The fan in the fridge could be iced up. Its a case of removing the contents and then the housing units at the rear. Light difuser cover first and then screws and connections. Lower unit nect four screws. two under clip on covers. It may have to be eased out to break the ice seal. Defrost same with a hairdryer and put the lot back. Good luck. P.s. its going to come back and haunt you. paul.

    Chances are the unit is freezing up due to another problem. They are designed to auto-defrost to prevent the ice build up. I'm assuming that his comment means that unless you fix the actual defect that is allowing the ice to build up, simply defrosting the unit will only be temporary. I'm experiencing the SAME issue now with my unit. A repairman recommend replacing the main circuit board as this is the cause of the problem in "80%" of the SAMSUNG models.
