Samsung Refrigerator Repair

Refrigerator failure is one of the most unpleasant problems, because it is the refrigerator that is tied to almost the entire kitchen, and spoiled food can significantly spoil the smell both inside the refrigerator and in the kitchen itself. In short, if you have a problem using your refrigerator, you shouldn't procrastinate - it's better to contact the proven professionals at Chula Vista Appliance Service Center right away. Our company performs work related to warranty and post-warranty repair of refrigeration equipment. Specialists perform Samsung Refrigerator Repair in San Diego County and on time.

Major refrigerator breakdowns

  • A number of refrigerator breakdowns are diagnosed by increased noise, or not typical noise. Therefore, if your refrigerator makes a lot of noise, you can clearly hear the knocking in the motor, then most likely, the breakdown is not far off. A properly working refrigerator should run quietly. Breakdowns can be repaired by our Samsung Refrigerator Repair and Service technicians.
  • When your refrigerator starts up, you hear a loud banging noise. Knocking when you turn the motor on or off is usually due to the fact that the frames of the various fasteners - from the condenser mounting and installation bolts - have loosened. There are many fasteners inside the refrigerator, and only an experienced Samsung Refrigerator Repairs technician can tell by the sound which specific area is the frame or bolt that requires additional fixation. 
  • Knocks can also cause damage to the refrigerator case, improper installation of the refrigerator, as well as the condensation tube, or rather its fixation. When the bolts are tightened and secured, the suspicious knocks go away, and the refrigerator starts working normally. Repairmen will do post-warranty Samsung Refrigerator Repair and Service.
  • Refrigerator won't turn on. If the light in your house is not turned off, the voltage in the socket meets the standards, there may be several reasons.  
  • The starting capacitor has broken down. It is fairly easy to quickly replace it and the refrigerator will work again. Masters, specializing in Samsung Refrigerator Repair, will diagnose your equipment.
  • You hear the humming of the refrigerator motor, but it does not turn on. Such symptoms are caused by a broken compressor, or a jammed compressor. Also, the humming of the motor can be caused by improperly wired compressor contacts. If you contact our company, our Samsung Refrigerator Repair and Service specialists will fix this problem.
  • The refrigerator motor turns on and then turns off. It is connected with the relay protection system. 
  • Refrigerator fails to cool when the compressor and motor are working properly. Evaporator does not freeze, the compressor does not heat (the compressor is close to the back of the refrigerator, which usually has its "back" to the wall. This part of the refrigerator is either noticeably warm or hot, depending on the model. Generally, under normal conditions, this part of the refrigerator is always warm. 
  • If it is barely warm, it means you have had the wrong refrigerant charge and there is too much refrigerant. If Freon is overdosed, the fridge does not work properly, the pressure in all internal nodes of the fridge increases and if it is not recharged to the norm in time, it can fail completely, having lost all its functionality.
  • Refrigerant leakage has similar symptoms as refrigerant overflow in the system, with the difference that in addition to defrosting the refrigerator, you may find oily stains in puddles under the refrigerator or in the refrigerator itself. Samsung Refrigerator Repair technicians will fix this problem in no time.

If the refrigerator suddenly stopped cooling or at all refused to respond to turn on, then you should contact a professional service center. This means that the right solution is to diagnose the unit in the conditions of Chula Vista Appliance Service Center by a specialist in refrigeration equipment. You shouldn't forget that refrigerator repair by unqualified craftsmen can lead to the deterioration of the unit's performance. Samsung Refrigerator Repair and Service specialists will be able to quickly identify the source of the problem.

You came to your SAMSUNG fridge as usual, but noticed that the display has changed: the display shows RD code instead of temperature. You can also notice that the fridge is not working properly: either poorly freezing or, on the contrary, over-freezing. You realize that you need a Samsung refrigerator repair Bonita. Let’s look into whether this is the case:

Deciphering the error

The RD error is typical only for Samsung refrigerator models with the No Frost system. It means that the air valve malfunctioned: it became jammed, and it stopped regulating cold air flow into the fridge compartment from the No Frost evaporator in the freezer compartment.

How to fix the rd error yourself

Sometimes it helps solve the problem by completely defrosting the fridge (for at least 24 hours). It happens that moisture gets on the flap. When it freezes, it blocks the damper movement. It is blocked either in the open position, when cold air constantly enters the chamber and the fridge compartment over freezes, or in the closed position, when air from the Zero Frost evaporator does not enter the fridge compartment at all, and does not cool. If after defrosting the refrigerator, the rd error disappeared, but a week or two later the code appeared again, you will have to turn to a master: you need to repair the Samsung refrigerator because it is defective.

Possible malfunctions that require repair

According to the experience of the masters of Bonita Appliance Repair Company, most often, the rd code occurs in Samsung due to breakdowns of the following nodes.

1. Faulty shutter motor
It is responsible for moving the damper to a predetermined position. If the motor is broken when the damper is in the open position, it will freeze the refrigerator compartment. If the damper is broken in the closed position, it will become warm in the refrigeration compartment.

2. Reed breakage
A reed sensor detects the position of the flap and transmits the information to the control module. If it fails, the control module “doesn’t understand” what position the damper is in, and the display shows error rd. If the damper is wedged in the open position, the refrigerating chamber freezes heavily. If the flap is wedged in the closed position, the refrigerating compartment, on the contrary, does not cool.
According to the experience of our workshop, the most frequent failures are the “short” reed switches on the old Samsung models.

3. Faulty defrosting system Know Frost
The Know Frost system allows the refrigerator to work without defrosting. There is an evaporator in the freezer. It has a built-in defrost heating element that is activated by the defrost sensor and melts the frost on the evaporator. If the system stops working, the evaporator gets covered with ice. Gradually the ice blocks the air duct to the refrigerating compartment, the damper becomes frozen and jams. This prevents cold air from the freezer from entering the refrigerator compartment, and it becomes warm there.

In the defrost system one or more of the following parts can fail:
– defrost sensor;
– fuse;
– Defrost timer.

4. Control module defective
Probably there are burned-out radio elements on the board and oxidized or burned-out tracks/contacts in the circuit of the damper control. Therefore, the air damper is “stuck” in one position. And already for this reason the refrigerating compartment does not cool or, on the contrary, it over freezes.

5. The silicone seal on the air damper is worn out
The silicone seal is used to ensure a tight connection between the door and the opening. When the gasket wears out, the baffle plate will begin to catch on the edges of the opening where the cold air is blowing out. As a result, it can get “jammed” in one of the positions and the cooling compartment will stop cooling or, conversely, cold air will constantly flow into it and it will over-freeze.
With severe wear and tear, cold air may also enter the compartment even when the flap is closed due to poor sealing.

6. Damaged shutter wiring or contacts
The contacts are likely burned or oxidized due to prolonged use or high humidity. It is not uncommon for mice or rats to chew through the wiring in residential areas.
