SOURCE: ice maker not working; straining to rotate

Hi, I looked up your model and I see no filter listed. Does your owners manual suggest there is a filter?
Let me know please.

SOURCE: I have the samsung rs2577sl. the ice maker cube

Your model has the twist tray style icemaker. The part number for you front section that contains the motor assembly is DA97-00258E Ice Maker Assembly. You can try by taking it out and seeing if the tray will return to the home position but stopping there make me question if the thermal fuse in wiring harness may have blown. We may need to test that wire also to see if the thermal fuse is still good, I will leave you some of the links and ready to help when you need me, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker not getting water on new refrigerator


Check if the unit has a cold water dispenser that it will fill a cup. If so than problem is with Ice Maker. If not than problem is with water supply to unit.
If water to machine works make sure that the arm on the ice maker is in the down position. If it is up it will disable the ice making unit. Cycle the am a few times to insure that the switch connected to the arm has not gotten stuck in the off position.

On some ice makers there is a separate switch to disable the Ice maker usually right on the ice-maker not easily missed.

It is possible that the water feed tube into the Ice Maker has become frozen where it enters into the back of the freezer at the top. You can look through to see where the water fills into the cube tray. If ice is present it would be an indication that the feed tube has become frozen If suspected the safest way to fix would be to turn off the unit and allow for a manual defrost.

Next check the operation of the ice maker. Locate the arm in the up position prohibiting the ice maker from cycling. Wait three hours or more. Open freezer door and return the arm into the down position. After a few minutes you should observe the ice fingers rotating to release the cubes into the tray. If the fingers do not rotate I would suspect the ice maker or the connecting electrical circuit. Remember after dropping the arm the Ice Maker has to warm up to melt the ice cubes from the tray before the fingers are told to rotate,

If the fingers rotate then I would expect that the water supply solenoid has failed inside of the unit near to the location the the water supply is made. Replacing this part needs to be done by a qualified experienced technician.

Ice maker not working


Remove the front white plastic cover from the front of the ice maker, tape the freezer door switch down,Short T&H openings with an insulated piece of wire (14 gauge) to run the motor (hold the wire ends in the openings until the main gear start to rotate. If it doesn't start to rotate in a few seconds, try it again, before you replace the ice maker. If it starts to rotate, remove the wire and allow the ice maker toy advance, it should perform a complete cycle, including the fill.


Post back the results.

Does the dasher move on the ice cream maker or just the canister?


The dasher rotates, driven by the motor. The canister isn't supposed to move, but sometimes will depending on how thick the ice cream mixture gets. Presumably, if the ice cream were to freeze hard enough, the dasher would find it harder and harder to turn, until eventually the entire canister, with the dasher embedded in the ice cream, would start to rotate in the ice.

Ice maker makes ice but will not rotate and dump the ice.


You have a thermostatically controlled heat release ice maker. Any number of issues can cause a failure to "dump" the ice. The harvest is started when the thermostat closes. A motor rotates the ejector fingers which are at rest in the 2 o'clock position. The ice maker operation will stall until the heater releases the ice from the mold. After the cubes are ejected into the ice bucket, the water valve will refill the mold with water to begin the next cycle. Lack of ice dispensing could be a failed thermostat, heater, motor or switch contact withing the ice maker module. You could simply replace the ice maker and save the expense of the service call.

Ice maker not working


Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...

Ice maker cycling but getting stuck


Either you have a bad heating element (soften the ice to eject) or a stripped gear in Ice Maker either way it will have to be replaced by the time you buy the parts and install them you can just replace the ice maker as a unit
