Hi My samsung double door fridge with Model No RS26FANS, has a problem, it doesn't cool like it is suppose to the freezer says -16 and when you put it to -25 it goes back to -16 and the fridge temperature said 1. So I am not sure if it is the pc board, because the fridge is still cooling but not like it is suppose to and not freezing like it is suppose to, or does it need gas or something. This fridge is about 4 years old.

Mini Danby Fridge Won't cool but compresser is running very HOT!(Model DCR412BLS) the fridge has just recently been moved into a warmer environment without air conditioning. As well, it had accumulated quite a bit of built up ice which has been removed (because i unplugged the fridge to let it drain). I thought that may solve the problem, however now it is getting cold in the freezer compartment without any circulation into the fridge. It hsa been suggested that it is a gas leak. As well, I have

I have a Dometic RM2820. The refrigerator does not cool on electric or gas. When put on electric the freezer cools but the refrigerator does not cool. I replaced the control board. When on gas the burner ignites runs for a minute and then shuts off and the check light comes on? What can I do?
My refrigerator stopped cooling, but I still have power and lights, however, my digital cooling settings are no longer lit. Is it possible my board is bad and how do I go about fixing this problem, or can there be another problem? I really don't want to purchase another frige, as mine is only 5 yrs old. I have a volt meter & light electrical background. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Need Help! Hello! I have a Frigidaire Refrigerator # FRT21LR7AW about five years old. The problem is that it's not cooling the lower part and the top freezer is freezing the coils and blocks the vent that lets the air circulate down. I have to keep melting the ice with hair dryer in order for bottom part to get cool. Can someone help me with this problem with any advice or parts that may need to be replaced. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank You! mjpagan

Purchased GE PFS22SISBSS french door bottom freezer four years ago. One year ago replaced mother board. Last week, replaced mother board again. Solved the clicking problem, improved cooling, but it still isn't cooling properly either in freezer or refrigerator. Everyday it works for a few hours, then freezer completely thaws and refridgerator warms to 50+ degrees F. No frost in freezer. Tech says he thinks I need a new compressor for > $600. Is it possible that it could be something less c

MY Samsung Refrigerator Model# RS263TDPN is not cooling, I have had two different companies out to address the problem. The 1st company replaced the main power inverter board behind the rear panel at the top of fridge. This dis not fix it. The 2nd company tested my old board and said the voltages were present, they then ordered both DC Fans (one for the freezer-one for the fridge) the unit has been running for 5 days and no cooling, I have verified that the fans are running by placing a ma

GE Frige GTS22WC. Stopped cooling top&bottom. Found on back side of pcb, that the compressor relay had one pin blackened and the solder gone to the trace. Resoldered and it cools, now. However, I am not sure if I fixed the initial cause of the problem. Wondering if I should replace the PCB and compressor relay/O.L.??...Or, could the freon charge be low, resulting in overload and a domino effect of problems.

Lost all cooling to both the refrigerator and freezer. It started by popping the protected outlet in the wall cutting all electricity to all wall outlets in the room. Then I noticed things thawing in the freezer. I ran an extension cord into another room in the house that kept the refrigerator running but that electrical outlets were not the problem. That's when I lost all cooling to both the freezer and refrigerator. What may be the problem?

Model RM 2811 Dometic refrigerator for lp-gas and electric operation:
problem is that the control pannel switches rendomly from auto AC to Gas and I want it to operate on AC only.
trailer os located near the sea shore and I think that corrosion may be the problem. there is 15vdc at the control panel and 115 vac , however I don't know how much current is required to operate the relay properly.
One problem may be high dc volts it should be around 13.5 max your convertor may be developing to much voltage. Relay is on dc side you have more than enough. The contol board would be your next check. Some places that sell them may be willing to che ...

My compressor cooling fan quit- the compressor still runs. I unplugged the unit then plugged it back in. The cooling fan ran for about 15 seconds, then shut off again. Is the problem with the main control circuit board or with the compressor control board?.....
The problem is most likely the condensor fan motor is starting to fail. This is easy to check, First remove the back cover and when the compressor is running you should have voltage going to the fan motor if you do the fan motor needs replacing if no ...

Both the refrigerator and freezer has stopped cooling, with the refrigerator going out first and then the freezer getting noticeably warmer a few days later. The refrigerator still seems to be working. This problem started around christmas and the repairman replaced the entire circuit board stating that it was the problem. After that it worked fine until about 3 weeks later it started exhibiting the same behavior. The fridge still sounds the same, nothing different except that it no longer cools

I purchased double door 310 ltr. Samsung refrigerator in 2006. We fixed refrigeator compartment thermostat at low cool and went out for two months in May 2010. . When we returned increased cooling.

I have a Norcold 323 Refrigerator in a camper that will not cool when operating on AC but does work on gas, ( I cant test the DC as I dont have a 12 volt power sorce). After running in on gas for a while I whitched over to AC and it appears to be running. What could be the problem?
The unit is only used a couple times a year since it was purchased in 2005 and hasent been used for the past year. Does the unit require a jump start with the gas after sitting unused for long peroids of time

GE Profile 23.3 Cu. Ft. Counter-Depth Side-by-Side Refrigerator - Stainless-Steel
Freezer fan does not come on . Thought that replacing the DC motor would "fix" the problem. It did not. The compressor works as the freezer gets cold, but the fan never works so the refrigerator side does not get cool. Have had a problem previously with ice maker freezing over. (Have had to shut off the icemaker and "blowdry" the frozen water from the icemaker). It may have been water or ice that got into the fan to have caused the problem? But as I stated before, I did replace the fan motor and
