SOURCE: Ice accumulating in freezer

There should be a tube that brings water to your icemaker from the back of the fridge into the icemaker. This tube is frozen with water, or the inlet where this tube feed the icemaker tray is frozen. The result is that water cannot go to the ice maker, and instead, goes over the top of the inlet area.

Verify that this is indeed what is going on.

The fix is to remove the blockage/buildup of ice at the inlet. You may have to detach the icemaker to get to it. Be carefull with electricity! Also be carefull as plastic can break under stress!
The tube may be frozen to the inlet, channel locks can be used to gently twist the tube to break it free.
Good Luck!

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Warmest settings are CCW and COLDER settings are clockwise on the control. Use the numbers as a reference point but... CCW = warmer Clockwise = COLDER
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Leakage of water from freezer


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the back of the freezer.

Our freezer is running continuously however the products in the freezer are beginning to thaw out... like the freezer isnt freezing anything.. what do you suppose that is?


Ok, I'll give quick solution for you. Tell your problems, I can confirm the problem actually comes from the freezer, due to excessive clotting in the freezer, precisely at the cavity insulation or air ducts from the freezer to lower the freezing container is covered by ice. so that the cooling in the lower container is not maximal.
How to repair:

If you understand and know where the refrigerator TIMER. you can set the timer to the defrost function. sign is the compressor will stop when the timer is set to defrost, the ice melting process by a part called HEATER , will occur in the Freezer.

If you do not understand, the easiest way is, Unplug your refrigerator electric outlet and allow you to not use the fridge for a while until you confirm yourself all the ice frozen in the freezer had melted. can be seen from a water reservoir that is located under your refrigerator. usually a tray that can be withdrawn. Ok then, hopefully this solution can help you.

Hello Sir, I am using a double door Haier refrigerator from last five years. It has two containers. The upper container is freezer and the lower container is refrigerator. Since yesterday, the lower...


Please check inside your freezer for the working of the fan and then check inside the lower area for the air flow from the freezer. If you notice that the flow is less it is possible that the air duct is clogged due to build up of the frost.If so then you must shut off the fridge for about 8-10 hours. Once you find that the frost has cleared up then put the fridge on after the cleaning was done. Now check if the air flow is good, if not check the duct and the fan assembly for poor speed. However if the fault is clear now then you must check if the fridge is shutting off after 8-10 hours for auto defrost. If this is not happening then the fault can recur. Hence check you timer unit the heater unit and the thermostat for fault. Also any wire break on the cooling coils side of the electrical wires to thermostat./timer or fan or heater can be a cause. Try this out and check . Good day

Motor running, but freezer not freezing items.Second hand fridge was working from 10 Feb 2010 stopped freezing on the 19 Feb 2010 Gold Star GR 252 fds


First of all you have to check if the fan is working properly because this is the one responsible for "taking the cold out" from the evaporator and into the freezer

Leak to under ice cube tray causing drawer to freeze shut.


May be your freezer evaporator drain hole is frozen. If this is the case, you can try to install a low heat drain hole heater into the drain hole and connect the wires with the defrost heater.

Ice maker doesn't make enough ice to supply two senior citizens. This is the 2nd refrigerator we have had installed this month. What can we do to increase the amount of ice it puts out. The ice bin has...


Found in the FAQ section on Samsung.com:
Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in line with most manufacturer specifications.
Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours.
If fewer than 50 cubes are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service. Please contact Samsung Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG to schedule a service appointment.
If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
  • Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
  • Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water supply line taps into your house water line.
  • If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.
If you want your freezer to produce more than 120 ice cubes in a day, try the following:
  • An ice maker typically makes 1 tray of ice every 90 minutes. To shorten the amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting.
  • If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to 12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from clean water.
