Question about Samsung RS265LABP Side by Side Refrigerator
Your water dispenser has a water hose that is connected to a water facet (usually on the wall in back or on the side). The water hose goes from the facet to the refrigerator freezer. Sometimes that hose will get stopped up.
First, cut the water off at the wall. Then remove the hose from the refrigerator ice-maker. Get a small pan and place the open end of the water hose into the pan. Now, cut on the water at the wall. Does the water come out of the hose? If it does, there is no stoppage in the hose. If it does not, there is a blockage. If there is a blockage, try to find it by taking a blunt small instrument and insert it in the hose. A blunt instrument may be like a opened clothes hanger. There is also an instrument that you can get at the local hardware store that will help you. If as above there is not a blockage in the hose, you may want to check the entrance hole to the refrigerator ice-maker. There may be a water deposit that is stopping the flow of the water.
Hope this helps, Dana

I had the same problem. Turned out to be a microswitch under the lever used to activate it. The microswitch fell from the original position so it wasn't turning on anything. I tried gluing into position but the fumes from the crazy glue messed up the switch and I had to replace the whole rig.
The part is under the control display. You can pry it open from the left side.

is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
