Yeah, this is a bastard child from an unholy coitus between GE and Samsung.  Closest thing I can find for it is the mini-manual: http://appliantology.org/files/file/781-ge-samsung-built-french-door-refrigerator-gfsf6-gfsl6-gfss6-pfsf6-pfss6-mini-manual/

Thanks for the help. It turned out that the unit was cooling fine, but the evaporator drain in the fresh food compartment was frozen and dumping water in the bottom. I cleared the drain and re-leveled the unit (it was leaning forward} and we will see if it happens again.

Leaning forward? wow...Seen them leaned back but never forward...I guess they must have scrambled a lot of eggs in the past.

With regards to proper leveling, I understand older fridges benefit from a slight backwards lean so that the doors will close when opened half way but newer fridges such as LG's and your Samsung require level. Not sure if this is accurate but this is the approach I've used.

 

btw this would be one of the few times I wouldn't hate on  you if you just so happened to not put back the tech sheet! (then posted it here and mailed it back to the customer lol)
