Spray a good quantity of WD-40 on the spindle of the fan motor where it enters the motor itself. This should get the fan working smoothly with no noise. This will probably solve the other problems, as the fan prevents various components from overheating and shutting down.

SOURCE: samsung SRS583HDP fridge not cooling. Side by side

Most likely the thermostat in the fridge, especially if it read 5 degrees until you reset it. Possibly the compressor in the fridge side as this fridge has twin cooling, or the circulating fan in the back of the fridge is frozen, which is a common problem as well.
Easiest things to try is to see if the fan is frozen and check if the fridge cooling is actually working. Turn off the fridge, remove the shelves, remove the 4 screws that hold in the bottom cover and the 2 screws that hold the water tank in. Cover should then come out a few inches. Reach behind and unplug the 2 plugs and pull out the cover. If the cover doesnt come out easily it may be glued to the back of the fridge by ice. Leave for a couple of hours and gently prize it off. Check for ice around the fan and that the fan spins freely. You could try sitting the cover inside the fridge, plug it in turn it back on for a few minutes (be careful) and then open the door and quickly look / listen to see if the fan is still spinning (it stops when you open the door). Leave the fridge off for a while until the ice disappears off the coils. Turn back on for half an hour. The coils should be icy again. Anything else call Samsung. If the deal in your country is the same as mine the fridge has a 2 year warranty but in the fine print the sealed compressor unit has five years on parts only. You could get the unit replaced for labour costs only. Check your warranty card.

SOURCE: Hi I have pressed the vacation

The settings will reset to a lower settting as the fridge/freezer will not be disturbed . So wait for the fridge to run and shut down and it will continue to run in this low mode to save power but to keep the food in prime condition. The fridge alone will not be shut down.

Not cooling and led blinking from top to bottom


Your refrigerator is in "Cooling Off" mode, or sometimes called "Store Display Mode", which basically allows everything in the fridge to function except for the Cooling system. Press and hold down the "Lighting" and "Freezer" buttons for 5 seconds until you hear the "Ding Ding". Your 'fridge will be working again.

Most refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer. I suggest that you give it some time, and make sure the small door or damper leading from the freezer to the fridge is open and not obstructed by any food items

Hi Heather and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. It took me over an hour but I did find your manual online. I first had to realize this was a UK model. Your manual is here:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001/DOCTYPE/IFU/DOCLANGUAGE/GB

You may have to go to his page first:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001

and enter this product code:

858615915000

Per the users manual there is a vaction mode and it is discussed on page 9 of the manual.

The alarms are listed on page 10 of the manual:

The Vacation mode shuts off the fresh food compartment completely and there is not a temp display. The icon is in the lower RH side of the display window and is sleleced with the menu button. Per the manual you should keep depressing the menu button until the Vacation icon is not longer displayed. (Icon is a beach lounger chair and umbrella)

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

It might be that your fridge went into something called 'demo mode' that shuts the compressor down so as not to waste electricity on the showroom floor. The freezer and fridge sides both start to warm up, but the temperatures shown on the outside of the door never change, so you don't know you have a problem until you open the fridge or freezer and find you have a melted mess. My Samsung is 7 years old and we run into this problem frequently when our power is on and off, like just recently with hurricane Ike. Per the Samsung website, the cure for 'demo mode' is to unplug the fridge for 1 minute then plug it back in. They also suggested pressing Power Freeze and Freezer Temp together for 8 seconds until you hear a chime to cancel demo mode. Good luck. I really dislike this machine.
