Question about Samsung RS2630WW Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Fridge and Freezer do not keep foods cool

We purchased our RS2630WW on Dec. 31 and for the last three weeks the temperature has been inconsistent. They are too high and the foods in the freezer melt and the fridge does not keep the foods at cool enough temperature. We have had the Samsung contracted repair man to the house and he replaced the censors on our fridge. This did not solve the problem. The freezer worked for a day and now is back to its old tricks. Does anyone have any recommendations? Has anyone been able to get their money back or at least a different fridge? Any help is appreciated. Azusa

Samsung rs2630ww i have had endless problems i have had it replaced 4 times. red hot center and side panels i have had 2 condensers burn. the problem is that it is simply badly designed!
there is not enough air flow . so if it has any restriction it kills the unit. a Samsung tech told me off the record these units are all problematic! of course he love it at 200 an hour.

I have a Samsung RFG298HDRS XAA that the freezer stopped cooling and the fridge is only 44 degrees the only code that shows is 24 E

If there is ice build up on the inside back wall of the freezer or fresh food section, then you have a defrost problem. One way to check this is to remove the food, unplug the refrigerator and leave the doors open for a few hours. This will manually defrost the fridge and freezer. Once it has defrosted plug the refrigerator back in, do not put your food back in yet, wait about two hours and see if the temperature is back to normal. Once defrosted the fridge will work fine for about a week, then it will need to be defrosted again. There are three components that control defrost, the defrost timer, the defrost thermostat, and the defrost heaters. Any one of these could be the problem.

Why is the refrigerator side is freezing food

First some fridge 101, the refrigerator/freezer models cool by directly refrigerating the freezer section and the refrigerator section is cooled when "some" of the cold air from the freezer is directed over to the refrigerator side (typically by a fan) to keep food fresh and not frozen a temperature controlling damper opens and closes to regulate the temperature of the fridge by introducing more or below freezing air into the cabinet. In older models where the freezer was on top the air simply "gravity" drained into the refrigerator cabinet, if the food was too cold you turned the fridge knob up and less air sank from the freezer to the fridge, simple but effective.

When you adjust the temperature level it controls the freezer temperature and this turns the compressor on and off to keep the food frozen. There is typically a knob or lever and some even have electric dampers that open and close to direct more or less air from the freezer and direct it to the refrigerator cabinet based on your temperature requirements.


Now that you know how it works there are a couple things to check. If the condenser coil is plugged with dust the internal system pressure will rise and in some cases make the fridge an over achiever and can chill too much so check/clean the condenser coil. Check the freezer temperature control and turn in up, also make sure the fridge temperature control setting is not set too cold.

Finally as the temperature changes around the refrigerator it will have an effect on the inside of the fridge too so expect to turn it up and down as the environment changes, down in the summer and up in the winter.

Hope the novel helps to resolve your issues.

I cleaned out my fridge completely today. Took all the shelves out, cleaned the interior, all the glass over a three hour period. The freezer is working just fine, the fresh food area is nice and dry but...

Manufacturers suggest that it takes approximately 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize in both your freezer and fresh food compartments after being turned off for an extended period of time. Adjust temperature settings to the "half-way" mark for both freezer and fresh food compartments. Allow a period overnight and recheck the temperatures. Also check the condenser coil (usually located underneath the appliance). If clogged with dirt/lint, it needs to be cleaned (carefully) with a condenser coil brush (can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowe's). Prior to cleaning condenser coil, turn off appliance (there is a condenser fan motor and blade operating while on). Be careful not to damage copper tubing (refrigerant in tubing)!

Our refrigerator is not cooling at all. The freezer is working fine, but no cool air is getting to the refrigerator section. A couple of weeks ago, this problem happened after the freezer had started...

Some fridges only cool the freezer and an evaporator fan motor moves cool air from the freezer to the fridge side. If this fan doesn't spin very freely then it may need to be replaced. You should also pull out the fridge and see where the drain hose is connected to the inside of the fridge, try pouring hot water down the hose to see if it is open. It may be clogged with a pea or some food or frozen. If your fridge is really full, make sure there is nothing in front of where the evaporator fan blows air into the fridge. Make sure that the adjuster flap is open in the fridge section.

Bottom freezer not working

Hi, sorry I do not have any advice to offer. We have the same model. Three weeks ago the red light came on and freezer stopped working. Last week the fridge packed up. We may have been unlucky but I thought it might be worth mentioning incase they were related and your fridge gave up as well.

Blinking temperature control

You need to check the limit thermostat for the defrost in the back of the refrig section. I replace it with a standard bi-metal type from a Frigidaire to keep the problem from reoccuring.
