Question about Samsung RF265AA Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Makes very little ice, chg filter lite stays on-2 days old!

New fridge, Samsung RF265AB. Since it was set up yesterday, very little ice has been made, AND the change filter light stays on, even though it's new. The instruction manual has virtually no information. Just wondering how normal this is....the set up guys left a small dent on one of the front doors and Sears has offered to replace the entire fridge (silly, since it's just a door), or give me a $100 gift card to compensate for the dent. But, if the ice and filter light issues are not normal, I'm thinking I an entirely new unit is wise.....Thanks! we have a ice maker problem it makes ice good for a couple of days then it stops and makes lots of noise when trying to drop ice. i have the RF267aa

Check that the valve to the H2o supply is turned on full tilt, check for kinks in the tubing hopes that helps DFD

Ice maker stopped making ice yesterday. I changed the water filter, but it still hasn't done anything There are no ice cubes jammed.

the icemaker line from the basement to the fridge may be bad, clogged or the little fitting they put on the water pipe to connect the plastic line to your fridge could have sentiment in it, clogging the water. Ice Maker needs a certain amount of pressure in line to work properly!

Hotpoint fridge dispenser works on water but not ice

If the little green lites show up , you do not need a circuit board . If you get a hum or buzzing noise when pushing for CRUSHED ice , then the auger motor is frozen up . Remove the ice bin and use a hair dryer directly on the forks which turn the dispensor . The heat will transfer into the motor , defrosting the armature . Try closing the freezer door ocassionally and pushing the arm to test if forks turn .

I just bought a new one and plugged it in about 2 hours ago. when does the ice maker start to make ice?? and what is the correct temp for the fridge and freezer to be at??

it will take a little while for the ice maker to get the air out of the line so it can make ice. Start with the middle number on the temp guage and adjust after a few days if necessary. hope this helps :)

the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)
