Bad ice maker and temp control
after three years ice maker began to malfunction. overfills then stops making ice then ice it melts and refreeze at the bottom of the compartment and bottom of the fridge. i empty the ice twice a day to keep it running and cold enough to not melt ice or i have to shut it off. shut off sometimes it takes multiple resets, which can only be done once a day to get it running again. so shuting off can mean no ice for several days. i also have to defrost or chip away at ice chunks in the compartment about every other week. the maintenance i have to di is ridiculous. i also bought a samsung dishwasher at the same time. it stsrted to leak after just over a year so i have to place a boot mat under the front of it everytime i run it. samsung tvs and phones are great, the appliances are horrible

    Years of hassle!
    about 2 years into having the refrigerator our ice maker started freezing over. we would defrost using tips found on internet only to find this temporary solution work for a few weeks at a time. we even found they had published about new parts made to fix this problem permanently. we bought the part just for it work for a little while and then back to normal issues again. ice even built up behind the inner back wall panel of the refrigerator. we had to remove all the food to take it off and defrost. we see the ice building up again. we haven't used our ice maker in almost a year and i just tried removing the tray and now it's stuck. can't remove it and can't get back in all the way. this is ridiculous and an evident defect in this model.

        i bought this fridge about 2 years ago and hadn't had any problems until recently. it started making weird mechanical noises and now the ice maker often freezes to the point that it doesn't create more ice cubes....typically i've been able to manually remove all the ice. however, today i wasn't even able to because of how much it accumulated. picture attached after trying to remove everything.

          Quality Issues
          this is the worst icemaker on the planet. constantly frosts over and into the bin. have tried various methods of sealing the unit since warmer air is clearly getting in. i removed the bin and sealed the opening to watch the frost grow. **please see photo**

            Ice Maker Constantly Freezes Up
            the icemaker continually ices up. this creates a wedge of frozen cubes which prevents the ice from falling into the dispenser and consequently making more ice. i regularly have to use a knife to break up the ice jam. am now resorting to manually defrosting the unit with a blow-dryer.
              Reliability is HORRIBLE!
              My ice maker froze up a little after 1 year. Defrosted the ice maker a number of times until it totally quit working. The coils in the back of the inside completely iced over after about 2 years. Defrosted a number of times (total pain in the a&&) and now the fridge cannot get over 46 degrees even though I have set it between 34-40 degrees F. The last time I thawed it out it only took 2 weeks before I saw ice developing on the back wall coils again. Stuff now spoils quickly and I will probably be buying a new one and this current fridge is only 4 years old!!! Stay away from Samsung. Their customer service people would not help me other than call someone to come out. Go to youtube and look. There are sooo many people showing how to thaw the fridge and ice maker out. It is comical. So many people who had technicians out who couldn't fix it but still charged them. Do you reseach.

                Horrible ice dispenser
                the ice maker has been serviced or repaired 4-5 times in the 3 years we have owned it. it used to freeze up and no ice. then there was a recall and the part finally fix it. now it leaks inside the fridge and each time you get ice. so furious with it!

                  Spent a small fortune on this unit. Worked fine for only a few months. Then it started. We are on the third ice make and it quit months ago. The drain freezes in the refrigerator section. We live with constant towels soaking up the drain water. This unit reminds me of the Pontiac Fiero “looks good, won’t run”. Do not buy a Samsung refrigerator. You will be sorry if you do.

                    Ice ice
                    The fridge freezes up slowly, and I have to take the back panel off and defrost it. First time took 2 years, then maybe a year. Then months, now I defrosted it 2 weeks ago and it's keeping a constant 46° in the fridge, with a nice vibrating sound of the fan spinning and hitting ice. Thanks Samsung, and home depot for helping out.
