I had the same problem with my 2630. Unplugged the power cord and pulled the small panel off on the rear of the unit. The fan was working. I noticed a lot of dust built up on the condensor- the cooling fins were full of it. I took my small shop vac and cleaned off all that I could on the the surface of the condensor. Thought I'd try blowing it out in case I missed any in the inner part of the condensor. Reversed the hose on the shop vac so it would blow air and turned it on. Dust blew everywhere! Just vacuuming it out wasn't enough. No more problems with the heat- that seems to have cleaned it out so that the fan can now pull air across the condensor to properly cool it down. Hope this helps.

I'm not suggesting that you do this because it could possibly burn out the fridges compressor or other components and there are possible risks of fire or shock,or bodily injury. unplug refriderator before working on it. PROCEED WITH CAUTION. so with this been said this is what I did I tested all motors in fridge- evaporator fan (good) compressor (good) ice dispensor (good) condensor fan (bad) it turned out to be a burnt out condensor fan (condensor fan) is located in the bottom right hand corner. remove metal vent cover.The motor is encased in a white plastic housing attached to the rectangular condensor coils remove the plastic housing and separate case and remove the fan and motor. First do a visual inspection then check for any obstructions or breakage of any fan blades, if non then check the fan by rotating the fan blade with one finger in a clockwise position, if blade does not turn or is hard to turn with one finger the fan is possibly burnt. test with a multimeter for resistance, if line is open the motor is burnt and shold be replace with the exact model. Sears has it in stock but it will cost you, I also checked online and found a fan motor for priced for $31.90 + s/h at REPAIRCLINIC.COM if it the same make and model as mine the model# is DA31-00103A and the part number is 1075195 please check you make and model and part #s before purchasing, you can find the model number normally on the wall inside refridge and the part # would be on the fan motor itself not the plastic motor housing. thats all the info I can give you, hope it's helpful Good luck, take care.
P.S. unplug all appliances before servicing, if you are not familliar with electronics or electricity please contact a qualified repair service. Thanks

Correct, condenser coils remove heat from the freezer compartment, thusly they will be hot. Sounds like the compressor is failing and that is probably giving off a squealing sound and stops running until it stops. Then your compressor will overheat and stop running until the thermal protector cools down and allows it to run again. Try replacing the compressor cooling fan.

Upper. Part of fridge not cold after fan noise for few days.


The fan probably needs to be replaced. The fan assembly is either stuck or burned out. Air will not circulate without the fan.and hot air rises.

Hi Ken Wolter, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Tell me more about the cooling or not cooling at all? Can you feel the top of the compressor and tell me is it warm, cool or too hot to keep hand there? Are the fans running inside and outside? Lights on and control panel working? any clicking noise from the compressor? DA35-10013Q Start Relay and DA34-10003S Overload, let me know, John Tripp Appliance 911

My mpv is overheating and not pttin out any heat in the cab. I replaced the stat and the problem remains...what is the solution to this...btw, the h2o pump isn't leaking either..


Are there clogs in the system that may be fixed by flushing and filling with coolant?

Do both tubes leading to the heater core get hot when the engine is hot?

If not, then the heater core is plugged up.

Otherwise, if the two tubes are hot leading to the heater core, the blend door is not opening.

Also, is the radiator's cooling fan operating when it gets hot?

These are a few questions to ask.

Good luck on this repair.

My samsung rs2630sh is very very hot to the touch


The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

Hot refrigerator


I had the exact same problem and got sick and tired of it. I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commision and they came out and photographed my refrigerator and asked questions about the fridge. If everyone who is having trouble would write the commission we might be able to get the fridge recalled. Even if you repaired it already, they want to know the problem and what you did about it. the web site is: www.cpsc.gov. Everyone please help out. The more people we get to respond the better.

Freezer works fine...refrigerator section


Have you noticed more frost in the freezer than usual? It sounds like you may have moisture building up and freezing around evaporator fan. The fan blade hitting ice will cause the buzzing until it stops it completely or the evaporator clogs with frost and blocks airflow. If you have frost on food in freezer, check the door seals and make sure nothing is keeping doors from closing completely if you release them about 6" from cabinet.
