Question about Samsung RSG257AARS (241 cu ft) Side by Side Refrigerator
Need to replace ice chute flap but can not locate instructions on how to remove the ice/water dispenser display panel.
Firstly, unplug your refrigerator unit. There is a small phillips-head screw up underneath the display panel. Remove this screw, and then gently grab underneath on both sides of the panel. Pull out toward yourself gently and it should pop out. The ice dispenser should have a few more screws to be removed. Once these are removed, the ice door assembly (because it is an assembly, motor and all) should easily be removable. Make sure you look for and disconnect the electrical connectors of these pieces before attempting to remove them from the unit.

SOUNDS TO ME THE TRANSPORT AUGER MOTOR NEEDS REPLACEMENT. JUST MAKE SURE THAT ON THE CONTROL PANEL, THE CHILD INTERLOCK IS NOT ON WHICH STOPS ICE DISPENSING OPERATION. JUST DONE ONE NOW WITH THE EXACT FAULT.

Unless the old one actually broke, you can re-install it if it merely fell off. Use a mirror and a flashlight to see the hole on the side toward you so that you can re-insert the lever that goes towards the front, then re-insert the lever into the back hole. If the lever actually broke, the new lever will come with directions on how to install it.

Pour about 1/2 cup of water into ice maker . If it dumps , replace the water valve . If doesn't dump , replace the ice maker . Also make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , etc...

The icemaker relies on the motor to twist the ice tray about 120 degrees or so the dump the ice out of the tray. In order to get the ice to separate from the tray the force of the motor actually torques the tray against the rear plastic support (much like you would twist an old fashioned ice tray that you fill up by hand). Anyway, this puts a lot of force on the plastic elements that support the tray and they break after time. Once the plastic support breaks in the back there is nothing to get the ice out of the tray and each subsequent filling of the ice tray results in water spilling all over the ice bin and eventually leaking out the front of the refrigerator. You can order the part and fix it yourself (the part is DA61-00244A and is available from a number of websites. Total cost about $16 with shipping.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be a microswitch under the lever used to activate it. The microswitch fell from the original position so it wasn't turning on anything. I tried gluing into position but the fumes from the crazy glue messed up the switch and I had to replace the whole rig.
The part is under the control display. You can pry it open from the left side.
