Question about Samsung RS2578BB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Samsung RS195BSBB Ice Maker not working properly. Ice tray fills with water, but Ice tray will not rotate to dispense ice. If I press and hold the black button underneath the mechanism, it tries to rotate, but clicks in place for a bit. It only dispenses ice when I gingerly help rotate the tray by hand. Any ideas what is wrong?

I have Samsung refrigerator RFG298 series the ice maker stopped working and sounds like a dog barking when it's running any ideas what it could be ?


Possibly the gear drive faulty in the ice maker, or it could be the dispensing chute has ice blocking it from closing properly. Completely empty the ice tray and make sure there is no ice anywhere in the tray, guides or ejection chute to the front door. On some, there is a little button under the icemaker for testing and forcing an ice maker operation. Press it and see if the ice tray rotates and reloads with water.

The ice make stopped working. There is ice in the water feed tube. The ice maker is full of ice, but it is not dispensing. Ice in the storage bin was frozen together into blocks.


The icemaker in it's operation hits a microswitch to turn on a warmer in the aluminum tray that aids in extracting the ice by the rotating vanes. It may be that that part of your icemaker has failed.

Try this for a solution first. Remove all of the ice from the bin. Using a hair dryer, melt the ice in the tray and the fill tube. Be sure to warm all of the switches behind the plastic front cap in case those switches are frozen. Let the ice maker fill again and see if you have made ice. Often splashed water will freeze the rotating vanes and will not let the ice maker rotate through it's complete cycle.

Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on.

On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice.

Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Thanks

Ice Maker Not Dispensing


I have fought with ice makers before and I find it to be easier when considering the time and trouble dedicated to troubleshooting and frustration of not having ice when you want it, to just replace the unit. You can purchase a replacement Ice maker for your fridge on-line for $85.00 plus shipping and handling. At the most you will have to remove 3 screws and unplug one electrical connection (please remember to unplug your fridge before attempting replacement) and your ice troubles will be over.

Don't buy another Samsung reffigerator. I won't. I and I will always tell everyone I know the same.

I paid over 1200.000 for my refrigerator in Nov 2006. It has never worked correctly. They have replaced everything on the back three times and it is still not working correctly. Since then the refrigator part is not cooling. Today is Sept 10 2008 and I am going to purchase a new refrigerator. It will never be Samsung again.
