Question

Ice on the back wall behind the ice maker

There appears to be ice on the near on of the holes where the ice maker is. The fan was also making a louder than normal noise. I turned the freezer down to see if this helps, just wondering if having it set to high could cause this issue.

Question

Can you change the volume of the tone/alarm?

Hello,

We've recently purchased the RS261MDPN side-by-side refrigerator. So far, we love the thing! However, I'd like to increase the volume of the console tone and the door alarm since it is quite soft and is hardly heard when the kids are around. How can I increase its volume?

Thank you,

The water from the water dispenser has not been cold since we first hooked up the refrigerator. We had another refrigerator before this one and the water was cold. We connected it using the same line as our old one and the water is not cold.

Why is there frost on ice path of dispense inside freezer door and on ice bucket?

This is on a brand new fridge, I've checked that the gasket on the freezer door and it looks fine. I've checked the flap on the ice dispenser in the door and it looks like it's flush, no debris there. Not sure why, but I'm getting frost around both openings.

Why is there frost on/in the opening between the ice maker and the water/ice dispenser?

This fridge has been plugged in for 1 and 1/2 days. It was installed by Lowes deliverers. If this frost is a problem, should I be having problems already? I did purchase extended warranty on this product.

Thank you for contacting Samsung.

According to our resident home appliance specialist, this unit automatically defrosts. He indicates that if ice/frost is building up on the freezer walls, warm air is getting into the unit. He recommends you review the following support article to make sure air is not coming in via the ice chute.

http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=411551&modelname=RS261MDRS

Also, warm air can get into the freezer if the door is propped open for extended periods.

Question

Severe time delay between light for water to go to light for ice

This refrigerator was installed 3 days ago.
If I press the water button, I can get it to light only after a LONG period of time and many depressions. Then if I want ice cubes, pressing the control button for cubes will only come on again after a LONG period of time and many depressions ... I've NOT been able to get the crushed ice light to operate -- nor do I get any crushed ice into my glass.
The lock is NOT on ... the ice bucket has ice, the water line was hooked up by the installer and I believe is just fine -- nothing in your USER MANUAL mentions any sort of a delay in getting to your choice.

What is the secret to getting it to operate in a couple seconds instead of half a minute to a minute ... and sometimes not at all???

How many amps will this refrigerator draw on start-up. Can I use a generator or power inverter in an emergency?

The RS261MDWP is rated for AC115V 60Hz and 11.6 amps. While I can't tell you the draw during particular cycles, I can tell you that Samsung refrigerators draw between 0.8 and 4.3 amps depending on exactly what cycle is active.

Samsung does not have an official recommendation with regard to the use of back-up power supplies like generators or inverters. It may help to consult with your power company or an electrician for assistance selecting one that's rated appropriately.
