Anytime you put a question out there concerning technical issues, the more information the better. There are always signs that tell you what is going on if you know what to look for.
The first thing I do is listen to hear if the compressor comes on.
Next I check for fan operation inside.
Then I check for ice on the back wall of the freezer side of the fridge. (FYI: almost all but high-end fridges are cooled by the freezer side evaporator only).
if your fan has a good flow of air over it and there is ice on the back wall it will more then likely be the defrost timer or defrost heater (there is also a thermostat in line with the heater that can fault as well). I change both the heater and the timer because they have about the same life span.
If your condenser coil is dirty it will not cool correctly, and can kill the compressor pretty quick.
Anything with a mother board should be checked by a technician unless you have a full understanding of wire diagrams and electrical skills.

Samsung fridge freezer


there is a shaft from freezer to fridge that the cold air travels. make sure that is unblocked. also make sure the fan is working. then see if the freezer coils are iced up (this restricts air flow). if they are, unplug it, empty the fridge and freezer, defrost the coils, dry it out, plug it in and turn it on (not high). once it reaches the temp and the compressor stops, fill the fridge again.

Fidge freezer is not working properly


Get british gas homecare cover for heating and appliances, don't tell 'em the freezer isn't working, then a month later report it as a fault, they'll fix it. Unscrupulous i know but what can ya do? Otherwise get a hotpoint engineer, sign up for their maintenance plan.
