Have a read at this & then phone samsung on the freephone number noted at the bottom of the article -
We managed to fix this problem by removing the back panel on the inside of the fridge & removing the ice from the element. It's a design fault that samsung will fix by replacing a part free of charge. They will also increase your warranty to 5 years when you call them. I found them really helpful.

I turned fridge off and cleaned out. It came back on all good it makes a loud noise - like noise coming from the motor or the back of the fridge. When the fridge door opens the noise stops. Nothing

The information you've provided is not worth more than small advice -- from your problem description, I assume you have a Samsung french door model or a side by side, (probably a french door) These fans only run with the door shut on the fresh food section against the back wall of the fresh food compartment.. The unit is having an icing issue on the fresh food evaporator starting to stop the fan from spinning and you very likely to stop losing your cooling soon. You could have a defrost issue, the door could have been left open too long, or you have a bad door gasket letting air into the unit, if you can message me or give me more info on this problem I will be able to assist you better instead of wasting my time going into big details about this problem without at least a model number. Thanks

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.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running

Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.
