What Are the Most Common Samsung Refrigerator Problems?

Common problems with Samsung refrigerators include an inability to get cold enough, the light not working, overflowing ice maker, water leakage and refrigerator becoming too noisy. Other problems include water dispenser not working, inability to defrost and ice maker not working.

A Samsung refrigerator sometimes fails to get cold enough if the evaporator fan motor is defective. If the evaporator is not working, no cold air enters the compartment. The problem is also caused by a dirty condenser coil preventing the dissipation of heat. If the light is not working, it points to a faulty bulb.

The ice maker develops overflowing problems when the water pressure in the inlet valve is low. This prevents the valve from closing fully when the power is shut. The Samsung refrigerator leaks water if the water tank assembly develops a crack. It may also be caused by a loose fitting valve or clogging of the freezing defrost drain.

The appliance produces noise if the fan motor is worn out. This makes a chirping noise, especially when the door is opened. The dispenser develops problems when the actuator is broken. This prevents the activation of switches powering the auger motor and the dispenser. Failure to defrost properly is caused by a burnt defrost heater assembly. This causes the frosting of the coils, blocking free air movement in the cooling system.
