Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator
There is what appears to be a sensor that comes from the right front side of the ice maker. It was hanging down unsupported. There are several built in "hooks" on the underside of the ice tray. I wound this sensor through these hooks in what I "think" is a logical installation but I really don't know. Since then it has not made ice correctly. Now it seems it is over filling the tray. The manual does not cover this part or have any valuable information regarding the ice maker. I can find no information about the ice maker online. (The sensor is white and connected via two wires to the ice maker.)
I found David's solution very helpful and I'll just add to it. Take out the top freezer door-- it just slides out and up. I had a bunch of stuff on the little shelf on the actual door and I had to take some of it off first. The big bottom drawer stays on. The little foam piece was on the floor of the freezer so I picked that up and can see how the little sensor part fits into it. Next, I put a chair next to the open bottom drawer, sat on it and leaned back onto and into the big drawer. I had to torque my head to actually get right under the ice maker. I am 5'5" so I don't know the heck David did it! Anyway, there is a little "slot" next to the last ice cube mold closest to the door. This is where the foam piece goes in. The slot where this piece goes has some raised lines sticking out on each side-- I wouldn't call them brackets and the foam thing doesn't stay in well by itself. However, on the right side of the ice maker, near that last cube, is a little hook. So I slid foam piece up with the sensor tucked in, facing the ice cube mold. I wrapped the tail/wire around the bottom of the foam piece and also the hook, so that it kind of holds the foam piece up in there, kind of cradling it. That was my solution, we'll see if it works!

SOURCE: I believe, the ice sensor
Haven't been able to find a reasonable diagram anywhere. Hope you still aren't having this problem but here's what I learned when repairing mine.
There are 2 pieces that reattach the sensor. There is a foam-rubber piece that the sensor seats into. There is a channel in it for the wire. This assembly is held into place by a plastic bracket. Before getting in there, make sure you put the three together to see how the fit.
Pull out the top drawer of the freezer. Place the sensor back into the foam-rubber piece. Wiggle your head in to the freezer looking up at the bottom of the ice maker (I'm 6'4" 220, wasn't easy). The foam-rubber piece will slide up behind and underneath the last cube, closest to the door, such that the sensor is making direct contact with the cube. You can then slide the plastic bracket into place. There is a small pin like protrusion on the bracket that will hold the whole thing up. You may alternately try putting the whole assembly in together, but I had worse luck trying this.
When you've got it, its still going to be kind of loose, explaining why it fell out to begin with. Really poor design here. Anyway, should be able to give it a tug and it won't come out. Make sure the wire for the sensor isn't protruding anywhere that it will snag. From now on, I'll be real careful that ice doesn't build up and rip this off again.

SOURCE: My samsung rf265abwp ice maker is over filling the ice tray, the wiring harness is hanging down, I don't know where it attatches and I suspect this is what is causing the ice maker to malfunction caus
I have the same problem, has anyone figured out how to fix it?

I have read that if you unplug the unit and plug it back in again, it will "reset" it. I would wait 15 or so minutes before replugging just to be sure. Of course, this solution doesn't preclude the problem from happening again - sounds like a manufacturing defect to me.

I know this is a little old, but I had the same problem. It turns out that under the Ice tray, there are some plastic clamps that you can set the hanging hose onto, along with a hook that the thermostat (harder thing) hangs on.
