SOURCE: My subZero Model 245 Icemaker stopped making ice

Ice maker, I don't know where you can find the manual but I'll give you a few ideas of what to look for. First make sure that the inlet tube is not frozen over. Next, look at the center gear on the module and see if the clips in the center are not broken. If so you will have to replace the module. The ejector blades should be at the 2:00 position when home. If you get a jumper wire and jump T to H, this will by pass the bi-metal and run a cycle. The ice maker should fill at around the 12:00 position. Test points L & N will verify if you have 120v to the ice-maker. Test points L & H will test the resistance of the heater, 72 ohms. plus or minus 10%. Hope this gets you going, Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: No ice from icemaker of Kenmore Elite model 106

I just resolved an issue with my kenmore elite side by side refrigerator icemaker (model 106).
It was expensive because I took the long road to fixing the unit myself.

My problem: No water going up to the freezer water dispenser into the icemaker but the water in front of the door working just fine.

-first thing i tried was the simplest. The Internet is clogged with this miracle fix of using a hair dryer to melt the frozen water line going to the dispenser output. This is highly unlikely for our model since the water line is protected within the refrigerator frame.

-2nd thing I replaced my water filter (thinking that there wasn't enough water pressure to trigger the solenoid valve. $40, and still no luck.

-3rd thing was I tested for voltage going to the solenoid. No voltage going to solenoid, so I wasted $30 for a new solenoid.....still no water.

-4th thing was I ordered a new IR sensor and receiver (since the reciever end is where the relay that sends the voltage to the solenoid to turn on and allow water to go up to the dispenser).
My IR sender and receiver appeared to be working flakey.
Installed, still no water. $58 BUCKS ON EBAY (EVERYWHERE ELSE $100+)

-I finally removed the freezer front little white door, I TURNED OFF THE FREEZER SWITCH SO NO VOLTAGE WAS PRESENT, removed the release latch underneath the freezer unit and disconnected, and removed the freezer unit to inspect it further.
When I removed the protective white cover that covers the mechanical wheel, I had a few parts come flying out of it. Turns out that the wheel accessories were damaged. THERE ARE NO REPAIRABLE PARTS ON THE FREEZER UNIT. I FOUND ONE ON EBAY FOR $39 BUCKS + $9 SHIPPING! $48 BUCKS, SWAPPED THE HARNESS AND BOTTOM COVER, AND IN 20 MINUTES, I WAS BACK IN BUSINESS. STARTED MAKING ICE IN ABOUT A HALF HOUR!!!!!

when in doubt, replace the freezer unit for $48 bucks! 7 out of 10 times it will fix your problems. All techs replace the IR set at the same time too which will set you back another $58 bucks.
Good luck! ;)

SOURCE: Icemaker won't fill tray,

Was the inlet tube frozen. If so your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking and when the water reaches the freezer it freezes, blocking the inlet tube. Replace the water inlet valve.
You can Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

I am sorry there is no replacement parts for this icemaker. You will need to replace Icemaker. Call sears if less that 1yr old. I have seen this icemaker go after only 14 months. I hope this helps

Icemaker is not working properly. It will only make ice after the reset button is pushed.


If the ice room is not getting/staying cold enough, the unit will not harvest the ice and proceed through the cycle... First step in troubleshooting is to determine if the compartment the icemaker sits in is cold enough, if it is, then you have to test the ice room temp. sensor to see if it is not sending the correct temp signal to the main board. These icemakers are modular and pretty much have to be replaced completely if the temperatures and sensor check OK. Samsung Refrigerator Temperature Sensor DA32 10104N

I have just purchased a Samsung 636L Refrigerator and my icemaker doesn't seem to work. Help please.


Hello Roseanna;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
I require the complete model number to see what you have. The model number is on the wall in the fresh food (refrigerator section)
First, if you have just purchased this unit is it is under warrantee, where a service technician will come to your home at no charge and fix the problem.
I am going to take a guess, having serviced Samsung refrigerators for years, the type icemaker that you have. I believe you may have a ice maker in a small compartment.
Usually a ice maker will start after the temperature is above 40 degrees F. If this is the ice maker I think it is; in the front of the ice maker, on the bottom, there is a small red square button. This is the ice maker cycle button.
Push the cycle button and listen to hear the water fill the icemaker. Hopefully, the installers had just never done this.
Do you have a water dispenser? Is the water dispensing?
If you do not have a water dispenser, then perhaps the installers either did not connect the water line nor turned the water valve to open.
If the ice maker does not cycle, and the water supply is open, chances are you have a bad ice maker.
I have gone on service calls where the unit was delivered one day and I am there the every next day. On these service call I have found bad compressors, bad control boards, and yes - bad ice makers.

My 7-button Frigidaire Gallery ice/water module is not lighting up and not functioning. No ice or water is being dispensed. Wiring harnesses seem to be all intact.


Hi

If freezer door switch is not working, dispenser won't work. Does the freezer light go off & on when door is opened & closed? If you have a voltmeter, check that water valve is getting 120 volts when dispenser is pushed in. If no voltage, I would suspect the micro-switch that you hear clicking when you push in with a glass. Even though it clicks, the contacts could still be bad in it. However other than that loose/off wire, ribbon cable for front buttons off/loose, bad board, child lock are something that can make the dispenser dead.

Have a samsung rfg297aars approx a year and half old. Has never made enough ice and has recently stopped making ice at all. i have change the filter and performed the factory reset. Any advice? i can't...


Samsung has quite a high failure/problem rate among their products. Ice makers are no exception.

Sometimes,but not often, a reboot of the appliance will solve the issue. This is done simply by unplugging/ or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes and then turning back on again.

Remove the bucket and shine a light up in there to see if anything might be jammed. Remove as necessary.

There is a button toward the front, top, right side of this icemaker. it looks like a clear piece of rubber but will push in with your finger. Light pressure is usually enough.

This will manually force the icemaker into a cycle so watch it/listen and see if something happens. If it does not, then replace the icemaker (yes they go bad after just a year and a half)

part# I found is DA97-05422A but you may want to check with the parts store as Samsung changes part numbers often!

My Samsung French-door frig had the same problem - try resetting ice maker - red button on the side of the ice maker. If that doesn't work call Samsung service - I had a bad circuit board which needed to be replaced by local Samsung repair service.

My samsung model #RS2578BB AUTOMATIC ICE MAKER IS NOT MAKING ICE PLS ADVISE


TOOLS NEEDED:
Eyes (fair to good shape)
#2 phillips screw driver
Flashlight

Lets assume it was working at one time right? And the FREEZER temp is BELOW 20degs

REMOVE storage bin to see icemaker.

LOCATE test button on underside or rightside of clear motor asembly.
(should be black)

Press until icemaker starts, then release button. Watch the tray twist and return to upright the should fill with water.

If icemaker worked: ICE SENSOR MAYBE BAD> ORDER NEW ICEMAKER IF THE ICE DOES NOT EJECT AFTER 4

If icemaker did not Start by pressing the test button.: UNPLUG the frig or go the Main Service Panel to the house (BREAKER BOX) and shut off the power and verify NO LIGHTS INSIDE THE FRIG>

Remove the concealed screws holding the icemaker to the ceiling.

PULL the icemaker forward to release icemaker. Using the Flashlight
LOCATE the wiring harness on the ceiling. Look for the RELEASE and Squeeze and pull down. Inspect the electrical pins to make sure all pins are equal and secured. If all is well there?
THE PROBLEM COULD BE either: ICEMAKER or Main PC Board

I would order a Icemaker assembly first since it is the least expensive.

Good Luck and Cheers!
