Have looked at the schematics for this cabinet and am unsure as to the location of both defrost thermostats as unclear on drawings. The purpose of the defrost thermostat is to overide the heater and end the defrost cycle, once the temperature on the evaporator is high enough (normally around 0'C). If you have two then one will probably control the heaters going off and the other may well control the fan, for coming back on. I.E. once the defrost has ended the second sensor will tell the fan when the coil is cold enough to come on, this prevents heat being pushed into the main area after a defrost cycle. If you feel competent enough then I would bypass the heater thermostat temporarily and see if the heaters kick in. The other thing to check is that you have a resistance across the two ends of the defrost heater. In my experience the heater is the most likely to fail, the sensor sometimes fail and the timers rarely fail. The age of your cabinet would suggest the heaters. Please do not leave the sensor bypassed as it performs an essential role. Hope this helps.

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.

I think you have a fan problem. Your refrigerator mus have a bad fan or not working fan. I suggest you full out the refrigerator and open back lower cover. Two months ago, I have a problem like your. I fixed by replace a fan. You have to options to fix it.
Option 1. Check your refrigerator's fan with voltage. It think it should be 120VAC. If yes, you can buy a fan from electronics store (it cost about $12.00 to $17.00). they you remove the old fan and its motor out. Install the new fan in. Then you need to drill 4 holes to tie the fan. By doing this, you keep the fan running stable. The fan won't vibrate.
Option 2. You can go online to this website partstore.com and buy an exactly the one you need and replace the old one. It cost about $40.00.
