Last year frig broke. Repair ordered compressor. Before part even arrived frig began working on its own. So, we never replaced part and it's worked fine til today. Same problem. no freezing/cooling

when a COMPRESSOR it breakes is broken the problem you have is more to me like an electric-electronic problem in this case could be the electronic board this componnent controls the time for cool/freez and defroz. i think there is a problem when the freeg goes to a defrozen mode it will stay there for ever. when defrozen mode the compressor is out so the fans. i hope this helps.

Unit stopped running. T-stat just makes a clicking sound

Are you sure its the thermostat that is clicking and not the compressor. IF the click is comming from inside the frig it is the thermostat, but if its comming from the rear of the frig its the compressor.
If its the thermostat thats clicking you can unplug the frig and remove the thermostat and jump the two wires together and plug the frig back in to see of the compressor comes on. If it comes on, replace the thermostat.
If it doesn't come on check to see if you have current to the compressor. If no power to the compressor check to see of the frig is stuck in defrost. Locate the defrost timer and advance one click and observe if the frig comes on. If the frig comes on at this point replace the defrost timer.

Neither freezer or frig is working each has its own compressor.

No Colin,

It has two evaporators with one compressor. Your thinking, or was told by the Sales Staff "Its like a Sub Zero" Right?

Sorry for the confussion Brother! I get that alot.

Your problem and symtoms sound like a auto defrost malfunction if you can hear the compressor running.

OR if Compressor is not running and you hear a periodic "Hum followed by a CLICK" at the compressor. Replace the PTC Start Relay on the side of the compressor.

You tempertures have increased to the point that the electronic display is giving you the "ME DEAD" ME CLOSE MY EYES NOW!

If you unplug the frig or shut down power to the frig. The PCB will return with "Set Temp" then show current temp!
Compressor should start in 5 min. If so wait to see if the reading start to come down to normal. FZ=0 RF=37
Problem maybe Main PCB

If after several hours and NO reduction in readings, UNPLUG the Frig
to totally defrost itself for several days ( what's a couple more days)
YES A COUPLE OF DAYS, THE EVAPORATORS ARE INCASED IN STYROFOAM a well know insulator> Watch for icewater draining into the "Non-Removable" Drip pan under the compressor in the back. Remove the rear cover to expose and suction water out with a baster or wet vac on occasion. If you get a full pan of water> YEP Defrost Malfunction.

You can plug the frig back in after water stops dripping. Watch your display it will almost immediately start dropping in readings.

The Frig will work again for how long it takes to ice over again. I say 1 -2 weeks depending on humidity and how it takes you to make up your mind on what you want to eat?

Since the resolution and repair is so difficult I RECOMMED CALLING:
1-800-SAMSUNG and schedule a visit.
Why you say?

Well if the Compressor went bad and is less than 5 years old,>IT"S UNDER WARRANTY.

IF the Ref Side Evaporator Heater is Shorted It's a Evaporator Replacement (Heater not available seperate) > WARRANTY AGAIN.

So, Looking at the post date, You must of had it repaired by now?

What was it?

Hope this helps!

Frig keeps overloading circuit breaker, just repaced relay

I think the compressor has a problem with its internal running coil , or it's grounded.To check it you can disconect the power to the compressor and then turn on the breaker , and if doesn't tripped the breaker ,you know the compressor is bad.

Replacing thermostat

try to determine if compressor is running when "stops cooling". then, if it is, look for frosted coils on back. if frost, then unit needs thorough cleaning with compressed air.

Frig and feezer stopped working

It sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor.If the problem isn't that then you need a compressor.

Everything in frig is frozen and it won't turn off.

If the compressor is running non-stop then the temp. control is not telling it that it's "cold enough". If the compressor isn't running non-stop then you should look at the air damper (little window) that lets the freezer air into the refer compartment... if it's stuck open then you will always get cold air pushed into the fridge eventually becoming a freezer in itself.
