Re: Ice Maker

Most of the samsung's have a reset button on the bottom front of the ice maker that just pushes in and it should start the cycle.

Re: Ice Maker

Thanks fridgetech. This was a new side by side with auto ice and water dispenser. It had just been delivered and the installer couldn't fix it so I sent him away and went to the internet where I found your solution which worked. The Guide makes no reference to a reset button. To see my reset button I removed the ice bin. On the front underside, flush with the housing, was a small 3/8 square rubber cover. Pressed it for a couple of seconds and the ice maker went into operation.

Re: Ice Maker

I have a Samsung RM255LASH model. The icemaker stops working every 2 to 3 months. It was evaluated on three separate occasions by different, but no one volunteered to tell me about the reset button. The third serviceman slipped and said he had to press the reset button four times before the ice would dump. However, he wanted to order a new icemaker for replacement. I insisted I wanted the entire refrigerator unit to be replaced, since I have had the same problem for almost an entire yeas and the warranted was about to expire. After looking at the newest model in Lowe's store, place of purchase, I decided to try the reset button for a few more weeks. Also, I decided to search the Internet to learn if other people had a similar problem with this particular icemaker. I am simply flabbergasted to learn that there is a reset button to this unit and servicemen from three separate companies did not volunteer this information.

No water to the ice maker

Check that the pipe that fills the ice maker is not iced up. Also check that the solenoid on the back (where the waterline hooks up) is making a humming noise when the ice maker calls for water.

Hooked up water line and ice maker, water working notice maker. Any ideas?

Make sure wire loop extending out from the ice maker over the ice bin is pushed down. Up turns the ice maker off.

Without more info, I can't diagnose further.
Stick finger in ice tray where ice freezes. Is there water in there. No, check solenoid valve and water line to ice maker (kinks). Is there ice cubes in ice tray? Is ice maker pushed fully in? All wires to ice maker on back and underneath connected?

If this information was useful, please select YES to the first two rating questions. Good Luck and thank you!

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Ice Maker Not Working

Hi: A lot of reverse osmosis systems don't supply enough water pressure to the ice maker to fill. Contact your manufactrue of your reverse osmosis system and see if it works with icemakers. I thind usually the require at least 20-30psi. Or hook your refrigerator to city pressure to see if it works. Also I don't know if you have just an ice maker or a water dispensing side by side, or your water quality. If you just have an icemaker, most chlorine will evaporate before the ice is frozen, any odors in the water will still be there. Good Luck, Jeff

Ice maker leaks inside freezer

check the water discharge hose which fills the ice maker after ice is dumped into the bin. the line is located in most cases at one end of the ice maker and allows the water to flow into a funnel like device above the ice maker mold. the hose has the diameter of a penny, it is probably misaligned with the ice maker itself/

Ice Maker Not Making Ice

There is no pump per say.. the water pressure is all that fills the ice maker and provides water to the drinking dispensor. The solenoids are also different, one activates for ice maker and the other for drinking water. The fastest way to check water flow is to swap the wires on the solenoids so the drinking water "power" will now power the ice fill solenoid. Once the plugs are swapped and you press the drinking water lever the ice maker should pour water out the fill tube. If that works then you know the solenoid, tube, etc. are all fine. I'd suspect then that the ice maker fill solenoid isn't getting power when it is suppose to fill. Let me know what this test result is.
