samsung fridge freezer faults
welcome to our samsung fridge freezer faults review diy guide !
if you would like more info diy help - video reviews on samsung fridge freezer faults
there seems to be a lot of people searching google for "samsung fridge freezer cooling fan fault" -
i thought it would be best to clear up a few misleading facts about this - as just replacing the cooling fan alone will not resolve the problem
the problem actually stems from a choice of other components failing - predominantly the defrost element , when the element fails you get a build up of excess ice - this ice eventually finds its way onto the fan blades and makes fan to go noisy .
common short term repairs ?
- some people have stripped their fridge freezer down and defrosted fan area with a hair dryer etc - this normally lets appliance run for about month
- other people have found out to their expense that buying the fan assembly alone wont work - again appliance will run for about a month before noise comes back ( more due to the fact that appliance was probaly defrosted before fan was fitted)
- i have seen some posts on the diy sites where people have tried to modify the fan assembly by enlarging the polystrene around it etc - very dangerous, not recommended and doesnt work
you can get fridge freezer to run for about 1 month by defrosting fan area , replacing fan unit , never try to modifiy any components as it is extremly dangerous and doesnt actualy do anything to improve problem
the only way to cure this fault is to replace
- fan unit cover assembly
- defrost element assy
- defrost sensor
- thermal fuse
