If there were ice cubes in the ice machine and it was doing nothing, then the ice maker is bad and you will need a replacement. This happens unfortunately. It is nothing that you did with the hair dryer tho. If I have misunderstood the problem I will gladly help further pending more information :) gl!

I have a Samsung Refrigerator with an ice maker in the left door. The ice maker has ice all over it and is frozen and wont make ice. Can I use my hair dryer to defrost?


It is a fact that a hair dryer, used judiciously, and an ice pick, also used carefully will do a great job of defrosting. Unfortunately, if Samsung becomes aware of your use of a hair dryer they will claim "Internal damage" which voids your warranty if you have one. Their claim is ludicrous as their own technicians are advised that this action on their part is acceptable. Be aware that Samsung is well known to be a company that rarely supports their customers. Sad but true is the fact that there are currently over twenty five thousand (25,000) complaints on the internet on the subject of Samsung ice makers alone.

How to remove plastic bag stuck in ice maker


Depends on where the bag is stuck at, just frozen or got wrapped around the cube eject mechanism....if its just frozen then get your hair dryer and melt the ice around it. If it's wound around the mechanism you'll have to remove it from the freezer and after you get it out defrost it and just try and pull the plastic out don't pry on it with anything. Most ice makers are really pretty easy to get out, they just plug into the back of the freezer

Kenmore Coldspot side by side ice maker not working, red lite bliking


Often I find your ice maker on the Kenmore side by side thefill tube frozen. The fill tube is ablack rubber hose located above and to the right of your ice maker. Simplypinch the tube to see if it frozen solid. If it is, use a hair dryer set onmedium to defrost the fill line. http://www.on-timeappliance.com/kenmorerefrigeratorrepairdallastx.html

Model was bought 1/92. Ice cube maker not working although we hear a churning sound that seems to signal something's trying to work! What do you think? KitchenAid KBRP20EMSS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator


Those ice makers get stuck from frozen ice portions. Try feeling around to see if anything in the icemaker is frozen up or any foreign object. Please do this with fridge unplugged. If you can't find any frozen or other obstruction then use the hair dryer to defrost the ice maker. This is only a guess from past experiences. My kids once put pop cicle sticks in the ice maker wanting to make ice cube on a stick. Goodluck Google burdfrenzy
