Top ice maker in Samsung RFG298AAPN does not make ice. No water cycles into icemaker. Icemaker has been reset, nothing after 2 days. Should I replace the icemaker or the water valve.


On these models I've noticed that the temperature in the ice maker area warms up due to a ball of ice forming inside the freezer compartment ice maker fan that has vent going to the ice maker. Until it is found whether or not that ball of ice is blocking the vent and fan you won't be able to go to the next step. The switch on the ice maker will test the ice maker by filling it with water and rotating the Forks that dump the ice into the ice bin Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

Is it OK for ice thickener sensor touch water on ice maker


Yes, it has to touch the water. As the ice builds up the thickness sensor moves up and turns of the refrigeration and turns the heater on.

    Icemaker stopped working


    Hello varjr - If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, try checking the following:

    1. It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.


    2. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.



    3. When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!


    4. Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

    Should this suggestion prove to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

    Ice maker stopped dispensing


    Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

    Ice maker issues - what to do next?


    I have not found Kenmore to do the best with the icemakers; however, you want to make sure that the lever on the side was replaced properly. They have a slot that they need to go into. The other thing that is important is to see if the motor is running on the ice maker. It could be at fault, but if that is the case those units usually are better off replaced as a whole, which runs around $200. You will probably get them cheaper through an appliance dealor rather than going through Sears and there probably is one in your yellow page section of your phone book...hope this helps.

    Ice machine isn't working


    Two things come to mind.

    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.

    My ice maker is not owrking nor does the door ice dispenser work. does the whole icemaker need to be replaced? or is there something else to try


    Sounds like the control module has gone u/s or you have a blockage which overloads the motor and causes it to shutdown in order to prevent damage occurring. Check there is no ice jammed in the dispenser and make sure that the water filter is clean and replaced every 6 - 9 months. if not then call a service engineer as either the motor, inlet valve and / or control module will need replacing.

    GE Icemaker PFSS6PKXASS


    To reset the filter light you need to hold the button in for 3-5 seconds , the light will usually flash while you hold the button down then it will go solid and then go out once you release the button. The ice maker will only make ice when the freezer is cold enough approx -14c . Did it make ice ok before ? There is the possibility that when changing the water filter air got into the system and has not bleed out of the ice maker feed tube yet.
    The Ice maker can usually be put into a test mode by turning it off , wait 30 secs then turn it back on and press the ice level sensing paddle back three times within 15 secs of switching the ice maker back on . The ice maker should then go through a forced harvest cycle and ask for water at the end of it.
    Hope this helps

    Ice maker repair and still no ice


    • The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser . The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, 
    • or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
    • Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. 
    • In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. 
    • Note: The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
    btw- you can replace the whole icemaker system for around  $115.00. 
    • charging you $250 for a $20 drive motor is ridiculous! my 12 year old son can change the drive motor in 15 minutes.
