I have a Samsung RF266AB refridgerator. The ice maker tray

Customer Question

I have a Samsung RF266AB refridgerator. The ice maker tray overfills and forms a block of ice. I think it is overfilling. I have found a plastic part in the ice drawer. The sensor hangs down. I need to know how to rethread the sensor tube. Need a schematic or instructions.

Hi, this is Michael, Your icemaker has a spring-loaded screw that is on the front of the head that sits horizontally. You will see a + and - sign above it, with a thin piece of metal that the screw goes through. Turn the screw until the thin piece of metal is in the - zone more. You may have to adjust it a few times

No screw. This is a side by side model with the bottom freezer. I can't see a screw. The ref is only 4 mos old. The icemaker worked fine until the pull out drawer was stuck. I think a plastic clip that holds up the ice sensor has been popped off but I can't see how to reattach it. Is there an installation diagram or instructions for the icemaker? I think the model might be DA59
