Customer Question

I have a Samsung rfg295AARS and it does not cool at all. I have checked voltage at the inverter board and it is good. The LED is steady red. I have checked the compressor windings and they are good (9.5 ohms each). The compressor starts and runs, but immediately goes to idle speed. When I put it into maual at FF!,2,3 it does not change speed.

Are you getting any frosting on the evaporator coil?

Two possibilities only- you have a freon leak OR the compressor is not pumping (I know it runs). You cannot repair either issue by yourself, but you can see if this has any freon in it by cracking the pinched-off tube on the compressor and see if you have any refrigerant in there just so you know what the extent of the repair will be should you choose to do it. I appreciate a rating for the answer. thanks
