Might need to replace tank heater located behind the evaporator assembly panel

Get some foam hollowed tubeing for insullateing plubing and cut a slit down it and shorten it to the tubes leading away from the tank rap it around the plastice tubes so air isn't directly on it. This some times does the trick really well. If from there it keeps on you may be a temp. control problem that is freezing it up. Also tank temps. Most Samsung fridges should be 37degrees in the fridge section and 0degrees in freezer section. Hit me up if you have any other ploblems.

Water line is freezing up in refrigerator thermo set at 42

Yep, This sounds like a freezing problem, there is a water tank heater and a water line heater in the system, The tank heater is located behind the panel that the tank is mounted to. there is also a heater fuse in the circuit behind the panel. you will need to us a heat gun or blow dryer to defrost and check somethings back there. I saw someone selling a repair service manual on the online auction place E b a y that may help you further troubleshoot the problem.

My refrigerator water dispenser stopped suddenly yesterday. Water connection is good, filter is 3 months old, switch clicks on main panel. Have held switch down for a while. ???? Help please

Is the ice still dispensing? If you still are able to dispense ice then its possible that the water storage tank is frozen. The water tank is located in the back of the refrigerator section behind the crispers so they can sometimes freeze. You can try turning up the refrigerator section 1 setting warmer. If that doesn't fix it it's possible the solenoid for the water side on your inlet valve is bad.

My Aman side by side quit dispensing water. It

Does your fridge have a small tank inside the food compartment? If so, the water may have frozen in the tank and the problem can be solved if you take a blow dryer and warm the tank. That's what happened to mine and with a temp adjustment to keep the food compartment a bit warmer, the water doesn't freeze.

Ice and water not working, then freezing in refrigerator, leaking

If the water tank in the fresh food section is leaking then you will need to replace it. the freezing in the fresh food section is due to the damper door not closing when it should. at the top left of the fresh food side there is a door that controls how much cold air it gets from the Freezer side. This door on your GE is controled by a motorized door witch is controled by a controlboard witch is reading sensors in your freezer and freshfood section for tempretures.

In short your freezing problem could be any of these:
temp sensor, Motorized damper door or control board. I would check the Motorized damper door first.

I believe you are having a combination of problems. Your air damper with fan is malfunctioning and causing freezing inside your fresh food section. The part number is WR49X10091 and there is a better replacement for that now.Refrigerator air inlet cover/damper kit with fan motor. Damper and fan assembly has been updated to prevent freezing in the refrigerator. As for the water tank epoxy does not work well with plastic so I would replace the tank to prevent having to go back later and do it again. I will assist you through this if you like, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore Side By Side- Water Dispensed from door not cold

That is not a complete model# so it is hard to know exactly what you have but the old fridges (kenmore and others) had a pretty straight shot from the water holding tank to the tube that shot water in your glass so it was typically colder.

The newer ones have extra plumbing for filters along with tiny holding tanks. Most manufactures have gone out of their way to make the tanks not freeze but in doing so have made the water more "cool" instead of "cold".

It is not in the way you set it but more of the way things have become. Please give a complete model# (from inside the unit on the sticker and not off the owners manual) if you need more assistance.
