I have a Samsung side by side fridge Rs21 hdtts.Bought it in 2010.

No water flowing into the ice maker reservoir. I poured water into the reservoir, but no ice dropped after 10 hours. Next day I unplugged refrigerator opened freezer door and thawed it out for about two and a half hours. I used a hair dryer near/along the water outlet tube thaw. Then plugged the refrigerator back in turned the ice maker on and after 8 hours no water in the reservoir. I've seen the prongs raised up making me believe the sweep process is working. . Thanks
Well, if the ice maker were working properly, when you poured water, assuming you poured A, enough water, and B, not too much water, you should have seen some cubes drop into the bucket. But since you did not get any ice cubes, I would have to say th ...

My Danby DWC310BLA wine cooler, just came back from service for a broken thermostat (when left on minimum, the refrigerator would cool all the way down to the low 40s). It is now, again doing the same thing it did before it went in for service - the servicer claimed it held a higher temperature after they fixed it - mid 40s after being on for 2 hours.
I am very frustrated, what can I do?

NOT OPERATING... I now use this fridge as a garage/beer fridge. The power was lost for a few hours and now it won't cool. I have checked the fan, running. I have checked the compressor, don't know if it is running but it is hot. I even called Whirlpool. They told me to they would send out a Service Tech, they would cover parts, but not labor. When I asked about the labor charges they told me to call the Service Tech. The air blowing out of the vents is cool but nowhere near cold. Help me please.

LG LRFC22750ST fridge is 3 years old and the top half has stopped cooling. The freezer seems to work ok. This happened a couple of weeks ago where I opened the door and found the refrigerator half completely warmed and about 4 hours later, it began cooling again but this time it is not.
During the Automatic defrosting cycle there is a 60 Deg F thermostat on the evaporator that must cycle to terminate the defrost cycle and restart the compressor. If for some reason the defrost heating element is not coming on (failed / open / wire ...

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator model # 253.52322200. It starts up and cools fine for awhile, maybe 4 to 5 hours. Then it stops cooling. I think it runs until it reaches the correct temperature then the compressor shuts off and wont restart. There is a loud buzz, which I guess is the overload relay, that buzzes for about 10 seconds then stops. Then it will do it again about 10 minutes later. At this point I have to shut the freezer off and wait about 4 hours before the compressor wil

Hello, I own an Admiral Refrigerator (Admiral Ultima 2000) and the evaporator motor occassionally squeals. If I turn off the refrigerator for a while and turn it back on a few hours later, the fan will run for about a half hour before it starts to squeal again. I removed the back cover of the freezer compartment and you can see that the fan stops turning when it squeals. Can you please assist me in diagnosing what the problem is. Thanks

I recently moved a "new" side by side frigidaire from dallas texas to lubbock texas. It was "laid on its side for the first three hours of the move and then stood up for the last three hour trip. Upon unloading it was plugged in but dosn't cool properly. The ref. area cools slightly but the freezer not at all. I understand that the compressor oil is probably displaced by the move. How do I get it to work? Do I need a service repairman? How do I check to see if the compressor is ruined? Thank
Should have let stand for 24 hours beofer pluging in, quite possible that compressor oils havealready been pumped up into the evaporator area, in which case will problably cause major restrictions in coolant.. try letting stand for a while and then r ...
