Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
Above model stopped making ice after return from vacation...house water shut off during vacation. Water dispenser works fine. Drained approx 2gal via water dispenser with no "air lock" or sputtering noted. Ran test cycle three times without water filling ice tray...no motor sound noted. Fill tube doesn't appear to be iced over. Any thoughts before calling a repairman?
Press the reset button (black) on the bottom of the icemaker, the system will go through a cycle, and water will pour into the tray.

This is common when water supply has been turned off and ice maker is allowed to cycle. With little or no water pressure to the ice maker line, water can weep slowly down the ice maker fill tube, and block it with ice. Easiest fix is to take a hair dryer to the fill tube / manifold on the ice maker until the ice blockage is completely melted. Avoid problems in the future by lifting the bail on your icemaker to prevent it from trying to make ice when your water is shut off to your house.

there is a double valve at the back bottom lhs. check continuity of both valve coils but doubtfull this is the problem. the fault may be that the filling tube is frozen. try looking in this area

Your problem may be in the water supply. Where the water connects to the back of the unit there is an electric valve, not a pump. The electric valve inlet orifice may be restricted, Shut off water supply and clean or replace the electric solenoid valve.

Don't buy another Samsung reffigerator. I won't. I and I will always tell everyone I know the same.
I paid over 1200.000 for my refrigerator in Nov 2006. It has never worked correctly. They have replaced everything on the back three times and it is still not working correctly. Since then the refrigator part is not cooling. Today is Sept 10 2008 and I am going to purchase a new refrigerator. It will never be Samsung again.
