Turn off the power to the refrigerator/freezer by flipping the appropriate switch in your breaker panel. Alternatively, unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet.
Open the freezer door. Remove any items from the shelf directly under the light shield, then remove the shelf.
Press down on the top, front edge of the light shield until the locking tabs slip out of the slots. Swivel the light shield downward slightly to release it. Pull the shield out of the freezer compartment and set it aside.
Turn the light bulb counterclockwise to remove it. Insert the GE replacement bulb into the light socket and twist it clockwise.
Reattach the light shield by sliding it into place. Gently push the tabs into the original slots.
Insert the shelf into the freezer and reload it with the frozen food removed earlier.
Close the freezer door. Restore power to the refrigerator by flipping on the breaker or plugging it into the wall outlet.
It sounds like it may be a bad freeze sensor. Consider having it services.
The first thing I would recommend is removing the necessary grills and clean the condenser area and be sure the fan is operating. This becomes a problem in clean homes because the dirt slides on the floor and into the condenser coil where as the dirt sticks to a dirty floor.
The Samsung side by sides and french doors have split systems meaning both freezer and ref have evaps. Your water reservoir could be frozen. They have DC heater that is attached to reservoir so it does not freeze, this could be your problem. The other problem that I have run across is the water line in the door can be frozen. If it is the door, you can check by locating where it enters the door, because it will have a quick disconnect. Disconnect water line and grab a cup and place cup under diconnected line coming from cabinet on the door and press or have someone call for water on fountain. Let me know if that helps. Thanks Logan.
First photo shows paddle assembly that can be purchased you need to got to Sears web site to find part # other wise you will have to buy the whole circuit board assembly hundreds more than the paddle assembly. The circuit board and paddle assembly is removed buy removing screw on inside of door and pulling it out be careful it seems strange but it just pops out. The paddle assembly slides on to the circuit board assembly look close and take your time to slide it off I thought I was going to break mine but did not and save me big money.
Second photo shows tab for water dispensing still there.
Third photo show ice dispensing tab broken and missing.
If you leave the assembly plugged in press the micro switch for the ice dispenser and see if it works most likely the tab has broken and is what hits the switch telling the door to open and ice dispensing screw to push ice to the door. Hope this helps
Your refrigerator is in "Cooling Off" mode, or sometimes called "Store Display Mode", which basically allows everything in the fridge to function except for the Cooling system. Press and hold down the "Lighting" and "Freezer" buttons for 5 seconds until you hear the "Ding Ding". Your 'fridge will be working again.
Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong.

It sounds like the motor to the circulating fan is wearing out . This fan is hard to diagnose as it will spin the blade , but as you said it will not spin fast enough to circulate air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The motor is DC non brush type. It will cost a minimum of $300.00 to repair/replace this fan assembly, but it is worth that compared to replacing the refrigerator
First off its the repair mans problem not an electrican, he probably knows its a hard job and does not want to do it, probably be alot of work to replace it, check with Victory an see it a replacement part is available an ask how hard to replace.
