I have a Samsung French Door fridge (Model RFG297HDRS/XAA) that decided to make a puddle in the kitchen this morning. The water was coming from the ice maker.
I couldn't get to the water shut off quickly enough as it's really wedged in the spot it lives so I cycled power to the fridge instead. This seems to have fixed the issue (temporarily). It's happily making ice right now . . . waiting for me to lower my guard and to then proceed to flood my kitchen. At least.
We have hard-ish water here so I'm thinking there was a valve stuck open. The unit is just over 5 years since install (service plan ran out in January, of course).
I am not using a water filter in the unit, fwiw, nor a water softener in the home.
Advice and suggestions on the fix appreciated. I'm expecting I'll need to replace some assembly that contains a valve, just a hunch.
I'm fairly handy but appreciate diagrams, pics, etc.
Oh, and if there's a part I can test, I'd love to do that before sinking $$$ into "maybe".
