I think you are referring to the water filter alarm. When it first starts coming in, you only notice it when you blink. As time passes, the color becomes more pronounced....If this is right, we'll move on from here, if not, please re-post, and please don't mention the village idiot (me).
The alarm can come on if a high differential pressure is sensed across the filter, or it can come on at pre-programmed times. If the fridge is relatively new, and the quality of the water is good, you can reset the alarm. On my model, I hold down the "ice type" and "child lock" buttons for about 5 seconds. The actual filter is located in the fridge, on the upper right hand side. These filters are somewhat expensive. I say that to say this....You can extend the life of your filter by installing an in-line filter between the wall water valve and the back of the fridge. This will act as a pre-filter for the Samsung filter. They cost usually about a quarter of the cost of the Samsung filters, and are easily replaced. Should you decide to replace your filter, Ebay is a very good source at a less than retail price.
Hope this was what you needed...regards --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution!

Fridge Freezer model KA58NP90 Ice maker problem


What is most likely your problem is the crushed ice solenoid. This solenoid, which is located next to the auger motor behind the ice bucket, is failing to actuate when you request cubed ice. Its "home" setting is crushed, and actuates to allow cubes past the crushing mechanism in the bucket. To be certain its the problem, remove the ice bucket, and tape the door light switch in the closed position. actuate the ice dispenser lever, for both cubed and crushed ice. you will see a square hole next to the rotating fork, when you select cubes, it should open. If it does open, there is something wrong with your ice bucket, perhaps the arm is broken, or the door inside bucket is off its snap in type hinge or broken altogether. If it doesnt open, replace the solenoid

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Why is there water in the ice bucket of my ice maker? It is a GE side by side, but without the dispenser in the door.


hello, how are you, if there is water in your ice bucket, it seems as though when your icemaker sends a signal to water valve to give water, your water valve is sending too much water into icemaker, the solution would be to replace water valve which is behind the refrigerator at the bottom. it should be blue in color which clear plastic tubing connected to it. This happens when the water valve solenoid doesnt close completely.

Ice maker is not working. Our freezer fridge side by side is about 8 yrs old...and now the ice maker is not making ice cubes. It is as if no water is getting to the machine. I have turned the...


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Probably the dual water valve (that opens when the ice maker needs water ) is leaking and the filling tube gets clogh with ice , or the valve doesn't work ,in both cases it has to be replace.
