  1. Great post… but what is the part number / where or how can I get the clip ?

  2. I have a Samsung RFG298HDRS and also need the drain clip. I have contacted Sears parts but they won’t sell me just the drain clip or the person I talked with couldn’;t find it.Do you have a part # and where I could order this part ? There has been water/ice building up under my deli drawer for a couple of months now. I called Samsung but they want to service it for $$$. ANy help would be greatly appreciated.


  3. Fantastic Post! I have done all of these steps except put a new drain clip.

    The hole was frozen shut, so I melted the ice so the water can drain. 2 weeks later its frozen again.

    Do you have the part number for the drain clip?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi, thanks for taking the time to comment. Glad the post was helpful. You need to replace the drain clip to fix this issue for sure.

      Did you get the part number? If not post back and I can dig it up.


  4. Hi, i will look into the clip as well but I have an error or the (4) r-fan error. Could you explain this further how to diagnose or test. Thanks

  5. I am having the same problem with water dripping into my Samsung Model RF217ABBP refrigerator. Was a part # for the drain clip ever posted? Thanks

  6. Hello, before I pull the frig apart, I would lie to order the new clip. I went through the manual but no parts were listed. My model is RF197AB.

    Could you provide the new clip part number, so I can order it.

    Thank you in advance,
    Linda Delaney

  7. did samsung ever address this in new models? i have a 5 year old model that i am about to replace and wonder if its still an issue.

  8. Having the same issues!!! Very helpful information but I also need the part number for the clip.
    Model RF197ACRS

  9. Also need a part number for this clip. I was told today that I had to order a $285 “kit” from Samsung. (part number 4129169934). Looks like this clip is all I need.


    • Hi, the defrost drain clip part number is on the front page. I have also made the number linkable. It will take you to a parts house where you can buy it.



  11. Thank you for the thread, and advice.

    You gave something to me, so I wanted to post something back.

    Here is one hack: The reason that a user in the thread had problems removing the manifold from the rear of the fridge after he had removed the screw is because the styrofoam was frozen into the blades and cooling coils 🙂

    • You’re most welcome. Happy to help. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it.


    • Hi Paul. I have ordered the drain clip and am waiting on it to arrive before I do anything to stop the leakage. I have to admit I am a little afraid to remove this panel after reading how someone had to break it to remove it. So how did you get yours off?

  12. I’ve been researching this problem with my Samsung FD refrigerator (model #RF217ACPN) and was all set to order the new defrost drain clip from your link above and when I arrived at the site, it prompted me to put in my model number to check compatibility, and when I did, it said the part was not compatible with my fridge. I searched for a comparable part that was and did not find anything. Should I assume it said this because this part is not the “stock” option for my fridge? Have you run into this before?

    Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.


  13. You are the best! Worked like a charm. Piece of cake

  14. Hi just wanted to let you no that mine doesn,t have a clip at all and was iced to the top of the radiator looking thing,looks a little different then the one you showed,it kinda has two lines running across the bottom but they look all aluminum,
