Question about Samsung RS2630WW Side by Side Refrigerator

Can the water flow be made faster?

Purchased a house and they have a Samsung side by side with an icemaker and water but the water is VERY slow and I see a little bit of melted ice at the bottom of the freezer, its empty but cold and has ice , Is it possible they lost power and this water flow needs to be reset? or partly frozen?

A SLOW WATER FLOW IS USUALLY THE RESULT OF A CLOGGED OR INHIBITED WATER VALVE LINE OR HOSE. IF THE LINE IS FROZEN OR HAS DEBRIS IT WILL SLOW THE FLOW

SOURCE: ice forming on freezer

The drain is plugged. This fridge will defrost every 8 hrs or so. When it does , it will melt the frost that has built up on the evaporator. This melted frost will run down a drain under the evaporator to a drain in the bottom directly under the evaporator. When the drain gets plugged the water cannot drain out of the freezer compartment. After several defrost cycles the melted frost will overflow onto the freezer floor. When the fridge starts back up it will freez this water is the bottom of the fridge. sometimes this water that is now ice will melt on the next defrost cycle and actually run out into the floor. You will have to unplug the fridge or turn it off, then remove the cover to the evaporator. Get a hair dryer and melt the ice aruond the evaporator and drain. Once the ice is removed, check the drain and try to clear it. Once clear, replace everything but the shelves. Plug the fridge back in or turn it back on. Observe and listen for the evaporator fan. It should be running now. When working on the ice on the evaporator always be carefull. The defrost heater can be damaged if up push or pull on it too much.

SOURCE: icemaker tuns but ice does not drop out

OK the reason the Ice isn't dropping is that the element under the icecube tray isn't working. You'll need a new Ice tray with element I'd be guessing, but see how you can buy it. Some models you need a whole new ice maker. Cheers

SOURCE: Samsung RS267 Icemaker too slow - not waterline

I have recently bought a new Samsung fridge and discovered slow ice production. I found out that I had the freezer temp setting too high. I had it at -2 degrees which is recommended but apparently Samsung isn't very good about freezing the ice so you have to set it to -4 or -6 degrees. Try that and see if ice production is faster. For me with a family of 5 and my wife and I drinking cocktails every night it wasn't enough. So we ended up buying a second fridge but chose Whirlpool which can fill an entire bucket of ice in 24 hours. Samsung is more like 2 days. The fridge installer even said Samsung is one of the worst at producing ice while Whirlpool is the best.

Installed new ice maker, produces ice slow, is there a way to adjust for faster or slower?


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig is frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Clean or replace your house water supply valve for the waterline to the icemaker. (Saddle Valve)
Over time the valve can become restricted with minerals from the water.

Get a good connection to the cold water line, buy a good filter and run copper to the back of your refrigerator. Don't use a piercing valve. I know how you feel. Oh, put shutoff on side of filter housing that feeds the filter. Sea Breeze

Water leaking underneath icemaker, dripping into ice tray


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the first one.

if it does the problem is with the water valve of the frig
if it does not fill the container fairlly quickly then the problem is the plumbing of the house to the frig valve

Slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic


The water line tap may be screwed back into the water line or you did not sufficiently poke a hole into the water line with the tap. We had the same problem. Shut off the water supply, remove the tap from the line and check the size of the hole. my bet is the hole is very small. Either drill out the hole with a drill and replace the tap (with a new rubber grommet) or add a tee into the line with the proper size compression fitting (that is what we did) and the water will flow freely..
