Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.


If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

The compressor not coming on.There are two possibilities. 1) Faulty compressor. 2) Faulty over load start up relay. ----------- The part which you mentioned that repairman replaced is over load start up relay.---------- So even after relay is replaced the compressor is not coming on and there is no voltage at compressor, then it indicates faulty compressor.---------- But to confirm this problem.By pass the over load relay and then directly connect power source to compressor and turn the unit on and check.Is the compressor getting started?---------- The actual wiring is wire from main power goes to relay, then wire from relay goes to compressor .So what you have to do is turn of the unit, by disconnecting it from main power outlet.Then remove the over load relay out.Note down its wiring.So you don't get confused while reconnecting relay again.------ After you remove the relay.Connect the wire going to relay, directly to the compressor.Then turn on the unit.If the compressor starts, then its faulty relay.But if compressor does not start , then its faulty compressor, or the wire leading to the compressor.But as you mentioned that all lights, fans are working, this indicates problem with compressor or relay.-------- This testing will help, to confirm the problem.-------- Thanks.Helpmech.

Hi

That could be caused by a problem in the compressor's starting relay or overload protector or a problem in the compressor itself... assuming nothing has changed in its power supply (added extension cord, etc.) which might just be hampering the compressor's operation.

Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

What is the voltage reading at the compressor? Are the fans inside and outside the fridge working? I believe your model is found in Europe correct? Is there a computer board found on the back of your model? Can you provide photos? Contact Me Here

Power went out now back on. Samsung rs261mdwp has 1 blinking light on freezer side. What is this and how to fix?


Usually when there is a power failure or surge the PCB printed circuit board can be damaged on old or new refrigerators. It is just one of the problems associated with electronic controlled refrigerators. Your model has a=> DA41-00669A Control Board Unplug and examine to see if there are swollen capacitors or burn marks. You cannot always see damage to the board so if not then return the control board. I'm here if you care to ask questions. Compressor and fans stop? Cooling stops? Let me know by answering my post here, Thanks John T. Appliance 911

I have off on frezer and fridg. How do i fix that


Hello Lupe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I am sorry that you purchased a Samsung. Both Samsung and LG have the highest failure and repair rate of all of the refrigerator brands.

You have two electronic boards.


1.) Refrigerator Power Control Board - The power control board DA92-00146A activates components such as the compressor and fans to keep the refrigerator cool.
25599925-r5g5y23p0dw01cqq3ycojdca-1-0.jpg Part #: DA92-00146A Cost: $137.13

2.) Refrigerator Power Inverter Board


25599925-r5g5y23p0dw01cqq3ycojdca-1-2.jpg
Part #: DA41-00614B Cost: $95.00

This board has a fuse that on occasion will blow.
Do you have power to your unit?

If you attempt to inspect these boards make sure you ground yourself by touching something that is bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a electronic board.

a.) If you have no power then your problem is the power inverter board.
b.) If nothing is running yet the lights are on, then you are locked into the defrost model. Every 8-10 hours your unit will shut down for 20-30 minutes. At this time your defrost heater turns on to defrost the cooling coil. Afterwards, your unit will automatically turn back on. The defrost model is built into your Power Control Board.

While employed by; Sears Home Services & A&E Factory Services (Same Company), I would charge you twice the cost of the board or a total service call of $500.00 or more.

You may want to find a retired refrigeration technician that can do the repair for 1/2 the cost or less. Make sure they are certified to do the work.

Compressor runs but fans dont.


If the compressor is running and pumping with no heat produced, you have lost refrigerant.. Most modern freezers have a controlled fan so the coil can freeze before the fan starts.

Samsung fridge wont start compressor right away. There is delay, so when you plug fridge in it take 15 - 20 minutes to start.To check if fan is running, you need magnet. Place it on top of door hinge. Open door and if lights are out, you are in wright spot. Take magnet of to test if lights come on. Now put magnet back and if fridge fan is running you can feel it how it blow from different outlets inside of fridge .
