We broke the water dispensor hose off the freezer door of our Samsung RS277. it should be a simple fix to take the door apart and replace the hose. How do I take apart the door. Any tips would be muchly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: how to take apart the freezer door
IF I KNEW YOUR EMAIL I COULD SEND YOU THE PAGE FOR THE FREEZER DOOR. THE TUBING IS INSIDE OF THE FOAM INSULATION AND WOULD BE A BEAR TO REPLACE. THEE BOOKLET FROM THE FACTORY DOES NOT ADDRESS REPLACING THE TUBING ANYWHERE. COULD YOU JUST SPLICE A PIECE ONTO THE REMAINDER OF THE TUBING. GOOD LUCK

The water line in the door is frozen . Several ways to thaw . 1 ) turn on the dispensor light for a few daws until thawed , 2 ) raise the freezer temp a few days until thawed , 3 ) use compressed air to the bottom of the door on the line , to blow out the ice , 4 ) order the GE dispensor heater pt. # WR49X10173 , it comes with installation instructions .
If the light and ice dispenser on the front panel works and If your fridge is 4 years old or older, the insulation in the freezer door has most likely deteriorated and the water in the tube feeding the water dispenser has probably frozen. Open the freezer door, put a blanket over the food to keep it from defrosting, and use a blow dryer to defrost the door. Blow the hot air on the flat panel inside the door (the backside of the water dispenser). Close the door about every 5 minutes to check to see if the water works. Once the water begins to flow, you have successfully defrosted the ice in the tube. Defrosting the door works for about 12 hours until it freezes again. To solve this problem, I placed a 10" weedeater line up thorugh the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8 of an inch sticking out. When the line freezes again, pull out the weedeater line, dispense water to free the ice, and then reinsert the weadeater line. I keep the line in all the time...it works great! If the light or ice dispenser do not work, the problem may be *********** board.
Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .
it should hook up to a water line with a coupling at the bottom of the freezer door. take the kickploate off and then look underneith the refrigeraqtor and there should be a clear plastic tube there3 to hook up to.
If you have ice and water in the freezer door it would appear that the water line going to the water dispensor has a leak. First check where the door hindges at the bottom as this is where the line runs from the water container located in the fresh food compartment to the water dispensor in the freezer door.
