Samsung Freezer not staying cold
Hi! Last week I had a problem with our Samsung side by side refrigerator, not dumping ice in the ice maker. I actually used this website & was able to find some information to get that working. We did the following:
- Removed items throughout for improved airflow
- Husband vacuumed the coils (wasn’t able to remove the front plate for underneath, but vacuumed the front area. Also, he vacuumed the back as best he could without unplugging the appliance)
- Changed freezer temperature to the maximum coldest
- Bought an appliance thermometer and put it inside
And the next morning by lunchtime, we had ice again and the temperature was under 9 degrees! Success!
It was working fine for 2-3 days, however, it seemed like with the freezer so cold, the door got so cold the buttons wouldn’t work without pushing with extreme pressure. So he lowered the temperature 1 notch a couple days later because of the buttons issue. Now, the thermometer has started creeping back up again in temperature, thus the ice maker is no longer working properly, and the food items are not staying frozen as well. We have increased the temperature to the maximum coldest again, FYI.
Does anyone have any advice? Do you think it’s the coils still or possibly something else?
