This unit has a history of problems on the refrigerator side. the basic reset is press and hold down the 2 middle buttons on the freezer at the same time. As a general rule the number one problem is in the mother board. usually you can replace it and everything will work.
My Samsung refrigerator did the same thing.
\015\012Your evaporator is frozen over with ice and even though the evaporator fan runs, there's no air flow. The evaporator coil is fairly easily accessed at the back of the inside or the refrigerator by removing several screws inside the refrigerator that hold the panel that covers the evaporator coil. I defrosted mine once to twice weekly for several weeks until I fixed the problem. There will be ice in the insulating foam passageways on the back of the panel too. You can't see this without removing the fan from the panel.
\015\012Here's what mine required: I replaced the computer board, the thermal fuse on the evaporator coil and the temperature sensor on the evaporator coil, one item at a time until it started cooling normally It has worked well several months since I did this and the tank for the water dispenser no longer freezes.
\015\012Samsung was of no help since it was out of warranty by two months. They told me I could take my refrigerator to one of their repair stations, most likely in another state. They didn't offer any troubleshooting tips. The Koreans have a lot to learn about doing business in the USA. We expect our refrigerators to be reliable and operate for many years. I suppose it isn't this way in Korea.
\015\012A refrigerator barely over a year old should not have problems of this type. I spent over $300 for the various parts and a manual. However, I once again have a nice refrigerator.
\015\012I have two Samsung computer monitors that failed under warranty. I had to ship them back and was without them for two to three weeks but Samsung repaired or replaced them and they are still working three years later.
\015\012Because of my refrigerator experience, Samsung lost the sale of a big LCD TV to me sometime in the future as well as any other appliances.

Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator water dispenser is not working. The ice maker is hardly making any ice but there are a few cubes that have come out. I defrosted the refrigerator last night as I thought the line was frozen but still not working. The temp in the freezer and refrig sides are adequate. The water seems to be the problem. I checked the filter, checked to make sure the line wasn't kinked at bottom left or that the "dispense lock" was pressed. Water still won't come out. Any advice is

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig (no ice maker) Freezer works fine. The refrigerator side is not cooling. I have cleaned out the vent between the freezer and the refrigerator section by defrosting the entire unit. I have a feeling its not working properly, based on the fact that the venting box is still leaking water. How can I fix the not cooling issue and the leaking water???
Check to make sure the evap fan is running.IF so, then let unit defrost, then turn back on, check for air comming thru top of refrig vent, if air moving ok, then let run for a few days and see if refrig warms again, if so then check for frost b ...

I have a GE Profile Refrigerator pfcf1njwabb with water dispenser issues. The water was only trickling out of the dispenser and changed the filter although the filter light wasn't on. When I remove the filter water sprays out of the connection and the only way to stop it is to turn off the water or re-install the filter. The water still just trickles out but occasionally acts like it's starting to work correctly.
It seems like there is an issue with the water filter socket. It may be clogged with sediment, or malfunctioning. The water filter socket has a bypass in it so that when you release the filter, it bypasses it so you can still get water. the sediment ...

I have a GE refrigerator. Model GSS22JERE CC. The problem - water and ice maker stop working. I have already replaced the filter to see if it was clogged, but still doesn't work. I was thinking about replacing the water valve. But I'd hate to spend money on something that might still be working. Is there anyway I can troubleshoot the part or do you have better advice for me?
You can use a jumper power cord to test the valve or a ohm meter . ohm meter is best you can get one from harbor freight or radio shack for about 10.00 or less . . ck the coils and if bad replac the valve ...

Our side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator is not cooling as much as it should; we have had to put it up to the maximum settings. The panel between the freezer and the refrigerator feels very hot, so hot that you can?t put your hand on it too long without burning it, but it comes and goes on the heating of the panel. We have kept up with replacing the water filter. Also the ice maker has quit working. With the replacement of the last water filter the water dispenser in the door has started sput

I have a 3 year old Samsung RS267LBBP side-by-side refrigerator. The cooling comparment(not the freezer) has frozen up twice in the last 6 month.

I have a Kenmore coldspot refrigerator with the freezer on top. (Model 106.74269401) I was having trouble with my kitchen faucet dripping, so I turned off the water to the whole house to check it out. When I turned the water back on, my water dispenser was no longer working. It worked before I shut off the water, though. I changed the water filter, thinking maybe that was the problem, but it still doesn't work.

Samsung RS267TDRS Refrigerator -- no water coming from door dispenser. Water line to back of fridge works fine. Water filter inside fridge fills with water, and it makes ice like clockwork. But no water comes out of door dispenser. We got a few trickles after it was installed, but that slowed down to drips, and now nothing at all. Is it possible the line inside the freezer door is frozen? Any other suggestions?
