Samsung refrigerator temp
« on: July 07, 2018, 10:16:04 AM »

I have a samsung Rf31FMESBSR. The fridge does fine getting down to temperature (set at the lowest setting of 35) but the problem is that on the front display it reads 78 degrees and does not vary at all. Iím wondering if maybe one of the circuit boards in the back of the unit needs replaced or is there a thermometer in the unit that could go bad? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

There is a lot that can go bad.Is the compressor and fan by compressor running.This is complicated refrigerator may want to call for service. Here is a service manual to go by if you fill you can do it.

Maybe I wasnít clear. The fridge is cold. I bought a thermometer to check the temp and it even gets below freezing inside the fridge after a few days. Its just the front display that reads 78 all of the time without any change

I bet its a bad fridge thermister.  They are cheap.  If its bad the control won't know the temp.
its in the evaporator cover
