Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Samsung rf266aabp/xaa has a space compact icemaker somehow by removing the ice bin to clean it out i knocked out 2 square pieces one foam, one plastic plus there is also a rubber tube thing hanging down with a square thing attached to it. This assembly must control the water depth for the ice cube tray, because now thats messed up, but i cant find out where it goes, nor can i seem to find a parts manual to help me figure it out.

SOURCE: Icemaker doesn't work - no ice ejected

Krakus, there is no fuse in the dispenser assy., but there are two switches mounted on the control bracket. The posts on the brackets that hold the switches are really thin and it's possible that it broke. Therefore when you are pressing the lever you are not making the switch and sending the juice to the auger motor. Remove the dispenser cover by inserting a flat blade screw driver in the slots at the bottom. Pry out gently and the cover should pop off. Then slide it up and off. Now you will be looking at the control bracket and see the switches on the left and right side. See if the switch holder is broken. If this is the case your part number is 2183771. Not a hard job, just have to take your time. Im assuming that when you tested the auger motor you verified that the drive coupler was not broke. back

SOURCE: GE Microwave vent fan replacement

(I'm assuming you're talking about the hood / vent / exhaust fan instead of the internal magnetron cooling fan).

The part # SMV-260UA-C will not be enough to go on, as there at least 3 variations on that number shown at Samsung parts.

These microwaves are made by Samsung, but you'd need the GE part number to replace the whole thing. They don't sell the blades separately.

The part # for the "ventilation motor" is WB26X10042 and you can find it for $97.11 here, which is about fifty dollars less than direct from GE.

I may have available a replacement flan blade off a used unit. If you'll send me the dimensions, I'll check. I need the length of the fan blade, the diameter, and the inside diameter / shaft size, and whether the shaft is round or "D" shaped.

Please feel free to contact me directly.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Please provide the model number of the microwave, and we'll be able to supply the part info. (Some Samsung models with this problem were part of a huge recall).

(I also replied via e-mail)

Sorry, but the subject lines get cut off after so many characters.

Thanks for replying.

Part # DE63-00204A looks like a valid Samsung part number but it doesn't show up anywhere, so it's likely a proprietary part made only for GE and not available separately.

You can see a helpful exploded view of this model here.

Then you can go here and enter your model number and come up with the parts list. This site has much better prices than GE.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

Chances are you will end up having to but more than you want to, but not the whole door.

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

Samsung RS267LBBP icemaker tray will not return to the correct fill position

Hopefully the whole thing can be removed easily. Usually only a couple of screws holding it in place. Better to work on it at a table.
Once out, carefully remove the front cover and start checking electrical connections, many are just contact points, and when it gets jammed, it scorches a contact. If you can find the spot and somehow make it better it may work again. Otherwise, the timer section may be available at a repair shop or at

"space compact icemaker" cover fell off. How to put it back?

To replace this part, locate the two holes at the front of the top base of the ice maker, going up into the freezer ceiling. Place the two half-round 'pegs' at the top of the missing cover (above the vent holes) into these holes, then press the cover back into place. The peg protruding from the back of the piece should go into the hole in the ice maker housing, and the prongs will catch on the ice maker when you snap it into place by brute force. I wasn't strong enough to push it back on with one hand, but a stronger person did it in seconds once I explained how it should fit.

Hi, I think you need a new icemaker. What you described seems like water is getting in ice bin with the auger. Either to much water to icemaker and it overflows or if your talking about the rotating strip fingers for the icemaker is missing then yes that is the problem. If ice don't come out of tray and it still cycle it pour water on top of ice and into bin with the auger.

Why is the ice maker not droping ice / Mod. ET1FTTXKQ00 / Type C21TFA01 Whirlpool 08-01

Take a 4 inch piece of 14 gauge insulated wire and strip 1 inch of insulation off each end. Bend the wire into a U shape.Remove the plastic cover from the front of the icemaker. Insert the bare ends into the terminals marked T and H on the face of the icemaker. The wheel should move and dispense the ice into the bucket. If it does not move and drop the ice replace the icemaker.

Ice maker makes too much ice

In my Kitchen Aid bottom freezer there is a metal arm(?) that I lift up to stop the ice maker from making ice. When I start running low on ice, I push the metal arm(?) back down for it to make ice again. Hope this is the solution for your Kitchen Aid too.

Ice maker

This means that the tray is not getting cold enough to freeze the cubes. It must be no more than 12 degrees F for the icemaker to cycle properly.

Make sure your freezer is cold enough. If it is, then the other possibility is that the heater element in the icemaker (which thaws the cubes JUST ENOUGH for them to be pushed out when ready) could be stuck on. This can be easily tested, but the process is a little beyond the scope of this reply. Check this link
