SOURCE: change water filter indicator came

This unit has water dispenser and ice maker? If yes, you must get all the air out of your water line, how to do this is keep fill water glasses until you get a good flow of water and no more air, also the water may drip some what so. until all the air is pushed out of the line your ice maker can not make any ice, please let me know what you find. Thanks Rick...

SOURCE: ice maker won't make ice but water is cold and works at dispenser.

Note: Always make sure your filter is current if you have one. Not doing so will cause water to not despence properly
Pull the machine out and remove the lower back cover. Locate the water valve. With the water turned on and connected remove the 5/16" water line (the bigger one) and then have someone else press the water in the door. If the cylinoid is operating correctly it should spray water out.If so, you just verified that the valve and electrical portions are working properly and either the filter is bad or the resevoir, , located inside the lower refrigerator side is frozen. If no water comes out but the valve vibrates, then the valve is bad. If no water and no vibration, continue reading.With the machine plugged in but the wires that go to the valve for the dispenser off take a volt meter and place a lead to each wire and have someone press the panel in the door as if getting water. The reading should go from 0 to around 115-120 a/c.If your not getting electricity down there at anytime than thje door switch is bad.
Testing the ice maker:
As far as the smaller line (1/4") you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. You can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked m and the other in the cicle marked n. Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Also check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in.

SOURCE: water won't dispense but ice maker works

Most likely the valve has failed. Usually located in the back of the refrigerator, near the bottom - otherwise, follow your water line (feed from the house water supply).

Samsung RFG298 Freezer Drawer is not sliding out all the way.


Look for an obstruction on the slide-rails, or ice building up on one of them... Maybe this will help, LG and Samsung use a lot of the same designs. (garbage)

I have Samsung refrigerator RFG298 series the ice maker stopped working and sounds like a dog barking when it's running any ideas what it could be ?


Possibly the gear drive faulty in the ice maker, or it could be the dispensing chute has ice blocking it from closing properly. Completely empty the ice tray and make sure there is no ice anywhere in the tray, guides or ejection chute to the front door. On some, there is a little button under the icemaker for testing and forcing an ice maker operation. Press it and see if the ice tray rotates and reloads with water.

Ice maker will not make ice Model number


  • When it Won't Make Ice
    • 1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
    • 2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
    • 3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
    • 4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.
  • Hope this tips will help you.
