Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

On the digital panel the frige temperature reads 62 degrees. Something is definitely wrong. It was always at 38 degrees. How do I get it back to 38 degrees? The freezer temperature is -4 which is correct. I'm afraid the the food in the fridge will spoil. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

SOURCE: Fridge fine, freezer not freezing

Weird scenario... the first thing I would do it to remove the interior back panel of the lower freezer section after the unit has been running for hours and check the coils to see the frost pattern on them. Should be even white frost all over the coils with no solid frozen coil (block-O-ice thing). Check the fan is running above the coils, etc. when. If everything is OK then you may have a control board problem. Let us know what you find in the freezer coil investigation and we can go from there.

SOURCE: Refrigerator malfunction

samsung units have duel cooling. that means there is a evaporator in the freezer and the fresh food section. it is possible that the temp sensor in the refrigerator section could be bad. and they have been known to have defrost problems there to. the samsung is a complicated unit and its hard to describe how to repair since there is a lot of electronics that control everything. the best thing I could say is to unplug the refrigerator for a few minuets. sometimes this will reset everything and start the unit back to the factory settings. if that does not work I would call for service. hope it helped you some

SOURCE: The refrigerator side is not cooling.

ALMOST DEFINATELY YOU WILL HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED AUGER(MOTOR)CONTROLLING THE AMOUNT OF CHILL ENTERING THE FRIDGE COMPARTMENT. IF YOU SET THE FRIDGE TO MINIMUM AND LISTEN CAREFULLY, THERE SHOULD BE A SOUND INDICATING THE AUGER IS WORKING.( OPENING AND CLOSING THE FLAP). SET TEMP. TO MAX AND LISTEN. IF NOTHING, IT COULS BE A DEFECTIVE MOTOR OR FAULTY THERMISTOR(TEMP. PROBE).

Samsung rs267tdpn beeping 11 times


Sounds like the temperature is your problem which is why it's beeping at you. The freezer is supposed to be at 0 degrees, which is well below freezing at 32. If your unit can't get down to temperature but your refrigerator is correct (38 is the ideal temperature for the refrigerator) then you have something wrong with your control board. If you keep pressing the freezer button it will go to -4 then -6, then so on until it goes positive and eventually you can scroll to 0 again. Either way if it's set to -4 it should easily be below 0 degrees. If it jumps back to the current temp, replace the control board. Here is the part to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

How to set fridge temp


    1. The first thing you must know is that your refrigerator should be set at 37-38 degrees. Anything at 40 or higher and you are risking food born illness (food poisoning) or spoiling your food. Place your magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator.

    2. Set your dial on your refrigerator to the second lowest setting. (If your refrigerator is already equipped with a digital thermostat, simply set it for 37 or 38 degrees and do not move on to the next step)

    3. After 2 hours, check your thermometer reading. If your reading is 38 degrees, there is no need to go higher and you are ready to put your groceries in. Be sure not to open and close your refrigerator during these two hours or your temperature reading will be incorrect.

    4. If your reading is higher than 38 degrees, move your dial up to the next coldest setting and repeat the steps every two hours until you reach the correct temperature for your refrigerator.

    5. Once you have reached the correct refrigeration temperature for your refrigerator, place the magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator permanently and watch for changes.

    Typically, your refrigerator temperature will need to be adjusted with the seasons, a higher setting in the summer and a lower setting in the winter.

Freezer used as a frige?


it may be possible. Turn the temperature on the lowest setting and see what happens. If it still freezes everything up then it is not posible. If it doesn't freeze everything , then check the temperature with any temp probe. It should run at somewhere between 36 and 38 degrees. This is the normal cool setting on a refrigerator.

The freezeer works just fine, but the frige is only about 68 degrees. it is about 100 degrees outside here does affect operation.Frige and freezer have seperate temp adjust.


What is the temperature in the freezer? Anything below 32 degrees freezes water. Make sure condenser coil is clean and that air can flow over it freely. In the back behind a removable panel you will find the condenser. Clean it completely and make sure the fan operates when the compressor is running.. Also check for possible frost on the back wall of the freezer which would indicate a defrost problem. if there is frost there the problem is ether a bad timer, heater, or defrost thermostat.
