Fridge does not cool below 40 degrees

I recently purchased a Samsung RS2530BBP and the fridge does not cool below 40 degrees even on the coldest setting - our old fridge was colder on lower settings. The freezer works just fine.

    We live in China and bought a Samsung side by side--a big investment for we have a big family.  Shortly after we bought it it made noise, like ice grinding noise; but everything else seemed to be fine.  Then after a little over a year, the temperature of the fridg rose and became unusable.  We have repair people over for a dozen of time--they even took the fridg back to repair for a few times and took weeks before we could get it back each time.  The temperature kept rising and became worthless to keep food.  When we contact the Samsung headquarter, they said they will try to fix it. How many times does it take to fix a broken, flawed designed fridge before it will work?   Warning: DO NOT BUY SAMSUNG.  They care less about what we have to go through, all the spoiled food and headaches.  And for us, it multiples by a dozen times.

Noise coming from the back of my Samsung RS2530bbp refrigerator, fan like noise

if it is a squeeking noise it could be that the bearing on the fan motor is going out, if it is a tapping noise or a fluttering or maybe even a thuding the fan blade is hitting something like papper,mouse,insulation that was taped to the fridge for either sound barrier or temp. control.You will need to pull refrigerator out and use 1/4 or 5/16 nut driver and pull back cover off to determine the cause, be sure to er-install cover for if you do not it will not keep compressor cool there fore temp. in fridg. will not be consistant.

Refrigerator top rack is warm. Temperature shows 65 degrees

if your freezer can make ice and the ice is dry, the problem is simply air flow into the refig section. A very common cause for a service call that wasnt needed for reefers is the settings. One setting OFF 1-10 usually, operates the compressor. The remaining setting will say , for colder freezer or similar, It opens a little flapper door between the freezer and the fridge section. If you set that one to max or coldest freezer it will actually starve out the fridge section for air ,and you get a cold freezer and warmer box! It happens everytime someone has the problem , its too warm! they peg both controls to coldest! The compressor will coll the freezer sufficiently even if set to 1 and the fridge should be cool too if the setting isnt pegged to coldest setting thus closing down fridge air and making the freezer colder which isnt ever required!
