American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok

I have a Samsung sr-s2028cvw american fridge freezer. The freezer side is working fine but the fridge side is not cooling properly. Inside it's fine at the bottom but warm at the top. We'd stopped getting any water from the dispenser - I presumed because it was so cold outside (-15) but when I looked behind the veg drawers saw the water tank had frozen. I think I read somewhere that this might mean the fan had frozen too to stop circulating the air and should work again once thawed. So turned off last night bu today switched back on and although freezer is back to temp (-19), fridge is struggling at 12. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

I have a samsung fridge freezer model no RSH1DTMH and the fridge will not go lower than 13degrees and the freezer and water dispenser seem ok. The fridge freezer is only 3 years old. Any ideas/


We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.

I have a samsung SR-S2028cvw American style fridge freezer. The temperature on the dials are at the coolest but both the fridge and freezer are warming up to the warmest temperature before the motor kicks...


Try hoovering the cooling rad on the back of the fridge freezer, as this tend to clog up with dust and other matter, which reduces the cooling efficiency
