Samsung RM255LABP/XAA freezer only gets to 27 degrees, won't harvest ice. Fridge and lower freezer work fine. After pressing the ice maker reset button, I hear a ding don sound coming from the control...


It won't harvest ice on its own unless it detects a temperature of 10 degrees. The ding ding sound is the control letting you know that the ice maker is functioning fine. Remove the evaporator cover in the freezer and make sure the coil isn't frozen over and the fan isn't restricted from turning. Check the door gasket is getting a good seal. If that's all good replace the sensor on the ceiling of the freezer.

Water leaks from freezer compartment onto the floor. Ice forms on bottom of freezer, then melts onto the floor.


In addition to the the other answers, also check to make sure your ice maker is not leaking around the the equipment box. Except for water on the floor, I had the same problem as you did, ice in the bottom of the freezer. It turned out to be the ice maker leaking, which is a common problem with that particular ice maker. I bought one on line and replaced it myself. If that is part of your problem, I can give you instructions on replacing it. It's not too hard.

I had the same problem. The ice maker started leaking water into the ice storage bin. I had to replace the ice maker. I did it myself and it’s easy. I ordered one over the internet. Here’s the link to the Sears parts: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/Kenmore-elite-Refrigerator-Parts/61005508/0046/464/Model-59676603600/0583/0161000.html
You’ll see three adjusting screws on the side of new ice. They preset at the factory so don’t touch them!
Ice maker replacement Instructions for bottom freezers: First, use your refrigerator to store the frozen food because it will only take you about 30 minutes to replace the ice maker. Unplug the power. Lift the ice maker wire switch to shut it off. One step no one tells you about but makes the job much easier is to remove the freezer sliding door. Remove the wire mesh storage tray in the freezer. Then with the drawer door pulled out, lift it up slightly with the handle, which releases it, and slide it out of the rails. Now you got it made! Carefully pull the front plastic cover off the ice maker. When you pull on it, you will see it separate from the rest of the machine. It simply snaps off and on the maker. You may need it for you new machine. Mine did not come with one. Unplug the wiring harness from the top back of the freezer. There are two hex head screws that hold the ice make to the side of the freezer. Unscrew them and the ice maker is free to remove. If your new maker did not come with the wire switch, simple pull the old one out of each side the switch mechnisiam and slide it into the new one. Now reverse the above steps to install your new maker. It may take an hour or so for it to start operating, just be patient. You may want to just sleep on it?

GE refrigerator is not making ice


There are several types of ice makers with the same model number. Some of my questions may seem over - the - top, but I do not know your level of ability. Do not take offense.

Did this ice maker ever work before, or is it a newly installed maker or a factory installed maker in a new fridge? Have you moved the power switch to on? If yours has an LED power indicator, is it off, blinking or on? Off means there's no power to the maker - you'll need to get the maker powered up before going further (make sure the electrical power connector is mated fully). Blinking means cubes have become stuck in the maker. You'll have to shut the maker off, remove the cubes then power up again. On means it is powered and is working normally. Is the freezer compartment set to maintain a temperature lower than 15 degrees F (-9 C)? The ice maker will not make ice unless the temperature is below 15 F (-9 C). The space under the maker must remain clear of obstructions so that the sweeper arm is not blocked (when blocked indicates a full ice container and will halt ice production until the arm can move freely again). The maker may need as many as 3 cycles (approx 6 hours) before all the air in the ice maker's water lines have been purged completely.

Listen for the solenoid valve to operate. Every couple of hours, this valve should operate and an audible click on and click off heard after a several seconds (as long as set on the ice maker cube size adjustment knob). When this solenoid has clicked on, water should be flowing through the lines and filling the ice maker. If not, there is an obstruction that must be cleared. A dirty or improperly installed filter, pinched line, and even ice can interrupt flow to the ice maker. You might need to remove the ice maker from the freezer to check the water supply line that feeds it for the presence of ice. Melt / clear as needed.

LSC27926ST REFRIG/freezer. Ice maker is leaking water that freezes on items in freezer, ice is messed up and had to unclog ice maker. Still a logjam of ice around ice maker. has been churning out ice...


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn't take much to eventually block the fill tube.

I have a ge refridgerator side by side model gsh25kgmd bb. I bought it in 2002. The issue is, the ice maker. It has stoped working. I notices there was a lot ice build up in the back below the ice...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

I have a refrigerator, model # g2ixefmws02, model # ey5001551.i would like to remove the ice maker, i don't use it, and it takes up freezer space. can it be removed without any effects to the freezer...


Yes, you should be able to remove this, by unscrewing the ice maker unit, and then un plugging it from the harness. Turn off the water before you remove the ice maker (if its connected to a water supply). Years ago, most refrigerators were "equipped for optional ice makers", so no harm will come by removing this unit. To be extra cautious, tape the harness on the freezer side very well with electrical tape, and make sure it stays out of the way of the contents of the freezer.

Ice maker is over filling


Hi there,

Ice maker has adjustment on right side of power head. If ice maker is inside on upper left, you can remove white cover from it and the adjusting screw in on right. Turning counter-clockwise will decrease fill by 1/2 to 3/4 of ounce. Sounds like a small amount, but ice make only uses 4 ounces per fill. If this does not fix, try replacing fill valve. If ice maker ice bin is in the freezer door, you have to remove cover to ice maker in the top of freezer. Ice maker is screwed into top of freezer and need to be removed to take off cover to adjuster screw. same procedure for reducing water flow time as above.

Thanks

Can the refg.be re-wired?


U-lines needs the icemaker to work properly. By doing what you did you would void all warranty. The controls are in the icemaker so the original parts would not work the way you want it to.
