Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator
After a power outage our block experienced and the power came back on, the control panel on the front of the refrigerator is not working at all. None of the light are lit up ..the ice despenser does not work but the water dispenser does. I don't think the motor is running either...but the light is on when you open the refrigerator side of the unit. What is the problem and how can I resolve it? Thank you
Unplug the power cord for a couple of minutes, and see if it resets itself do you hear the fan running, is it cooling and the freezer is keeping cold temp if, if it doesnt reset you could have a bad control board

Whilst I have never worked on one of these specific units, from your description of the symptoms and circumstances it is very probable that the power supply that runs the control panel has not survived the surge that often accompanies the return of power after a blackout. Most likely failure will be any mains fuse or surge limiting resistor fitted in line with the mains feeding the supply. If you are very unlucky, the power supply itself may well have failed, but this is highly unlikely.
Either way though you're going to need an experienced electronics tech to take a look at the unit for you. This is one of those awkward situations where a refrigeration mechanic would have no idea how to service the electronics, while many electronics techs would be very wary about pulling apart an unfamiliar piece of equipment like a fridge. Your best bet would be to call a firm who have experience in both white-goods (appliance) and brown-goods (electronics) servicing where you will have the best hope of getting a serviceperson who is across both disciplines. Then again if you have the necessary skills yourself to tackle it, you could try checking out the supply lines to the control board, but do this only if you have tons of experience in working with mains powered equipment!

SOUNDS TO ME THE TRANSPORT AUGER MOTOR NEEDS REPLACEMENT. JUST MAKE SURE THAT ON THE CONTROL PANEL, THE CHILD INTERLOCK IS NOT ON WHICH STOPS ICE DISPENSING OPERATION. JUST DONE ONE NOW WITH THE EXACT FAULT.

try removing the ice bin.press the power cool and fridge button for 12 seconds to get the option mode.use the fridge button and set the option to 3.replace the ice bin then wait for over 12 hours before pressing the ice dispensor.
