Hello,

On our Samsung RF267ABRS fridge, the lights under the ice maker will turn on & off (A in pic) followed by the audible chime (B in pic) and this occurs all through the day. I checked make sure all the doors are sealed correctly, tried resetting the fridge and unplugging the fridge couple of minutes. No luck.

Would anyone know what the issue could be and how to correct it?

Thank you

Ok thank you. So only option is to live with the sound or replace the entire unit?

I was able to find this part on another site. How likely is it, that this is the fix?

Fairly likely, that's usually caused by a short in it.

Also check your door switch, hold the door switch in and see if it still does it, and when the door switch is pressed in, make sure the light inside the freezer goes off too.

Wait,

I believe this model uses a reed switch as the door switch for the left side door.

Here's the reed switch:
DA34-00043B Switc


Use a magnet on it to see if the light turns off and dispenser problems stop,
