I have a samsung rfg298 refrigerator. I just changed the filter and have now noticed the bottom ice maker is not making ice. This happened at about the same time but don't know if it is related. How do I get the bottom ice maker working again?

SOURCE: the refrigerator icemaker does not make ice.

you have to hold in the ice type and the childlock button for about 6 seconds and that will take the filter light off. To reset the ice maker open the freezer door and then pull out the ice bin. on the bottom of the ice maker theres a button that you have to hold in to reset the ice maker. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa

SOURCE: freezer does not make ice

You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    Samsung RFG298 Freezer Drawer is not sliding out all the way.


    Look for an obstruction on the slide-rails, or ice building up on one of them... Maybe this will help, LG and Samsung use a lot of the same designs. (garbage)

    I have Samsung refrigerator RFG298 series the ice maker stopped working and sounds like a dog barking when it's running any ideas what it could be ?


    Possibly the gear drive faulty in the ice maker, or it could be the dispensing chute has ice blocking it from closing properly. Completely empty the ice tray and make sure there is no ice anywhere in the tray, guides or ejection chute to the front door. On some, there is a little button under the icemaker for testing and forcing an ice maker operation. Press it and see if the ice tray rotates and reloads with water.

    Top ice maker in Samsung RFG298AAPN does not make ice. No water cycles into icemaker. Icemaker has been reset, nothing after 2 days. Should I replace the icemaker or the water valve.


    On these models I've noticed that the temperature in the ice maker area warms up due to a ball of ice forming inside the freezer compartment ice maker fan that has vent going to the ice maker. Until it is found whether or not that ball of ice is blocking the vent and fan you won't be able to go to the next step. The switch on the ice maker will test the ice maker by filling it with water and rotating the Forks that dump the ice into the ice bin Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

    The ice maker is not working and the water dispenser is not working right. I've changed the filter,checked the water supply and reset ice maker and waited 24 hours. What's next?


    First make sure you have water going to refrigerator Samsung water filter heads go bad and won't let water thru or it could be the fill valve it's right near the filter

    You can search with your model number to see if a filter is available or not. Secondly unless the ice maker was damaged for sure it's likely that the fan is not running in that compartment or air is leaking into the refrigerator and making the ice maker think its not cold enough to make ice.

    My refrig stop making ice after I changed the water filter. I had the filter out for about 3 hrs, would this cause the problem?


    Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

    Take care

    Samsung Refrigerator makes ice, but then quits.


    I have this same thing happening, also. I have not been able to find a solution to this issue, however. The ejector blades push against the ice, apparently a gear pops loose with a loud clicking sound and the heater either does not work or never turns on. I end up killing the breaker to thr refrig,`removing the icemaker, letting it wrm up dumping the ice and putting it back in.

    Not making ice


    Hi: Change or just remove the water filter first. As your water dispensing slowed that is a clue. If the water filter is that clogged it will cause a problem with the ice maker. Plus the water you drink is not filtered anymore. City water is being run through 2 years of crud. If you don't replace it just remove it. I hope this helps, Jeff
