Question about Samsung Refrigerators
Check the freezer for frost on its back wall. The refrigerator gets the cold air for cooling from the freezer section. If you have frost on the back wall you have a problem in the defrost circuit. There are three parts involved in the defrost of the coil. Heaters, thermostat or defrost thermostat, and timing device. If your model has a mechanical timer you can located it and rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one click. This puts the freezer into the defrost mode. After 30 minutes if the defrost takes place and the refrigeration does not restart, rotate the clutch head screw a little more and it will start. This tells you the timer is the problem. If it does restart by itself and defrost does not take place your problem is in the heater of defrost termination thermostat. The timer is generally located near the controls for the temperature.
