, but evidentally not. LG did replace the appliance but after it was replaced they told me theyd only guarantee the new fridge for 90 days. After that, my extended service plan would come into effect. Good thing Id purchased that plan because my 90 days was up last month & now my ice maker has quit working. I will never buy another LG product!
If you completely defrost the freezer and restart the unit and it doesn't get cold in the refrig portion it could be the internal fan that moves cold air from the freezer to the frig area if it does get cold after an hour or so then it is probably the defrost coil needs replacing. I am not familar with your exact model but this senario applies to many different units.
well i have the exact same refrigerator but opposite problem.... the freezer works but the entire refridgerator is a freezer....why is the fridge part freezing everything. This appeared to happen after the power went out and the entire fridge is a freezer now.
Just happened to me with a power flash- fixed it by pressing and holding the Freezer and Frig buttons together until the screen flashed and reset. Wheww! Though it was a gonner! Fine now:) Hope it works for you!
