Sliding Fridge Out?

Need to pull fridge to get to the back. Ice maker freeze up prob. I have a 2016 Aspire RBQ. My question is, can I pull the fridge out w/o removing any top or bottom trim. Looks like I can but it would will be really close. I'll have a Samsung tech. with me when I do pull it.

I recall a post where I think they said they did remove it w/o removing trim and they built a platform for the fridge to slide out on. I can't find the post. I know it all varies by model and floor plan.If I need to remove bottom trim, is it just glued on the ends and could I just pry it loose?*Dam these Samsung's.

Thanks.

I can't help with pulling out the fridge but on my 2014 Anthem side by side Samsung Refrigerator the ice maker quit working.
After calling for repair I decided to take of the bottom bar, looked in there and some dog hair and dust. Cleaned it out well and all of sudden it started making ice again.
Just a suggestion if your fridge is a side by side.

Thanks and a good point. When I first bought an RV with the residential fridge I had thoughts regarding how confined they were. I was aware that correct fridge operation required proper ventilation as to side, top and rear clearance. I kinda dismissed it thinking they, builders, know what there doing.

Mine makes ice, too much ice, in my case. I need to know how to pull out the fridge with the least amount of disruption to the beautiful trim. I'm not a carpenter. Thanks, I made an edit to my post.

There is one part of the Ice maker correction that requires pulling the refrigerator out an repositioning the water feed tube of the ice maker from the back of the refrigerator. The tube is typically Installed pushed too far in causing water to periodically splash pouring in the tray. I completed the Ice maker replacement process without that last step. Is a perfect resolution replacing the previous ice maker with the corrected design?; No. It works and makes plenty of ice, but we do have to empty the bin from time to time and occasionally have water dispensing ice. Maybe I will tackle that last step (one day), but there are plenty of higher priority tasks ahead in line.

Hi Pat:

Iknow little to nothing about refrigerators and refrigerator ice makers. What little I know, however, involves ice makers that either don't make ice (call repairman) or don't do it well enough (poor water to ice maker). But I have never had too much ice which seems like a different problem.

On my big refer at the house and the freezer unit beside it, the amount of ice is regulated by a mechanical plastic bar that is moved up as ice accumulates in the ice bucket. As ice is added, it either pushes that plastic bar up or forward as it accumulates and that plastic bar is what turns the ice making process off (just the filling and the dumping). If you refer is making too much ice, I would think that the shut off mechanism that turns the filling and dumping process off is not working. As I say, I know little about freezers, but are you looking at whatever system there is in there that turns off the water flow and ice making process (which would seem to be mechanical).

Maybe your problem is that the solenoid that turns the water on and off is what you think is the problem and I am sure that that valve/solenoid is located in the back or at the bottom. Actually, now that I think about, the solenoid and valve on my freezer IS located behind the kick panel at the bottom of the freezer and accessible from the front without removing the freezer from its compartment.

And just a reminder, the registration for Quartzsite is open now and it would be nice to have you and Denise back in attendance. We are going to have some interesting presenters and sessions... things have expanded a lot since you were there last and we are also much bigger than we used to be (63 coaches last year), which is both good and bad, but still an excellent time.

Gary

There was an active thread early last month (Access to rear of Fridge, 2017 44B model) that included a post (#9) from iRV2 member voltdoc that included this link: https://photos.app.goo.gl/r7H9QdCSe4DY9Cez8 that shows how he was able to remove his refrigerator.

Good luck.

Take care,
Stu

I am not sure if your frig is the same or not. Mine is currently out, Open the doors, unscrew the five screws in the metal plate above the door. Next remove the two screws in the bottom plastic kick plate. Lift the frig a little and it will come right out. Keep an eye on the top metal bracket as not to damage your trim.

OP here. Hope this might help someone sometime.

Thanks all for your suggestions and help with sliding the fridge out. On our 2016 RBQ the fridge is enclosed in the kitchen slide out cabinet and is apx 3" above the floor. It's a tight fit with apx. 1/8" inch at top and I think this would have prevented tilting the fridge to remove it w/o removing permanent cabinet trim at the top.

I decided to build a ramp to just1/8" below the top of the bottom trim which which was 1/8" above bottom of the rollers. Lifted fridge 1/8" over bottom trim and slid it out. Three brackets, one top and two bottom and no trim removal. Worked really well. Proved my Pack Rat theory regarding saving scrap lumber.

Replaced Ice maker with the latest model which required a new updated Ctl. board. New auger, recauked, 2nd time, feed hose moved back to correct distance, etc,etc.

Tech. said everything is at latest and greatest levels and all adjustments good. When I asked if it was finally fixed he said," should be, we'll see." Ice maker, $79, board $120, misc. parts and labor for total of $420.

Made it thru one night.

Pat
