Unit is only one year old. The model number is RS2530BSH not RS2630BSH but this site would not let me enter the model I have so I picked the model closest that came up.
Its a twin flow unit so I think its one of the fan motors and specifically, the one in the freezer section. But I cant be sure until I can get inside the area.
How do I get inside the compartment I need to get into? I tried to take the middle section out. I took the screws out and tried to gently pull it out but it won't budge. Maybe its frozen or maybe I need to take either or both the above/below panels out as well-- i don't know.
Can someone tell me the part # I need to order? I'm pretty sure its the fan motor but I wanted to get it in my hands to be sure so I can make sure the amps/rpms match whats in the unit.
Here are pics of what I see so if anyone can tutor me on how to take the panels out to get to the motor/fan area, I'd be most appreciated.

If you put in the make and model for your unit, it did not come through to us. If you go to this website link, and scroll to the bottom of the page and enter the requested info, they will tell you the age as close as they can. Several manufacturers recycle their model and serial numbers every 11 to 12 years, so you may have several year dates to choose from. Hope this helps!

this is because the condenser fan is not doing its job open the lower panel in the back of the unit and make sure that the (condenser)fan is working if it does then the coild and very dusty , get a long brush and clean the condenser coils you will see a diff. right away
you indeed do have a bad condenso rfan motor.. its the fan by the compressor behind the unit,,i couldnt find your model number on my part look up, but you can call samsung direct( cust service line) and with the entire model and serial number they will be able to determine the correct part number, you want entire condensor fan assy with housing and fan blade... it will come complte, you will simply unplug and snap in the new unit housing and all.. inn meantime i would pull unit away form wall and with a desk top fan orwindow fan blow it on te compressor to keep it cool you dont want to overheat the compressor. the youll have major problems
It appears your compressor has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

they have bushings in them that sometimes make noise when the motor shaft moves to a certain position. when you open the door it disrupts the airflow of the refrigerator and the motor shaft will go to a different position causing the noise to stop.
You didn't mention it, but I'll bet there's a "humm" followed by a "click" noise coming from the back of the fridge. Even if you don't hear the noise, the starter on the compressor has failed. One of two things cause this... 1.) A mechanically failed starter. 2.) A seized compressor. If it's the starter only, you are in good shape. If it's #2 and the unit is less than 5 years old, it'll be a warranty claim.
If the unit is less than 5 years old... do not attempt the repair yourself. Because, if you do and find the compressor locked up, you have voided your warranty and they will not repair for free.
If it's over 5? Install a starter. We need the FULL model number off of your fridge to provide steps on this. It's located on a data tag affixed to the inner fresh food section lining. Most likely near the top on the right.
Please post back with these numbers if you require further assistance.
