SOURCE: Samsung 215LASH ice maker

How I fixed my Samsung icemaker for refrigerator model RBLASH215.
I did a great deal of research about my problem but could not find anyone who reported the exact same problem.
The symptons:
Icemaker would not eject ice into the holding bin.
Water would flow into tray with ice and overflow into holding bin.
I identified the problem by pressing upward (hold up to 3 seconds to start the cycle) on the black reset button located at the bottom front of the icemake. I observed the cycle and could see a visible crack toward the back of the ice tray. The ice tray is made of plastic and is designed to flex which causes the ice to eject much like the manual plastic trays where you would turn upside down and twist. The motor turns the tray over and presses the ice tray stop causing it to flex the tray and hence eject the ice. With the crack, the tray no longer flexed.
Finding the part:
Wow, this took sometime as I did not want to order the wrong part. I saw two part numbers listed, DA63-02284A and DA63-02284A. I ordered both parts and as far as I could tell, they were identical to each other. Oh well, I now have a spare part.
How to replace:
It is easy once you have done it. Uplug the refrigerator. Remove the two screws at the front of the ice maker (get on the floor and look upward). Gently slide the icemaker forward about one inch and lower about 6 inches. Remove the wire electrical harness above the ice tray by squeezing the holding clip and then pulling downward. The icemaker can now be removed. Remove the motor by pressing down on the plastic holding clip and then slliding the motor outward. The ice tray is now accessible but you still need to remove the temperature sensor connected to tray (the sensor tells the icemaker when to begin the cycle of ejecting the ice and refilling with water). Install the temperature sensor to the new ice tray and insert the motor with the new ice tray. Install the icemaker back into the refrigerator.
I hope this helps.

What is causing water accumulation in bottom freezer


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

You have one of two problems:

1.) Frozen Drain:
You unit goes through a defrost model every 8-10 hours. At this time everything shuts down with the exception of the unit lights. Then, your defrost heater turns on for 20-30 minutes to defrost your cooling (Evaporator) coils. If you have a frozen drain the condensate has no where to go except on the bottom of your freezer. This is a common problem.
A trained technician would pull the back wall out of your freezer, access your drain, clear the drain and put a heat sink in the drain to prevent this from happing in the future. This is a major task even for a technician. This will cost you about $350.00.
You can try unplugging your unit for 24 hours and let the ice melt.

2.) Refrigerant Restriction:
In the upper right had corner of your cooling (evaporator) coil is a small 1/16" diameter tube with a inside diameter about the size of a small needle. This is where it is common for refrigerant flow to get blocked. This is where the high pressure liquid refrigerant turns to vapor. If there is a blockage, a large block of ice forms and drips water into the bottom of the freezer. Also, your cooling coils will not have a full frost pattern. You will get cooling and after a month or a couple of months gradually no cooling.

A repair of this nature is about $500.00 +.

Rule of thumb: "If the repair cost is 1/3 or more of the original cost of the unit - buy new."

Here is what I suggest; Unplug your unit for 24 hours. If after 1-2 weeks the water problem reoccurs. Purchase a new unit. Go to a Sears Outlet Store. Purchase a scratched unit. Save $400.00. The unit comes with a full one year warrantee.

If you decide to go with the repair, go into the Sears Home Services site and print out a 10% coupon on services.

Samsung "Cool-n-cool" fridge freezer defrosting food

Is it "defrosting" the food or unable to keep it frozen? Probably unable to keep frozen. Many possible problems. 1. Defrost element bad and evaporator coil is iced over, or 2. Failed evaporator fan inside freezer, or 3. Low freon causing iced up evaporator coil....Do you see any ice build up on the back wall of freezer? Do you hear the freezer fan running or not? Take a look and get back to me.

Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer side by side--compressor keeps running

Most problems with side by sides frosting up is due to failure of the defrost heater in the bottom of the freezer section behind the panel inside.

My Samsung SRL550DW keeps cutting out. If you turn the power off it restarts and works fine and then cuts out again after a few hours. Is this a main PCB problem. Prior to this happening the door chim

I have had the exact same issue and its not a samsung issue but any modern fridge with a defrost system in the freezer (fridge doesn't generally frost up as its not run at freezing temperatures.

