Question about Samsung RB2155SH Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have a Samsung RB2055SL The fridge is beeping 10 times intermittently about every two minutes. The upper fridge section is not working properly. The tempature remains now at 66F. The lower freezer section is working fine with a tempature of 8F. I checked the seals of the doors and they in very good shape. The refridgerator always beeped when the door was left open too long. I do not have the manual. All arts of the appliance are internal. I have the same problem....the bottom freezer is fine but th fridge keeps beeping like the door is open and its up to 66 degrees...whats up with that please help someone?
First, the Samsung Refrigerator is the only fridge that has one compressor, but two different evaporators to operate the freezer and the refrigerator separately. Thus, you can have the bottom freezer working fine, while the fridge part will not.
The reason your fridge is not working is probably a faulty door switch in the refrigerator. The switch is malfunctioning, telling the computer that the door is open. Therefore you hear the door alarm go off in intervals, even though the door is actually closed. If the computer registers an open door, it will not pump cool air into the refrigerator, as that would be a waste of energy. All you need to do is replace the door switch. Until you get a new one, you can temporarily fix your fridge by simply removing the old switch altogether. You will not have any light in the fridge, however, it will cool again just fine until you are able to install the new switch (a simple plug-in contraption, by the way).
Hope this helps.

Astralia441, a big THANK YOU from me. This was EXACTLY the quick fix I was looking for. I found the doorswitch panel on the lower right of the fridge door frame and popped it off with a flathead screwdriver. I then unplugged the switch and presto, it worked! No lights, but the temperature started to drop again. You saved me BIG money - no weekend service call to make!!

I asked about the beep beep beep and the fact the upper refridgerator section not working. I even called Samsung. They could offer no ideas. Then, I followed the suggestions offered by several people, remove the door closed push buttons, That was the solution. After 24 hours of beeping every 2 minutes I was going insane. I have my senses back and saved on what would have been a costly service call. Thank you. mikecleaver

I had the same problem with my Samsung RB2155SH refrigerator. I tried a few things (turn on/off, putting tape on the switch, etc.. ) but it kept beeping 10 times every minute ! I removed the switch per your suggestions. Very easy to do with a flat knife. And the temperature of the fridge goes back down to the usual temp. All is well. Thank you !!!

Same problem..... as soon as I popped off the door switch panel and unplugged the door switch I heard the frig fan turn on and the light turned off. Within 5 minutes the temp started to drop.
So thankful for sites like these !
