Question about Samsung RF266AE (260 cu ft) Refrigerator

Open Question

We have had our Samsung RF266AERS french door refrigerator for one week. The ice maker (or at least we think that is what it is) is frosted and iced over, making lots of snow. It is sprinkling snow into the pull-out freezer drawer, icing the front of it too, and sprinking snow into the bottom of the freezer, and also icing the small shelf in the front inside of the freezer door. This has been going on for today. A repairperson is coming tomorrow. Why is so much water in our ice maker? We never connected the ice maker to a water line. We never have used the ice maker. We told the installer to turn it off. Does the defrost water run through the ice maker? Or was our new refrigerator used before we got it and water was left in it? Or is what we think is the ice maker just the heater? It is in the left side of the back of the freezer.

SOURCE: GE refrigerator model GSS23QTACC has frost buidup

OK the most likely reason for this on you model is the defrost heater and defrost thermostat will need replaced. The least likely would be the motherboard. The part number for the defrost heater is=> WR51X10055 onece you unplug and manually defrost the refrigerator and remove the rear panel you will be able to see the burned out defrost heater because it is covered by a glass tube. Always replace the defrost thermostat part number=> WR50X10054 when replacing heater. The only thing left would be the defrost control on the motherboard. If you need help there you had better let me know before you go and spend a arm and leg for service.

Simple but a pain. Unplug the refrigerator. Get out your hair dryers and start de-icing the freezer door. Slowly but surly you will get freezer open. Be gentle. Dry EVERYTHING!!! Tracks, rails.....then replace part, plug back in, restock.

Ice maker not working....freezer door had been ajar and freezer frosted up...now the ice maker will not make ice


With the extra frost which is also on your evaporator it reduces the efficiency of the freezer. Put the unit into a defrost cycle, wait for it to enter a defrost cycle on it's on which should be at least once a day or cut if off, open the doors and let it thaw out.

Why is my icemaker not working


My Samsung French-door frig had the same problem - try resetting ice maker - red button on the side of the ice maker. If that doesn't work call Samsung service - I had a bad circuit board which needed to be replaced by local Samsung repair service.
