Samsung is a great brand when it comes to home appliances. It offers a wide choice of refrigerators that are both sturdy and reliable. You have refrigerators available in different designs and varying capacities to choose from. As long as your Samsung fridge works fine you can rely on it to store your food, fruits, and vegetables, etc. for a pretty long time. However, what happens when your Samsung refrigerator is not cooling?

It’s at such time that you are left high and dry, having to manage spoilt contents inside the fridge such as your poultry, cooked food, vegetables, etc. This can put your life off-track and you somehow need to find a solution quickly! You’ll require your fridge to start working efficiently as soon as possible. In your hurry to set it right you may even consider DIY. But it’s definitely not a good idea because you lack the expertise to understand the working of the fridge and you may also not have the necessary tools for repair. Therefore, it’s best to look for authorized technicians to repair your fridge so that your life is back on track soon.

It’s important to understand the reasons why a Samsung refrigerator may not be cooling.


Here are a few common causes due to which a Samsung fridge may not cool:

1. Condenser coils are dirty:

The condenser coils of a Samsung refrigerator are usually located under the fridge. The function of the condenser coils is to dissipate heat as the refrigerant passes through them. If the condenser coils become dirty, they will be unable to dissipate heat effectively. Over a while as the debris builds up the coils get dirtier, impacting the ability of the fridge to cool. You can prevent this reason for malfunction of your fridge by ensuring that you check the condenser coils from time to time and do not allow debris to set in.

2. Condenser Fan Motor not Functioning:

The function of the condenser fan motor is to draw air through condenser coils and over the compressor. If due to some reason the condenser fan malfunctions, the fridge will not cool.

3. Malfunction of Evaporator Fan Motor:

The evaporator fan motor draws the air over the evaporator and circulates it over the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Depending on the design, some refrigerators may have more than one evaporator motor.

In refrigerators with one evaporator motor, the evaporator fan is located in the freezer. In case of a malfunction, the evaporator fan will not circulate air in the refrigerator section but the freezer may still get cold.

4. Start Relay Malfunction

The start relay works along with start winding to start the compressor. In case of a defect in the start relay, the compressor may not run at all with the result that the fridge may not cool.

5. Malfunction of Temperature Control Thermostat

The function of the temperature control thermostat is to direct the voltage to the compressor, evaporator fan motor, and condenser fan motor. In case a temperature control thermostat malfunctions, it prevents the refrigerant system from working, leading to the refrigerator not cooling.

Any of these defects can occur during the lifetime of a Samsung refrigerator. In such a situation it’s best to contact an authorized service center. The expert technicians will be able to diagnose the exact issue with the refrigerator and set it right.
