Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a refrigerator model# RF267ABBP/XAA. The ice maker does not produce the amount of ice that the owners manual claims it will. Even though the ice bin is small the machine still cannot fill it within 2 days. There are only 2 of us using it & we have refrained from using it for several days & still not much ice. It also makes terribly loud banging noixes whenever it is preparing to dump a new load of ice. approximately every three second we hear a lod bang which continues for at least a minute & can be heard throughout the house. I have good water pressure to the ice maker & the filter is clean. when ice is made the ice is solid & the pieces are uniform. Can you help?

Without more infor.on how old the unit is, from your statement, the noise could come from the water ( pressure) and the valve opening and closing. I few things to check are - clean the coils ( condenser) . If the ice is clear and not sticking together the temps are good in the Freezer. On avg. 6 / 8 cubes per hour N 15mins. I suggust if you use a lot of ice -bag the ice leave the tray empty, count the ice in the moring and see how many cubes are made in the amount of hours ( say 11pm to 7am = 8 hrs. Be sure that that UNIT condenser is clean and the fan bladges too. Hint - if you use a lot of ice - if you have the room in the freezer,use small plastic cup ( 3 / 5 ozs) fill 3/4 full and use them in pitcher, or mixer for drinks . Enjoy the summer .

My Samsung refrigerator Model RFG297HDRS-XAA has 15-E code flashing.


Existing error codes for Samsung fridges run from 1 up to 13, in the majority of models as far as I could find out.
You might be having two error codes instead of one code
error 1 and Error 5.
Error 1 refers to 1. Ice Maker Sensor:
Ice Maker sensor connector missing, contact failure, electric wire cut, short-circuit, Ice Maker sensor failure.
Indicates an error when the temperature sensed by Ice Maker sensor is higher than 150 or lower than -58.
Error 5 refers to 5. Ice Maker Function Error:
Ice ejector and level failed three times or more.

Why don't my ice maker work


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the ice maker is not working in your Frigidaire refrigerator, even though you have replaced the ice maker and the water valve. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the ice maker is not producing ice. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

GE 18.0 Cu. Ft. CleanSteel Top-Freezer Refrigerator - GTL18JCPWRBS Water isn't going to the ice maker even though the water supply is on


Locate and replace the water filter. It should be covered in the owners manual. If that is not the problem, then the solenoid that turns on the water supply is shot, at which point you are probably better off just buying a replacement ice maker.

I have a Whirlpool Model EC3JHAXRL00. The ice


Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on
models) in the OFF position?
 Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned on?
 Has the ice maker just been installed? Is the freezer
temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours
after ice maker hookup for ice production to begin. Allow
3 days after ice production begins to completely fill ice
container.
 Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on.
 Has a large amount of ice just been removed? Allow
24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
 Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter
may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
 Is an ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
For models with an interior ice bin, remove the ice from the
ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? Make sue your connections are secure.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!

Ice maker doesn't make enough ice to supply two senior citizens. This is the 2nd refrigerator we have had installed this month. What can we do to increase the amount of ice it puts out. The ice bin has...


Found in the FAQ section on Samsung.com:
Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in line with most manufacturer specifications.
Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours.
If fewer than 50 cubes are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service. Please contact Samsung Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG to schedule a service appointment.
If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
  • Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
  • Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water supply line taps into your house water line.
  • If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.
If you want your freezer to produce more than 120 ice cubes in a day, try the following:
  • An ice maker typically makes 1 tray of ice every 90 minutes. To shorten the amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting.
  • If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to 12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from clean water.
