Question about Samsung RF265AA Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water dispenses from at angle from front to back of dispenser. Impossible to fill a water bottle or small opening glass. Daughter has same model only 2 years older and her water dispenses from back to front as do other brands of refrigerators. Had authorized Samsung repairman out today, 10/7/09 and he said it the water angle cannot be changed and that he has seen water dispense from front and back; that it depends on the series.

Inside water dispenser pumps water out really slowly on GE Profile PFS22MISBBB


It is possible that your water filters are getting plugged. Have you changed any filters lately?
The meat pan lever may also be turned to the coldest position and on units that have a low water usage, this will also cause the tank to freeze. You will want to lower the meat drawer setting or use more water from the door. This does not apply to Top Mount water dispenser models, because they do not have a reservoir. Problem requiring service, glass fill time.

  • Dispenser drips water constantly will be a water valve problem, and should be checked by a service technician. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.


  • Dribble as defined as a small amount of water (few drops) that may miss the glass ONLY AFTER USAGE. This is due to a delay in the overall system.

    Dribble can be minimized by the following actions:

    - Purge the tank, by holding down the dispenser for 2 to 3 minutes, to remove any trapped air that may be building pressure and causing the dribble.
    - A few drops is normal, but you can also prevent water from missing the glass and dripping down the cradle area by moving glass slower when removing it from the cradle.
    - You may need to periodically empty the recess grill and clean out underneath it to prevent overfilling and water dripping down the front of the refrigerator.


  • Also, remember the dispenser in the door will not operate unless the door is closed

    No ice or water from in-door dispenser


    When you first hook water up to the refrigerator you have to fill a tank in the fridge. Open the water supply behind the ref. turn the control on the front of the ref to water and hold a glass under the spout as if you are filling a glass . You may have to wait 3-4 minutes forthe tank and lines to fill with water before you get any to come out into the glass. The water my be discolored at first so run a few glass full through before drinking . hope this helps

    Not filling with water


    Answer: The magnet goes on the back of the dispenser door. Pull entire dispenser out per instructions elsewhere in manual as if you were going to clean it. Turn it around so that you are looking at it from the back end. The magnet goes vertically on the very left edge (as you're looking at it, right edge when dispenser is in machine) of the back of the white outer cover of the dispenser about halfway down. If you run your finger along the left edge (the edge of the back of the dispenser) you will find a "cut out" area. The magnet goes immediately to the right of it between the edge and the portion of the dispenser that sticks further out toward you. There is a small clip to hold it in place.
    I found instructions somewhere on the web similar to these that helped me locate it , but can't find it now to link or give credit. I have added some photos I took to help schematically challenged folks like myself.
    PS If you need bifocals remove the front cover from the dispenser, take your glasses off and look at the far middle left of the back of the dispenser cover. It's really hard to see.

    Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


    Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!

    Water dispenser is extremely S L O W


    check no ice build up in bottle but the most likely cause is poor water pressure on the inlet. no cure except to improve water pressure. if there is a valve in the input water line, check it is fully open
