Question about LG LRBN20510W Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

I have the LG LRBN 2051 refrigerator. The ice maker makes ice, but it only makes 2 cubes during each cycle (every few hours). Is there something I can do to fix this problem myself? What's wrong with it?

SOURCE: GE 25 side by side refrigerator ice maker problem

Assuming the temp inside the freezer is at around 0 or -2 degrees, it should dump ice every ~50 minutes or so. Again, depending on temp's, an Ice Bin should fill within 24 to 48 hours. If your freezer temp is running at around 10 degrees, everything will obviously still be frozen (below 32), but the ice maker will take longer to freeze the water than it would if it were at 0 degrees. Open both doors and place the palm of your hand on the partition between the freezer and Fresh Food compartments... (where the door gaskets seat when they're closed). The temp of the partition should be about 5 or 10 degrees warmer than body temp., If it's hotter than that, you found the problem. Either the condenser coils are dirty and need a good cleaning OR your condenser fan motor (the fan in back, near the floor in the compressor area) is failed or about to fail.

Colenoid in the ice dispenser may be clogged or have a small amount of trash in it. Is there a filter on before the fridge (just after the ice maker shutoff)?

Ice maker leaves 2 to three cubes on most dumps. then it stops dumping until they are removed


Check the the part called the cube rake. Its usually a white plastic piece with fingers that point to each cube mold. Its suppose to push the cubes out during the cube dump cycle. It sounds like a few of the fingers may be broken and not turning properly on the shaft to extract the cubes out of the icemaker. The rake should push the cubes out during the cycle.

Why is my ice maker is not making ice


Sounds like its not getting enough water to the ice maker tray during each cycle. Possible restricted water fill line, plugged water filter or low water pressure to the ice maker.

My icemaker on LG refrigerator is making very few ice cubes


Hello,

If the ice maker is producing ice poorly, making small cubes or too few cubes then it means your ice maker is probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that is not cycling properly.

First, check the water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure it is having a good water flow. If the flow is poor, that means you will have to, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water in the ice maker.

Second, check the water-inlet valve. You will need to replace the water inlet valve if it has failed.

Third, check the freezer temperature. It should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

Lastly, check the ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.

The above is what you need to check on........

I hope this helps....

Take care.

Ice maker does not make much ice. I just changed the water filter and reset the ice maker by turning it off. It just makes a few cubes in 24 hours.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. When an icemaker still makes ice but in a reduced capacity it is usually the result of other problems.

Either there is ice build up on the evaproator coils due a defrosting problem that you do not see or the evaporator fan motor is not running fast enough.

Here is a way to find out. Unplug the unit and use a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for at least 2 hours. This is a manual external defrosting that will rid the evaproator coils of any ice build up.

Plug the unit back in. Over the next 30 hours check to see if your ice made result is much more than before the manual defrost.

If this improves your ice made result then you probably have a defrosting problem with your unit.

You did not say if the cubes were smaller or not so I have to assume the cubes currently are normal in size and that water flow and ice maker fill timing are fine.

Check to make sure the water supply to the refrig is good and the inlet screen where the water line connects to the refrig is clean. You can change the amount of water fill by pressing the button on the left side of the ice maker. (indicator lights above button show setting) Selecting "Ice Plus" on front of dispenser panel increases ice production for a 24 hour period. Ice maker should produce 6 cubes per cycle, aprox.. 100 to 130 cubes in 24 hours depending on freezer compartment temp, room temp, number of door openings, etc.

This should fill up automatically. It takes 24 hours to have that basket full of ice cubes it might take longer depends on conditions. The arm inside is what controls the ice maker, make sure it's facing downward. Give it a change. You can take out the basket also to inspect problems. If you don't see what you any ice cubes in 24 hours then have that service. Or you can do it yourself if you want.

Be sure that the fill tube is getting into the ice maker and that the ice maker is not blocked with ice.  If everything seems ok, you may have a leaking water valve which causes it to constantly drip water into the ice maker causing the block of ice.

Found in the FAQ section on Samsung.com:
Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in line with most manufacturer specifications.
Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours.
If fewer than 50 cubes are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service. Please contact Samsung Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG to schedule a service appointment.
If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
  • Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
  • Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water supply line taps into your house water line.
  • If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.
If you want your freezer to produce more than 120 ice cubes in a day, try the following:
  • An ice maker typically makes 1 tray of ice every 90 minutes. To shorten the amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting.
  • If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to 12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from clean water.
