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

3 Answers

Defective ice maker dispenser

I have a Galaxy side by side refrigerator freezer, model 10656502400.  That's the number inside the refrigerator side.  The trap door thing doesn't close all the way causing air to get inside the freezer itself and makes LOTS of frost over everything.  I've tried taping it shut, but would like to find the parts necessary to repair it.

    The solution was a link to a site where I could order parts. It did not list any Galaxy refreigerator-freezers, and I do not even know what part I need in order to make the "trap door" close all the way.

    None of the 3 solutions I have received answered my questions at all.  I'm sorry I subscribed to this service because it seems that you are not knowledgable about ice maker repairs at all.


  • mpgrantham Aug 13, 2008

    Nope...that isn't it. I've already tried that. I even got a hair dryer and melted any ice that might be in the dispenser or in places that I couldn't see. I have tried everything you suggested and have finally called an appliance repairman who says that is a common problem and usually requires the spring or other parts to be replaced.  He is coming today and will certainly charge a lot more than I paid you; so I'm sorry your solutions didn't work.


  • mpgrantham Aug 13, 2008

    I must not be explaining my problem clearly.  There is NO ice build up and even with the ice compartment completely out of the refrigerator and hot air from a hair dryer blown into all areas of the door, the flap just does not close.  The rerpairman I'm going to have to pay a fortune to come said there's probably a broken spring inside the door.  I'll let you know what he says for sure so that you can give that solution to others who have this problem.  In the meantime, remove me from your site because my problem is taking up too much of your time.  I'd like my money refunded also, as you offered.




    Thanks

This could be because the ice is clumped in the ice bin. When the automatic defrost cycle occurs, heat is transferred to the freezer area. This can cause the cubes to melt slightly and refreeze back together. You can take the bin out and give it a good shake, or simply discard the cubes and start over with a fresh batch of ice cubes. By increasing the amount of food in the freezer compartment, you may be able to buffer the heat that comes from the defrost cycle and avoid clumping issues.


If you have a large ice bin and hardly use any ice, it is possible that the cubes have gotten stuck together just from the weight of the cubes on top of others.

Water dispenser does not shut off


That is most likely a dual water control valve stuck open on back of refrigerator near floor. One side feeds ice maker and other side feeds the water dispenser. If the ice maker side began to leak slowly it would create quite a mess of ice flowing over ice maker and freeze every place it could inside the freezer.

Siemens Refrigerator model KA58NA70NE The ice maker section is not working. Please advice how to fix it.


I had the same problem and fixed it by changing freezer fan found underneath the freezer inside body, just behind the ice delivery/crusher motor. You need to open all the inside upper components like ice dispenser, ice maker, ice crusher motor, lamps assembly and finally the rear upper inside body cover. First, check whether or not the fan has strong air ventilation before trying to change the ice maker fan motor.

My ice maker makes ice in my side by side refrigerator but the door on the dispenser sticks and won't open..... the ice then falls out when you open the freezer... any thoughts?


You have a solenoid actuator that opens that door electrically. Sounds like it is rusted shut or the coil is defective. would need to have your model number to tell you the part numbers. Thanks Sea Breeze

Whirlpool indoor ice maker not making ice


Could not locate your model number. However, Check fill tube for icemaker inside the freezer. Iced solid? replace water valve. No ice in fill tube? Get correct model number and resubmit your request.

Water will not flow into ice maker


This could be 2 reasons for this The water control valve on back for the ice maker is defective or the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. You can pore water into an empty ice maker and let it freeze. If it cycles and does not refill with water I would say that the water control valve is defective. Your refrigerator has 2 dual water control valves one is for the water filter assembly the one on the back is part number 61005626
Let me know what you find, Thanks sea Breeze click link below and enter model or part number in search feature.

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze
