Re: FRIDGE NOT COOLING

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I had a local technician try to repair my cooling issue. He spent > 17 hours to get it working. Put in a new compressor, flushed the lines with acid etc. But he did eventually get it working! ..... For 1 week, then it stopped again over the weekend.

 

Time to throw this thing out.

 

I am amazed there has not been more done by Samsung to address this. We are mostly all capable of checking the warranty on here, and that seems to be all the support can offer us, plus the $200 technician call out to verify it's not working.  Verry dissapointing.

I have had this Samsung Refrigerator Model RF4287HARS since 2011 and the first year was great. So I gave away my old side by side Whirlpool. Big MISTAKE! wish I had it now. I didn't realize there were so many issues with these computer circuitry models, I just wanted a beautiful model that kept food well and worked great for at least 10 years like all the rest. now, it is the refrigerator compartment not cooling properly. I called the repair service and they told me they no longer work on Samsung because of too many issues. what a nightmare, never again.

i am having similar issues. Here when you call them, they talk to you sweetly and how they care. I was told a technician team will call me and schdule an appointment. No one called for 15 days. So I called a local tech. They to charged me $90 for diagnosis and told me it iwll work. Nothing worked and now they are saying there is a control board problem and they have to get the part form Sansung. apparently the part is on back order. I cannot believe that a product that sells in large quantities cannot be supported quickly.

I am having the same issue as most people here with the fridge not cooling. The middle tray is working fine and so is the freezer. The error codes that are displayed are 22e and 25e. Should I buy a new defrost sensor / thermistor?

 

My model # is RF23HSESBSR/AA

My serial # is <Hidden>

We have the same problem on model RS25H5111SR/AA

We purchased the fridge on April 2015 from Best Buy.

We first had the icemaker break down but since we bought 3-year warranty from Best Buy, they repaired it for us.

Then we noticed the shelves in the freezer side kept falling and not fit properly.  

After numerous phone calls between Best Buy, (saying the shelves are not covered under the warranty) and Samsung saying (their one year warranty was over), we had to get Samsung’s local tech who seemed shady and very rude. He did not listen to my logic and insisted that the inside of the freezer was manufactured a little too wide and if I purchase a new shelf, it will not solve the problem.

Back and forth between Best Buy, Samsung and this local Samsung tech (who had us pay $240 for service and a shelve) which we will never get back.

Samsung gave Best Buy new shelves for us to pick up and it does not fit like the old one. The tech would not take back his shelf and of course will not give back any refund.

Now the fridge began to make loud noises since past week and today, the temperature went up to 64F and the blinking light kept going on the fridge temperature. I called Samsung and they told me the same as I read below, turning the power off for 2 minutes then .........

It got worse than when I began the un-plug theory and everything went south. I took the entire foodstuff to my garage fridge and now trying to figure out what to do next. 

Our garage fridge Gladator we bought over 10 years and never had a problem. 

My husband and I definitely DO NOT want to deal with the local rude rep that came to my house earlier this year.

We have our entire televisions throughout the house, Samsung brand and my husband kept saying that it’s the best brand but now we learned the hard and expensive way not to buy Samsung brand!

Samsung does not recommend the use of a hair dryer to your fridge,

  • Warning: DO NOT use a hair dryer to attempt to loosen the ice bucket. This will damage the refrigerator.

Gee SanSungCat, what do you suggest?? Your product is horrible and you as a HUGE WEALTHY company do nothing to help us consumers. Your customer service is only as bad if not worse than your fridgerators.
