Samsung’s are notorious for bad inverter boards. Is the compressor hot? I usually pull the inverter board out and look on both side for signs of overheating or burnt areas. When you pull it off, look at the area it is up against. It might even looked burnt examine the main board too Unplug the refrigerator before removing the boards The inverter has 300V or more in some places
 
If it was a leak, you would see signs of oil. Look around all the refrigerant lines, confessor coils and evaporator. Ther is a refrigerant line that runs under the condenser coils. This line sits in the water from defrost. I’ve seen it erode and leak. The pannwill have oil in it. If you don’t see any oil, the only thing left is to tap the system to check the pressures. That will determine if there’s a restriction, a leak or if the compressor failed. That three way valve is a pain.pain

with it plugged in, tough the compressor with the tip of a screwdriver. Is it vibrating.? Is it warm, hot or extremely hot?
