Time to call a service tech before you end up paying as much for parts as you would a new refer.

You most likely have a problem in the freezing/cooling circuit. Check your condenser, evaporator fans to see if they are running okay. Most likely it may be the condenser fan.

modern fridges do not like power surges as it burns the electronics
call in a technician to check it out and put a surge protection in the power supply cord

Door wasnt closed properly over the weekend fridge starting to cool, no ice, freezer works display reads Er-1F

The door being open probably caused ice to build up on the evaporator, not allowing air to flow properly between freezer compartment and refrigerator, unplug the unit for a few hours and place a fan aimed at the freezer compartment to help it defrost then plug unit back in should be fine.

For Samsung Refrigerator SR-L629EV my freezer

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Refrigerator compartment not cooling

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.
