There are different reasons why a Samsung refrigerator starts beeping. In this article, we examine these reasons and how to fix them.
Samsung Fridge Beeping When Closed – What to Do
If you find that your Samsung fridge is beeping even with the door closed, do the following:
1. Check Balance
The fridge must be set on level ground and be balanced before it can function properly. If it is even slightly tilted out of place, it starts beeping. So if you are not sure of the balance, relocate it to a better place or call a repair agent to level it for you.
2. Check Content
Ensure the fridge does not have too many items stuffed inside it. This can keep the door of the fridge from closing fully and if the door is even a little open, the beep of the alarm will start sounding.
3. Check Door Seal
Clean the seal on the door of the fridge with a mild soap mixed in warm water. A dirty seal keeps the door of the fridge from closing fully.
To check if the seal is damaged or worn, close the door on a dollar bill. If you can pull the bill out without opening the door, replace the seal. This is to enable the door to close properly.
4. Check Door Alarm
Sometimes, the built-in door alarm of the fridge trips and starts beeping uncontrollably. To verify if this is the case, you need to contact a qualified repair agent. And if the alarm has tripped, replace it. But while you wait for this, it is best to transfer food from this fridge to another in order to preserve it.
5. Check Freezer
It is possible that there is an excessive buildup of ice inside the freezer section of the fridge, causing the beeping of the alarm. This is especially true if the fridge does not defrost automatically.
Unplug the fridge and allow it to defrost manually. Do this after transferring the contents of the fridge to another fridge to preserve them. If the buildup of ice is the cause of the alarm beeping, it will go off once all the ice in the freezer melts.
6. Check Spacing
Check to see if there is proper ventilation around the walls of the fridge. Move the fridge away from the walls around it if it is too close to them. This is to ensure that there is adequate ventilation.
If the fridge walls feel hot to the touch, it tells you the ventilation is probably poor. But if you create the needed space and the walls of the fridge remain hot, have the fridge checked by a professional refrigerator technician.
7. Check Circuit Board
A malfunctioning circuit board can cause the fridge to beep even when the door is closed. To determine this, contact a refrigerator technician to check it and fix it if need be.
Note: Unplugging the fridge and plugging it back in resets it and stops the beeping sometimes. So try this first before checking the parts mentioned above.

Samsung Refrigerator Beeping after Power Cut – Quick Fix
If a Samsung refrigerator is beeping after a power cut or outage, check the temperature inside it. It means it is too high and the unit is alerting you to this so you can correct it. Adjust the temperature setting or give the unit time to cool considerably if the setting is at the correct point.
However, if the beeping continues even after adjusting the temperature, it means there is something wrong with the fridge. Contact Samsung Support center to request service or chat with our refrigerator technicians to get assistance.
How to Stop a Samsung Refrigerator from Beeping
Deactivate the alarm of the fridge if it continues beeping by locating the electronic display and pressing the Alarm key for about 3 seconds before releasing it. Doing this means the door of the fridge can remain open without the beeping sound.
Whenever you wish to turn the alarm back on, press the Alarm key and hold it for about 3 seconds.
But if the beeping sound does not go off, even after turning the alarm off or fixing the seal and checking the balance, unplug the fridge.
After a minute, plug it back in and if there is a reset button, press it. However, doing this could mean reprogramming some functions on the panel.
If the beeping continues after all of this, contact Samsung to report the issue and request service. Alternatively, chat with our experienced refrigerator technicians to help fix the issue.
