Samsung RF217AB Ice Maker White Wire w/ Sensor

I have a Samsung french door refrigerator, model rf217ab. There is a white wire (about 6 inches long) that is hanging from the ice maker (located in the pull out drawer freezer). The wire appears to have a sensor on the end of it. I also found two pieces (one foam and the other plastic) that I believe house this sensor. Assuming that it can be reattached, where does it go? If it cannot be reattached, will I have to replace the entire ice maker assembly or just a specific part?
Thanks!

The part number alone, that you gave me, was enough help to quickly search for an accurate picture of my actual ice maker.

Thanks! That took care of it. I knew it would be a simple fix, I just couldn't find exactly where the piece went...

I'm sorry you are having this problem with your icemaker. What you see is the sensor that activates the icemaker. It will mount under the tray and the foam and plastic piece hold the sensor in place. The foam will fit inside the plastic piece and there should be a couple of tabs on the tray, where this plastic piece attaches and holds the sensor up against the tray. If it cannot be reattached, the complete icemaker # DA97-05037C will need to be replaced. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
