Yeah. Probably blew the fuse on the mother board. You can find the diagram on line pretty easy for the fridge and the board. As long as you pay attention to the cable connectors it is pretty east to take out to inspect. The fuse is easily detectable. Makes sense to place the whole board versus trying to get the fuse out (it is soldered in). If this is it, you can find the board either on ebay cheap (if you can wait a few days for delivery) because many of the boards are used by other manufactures (LG for instance). Or you may find it from somewhere locally for a little more (Sears for example). Either way, a lot cheaper than service call and more often than not, still faster then a service call.

you have spent $1395.00 on a machine you hate
most people get rid of it after the first $500.00 bill as new fridges cost around $1000.00 and you get 2 years warranty
smart people with new fangled fridges power them through a quality surge protection device as well

Is it a power or main board?


The device is shutting off similarly to how a PC will after it has been damaged from a power surge. You mentioned the problem began shortly after a storm. If you were not using a surge protector then the device's internal power supply has probably been damaged. I would suggest a service center repair evaluation. Please customer service before you attempt anything else. If its an electronic store like Best Buy then I would suggest taking it in to them.

If this happened after a storm, the monitor may have been subjected to a power surge, which unfortunately might have killed it.

If you have another monitor (or a friend who has one) try plugging that other monitor into your computer. If the second monitor works, yours will need to be replaced as the input was probably destroyed by the power surge.

If the second monitor also doesn't work, there may be a problem with your computer, most likely with the power supply (this is the part most often damaged by a power surge). You may want to have it examined by a professional computer repair person at that point.

Hope this is helpful!

this is a common fault, you need to replace the defrost heater and thermal cut-out in the fridge section behind the salad buckets, a temporary fix for a few weeks is to switch the whole thing off at the wall and leave the fridge and freezer doors open for at least 24hrs to allow the frozen up evaporator to defrost.

My power went out and since it was restored my fridge won't come.


IIRC your refrigerator has an electronic control in the front face of the freezer door. Both sides have 3 buttons in a vertical column. Is there any sign of life on this control panel (IE do you see the stack of horizontal green bars lit up and does pushing the "freeze" or "fridge" button change them)? If not, then the most likely scenario is that you had a big power surge when the AC voltage came back and it blew out your control panel. If you can install an adequatley rated surge protector in the power line for your refrigerator you can prevent this from happening again.

The digital display on my rs2555sl Samsung stopped working and the fridge and freezer are not cooling. The fridge is only 4 years old. what could the problem be?


circuit board controling temp to both fridge and freezer is out. Could have been fried by an electrical surge or just a badcircuit board.

Sorry
