alright I'm going to need some assistance as I've never taken on a fridge

fridge is cold and normal
freezer is struggling to freeze

where do I start(off to google I go)


I'm guessing this is a dual compressor unit? Could be one of the condenser fans gone out

All I will contribute is well wishes to you. I tend to think I can figure anything out and fix anything but i spent days trying to fix my refrigerator / freezer buying new parts taking everything apart testing all sorts of stuff with a multimeter back and forth !! Finally pushed it out the door and said the hell with it!!

I should add Samsung is junk and I had already fixed the damn thing 3 times and got tired of also having to defrost the fridge every few months because of a poor design

on second thought - fire and new bike.

at least if you need a new one the Fridge supply chain isnt as badly impacted by COVID as it was when the storm last summer fried my fridge. lucky for me thats one of the few times I filed a homeowners insurance claim and they fuly covered a replacement.

Apparently Facebook marketplace is full of free/cheap fridges, I'm picking one up next weekend for $20. Vacuum the coils first though.

alright can a compressor be bad and the fridge be cold?

freezer still isn't cold enough

reason I ask is because compressor is hot :(

whatever the purpose of that tape it seems to have melted, I could only be so lucky to have a fire

it really isn't an iced up evaporator?

ok, how cold is the cold line? it should be below 0.
that small pipe can get clogged.

do you have quite a bit of water in that bath to the right?

If there's only one compressor then that's not your issue, if it went down neither side would cool. check the freezer coils check the evap fan in the freezer
