How to remove housing cover in front of ice maker

Surface of freezer door has rust which I want to remove and touch up with appliance paint. The rust is under the housing cover in front of the ice maker dispenser. There are no apparent screws so my guess is it simply pops off (then to replace it is snaps back in?). If I break the housing cover, I checked and it seems the part is no longer made. So before I try to pull it off maybe you can tell me how to remove it without breaking it. Thank you!
p,s. exact KitchenAid model side by side refrigerator is ksrs25qxwh11
(model in product field is not correct!)

Why does my ice maker not get cold enough to produce ice? I have a Samsung RFG297HDRS French Door refrigerator. Everything is functioning except for the ice maker. Water is getting into the ice maker


Ok Randy, Lets fix it.

My name is Peter. I am a retired refrigeration field service technician.

You are not getting cooling air to your ice maker freezer compartment. Once again Samsung - bad design - put a ice maker in the fresh food section.

So, you have a ice maker enclosed next to the fresh food section where the recommended temperature setting is 35-40 degrees F.
Where as your recommended freezer temperature is +2/-2 degrees F.

There is a air damper/vent from the bottom freezer in the back of your ice maker housing. Lets remove the ice maker to check for ice build up. On the left hand side of the housing on the wall there is a long narrow cover plate. This is where you connector harness is located. There are 2 screws holding the front end in and a tong and groove tab in the back. Remove the cover plate.

Now, pull the harness out.

Lets remove the ice maker assembly. There are two screws in the front end securing the ice maker to the top of the casing. These screws are recessed. They are either Philips heads or hex heads (1/4"). If they are hex head, he recessed hole diameter is small. Some hex head hand tools will not fit. A screw gun will work or a small outside out side diameter hex head hand tool.

Remove these screws. In the back in each corner is a tong & groove. Pull forward to release the ice maker. Using a small flat head screw driver wedge the wire harness to release. Set the ice maker aside.

Inspect the air vent/damper for ice build up. Use a hair dryer to defrost.

I do not believe you have a automatic damper controlled by a thermistor (temperature sensor). If you do, Remove the damper assembly. Get your multi-meter. Set your meter to the lowest Ohm reading (Omega on your meter) Touch the two probes on your meter together, you meter should read 1.0. Disconnect the 2 motor contacts. On the motor place one probe on one contact and one probe on the other contact. If the meter still reads 1.0 the motor is bad. If the meter reads 0-50 Ohms the motor is good.

If there is no ice buildup & the damper motor checks out, replace the temperature sensor.

You will find getting the wiring back into the side panel will be a little difficult. As usual, Samsung is not service friendly.

The ice box on the ice dispenser appears to be clogged so ice cannot be dispensed on either setting (chunk or crushed). How does one remove the ice box front to look inside?


Hello there,
For you to be able to remove the ice maker from the refrigerator, you will have to get a screwdriver and a work glove, then you follow the steps below:
  1. Pull the LG refrigerator away from the wall and unplug the electrical cord.
  2. Shut off the water supply valve to the ice maker by twisting the knob clockwise. The valve is built into the metal or plastic tube that feeds water to the ice maker at the back of the appliance.
  3. Open the freezer door and remove the ice bucket below the ice maker. Set the bucket in the sink for the ice to melt.
  4. Lift the white plastic housing off the ice maker and set aside.
  5. Remove the screws that connect the ice maker assembly to the inside back of the freezer, using a screwdriver and work gloves to protect your hands.
  6. Push up on the ice maker from below to release the mechanism.
  7. Disconnect the wire plug that connects the ice maker to the back of the freezer and remove the entire assembly.
  8. When you are through with what ever you want to do with the ice maker.
  9. Reconnect the LG refrigerator power cord and slide the appliance back to its original position.

Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

Ice maker control arm has broken and ice machine keeps making ice. How do I stop the icemaker? And, then, how do I fix or replace the control arm (which appears to have snapped at the point that the arm...


Good day,
You will have to remove the ice maker. Usually 2 screws or clips on top and one screw on the bottom, as well as the plug that supplies the electrical power.
Since you'll need a new arm anyway, I would suggest you take the ice maker to any decent sized appliance parts house, and see if they'll pull the the old stub out and install a new control arm.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace the whole ice maker.
If you want to see if you can remove the stub yourself, unsnap the front cover. You'll see a semi-solid state type board. It is held in with 3 screws. Remove those, pull the board off, and inspect the area we are talking about. You might be able to get it out, but if not, go back to my first suggestion.

Rust spots appear on the doors and arount the ice


Hi; Yes I would say its covered under a warranty. Trying to get the manufacture to repair it for free maybe not. Thats a questionable area. I would argue that the painting process had a problem that day. But if no warranty open door and dry off really good then brush with a steel brush to bring up rust then spray or paint on a rust eliminator. After it dries You can call Your local paint store for some appliance epoxy paint. Do a smooth job from the begining and a good flat surface will be ready for Your door gaskets...alpharome416

Rust on outside of freezer door -- is there an epoxy or white coating to cover over the rust?


You can clean off using a green scrubbing bad and some brasso all at wall mart then buy a can of spraypanit and spray it with food grade paint by Krylon paints also at wal mart. The paint will seal it and keep it from comming off.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

Icemaker not making ice, but metal tray full of frozen water.


If you want to just get the ice out you could turn off the fridge and defrost every thing, i.e. you have to not have food in it that will spoil, but basically plan to be without the fridge freezer for a day and take all the food out - turn it off / unplug it and let it warm up with the doors open ( it should only take a coulple of hours at the most . Clean it all out and wipe it down then - close the doors and plug it in or turn it on again.

IF you are just wondering how to get the ice that is in their out, is the ice maker turned off ? There is a metal bar above or along side the ice maker that can be raised or lowered. In its rasied position it turns the ise maker off so if its raised lower it to get the ice maker to work.

If it is lowered and its still not working it may be an issue with the heating element - see the following write up:-

Fixing an Ice MakerIce maker not working? Fortunately, icemakers are relatively simple in operation and easy to fix when they don't work. You can do it! pagetools_04a.gif An icemaker is a small appliance that fits inside a refrigerator's freezer and makes ice cubes. The water flows through a tube to an inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator. When water is needed, the valve lets the water flow into an ice cube mold, where it freezes. When a thermostat senses that the ice is cold enough, a heater melts the ice surface so that ejector blades can push the cubes into a bin. The cycle repeats until a shutoff arm stops it when the bin is full. Disassemble an icemaker:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the icemaker's front cover by unscrewing or prying it off as needed (refer to the owner's manual for specifics).
  3. Remove the ice bin, shelves, and vertical partition.
  4. Remove remaining screws, disconnect the icemaker wires from the harness connector or socket, and remove the unit from the freezer.
  5. Remove the back access panel (see Fixing a Refrigerator) and any fasteners that hold the inlet valve to the refrigerator.
Service the water inlet valve:
  1. Turn off the water supply at the saddle valve on the pipe.
  2. Disconnect the inlet valve from the refrigerator (see above).
  3. Unscrew the tubes from the valve, letting excess water drain into a bowl.
  4. Unplug the wires from the valve.
  5. Use a multimeter on RX10 (resistance times 10) to probe both terminals on the valve solenoid. An infinite reading means the valve solenoid is bad; a reading of 1,000 ohms or less means it is probably good.
  6. Remove the plate and filter screen from the water inlet. Wash a clogged screen with a toothbrush under running water. Replace the screen if it is rusted or damaged.
