Description of objects for repairing

Object: Samsung refrigerator, model RF263BEAESR/AA. Customer claim: refrigerator won’t turn on. Issue: the main circuit board and thermostat have failed. Equipment that was used during repair work: a tool for disassembling household appliances, a new motherboard and thermostat, technical documentation from Samsung refrigerators for this type of device.
Samsung refrigerators are very common in America. They are quite popular and reliable, however, like any other equipment, they sometimes fail. Samsung RF263BEAESR/AA stopped working. They turned to us for help to help solve this problem. The biggest problem was that it was necessary to accurately diagnose the device. This is a very difficult job for refrigerators of this model range. However, our technician did an excellent job with this task. He quickly disassembled the refrigerator, tested the electrical circuit and main components and determined the cause of the malfunction. As a result, it turned out that there was not one reason for the refrigerator malfunction, but two: a faulty motherboard and a non-working thermostat. We ordered components and replaced them in the device. More details about our services: refrigerator repair chicago.

Repairing procedure

Step 1: Safety Precautions
  • Before starting, ensure the refrigerator is unplugged from the power outlet to avoid any electrical hazards.
  • Make sure the refrigerator is empty, or at least remove items from the area you’ll be working in.
Step 2: Gather Necessary Tools
  • You’ll typically need a screwdriver set (both Phillips-head and flat-head), work gloves, and possibly a flashlight for better visibility.
Step 3: Accessing the Main PCB and Thermostat
  • Locate the main PCB and thermostat in your refrigerator. The main PCB is usually found at the back of the refrigerator, while the thermostat may be located inside the refrigerator compartment, typically near the top or back.
Step 4: Remove Access Panels
  • Depending on the model and design, you may need to remove access panels to gain access to the main PCB and thermostat. Use the appropriate screwdriver to carefully remove these panels.
Step 5: Disconnect Power and Grounding
  • Before proceeding, ensure the refrigerator is completely disconnected from the power source. This may involve unplugging it from the wall outlet and, if applicable, turning off the circuit breaker.
  • If there are grounding wires connected to the main PCB or thermostat, carefully disconnect them.
Step 6: Remove Old Main PCB
  • Locate the main PCB and identify the mounting screws or clips holding it in place.
  • Use the appropriate screwdriver to carefully remove these screws or release the clips.
  • Once the mounting hardware is removed, gently pull out the old main PCB from its position.
Step 7: Disconnect Wiring
  • Carefully disconnect any wiring harnesses or connectors attached to the main PCB. These connectors are usually color-coded or labeled for easier identification.
  • Take note of the connections or take a picture for reference during reassembly.
Step 8: Install New Main PCB
  • Align the new main PCB in the same position as the old one.
  • Reconnect the wiring harnesses and connectors to the appropriate terminals, ensuring a secure connection.
  • Secure the new main PCB in place using the mounting screws or clips removed earlier.
Step 9: Replace Thermostat (if necessary)
  • If you’re also replacing the thermostat, carefully disconnect any wiring connected to it.
  • Remove the old thermostat from its mounting location, typically by loosening mounting screws or clips.
  • Install the new thermostat in the same position as the old one and reconnect the wiring.
Step 10: Reassemble and Test
  • Put back any access panels that were removed earlier.
  • Double-check all connections and ensure everything is securely in place.
  • Restore power to the refrigerator by plugging it back in or turning on the circuit breaker.
  • Test the refrigerator to ensure both the main PCB and thermostat are functioning correctly.
Step 11: Final Checks
  • Monitor the refrigerator for a while to ensure it’s cooling properly and there are no unusual sounds or behaviors.
  • Dispose of the old main PCB and thermostat properly.
By following these steps carefully, you should be able to safely replace the main PCB and thermostat in your Samsung RF263BEAESR/AA refrigerator. If you encounter any difficulties or uncertainties during the process, it’s advisable to consult the refrigerator’s manual or seek assistance from a professional technician.
