Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have water flowing through to the door, but the ice maker is not making ice and doesn't appear to have water flowing to it. Also, there is water on the floor under the unit.
There may also be another cause. I had a problem with the temperature rising in my Samsung RS2534WW freezer, water showing up underneath, and the ice becoming rather slushy. I called Samsung, and they contracted a repair service to check it out.
In my case, here's what had happened: at the bottom of the cooling section (behind the huge cover at the back of the freezer), there is a very small drain, where condensation goes after the evaporator kicks in (to keep the cooling section from icing over). My drain had gotten clogged.
With a clogged drain, the evaporated ice (now water) was pooling... then freezing. Eventually so much ice built up that the cooling unit could no longer work properly.
A hair dryer did the trick and I was able to remove the ice buildup. I also tested the drain to make sure it was working by pouring a few glasses of hot water down it - I knew that if the water didn't freely pass, then my drain was still clogged.
I'm still keeping an eye on the freezer to make sure it's behaving, but that was definitely the problem in my case.

There could be two [roblems with the ice make. #1 the line that feeds the water into the ice maker could be frozen inside where it dumps water into the maker. Take a hair dire and gentl thak pout the inlet line tha tthe water feeds into the maker. then reate that maker so that all the blockage is cleared. or #2 tej freezer need to be coolder. Don't rate these solutions unitl your problems are resolved because then i cannot post in the problem any more and also be sure too rate the so]lution after ypour problems are solved and rate accordingly. and gernerouosly. thanks for using FixYa.
