SOURCE: samsung rs2533sw fridge not cooling

it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

SOURCE: model #rs2556sh. the freezer is

the evaporator may be froze over with ice..remove this rear panel and if ice or frost is covering evap..use a hair dryer to defrost the coils. this will give you temp service...there still will be the problem that caused it to freeze up and will continue until repaired. its possible the defrost thermostat is bad or the heater or even the defrost control....Bruce Denton

The compressor probably needs re-gasing. You will need a refrigeration engineer.

Good luck

SOURCE: fridge on all the time, freezer temp 25 fridge temp 45, iced over evaporator coil, freezer and compressor fan both working and compressor operating

Better to change both parts=>2188174 Defrost Heater Assembly and the 2188824 Defrost Thermostat
Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Testimonial: "thanks John, I think you're right but Ive realized there is a simple test with the ohm meter while the heater assembly is in situ to determine whether its still good. I see the replacement of that could be a real pain in the a** !"

Samsung rs2630sh not cooling or freezing


If it has fan to deliver cold air, and it is not working, cold air is stuck on the begining. So your fan could be dead. And I suppose, that compressor is running all the time. Even compressor could stert freezing if fan does not deliver cold air in fridge. The other option is, that there is not enough gas in the compressor. In this case compressor vould not be freezing, but line, going out of compressor has to be hot, if it is not, there is no gas.

SAMSUNG RS2534WW CONDENSOR FAN NOT WORKING


Was the motherboard replaced because the temp was too high? May be the condenser fan was at fault all the time. Check you have power at the fan. If you have, replace the fan. If you have not, take a live from the compressor to the fan. This will bypass any hp or fan speed control switch and run the condenser fan with the compressor.

Kenmore side by side fridge. Green temp light flashing for fridge side, freezer side working fine. Fridge side not cooling.


possibly frosted up at the air door between the fridge and freezer, or the fan in the freezer is not pushing cold air into the fridge side, if you can not hear a fan running in the freezer when the fridge is running (compressor on) then change out the fan

Samsung RS2533SW refrigerator is not cooling, freezer is working well. how to fix the problem. don't say unplug, I already tried many times for unplug for 15 seconds, 2 minutes, 2 hrs and overnight. The...


If your seals are good on the door and the fridge side is set for a mid range temp ck and make sure the fan is running in the fzr side. The fridge side steals cold from the freezer by directing air from the fzr to the fridge. Also make sure the fzr does not have an ice block in it the back will be frosted up and if you took the back shell off you would see the cooling coils frosted up real bad or even iced if you find this your refrigerator is going to stop working soon. The suspect parts are the defrost timer the heating element in the freezer located with the cooling coils and the defrost limit this is a nickle size disc with one wire running to the end of the heating element it kicks the element on and off to keep it from overheating the fzr. The defrost timer is usually located in the fridge side under the top or backside plastic it will have a slot in it that a flatblade screwdriver will fit it and you can turn it with audible clicks It kicks the heating element in for a few minutes each day if it quits it will not advance. Hope this helps all of the parts can be purchased and installed by the home owner good luck and remember to unplugg before delving into the elect parts.

My fridge not cold but freezer working fine


there is a shaft from freezer to fridge that the cold air travels. make sure that is unblocked. also make sure the fan is working. then see if the freezer coils are iced up (this restricts air flow). if they are, unplug it, empty the fridge and freezer, defrost the coils, dry it out, plug it in and turn it on (not high). once it reaches the temp and the compressor stops, fill the fridge again.
