Hiya,
I think your model is RS21fcsv

If it is, press and hold the top button either side of the display until the board resets.

The machine should then start up and run again.

Try it, see how it goes and let me know.

Hope this helps
thanks

no this dose not seem to work have tried 4 times for about a minute at at a time all that you here is a relay clicking when you open and shut the doors

Expert:  Techdesk replied 2 years ago.
Hiya,
You don't have to open and shut the doors.

On your display, which segment is lit?
Freezer or fridge?
1st or 2nd digit?
top, middle, bottom, top left, etc?

Thanks

fridge second digit top

Expert:  Techdesk replied 2 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, that's strange that pressing and holding the buttons didn't start the machine up.

The segment lit indicates a faulty sensor on the ice maker or too high a temperature inside the appliance.

You'll need to check the sensor and see if it's actually causing this problem.


When you press and hold the buttons, does the display go off and then come back on?

Has your machine had the safety modification fitted by Samsung?
Small board near the main board that has a fuse fitted?
Have you checked the fuse?

Thanks

yes have just checked 3 glass fuses at mains on p c b board all are fine checked with continuity tester I don't use the ice maker it is not plumbed into the water mains is this a problem

Expert:  Techdesk replied 2 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, the fuse should be on a separate board.

The ice maker sensor is still part of the circuit, whether used or not.

Thanks

managed to get fridge working sat morning after striping everything out I found that the two buttons on the front door panel one on the left was not making with the switch on the l c d board so I adjusted it to make it work now fridge is back working I would to know why did the fridge not come back on after the power had gone off and all so do I have to connect the water to stop me having any more problems in the future thanks

Expert:  Techdesk replied 2 years ago.
Hiya,
Did it come on when you plugged it in this time?
If not and you had to use the reset, it's because it's detecting the error for the ice maker sensor. (if it's the same segment that was lit).
Connecting the water will make no difference, if it's detecting a faulty sensor then the sensor or the wiring is faulty.

If it came on itself, then I'd suspect a stuck/sticky button.

Thanks

I have just switched the fridge off at the plug and waited a minute and switched back on I had to use the reset again to bring it back on so it must be what you say faulty ice sensor I will purchase a new one in the next few days thanks again
