It might be that your fridge went into something called 'demo mode' that shuts the compressor down so as not to waste electricity on the showroom floor. The freezer and fridge sides both start to warm up, but the temperatures shown on the outside of the door never change, so you don't know you have a problem until you open the fridge or freezer and find you have a melted mess. My Samsung is 7 years old and we run into this problem frequently when our power is on and off, like just recently with hurricane Ike. Per the Samsung website, the cure for 'demo mode' is to unplug the fridge for 1 minute then plug it back in. They also suggested pressing Power Freeze and Freezer Temp together for 8 seconds until you hear a chime to cancel demo mode. Good luck. I really dislike this machine.

Frig not cooling properly, water reservoir freezes


Sounds like your evaporator coil fan (freezer fan) is broke or the thermostatic control valve located on the refridgerator side is broke.
Check the fan by opening the freezer door, and reach all the way to the back of the freezer, if you can feel cold air blowing on your hand and hear a fan blowing it's OK, (but if you can't replace the fan.) If the fan is good replace the thermosatic control valve.

Freezer left open and now won't work


Try to unplug the unit from the wall and let it sit for a few minutes then plug back in. May reset the door alarm lock out. Also, moisture in the air can be drawn in and freeze up the whole thing. That means turning it off with doors open for about 36 hours... Moisture is a killer in a freezer, freezes and blocks up every air circulation vent, etc.
