I went through enormous, prolonged hassles with the icemaker issue with this fridge... and now have to deal with the rear panel icing up problem.... ALL KNOWN ISSUES.The solution (at least for the icing up) is for Samsung to make a replacement part with a LONGER THIN PIECE OF METAL that sticks down into the defroster/coils drain hold. The factory part barely extends down into the hole 1/8 inch. I did my own repair today (removing all the food, shutting down, hairdryer melting ice, etc, etc.) by twisting a 14 guage copper wire around both sides of the bottom of the evaporator heater and down into the hold about 5". Another design flaw: This hole doesn't go straight down.... it flattens out and takes a left turn, allowing a slanted shelf for water to sit and refreeze--which eventually turns into an ice plug, which THEN causes the coils to ice over, block the fan and your food to get warm. Another 5 hours of my time!!! The icemaker? Well, I've put about $500 into repairs (Samsung so-called "repair" men tell us that Samsung REQUIRES customers to do EACH OF THE SIX REPAIRS before even considering that something MIGHT be wrong with the lemons they sold us. These are all KNOWN ISSUES with REPAIR BULLETINS dating back for years! Samsung.... BUY OUR FRIDGES BACK!!! Remove them from showrooms! (Every time I see someone at Lowes or Home Depot looking at one, I walk up and warn them!)

Is there a switch that needs to be engaged when the icemaker in my RF23HCEDBSR slides back into position? If there is ice build-up, will I be able to see it... or might ice be built-up in a spot that I can't see? My main problem is that suddenly (and a couple months after the end of warranty) the ice make has been dripping water... and the ice cubes have a slushy surface texture... like they are not being frozen correctly. I've turned down the temp to -8 and checked the freezer drawer to make sure nothing is blocking what appears to be holes to a duct that goes up to the ice maker? Can anything else cause water dripping from the ice tray down and out the chute?
