Why Is My Samsung Freezer Not Cold Enough?

Samsung freezers might not be cooling enough because of problems like defrost system failures and dirty condenser units. problems with the fan and leaky door gaskets. You may not see the issue immediately, but your refrigerator and freezer are likely to get too hot. To avoid food spoilage, you’ll need to quickly solve the issue. How to prevent air from leaking into your Samsung freezer. If the Samsung freezer is too hot to keep the ice cream frozen, or if there is lots of frost inside the freezer, warm moist air could be entering your refrigerator.

Check all door gaskets to ensure they are not damaged and replace any damaged door gaskets. If your gaskets look good but the door is sagging on its hinges or creating gaps between the gaskets and the cabinet, you can adjust the hinges of your Samsung refrigerator to make sure that the gaskets are able to are able to seal the cabinet. If you see frost buildup only on the back freezer wall, then the automatic defrost system might have failed. The defrost system is effective and melts off the frost from the coils in the evaporator each 8 hours to ensure clean air passages throughout the evaporator, so that the freezer and refrigerator compartments are able to cool properly. Frozen builds up on the back freezer wall as well as the evaporator if the automatic defrost mechanism fails.

The Samsung freezer can’t cool properly because of the accumulation of frost on the evaporator. What can you do to fix other issues that prevent your freezer from becoming enough cold If you notice that the evaporator fan isn’t working when you look for cooling in the freezer compartment. If it’s not working you should replace the fan that is evaporating. Condenser coils that are dirty can cause cooling problems within the freezer. You should disconnect the electrical outlet of your Samsung refrigerator to look for dust and dirt buildup. If they are dirty Clean the condenser tubes.

Make sure you wash the coils each when you perform regular maintenance on your Samsung refrigerator. Check to see whether the condenser fan is working in the event that you notice that your freezer is not cooling enough. If the condenser fan does not operate, it cannot cool refrigerant efficiently. If the condenser fan isn’t turning on, you must replace it.

These Repairs May Help Solve the issue with your refrigerator.

Replace the Samsung refrigerator freezer sensor. The Samsung refrigerator freezer sensor (also called the defrost bimetal termination thermostat) trips when it detects that the temperature is enough to overheat. The defrost thermostat shuts down the power supply to the heater when it is triggered. If the defrost sensors is triggered due to a malfunction in its operation, there is a chance that frost will build up on the fins of the evaporator. This can cause the refrigerator and freezer to not cool properly. The volt/ohmmeter can be used to check the continuity of defrost sensors. If the sensor does not show continuity, then replace it at zero degrees F.

Clean the Samsung refrigerator’s compressor coils.  Dust-covered Samsung refrigerator compressor coils could hinder the refrigerator and freezer from cooling properly. Cleaning condenser tubes should be done in accordance with the instructions provided in the owner’s guide. Unplug the Samsung refrigerator prior to cleaning and accessing the coils. The coils can be found behind most Samsung refrigerators. It is possible to clean the condenser tubes using a brush.

Replace the Samsung condenser fan in the refrigerator The fan is located inside the Samsung refrigerator’s machine compartment, next to its compressor. It moves air across the condenser coils in order to chill the refrigerant that is hot coming from the compressor. The refrigerant first gets chilled before passing through the expansion before entering the condenser fan. Replace the condenser fan if it has been damaged.

Repair Samsung’s refrigerator defrost unit: The refrigerator of Samsung is able to defrost itself on a regular basis, removing frost off the compressor. This increases the exchange of heat. The compressor shuts down and the heating element for defrost turns on. During defrosting the frost melts from evaporator fins. Condensate flows to an evaporator drip tray beneath the evaporator. It it flows through the defrost drain tube into the drain pan close to the compressor’s machine compartment. The condensate water will evaporate out of the drain tray prior to the next freeze cycle. If the defrost procedure fails, identify and repair the problem.

Replace the Samsung fridge Evaporator fans: The evaporator fan is mounted on the assembly of the evaporator. It circulates air throughout the cabinet to cool the appliance. Replace the fan in case it is damaged.

Replace the Samsung refrigerator’s temperature control board. The temperature control, also known as an electronic control board, is located inside the machine chamber adjacent to the compressor. It can be found behind a panel at the back of Samsung refrigerator. The temperature control boards controls the compressor, as well as other major components of the Samsung refrigerator. You can test it by using the diagnostic tests found in the tech manual for the refrigerator. If the temperature controller board fails to perform as it should or stops functioning then replace it.

The Samsung refrigerator temperature thermostat thermostat should be replaced. The thermostat is fitted with a sensor tube which detects the temperature inside the Samsung refrigerator. The cabinet’s temperature is managed by the thermostat by turning on and off the compressor according to the sensor tube that senses temperature. If it isn’t able to sense the temperature properly or does not cycle the compressor in a proper manner the thermostat should be replaced.

The Samsung refrigerator thermostat needs to be replaced. If your refrigerator isn’t cooling properly the thermistor could be defective. A damaged thermistor could send temperature information to the thermostat. Replace the Samsung freezer timer in the refrigerator. The motor of the defrost-timer is the one that drives and controls the parts. If the control contacts of the defrost timer enter the defrost cycle the compressor ceases to run and the defrost heater is turned on for a specified period of time to melt frost off of the evaporator fins. This improves the efficiency of heat exchange over the evaporator. When the specified period of defrost is over, the defrost timer contacts switch back to enable normal cooling operation within the Samsung refrigerator. If the defrost temperaturer doesn’t activate, it will need to be replaced. Bad contacts could cause the heater to not activate or to continuously energize. In such cases, you should replace the timer.

Adjust the freezer or refrigerator door: Refrigerator or freezer doors swing on hinges that could be bent or damaged. As time passes the doors can begin to sag, allowing warm humid air to enter the freezer or refrigerator door, which causes excessive frost that can eventually cause the drain tube to freeze. The refrigerator repair involves aligning and fixing the hinges in order to ensure they work correctly.

Replace the Samsung refrigerator gasket. The gasket is attached to the refrigerator or freezer door panel. It prevents air from getting into the cabinet, or leaving it once the door is shut. A damaged gasket lets warm, moist air in the Samsung refrigerator even when the door is closed, causing excessive cooling and frost issues. If the gasket is damaged or ripped, you can replace the door seal.

Replace the Samsung refrigerator’s electronic control board. The electronic control board is also referred to as the main power control board or control board (PCB), controls the compressor and defrost cycles. The electronic control board sends current to the compressor and fans when it senses the refrigerator needs to cool down. The control board’s electronic circuit also receives signals from temperature sensors to monitor the temperature inside the refrigerator and freezer. This information is used to control the defrost process. A diagnostic test can be performed on the electronic control board in order to verify its functionality. There are many tests that you can perform however the most well-known test is called the Forced Defrost test. For directions on how to run the diagnostic tests, consult the tech sheet. If the controller’s electronic board isn’t working, replace it.

Routine Samsung refrigerator maintenance Cleaning the condenser tubes should be done according to the instructions provided in the owner’s guide. Before you can access and clean the coils inside your Samsung refrigerator, disconnect it. On most refrigerators the coils are located hidden behind the front grill on the bottom. By using a coil brush remove the condenser coils. It is also possible to change the water filter, and clean the bottom grille. Adjust the hinges if they do not close tightly.
