Check the arm on the ice maker. When the bucket is full it lifts the arm to stop the ice maker preventing overfill.

We have a Samsung RF4287HARS french door refrigerator. The ice maker seemed to not be working properly and I tried to pull out the ice bucket and it will not budge. Any suggestions as to why we can't...


I would suggest that the ice bucket has water around the base and that has frozen the bucket bin place . If you can, try filling the bucket with hot water to loosen the ice around the base.

What would cause my ice maker to leak into the plastic ice bucket?


The most likely cause is the fill valve is leaking and causing the ice maker to overfill. Try a new fill valve. Usually located on the rear of the appliance. (where you hook the water line to).

We emptied ice bucket to fill cooler. Now all we get is crushed ice and not cubes. I can switch buttons from crushed to cubes but still get crushed. Did we do something wrong when I pulled out ice bucket...


There is a metal rod under the ice bucket. This rod sticks out from the back of the bucket. Where it inserts into the ice shelf, you will see a small square hole. This is what changes it from crushed to cubed. It is an actuator that moves the rod to allow cubes to come out. Stick a screwdriver into the square hole and move the actuator up and down. Then reinsert the ice-bucket and that should fix the problem. Hope this helps.

Ice maker quit water line works intermittingly


icemaker quite? hire a new icemaker. industry joke sorry.
First things first, is it cooling ok? if yes then proceed.
im assuming it stopped making ice altogether, and not a matter of making ice but not dispensing.

If your ice bucket is located in the door itself, you have an electric eye icemaker system, which electronically determines if the bucket is full or not. this electric eye system, located on both side walls of freezer, consist of a transmitter board and a receiver board. you could have a problem with these boards, the icemaker itself, a bad water valve, or depending on the model year, a icemaker fill line that can get clogged with ice, but due to a faulty design, a fill tube heater must be installed.

if your bucket is not in the door, but located directly beneath the icemaker, then disregard the electric eye system info and the fill tube heater info as well.

there s a adjustment but it only controls /like 1 to 2 oz of water . its prbably the ice mker unit or the water valve . .. ice mker tell water how long to let water in and if valve is bak it might not shop off causing water fill . change water valve first . then ice maker if needed .. icemker might have a bad tray and some cubes do not drop / if so next fill will over fill causing problem . mm

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...

ICE WITHOUT PLUMBING


it really doesnt matter how full you fill the bucket. round cubes will probably dispense just fine if you have access to that shape ice. 
One additional thing, be sure to turn the icemaker off to prevent the fill valve from going bad and to keep it from making a loud buzz about every 10 minutes. thx peyton

Can i put ice in thee ice bucket in my american fridge freezer


you can put ice in the bucket and it will dispense. couple things though. if you use bag ice make sure it isnt wet when you put it in the bucket, the water will leak into the dispenser motor and cause it to short out also the ice will clump up causing the bucket to possibly break. if you are using ice out of a plastic tray dont try to use the crushed ice feature it also c an cause the bucket to possibly break.. peyton

Sub-Zero 632 Ice Maker Leaking into Ice Bucket


Ice Maker is overflowing and leaking into the ice bucket: There are several things to check for.
Go for the easy stuff first, make sure the icemaker is level, some of the plastic liner fridge's will move and allow the icemaker to tilt over and leak. Other troublemakers..... the fill valve
staying on and over filling the icemaker..... the finish sometimes comes off the icemaker body and all the ice cubes don't come out. This will allow the new water to fill on top of an icemaker
that still has a ice cube or two left inside the body, if you have had trouble with black specs in your ice cubes, this may have been the beginning of your finish problem on the icemaker body.
On the module style ice makers (Whirlpool, Maytag Family, Sub Zero) the printed circuit in the
module head often wears and the contacts become too long and allow the icemaker to over fill = new ice maker or new module head.

Older style icemakers: This gear is bad for breaking and the icemaker quits turning to eject the ice.
You can remove the front cover to see the gear.
This is a common parts breakdown of the older style icemakers

Water fill volume: The water fill adjustment screw will change the fill volumes by changing the fill time.
One half to one full turn usually ( approx ) is equal to 20cc ( 0.68oz ) to 40 cc.
The correct fill is usually 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).
When a water valve is replaced the fill volumes must be re-checked!
