It's more likely that the automatic defrost system is defective, or the heating wire for the defrost drain. It's also possible that the temperature controls are set too low. Try zero degrees for the freezer and 38 degrees for the refrigerator side. If that works without problems you might put the freezer at minus two degrees and leave the refrigerator at 38.
Another possible fix is to put a longer heating wire in the drain.

The manufacturer does have date codes built-in to the boards, but there is no information on how to decifer it. The problem is that old boards do have to be returned for dud charges. Sorry, but I'm sure this is not what you wanted to hear. Any other reason you wanted to check?

HI, The picture I find with your model # show a rear panel in the freezer side that will need to be removed. Once it is removed, you will be able to see the drain pan and drain hole. Make sure the once you remove the ice, flush the drain hole with hot water. I use a basting serenge. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

The most common reason for this issue is ice accumulation behind the interior plastic liner which is keeping the air from flowing properly. There are a few ways to fix it, but the easiest is to unplug the appliance, open the doors, and let it thoroughly thaw. This could take a few days. You can also take off the interior panels to get at the ice if you want to hurry the process along, but you can also just wait.

Sop up the water, and when it appears to be done thawing, plug it back in. It'll be just fine.

Sounds like the interior fan may need to be lubricated or even replaced .

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
