I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. If you're unable to dispense crushed ice or water, and can only select cubed ice, your refrigerator may require service. Please call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to help you determine whether service will be necessary.

I'm sorry to hear the icemaker in your RF26VABBP is not functioning properly. The icemaker should produce approximately 100 cubes per day under ideal conditions, and production may vary depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other factors. If yours is making less than this, there are several things that could be contributing. I would suggest checking the following:
- The recommended temperatures for the refrigerator and freezer compartments are 38°F and -2°F, respectively. If the freezer temperature is set higher than this, it could effect ice production, and if the refrigerator is set much lower, it could cause the water lines to freeze which could cut off the water supply to the icemaker.
- Is the icemaker turned off? If so, press the "Ice Off" button on the control panel to turn the icemaker back on.
- Is the feeler arm that hangs under the icemaker stuck in the "up" position? The icemaker will not produce ice if it "thinks" the bin is full.
- Have you tried pressing the icemaker Test button, as shown on page 25 of the User Manual?
- Has the filter cartridge been changed recently? If not, it may be clogged or partially clogged and needs to be replaced. If it has, there may be air in the lines. You should bleed the air from the lines by dispensing 3-6 gallons of water.
- Is the water valve turned on all the way, and the are there any bends or kinks in the line that could be obstructing the water flow?
- The Power Freeze feature can help increase ice production by running the compressor for an extended period of time.

I hope these suggestions help to increase your ice production.

I'm not sure why you would heat the icemaker with a blowdryer to try to get it to make ice, but pressing the Test button on the side of the icemaker to reset it is a good idea. If the ice tray is not filling with water, please make sure the water valve to the refrigerator is turned on and the lines are not bent or kinked; your home's water pressure should be at 20-125 psi for the icemaker to work. Make sure the icemaker is turned on and the refrigerator temperature is set to the recommended 38°F; if the fridge is too cold the water line could freeze. If you recently replaced the water filter, be sure to dispense 5-6 gallons of water to bleed air from the lines. If you have not recently replaced the filter, try removing it temporarily and press the Test button again. If the tray fills with water without a filter installed, the cartridge is either clogged or partially clogged and should be replaced. If after taking the above steps you press the Test button and water still does not flow into the tray, your refrigerator may require service.

If the tray fills with water but does not freeze, try lowering the temperature of the freezer; Samsung recommends setting the freezer temperature to -2°F.

For further troubleshooting assistance or to request service if necessary, please call 800-SAMSUNG to speak to an agent or submit a service request through the following link: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/o...

There are several factors that can effect the ability of an icemaker to produce ice, including water supply, freezer and refrigerator temperatures, and control panel functions. Please check the following to try to resolve the issue:
- Is the water connected, the valve turned on and hoses unkinked and free of obstruction?
- Is your home's water pressure between 20~125 psi? Under normal conditions, a 5.75 oz. glass can be filled in about 10 seconds.
- Is the refrigerator set at the recommended 38°F? If the refrigerator is too cold, the water lines could freeze.
- Is the freezer temperature cold enough? Samsung recommends setting the freezer at -2°F.
- Is the icemaker turned off? Make sure the Ice Off icon is not illuminated on the display.
- Is the feeler arm under the icemaker stuck in the "up" position, which would signal to the icemaker that the bucket is full and to stop making ice.
- Is the control panel locked, which would prevent the dispenser from operating?
- Is the water filter installed properly and locked in place?
- Did you bleed the air from the lines by dispensing 5-6 gallons of water from the dispenser since installing or replacing the filter?
- Did you press the Test button on the icemaker to reset it?

If none of the above suggestions helps to resolve the issue, and the ice tray does not fill with water, try removing the water filter temporarily and press the test button on the icemaker again. If the tray fills without a filter installed, then the cartridge is likely clogged or partially clogged and should be replaced. The filter should be replaced about every 6 months based on average usage, but it could become clogged sooner if there are a lot of impurities in the water supply.

If, after checking each of these suggestions, the icemaker still isn't functioning properly, please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who can assist you.

I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. A small amount of water accumulating under the drawers is normal and is usually caused by condensation. However, if yours is accumulating rapidly enough to be described as "flooding" and running onto the floor, there is probably a leak that will require service to repair. I would suggest turning off the water supply to the refrigerator, then submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.

