I did samsung warranty for awhile and these fridges have a faulty defrost termination clixon. What happens is when you turn off the fridge it turns it off defrost. If you do get a tech out there are two parts you need to fix it. One is a yellow sensor cable and the other is a defrost termination wire that is black and red. These two parts i use to sell for $70aus when the fridges where out of warrenty.
I actually have one of these fridges now and work so if you have any other problems please let me know

The first thing to do is, give it a FULL DEFROST, the old fashioned way. set it for defrost or unplug it and melt all of the ice out of the air tunnels below and behind the freezer. In the refrigerator section, you will find a hole that you can stick your finger into, normally in the wall next to the freezer. This has the defrost timer in it. Give it a full turn CLOCKWISE to make sure the contacts aren't stuck. When you are sure all the ice is melted and the water has been dried up, power it back up. It will run properly if nothing actually went bad. The next step, if it doesn't work right, is to replace the thermostat.

you will need to use a blow dryer and defrost the back wall.Once that is defrosted then you will need to remove the back panel and defrost the evaporator coil.
There are several things that can go wrong the temp thermostat,defrost thermostat,defrost heater,or control board.you will also need to check the evap fan and make sure it is working.

When the fridge side is getting too cold or icing up, this is because the control of the compressor has gone bad in some way...
There a few different things that could cause the unit to lose control over the temperature of the fridge side.
If your refrigerator has a damper door that opens and closes to allow cold air to move to the fridge side the damper linkage or the damper motor may have broken or gone bad.
The coils in your fridge may have frozen over and now the air does not move at all so then the ice builds up and can freeze parts of the fridge side.
The thermostat has gone bad and so now the compressor runs continually. This will not be noticed readily on the freezer side but will show up quickly on the fridge side.
Many newer model refrigerators use an electronic sensor or thermistor to read the temperature and supply the info for the circuit board and often a digital readout.
So, here is how I would go about troubleshooting this problem.
Check the coils for ice, defrost the coils with a heat gun or hairdryer, then check for the reason why they iced over. Defrost control or defrost timer bad? Evaporator fan bad?
Check the damper door to see if it is stuck in the open position. If it is then check the motor and the linkage.
Check to see if the refrigeration unit will shut down if the thermostat or digital setting is turned up to a higher temperature. If it continues to run then find the cause and fix it. It may be a bad thermostat, sensor, or control board.
Sometimes with a change is weather to a cooler climate this will be enough to also affect the inside temperatures. Make sure that a bit of adjustment in the thermostat or setting of the temperature will not solve your problem very simply.
I hope the above helps.

SOURCE: My Samsung RS2534 side by
It uses a defrost element, built into the evaporator to melt the ice once every 1 - 2 hours. I suspect one of the sensors are failing, or the defrost element is faulty or worse.
You can test the defrost element with a decent multimeter, make sure power is getting to it, in at least 1 to 11/2 hours. If no power ever reaches the element, even when the compressor shuts off, then more likely the problem is the PCB. If power does reach it, but it does not get warm, the defrost emelent needs replacing.
Testing sensors on Samsung models are nearly impossible, so I am not even going to advise it. The resistance readings never make sense.
So in a nutshell: 1) Faulty Defrost Element or 2) Faulty Sensors or 3) Faulty PCB.
