SOURCE: Samsung RS2555SL Ice Maker gone nutty!

The icemaker relies on the motor to twist the ice tray about 120 degrees or so the dump the ice out of the tray. In order to get the ice to separate from the tray the force of the motor actually torques the tray against the rear plastic support (much like you would twist an old fashioned ice tray that you fill up by hand). Anyway, this puts a lot of force on the plastic elements that support the tray and they break after time. Once the plastic support breaks in the back there is nothing to get the ice out of the tray and each subsequent filling of the ice tray results in water spilling all over the ice bin and eventually leaking out the front of the refrigerator. You can order the part and fix it yourself (the part is DA61-00244A and is available from a number of websites. Total cost about $16 with shipping.

you need to check the flapper in the door where the ice comes out,, if you take the ice bin out look down in the hole where the ice comes out,, if it is not sealing good it will let warm air come up the chute and melt the ice,, if it is sealing good,, then you need to check and see if the water fill tube( the one that goes into the icemake) is not froze up or has asomething blocking it

Either the icemaker support is broken, DA61-02205A or the ice tray is damaged or has lime buildup. The ice tray is supposed to twist when it flips: an off-center stud on the tray is supposed to catch the support, while the tray is still turning. If it does twist but does not release ice - replace or clean the ice tray, DA63-01453B

The top ice maker freezes up and the ice cubes don't dump


The heater in the ice tray is not going on to slightly melt the cubes so they can be pushed out of the tray. Either the element is burned out or it not receiving power. If it is the element you may have to replace the whole shebang since I have not seen the tray assembly sold separately. But I have seen brand new ice makers for about 45 dollars on ebay so ....................

Ice maker fills and freezes won't dump ice. It will if I hit the test button but not on its own


It sounds like it may be a bad freeze sensor. Consider having it services.
HOWEVER
The first thing I would recommend is removing the necessary grills and clean the condenser area and be sure the fan is operating. This becomes a problem in clean homes because the dirt slides on the floor and into the condenser coil where as the dirt sticks to a dirty floor.

Ice keeps getting stuck in ice maker # fsc23r505b2


Most icemakers have a low voltage defrosting element wrapped around the ice shute to prevent the ice from freezing and jamming up. Carefully have a look for any disconnected wires or damage to the heating element. If the ice is getting "glued" together in the ice box itself, its likely that the water tray is overfilling and causing water to run down into the ice box. When it freezes, it freezes all the ice blocks together. In this case, you may need a new ice maker tray or ice maker water valve.

Why does water not shut off after making ice


Is the bin drain line and dump drain line tied together. If so then it is melting ice from the bin. now when ice machine starts up it will dump the old water in sump tray so it will be fresh water during new freeze cycle.

The ice maker in my samsung fridge is putting too much water into the ice tray thus dripping water into the ice compartment and freezing all the ice cubes together and dripping through the outlet

Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator (GS5SHAXNLOO) Ice maker not running, some ice in maker melted together


I have the same model. This has happened to me several times (usually when the door was kept ajar without notice).
Simply open the door, take a common hairdryer and blow at high speed (hottest also) all around the area of where you can feel the ice in the tray, but hasn't dumped yet. It will usually take about 5-8 minutes of consistently moving back and forth around that area. What has happened is the lines bringing water to the trays have frozen over. When you "thaw" them out, the ice made will dump in about 45 minutes. When you hear the ice fall, you will know it's in working order again. I have NOT heard this is a "flawed" icemaker, only that it is hypersensitive to freezing lines when a door is left ajar. In your case, to prevent this from happening again. If you shut the icemaker off again, make SURE you turn off the source of the water feed BEFORE you turn off the ice maker. By doing this, the lines will empty as it makes it's last tray of water. Try that - very confident it will fix your problem!

If the unit is freezing well in the freezer and your ice bin is defrosting or ice is melting together it is your ice maker over filling the tray causing water to leak into the bin. You can purchase kits that contain all ice maker parts needed , it may be the ice maker and it may be the water inlet valve in the back , both come in the kit , go to sears parts on line with the model number from your unit.

Ice maker doesn't work


try as little bit harder and the ice maker should pull out stright from the freezer. watch out for the holders they are on the back and they sometimes are broken if you are not carefull with them. there is also two wire that have to be unconected when you do this. they are moilex connectors and if you push the tabs they should pull apart real easily. Thanks for using FixYa And have a great new year.
