    Samsung ICE maker leaking Water - Parts needed to DIY repair

    Model Number: RFG297AARS
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    My ICE maker seems to be leaking some water. I have ice under the maker and it freezes. I think the ice maker also seems to be a little slow on making ice. I'm thinking that I need to replace the whole ice maker and my research points me to DA97-05422A. Would there be some other part I should be replacing, like a water value or something related?

    I'm also looking for instructions on how to replace but I'm guessing that they might come with the part when I order it?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Commonly I these ice makers we see that the ice maker fails to eject the ice, and then it fills up with water again and that water leaks underneath the ice maker. The other cause could be a bad water inlet valve that is leaking, but that is not as common. To check, you can remove the ice maker from the refrigerator and see if and water leaks into the ice maker compartment over 24-48 hours. If it does, then the water valve will need to be replaced. Let me know what you find.

    Thanks for the reply. It seems that extra water is coming into the maker with the cubes and freezing them into larger cubes. So maybe this is what you are saying, it's not ejecting and filling with water again and then the next time it might eject and we have these larger mutant ice cubes. So it sounds like DA97-05422A might be my solution.
