Question about Samsung RS265LABP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice Maker Not Dispensing

The ice maker for my RS265LABP Samsung fridge is not working correctly. It has something to do with either the rotating action of the tray dispenser or a trigger switch, both of which I'm not sure. The ice maker will fill up, freeze, but then it will seem to fill up again causing a large block of ice to develop. If I remove the block of ice it will do it all over again. I was able to tap on it to make some pieces of ice fall off the ice maker from the back. This may fix it, since it may have been keeping the tray from being able to rotate. Any additional advice would be appreciated.

I have fought with ice makers before and I find it to be easier when considering the time and trouble dedicated to troubleshooting and frustration of not having ice when you want it, to just replace the unit. You can purchase a replacement Ice maker for your fridge on-line for $85.00 plus shipping and handling. At the most you will have to remove 3 screws and unplug one electrical connection (please remember to unplug your fridge before attempting replacement) and your ice troubles will be over.

The automatic ice dispenser is not working. How can I tell if it is the motor or the switch not working?


On my Whirlpool, the water splashes on the rotating parts and sometimes freezes the maker stopping it. Pull the plug on the fridge, use the hose on a vacuum machine plugged into the exhaust to get warm air to the ice maker or use a hair dryer to warm up the ice maker. After you are sure it is defrosted, plug the frige back in and listen for sounds of the ice maker turning or observe every couple minutes to see if the rotating parts are turning

I have side by side and we just put in new filter . we get water but now ice maker is clicking and no ice.


Either something is obstructing the rotation of the ejector comb in the ice maker, causing that click, or the ice maker head gear is missing a tooth or its diconnected entirely, in which case you would have to replace the ice maker. If you attempt to replace that head gear, and its not attached in the exact correct position, your ice maker will not cycle correctly, and you may instead get a flood of water in your freezer.

If you want to be sure of what the problem is, I would highly recommend you have an expert refrigerator repair service inspect your fridge.

Icemaker not working, the water despencer is ok, so i know there is water coming in ,it is in on position, no ice is stuck,what do i look for? next move


When the ice is frozen hard the ice maker has a heater that activates so the ice can be released, the a rotating mechanism rotates to push the ice out of the ice maker. Then cycle starts again by dispensing water in the tray. A lot of times the ice maker itself is defective and must be replaced. They are just attached by two screws and plugs into the freezer plug.
