Question about Samsung RB215LASH

1 Answer

A while back I purchased a Samsung model RB 215 Refirgerator /Freezer. Works well except that the ice in the bin seems to clump or stick together after it has been sitting for a while. The freezer door is seldom opened, maybe once every two weeks or so. It's in our basement and used as beer and food storage. Is it possible that the door seal is bad? Any suggestions will be appreciated

My ice maker on model#rf267aers keeps getting clumping together ice in the bin? Also notice Ice cycles from top area when bin is removed? how to dis assemble or what part might need to be replaced?


defrost cycle will cause ice to melt slightly and stick together. If it happens too often, it may be cycling the defroster too often. That may be caused by opening the freezer too often.

Why does Ice in ice maker sticks together, forms clumps. Jams, then kicks latch open


I'm pretty sure there's an owners manual section on adjusting the ICE-MAKER's fill level... (url @ bottom)

Every-other caution SEZ
"Thou shalt not RESET more often than 24 hours"

Over-filling can cause the cubes to be strongly connected... and cause clumping issues in the bin...

Also look to see that the cubes are not hollow... that is a different adjustment.

Make small adjustments... you will be happy...

Big (evidently FREQUENT) adjustment can cause more trouble than inviting the Samsonite gorilla in to SERVICE your appliance...
(I'm just saying)

Ice maker makes ice but will dispense through door. Checked and it is not clogged.


Good day!!!

This could be because the ice is clumped in the ice bin. When the automatic defrost cycle occurs, heat is transferred to the freezer area. This can cause the cubes to melt slightly and refreeze back together. You can take the bin out and give it a good shake, or simply discard the cubes and start over with a fresh batch of ice cubes. By increasing the amount of food in the freezer compartment, you may be able to buffer the heat that comes from the defrost cycle and avoid clumping issues. If you have a large ice bin and hardly use any ice, it is possible that the cubes have gotten stuck together just from the weight of the cubes on top of others.

I hope this information will be helpful...Thanks for using fixya...

Ice doesn't come out into glass. Makes some ice but is larger pieces stuck together or flat pieces in bottom of container. Green light in back of container is on. I set the freezer to colder temp but...


You are not using enough ice.
You may need to dump the bin every week or so and keep fresh ice in the bin.
When you go through several defrost cycles the ice tends to eventually melt and stick together.
