My Samsung French Door, Bottom Freezer Model RFG297AARS was leaking into the refrigerator & pooling under the deli drawer.

Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Why is my Samsung french door/freezer not working

It is very rare to have a freon leak. It is possible but there are there are things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold. Is the compressor running. Are the fans running. Is the freezer or refrigerator coils blocked with ice. Usually freon is the last place i look.

same as the last post...If the refrigerator wont stay on the start relay may be defective. This may have been caused by the leaking door that overloaded the system. The relay is a small box mounted to the side of the compressor and provides power to the compressor start winding for a split second at start-up to help get the compressor get started. If its defective the compressor may run off and on (a lot) or not at all and the refrigerator will not get cold enough. Fairly easy to do and reasonable

LG French door refrigerator bottom freezer not working

Check inside vents are clear and door seal is good. Check air compressor area is clean and well ventilated. Put setting in a low number and turn off / unplug unit, count to 10 and plug in, turn on.
Crossing fingers helps too ;)

Evaporator coil leak

As a refrigeration tech, I see more of them than I should. LG, Samsung, and some Kenmore units have this problem. I have tried some "leak stop" on a couple that the factory denied a free part and the customer couldn't afford to repair with pretty good luck.

Runs alot

Yes, there is the compressor that has a tinny high pitch sound and the condenser fan motor running at the same time.  The compressor is a very highly efficient motor that doesn't require a lot of energy to run but it does run quite long and often to keep the temperatures cold.
