Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a samsung refridgerator rfg298aabp/xaa with 2 ice makers. one in the lower freezer and the second in the upper left of the fridge. When I reset or test the lower ice maker it does push ice out and will refill with water. But neither ice makers will dispence ice automatically, water pressure is fine. Could the water inlet valve be bad but would still let water in the tray during a test cycle?

It is quite possible the water line near the ice-maker is frozen. I would try a warm hair drier to thaw it out.

SOURCE: Ice maker won't make ice

It sounds like the fill tube coming through the freezer wall is frozen shut. Need to carefully take a hair dryer to it then recheck with wire swap. If you turn i/m off for a couple hours then back on you should be able to watch the fingers go around. If so you module should be good.

SOURCE: refridgerated water spout suddenly stopped producing water

Have you changed the water filter. It should be located in the front loer grille of the refrigerator.

SOURCE: ice maker not working

Cause could be the solenoid valve which controls water flow into the ice maker.

Could be bad solenoid, bad relay for solenoid, clogged solenoid valve, corroded electrical connections, etc.

More info? Let me know...

SOURCE: The automatic ice maker quit working, but first

I removed the wiring connectors from the two water control valves and when I reconnected the wires for the ice maker I heard the unit cycle. When I checked the ice maker, the ice maker shutoff arm was now completely down, operational position. Previously, I could see that the arm was up, but not at the top of the cycle. I'm not sure what caused the ice maker to cycle, but I am assuming that there was corrosion on the wiring connectors which was wiped off when unplugging/replugging the connectors.

Samsung RM255LABP/XAA freezer only gets to 27 degrees, won't harvest ice. Fridge and lower freezer work fine. After pressing the ice maker reset button, I hear a ding don sound coming from the control...


It won't harvest ice on its own unless it detects a temperature of 10 degrees. The ding ding sound is the control letting you know that the ice maker is functioning fine. Remove the evaporator cover in the freezer and make sure the coil isn't frozen over and the fan isn't restricted from turning. Check the door gasket is getting a good seal. If that's all good replace the sensor on the ceiling of the freezer.

My Samsung Refrigerator side by side door ,,Model,,SRS583DHD,, left hand side door ice maker increases temp and not producing ice,,;-(,,Bot


Your description sounds like a loss of air flow problem. Check for overloading your freezer and fresh food side. In order for the freezer and fresh food side to work properly, the air vents need adequate room for air to circulate. I had a customer who completey filled the middle shelf with cardboard boxes and completely blocked air flow on the middle shelf The lower level near the evaporator was extremely cold and the upper area was room temperature in the freezer. Each shelf needs about an inch of room at the back and room between packaging to allow air to circulate.
Hope this helps

Hi adc3,

If the display has stopped working, it is often caused by a blown fuse. Please locate the main control board and check if there's a fuse that may have blown. For the ice maker issue, please check if the ice maker has been turned off. You can check it by looking for a wire that looks like a coat hanger that is located at the right side of the ice maker. Ensure that this wire is not in the raised position. If it is turned off, just simply lower the wire to the down position to turn on the ice maker. If this did not work, please check the tooth on the drive or driven gear of the ice maker. If you noticed a broken tooth you should replace the ice maker.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
The fridge should be 40 degrees on lower but not 32 degrees of course.

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.

Reply back if you would like more info.

Two issues


Well here is How I fixed My French Door Ice Maker, It made the same loud crashing sounds, and seldom put out much ice. To the point that it made no ice at all.

First, Make sure you can get water out of the front, if not, your water lines may be clogged.

The second thing you can do is hit the secret RESET button on the upper front side of the ice maker. See my first image for it's location, it is a soft rubber button.

The third thing.. In my case the reset button worked for a little bit. But eventually stopped. I had to remove the ice maker, and found that that several rows of ice had gotten stuck. The swinging arm that smacks the ice out would just strip the gears banging that ice to no avail. So opening the ice maker up and cleaning it out helped. I also cleaned the sensor contact with some alcohol. It is a thin metal strip close to where the gearing housing is. This I believe is ultimately where the problem starts. It allows the trays to get overfilled, and the ice can't be released. Once I cleaned out the tray of stuck ice, cleaned the sensor, plugged it back in, and hit the reset button once more, It was making loads of ice once again. If this fails, you can get a complete new ice maker online, I found a vendor on eBay selling it for a reasonable $80. You can use my pictures to see how to disassemble for repair ore replacement. My fridge by the way is the RF267AARS.

the part number is: DA97-05554A

It works with the following refrigerators
Samsung RF267AABP Samsung RF267AABP/XAA Samsung RF267AARS Samsung RF267AARS/XAA Samsung RF267AASH/XAA Samsung RF267AAWP/XAA

Refridgerator freezer GE


Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.
