Re: My fridge won't keep temp..
Most samsung have a fan in the fridge and an evaporator. take off the back plate of the fridge and melt off and excess ice especially round the fan.; if it keeps happening then you have a fault in the defrost system

Before you go any further it is important that you check for freezer temps. Yes, you have frozen items but remember that water freezes at 32 degrees and many items will get hard at that temp. And also remember that the lower the temp the longer frozen items will keep.
But ice cream needs proper freezer temps close to zero degrees. Use a digital thermostat and check for your freezer temp - bet it it is no where near zero. I had the same problem and attributed it to the fact that I was not using a name brand ice cream!!!! I was wrong ! LOL.
Your question is a bit ambiguous. If you are using a thermometer be sure it is correct. If you are talking setting the temperature it is explained on page 25 of the manual it gives these instructions:
• Press the Temp button repeatedly until your desired mode is lit.
• Each time you press the Temp button, you change the mode in this order: Meat/ Fish mode (29°F(-1°C)), Cold Drinks mode (33°F(1°C)), Deli/Snack mode (37°F(3°C)), Wine/Party Dishes mode (42°F(5°C)). Initially, the Cold Drinks mode is selected. The refrigerator will adjust the temperature in the Flex Zone automatically to the temperature you selected.
• The Flex Zone Temp. Display may change depending on the number of items inside, where they are located, the ambient temperature, and how often the door is openend.
Dear friend! Most of the customers are not advised by supplier how to use fridge and maintain. Please keep thermostat at 5 degree or less little. If you keep temp in minus will make over freezing and also defrost timing will be after long time. It will create over ice formation around the freezer by which the freezer fan will be blocked or disturbed to work. Resulting to less or no temp in fridge compartment. Please ensure, thermostat,defrost timer and heater are working properly. Thanks.
It's due to wrong temp setting and malfunction of defrost cycling. Keep thermostat setting at 5 degree or little less. And don't keep it in minus,as defrost cycle will take longer time. And also you will get less cooling in fridge compartment and also water leaks.Check drain line hose may freezed. And also freezer tray get blocked due to over frosting around freezer. Defrost manually by unplug your fridge and after defrost all ices, plug again and keep correct temp setting. Thanks.
This is the common problem to everyone. Due to defrost failure. Check temp setting is not very low. Keep 5 degree.. Check thermostat, defrost timer are working properly. Now, manuyally press defrost switch or turn counter clockwise your thermostat. Then fridge shuts off and wait for sometimes to get complete defrost and then restart again by turning thermostat clockwise. Helpful?
When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower
the the set temperature
for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree.
some times those friges fail to calibrate them self
tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds
and replug it
then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours
If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.
Really most folks have to keep their setting on their fridge on about a 6-7 or-8 setting with the amount of food that is kept in the fridge now.
YOU CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE RELATIVE temp if you like by placing a fridge thermometer in the appliance. Optimal fresh food should be around 40-43 degrees F on average to keep things on the cooler side without freezing.
Hope this helps
