SOURCE: samsung refrigerator freezer not freezing

I just returned the same fridge to Lowe's where I bought it using the warranty for the same problem. The temperature sensors went out, and everyone said the computer board needed to be replaced but no one could seem to get it together enough to order us one. Month later we are getting a new fridge.

SOURCE: refrigerator cools freezer wont model rb215labp

I know that model very well and I would like to know how long you have owned it and will you or can you find someone that can perform some electrical test fo you. When Samsung made that brand they made a major mistake on the defrost heater elements. They were woven into the evaporator coil. If less that 5 years old it should fall under sealed parts warranty. When I look at a refrigerator from here there are so many possibilities of what is going on that I ask that this is not where to rate my solution. I see that you mentioned the digital controls but are they visible or gone whacked out? Sea Breeze

Why is Whirpool WRT111SFA 10.7 cubic feet not auto defrosting?


Hi Karen,

my name is Roger and i'd be glad to help you, most likely one of the components of the defrost system has failed. Or the drain got clogged and water is backing up and freezing over the air flow grids, inside the freezer.

Empty it and check the bottom of the freezer and back wall for ice build ups.

hope this helps

Refrigerator doesn't get colder than 55 degrees.


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Won't cool below 50 degrees


You could need a shot of freon in this unit. If the freezer is not freezing up. If the freezer is freezing up, one of your defrost parts may be out. I would start with the defrost heater, then check out the timer and t-stat afterwards. Call us for parts! Hope this solves your problem.
