Question about Sub-Zero 680 / F
If your freezer is iceing up this is due to a defrost issue that comes from either the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or on some adaptive control board. you can perform continuity tests with a multimeter on the thermostat and the heater using a multimeter and the defrost timer i think in the 680 is found in the same spot as the 550 where the compressor is next to the condensor coil if you dont see a defrost timer then you would have an adaptive control board on 80 percent of the defrost issues are due to a bad defrost thermostat if you have any questions message me back Thanks Rick

unfortunately, there is no service manual for this model of Samsung side by side refrigerator. But I think I can help you out....
Do you notice frost accumulation in the back wall inside the freezer area?
If you do, the freezer evaporator could have frosted up or the defrosting cycle is not functioning in the freezer.
What I can suggest is to defrost the unit manually by unplugging the unit for a whole day. Remove and transfer all the food to prevent spoilage to another unit if you have one.
Then if all ice has thawed up, plug it back and start from scratch.
Observe the unit if it will now cool back normally both fridge and freezer.
Keep me posted.
