Question about Samsung Refrigerators
Hi I have a Top Mount Freezer/Fridge and only the top part(freezer) is working but the bottom half(fridge) is not working at all. The model number is DA68-01569A, I was wondering what is the cause and what part do I need? Thank you for your time :

The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working

CHECK TO SEE IF THE EVAPORATOR FAN MOTOR IS RUNNING, ITS IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER SIDE, MOTOR MAY BE BAD OR SOMETHING COULD BE BLOCKING IT...

Depends a bit on whether the compressor really is running, or if it's just humming because it's got power on the run coil, but not on the start coil.
Have a careful listen to the compressor. If it's making the trilling or gurgling sounds that go with a working compressor, then your problem is probably one of lost gas. Fixing this is not a do-it-yourself job.
If the compressor sounds like it's stalled, the problem may lie with the starter. Replacements are usually cheap enough for it to be worth fitting a new one just to see if it works.

If ice is buiding up its usually due to the defrost system not working. There is a timer located at the rear to the right of the compressor which every so often turns on the defrost cycle. To check it , remove the plastic box and with a screwdriver turn the clock around until it clicks. This is then on the defrost cycle. After a short time water should start to drip out onto the top of the compressor. If it does not , the heater may be faulty. If it fails to stop defrosting and move back to freezing , the timer is faulty.
