My Samsung rfg238aars refrigerator has been giving me a lot of issues. The fridge compartment is working, but the freezer will not cool at all.

Here’s the sequence of issues in order as they happened:

  1. The freezer was leaking. Cleaned the evap line, did not fix problem.
  2. Freezer was icing over, really bad.
  3. Heard a loud grinding/humming noise. Evaporator fan seems to be running when I checked.
  4. Humming/grinding noise stopped. Freezer stopped working altogether. Cleaned condenser coils. No luck.

I’ve been searching for answers online but can’t pinpoint what the issue is.

    What does the freezer digital display indicate? Is it giving you an error reading? How old is the fridge? – HoneyDo Jan 16 at 3:52
  • There’s no error display other than when I unplug it, 6A/88 and 88. I believe 2014? We bought it used. – D0cpaul Jan 17 at 4:06
  • I was going to suggest you unplug it and then plug it in again. Sounds like you did that. Sometimes that will reset the logic board. – HoneyDo Jan 17 at 4:19
