Question about Samsung RF4287HARS French Door Refrigerator
Will dispense water but not ice. Could my problem be something other than the ice switch?
Check the icemaker first. Can you hear the auger motor when paddle is pressed? Is there ice in the bin?

there is a double valve at the back bottom lhs. check continuity of both valve coils but doubtfull this is the problem. the fault may be that the filling tube is frozen. try looking in this area

SOURCE: Ice Maker Not Dispensing
I have fought with ice makers before and I find it to be easier when considering the time and trouble dedicated to troubleshooting and frustration of not having ice when you want it, to just replace the unit. You can purchase a replacement Ice maker for your fridge on-line for $85.00 plus shipping and handling. At the most you will have to remove 3 screws and unplug one electrical connection (please remember to unplug your fridge before attempting replacement) and your ice troubles will be over.

Pour about 1/2 cup of water into ice maker . If it dumps , replace the water valve . If doesn't dump , replace the ice maker . Also make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , etc...

SOURCE: Ice cube dispenser not working
I had this problem. The root cause was that mineral deposits had built up in the ice cube tray. The ice would not "dump"... but stayed in the tray after the dump cycle. I did not catch it quickly and eventually the plastic frame broke. That was easily replaced. Inspect the ice tray to see that all cube surfaces are smooth. If there are mineral deposits, they need to be removed. Do NOT scrub with anything abraisive or you will ruin the tray. As you are looking straight on at the Ice maker, with the bin out, depress the small black retangular tab. The tray assembly will come apart to remove the tray. Rinse the tray, then fill with warm vinegar. Let it soak. You may scrub with soft cloth, finger or fingernail to remove deposits. Replace the tray and you should be in business.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be a microswitch under the lever used to activate it. The microswitch fell from the original position so it wasn't turning on anything. I tried gluing into position but the fumes from the crazy glue messed up the switch and I had to replace the whole rig.
The part is under the control display. You can pry it open from the left side.
