Like any appliance, Samsung refrigerators sometimes break down. In the experience of San Diego Appliance Repair Service Center, the following parts break down most often in this brand of refrigerators.
Here are the breakdowns when you need Samsung refrigerator repair San diego
Compressor Motor Breakdown
The compressor is responsible for pumping freon through the cooling circuit. In case of its breakage, the refrigerator stops working. In most cases, the cause is a breakage of the starting or working winding, winding short circuit to the housing, interwinding short circuits, or wear of the motor.
Control board failure
In electronically controlled refrigerators, the board “controls” the operation of the equipment. It receives and processes signals from all nodes and gives them commands. If the control board fails, the refrigerator begins to work incorrectly. The causes of module malfunction are most often related to power surges or moisture on the board.
In the control module, the radio elements fail, the contacts get oxidized or burnt, and the microcircuit tracks get burnt or rotten.
Defrost sensor breakage in models with No Frost
Defroster – defrost sensor in Samsung models. The defroster turns the evaporator defrost on and off at the command of the defroster. If it is out of order, the refrigerator does not defrost and the evaporator “overgrows” with ice.
Often the sensor breaks down together with other elements of the defrosting system: fuse, timer, or heater.
Fuse breakage of defrost system in models with No Frost
The purpose of the fuse is to protect the defrost system from overheating. It fails due to a broken defrost sensor. If the defrost fuse does not trip, the temperature rises so high that the fuse melts, the circuit breaks, and the defrost stops working.
Defrost timer breakdown in models with No Frost
The defrost timer, based on signals from the defroster, counts down and activates/deactivates the evaporator defrost heater, simultaneously turning the compressor motor off and on. Electronic timers have a defrost chip that breaks, electromechanical ones have a burned-out motor, burned-out contacts, or cogwheels (they become deformed because of burned-out contacts). Often the timer fails together with the defrost sensor and fuse.
Fan breakage in models with No Frost system
In refrigerators with the No Frost system, the fan is necessary to circulate cold air. The cold streams from the evaporator in the freezer are sent to the fridge compartment via special channels. In the vast majority of cases, the fan fails due to a malfunction of the defrost system. Ice blocks the rotation of the fan, as a result, its blades break or the motor burns out.
If your Samsung has stopped cooling or is not working properly, don’t expect the problem to go away on its own. Using a faulty appliance causes other parts to experience increased stress and may also fail. At the first sign of trouble, call or book now.
