Question about Samsung Refrigerators

Open Question

Samsung Reefer Model RF265ABWP ice maker stopped making ice. Subsequent to vacation of 2 weeks where water supply to residence was turned off. Removed filter to find small stones and red moud lodged in filter. Put in new filter but no response from ice maker. Fridge was purchased 8/1/08 from Lowes. No extended warranty. In June we were gone for approx. 3 weeks and had no problem on return. Same seqence of turning off water to house. Sounds like it tries to fill but no ice. Any ideas? Jim Robison Rock Hill,SC.

SOURCE: RS2556SH Side by Side - Icemaker not filling; fill tube not iced over!?

Is the freezer section below 17 degrees F? Did the ice maker get switched off by accident? Does the ice maker solenoid valve "click" when trying to fill with water?

SOURCE: Superba ice maker stopped working, door water still dispensing

I think what happened here is that it just didn't prime after you moved it. As long as the ejector blades are in the 2:00 position the module should be ok and it sounds like the optics are working good. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the ice maker harness cover on the lower right side. Pull the cover off. Now pull the ice-maker straight out but leave the harness plugged in. Get yourself a piece of insulated wire about 4 inches long and strip each end about 1/4 inch. Unplug the refrigerator. Pull the cover off the icemaker module. You will see 2 test ports marked T & H. Place the jumper wire in T & H and place the ice maker on the shelf where you have enough room to close the freezer door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 60 seconds and open the freezer door. The module should be rotating. If it's not, press the light switch 3 times, see if it starts. If its rotating, remove the jumper wire, put the cover back on and place the ice-maker back in it's holder. The water should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Follow the above in the exact order and you should be back in business. Catriver..post back.

It sound's like you have a faulty icemaker. The icemaker has an internal timer that commands the inlet valve on at the correct time. If it does not stop the command, it will continue to fill. When you shut off the system, it kills power to the icemaker and that is why the solenoid goes off.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator (GS5SHAXNLOO) Ice maker not running, some ice in maker melted together

I have the same model. This has happened to me several times (usually when the door was kept ajar without notice).
Simply open the door, take a common hairdryer and blow at high speed (hottest also) all around the area of where you can feel the ice in the tray, but hasn't dumped yet. It will usually take about 5-8 minutes of consistently moving back and forth around that area. What has happened is the lines bringing water to the trays have frozen over. When you "thaw" them out, the ice made will dump in about 45 minutes. When you hear the ice fall, you will know it's in working order again. I have NOT heard this is a "flawed" icemaker, only that it is hypersensitive to freezing lines when a door is left ajar. In your case, to prevent this from happening again. If you shut the icemaker off again, make SURE you turn off the source of the water feed BEFORE you turn off the ice maker. By doing this, the lines will empty as it makes it's last tray of water. Try that - very confident it will fix your problem!

First make sure you have water going to refrigerator Samsung water filter heads go bad and won't let water thru or it could be the fill valve it's right near the filter

It is quite possible the water line near the ice-maker is frozen. I would try a warm hair drier to thaw it out.
