Question about GALAXY Microsystems 25.4 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Filtered Ice and Water

1 Answer

Ice maker The ice maker stalls during harvest. It will complete cycle sometimes if given enough time. I believe there is a heater under the tray. I don't feel any heat when tring to harvest. Could this be the problem. Is it more likely the heater or the controls?

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.

Have replaced everything and ice maker still doesnt work model ed5shaxmb10


An ice maker has 3 basic tasks:
1. Call for water.
2. Freeze.
3. Harvest.
Then the cycle repeats. There will always be some sensors that determine timing of those tasks. Home units usually have a bin level sensor (often an arm that's lifted as the bin fills) that can be locked in the up position to disable the ice maker.

If it's calling for water but not freezing, make sure the condenser is clean. (Sometimes they look clean but are plugged in the middle.) It has to get down to nearly 0 degrees to efficiently make ice, if it's not getting cold enough you may need a tech to figure out why.

If there's ice in the tray but it's not harvesting, clean the tray, hard water deposits can make the cubes stick in the tray.

My ice maker has ice in the tray but not dropping in Ben,it is a kfil27cxmso there is a lite that sends a beam across ben ,how do I check to see if the bulb is blown or working, gk


Hello George;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

I live in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

All ice makers work in the same way.

Your fill cycle is working fine. You have a thermostat in your ice maker which tells your ice maker control module (Computer) that the ice cubes are frozen and ready for harvest. Then, then control module tells the cube tray heater to turn on for so many seconds, followed by the control module to activate the harvesting motor.

So, your ice maker either has a bad thermostat, heater or motor.

The beam across your freezer section is a safety device. On the right hand side is the transmitter. On the left hand side is the receiver with a plastic flapper. When you close the door the flapper closes and completes the signal to discharge ice. When you open the door the flapper pops out blocking the signal.

I have recently connected an ICEU300 half cube water cooled under counter ice machine. It produced about 5 trays of ice and then stopped producing. The compressor was still running, the water stopped


Anthony,
This sounds like a warranty situation. This would not be a install issue. You will need to contact your local service agent to check harvest assist motor.

WHY scotsman iec machine shuts down on the refridgeration light ON CM3 CONT


Is the machine producing ice thick enough to come off the evaporator plate? the machine will try to harvest 3 times before it locks out on long harvest. Harvest cycle: The compressor and hot gas valve are both powered during the harvest cycle. The fan and pump are off at this time. The machine stays in the harvest cycle until the evaporator thermistor senses 52 DEG F. If the bin is not full, the unit goes into another freeze cycle. I would check the Thermistor

Water leaks from ice maker


Good day,
When the ice maker harvests, near the very end of the harvest cycle, contacts in the ice maker send power to the water valve in the bottom back of the machine, for a period of 7 seconds, after which, the water valve must shut off smartly.
Appears the valve doesn't close fast enough, or completely.
The solution, is to replace the water valve. No repairs to it are possible.
Before doing that, make sure the fill tube is lined up properly going into the back of the ice maker.

Thank you for using FixYa

Most likely the thermostat # 27 in photo below is defective. It tells the ice maker to begin its cycle by sensing the water is frozen. It is a replacale part.

Ice maker quit working


check the teperature of the freezer compartment . the ice harvest actuates on teperature. and refill with water at the end of harvest cycle.. a lot of times the condensor under your fridge can become plugged with dust and the freezer teperature never achives low enough to harvest ice..good luck

Ice Maker water keeps running


Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.

Make sure the curtain is not torn and there are no leaks from the resivoir. If ok check to make sure you have enough water pressure to the machine. Make sure you have enough water passing through the valve during harvest cycle. To check... turn the timer cam to harvest cycle. Water should come in quickly behind the curtain on the right side and the timer should advance three minutes to freeze portion of cycle and stop running. Water should spray and form ice for approximately 25min. Then the timer advances for 5 minutes into harvest cycle and it refills with water again.
