Samsung RS265TDRS fridge side not that cold
« on: March 15, 2014, 02:47:21 PM »

I have the fridge temp at the lowest of 34. It's not really getting that cold inside. Anyway to adjust something?

had the same problem,  most likely a defrost problem in the fridge,  mine was the defrost heater/heating element.  Not easy to replace but can be done,  you have to order the whole assembly then remove just the heater.   could also be be the heater fuse or defrost thermistor,  both of which are much easier to replace.

Something is blocking airflow across the fresh food evaporated coil. Don't buy into all this "bad thermister" hype. Not on a sammy!
