Hey this problem sounds familar.I live in guyana and believe me it is a hot country.if you open the fridge door often then it would not build up sufficient coldness,in freezer compartment(because the air circulates in fridge.another issue,you need to ensure the ice tray in in all the can also adjust the temperature settings higher is fridge and freezer compartment.this would solve your problem.

Kenmore 106.55242400 ice maker knocking noise

most likely you need a new ice maker,one thing that could do this is the white arms that spin around when dumping the ice,sometimes one of the arms bend and jam the ice maker and you'll hear that knocking soundthe arm gets bent,the ice cube gets stuck because the arm can't push it out,,it stops the motor from spinning through it's full cycle and damages it but this is just a guess from something i've seen happen but most likely you need a new ice maker,one other i've seen is the metal arm that you can lift up to shut off the ice maker gets knocked out of the hole it slides into.if you pop off the white cover and get a jumper wire and stick it into the h and t holes you can jump start the ice maker.

This sometimes happens with my KitchenAid ice maker.
Usually there is a piece of ice stuck on the side where the sensor is that causes the ice to drop. I usually carefully chip away at any ice that is stuck. Once the stuck ice is removed, the ice maker works fine.

Ice maker is slow to make ice. It dumps sometimes. it builds a large mountain of forzen ice that mounds up under the tray. even though we remove it it always comes back. ice is also runnig down the...

Ice maker problems are almost always a problem. Sometimes I will locate an issue and fix it and then it will work for a short period and then break again. So, now I just replace the ice maker as a general rule. This is much more likely for success. However, the replacement ice maker is often not an exact match. And again, the this and the that sometimes causes problems. I will never accept a new customer on the grounds that I am going to fix their home ice maker. Make sure the ice machine is getter water like it is supposed to. Check the filter and the tubes. If the problem persists, get a new ice maker. If that ice maker angers you, get some ice cube trays.

Ice maker running water into bin and ice is freezing over the top of the mold before dumping ... now it won't dump the ice

Most likely your water control valve for the ice maker side is not shutting completely. sometimes it's slow enough to freeze the fill tube shut and sometimes the valve is worn out and not seating. Let me see if I can find some parts I did not thaink Samsung Had a RB2 I was thinging. I'll check but you double check too. be back soon RS2155

My freeser is not making ice

If it just plain stopped making ICE then obviously the water source must still be connected, but it could be that the piping where it comes into the back of the FREEZER compartment could be frozen. If that is the case, simply take the ice maker out, the tubing will come with it. Rinse it out, warm water and reinstall. Sometimes the ICE THAT IS WAITING to be dumped into the ICE hopper will not dump correctly into the hopper, so in that case, just reach up in the ice maker and jiggle loose/out all the loose ice and sometimes it will start working. You may try jiggling some of the solid ice that is still in the ice maker, as it may have jammed the ice maker when it expanded when it froze. Be gentle in all cases, do not get harsh with the machine and success should be yours with 30 minutes to 60 minutes maximum work. Cheers................ :-)0774a49.gif

Ice maker is inop. There is water to the door dispenser but not to the ice maker.

It’s more likely that your 61005626 Dual Outlet water control valve has become defective on the side that turns the water on for the ice maker. Sometimes the ice maker is the reason for this problem. The ice maker has a temperature thermostat that sometimes goes bad and will not tell the water control valve to come on after dumping the ice and the end of its cycle. The part number for the temperature thermostat is 627985 you can test the ice maker to see if the thermostat is bad by filling it with tap water and allowing the water to freeze. If after freezing the ice maker cycles and dumps the ice but does not refill with water then the water control valve needs to be replaced. Try that test and let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze
