After a five day power outage my Samsung RS2533SW doesn't get cold and the top line of the single digit refrigerator temperature readout flashes on and off.

The interior lights of the Freezer and refrigerator turn on and the water dispenser works. None of the buttons on the front panel seem to do anything.

Please see the picture for more information on what is blinking.

Any assistance in resolving this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Try unplugging the frig for a few minutes to see if that will reset the computer, in the mean time I will find the service letter I remember seeing that addressed this issue..

SUBJECT: Unit does not work after a power failure


SYMPTOM: Refrigerator is not working and one segment of the display is


blinking.


REPAIR: This can be caused by a poor connection or a part failure


PROCEDURE:


1. After a power failure, one segment (figure 1)


is flashing. The exact segment that is


flashing varies depending on the failed part.


Table 1 shows the segment and the


corresponding defective circuit.


2. At the next power on cycle the unit


automatically performs a self-diagnostic


check. If an error is detected the defective


circuit will be displayed on one segment of the


seven segment displays.


3. Use Table 1 to determine the defective circuit and


correct the connection issue or repair the


defective circuit.


4. After repairing, reset the unit by pressing the


Power freeze and Power Cool buttons


simultaneously until the chime sound is heard.


Will see if I can copy the fault table, do not believe it will  let me in the pdf, will try.

Code is, "Ice Maker sensor". The unit will not cool if any of the senors are bad. Check for loose connection, short, cut wire, etc. Here is the ice maker if none of the above prove to be...Repairclinic part# 1133387

Thank you very much for your assistance. I am humbled by your knowledge. I can't wait to get home and start troubleshooting.

Do you know where I might find a schematics of the ice maker assembly?

So.....what have we learned so far about Samsung Refrigerators:

1) Defrost heater is built into the evaporator. Needs a sealed system repair to replace it.

2) If the IM goes on the fritz, it shuts the whole unit down. (Anyone remember the old Whirlpool flex tray units with the defrost timer built in?)


Should have stuck to making cellphones and VCRs, boys.

Not just the Ice Maker, ANY sensor including the ambient air sensor in the door hinge.

Ice macke not serviceable. Need to order the assembly if sensor is bad. However, If you are up to it you can try removing the sensor from the bottom of the tray and using some sort of elastic adhesive to attach this sensor...Repaiclinic part# 1075301  to the bottom of the tray, spicing the wires with good connectors. The sensors are the same only the ice tray sensor is fixed to it.

I was able to get this beast up and running by doing the following:

- I removed the IM

- I inspected all of the wires attached to the IM. Everything looked okay.

- I removed the sensor from the bottom of the IM and inspected it. It looked okay as well.

- I replaced the sensor and the IM in the freezer.

- I plugged the refrigerator into the outlet and held in the Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons for five seconds

This reset the computer and it is chilling as you read this.

I agree upon the fact that if the IM goes out it renders the entire machine useless. However, the error code to diagnose the problem was pretty neat.

I would like to thank everyone for their assistance. This was the last piece to put together after not having power for five days in 100+ degree F temperatures.

Was probably a loose connection at the sensor. Good Job!

I have a Samsung RS2533SW fridge about 3 years old.  It stopped working freeer and fridge part.  The digits flash on the front display.  If the door is open and I hold the light switch closed it blows air through the vents.  Than it sounds like the compressor is trying to come on then you can hear a click like a relay is kicking in then nothing!

I don't know where to go from here!  Any help would be much appreciated.

Great Web-Site  Samurai

I see that this post is relatively old but I thought I would pass along a link that I found during my research for problems I was having with my Samsung refrigerator – the information supplied came in very handy at solving my problem(s).

 

Here is the link

We have had a lot of problems with our Samsung refrigerator and just want to help other people solve their problems as others helped us – You know “Pay it forward”

 

Best of luck
