SOURCE: Ice maker bin indicator arm is stuck in the bin is full position

You should be able to move it gently to the lower position.  If it doesn't want to move don't force it.  Try shutting the ice maker off in case the arm is frozen in the up position.  After the ice maker defrosts a bit try again to move the arm gently.

Too much ice, maybe the ice maker didn't connect right, the gears moves but the spring inside the ice maker won't move.

reduce water fill, small adjustment screw on side of power head, clockwise for decrease, maximum one full turn. if that fails, remove i/m and check for cracked mold, fill with water and place on level table under paper towel. if ok, replace module.

Check my solution here. The noisy sound is the swing arm trying to knock out some stuck ice.

SOURCE: Clump of ice in bucket

That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.

The evaporator fan and heating system must be checked, and fan, or solenoid, or element must be replaced.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

Why is ice bucket stuck?


One of 2 things happened. Your ice maker overflowed with water and now the bucket is frozen or the ice maker fell into the bucket and it's wedged. If you can get the bucket out at least a inch it's the second problem

Ice maker stopped dispensing


Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

Water leaking in ice cube tray - makes chunks of ice in ice container


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Are you sure water is leaking? This ice bucket is famous for all the ice clumping together! Some of the reasons are,Not using the ice dispenser enough,Crushed ice getting stuck in the ice chute door allowing warm air in to melt the ice,Ice door not closing all the way,Opening and closing the freezer door allot,But like mentioned before not using it every day is the main reason.You should remove the bucket every couple weeks and run hot water through it.If it ever gets stuck on the door you have to remove as much ice as possible and then use hot water to pour in there and catch the water out of the ice dispenser until it will break free.There are allot of service calls for this and never have i seen any icemaker that leaks if it is you have to replace it.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Ice maker dispenser gets stuck. auger will not turn in the ice bucket. motor that drives auger tries to turn, but something in the front of of the auger/dispenser prevents it from turning.


I have this identical unit and have had this identical problem. What we do is remove the entire ice container from the refrigerator and shake it to break up the ice inside or we remove large chunks of adjoined 'cubes' and replace the entire tray/container and it has worked fine for us thereafter.

Samsung rf267aars icemaker stops making ice, icemaker makes clicking noise.


unfortunately it sounds like you have a broken tooth on the drive or driven gear of the ice maker, in this case you should replace the ice maker. The good news is that you can get a new one for about 85 bucks at your local appliance parts store.

Two issues


Well here is How I fixed My French Door Ice Maker, It made the same loud crashing sounds, and seldom put out much ice. To the point that it made no ice at all.

First, Make sure you can get water out of the front, if not, your water lines may be clogged.

The second thing you can do is hit the secret RESET button on the upper front side of the ice maker. See my first image for it's location, it is a soft rubber button.

The third thing.. In my case the reset button worked for a little bit. But eventually stopped. I had to remove the ice maker, and found that that several rows of ice had gotten stuck. The swinging arm that smacks the ice out would just strip the gears banging that ice to no avail. So opening the ice maker up and cleaning it out helped. I also cleaned the sensor contact with some alcohol. It is a thin metal strip close to where the gearing housing is. This I believe is ultimately where the problem starts. It allows the trays to get overfilled, and the ice can't be released. Once I cleaned out the tray of stuck ice, cleaned the sensor, plugged it back in, and hit the reset button once more, It was making loads of ice once again. If this fails, you can get a complete new ice maker online, I found a vendor on eBay selling it for a reasonable $80. You can use my pictures to see how to disassemble for repair ore replacement. My fridge by the way is the RF267AARS.

the part number is: DA97-05554A

It works with the following refrigerators
Samsung RF267AABP Samsung RF267AABP/XAA Samsung RF267AARS Samsung RF267AARS/XAA Samsung RF267AASH/XAA Samsung RF267AAWP/XAA

Ice maker freezes Whirlpool gold


try to remove all the ice in the bucket first and start all over again. the first bundle of ice could be the one making the problem. and then check the cold air vent towards the ice bucket. there should be cold air blowing to it to maintain the temperature in order for the ice not to melt.

after removing all the ice and inspecting if there is cool air coming out towards the ice bucket. let it run and observe it.


tnx 4 using fixya,
