Re: samsung refrigerator drinking water
Yes it is . make sure that there's goofd airflow in the refrigerator compartment. also put a thermometer inside of the refrfigerator and chech to see what the average temperature is inside of the frig. you may be able to turn the temos up.

I had a similar problem with my Samsung fridge, my problem was the the ice holding unit had been taken out and not reinstalled correctly,
There is a rod on the rear of the tub and it has to be placed properly in the drive gear at the rear of the ice making housing so that it fits properly and smoothly.
If you still have a good water supply available at the door then the problem is probably what I just described, Good luck
This could be a frozen water line that feeds the ice maker. Turn the temperature down on both the freezer and the refridgerator and wait at least 48 hours for the temps to adjust and thaw the line. If you are in a hurry you could turn off the unit and remove all food and then use a hair dryer on the water line to thaw it out. Good luck!
Assuming everything is hooked up, and the water valve is in the on position, you might just try replacing the water filter. It filters the water that is used for the ice as well as the drinking water. If the filter is clogged you will get no ice and the flow of drinking water will be greatly reduced.
The water that goes to the door actually is routed through the hinge on the freezer door. Take a look and see if you can't find where the tube comes out and goes into the water dispenser. I bet it has come loose and is rerouting the water down the side of the fridge and onto the floor; hence the puddle.
Also, just because you don't drink the water doesn't mean you don't drink the water! If you use ice from the ice dispenser then you ARE drinking the water. The water that feeds the ice trays comes through the filter, so you might consider changing it every 6 months rather you use the water dispenser or not.
Hope this helps, I have one too and its causing a different set of problems...
The pressure from a reverse osmosis system is not sufficient to operate the ice maker water valve. A water valve requires a minimum of 20 pounds of pressure without a refrigerator water filter, and 35 pounds of pounds of pressure with a refrigerator water filter. Manufactures do dot recommend installing an R/O system on the water supply to a refrigerator. The pressure may have been higher from your old system.
There is no pump per say.. the water pressure is all that fills the ice maker and provides water to the drinking dispensor. The solenoids are also different, one activates for ice maker and the other for drinking water. The fastest way to check water flow is to swap the wires on the solenoids so the drinking water "power" will now power the ice fill solenoid. Once the plugs are swapped and you press the drinking water lever the ice maker should pour water out the fill tube. If that works then you know the solenoid, tube, etc. are all fine. I'd suspect then that the ice maker fill solenoid isn't getting power when it is suppose to fill. Let me know what this test result is.
