Question about Samsung RF265AA Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
Well here is How I fixed My French Door Ice Maker, It made the same loud crashing sounds, and seldom put out much ice. To the point that it made no ice at all.
First, Make sure you can get water out of the front, if not, your water lines may be clogged.
The second thing you can do is hit the secret RESET button on the upper front side of the ice maker. See my first image for it's location, it is a soft rubber button.
The third thing.. In my case the reset button worked for a little bit. But eventually stopped. I had to remove the ice maker, and found that that several rows of ice had gotten stuck. The swinging arm that smacks the ice out would just strip the gears banging that ice to no avail. So opening the ice maker up and cleaning it out helped. I also cleaned the sensor contact with some alcohol. It is a thin metal strip close to where the gearing housing is. This I believe is ultimately where the problem starts. It allows the trays to get overfilled, and the ice can't be released. Once I cleaned out the tray of stuck ice, cleaned the sensor, plugged it back in, and hit the reset button once more, It was making loads of ice once again. If this fails, you can get a complete new ice maker online, I found a vendor on eBay selling it for a reasonable $80. You can use my pictures to see how to disassemble for repair ore replacement. My fridge by the way is the RF267AARS.
the part number is: DA97-05554A
It works with the following refrigerators
Samsung RF267AABP Samsung RF267AABP/XAA Samsung RF267AARS Samsung RF267AARS/XAA Samsung RF267AASH/XAA Samsung RF267AAWP/XAA

I have the same problem but when I took it apart the ice was filled to a proper level... just won't eject it. Is there some kind of coating on the tray? I ejected the ice by hand and it actually takes quite a bit of force to remove.
By the way, thanks for the pictures and description on how to get it apart.

Ckoonz, I had the same issue. It appears for me the heating element that allows the ice to be pushed out had failed. I new icemaker (<$100 from Samsung) fixed it for me.
