The problem is in the control board. A diode is shorting the relay, also has burned off trace. Looking for diode to replace as I write this.

I had this problem in the fridge portion last year and replaced the switch at the top of the door. Problem solved. There should be two switches: one for the lights and one to turn off the compressor when the door is open. I don't remember which one was which. Try the link below for the part, but double check to make sure it's the right one. They have an 800 number to call as well. Good luck

I replaced a circuit board that is in the white box at the lower left rear of the fridge. You will need to remove the cardboard cover, then there is two screws to loosen the box. The circuit board is inside. There is a white tab that sticks up push it sideways and it will pop right out. Put the plugs in the new board and pop it back in and put everything back together. Be sure the wires are routed so they do not contact the compressor.
If you want to test it first get a voltmeter one probe to CN1, the white wire, and the other to CN2, yellow wire with red stripe, there should be 120 volts. If not, or when the door is open it drops replace the board.
I did not have a voltmeter but it seems everybody that had a problem the fridge was 4 to 5 years old. So I bit the bullet, around $90.00, and replaced it and it works!

FAULTY COMPRESSOR OR GAS LEAK. IT CAN ALSO BE YOUR THERMOSTAT. YOU WILL HAVE TO SEND IT TO SAMSUNG OR GET A TECHNITIAN TO SEE TO THE FRIDGE.

If you have an elect. meter, you can tape the door switch closed, remove bulb, and touch your leads, one to the center tab on the socket and the other to the threaded portion of the socket, where the bulb screws in and you should have 120volts. If you are sure you have no power, unplug it and try and gently pull out the switch. This is the only thing between the light and main power below.The switch only connects to one of the 2 wires and a connector may have burned or come loose.If you have power to one side of the switch to ground, and its taped closed, and have no power coming out the other side, then you have a faulty switch.You can get a socket and or switch at your local appliance parts house. Just take the model, serial, name, and product # if there is one and they can match one up for you. I'm betting its the door switch.
