SOURCE: No ice in the ice dispenser since yesterday

the trouble is coming from eithier the micron switch located at the backof the paddle,or the auger motor.It is the motor that rotates when you press the cube dispenser lever located at the back portion of the icebucket,it might got stucked.or its winding is open Try to hve a check ,first open the freezer door, pull out the icebucket, look fr the light switch then maintain the door open,use your right hand in pressing the switch to simulate a closed door position,next use your left hand to press the cube dispenser lever, if the auger motor rotates and you heard a humming sound, it means it is only your ice cubes that sticked together preventing the motor to rotate freely,or there is something wrong with your bucket only,if your hear humming sound only, the auger motor is stuck up, unplug the unit, removed all the screws securing the bracket,disconnect the wiring connector, pull out it out,try to thaw the froozen motor if it is still stuck,wait a longer more or try to apply wd40 oil in between the entangled rotor and core, lubricte.If you hear nothing the winding might be open or there is no supply to the motor., point of check- micron switch- check for continuity,wiring leading to it and the line goin out to cabinet/inside, check the main connector to the bucket area for corrosion or accumulated dirts, And lastly if you are not confident enough to do the job sir better to calla qualified technican to do the troubleshooting sir, safety is our first priority.

How can i stop my larder fridge from producing lots of ice?

If your fridge is built into the furniture, pull it out by releasing all the retaining screw, clean the condenser and the areas behind your fridge. Dust and fluffs reduce the efficiency of the fridge. Also turn the dial to three, if it is higher, older fridge do not need to be cranked to higher numbers. If no joy call an engineer, the level of refrigerant in your system may need topping up. Will cost you anything from sixty pounds for a qualified engineer to do this.

My AEG Santo freezer is leakin water on the floor every few days. There is also a build up of ice inside the bottom of the freezer, even though we very recently defrosted the freezer. This fridge/freezer...

try pulling out the fridge very slowly, any signs of hard resistance than stop. there should be a main water shut off back there. if still uncomfortable with this you can always shut the main water off to the house before trying. hope this helps.

Constant build up of water at the bottom of the fridge - what can I do to solve the problem

Check if the pipe or hose that supply water for the ice maker is not leaking. Look in the back of the fridge at the bottom part to see if frost is building up on the pipe then melting and putting water on the floor. Build up of frost on the line indicates low on freon or something is wrong with the fridge. It will still get cold but the frost will melt and put water on the floor.

1. First check if your door rubbers seals properly. if not, try and adjust yor doors so that they seal properly.what happens sometimes is that moisture leaks into your fridge.
2. It is also possible that your unit is overgased. you can buy yourself a valve that can be screwed onto the suction pipe line to your compressor. at the back of your fridge you will find a condenser unit that is directly connected to your compressor. that is called the discharge line and you will notice that the discharge line is thinner than the suction line to your compressor. get yourself a set of fridge gauges that you will connect to your valve that you just connected to your suction line. check your psi reading of your suction line under normal running conditions. to get a compartment temperature of minus 18deg celcius your psi reading depending on gas your fridge is charged with should be more or less 4,5 psi. if you have ice build up at the back of your fridge on your suction line your unit is overgased. if your reading on your guage reads less than zero psi then your unit is undergassed. good luck.

Ice building up on the internal back wall of AEG SANTO K 9 18 00-4i Integrated fridge. this is meant to be self defrosting. We have not defrosted in 3 years and the build up has happened over the last 6...

Your defroster mechanism inside the unit has gone out. What this is is a long tube that heats up to maintain the ice from forming as you say. It possibly went out at the last defrost cycle as you had stated. this defrost cycle is done by the fridge on its own as the has been designed to do. I would suggeest having the unit serviced by a tech since you have an intergrated system. Good Luck on your Repairs

Superba Fridge 1998 KSRS25Q???WH01

We had this problem with our ice maker. We could get water through the door water dispenser but it stopped making ice.
We had read that the line could be frozen and that was the case.
The easiest way to thaw it out was to remove the two screws holding the water hose elbow into the back of the freezer (pull the fridge out away from the wall to access it). It will come out with about a 5-6 inch long hard plastic tube which goes through the back freezer wall and joins with an aluminum tube (which may also be plugged with ice) that reaches the ice maker. Looking inside the tube we could see the ice blockage. Heating it up with a hair dryer made the ice plug drop right out. We had tried to thaw it out by heating the tube inside the freezer, but the ice plug was actually in the wall part of the freezer and we wouldn't have been able to thaw it out from the inside (short of shutting the refrigerator off). When the heat was applied...a 3 inch plug of ice dropped out of the tube, and there was even a very small piece of ice blocking the elbow part. We wouldn't have been able to thaw that area out without taking it apart.
