This happens occasionally, I usually pull out the ice bucket and re-insurt and it starts producing.

This time it won't start, it's been two days.

I can't find the reset button.

model RF263BEAESR

 

Thanks

My friends family bought a brand new Samsung fridge. After having 2 ice makers replaced and still having the same freezing up problems they went to the store they bought it from and spoke to manager of store explaining everything they had been through.  They were able to exchange the samsung for a Whirlpool of their choice (special order with upgrades and everything).  They are very pleased with this fridge and will never do Samsung again.  They should stick with TVs tablets and phones.

Which store did they purchase it from?  I'm guessing not one of the big box stores (Lowe's or Home Depot)?

We continue to have the issue with our refrigerator, just two nights ago it stopped making ice, had to grab the hair dryer to get it going again.  Our daughter is buying a new home, should be in it in a couple of months and she is starting to purchase appliances.  As you have guessed, she liked the Samsung but not the issues so she will be picking another brand for her purchase.  I was hoping with all these people complaining the company would address the issue and fix these things but I guess losing market share is not important to them.  I won't buy another Samsung anything...

Its funny, I have told everyone to stay away from Samsung. My office has 4 of these stainless fridges that are turning a year old and I warned them, I am just waiting for these to start failing. We have 1 of 4 ice makers dead already... HaHa

All,

 

My wife and I complained profusely to Samsung about our ice maker problems and they DID finanally agree to pay for a service tech (unafilliated with Samsung, but an authorized service Co) to diagnose our isse AND they DID pay for the repair.  Here's what they did:

 

  1. Replaced Augur motor fan case
  2. Silicone the gaps that existing letting in warm air.

It's been almost 4 weeks and this has helped solve the problem significantly

 

Also, for what it's worth, if you purchase a product such as an applicance using a major credit card, MOST provide a FREE extended warranty benefit for an additional one year after the orignal manufacturer's warranty expires.  Since many of these Samsung icemaker problems seem to be ocurring just after the 1 year point, the free extended warranty from your credit card could prove to be very helpful.  Call your CC company to find out their details.  It's a nice, not-widely-known service benefit!

Hello,
Checking to see if your service of the fan case and Silicone the gap is still working or do you still have freeze ups?
