We agree, they stuck, we have Samsung washer and dyer that we have had to repair, less than 4 years old, and now the refrigerator, Never again, not even a T. V. Buyer beware, stick to GE.
I had this exact same issue (starting July 2018). My fridge section would not go below 54 deg. I read the comments and figured out that the issue is in the evaporator fan section which gets frozen. There are a few youtube videos too on how to fix it but I found it too time consuming.
What I did:
Disconnected the fridge and let it defrost for 2 days. Cleaned the fridge and connected it back again.
Give it 4-5 hours and your fridge should be back to 38 deg or whatever temp you set.
Hope this helps.
I have the same problem as everyone else on here. Refrigerator fan started making a loud noise for a few days and then the refrigerator stopped cooling to the 34 degree set point. Model RF28HFEDTSR/AA. It appears to me that Samsung is aware of this issue but does not want to repair it.
My next step is to file a complaint with the State of California or BBB.
My fridge started the same thing tonight..
Was making a "clicking or tapping" noise from the back..
Unplugged it and plugged it back in..
It's set for 37, but is showing 58..
We just spent a couple of hundred dollars on groceries, and now they'll be lost..
I am sorry to hear that you are having this experience with your fridge. Please provide me with your complete model code and serial number to the link below and I will be glad to verify the warranty status on your unit and look into this matter for you.
It appears that this is an on-going issue (based on posts in this forum). I have the French door unit (out of warranty, of course) and have been experiencing ice build up on the cooling coils in both the refrigerator and freezer and have had repair service several times for this issue only for it to re-occur. Right now the loud noise is coming from the freezer, again. I am not putting another penny into repairs. Samsung's products are some of the most expensive on the market and they are nothing but junk. NEVER again will I purchase a Samsung product.
