The trouble shooting guide tells me my fridge is under the state of deepfreeze, that is to say the foodstuff in the refrigerator is frozen. What does this mean and is it repairable.

the freezer should be arond -20 degrees celcius and the fridge aroud 5 degrees celcius
There could be a problem with air flow
the fan in the freezer has probably stopped or the air flow into the fridge is probably blocked
You could have a defrost problem. this would allow ice to build up in the freezer blocking off ai flow.
A technician can help you with that
We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.
Inside the fridge compartment, at the back, is a panel that can be removed, remove the screws careful with the bulb, its plugged in behind the panel.
the panel has a vent that allows cold air flow from the freezer, this will often freeze completely shut with ice. let it thaw out, then check to see that the vent opens, or closes when you turn the dial, the best thing is to open it as wide as possible, I even used toothpicks to open the valve even more, its just a thin flap, surrounded by Styrofoam.
afterwards if your fridge is too cold, adjust the real thermostat located in the freezer.
You said, You noticed there was condensation in my fridge and a strange smell
coming from it, also my freezer was cold but didn't seem to be cold
enough, I have a digital display and it was still showing -22 for
freezer and 3 for fridge. I turned the power off on the wall and when i
turned it back on which was straight away it shown -3 for freezer and
16 for fridge... I then noticed the ice cream in freezer very watery,
however ice in freezer still frozen? i pressed the quick freeze button
which eventually the temperature came back up but i keep getting the
exact same problem... Can you help. thank you. Samsung side by side refrigerator SR-S2025CVW
How old is the fridge?
You did all the right things!!
But this sounds like a bad thermostat. or a bad control switch.
Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here! Let me know how you do! Or if you need something else. We do have very good sponsors here on this site that do repair work, should you take this course!
