I have Samsung RS261MDBP/XAA.
Not cooling or freezing I unplugged over night. Cleaned out both sides. The display started to scroll when I plugged in. I held freeze button in to get rapid cool to start light came on.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes the compressor is running and fan by the compressor is also running.
I could not feel any airflow inside the freezer of fridge. I took out the fan out of the back of the freezer and checked with a 12v battery and it comes right on.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Medic, Home Appliance Technician replied 3 years ago
Perfect. Did the evaporator have any frost on it?

After it's been running for 30 minutes or so does the evaporator have frost on it?
