Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Samsung fridge RS2545SH every 7 days freezes fridge coil.

I would like more advice on how to test and locate the thermostat. I am very familiar with using multimeters. This is an all digital display on the front that tells you the temps and stuff. Im not sure where the thermostat is located. I did find the defrost heater built into the evaporator coil in the fridge compartment. Any help would be appreciated.

How to test electric water heater thermostats


1) Copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-thermostats.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

2) There is no reliable way to test electric water heater thermostats.
This is because testing requires rotating the temperature selector, which may cause stuck-thermostat to temporarily unstick. So thermostat appears to work normally.
Moreover, thermostat come out of calibration over time, and the temperature selector might be on 125 but tank temperature at 100, and there is no specific way to measure calibration.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

3) I think it easier to replace both upper and lower thermostats to eliminate them as suspects when diagnosing wide-range of electric water heater problems.

hi larry, this fault could be down to the thermostat not sure where it's located on your machine. but usually located at the back half of the underside of the outer tub of the washer you will need a multimeter to test this make sure the powers off stick your probes on the thermostat you may get a reading of about 2 to 4 ohm any higher than this mean the thermostat is faulty. hope it helps

My Lg Dryer Model # DLE2050W turns on but doesn't heat up and I was tryig to find out if it was because of the heating element or if it has a thermal fuse and can that cause it not to heat. If so...


your machine has thermostats Your dryer uses multiple thermostats to regulate its internal temperature. The cycle selected determines which thermostat is used. A cycling thermostat can be found somewhere in the path of air that is leaving the drum. It could be found on the blower wheel housing or inside the venting/exhaust system. Dryer thermostats are usually oval shaped and about an inch and a half in length. Also, there should be two wires leading to each thermostat. Label these wires before you remove them so that you are able to correctly reconnect them later.Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermostat should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. If your not familiar with this, consult a repairman

F3 displayed on a ADP5966 dishwasher


F3 indicates a Heating System Defect.
Heater or relay on control board defect.
Also check cabling.

These machines are notorious for bad connections.

The control board can also suffer from corrupt software. The eprom can be reprogrammed with the right equipment.

Freezer coils frosted and refrigerator is not cold. I had this problem about 5 years ago, and it was the defrost control board (something like that). Do you know the correct part name.


The part you are referring to is the adaptive defrost assembly.

You can purchase it online here.

For a diagram depicting the part click here. Its # 13 on the top right.

Warninig: Remove the refrigerator from the mains outlet to prevent shock and use safety gloves before performing any repairs.

Before replacing the board check the defrost heater and thermostat for continuity with a multimeter to ensure they are working properly.

To test defrost thermostat set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place aprobe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading ofzero when the thermostat is cold and a reading of infinity when it iswarm (40 to 90 degrees F depending on the model). If the thermostatdoes not pass this test it should be replaced.

To test the defrost heater set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. If the reading is not between those two extremes the heating element should be replaced.

Cant find the location of the speed sensor


It is usually at the back end of the transmission, and has two wires, and is usually fastened by one bolt. If you pulled them out they are magnetic. Meaning it has a magnet inside. It also have copper winding inside of it. You can also test it using a digital multimeter set to millivolt. Touch a metallic object at its metal end, and suddenly pull it away. A few millivolt should be induced and displayed on the multimeter. Good Luck

IHAVE A HOVER SIX TC650 WHICH WILL NOT HEAT UP ALTHOUGH THE DRUM IS WORKING FINE AND SPINNING.HAVE CHECKED THE FILTERS AND THEY ARE FINE.WHAT CAN BE WRONG


Hi.

Test and eventually replace the Dryer thermal fuse
The fuse is located on the blower wheel cover.
The fuse can be tested using a multimeter.
If the fuse has continuity , then is good.

Test the heating element and the thermostat Thermal cut-off .

Both are tested using a multimeter to read impedance. Set multimeter at Rx1, on Ohms.

To test the element disconnect element and point tester probes at element contact.
If there is no continuity, and the circuit is open, then the element is faulty.

The thermostat can be tested jumping its wires to bypass it, but there are many safety concerns doing this kind of test.
Better disconnecting the thermostat and reading Ohms, as for the element.
At room temp the thermostat must have low impedance, if it goes to infinity, and circuit is open at room temperature, then the thermostat is bad.

If both test good, and you have no heating at all, then it may be a bad electronic control, or a wiring problem.

All test and repair must be done by a technician.

If you need to contact a technician you can call the number listed on the owners manual.

Heat is erratic


If you already tested the element, then test and eventually replace the following parts:

PS334206
Heating Element Connection Wire part 19 in diag (can be tested using multimeter, check for lose connection or broken wire).

PS347661 Lint Filter , Replace it.

PS383953 and _.gif PS987929 blower assembly (check for obstruction because of lint, and that wheel is working) part 10 and 11 on diag.


PS344510 Cycling Thermostat (can be tested using multimeter), part 8

PS351925 High Limit Thermostat (can be tested using multimeter)- part 15 in diag.

Refer to diagram below to locate parts:
