What part was installed?

Ensure that the Ice Maker arm is in the down position.

There is a thermostat that closes when the ice mold reaches a temperature that indicates that the water in the mold is frozen if this thermostat is faulty it will prevent the Ice Maker from going into the dump cycle.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Used to make several batches of ice a day, now 1-2 a week.

If your refrig has the icebucket on the door and the icemaker on the roof of the fridge then you have two eyes on each side of the freezer....they are bad. If not then the icemaker module is bad. If you have a regular icemaker that hangs from the left side of the freezer then the module is bad. Also......Is your freezer still working good? Icemakers will not work if the temp is not low enough. Are you sure the icemaker is cycling but not making the full number of cubes? Low water pressure will force the icemaker to make only a few cubes at a time

Electronic Board questionable

Do you have the model number of your refrigerator? Ice makers will not work if the freezer is not below 5 degrees Fahrenheit or -15 Celsius They also fail themselves or not working because the water control for the ice maker side is not working. Not likely a control board unless the board in built into the ice maker

I get an Error code Er if on my LG refrigerator, what can I do?

Hello Janet;

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

Based on your problem I do not need your model number. This is a high maintenance unit. You have a bottom freezer with the ice maker and bucket on the fresh food section door.

The error code IF is the ice maker fan. You have two fans, one for the freezer and one for the ice maker.

First, ice makers and ice buckets belong in the freezer section. When they are on the door they are exposed to the warm room air temperature and condensate forms freezing the ice cubs together. Then you open and close the fresh food section door you force warm air down the air vents to your ice maker fan and your ice maker fan freezes up and burns out trying to start.


Part #: 5209JA1044A Cost: $75.00

You can purchase it over the internet for a lot less.

Base on what you described, I suspect your ice maker fan over loaded your control board and damaged it.


Part #: EBR41956418 Cost: $125.00 You can get this over the internet for about $80.00 or less.

Now, how do you want to do this?

1.) You can pay for a $400.00-$450.00 service call?

2.) Or do it dirty. Kill the power to the ice maker fan and purchase ice cube trays and put them in your freezer.

a.) Purchase a new control board.

b.) Take the bottom kick plate off the front of the unit. You will need to pull the bottom freezer door out to do this. There are two fillips head screws holding this on. Remove the screws and the kicker plate, also called the toe plate.

c.) In the front there are 2 leveling screws. One on each side. These are hard to raise, you do not have much to grab on. I use channel locks. Turn counter clockwise to raise and clear the floor.

d.) Pull your unit out so you can get behind it.

e.) Behind the unit unplug the unit.

f.) On the left side there is a metal cover plate over your main control board.


h.) Remove the metal cover - unscrew.

I.) There are several white pins holding the board on. There is a small leg on each pin that must be pressed in to release the board.

j.) Systematically go around the control board disconnecting one connector at a time and connecting to the new board. Each connector has a tab to squeeze to release.

k.) Push the board back onto the white retaining pins.

l.) Now we are going to disconnect the freezer fan. On the control board each connector is marked with a number below it. Look for, "CON 7". You are going to cut the two wires to disconnect power to your ice maker fan.

j.) On the Con 7, on the left cut the yellow wire with the black stripe and the solid blue wire. CUT THESE WIRES ABOUT 2" AWAY FROM THE CONNECTOR IN THE EVENT YOU WISH TO REPLACE THE ICE MAKER FAN IN THE FUTURE.

I would have thought with all of the recalls under warrantee that LG has had on this model that they would have stopped manufacture.

Where in the mountains is your unit?

Ice Box wont stay running

Hello Jeff;

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

Ice Box? You must not be from the Glen Burnie, Maryland USA area.

Ice boxes or ice maker have several controlling factors. Some are repairable. Here is how they work:

1.) Your ice maker will harvest ice cubes 8 to 10 times within 24 hours.
2.) You have a control module in the front of your ice maker. This is like a small control board. It has a motor and plastic gearing system. It also control the lever system to fill your ice bucket.
3.) The control module tells the solenoid valve in the lower back right hand side of your unit to open and fill the ice cube tray.
Then you have a temperature sensor that tells the control the ice cubes are frozen.
4.) You either have a flex ice cube mold that will activate or a heater under the mold tat will turn on for a set period of time to release the ice cubes from the mold.

Send me the model number of your unit and then we can trouble shoot together.

Why will the ice not dump? I replaced the ice maker because it was not turning to dump the ice after the ice was frozen. Same problem with new ice maker. Reset button causes the ice tray to turn, dump...

Your ice maker is controlled by the main board. The ice maker has a sensor that tells the board what the mold temperature is. The first step is to make sure your ice maker is turned on. There is an "on/off" setting on your control panel. Look very closely at the glass depicted. Some models show ice cubes in a glass, others have the words ice off. It's difficult to tell without looking close. If your ice is on, a Samsung qualified tech should be called to check connections, and the board.

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.

No water to ice maker. Water dispenses in refrigerator ok. Filter is new. Also control panel not working in refrigerator section.

Its unusual that both parts would go at one time it could be you had a lightening strike or a power surge that took out both parts as they have nothing in common that one causes the other to operate other than temperature. This is what I would do. Since the control board is obviously bad I would replace that first. Let it run a day or two and if the ice maker does not start I would replace that part. I have linked them below.

To replace the ice maker module you must remove the ice maker and then remove the wiring before installing the new module to prevent the contacts from being bent inside the ice maker wire connector. Install the new module then connect the wires and place it in the freezer. Also if your ice maker has no water in it now the module is not the problem....get back to me.

Ice maker over fill, water keeps running

If water keeps running to the ice maker all the time even when it doesn't call for water , the water valve for the ice maker is leaking(located in the back of the refrigerator,bottoom right),but if overflow only when it calls for water(no more than 7 seconds) the problem is in the ice maker control board, you can replace it but it will cost almost as a new ice maker.

Ice maker wont shut off

So many different types. lots of info needed. In short, lg have DIPswitches on main board. By adjustment of these switches, the water in can be controlled.I dont think there is a water sensor on these makers per say.Does the water ever switch off at any time and if so, is the inflow time constant?. Assuming the solonoid valve is not defective.
