Firdt, do the rest. Second, turn off the power around 3 hours (so all of the frozen ice will gone) Than turn the power back. Will work. Good luck

Check the air circulation fan in the freezer compartment for proper operation and be sure its not frozen with ice. If its ice build up, check the defrost circuit. If the fan is clear but not running, replace the fan motor.

How do I get my new Samsung RF220 to be cooler in the refrigerator section? The temperature does not go below 52degrees F. It is set at the coldest setting.

Check for deformed rubber boot that runs entirely around edge of fridge door allowing cold air in fridge to leak out. 2nd possibility: Louvers in wall between freezer and fridge may be stuck in mostly closed position. Force them GENTLY to open. That will allow the cold air to pass normally from the freezer to the fridge to give you proper fridge temps. If these two easy cures don't work, here's hoping that Samsung owes you in-warranty service and parts on your "new" unit.

No longer cooling on either the freezer side or the refrigerator

Unplugged fridge for 24 hours, apparently was frozen up - lot of water on the floor afterwards.
Plugged it back in and has worked okay - occasional noises from the fan, but not all the time.
