Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

How do I Prevent ice dispenser from freezing up? Ice is in the ice bucket but will not disperse.


The ice stays in the cubemaker tray for a set time and then empties into the bucket. If the freezer was too warm the ice wasn't frozen enough when the cube maker emptied it and it all stuck together. Now the fridge is cold again empty the bucket, make sure there is no ice stuck in the dispenser and try again. If it is a Samsung fridge do the above and turn it off for 30 seconds and back on again. Sometimes the controller and display freezes and reads the wrong temperature.

EW28BS71ISC makes ice too slowly. Can I decrease the cycle time by changing the circuit board settings?


The ice maker should harvest every 2 to 3 hours. if no ice was used it will take 2 to 3 days for the bucket to completely fill. Remember im's in refrigerators are for convenience not production.

I have noticed that my ice maker is not filling up.. i emptied and then put it back on again.. barely any ice is filling in the bucket.. its been 24 hrs.. what could be the problem? Iam not sure of the...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Is it filling all the way to make a full tray? If not you may need to replace the water filter. If the water pressure to the unit is low it will slow down the icemaker also. I would start with the filter and water pressure. The only other thing is the thermostat in the ice maker but if the freezer temps are ok and the icemaker is producing some ice im sure the thermostat is ok.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

The freezer isn't making alot of ice. Can the hose behind the ice maker freeze?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

When a refrigerator slows down ice production it is usually the result of poor air-flow through the evaporator coils. The poor air-flow is due to ice build up on the evaporator coils. The ice build up happens because the unit is not defrosting properly or the evaporator fan is not running at full speed.

To answer your question "Can an Ice-maker tube freeze?" Yes, they can and do freeze but when they do freeze that is caused by a defective inlet water valve that is leaking water by when it is supposed to be shut off. It can freeze if some one set the temp control to MAX cold. Additionally when they do freeze and the Ice-maker cycles the plastic hose on the back of the unit pops out of the ice maker tube and each cycle starts porting ice maker fill water on the floor.

This may sound odd.. but. Perform a manual defrost by removing the freezer contents and directing a fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (Makes a water mess so do not leave it unattended) The return the unit to normal service and after 8 hours start watching the amount of ice produced. (Should be normal for 2 days!) If after 2 days the ice production slows again you have an automatic defrosting problem that is causing the ice build up on the evaporator coils.

If you need any more assistance please include your complete model number in any future responses.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

My ice maker stop working


Knowing how an ice maker works can greatly increase your ability to diagnose and repair it. Just like vehicles, ice makers all may look different but they all work on the same princible. A thermostat starts the ball rolling, turning on a motor and a heater to loosen the ice, as the ice dumps a trigger fires up the water valve and refills it. The whole thing comes to a halt and waits till the thermostat gets satisfied once again.
So what can go wrong? The ice maker will give a clue. If their is ice in the ice maker but none in the bucket that is an ice maker failure. If the ice mold is empty and no ice in the bucket then the water valve is bad.
One thing you can do is get a bottle of water and fill the mold. If it kicks out a batch but no more, water valve replacement needed. If it don't then ice maker problem. If you have shelling or fouled cubes, look for dirty coils below the ice box that make for faulty cooling. Ice forms at 32f but ice mold tstats don't kick in the afterburners till 25f. I have some more detailed tips with videos and manuals: HERE

My icemaker in my large French door Samsung refrigerator takes forever to make more ice. Is there some way to increase ice production? It takes 2 to 3 days to fill up the ice bucket. There is nothing in...


There is no way to speed it up..
If the bucket is empty - 2 to 3 days to fill is normal..
It takes somewhere around 37 minuets for new cubes to freeze,, then dump.. Cant make the ice freeze faster..

If it has a inline filter on the water line - replace it.. If it is clogged it could slow the water that is going in..

If you-all use allot of ice and empty it before it catches up - I would suggest getting a bag of ice from the store and put some in the bucket to keep the ice level up..

Have a nice day...

Drain pan underneath fridge is filling on a daily basis


The system is designed to evaporate that water using the warmth of the compressor.. is your compressor warm ? (the drip tray sits on top of it) I see that model has an Ic e maker... to check that the ice maker refill is not running on too long, switch off the ice maker, by lifting the wire arm that checks the level of the ice in the storage bucket.. leave it turned off for a day or two.. empty the drain pan, and check it again after 24 hours.. but if the ice is already full, the water problem may APPEAR to be resolved already, but will return when the level drops and the ice production begins again.
If it is just condensate, then the drain pan should be able to contain the amount it produces, but 3-days straight, would indicate to me, that is not that... if your water pressure is good, it may be that the ice tray filler solenoid is being held open a fraction too long (maybe a second or so) and as the fridge is new, it will be making lots of ice to fill the container up,... so lots of small overfills.. mounting up to a full drain pan. Under normal use,.. other than parties and festive nights, when you use a lot, the water should evaporate faster than it is produced, but it shouldn't be happening at all.. if it is that, then turn the tap at the back of the fridge to where the cold water dispenser slows down slightly.. that should be enough to prevent it continuing.. IF that's the problem.
