Answer Hello Be. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the evaporator coils in the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Samsung refrigerator new 2010 side by side. The unit worked for three years then started to make noise from the rear fan. Later it stopped freezing all at once. No cooling from refrigerator side or defrost. Compressor works evaporator coil cool at bottom of element. Never gets cool or makes ice.
You will want to check to see if the evaporator coil is building a light frost pattern on it or if it is a solid block of ice. If a solid block then the defrost circuit is faulty and you will need to check the defrost sensor and the defrost heater. If these check ok then the control board is faulty and would need to be replaced. If there is no frost on the coils then there is the potential for there to be either a restriction or leak in the sealed system.
