Re: ice machine not working, rattling when door...

From my experience on Samsung ice makers there was a redesigne on the ice maker due to the problem of it not producing any ice. They use a flex tray and the trays have been braking,and the sensor n the bottom may have loosend up. I would call samsung and find out if you are covered under a warrenty for your problem. Or if you purchased a service contract call them and they will take care of it.

The fridge is all working ok the freezer is all working ok but the ice maker is not working i have removed the tube that goes to the water part at the back and blew down it an it is not blocked

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First off check the freezer door switch for operation. Depress the plunger and make sure the light goes off when the door switch plunger is depressed. Ligt stays on = bad door switch / no ice production as the door switch provides power to the ice-maker when the door is closed.

Here is a link to the steps on how to troubleshoot an ice-maker.

Let me just add that many ice-maker related problems are due to the freezer temp rising above 16 deg F. The freezer starts warming up due to ice build up on the evaporator coils and then the internal air-flow is blocked by the ice build up causing the temps to rise. Look closely at the back of the unit for any signs of ice build up.
If you see ice build up......
1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove the freezer contents
3. Place a fan directing air into the freezer for just over 2 hours. (Water mess!)
4. Clean up the excess water and restart the unit. (Add freezer content)
5. After 8 - 10 hours check for ice production.

If after doing the above you have ice production then most likely you have an automatic defrosting problem.

If it still does not make ice, the steps in the link above will isolate what has failed in the ice-maker.

Before testing the ice-maker using the steps in the link.. I recommend you peform a manual defrost with a fan. If 8 - 10 hours after the manual defrrost you do not have ice production,, use the link and troubleshoot the ice maker.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My kenmore fridge - 4 years old - has developed an intermittant rattle. Stops when the door is open on fridge or freezer. Starts again if you open the door but hold down the light button so it...

That button just turns the interior light on when you open the door and off when you close it. Could a light bulb be slightly unscrewed? Or perhaps the bulb cover is loose?

Ice maker, water dispenser stopped working first, now the refrigerator/ freezer will not stay cold all the time. Just figured out today that if you push the light buttom (by the ice and water buttons) it

The light switch turns on the dispenser when door is closed if switch is not defective. If the temperatures are increasing in freezer and fresh food compartment it is most likely the defrost heater and defrost thermostat will need replaced. Look to see if ice is building on the rear wall of the freezer. If yes unplug and remove the rear panel in back of freezer and defrost with hair dryer or a bucket of hot water setting inside freezer with door closed. This way when defrosted you can examine the 2 parts that may be defective listed above, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice machine does not make ice

No guide that I know of .

Open the freezer door and see if the laser light on the right side , flashes twice , then pause , repeatedly . Close the flap on the left side , and the laser should stop flashing . If this is what occures , then the optics ( cut off of the icemaker ) are ok . If you open the freezer and no laser on the right , check the position of the "rake" inside the icemaker . Close the freezer door for about 1 min , and then recheck the position of the rake . If it hasn't moved , then the icemaker is bad .
If the light flashes 2 times then pauses , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker , and check later , to see if the ice maker has dumped the cubes . If did not dump , replace the icemaker . If did dump , and did not fill with water , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . Also check the black fill tube above the ice maker fill cup , to see if it is iced up , keeping the water from going into the fill cup . If it is frozen , then replace the water valve , due to seeping ( not closing completely ) , causing the slight drip , to freeze inside the tube .
This is the only guide I know of and it's called an experience guide .
