Question about Refrigerators
My fridge seems to cicle once then the freezer temp on the front starts flashing and i need to unplug the fridge ,plug it back in and it works for one cicle and starts flashing again
Have you got a manual? The flashing is almost certainly an alarm condition so check the condenser fan is good, the condenser clean and the door seal intact with no air gaps.

Chances are the fuse in the evaporator section is bad and won't go into defrost automatically. Samsung refrigerators are junk! Good luck getting anyone to service this one.

Control board has gone bad....
What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.
To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

I had a similar problem where my evaporator coil was freezing into a block of ice, which caused my fridge to warm up due to a lack of air flow. I fixed this by doing a few things. I replaced the circuit board ($100) which was easy to do. Unfortunately, this didn't fix my problem so I took the inner fridge cover off to view the evaporator/heater coil assembly. I checked my thermo fuse and found it to be open (failed). I ordered the thermo fuse and the thermistor and replaced them both. I then plugged the fridge back up and put a regular thermometer inside the fridge to get an accurate reading of inside temp. A few days now and everything looks good. The board, fuse, and thermistor were all pretty easy to replace.
