Question about Samsung Refrigerators
It sound like your system is low on refrigerant. After you make sure the condenser is clean, and if you have a fan on the condensor that is is operating, check the temperature of the smallest refrigerant line coming out of the compressor about 5 or more inches from the compressor. This is the high pressure line and during normal operation should be around 140 degrees when fully charged. It is my experience about 5 percent of the mass produced refrigerators coming into this country is not charged properly and can cause the symptoms you describe. About 1 percent develop leaks and lose refrigerant. If your line is warm to the touch or barely warm to the touch, you will need to have your system leak checked and recharged by a competent refrigeration tech.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: evaporator coil iceing
if you can put the frig. in defrost this will tell the sensor to turn on and you will see the heater melting the ice,if you can't put it in defrost and the sensor still has ice on it,simply put it in your hand,as your hand warms up you should feel the sensor pop,this pop tells the heater to turn off,if no pop the sensor is bad,if no ice on the sensor put it in a glass of ice,chill it down and do the same hand test,you can also use an omhs meter to check it,all the sensor does is open and close,let me know what you find-mike

If the fan is no coming on inside the freezer this will need to be fixed soon. Both fans upper and lower must run while compressor runs. Inside the fresh food compartment close the damper on bottom left side next to the paned drawer. If this does not help send more cold air to the top let me know as there could be something else causing the dampers not to open and close properly.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

First, when the refrigerator is running, open the freezer door and hold in the light switch so the freezer light goes out. You should be able to hear the freezer (evaporator) fan running. If it is running, then you most likely have a problem with the air damper. It is a motorized door in the very upper left side, back corner, of the fresh foods section. The door needs to be open for air to flow into the refrigerator section. If you place your hand near the vent holes at the upper refrigerator section and the freezer fan is running, FF section warm, you should feel cold air entering. If not, the damper door may have broken. It is not real easy to get at to replace, but that is where your problem may be. Be sure to check the freezer fan first, as a non-working icemaker may point in that direction.
