Samsung Fridge RS267TDRS Help 22e code plus more issues....

Recommended Posts

TexasDude

I have a Samsung Side by Side that is locked up on a 22e code. It has dual cooling in both the freezer and refrigerator. When I power on the refrigerator it immediately reads 22 E code. The lights are on inside, but nothing happens. I've done my homework, but a 22e code seems to be a simple refrigerator fan issue. However, wouldn't the freezer at least work if it was just the refrigerator fan? Again, the refrigerator is locked up and nothing can be done on the screen. Also, there is a clicking in the freezer door ice dispenser. The clicking sound looks like it's coming from the mechanism that turns the ice in the bin. 

I called a repairman and he said that both mother boards needed to be replaced at a minimum. He thought it could possibly have even more issues, but since he couldn't even get the refrigerator to do anything, that both motherboards needed to be replaced. Ugh. 

Thoughts? Thank you so much in advance

whats the background of this unit? meaning is it something you just bought or have been using for years? Sounds like you know how to do your homework so my best suggestion is to find the service manual online and try and go through diagnostics. I have only ever replaced one board on a samsung not a high failure part unless you have got hit with lightning or a power surge. Theory could be ref. fan shorted, throwing everything else out of wack.

It was a friend's refrigerator who used it as an extra fridge in his garage. We transported the refrigerator from his garage to my house this past weekend. I read online that I could lay it flat if I stood it up an equal amount of time. It was laid flat for the hour it took to get it from his house to mine. I then let it stand up for an entire day before I turned it on. It immediately through a 22e error.

Negative!!!! Maybe on an older fridge but no way on this one. Unplug it immediately! If your very lucky after a week and I mean most likely not, it will drain the oil back to compressor.

If that does not work, you may need someone that does sealed system work to repair this. Sorry wish I had better news.

This is true. had a shorted sensor shut one down. I would concentrate on the fan issue. Does it get voltage?
