Ice Maker problem

Hello,
I have a Samsung RS 2555SW/XAA side by side. The ice maker goes through the motions of making ice, however no ice comes out. I know the issue is with the ice tray not filing with water but what causes it?
Thanks for your time.
Dan

There is a water valve that "feeds" the ice maker. When the Ice maker makes ice it sends a signal to the water valve, it opens for approx. 7 seconds and fills ice tray with water. Another cause of no water in IM could be frozen water line where it feeds the IM.

Samsung RM255LABP/XAA freezer only gets to 27 degrees, won't harvest ice. Fridge and lower freezer work fine. After pressing the ice maker reset button, I hear a ding don sound coming from the control...


It won't harvest ice on its own unless it detects a temperature of 10 degrees. The ding ding sound is the control letting you know that the ice maker is functioning fine. Remove the evaporator cover in the freezer and make sure the coil isn't frozen over and the fan isn't restricted from turning. Check the door gasket is getting a good seal. If that's all good replace the sensor on the ceiling of the freezer.

KitchenAid Superba KSRG25FK Side by Side-where is the arm of the ice maker?


Hello ksraine,

I understand that you are looking for the arm on your ice maker. I believe you are talking about the ice makers that have the little wire arm that goes up and down as it makes ice to know when to stop making ice. The ice maker that you currently have installed on you side-by-side does not have the wire arm. Here is a picture of a complete ice maker that is factory installed on your unit -justinbur167.jpg Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

No water to ice maker.Ice maker quit making ice.


What I found was the problem was that I had not changed the filter on a regular basis.Because of this the water flow to the ice maker was restricted.What this caused was the water inlet tube on the ice maker to freeze up.On my unit it is a black rubber tube about 11/4 long on the right side.You can see it if you know what you are looking for.If you squeeze it you can tell if it is froze or not.You can use a hair drier to thaw it out or squirt water up into the tube .It does not take very long..To make sure it is clear disconnect the tube on the back of the fridge and blow into it.If there is no restriction the tube is clear.After you have determined the tube is clear add water to the ice tray so the unit will make ice this will start the ice maker to cycle.Its making good ice now.

Two issues


Well here is How I fixed My French Door Ice Maker, It made the same loud crashing sounds, and seldom put out much ice. To the point that it made no ice at all.

First, Make sure you can get water out of the front, if not, your water lines may be clogged.

The second thing you can do is hit the secret RESET button on the upper front side of the ice maker. See my first image for it's location, it is a soft rubber button.

The third thing.. In my case the reset button worked for a little bit. But eventually stopped. I had to remove the ice maker, and found that that several rows of ice had gotten stuck. The swinging arm that smacks the ice out would just strip the gears banging that ice to no avail. So opening the ice maker up and cleaning it out helped. I also cleaned the sensor contact with some alcohol. It is a thin metal strip close to where the gearing housing is. This I believe is ultimately where the problem starts. It allows the trays to get overfilled, and the ice can't be released. Once I cleaned out the tray of stuck ice, cleaned the sensor, plugged it back in, and hit the reset button once more, It was making loads of ice once again. If this fails, you can get a complete new ice maker online, I found a vendor on eBay selling it for a reasonable $80. You can use my pictures to see how to disassemble for repair ore replacement. My fridge by the way is the RF267AARS.

the part number is: DA97-05554A

It works with the following refrigerators
Samsung RF267AABP Samsung RF267AABP/XAA Samsung RF267AARS Samsung RF267AARS/XAA Samsung RF267AASH/XAA Samsung RF267AAWP/XAA

Ice maker


Hello Carol34,
I'd like to help you but you will first have to provide some additonal information. First off, did it ever work? Not sure what you mean when you refer to the 'part that goes down to release ice just stays down".. are you referring to the arm that shuts off ice making when the bucket is full? Please provide this information so that we can get your ice working again..
Thanks
