Samsung refrigerator rs2630sh is not cooling, replaced the relay and fan and still nothing the compressor clicks but won't actually turn on

If you have a multi-meter that you can check resistance on you can check the compressor and make sure the windings are not shorted. Remove the relay on the compress , after you unplug it of course. Set the mulit-meter on the ohm Rx1 is good. Check between each pin if you get more that 10 ohms then the compressor is fried. a good reading is around 5 to 6 ohm. If below the 10 ohm but higher then the compressor is ok but getting ready to short out. I hope I have helped you. Have a great day.

Check thermostate on a samsung side by side frig rs2630sh

Set it to max setting, once compressor starts reduce setting to whatever you want to set it to. It should shut off once it reaches the temp you selected. If the compressor does not come on when set to max, unplug the unit, remove t/stat and jumper the two wires together. Plug it in, if the compressor then starts, replace the t/stat.

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.

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.

Door seal hot

The manufacturer runs a freon line through the cabinent so there will be no condensation on the case where the doors seal. This is only supposed to be lukewarm, so if it is hot then you have one of several problems. If your condensor under the refer is dirty it can cause this. If your condensor fan motor is burned out or running slowly it can do this. If you have a bad compressor it can do this. Check these and see if this takes care of your problem
