Question about Samsung Refrigerators
The ice maker freezes up and the ice cubes partially melt then freeze together so that the ice dispenser won't dispense ice.

Smitty, if this is a GSS20, General Electric model you have an electronic model ice-maker. There is no water adjustment screw. Here's how the fill works; when the harvest is finished the icemaker will enter the fill cycle. The amount of water entering the mold is controlled by temperature. Before any water enters the mold has to be at least 35.6 degrees. Water entering the mold will cause the mold temperature to change, effecting the resistance of a thermistor. The first fill activates the water valve for 5 seconds. The thermistor checks the temp of the mold. If the temperature of the mold exceeds 39 degrees the icemaker will end the fill cycle and enter the freeze cycle. If the temp of the mold is still below 39 degrees, the control will assume that an insufficient amount of water entered the mold, and energize the water valve for another 2.5 seconds. Now it will check the temp again. If the mold is still below 39 degrees a third fill of 2.5 seconds will occur. You could have a thermistor that's out of spec. Usually on this model, the power LED on the icemaker will flash 1/2 second on and 1/2 second off if the thermistor is open or shorted. You could have a water valve that is not seating properly and allowing more water to enter the ice-maker. You can run a cycle on this ice maker by turning it off, then on again and pushing the feeler arm in 3 times within 15 seconds. Watch how the fill works. Anyway, outside of the excellent information posted by 24 seven, This will give you an idea of how the icemaker works. Catriver.

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.
I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid
