Samsung RSH1NHMH Fridge Freezer not Turning on and Tripping Electrics

Postby sfrazi » Sun Aug 30, 2015 3:05 am

A couple of days ago we left the door open on our samsung rsh1nhmh freezer compartment for around 12 or so hours. When we realised all the freezer food had become soggy.

The freezer(and fridge) were fine after this but we decided it would be a time to turn it off in case it needed defrosting.

After turning off for 24 hours we attempted to turn it back on. Unfortunately it wouldnt turn on and kept tripping the electrics every time we try to turn it on.

I have checked the fuse on the plug and the ones at the top of the fridge.

Does anyone know what the problem could be or what else I could check before calling an electrician?

We don't have any warranty left so any ides would be great.

I would guess tripping the RCD due to having so much water running into the tray on top of the motor. Sponge it out, let it dry and try again.
