i have same fridge with same prob makes 6 cubes of ice in a day with a lot of noise like you discribed also i have water collecting under crisper drawer of fridge i have to clean out water once a month or so still trying to figure out how to take ice maker out to fix
go back to your sales people this is under warranty and it's propably a system problem . don't void warranty . // hold on i thought the sysem had failed . ice maker must be 15 deg or lower . to work ... close the drawer and give it 24 and see what it will do . but it is still under mfg warranty . **** ..
First, the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator may have failed. You didn't mention if there is a water dispenser and whether or not this is still working. This valve pumps water to the icemaker and water dispenser when the control unit of the icemaker calls for water. Also, there could be a blockage in the line which brings the water to the icemaker.
The other possibility is that the part of the icemaker controls which calls for water from the valve has failed. If this has happened, it would likely be more cost effective to replace the icemaker unit.
I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a
frog sound. I found the solution.
My model number is 596.75523400.The sound will stop when the freezer is
opened.It will stop again when the
freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the
light.The ice drawer was full but it
had stopped making ice.
Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a
out the two freezer baskets
the freezer door from the two slide tracks.
the icemaker electric connection at the back wall.Depress the clips on the side of the
plug and wiggle it loose.
are 3 screws that attach the icemaker to the left freezer wall.Remove the lower screw and unscrew the
top two about ½ way out.
the icemaker up so the slots slip over the 2 screws.
the icemaker in the sink and run a bit of water on the frozen cubes until
they fall out.
the screwdriver and check the water inlet hose/pipe for ice that obstructs
the flow of water into the ice maker.
using the 3 screws and plug in the electric connector. Make certain the water inlet tube is
positioned thru the retaining hole before you remount the screws.
You'll have to read my in depth review on Epinions.com for answers. Sounds like you bought the updated version that over corrects the "too much" ice which jams the mechanism to where it breaks the unit. This is my second friggen Samsung as my 1st 4 door quatro was replaced under their lemon law. Spending $2500 I thought I was buying quaility, instead I bought greif. I'm still working with Best Buy to get Samsung to fix the icemaker with it's current problem which sounds like yours. Go to the Epinions website and look me up, my username is "walkerpkw" My review was posted last year. Read both my horrifying Samsung reviews. Something is very wrong with their engineering department. You'll find my email address on my profile page. I'd be happy to inform you if the get this fixed. I'm told it's the fridges computer board and they're redisigning another?
You may have a problem with the computer control board in the ice maker. Try this. Turn off the icemaker for about 2 minutes.
Turn on the ice maker and press the clear button. Press and hold this button for 12 seconds to get it to force extract. This will confirm that the motors will work and push the ice cubes out. Afterwards, let it run by itself. If it still doesn't make ice, you will need to replace the icemaker.
