Question about Samsung RS2530BWP (25 cu ft) Side by Side Refrigerator
Verify that the compressor fan is working. The fan is located behind the unit at the bottom. You need to remove tha back panel and observe that the fan is working while the compressor is running.

SOURCE: Bottom freezer
There is an small bar or arm that hangs down into the hopper where the ice collects. Sometimes the manufacturer will tape this bar down and it is not free to move. Or see if the arm is bent. Also I had a new side by side last year, did the same thing. They sent some kid out and he told me it is a design flaw. Did not have a clue. I called GE and they sent out a repair man who knew what the problem was. It was a new bailing arm that had to be installed in place of the old one. If the arm is swinging freely, call the warranty company. Maybe yours needs to be modified as well? Good Luck

Yes this is a sign of a burn out or start relay or start capacitor defect you made the correct choice. If you need assistance let me know, Sea Breeze

The defrost drain hole in the bottom of the freezer has frozen over. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins. Remove the rear panel of the freezer. You will see ice on the bottom rear of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice,especially in the drain hole once you get through the surface ice. Once the drain hole is clear,pour a cup of hot water through the drain hole followed by 1/4 cup bleach. Re-install your parts and turn the fridge back on.

is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.
