Samsung Refrigerator (RS267TDWP) icemaker quit working.
Phillip's head screwdriver, 2 lg flat blade screwdrivers (for prying) and one small flat blade screwdriver (for uncoupling electrical plug)
Repair & Advice
Icemaker was the suspected culprit since the door water dispenser was still working fine. Note that there is a good YouTube video on replacing this exact icemaker (www.youtube.com/watch?v=vj-Xl3rkypw). Several additional points may be helpful: * Turn off the icemaker on the front panel. No need to turn off the refrigerator or water supply. * Once the ice bucket, cover, 3 icemaker retaining screws and 4 panel screws are removed, the panel is not necessarily easily pulled off the door. It took two flat blade screwdrivers working together on the upper left side of the panel edge to finally pop that side loose. If you have plastic pry tools, they may be preferable, since a bit of scarring occurred with the steel screwdrivers. * Finally, disconnecting the electrical plug was difficult until a small screwdriver was inserted into the flat plastic retaining prong on the icemake plug. Note that this repair job is very easy, if you have done it once. However, without the video, getting to the electrical plug behind the panel is not obvious.
