Refrigerator ice maker not working known/unknowns


I don't think there's anything else it you could check. But, if it's a slide-out unit you can jiggle, push, pull & twist it to see if it just came a little loose & has a bad connection. Ice overflows or overfills can jockey them around to inoperability.

Also, check the manual of course. If you can uninstall & reinstall, you may find unplugging (turning off the circuit breaker, if known) the fridge for this operation & then plugging it back it clears any fault & gets it working again. In that case it may be a temporary fault or a first fault in the motor going bad & drawing too much power or not working at all. If the "reset" works, then you'll have to wait for it to fail again & it may...

This will be one of three things. There is a valve for the ice maker and a separate valve for the water dispenser. You can check each one by switching the leads from one to the other.
This will check the valve.
The next possible cause is the door keypad, (if equipped) this is a little harder to check and is easier with two people, use the same procedure of switching the leads but also check with the keypad which switch is operating which valve.
The third cause could be the micro switch on the water dispenser lever, once you have checked the valves and the keypad, (again if equipped) and know they are working, move the dispenser lever and if you still have no water, the problem is the micro switch

Speak out for your right to repair.

New York,

New Yorkers stand up for what they believe in. And we're asking you to stand up for repair.

This year, New York could be the first state in the nation to pass the Fair Repair Act, A8192 and S618. We have a chance to guarantee our right to repair electronic equipment—like smartphones, computers, and even farm equipment. We have a chance to protect local repair jobs—the corner mom-and-pop repair shops that keep getting squeezed out by manufacturers.

It’s not going to be easy. Manufacturers are standing in the way. When your stuff breaks, they want to be the only people allowed to fix it. So far, they’ve managed to stop Fair Repair legislation before your representatives get a chance to vote on it. We’ve got to be louder than their lobbyists.

The Fair Repair Act, known as A8192 and S618, requires manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair...

We bought four (4) Samsung kitchen appliances during our kitchen remodel 2.5 years ago also because of the features and good looks but WE'VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH ALL FOUR appliances (fridge ice, microwave buttons don't work, dishwasher doesn't clean and the oven keeps randomly throwing errors). And I couldn't believe it but my friend was over tonight watching the Seahawks beat the Lions and he told me they had major issues with both his Samsung washer and dryer that cost him big bucks to repair. So 6 out of 6 Samsung appliances have had issues - it's crazy. Anyway...

Our RF261BEAEBC/AA fridge (same as yours) began having ice problems right away - ice dispencing took forever and the cubes came out chunky and half crushed and super, super frosty (not good for crunching). Super lame. We called customer service and they said it was the ice bucket so they sent a replacement, but that didn't fix it. We called them again. They came out and, again, replaced the ice...

Note: Takuan’s post (which was originally published last night) is to remain at the top for a while, so I made it “sticky”. However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that.
