20 Most Recent Samsung RFG237AAWP Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator Questions & Answers


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Water filters are usually in the top at the back of the food compartment , it may be behind a box or panel. Check your owners manual. The Owner usually has to change these filters every 6 months or so.

39E is a bad ice maker as you know. Try to heat up the ice maker with a hair dryer in case ice has jammed the ice maker from rotating properly. If it still doesn't work, the entire ice maker would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. '

So error 40E means your ice maker fan isn't running properly and 24E means your freezer isn't defrosting properly. Both items are inside the freezer behind the back wall. You'll need to pull everything out of the freezer and remove the entire back wall inside the freezer. Thaw any ice or frost built up you see with a hairdryer. Re-install everything and then on the dispenser press and hold the upper right and upper left buttons to reset the error codes. If everything resets, then great. If it won't reset, then you need to replace your defrost temperature sensor clipped onto the top of the silver coils behind the back panel you removed, and you also need to replace the ice fan motor.

Unfortunately my experiences, plural, have all been negative when it comes to dealing with Samsung on the subject of their refrigerators. I own one myself and have been trying to deal with Samsung for almost three years with virtually no success. Their units are unnecessarily complex and I would definitely recommend NOT trying to dismantle your unit yourself. Samsung will use any excuse they can think of to blame your problem on YOU and for the most part will NOT support their retail customers. The internet contains complaints about Samsung that number over 25,000. 'Nuff said

Is ice maker in crushed ice mode as this will make grinding sound.

Samsung... | Answered on Oct 03, 2019


The alarm operates from the door switch which also turns light on. When refrigerator door is open for a set period the alarm sounds, fault is possibly either door switch or alarm panel. Can you operate door switch manually while door is open to see if light goes out? If light stays on then you have a faulty switch.

You have ice buildup in your coils in the freezer. There is ice in the defroster element and the circulating fan - the fan being unable to turn is what's causing the error code.
You'll need to unplug the unit, open all the doors and allow the frozen coils to thaw.
