Samsung refrigerator two-chamber - the upper chamber does not work
The refrigerator is a difficult high-tech device, which is not so easy to understand. Such a household appliance usually lasts a long time, but sometimes an incomprehensible problem arises: the Samsung refrigerator is two-chamber - the upper chamber does not cool, and the freezer freezes. It seems that the refrigerator is working, but in fact - no. Such a problem is not only unpleasant, but also dangerous. First of all, the refrigerator can finally break down, which threatens considerable financial losses. If products are stored at the wrong temperature, this is a direct health hazard. Let's try to figure out what happened, why the refrigerator is blinking, and can this be fixed.to contents ↑
The operation of the refrigerator and freezer
The refrigerator frost frost stopped cooling. How to avoid a malfunction of the refrigerator? The compressor is the heart of the refrigerator. The general scheme of the device is as follows:
- Thanks to him, pressure is formed. It is with the help of the generated pressure that the refrigerant moves to the condenser, where the gas turns into a liquid.
- The process generates heat, which is felt when you touch the back of the refrigerator.
- Freon, passing through narrow tubes, again turns into gas.
- After freon enters the evaporator, it boils. In the evaporator, cold is formed.
- The tubes are located around the freezer, from where the cold spreads further. That is, if the freezer does not freeze, there will be no cold in the refrigerator.
- Then the refrigerant returns to the compressor and the cycle ends.
Causes of problems
If the freezer is working in the refrigerator and the refrigerator is not, this does not always indicate a serious problem. First you need to check everything:
- The first step is to check how tightly the door closes. Loose closure leads to a violation of the tightness of the chamber, respectively - the cold just goes beyond it. If you understand that this is the problem, read our post about sealing gum of the refrigerator and its repair.
- Cooling problems may occur due to freezing of the fan. This happens if you do not defrost the refrigerator for a long time. The problem is solved simply - the device is disconnected from the network and thawed.
Important! After defrosting, it is necessary to wipe the parts from plastic and metal, since when you turn on the refrigerator, they can icy even more. To prevent such problems less often, learn more about the right fridge care.
- If the apartment has a high temperature, the compressor may not cope with the high load. In this case, the power is enough only for the freezer. This problem is resolved by setting the cooling control from maximum to medium temperature. Our instructions from another article will tell you how to adjust the thermostat. After that, an even distribution of cold in the compartments will begin.
- Foreign matter may clog the capillary tube in the evaporator. Because of this, the circulation of freon is disturbed and the low temperature can not get to the refrigerator. Repair in this case requires immediate, as the most expensive part of the refrigerator, the compressor, may break.
- If water or food debris gets on the temperature sensor in the refrigerator, it may break. It must be changed immediately, otherwise - a large load on the compressor will lead to breakage.
- If copper or aluminum tubes with a defect occur evaporation system freon leak. The compressor to restore pressure in the system starts to work continuously. The result is a breakdown of the compressor and evaporator system.
Important! If the upper chamber does not work in the Samsung two-chamber refrigerator, then the compressor is damaged. In models with two cameras, cold is generated separately for each of them.

What to do in the absence of cold?
As soon as you notice that the upper chamber does not freeze in the refrigerator, you need to determine the nature of the breakdown. This is necessary in order to provide information to the master, and he could understand why the freezer is working in the refrigerator, but not the refrigerator.
So, the order of your actions:
- We clearly define that the upper chamber does not work, and everything is in order with the freezer.
- We check the availability of heating appliances near the refrigerator. Batteries must be insulated.
- All controls are carefully checked.
- Sealing gum on the door is inspected.
- It turns out that on the outer surface of the refrigerator rusty, oily or other smudges, and in the freezer - ice and snow.
- The last stage - the elements and the inner surface are inspected for deformation.
Important! To household appliances crashed less often, it will not be superfluous to choose the right voltage regulator for the refrigerator.

What to do to make the refrigerator last a long time?
You can’t do without a refrigerator. This purchase can not be called cheap, but it will last a very long time, if you follow simple rules:
- You need to place the refrigerator in the places intended by the instruction. If you install it near the window, it is exposed to sunlight, which adversely affects performance and power consumption. When located near the stove, damage to the housing is possible.
Important! Heaters should be located at a distance of at least 50 centimeters.
- Each product has its own place. There is a division of the internal space into zones. There are compartments with a lid on the door - they store butter and cheese. For the eggs are special stands. Narrow sides are designed for milk on the doors, and wine needs to be stored in special compartments. At the bottom there are products for cooking (fresh meat and fish are stored for no more than a day).
Important! Products must be packaged, as the refrigerator absorbs odors.
- The refrigerator must be washed. To do this, use a soft rag or sponge without a hard coating. Cleaning products should be replaced with soapy water. To get rid of the smell, use ordinary soda, activated carbon, lemon. Also in stores special odor absorbers.
Of course, a refrigerator is a necessary thing, and if it is properly looked after, it will serve for years, and spoiled products will not cause allergies or poisoning.
