Samsung RFG297HDRS Blocked water line?
« on: June 04, 2014, 08:00:23 AM »

My ice maker stopped making ice, i thought it was the unit so i removed it. Prior to just buying a new one i wanted to test the unit i had. My parents have the same frig so i plugged it into their frig and pushed the restart. It made ice. not the problem.

I believe the water line is blocked but i can get a schematic for the water lines to see if i can find a way to clear it. The water on the front works fine and i've tried resetting it with out any filter in the frig. I also tried pushing air through with my compressor. I reassembled everything last night and it sounds like air is trying to move through the lines but i still cant hear the water going into the top of the maker like i could when i plugged it into my parents.

To clear up this is the unit that only has one ice maker in the top of the frig unit.

Any help would be great i'm stumped and Samsung wants over 200 to have a tech come out and look at it.  :thanks:

look in the troubleshooting section. I would personally look for kinks and blockage. try blowing air through the tubing.
