I would take a look to make sure your coils are not frozen or covered with ice on the inside of the fridge on the back wall and also double check the drain line on the back.

You could have a faulty switch that controls the thermostat as well.

Either the water supply is blocked or frozen, the water pumping mechanism is shot or the electrical component which dumps the ice is bad. I'd check the water line first.

Take a look at this link .. should be a Samsung pdf file.
It at least indicates to clear the two "88"s on either side ... to press simultaneously the "energy savor" and "alarm/lighting" buttons.
Then an error code may come up ... and look at the chart of codes to see what the issue is

Good luck on your troubleshooting

Sounds like either the expansion orifice or the evaporator fan. Take a mechanic's stethoscope and place the probe on the evaporator tube(s). It will be louder on that if it's the orifice. Sometimes they will make a sound if the system has too much refrigerant charge. Either case unless you are a fridge tech suggest have a tech do this one for you.
Occasionally the evaporators get an ice build-up which can cause strange sounds.
Maybe as a last ditch test before you replace the fridge, try defrosting it overnight.

Remove the old bulb and go to the appliance parts store to have them match it to a new one

The hot portion is the defroster. Sounds like the timer isn't working

First tell us the brand and model # of your fridge. We don't know that

I fixed it. ER FF is "Error Freezer Fan." Once the evaporator fan stops turning for more than 115 seconds, this error message will be displayed. This fridge is poorly designed and is not designed with air gaps or enough air gaps to allow air behind the back panel of the freezer where the fans and condenser coils are located thus causing ice to build up around the fan and it's ability to spin. The evaporator fan helps cirulate the cold air generated by the condenser coils.

The fix is (1) defrost your refrigerator which means you'll loose all your food if you don't have another unit to keep the food in until it's done defrosting or (2) to dismantle the entire freezer by removing all the trays and railing so that you can pull the back panel far enough to get the front end of a hair dryer over the top lip of the panel to melt the ice. My unit had ice build at the top right and left corners behind the panel. I opted for the latter and didn't have to throw any food away.

This is going to be an annual chore if I want to keep this refrigerator. We should all ban together and call for a recall.

Most ICE augers rotate counter clockwise. There are a few that don't but they tend to based on EARTH drilling augers which generally rotate Clockwise.
