I hope you have the guide to remove the doors of your model. And that you follow correctly these steps

1. Using a flat head screwdriver, gently pry off the door latch bezels. A door latch bezel is illustrated on the left image. (Important not to break off the lock tabs on the bezel on the right image)

2. Remove 3 screws from can not remove the double doors of samsung - alpug_2.jpegr.

Lift the top cover up. Disconnect both door switch connectors, and then gently pry out the ambient air temperature sensor.

4. Disconnect the two electrical connectors on the left hand side.

Disconnect the water line by pushing in the release tab towards the connector housing, and then pull the white water line out of the housing.

On both hinges, remove the screw holding the green/yellow ground wire using a # 2 Phillips screwdriver, and then disconnect the green/yellow ground wire from the hinge assembly.
7. Remove the three 10mm hex head bolts, and then remove the upper hinge.Repeat for the other hinge. (Warning: Have an assistant to support the door before removing the bolts. The door is heavy and can fall.)

8. Lift the door off the lower hinge and remove.

Where can I get a repair manual for my Samsung model RF265AABP French Door Refrigerator. Could you send me a link to where I might get one?

Go on Ebay or Amazon and see if a repair manual is available. Even if you have one, this repair is beyond the ability of the average person.

Samsung rf4287hars control panel blinking

This could be a temperature sensor problem. My RF265AABP model had a broken ice maker temperature sensor wire that caused it to read 88 88 with the last 8 blinking. See my detailed posts under this model for more info on diagnosing it.

Check for broken wires on your ice maker temperature sensor. On my model RF265AABP that was the problem causing display to read 88 88 with one digit blinking.

How to replace samsung flex-tray ice tray

On my model RF265AABP, it is easy to get the ice maker out, once you discover how to remove the drawer from the slides (two plastic clips at the rear of the slides).
Pull the front cover off, take out the two screws, and unplug the wire connector and it drops right out. Yours may be different.

Not making ice

Check the ice maker temperature sensor. Mine (model RF265AABP) falls out easily and sometimes the wires break, causing the digital readout to read 88 88 and flash.
