    I have the same problem. I was told by my home warranty part cost is over $500, but I have not been able to find anyone that sells it. A temporary solution is to unplug refrigerator, remove the panel at the back side of the freezer and defrost the evaporator. You have to slide out the shelves and remove 6 screws. Warm water works pretty well as a fast defrost method. When finished replace the panel and plug back in. My refrigerator works for another 7-10 days before freezing again.

    My first symptom was no water from the front, so I pulled the fridge out to check water line, water pressure was fine. Turns out the fridge was frosted up behind the lower shelf which froze up the water for the water line in a white plastic radiator shaped dohickey. Anyway after removing all the shelfs and storage bins I removed 7 screws and carefully defrosted the fridge evaporator coil with a sharper image hair dryer,the plastic housing w/fan was stuck to the ice at the bottom so it took about 40 minutes with the hair dryer. This problem was with the fride portion,no problem with the freezer so far. I tested the fan after defrosting,when you push in the door switch the fan should start in about 10-15 seconds, fan tested fine. I'm going to leave the fride set @ 38 degrees and see what happens over the next few weeks.My fridge is a samsung rs2545sh so others models may or may not be similar. Good Luck, I know I have my fingers crossed.

    Temperature light started flashing 40 degrees when I unplugged the fridge and plugged it back in the panel will not light up at all anymore and nothing works except the lights in the refrigerator. There is 1 single light that is lit up on the outside LED panel but that is all. I left it unplugged overnight but when I plugged it in in the morning nothing happened still. Any suggestions? Mine is a RS 2545 SH

    One night the freeze door was accidently remained opened and even aafter unplugging the refrigerator the temp didnt go down...mine is SAMSUNG RS2545SH

    I am experiencing the same problem. I noticed about a month ago that a couple of cans of soda had frozen, so I turned the fridge temp up a few degrees. I had been traveling and working long hours, the fridget hadn't been opened much and I assumed that was the problem. Then about a week and half ago I noticed that the fridge temp light was blinking, and then over Easter weekend the top shelf seemed lukewarm, while the rest of the fridge seemed fine.

    I will see if the fan is frozen, as suggested here, and hopefully that will resolve the problem.

    If not, I must set out in quest of finding a repair service...

    Have a two year old Samsung side by side. A couple weeks ago, the refrigerator side light started flashing at the 34 degree level, during day hours. By morning it would be sloid again. Yesterday morning I got up and the indicator read 43 degrees. I put a solid ice block inside, and the temperature went down to 34. Noe today when I left for work the indicator read 52 degrees. Should i unplug this as from the previous suggestions?

  • blodgett Sep 02, 2008

    I have the SAMSUNG RS2545SH from Costco also. This is the second time the freezer side temp light has been blinking and everything thaws out. Last time after a day or two it just started working again. Doesn't sound like Samsung cares to fix their product. Mine is only a year old. I will haul it back to Costco if I have to.....

    I have the same problem with a different model, RS267LASH. Go to this link

    and check out the procedure (on page two) outlined for forcing the frige into defrost mode.

    This will save you from having to live out of an ice chest while the techs scratch their heads as they can't fix the frige. Perform the forced defrost every 24 hours and let it go through its cycle.

    I have ordered a new PBA Main Board and that is what fixed the same problem 10 months ago.

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

Successfully, I finaly fixed my refridge. I have the same problem like above. I replay heater, 2 sensors, and PBA board also; but it didn't work. The evap-coil is still freezing but the refridge temp goes 55* to 60*. The solution: make sure the drain below evap-coil NOT stuck. Everytime the refridge defrosts, water from evap can't run out. The drain is block. Therefore, it keeps freezing in evap-coil and fan, so it makes fan stop working. I use the air pressure to make the drain clear. Hope, you can fix your! Thanks for read this!

Blinking Fridge Light and Both Fridge & Freezer Warming Up

I would say to contact Servall, a component source for all appliance repairs. They have a Web site and are helpful. You should also try the Web for any repair Manuals for your unit.

There are timers for the Defrost cycle. I am familiar with the old mechanical type, the blinking of the computer type is often in a Code which diagnoses the problem. You need the Manual to translate what the blinks mean.

This is going to be a problem with either the thermostat control or the compressor relay from the freezer to frigde, either way, you will need to call a service tech.

There is something plugging the drain line in the freezer which carries water from the defrost cycle to your evap drain tray in the bottom of your fridge. The water has built up and froze plugging the flow of air from freezer to fridge.... find the line and unplug it and let fridge sit and thaw overnight and then some more.

I have a PFSS5PJXCSS French door with bottom freezer GE Profile refrigerator. Was making an awful noise and both fridge and freezer were warm. I opened back panel of freezer to find ice everywhere,...

Had similar problem, freezer was working fine, but fridge was warm, (68 degrees) It wasnt my damper, the mother board was fried, and so was the inverter board that told the compressor what to do, after having the inverter and two mother boards replaced.......I threw it out, biggest piece of ****, only three years old, and Sears would not stand behind it, even though I used their repairmen. I will never buy another GE product, or enter a Sears store again

Does outside temperature affect performance of freezer

Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when
the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food
compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have
long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control.
This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start
to defrost.
There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301
and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising
how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater

Freezer okay, fridge warm

May need defrosting, so do that, and also unplug the unit for 9 minutes, as this should reset anything that might have affected the problem. Check with Kenmore customer service department on how long the unit takes to get to a set temperature after resetting and consult your manual on your warranty options.
