Freezer/cooler separator burning HOT

3 posts in this topic

Hello, so my cousin asked me to take a look at his Samsung RS2630sh side by side after he noticed that the wall that separates the freezer and the cooler was extremely hot then he noticed that the LEDs on the controls on the front door where no longer on and the fridge was no longer cooling. I don't have much experience on these residential units and was hoping to get some advise, so first i check my power supply which was ok then i check my transformer and that was also working properly check compressor for opened, grounded winding also ok evap fans are not running im thinking it might be the board that is located on front door because it controls the box temp any ideas? Thanks also what would cause that wall to heat up? Does this model have a yoder loop between the wall/ door?

yes, most Fridges have Yoder Loops ..

Check to see if the Fan by the Comprersor is running (when the Compressor runs)

and clean its Condenser Coils
