Question about Samsung Refrigerators
I am trying to replace the electronic panel for the water and ice depenser
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Samsung has a lot of different models.
Send me the model number. It should be on a label on the wall of your fresh food section

Apazm1, unfortunately your main control board is the culprit for your woes. The part number is WR55X10552 and retails for ~$115.00. There's good news, though! It's readily available, (all the appliance parts retailers have them) AND they are easy to install. After you have the new part in hand, open the box and read the instructions CAREFULLY. These boards have been modified from the original OEM's and work on all fridges like yours. UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE! Pull it away from the wall, locate the aluminum panel that covers the computer and remove it (4 screws). The board is held in place by 4 white clip tabs. They poke through the board at (roughly) the 4 corners of it. Look closely at these with a flashlight... you'll see where you need to squeeze them with a pair of needle nose pliers to release them (squeeze the clip and pull that area of the board at the same time). Then remove all the connectors from the board. Now snap the new board into place and reconnect all the wires. This is where you need to pay attention to the instruction sheet! Look out for that white "jumper" in "pin #2"... if you don't get this right your fridge won't work right. Here's the reason I know it's the main board and not the board behind the dispenser area... the dispenser board is low voltage, the main board is high voltage. The dispenser board only sends a signal to the main board. From there, the main translates this input into a high voltage command for the component you have selected (water, ice crushed, cubed, etc...) The components that aren't working on your fridge are high (120) voltage parts controlled by the main board... ergo, failed main board. Hope this helps! Let us know how it goes, will ya?

You tell us about this board or that board but never tell us where to located or get at these boards. Would you please clarify that?
My ice and water started dispensing sporadically, though the lights were working fine. After I removed the kick board at the bottom, cleaned out the little connector and put it back together, nothing on the door works. All else works fine.

Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test the water solenoid with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad.

My door dispenser loses power and I can uplug fridge and plug back in and I have power, then after a few minutes the power goes off again.
