Samsung RS21DCSV Side By Side Refrigerator

I cannot find the make of Samsung that I have but it looks very close to this one. My problem is that I can dispense water but the ice tray is not filling. When I hit the test button the ice tray rotates but again it does not fill with water. Has anyone had this problem before and do you know how to fix it please.

    Really simple fix, it is a frozen water valve. You need to get yourself a big syringe and hot water. Remove the rubber flex pipe where the water comes out and get as much boiling hot water as you can in the exposed pipe, don't worry it will come straight back out. After you have put a couple of syringes down press the reset button. I cycled through this about 5 times. Now all is well

Don't buy another Samsung reffigerator. I won't. I and I will always tell everyone I know the same.

I paid over 1200.000 for my refrigerator in Nov 2006. It has never worked correctly. They have replaced everything on the back three times and it is still not working correctly. Since then the refrigator part is not cooling. Today is Sept 10 2008 and I am going to purchase a new refrigerator. It will never be Samsung again.

I had the same problem - the twin valve at the back which lets the water into the ice tray (and also the water dispenser) was faulty - only the ice tray valve, not the dispenser one. So the dispenser worked but the ice did not. repairman replaced it and has worked fine since.

The valve is at the back, to your right as you face the rear. You'll need to take the plate off and the vlve is the unit, about 3 inches by 2 inches and has one water inlet and two outlets. It was quite easy to replace (if only I had known, could've save 200 quid) - I think currys partmaster sell the part.

Hope this helps

Sometimes there is an air lock in the water tubing. Do you think pushing the water paddle for a considerable period of time will resolve the airlock and your ice tray might start filling up?

I have a Samsung side by side refrigerator Model No: RS21DCSV. The water and ice dispenser are working. However, the water is no longer chilled?

Water is stored in a tube bundle located behind the crisper drawers (bottom, back of the refrigerator) and is chilled to the temp of the refrigerator (perhaps 40 degrees F). This tubing holds approx. 16-32 ounces (less than a liter) and incoming water pushes the chilled water to the dispenser, but also begins to warm the output water temps.

The only way to get colder water is the set the refrigerator to a lower temperature. But be careful that the temps are not so low as to cause other food items to freeze.

Samsung side-by-side fridge freezer model RS21DCSV. Freezer is fine. Temperature keeps changing in fridge varying from 5-14 degrees and water has stopped coming out of dispenser. Have checked and...

these side by sides use an auger motor in the fridge to open and close according to the temp demand. If its eratic, either the auger is icing up at the outlet possibly due to product being to close to the outlet. On occation i have had to replace them due to being faulty.(to check, adjust the temp. and notice if there is any change on the auger.)

Icemaker tuns but ice does not drop out

OK the reason the Ice isn't dropping is that the element under the icecube tray isn't working. You'll need a new Ice tray with element I'd be guessing, but see how you can buy it. Some models you need a whole new ice maker. Cheers

Water dipenser

The instruction book suggests this could be because the freezer temperature is set too low. Mine is set at -20C. It says the water line can freeze stopping water flow. Try reducing the temperature.
