I just called Samsung and they are sending a repair man, free, even though mine was built in 2006. They were keen to stress this was a one-off and there would be no further support afterwards, but still. Well done Samsung!
BTW - From the UK the new number to call is 0330 7267864

You might need to open the fridge and remove the frosting from the cooling coil, but you shouldn't do it without reading the user manual first to make sure you don't do something wrong:

When mine does this, the cooling coil in the fridge is clogged with ice. There is a motor next to the coil which gets iced up and makes a noise.

The water dispenser in our GE side by side fridge model gss25wsti made a loud grinding noise and stopped working Has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions


First the water dispenser will not make any grinding noise while dispensing water perhaps a hum. The grinding noise is from the auger motor which dispenses crushed ice ad ice cubes. So please check the intake valve at the rear of the fridge if its working, if not you may have to replace the intake valve. Or if that"s ok please check the control module on the door of the freezer.

Water dispenser and ice maker are not working, water supply to refrigerator is ok.


Check / replace the filter. Many fridges have a filter readily accessible from the fresh food compartment. The filter should be changed at regular intervals for best performance. A filter that is never changed will reduce and eventually stop water flow through it.

Check the temperature of the fresh food compartment near the filter. It may be "flirting" with the 32 degree mark. If it is this low, water has turned to ice - and will stop water from flowing. Bump the temperature up a tad to see if it solves the problem.

Lastly, the water supply solenoid may have failed. You didn't provide the model fridge - so I can't give specific info about it - but many fridges have one or two solenoids at the rear of the fridge for water supply and ice makers. You should hear a clicking sound from the rear of the fridge on many models when dispensing water or when the ice maker cycles on. If one has failed, you may expect to pay about $15 to $50 for a replacement - depending model.

Typical GE Refrigerator Single Solenoid Water Inlet Valve "WR57X10033"

Solenoid valve replacement is pretty straight forward. Usually all the is needed are some simple hand tools and a rag to pick up spilled water. Make sure the water supply is shut off and unplug the fridge before attempting.

If my answer was helpful - please rate it. Thanks & good luck!

Water pressure is at a trickle in door dispenser on fridge. filter is clean and mounted properly.


Check the water reservoir in the rear of the fresh food compartment. It may be frozen. If so, there may be an issue with the "damper control assembly" (located in the upper left side of the fresh food compartment) that allows cold air from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. This cold air works its way down to the reservoir (and perhaps other items) and freezes the water inside the reservoir, which disallows regular flow of water at your external dispenser.

Contact an appliance service company.

My samsung rs21dgrs is making very loud noise


Sounds like your Samsung RS21 has devoloped a known fault.
Your frdige will be cold in the drawers but not cold above this? Also there is ice around the pipe behind the drawers. it is the ice hitting the fan that is the noise and eventually stops the fan which pushes the cold air around the frdige.Samsung have extended their warranty to 5 years to cover for this.
You need to call the Samsung customer care team 0845 7267864 and should be repaired free of charge. - mine was. When you call, you need the full model number and serial number. my serial number was on the outside left hand side of the fridge. The engineer comes out within a day or 2.
