From your information Bill it seems the defrost system has failed. There are several componants that could cause this. First check the defrost heater which is located on the evaporator. You will need to pull the plug and let the ice melt completely first. Store your perishables elsewhere.
With an ohmmeter, check for continuity across the defrost heater. With all due respect, if this is confusing you need to call a service tech. If you have continuity across the heater, check the defrost thermostat which is a round disc fastened to the evaporator.
Finally, look for the defrost relay. It should be found somewhere on the lower rear of the refrigerator. Check for power to the relay, and on the outlet side. A wiring diagram located on the back of the unit will help you find the correct wires. All of these parts should be available from your local refrigerator parts supply, or check with Samsung online to order. Be advised Bill that this is not a simple repair, but if you have some electrical understanding, you can do it.

check out the refrierator defrost sensor for the refrigerator side. the connection may not be making a good contact. open up the refrigerator evap section and behind the lights for the crisper is the connections. be carefull because the evap may be frozen up and the styrofoam wil break if its frozen up. thaw it out first with a shop vac blowing air out.

if the coil keeps freezing over it could be a few things, if the fan is working, it could be a problem with the defrost cycle, defrost bi metal, defrost timer, or defrost heater would need checked to determin which componet is bad.
