SOURCE: Water will not dispense--fairly new filter

Are you sure about that model number because I have the service manual for a RS265AA if you like. The water valve can be tested ao back with a multi-meter and should show 120 volts or your home voltage when someone presses the dispense water switch. If yes the voltage is present the water control valve is defective and will need replaced.Double check your model number because there are no Samsung refrigerators with the RF2 prefix RS2 is Samsung prefix. Let me know, what you find, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Front ice/water dispenser stopped working.

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.

It sounds like the water filter needs changed. Yes I see It's only been one month. Also make sure you have good water pressure to the frig.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Samsung RS267TDRS Refrigerator -- no water coming

The most common reason water stops are 1. The water line has frozen, but its not the part in the freezer door. Behind the crisper bins in the fresh food section, you might not see it but it behind the back wall. Heat up that area with a hair dryer, or if its not full shut it off for 24 hours and it will do the trick. 2. The pump that sends the water to the dispencer is dead, it will be located behind the ref lower left hand side behind panel (follow the water line) part # DA74-40149D, you can order it at marcone.com for about 27.00
Good luck, if those dont work let me know

SOURCE: Ice dispenser problem Samsung rf4287hars

Check that you ice maker is on, do you have ice in the bucket?
Check you ice drain is not plugged. Do you hear some humming noise when you push the ice dispenser? This could be a complex problem.

Everything normal on my GE Profile Model PFSF6PKWBBB French door bottom freezer refridgerator except the water dispenser just quit dispensing water. Is it frozen? How do I fix it?


The paddle that you push the glass against to dispense water activates a microswitch. Sometimes this switch can break off it's mount and drop away from it's intended position. The microswitch operates a solenoid valve near where the water line enters the back of the fridge. Then there's the wiring in between them. The water line doesn't go through the freezer. It runs through the refrigerator in a coil of tubing then into the door of the dispenser. Check the paddle switch, the water solenoid and the wiring and you'll find the reason it doesn't work

Not making ice. Have water at fridge?? Please help?


If the ice slots are not filled with ice from the last time water filled the slots then it points to the=> Water Inlet Valve DA97-07827B If you fill the ice slots with water and allow it to freeze it should dump or drop the cubes into the ice bucket. If nothing happens then this points to the=> DA97-07365G Ice Maker Assembly List of=> RF4287HARS Parts I'm here should you have question, Thanks, Sea Breeze

First photo shows paddle assembly that can be purchased you need to got to Sears web site to find part # other wise you will have to buy the whole circuit board assembly hundreds more than the paddle assembly. The circuit board and paddle assembly is removed buy removing screw on inside of door and pulling it out be careful it seems strange but it just pops out. The paddle assembly slides on to the circuit board assembly look close and take your time to slide it off I thought I was going to break mine but did not and save me big money.
Second photo shows tab for water dispensing still there.
Third photo show ice dispensing tab broken and missing.
If you leave the assembly plugged in press the micro switch for the ice dispenser and see if it works most likely the tab has broken and is what hits the switch telling the door to open and ice dispensing screw to push ice to the door. Hope this helps

Samsung rf4287hars dispenser not dispensing ice


SAMSUNG RF4282/HARS has a total backwards-double negative on the menu screen ( at least to me ) tho granted, the ice maker is perhaps, lets say, one of the slower cube makers I have ever seen... it has a setting that is .... "Ice Making OFF".... with the option ON/OFF.... make sure that setting is set to OFF if u want ice, or non Orange on the ON screen, or no ice will be made... It could have been worded much better... ie: "Turn Ice Making Off" with option yes or no... but no... My mind says...Make Ice, have options yes or no = just that....if I select YES ... ice making should be on.... not with Samsung... Kinda should go with the other setup settings that Samsung has..... simple yes/no
Words are.... ( selection )
"Ice Making OFF" setting should be set to OFF... just to do that... you are turning the shut down mode OFF and u will be making ice ( you are turning the shut down ice making function OFF in common terms)
As expensive as this machine is.... It should be easier and programing should restore after a power flux.... anyone wanting a lot of ice... forget this machine... we continue to purchase bagged ice and keep it in the freezer in the garage, it can\'t keep up on a daily basis.... I continually have to re-enter my WIFI passcode at every power outage... ( sometimes a lot in summer with storms )
My wife wanted it.... steel look.... she now finds she hates keeping it clean... NEVER AGAIN.... Samsung has some great products, but we have to suck up on this one... never again

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

Ice maker dispenses ice without anyone pushing button.


Possible fault with the electrical connector at the bottom of the door as these can corrode or the microswitch behind the paddle has got jammed , try pulling the paddle forward a little . You should hear the switch click when you push the paddle back .
