Sorry to tell you that LG makes the worst refrigerators of all time. The control panels have CONSTANT problems. I suggest you buy a home warranty that covers refrigerators.I had the big 31 CF Kenmore (made by LG). Sears came out THIRTEEN times trying fix it. They replaced the coils twice, the control panel twice and the refrigerant-line fluid filter 3 times. Finally they gave me $1000 to throw it away.
AS A WARNING TO SHOPPERS!!!!!!! You should stay away from high efficiency refrigerators!! They gain that efficiency by reducing the cooling capacity. The walls of heat exchanges are much thinner, leading to leaks. Ask any fridge repairman. All this leads to breakdowns after only a few years of service, because they are so fragile..

The ice maker will make the ice but I have to manually press the reset button to have the ice dump into the tray. It will not dump ice on its own. This is for the samsung RF217AB french door bottom...


Make sure the freezer is cold enough. If not this might cause problems of poor dispensing.
If your ice makes unit has a 'heater'build into it, it just might be that the heater in the tray does not work..if so, new ice tray dispenser.

Lfx25978st ice tray stuck


This sounds like a thermostat in the ice maker has failed. Unfortunately, LG provides no replacement parts for the ice maker. They say to just replace the assembly, so there is no alternative other than ice maker replacement. Here is the ice maker to order.

Could be an open circuit to the ice tray sensor. This is the wire under the ice tray. It is flexed during each cycle and can fatigue easily. I found this condition on a three year old unit. A simple solder repair and heat shrink tube corrected the problem.

Ice maker is not working - sensor bar rolls up but no ice in ice maker - no water in ine trays


Sound like it is the dual water control only. Try filling ice maker with tap water and then let freeze. If after the ice in the ice maker dumps the cubes into the ice container and does not refill I would think the water control valve is at fault. I see your model had three different choices of water control valves and listed on this page=> Here and in right sidebar about 1/3rd down the page you will see three different water control valves. Here is your Service Manual=> LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator Try this test first because you mentioned no water in trays. Let me know what results you get and if you have more questions feel free to ask, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Samsung Refrigerator makes ice, but then quits.


I have this same thing happening, also. I have not been able to find a solution to this issue, however. The ejector blades push against the ice, apparently a gear pops loose with a loud clicking sound and the heater either does not work or never turns on. I end up killing the breaker to thr refrig,`removing the icemaker, letting it wrm up dumping the ice and putting it back in.
