Samsung rsg257aars is cooling to about 48 degrees on the fridge side and the freezer is no cooling at all.  All the fans are running along with the compressor constantly.  The coils in the freezer are not frosted and appear to be not as cool as I think they should be.  The defroster is cool to the touch as well.  The sensors that display the temperature on the LED display are reading the correct temperature.  I am leaning towards the PCB or a leak. 

Any troubleshooting suggestions?   :thanks:

Check your pressure ?  Sounds like a sealed system leak. Out of Freon?

I would consider myself an above average DIYer  :D.  I have been a mechanic or technician on various things all my life.  I say all that to say I called a repairman for $90 diagnostic fee.  I hope he doesn't suck.  The sealed system is under warranty (which needs an authorized repairman).  Secondly I know enough about refrigerant systems to know I need specific tools (which I don't have) for such a small system to diagnose a clog, low Freon level, or bad compressor.  My fingers are crossed. I will report back my experience and what the fix was.
