Ice Maker quit making ice cubes

Where is the ice-maker reset button for a Samsung bottom freezer, top fridge. The unit is less than a year old.

    That was the reset button!

    One more piece of valuable information: The black "runner" reset button must be depressed and held for three seconds to reset. The machine is now making ice (after two months).

Look on the bottom of the rectangular motor housing for the ice maker. This is the white box that holds the front end of the ice tray. In the past, this was normally a small patch of black 'runner' that covered the switch and helped kkep moisture out.

If you cannot locate it by feel, try using a small mirror and a flashlight to help you locate it.

    I'm glad it worked. As for the button, I meant to type 'rubber', not 'runner'!

Perfect Solution. I thought the line was frozen but all I needed was to hit the reset button.

Thanks

Can this ice maker be set to make more ice? And faster?


Icemakers cycle cubes from the air temperature inside the freezer so you can't do much to increase speed except adjust the freezer control colder. As to the bucket not filling, most icemakers have a feeler arm or plastic paddle that is suppose to sense the ice level in the bucket. Make sure the feeler arm or paddle at the bottom is free and no sticking or hitting anything. It needs to move freely ask the icemaker dumps the cubes. If your refrigerator is less that a year old it should be under warranty and a free repair to you.

Hi adc3,

If the display has stopped working, it is often caused by a blown fuse. Please locate the main control board and check if there's a fuse that may have blown. For the ice maker issue, please check if the ice maker has been turned off. You can check it by looking for a wire that looks like a coat hanger that is located at the right side of the ice maker. Ensure that this wire is not in the raised position. If it is turned off, just simply lower the wire to the down position to turn on the ice maker. If this did not work, please check the tooth on the drive or driven gear of the ice maker. If you noticed a broken tooth you should replace the ice maker.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES


your model will have a filter for it. it is located usually on the fridge side torwarss the top back of the fridge. it sounds like you need to replace the filter. it needs to be replaced every 4 monthes or so to keep the water clean. also you may put some water in a cup from the tap/faucet and make sure it is not the water it's self. if it is you may want to think about also having a water filtration system installed in your home.

Ice maker doesn't make enough ice to supply two senior citizens. This is the 2nd refrigerator we have had installed this month. What can we do to increase the amount of ice it puts out. The ice bin has...


Found in the FAQ section on Samsung.com:
Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in line with most manufacturer specifications.
Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours.
If fewer than 50 cubes are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service. Please contact Samsung Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG to schedule a service appointment.
If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
  • Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
  • Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water supply line taps into your house water line.
  • If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.
If you want your freezer to produce more than 120 ice cubes in a day, try the following:
  • An ice maker typically makes 1 tray of ice every 90 minutes. To shorten the amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting.
  • If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to 12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from clean water.
