Hello everyone,  I've got a Samsung refrigerator with freezer on the bottom & french doors on top.  When I press a glass onto the dispenser to get ice cubes I get water.  When I press to get water, I get water.  The Icemaker bin is full of ice cubes but it will not dispense them.  (I get water instead) The model no. is RF4287HARS  & the serial no. is 102043CB508907X.  This unit is about 2 years old.  If anyone has ever ran into this problem, please let me know what you think the problem could be.  Thank You, Tom

I checked back with the owner and the model no. is: RF4287HARS/XAA.  I just forgot to get the /Xaa at the end if that changes anything.  I have not gone out to his house yet, as I was hoping to get some idea of what could be wrong before I go out.  Or what to check out when I get there.  Thanks Again!

I can't find a breakdown of you model. However I think your assembly for that comes as one piece. I believe you need the dispenser assembly. We do not have it listed,Marcone may be able to find it for you.Hope that helps.

I am having the same problem as stated above (unit is dispensing water instead of ice when the ice lever is depressed).
The French door refrigerator is about 2 years old.
Model - RF4287HARS       
Serial # - 6966L

Any assistance with resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Sorry, I do not understand your reply. The problem started this morning. Up to today, there haven't been any problems with the ice dispenser.

Rf4287 uses a TWO paddle dispenser. What is happening is the ICE padlle (Smaller,front) is NOT being activated, so you push a tad harder and the water paddle is depressed....  O0 O0
