HI XXXXX RS21DCNS is not cooling fridge and not freezing.
Display is working showing 21 and 20. Every 5 to 10 mins i can hear a clicking niose coming from the compressor/condenser? (black gas bottle shape) and the evaperator fan is running but it just doesnt seem to click in can you help?
Hi my name isXXXXX have been an appliance servicer since 1992.
Let me pull the manual up, be right back.
If the fan is working and the compressor is clicking every 5 to 10 minutes, then the compressor is at fault. The compressor has locked up. Part can be found here:,111066:67610,111070

This repair would have to have a technician or engineer to replace the part due to the gas in the system. You would need to call an authorized servicer for Samsung.
Sorry for the bad news on this.
