Question about Refrigerators
After fan not working it has suddenly started working again, If I had not quite closed the door could this be enough to cause everything to defrost
I don't think it would, even with a cabinet freezer.
If the door was left slightly open it is likely the compressor would start as soon as the temperature rose and would probably keep running continuously or almost continuously so some food would defrost but some would remain frozen.
If there hasn't been a power outage or a surge that upset your freezer it is probably pure coincidence that your freezer died...

Yes, leaving the door open a little could cause it to defrost. This would also make the fan run more than usual, and the fan might have run so much that the fan temporarily stopped working. This is probably a built-in safety feature of the fan (much like some paper shredders will overheat and not return to operation until you let it cool down or operation environment turns back to normal). Good luck.

I opened my freezer today and everything was defrosting. The fridge is working fine. I thought maybe did not shut properly so made sure it was closed and 8 hours later it is still not freezing. The fan is working but the air is refrigerator. HELP!!!
1.Try unplugging the fridge for 5 minutes and then restarting it! This may reset the system!
2.If the freezer is so full that the rear vents are blocked then this may happen. Because the fridge and the freezer share the air!
3. If not then the freezer and the fridge have different controls and the freezer control if faulty!
then you need service. ur site has good service companies in your are for our customers!
please give me a good rating before you sign off!

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
