Hi. There is a valve in the top corner of the frigde that controls the cold Air to flow from the freezer to cool the fridge. This valve called a damper closes when the door is opened. You have to depress the door switch and listen for the fan in the freezer to switch on then feel for cold air to flow into the fridge compartment. The fan could have failed or the damper valve could be stuck closed.
if you are sure the evap fans are running (the ones inside) then only 2 things left.... 1- there is ice build up around the evaporators blocking air flow..... 2- the unit is out of freon.... I really suspect that there is ice around evap, samsung's are not known for having freon leaks.....I would unplug unit for 24-48 hours, then remove ff shelving, then take 2 screws out,(located on the bottom left and right of the evap cover and the one that is behind a plastic plug located in the center about 2/3 of the way to the top of the cover....once you remove the screws, grasp the cover on the bottom right corner and gently pull out to remove cover, being careful not to break the foam that channels air..... once removed check to see where the ice is left.... usually in the top right corner, if so replace the sensor located there...

check the electronically operated damper vent door located behind the plastic grille inside the refrige compartment in the upper left hand corner,its either a dead control,an evaporator control12 volt d.c. motor,or the motor/door shaft is broken and you need a repl
lg ice beam refrigerator which has door cooling also is not cooling properly. the freezer is working there was ice accumulated in the rear corner of the freezer i defrosted but still the fridge is not cooling and there is a pool of water at the bottom most of the time. sometimes i see the fan inside the fridge is not working
Good day, If it is a conventional refrigerator, there should be a cooling plate on the top back of the wall in the food section. Assuming the door fits and closes properly, and the light goes out when the door closes, the plate described above should have a frost pattern on it. That is what cools the bottom fresh food section. If left on for plus 12 hours normal cooling should exist. If the plate is not frosted, and the machine runs constantly, you have a freon leak with no real practical repair possible. You could recharge it, but it would be pricey, and just repeat the problem shortly.
Make sure the air door in the refrigerator compartment is open at least a little and not blocked by anything. This is located just to the left of the bottom drawers. Also check the air inlet located at the top left rear of the refrigerator for flow. If none is present then you have a frost buildup caused by frequent opening and closing (common to these models) an ice cube dispenser door hanging partly open (Also common). Check this by looking from the inside of your freezer door down the ice chute. A flashlight helps a lot here. Also may be a defrost issue.
many times when a unit has a defrost problem the coils freeze up and do not allow the fresh food side to cool properly...check for a build up of ice on the inside back wall of the freezer compartment. if there is a build up of ice, you have a defrost problem. Also, check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is blowing the air into the fresh food side.
