Side by side refrigerator freezing up

My samsung side by side refrigerator keeps freezing up. The result is that it has pushed the cooler system at the back of the fridge forward resulting the crisper unit pushing forward and the door not shutting properly. I have removed the crisper unit, this meant the door could now shut properly but the unit is still freezing over. I also set the fridge to 'vacation' in an attempt to defrost the fridge but the ice is still there and it is still as cool as ever. All my food is freezing over too.

Inside the fridge there is a cold radiator which has filled with condensation or water from freezing it when say cleaned out the fridge this can be remedied by letting set for a few days outside in the sun so that water can evaporate properly or you can call a repair man and he can pull out frost radiator inside and defrost all the water out by dry wet vac and heater dryer

ice builds apon ice even a little bit can build up to a mountain same thing happended to my top end whirlpool i pulled the metal grate and defrosted this by pouring tap water over the ice which it went down the defrost tube outside water drain this helped greatly havent had trouble with ice since

.fresh produce is freezing and temp set at 2. what do I need to replace/check

Hi Robert,

I would suggest 2 degrees is too low. Try setting it to 5 and maybe monitor for a few hours. If you feel the produce should be slightly cooler then reduce to 4 degrees. Fresh produce shouldn't be any cooler than this.

I hope this helps

Model gx5shdxvbd03 keeps freezing up

I have a similar Samsung side by side refrigerator and last year had the same problem. i.e. the fridge side ices up.
In our case this eventually led to the circulation fan to stop working and the temperature to rise, all food spoiled. This was caused by the defrosting heating element failing due to a faulty sensor within that component.
Samsung are very aware of this issue and direct contact with their customer services resulted in an engineer's visit and a free of charge repair. We also were given a voucher for the loss of food caused by the failure of the fridge.

I have Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator that is no longer making ice. It has not made ice in over a week.

Most times that is caused by the water control valve on rear of the refrigerator. Pour tap water into the ice maker and see if it will cycle after freezing. Let me know your results, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing

First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost

Freezer not freezing

How old is the unit? Does it seem to have air circulating in freezer? Is the temp in the refrigerator side cold enough? One common thing is for the defrost heater to stop working which causes the freezer to ice up and stop circulating air. If you can put all items in a cooler and unplug the unit for several hours leaving the freezer door open. Plug it back in and see if it starts blowing frost again. That would indicate a bad defrost system. It can be several things but most common are the heating elements. If the defrost timer stops working you get the same results. If this does not produce positive results then it could be a weak compressor or gas leak. Best have a repairman check it or get a new one if it is the compressor.
