Re: ICE machine won't turn off!!

To turn off the icemaker, raise the metal arm all the way to the top so that it stays in the off position. You can remove it completely by taking out the screws that hold it to the cabinet and unplugging the wiring connector.

I have a Samsung refrigerator with a bottom freezer. The 'fridge and freezer temp settings are displayed on a panel between the upper and lower doors. The unit is about 4 years old. About a year ago,...

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.

Relax, some people exagerate was all I was saying.
Anyhow, go to a good parts store and ask for a Supco EDT (Electronic Defrost Timer) replacement as they are more reliable and not much difference in price.

Ice Maker quit, everything started to thaw out.

Good day,
Limited information. The ice maker will go into auto lockout if the freezer goes above 14 degrees.
Motors make noise.
There is a fan motor behind the back wall, of the freezer compartment. If the machine is turned on, it should run, and you should be able to hear it.
If not, remove the rear panel and inspect.
The second fan motor, is located in the back rear of the machine, behind the rear cover, it should be running as well.
If both are running O.K. then it is in the compressor itself.
A pricey problem, if it's the compressor. Should be checked by a qualified tech.

P.S. If you feel it is a compressor problem, and the unit is less than 5 years of age, then contact your selling dealer. It would be under warranty.

Compressor not starting
