    If it froze up once it will do it again...
    If it is froze up the pack panel will have Ice on it
    Sounds like your defroster is not working.
    Timer issue, or heating eliment. If it uses a light bulb to defrost that is EASY to see and fix.
    Once in a blue moon the defrost terminator goes out and will not allow the defrost to work.

    My money is on the heat lamp in the bottom of the evaporator. One drop of water and it blows it.

    Good luck.

Either a control issue such as control board or cold control thermostat, or a sealed system (compressor and freon related) issue.

The problem is going to more then likely in the main control board which is on the back of the refrigerator in a little compartment this board is bad about going out if you have power surges or outages

Top section of my side by side kitchen aid frodge stop cooling bottom is still cooling and freezer still working


send the model number?if the freezer is cold but in fridge the top is warm and the bottom is cold it sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor,all it does is cold starts in the freezer at the evaporator coil,and the evap fan blows the cold air into the fridge section,warm air rises so if the fan isn't working the cold air will stay down low and the warm air will stay up on top,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing in the freezer i would have to say the evap fan motor is bad,if the fan is working one of the doors could have been left open and the air ducts froze up or you could have a damper in your model,it's just a door that opens and closes to let the air blow in but send the model number so whoever helps you can look up your fridge,usually the model number for a sxs is in the fridge section open the fridge door look up on the right hand wall up near the ceiling or in the middle of ceiling and there should be a tag with model and serial numbers just send the model number,

MY SAMSUNG FRIDGE/FREEZER HAS A PROBLEM MY TEMPERATURE ON THE FRIDGE IS FLASHING. THE MODEL NO. RS21DCNS THE FRIDGE IS NOT COLD ENONUGH AND I PUT THE TEMPRATURE ON HIGH AND IMMEDIANTLY IT WENT BACK DOWN....


This is caused by the ice building up in at the back - the fan catches the ice and eventually will stop. With the fan malfunctioning the temperature will rise and the light then flashes. Keep searching the web, and you will find instructions how to remove the back and de-ice it. I had exactly the same problem 2 months ago. Make sure that it is fully de-iced, including the tray at the bottom. Ours has worked OK since!
