Had exactly the same problem. Found the cooling coils are not defrosting, everything was iced up inside the back panels. The drain was blocked, water pooling underneath also.
Remove all the plastic panels in the back of the freezer, including the temp. sensor (unplug) and fan (unplug). Defrost everything with a hair drier.
Make sure that the drain at the bottom is free, a small plastic tube which takes water down into a pan where it is evaporated by the compressor etc.
Replace the defrost sensor - the most likely faulty part. This costs about $Au 20.00 from Samsung (just ask for a defrost sensor for the model of fridge). This sensor fits in a plastic cage attached to the top of the cooling coils, has wires which plug into a socket. Reassemble the fridge and see if this has solved the problem.
If the fridge still does not defrost automatically, you may need to replace the circuit board ($Au 80.00 from Samsung). This board is found from the back of the fridge, in a plastic box behind a back panel at the bottom of the back of the fridge. Lots of wires to unplug!
There may be other problems, like a faulty thermostat on the valve which controls circulation of cold air into the fridge from the freezer, I have no experience of solving this.
Samsung mechanics are HOPELESS in my experience, replacing the two parts above will be less expensive than a call to them. Good luck!

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
Press the Power Cool and the Power Freeze buttons for 8 seconds it will enter the diagnostic mode.
Take a look at this link to determine what fault you have under
Step One diagnostics..
There are 13 different faults than can be displayed. Each one of the LEDs in the picture under step one indicate what that fault is by the DIGIT position of the flashing LED. (Legend to the left of picture) Usually that fault is either a component or wiring problem.
The diagnostic test should pinpoint the problem.
Note that the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons are depressed for 8 seconds to clear any faults. It the fault remains it will reappear again.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!