You need to check a few things:
1. Clear the freezer draws out and clear any ice build up.
2. Be careful and unclip the first white plastic vent panel (hint: pull from the middle an inch or two then push the sides in so the tabs are pulled towards the middle and the panel pops out)
3. Unscrew and unclip the 2nd panel (holds the circulation fan) to view the freezer coils - you will need to unclip the power for the fan and the heating coil for the drip tray under the freezing coils.
4. This is where the issue usually is:

If the tray is full of ice then do the following. If not and you can poor water through the drain hole on the bottom, then the issue is a dead sensor or control board - seek professional advice or if your game, there are swap out kits you can buy.

So the drip tray is full of ice ? Unscrew the freezer coils from the back wall but DO NOT touch it any further in case you damage it. There should be some silver tape tape that holds the tray in place - remove it and then gently lift the coils up to allow the tray out. If its too full of ice, use a hair dryer or warm water to de-ice. Once the tray is out, defrost it completely and dry it - be careful not to damage the heating wires under the tray as this is used to deice it during a normal defrost cycle. Clear any remaining ice on the coils or along the back wall - Dry it well.

Usually the cause for the drip tray to freeze up is a blockage in the drain pipe that empties into the back of the fridge. Unscrew the back panel and you will see 2 soft plastic pipes drain water into a water tray. pull both off and clean/inspect. You will notice they pinch in the middle to stop air getting back in, but allows water to drip out. If they are blocked, they will back fill the internal drains and freeze, thus fooling the fridge into thinking it hasn't defrosted yet and not turning the compressor back on. (Since this ice is hidden at the back, it is the last to melt thus the freezer gets warmer waiting for the insulated ice near the drain to melt.

When I did my freezer, the water is dripping out slowly (it was cold) but once I removed the pipe, it emptied properly. inspection of the pipe showed dirt/insect blocking the pinched section of the pipe.

Reassemble the pieces in reverse order, ensuring the water was been dried with a cloth. My fridge/freezer hasn't skipped a beat since.

Part 2 for build up of ice on coil inside frig

Does your locale have high humidity? If it does, there is no true way of stopping the build-up of frost (and ice). Unfortunately, water vapor condenses below the dew point (temperature at which vapor turn to liquid). This happens at higher temperatures in very high humidity environments. It is not as noticeable in the winter months when humidity is low, but the summer months are another story. Just like when you see water vapor on the outside of a glass of ice tea in the summer; you don't notice it as much in the winter months.

Ice forms on the bottom of the freezer and water leaks on the floor water to the ice maker was turned off and that did not solve the problem.

Assuming that this is a self-defrosting freezer (which almost all are today), the defrosting coil or the timer may be bad. The defrosting coil actually warms up the freezer slightly every X hours. This thaws the ice that starts to form in the freezer. The vapor is then evaporated and exists out through a drip tube to the bottom of the freezer/fridge into a pan. The pan usually has the compressor fan blowing over it to evaporate the contents.

How do I defrost a Samsung Refrigerator # RS2555SW?

Take the back cover inside the freezer off and you can see the iced up coils. Use a hairdryer to melt the ice. Don't chip it off, you might puncture the coil.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

The freezer coil in the lower freezer section freezes up with ice. I have the upper section at 5C and the freezer 18C. We first notice that there is water under the fruit drawers and the fridge seems to...

unplugged it and defrosted the coil with a blower and it starts working fine ...

It it happens again perhaps defrost sensor, timer, or perhaps the heater coil being a problem. the heater is on the coil you will seethe wires the therm. is on the top of coils timer could be at lower back of refrig.

My walk-in freezer is developing stilagtights (ice castles) on the floor and cieling in front of the evaporator coil.MY drain pan is not plugged when I pour water down it.

You should check for air leaks around the door gasket or any other openings in the compartment such as where pipes or wiring is going through the wall. It sounds like a moisture problem from moisture being drawn into the compartment pass door gaskets or access holes.

Hidden Ice build-up inside plastic bottom cover of freezer

Generally, icing is the result of too much water vapor inside the unit, blockage of the circulation channels and too much packing in of the box.  The water vapor is generally caused by: uncapped items in the fridge, opening the door too often, humid conditions, bad door seals.  There is of course, there is a possibility that the defrost cycle on the unit is not working.  About once a day, depending on the brand, you should notice that the fans and compressor don't run and you should hear a bit of creaking, sloshing or other strange noises as the ice melts.  If this is not happening, your defrost timer or the coil it heats could be bad.