I'm sorry to hear your RF26VABBP is not dispensing ice. Please try removing the ice bucket and moving the ice around inside to free up any ice jams that may be preventing the auger from turning. When replacing the bucket, make sure it is pushed in all the way and locked in place, then close the refrigerator doors (ice will not dispense if the fridge doors are open). Check the control panel to make sure it is not locked and an ice type is selected. If ice still will not dispense when the lever is pressed, your refrigerator will likely require service.

There are several factors that can effect the ability of your RF26VABBP's icemaker to produce ice, including water supply, freezer and refrigerator temperatures, and control panel functions. It is likely that the clicking noise is caused by the icemaker attempting to draw water unsuccessfully. The following troubleshooting tips address factors effecting the water supply, as well as the dispenser function:
- Is the water connected, the valve turned on and hoses unkinked and free of obstruction?
- Is your home's water pressure between 20~125 psi? Under normal conditions, a 5.75 oz. glass can be filled in about 10 seconds.
- Is the refrigerator set at the recommended 38°F? If the refrigerator is too cold, the water lines could freeze.
- Is the freezer temperature cold enough? Samsung recommends setting the freezer at -2°F.
- Is the icemaker turned on? Make sure the Ice Off icon is not illuminated on the display.
- Is the feeler arm under the icemaker stuck in the "up" position, which would signal to the icemaker that the bucket is full and to stop making ice.
- Is the control panel locked, which would prevent the dispenser from operating?
- Is the water filter installed properly and locked in place?

Question

How can I make the icemaker stop making ice when the bucket is full?

Since new, my ice maker has continued to make ice overfilling the bucket and pushing it out of it's sleeve in the refrigerator, which then causes warmer air to enter the ice maker, freezing cubes together and jamming up the entire unit. The bucket needs to be emptied almost every week because it becomes unusable.

I'm sorry to hear you're having a problem with your RF26VABBP. If the icemaker is not automatically detecting when the bin is full and turning off as needed, check to see if the feeler arm that hangs under the icemaker is stuck in the 'up' position. If it is, and you are unable to move it by applying just a slight amount of pressure (be careful not to force it which could cause it to break), it will likely require service. Please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.

Refrigerator didn't warm up as much, but it did warm up as well. I unplugged the unit, then plugged it back in. It still made the loud noise. I turned off the "Energy Saver" feature, and the noise went away. The refrigerator cooled down quite quickly but the freezer still seems to not be working.

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with your RF26VABBP. The Energy Saver feature controls the low-wattage heater in the strip between the doors to help evaporate condensation when it is very humid, for example, and should not affect the cooling system. If the refrigerator is cooling but the freezer is not, service may be necessary.

The RF26VABBP is designed to produce approximately 5 pounds of ice per day under ideal conditions. Production may vary depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other factors, so if yours is making less than this, I would suggest checking the following:
- The recommended temperatures for the refrigerator and freezer compartments are 38°F and -2°F, respectively. If the freezer temperature is set higher than this, it could effect ice production. If the refrigerator is too cold, the water lines could freeze.
- Is something pressing against the lever that detects when the ice bin is full? The icemaker will not produce ice if it detects a full bin.
- Have you tried pressing the Test button on the side of the icemaker to reset it?
- Have you replaced your water filter recently? A clogged or partially clogged filter can slow water flow and effect ice production. After replacing the filter, be sure to dispense up to 6 gallons of water to bleed air from the lines.
- Is your home's water pressure sufficient? In order for the ice maker to operate properly, water pressure of 20~125 psi is required. Under normal conditions, a 6 oz glass can be filled in about 10 seconds. If the Refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 20psi), you may be able to install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
- The Power Freeze feature can help increase ice production by running the compressor for an extended period of time.

I hope these suggestions help to increase your ice production.

Question

Why is water pooling on the floor next to the feet of the refrigerator?

At various times during the day/night, water pools on the floor next to the feet of the fridge. Also the ice maker is no longer making ice. However, the water dispenser works great. Before the water began pooling and the ice maker stopped working, I had occasionally noticed icy buildup along the door of the freezer. Also, prior to the ice maker stopping, the size of the ice cubes diminished. I suspect that the freezer is overfilled and/or condensation has built up on "coils"? But, consider that the contents of the freezer fluctuate as we empty the fridge as we eat and then restock. I ensure the freezer is closed otherwise it beeps. What are the possible causes and how can I eliminate each? The fridge was moved last year but has functioned properly -,however it has been steadily getting worse over the last 3 months. Could colder water temp from the pipes due to colder weather be effecting it? We live in TX so it's never all that cold. Thanks.
