Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

these appliances are a pain in the butt. fault with water dispensor is oprob that the water bottle at bottom of fridge is frozen. rise in temp is prob that defrost not taking place. not a diy unless you are experienced

SOURCE: I HAD AN ICE BALL
Some how warm ambient temps are finding their way in there and causing this ice up. I do know that samsung had built a few of the ge models which have evaporator coils in the refrig section. You should shut off the refrig completely and leave the freezer door closed, but open up the refrig door and let it defrost down to room temp. After trying this log how many days it takes to come back and if its in the same area.

Hey how yo doing? on most refriderator there are two important parts to keeping freezer from freezing over, they are the bimetal thermostat and ice pipe heater. The bimetal therostat is a preset thermostat that ranges from 54degrees farenheit to about 60, when the coils (inside the freezer compartment behind the back panel) reach the preset temp. it closes a circuit and send electricity to the ice pipe heater, to warm the freezer coils preventing from freezing over. if any one of those components fail, your freezer will continue to freeze solid until there is no more space for ice to build on coils decreasing air flow from the evaporator fan blowing air into your fridge.To test you will minor knowledge on using a multimeter.(REMEBER TO UNPLUG REFRIDGERATOR BEFORE SERVICING, IF YOU UNCOMFORTABLE WORKING ON APPLIANCE PLEASE CONTACT A PROFFESIONAL REPAIR SERVICE..) If you'd like to continue please respond.
GOOD LUCK, WORK SAFELY..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer
are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of
cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
How to check everything
check , defrost heater, defrost thermostat. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the adaptive defrost control. Part 13 in this diagram.
