You will need to replace the heater that heats the ice enough to release it to dump. Here is the heater to order.

SOURCE: Samsung Ice Maker on Mdl RB215LASH

There is a simple solution but maybe not for the long run.

There is a black rubber button on the front of the underside of the icemaker. It is a reset switch. I was told by Samsung support that this is a common problem if the icemaker has been off for a while.

Mine wouldn't work out of the box and several resets later it is still not making ice consistently. It has been 2 weeks and it has yet to fill the bin. We haven't used ANY ice from the maker. If the best it can manage between resets is a few trays... I think its time for a return to the store.

I hope you have better luck.

The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Hello
Either the fill solinoid is bad or the inlet tube at the ice maker is frozen.
Try running a hair dryer to remove any ice that may be blocking the water from coming into the ice maker tray.

Ice maker not producing ice. Seems to be a frozen block of ice in machine that did not separate into cubes. How do I fix the problem?


If you have a frozen block of ice then something is wrong with the water sensor or it wouldn't have allowed the tray to overfill that way.

You can probably get it loosen up by using a hair dryer on the bottom of the tray and then be able to reach in and pull the block out. Once you clear the ice block, then see if the water fills the tray over the ice tray fins. If it does, then you will have to either adjust the sensor or replace it.

Our Ice maker is not producing ice. I've tried using a hair dryer to melt possible frozen water. It worked once, but now that ice maker is back to not producing ice.


The heating element is not working to heat the base and free the ice from the tray. At this point it's probably better to just replace the ice maker. They are about 60-70$

I have the samsung rs2577sl. the ice maker cube


Your model has the twist tray style icemaker. The part number for you front section that contains the motor assembly is DA97-00258E Ice Maker Assembly. You can try by taking it out and seeing if the tray will return to the home position but stopping there make me question if the thermal fuse in wiring harness may have blown. We may need to test that wire also to see if the thermal fuse is still good, I will leave you some of the links and ready to help when you need me, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Remove door and icemaker from bottom freezer model 59673914200 -- icemaker wont turn


The ice maker switch had come unattached due to excess ice buildup, and frozen to the ice pack. The ice in the ice maker had also frozen into a solid block due to not being able to rotate. After removing the drawer trays and protecting the frozen food, turning off the refridgerator, I used a hair drier to melt and remove the ice from the ice maker, gave it time to dry out, -- No gears wer stripped,- the ice maker now works normally.

Ice maker problem


Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps

Ice maker not working


Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...

Ice maker


I have a samsung fridge that had the same problem. I found that the metal water tube that fed the ice tray had frozen and blocked. On my fridge the metal tube has a a rubber nozzle. Remove that and have a look. Turning off the fridge until the ice melts or use a hair dryer for a quick thaw (becareful not to melt the plastic tray holder) may fix the problem.
