Samsung refrig model rf26xaebp stopped making ice but i still bet water thru the door


The solonoid valve for the ice maker may be faulty or the icemaker may be froze up. Try thawing out the icemaker with a hair dryer. If thats doesn't fix the problem you may have to replace the soloniod or ice maker control. Be sure the arm above thre the ice bin is in the down position. Hope this helps.

ICE MAKER WILL NOT MAKE ICE


Good day,
The first thing to check is the freezer temperature. If it is allowed to go above 15 degrees the ice maker will lock out by design.
If the freezer is O.K. then follow these steps to isolate the problem.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

I have a roper side by side rs22aqxgw03 model, made in 2001, ice machine not working but the water function is working on the front


Good day,
If you are getting water from the front then you can skip the step about checking for water to the machine.
However, a step by step procedure should get your ice maker working.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......

My Roper refrigerator collects water in both vegetable bins. Help!


Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Ice maker won't work


If you are sure that power is getting to the ice maker unit inside the freezer and you're sure that water is available for the ice maker...
Try these next steps:

Follow the water line for the ice maker back to the ice maker water solenoid
Follow the wiring from the water valve to its source - either a timer or circuit board
Check the timer and/or circuit board for any bad connections, burned connections and power to the board or timer. This arrangement can vary by refrigerator model number...

Roper Refrigerator, top freezer leaking water into refrigerator


This is usually caused by a plugged freezer drain. The back wall (or floor) of the freezer may come out to access the drain. Clear out anything visible and run a stiff wire thru it. Test with a cup of water. Hope this helps!

Ice maker not working


Depending on the ice maker style, they typically work off a motor timer. The timer motor rotates to set up the ice making process... starting with letting water into an empty ice mold tray, allowing ample time for that water to freeze and then to rotate that mold so that the cubes fall out into the bin. In conjunction with that process, a small heater is turned on to release the frozen cubes from the tray. The 'ice tray full' lever signals the system to stop making ice so you may want to verify that the lever is down and not causing the ice maker to stop, If that's down then I suggest you monitor the position of the motor gearset underneath an access cover. With power applied, the gears should rotate and cycle thru an ice making process. If it does and ice fails to fall out, your heater may be defective. Hope that helps...
