Samsung Refrigerator - Fridge has no power

There are a few ways to tell if your refrigerator has a power issue, such as if the lights suddenly do not turn on or if the interior feels warm. Sometimes you can fix the issue by checking a few things around your home, like the circuit breaker.

The provided information refers to refrigerators sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ for appliances sold in other countries.

See if the circuit breaker has been tripped

Check the circuit breakers to see if any have been tripped. If tripped, reset the breaker.

If the refrigerator keeps tripping the circuit, unplug the refrigerator from the current outlet and plug it into another outlet.

  • If the fridge does not trip the circuit breaker when on a different circuit, service is not required. Contact an electrician for help with the tripping circuit.

  • If the issue continues even on another circuit, visit our Support Centre to request service.
Check the power outlet

Unplug the refrigerator. Connect something else to the same outlet and see if it receives power. If it does not, contact an electrician for help with the outlet, and use a different outlet for the fridge.

Verify that the outlet is grounded and is 120V, 60 Hz. If the outlet does not meet these requirements, contact an electrician.

Check to see if the outlet is GFCI protected. If it's tripped, reset the GFCI plug. If the refrigerator continues to trip the GFCI outlet, use a non-GFCI outlet.

Inspect the power cord

Inspect the power cord for any damage. If it's damaged, do not plug it back in, and visit the Support Centre to request service.

Find support

  • If the fridge works on some outlets but not on all of them, then contact an electrician for help on the outlets it doesn't work on.

  • If the fridge still will not power on, visit our Support Centre to request service.
