Question about Samsung Refrigerators
Meat deep in the lower bins are staying frozen. noticed before this happened, we started seeing light frost on some of the items in freezer. decreasing the freezer temp ( now to -6 is working, but it used to be at -2 without issue ). Refrigerator portion is working fine, no cooling issues.
I have never owned a fridge freezer so have no experience to draw on apart from a sketchy knowledge of the principles involved.
I just wanted to mention that food remaining frozen at -2 C or even -6 C doesn't mean the food will remain safe to eat indefinitely, in fact the safe life of food at those temperatures will be about the same as in the freezer compartment of the old fashioned fridge - a matter of a few weeks to a couple of months.
The safe and almost indefinite storage of freezer food requires temperature of -25/-27 C
I suggest you obtain service for your fridge freezer...

Hi: Meat and other frozen foods will be rock solid at 32degrees. Ice cream will be soft it needs 0degrees to be hard. It sounds like your freezer is above 0 degrees. You tried the adjustments. Make sure the coils on the bottom are clean. They will warm a ref if they are dirty. A coil brush from the hardware store or a air compressor (plan on dusting the house when done. Just vaccuuming the front isn't enough. That's an older model but one of the controls affects both the freezer and fresh food. When it's running turn one down; if it turns off the compressor it affects both. The other control is just an air balance, to direct how much air gets to each compartment. I hope this helps, Jeff

You are having a problem with one of the three main components of the the defrost system. Look into rear of your freezer to see if ice and frost is beginning to build up on the rear panel. If yes begin manual defrost by unplugging and remove contents of freeze. Even better send me the model number of your Whirlpool. That is how I tell you were the problem began most likely. Look around the door frame and inside the fresh food section sea Breeze
