Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Samsung RS2544SL The ice making doesnt get any water. I just got the fridge used, and the previous owner had gotten it used as well (from one of those places where stuff goes that has been bent or otherwise damaged from the big box store). The filtered water works and the corkscrew in the ice tray works. I can see and hear the switch working inside the place the arm that stops it from making more ice. It looks like the drinking and ice waters come through the same pump, likely using the same solenoid, maybe? The previous owner had the fridge hooked up and going without water hooked to it for a few weeks when he originaly brought it home. He also said it made ice a few times. When we moved it the thing was unplugged and doors were off long enough, I would think, to defrost the filler hose above the ice cube tray. I dont see any pinched lines on the back, there are 3 lines (white from the house, blue from that hole to lower right of unit where the pump is and grey going up to ice maker from there). How would I test to see if everything is working properly in that pump area etc. Do I have to prime the lines after it running for so long without water. Please Help! sorry if I was a little too explanatory =)
Hold the reset button for a full 8 seconds on the ice maker. Remove the Ice tray, and the reset is located on the right hand side, near the top, close to the front of ice maker. The reset is behind a flexible rubber type material that protects the electronics. Just push on it, do not try to remove the protector.

There is no pump per say.. the water pressure is all that fills the ice maker and provides water to the drinking dispensor. The solenoids are also different, one activates for ice maker and the other for drinking water. The fastest way to check water flow is to swap the wires on the solenoids so the drinking water "power" will now power the ice fill solenoid. Once the plugs are swapped and you press the drinking water lever the ice maker should pour water out the fill tube. If that works then you know the solenoid, tube, etc. are all fine. I'd suspect then that the ice maker fill solenoid isn't getting power when it is suppose to fill. Let me know what this test result is.

Ice maker stopped making
ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water
filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the
water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the
water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not
getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem
is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the
water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the
other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from
which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked
then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using
hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in
the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill
tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other
possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is
for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for
7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then
water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next
water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are
two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main
valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back
of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the
ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice
maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is
water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But
now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's
still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is
controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker
but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem
is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice
or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve.
