ice maker no longer operates correctly

First Poster

I have a Samsung rs261mdwp side-by-side fridge.  Recently, the ice cub tray cracked & needed to be replaced. Seemed like a simple fix so I bought a new one & installed as needed. However, it no longer is producing ice automatically. I can hold down the test button and it will rotate a filled ice tray, dispense, return and then fill with water (to then freeze over time). However, it will no longer go through the full automatic process of making ice. Basically, I have to manually hold the "test" button again. 


Do I possibly need a new ice sensor? If so, what is the part number and where can I find it to order one?

Hi @mfranch87. :robothappy:


I did a search on that model, and it looks to be a US one. Have you checked out the 'Ice' troubleshooting guide for it on the US Samsung website here?
