Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Ice maker is not working but water dispenser is.

I had a big party and the ice bucket was emptied the following day it was still empty. I checked to make sure everything was connected properly and from what I saw it was but still NO ICE. Please help if you can.. I have the same problem. Only 1-1/2 yrs old and stopped making ice. light was on that said needed a new filter. Replaced the filter, but only the water works and not the ice. I have the ED5LHAXMO10 which says you just unscrew the old filter and screw in the new one. The water is supposed to automatically shut off and come back on when you remove or reinstall the water filter.

How do I Prevent ice dispenser from freezing up? Ice is in the ice bucket but will not disperse.


The ice stays in the cubemaker tray for a set time and then empties into the bucket. If the freezer was too warm the ice wasn't frozen enough when the cube maker emptied it and it all stuck together. Now the fridge is cold again empty the bucket, make sure there is no ice stuck in the dispenser and try again. If it is a Samsung fridge do the above and turn it off for 30 seconds and back on again. Sometimes the controller and display freezes and reads the wrong temperature.

Will not dispense ice


commonly what you will find on that model is the main control board on the back of the unit is the source of your issue, it begins like a computer virus where the unit will render the water in the door feature useless, next goes the ice delivery sys, then the unit does not defrost properly causing cooling issues. But before running out and getting a new control board go by this check list first: 1) make sure your ice bucket is properly seeded, 2) make sure the ice in the bottom of the bucket is not melted together if so empty good ice in seperate container and put back in freezer quickly to avoid melting then run hot water in ice bucket to melt remaining bad ice afterwards completely dry ice bucket and put good ice back in and see if it works properly, 3) make sure the auger mtr is not seized due to door being left open and humidity freezing in mtr gear.

Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

Ice maker


Hi, it sounds like made the inlet tube to the icemaker is frozen up. First thing to check tho is that the water valve to the icemaker is ok. If you take the water line off of the icemaker valve, you should be able to blow through it. If you cannot blew through the inlet line that leads to the icemaker tube, it is plugged with ice. You cn thaw that tube out woth a hair dryer.
If I can help further, please let me know.
Thanks

Ice maker is not working but water dispenser is.


Try the following check:

First make sure that the temperature in the freezer is 5 degrees or below.


Self-Diagnostics

Unplug the fridge and then plug it back in.

If the compressor is running when you unplug it make sure that you wait 15 minutes before you plug it back in.

You will then have 60 second to open the freezer door and 2 second to view the LED output code.

Ice maker check 3 pulses pause 3 pulses

Optics receiver 4 pulses pause 4 pulses.

Optics emitter and receiver 2 pulses pause 2 pulses.

All good 5 seconds on
