Question about Samsung RS261MD 26 cu. ft. Side by Side Refrigerator with 4 Tempered Glass Spill Proof Shelves, Power Freeze/Cool Options, LED Lighting, Compact Icemaker, Door Alarm and External Ice/Water Dispenser
Had a noise develop in behind the ice maker that sounded like fan blades hitting something. I pulled the ice maker out and saw what looked like ice partially blocking some sort of vent. Took a blow dryer to melt the ice and the noise stopped but now every couple of weeks I have to do the same thing again. Whats the problem??

My name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
It is not uncommon, especially with the flex mold type ice makers to have a ice cub jam the operation. I have gone on many a service call to find this the problem. I suspect over a period of time the vibration of opening and closing the bottom freezer door may have jarred it loose. Your rocker arm may also have been stuck.
It is not common but possible that the ice maker water solenoid valve spool may have been stuck. I would check this by gently tapping on the solenoid valve with a tool. It may have freed itself once again over time through normal operation vibration.
