That is the water line that goes out to your water dispenser. it is placed there so that the water that would come out is cold. as if it is the water reservoir.

Ice on bottom of freezer floor. Turned off fridge so it could completely thaw. Should I do anything else?

We have the same fridge, we just had the same problem, and followed the instructions found on this website. Probably a clogged drain pipe/tube.
After following these instructions, my husband found a chunk of debris in the tube along with a piece of plastic wire tie that was the probable cause of our issue - here is a copy of what we did last night. (The end of the tube has a little rubbery opening that drips into a pan at the base of the rear of the freezer - the beginning of the tube is behind the grill on the back wall of the freezer, have to put the wire through the grill and into the hole - we put the wire up from the bottom and down from the top to be sure to get the clog)
Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.

Water is not cold

NO SOLUTION, THERE'S JUST NO EXTRA TUBING. Domestic refers with water dispensing feature will have a coil of plastic water tubing tucked away in the refer behind a drawer or at the bottom; it hold s cedent amount of cold water when you dispense it. However, You won't find this additional tubing in a Samsung refer. This fridge is made 'abroad' by folks don't have the same standards as the U.S. The icemaker, for instance, is found to be accepatable by their standards when it makes 72 cubes per day; HAH! We use more than that for dinner. We buy bagged ice and use a Brita pitcher. I will switch back to Whirlpool or Maytag when this thing craps out.

Both diswashing drawer are running with F1 flashing

We found that the unit was floofing because a thin, white plastic tube behind the drawer had broken. I learned that the plastic tube is to preven the electric cables from kinking when the drawer moves in and out. The broken tube was preventing the seal from working properly and water was getting past it to the bottom of the unit where a water sensor detected it, shut the washer down, and displayed an F1 fault. The simple solution was just to snip the tube off so that it could not reach the lip of the drawer and intefere with the seal.

My water from the refrigerator door is coming out warm . The freezer and main frige are normal ... what could be causing this ? A prelude for something going wrong in the near future perhaps ?

Check to see if all the tubing for the water line is coiled inside the refrigerator, often times with moving objects things become lose and tubing gets moved around as well. When my refrigerator did this the tubing was some how laying against the motor and thus causing the water to be warm. The tubing which is incredibly long is usually located behind the fruit/veggie drawers which is also (in my refrigerator) is located right behind those drawers if the tubing is laying against those bulbs this could also be the cause of the warm water.

There is an ice build-up underneath the humidity control drawers and the food in the drawers is freezing. It is a model RB 215 LABB. We have adjusted the temperatures of both the freezer and the fridge,...

The problem isn't the humidity control or temperature control. When the refrigerator automatically defrosts it goes through a cycle of heating and melting the ice build-up then drains this water to a tray at the bottom of the refrigerator (underneath). The drain tube that lets this water flow down to the bottom tray freezes so the ice begins to build inside the refrigerator section.

The solution to this is to defrost the tube so water can flow again. There are heating coils in the freezer section behind the plastic in the back that you must remove and defrost.

This is an inherent problem with a lot of refrigerator/freezers. You should probably have your refrigerator serviced and to check the heating capability of the coils to keep this tube from freezing. Otherwise put this on your monthly schedule of manually defrosting.

Collecting water at bottom of frig inside under drawers.

begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.

Slow leak in refrig. coolant tubes.

If that doesn't work go to an appliance repair parts store or HD buy about 10 ft of plastic tubing coil up and use it to replace the tank. Alot of the newer models use this instead of a tank.
