You have a defrost problem. You need to determine which one of the parts is faulty. The defrost timer on that model should be behind the kick plate in the center front underneath. If you turn the little knob by hand you will hear a load click when it gets to the defrost point and the unit should shut off. Check in the bottom of the freezer to listen for water sizzleing or for water running down. If it is the timer is not advancing and needs replaced. If not you will have to take the back off the inside of the freezer to see if it is the heater or the defrost thermostat. Unhook power before taking panel off or replacing any parts.

I had the same problem and when we looked at the back the fan was running very slowly. We replaced the fan and that wasn't it. Then we replaced the board, bought it online for 80 bucks and sure enough that was it. Whirlpool was willing to pay for half of the part if I had once of there technicians come out. I think they know the boards are going on these. Mine is a year and half old. I have read several other sites with people having problems with the board. If the side is very hot, like ours was than this may be it. We just ran a portable fan to the condenser until we got the board in..hope this helps

Hi just wondering if you figured out the problem with your Samsung fridge yet.
It is definately a problem with the defrost part of the fridge. After approximately 4 to 10 hours dependent on many different factors it enters into defrost mode to get rid of any excess ice in both the fridge and the freezer. During the defrost stage the compressor will not run. If any fault occurs during the defrost stage the fridge will not restart unless you turn it off and back on again which restes the pcb and takes it out of defrost mode and the timer starts again.
Please let me know how you went with it.
