Even though the wire on the icemaker is as far up as it will go, it keeps on making ice even though the container is overflowing and ice cubes are pouring out all over my freezer. I've made sure nothing is blocking the wire, I've pushed the wire up manually as far as it will go, the ice is piling up PAST the wire, and still it keeps cranking out ice! HELP!

If the ice room is not getting/staying cold enough, the unit will not harvest the ice and proceed through the cycle... First step in troubleshooting is to determine if the compartment the icemaker sits in is cold enough, if it is, then you have to test the ice room temp. sensor to see if it is not sending the correct temp signal to the main board. These icemakers are modular and pretty much have to be replaced completely if the temperatures and sensor check OK. Samsung Refrigerator Temperature Sensor DA32 10104N
HI this is just a test the icemaker runs when you first turn it on, its not suppose to fill up the tray, it will fill it when the icemaker reaches the correct temperature, if its not cold enough in the freezer it wont kick on, if its been sitting for several hours and still wont fill or make ice, you need a new icemaker. The new icemaker part # is WR30X10093
to see if icemaker is still good pour a 1/2 cup of water into tray and wait for a day. make sure shutoff arm or switch is on or down (arm down) if it makes ice then the icemaker is ok. if it dont then hold up.
if it makes ice then either the water pressure is too low (or no water) or the water valve is bad. (to check water valve you need a volt meter).
ok back to hold up part... the icemaker actuallys controls the water valve so you can have no water but that doesnt mean the icemaker is bad. so here are the three possiblities to your problem:
not enough/no water
before you buy anything let me know and we can go over this again
hope this was helpful (or confusing sorry)
Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out. look for an adjustment behind the plastic
endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.
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.
There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.
usually yes if no water to icemaker could be water valve solenoid. . first you can remove cover on icemaker and put the unit thru a test mode. find the plastic or medal cam in center of icemaker head when cover is removed., theis is a flateblade screw center get a small screwdriver and turn screw counterclockwise for about a 1/4 of a turn , icemaker will start cycling if icemaker ok then it will go througha cycle let it do its thing usually a few minutes for it to cycle, if fills you may have a bad icemaker, if no fill then valve may be bad. make sure you have good water pressure from your water supply that can cause icemaker problems.
Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker ( unless ice is already there ) . If the icemaker dumps the cubes , then the water valve is bad . If it doesn't dump , and holds the frozen cubes , replace the icemaker . Also check your coils to make sure they are clean from dust , lint , etc . Check the fill tube going to the icemaker , to make sure it isn't frozen with ice . If it is , then watervalve is still bad (leaking ) .
Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker and see if it dumps the cubes after a few hours . If it does , and icemaker does not refill , then water valve is the problem . If the icemaker never dumps the water poured in , then icemaker is bad . ALSO , check to make sure the coils under refrig are clean of dust , lint , etc . Icemaker has to be 5 degrees to operate .
please switch off your refrigerator for at least 8 hrs. than again switch it on. if your problem is not cured than it is sure that your refrigerator have the blower problem because for this reason only, the problem arrises ....... please visit your service authority...........have a nice day:-)
This is usually an indication that the photo eyes are probably dirty. They "See" across the opening where the ice drops through. If they are dirty, it registers as a fill machine.
A bin stat can cause the same problem.
The eyes and sometimes be a major problem finding them getting to them. On smaller machines like this one, it's hard to get your hands on them.
Good Luck and hope this helps.
