I need to keep the water turned off from the faucet because the water dispenses without pushing in lever. The lever is not stuck in the in position. When I push the lever, it does not seem to have a problem going back and forth. I hear a click and the light turns on.
Some additional information about refrigerator: I kept the temperature to cold and the reseviour in the refrigerator was frozen for a coule of months. I thought the water dispenser had a problem. I adjusted the temperature until the water thawed in the dispenser but then it dispensed out of the door without pushing in lever.

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
It may just be that you need a new cartridge. If you can replace cartridge without to much problem I would do that. Depending on your water quality the cartridge may be very hard to remove on a faucet that old. Also if the handle actuating hole is worn very much you may have to replace it also. By the time you buy parts you may have half or more of the price of new faucet, I would recommend that you replace faucet. Hope this helps. Thanks
The lever you push for water does nothing mechanically to open any water valve. All it does is activate a solenoid coil on the water valve. The water valve itself is dripping like a faucet and needs to be replaced. To replace the valve shut off the water supply and disconnect the water line from the valve. Install the new one. Nothing to it.
Fix a kohler faucet
most likely the gasket broke inside the lever, you have to replace it.
shut the water off from the angle stop (valve under the sink) both hot and cold.
use an allen wrench ("L" wrench) to remove the tiny screw around the lever, >>>>before you do that place a rag covering the drain for if you drop it<<<<
after that pull the lever out, that will show the inside of the faucet.
use an adjustable wrench to remove the actuator from the base.
when you get that part out you should be able to see the damage to the gasket. At that point you need a phillips screwdriver to get the gasket out and back in >>>>take the damaged gasket to the hardware store<<<< and get a replacement you may have to change more than one.
after you get all the gaskets in place, reinsert the actuator and don't forget to tight it up with the adjustable wrench.
center it so it would dispense the same amount of hot and cold water, replace the lever
reinsert the tiny screw with the "L" wrench.
turn on water from angle valves and test faucet.
that should do it and save you about 300 bucks
if it works for you don't forget to rate me
If you can pull on the lever to make water flow stop, chances are there is a mineral buildup inside the valve, or the seat in the valve has failed. Either way, the valve normally needs to be replaced as they are not usually serviceable. Leave the Model number of the refrigerator so that I can check what to replace.
