Question about Samsung RF266AB (25.8 cu. ft.) Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door
Had the same problem. I just ordered a replacement piece from this website. Looks like it just snaps in. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Dispenser-Actuator/DA9704952B/2049390

I have a RS2544SL side by side Samsung with a defrost sensor failure light upon a plug-in reboot, according to the service manual, which I purchase from Samsung so that I could help a local service provider unsuccessfully fix the unit.
The unit was less than 3 years old when I started having problems. The freezer side works although the unit will not re-boot following a power outage because is hangs-up on the defrost sensor flashing light on the front display.
Samsung service providers have stopped working on Samsung refrigerators and Samsung would not suppor the repair.
I had an independent service provider install a new defrost sensor but the reboot-pluging program still hangs-up at the defrost sensor despite a newly installe defrost sensor from Samsung.
The freezer side continues to work well and problems continue with the refrigerator side. The unit continues to fail during power-outages because it hangs-up on the warning light. I by-pass by holding both power freeze and power refrigerator buttons for 10 second as described in the service manual. After by-passing the warning light, the performance of the refrigeration side continues to be unreliable.
What is my next step to get my relatively new Samsung side-by-side refrigerator fixed, since Samsung will not back their warranty and Costco where I bought the unit also will not backup the warranty and purchase.

They rarely use 'heaters' anymore. If there is a heater there will be somthing like a 'energy saver' option to turn it off. More likely it is a mullion loop that is part of the sealed system tubing. The harder the frige works the hotter that area will be. So if the inside temp rises so will the temperature of the mullion. Start by checking your frige and freezer temperatures with a thermometer. The freezer should be between 5-10 deg ABOVE zero and the frige should be about 35 or 36 deg. Also check that the condenser is not dirty. The condenser is the coils that are usually underneath the frige. They should be cleaned at least annually. Also while you're under there make sure the condenser fan is running. You should feel a little air movement and possibly hear it running from the front under the doors. If it's not running you'll need to find out why, but would usually be a problem with the motor. Also there was a carboard panel on the back at the bottom of the frige from the factory, that panel HAS to be in place to direct air across the condenser and not back behind the frige.
