Samsung Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

We have the same issue with our Kenmore French door refrigerator. The Sears technician said it’s the filter head. Unfortunately Sears is so awful that after waiting 6 months for the part (and at 3 months in we received the wrong part) it arrived broken. So we’ll never know if that part would have fixed it. I can tell you for sure that it wasn’t the water inlet valve because my husband replaced it and we still have the problem. After that 6 month battle with Sears and dozens of miserable phone calls and 3 service visits we’re putting this 3-year-old fridge in the garage and buying a new one which we shouldn’t have to do. Don’t EVER buy from Sears.

That sounds like a power glitch. Try pressing and holding the power freeze and power cool buttons at the same time for about 8 to 13 seconds and see if it clears.

If that doesn't do it, let me know and I'll dig up the Fast Track on it.

If the code is 14 E then that means: IM sensor error.

Cause: the sensor is read as open or shorted, check the sensor connections and at the main PCB.

If you get the message OF on your Samsung refrigerator here is how to correct it. What OF means is your freezer and refrigerator has or is going to stop and warm up. How it gets activated I don't know. To correct it push the Light+Freezer buttons for 3 seconds. It will reset to the last temp settings and everything should go back to normal.

A power outage will make your Samsung fridge show the errors 1E and or SE. If this is the case, simply press the power save and lighting buttons for 10 seconds and the error will clear. OR... press the fridge and freezer buttons at the same time for 10 seconds to reset the control panel and clear the error code.Dec 10, 2016

When the water valve opens to fill up the ice maker, buzzing sounds may occur. ? When you open and close the refrigerator door, the air pressure equalizing may cause whooshing sounds. Most of the noises tend to be noticed at night when the home is at its quietest. This is normal as they are rarely very loud.Apr 9, 2020

Hi, the problem is that your refrigerators drain line is full, it causes the water to pack up under the pantry and then freeze due to it being so close to the freezer.

You will need to empty out your drain line and clean out the ice.

I hope this helps.

The rubbing noise comes from your build up of ice. If no auto-de-icer, then unplug your fridge or turn it off, allow it to thaw, remove all dripping water. restart or replug

I use a shop vac to remove water.

be sure NOT to break, or chip the ice, as you may break freezer components

Ice Maker Doesn't Turn Off

If your ice maker keeps making ice, even when it is full:
1Lift the bail wireto shut off the ice maker, and remove the ice bin. Then, using a screwdriver if necessary, remove the ice maker, clean it thoroughly, and then reinstall it.
2If the problem persists,consider removingand replace the entire ice maker and valve. With this type of problem, you can have it repaired, but it's often wiser and less expensive in the long run to replace the unit entirely.

Ice Maker Is Frozen Up

This ice maker repair is even easier. If your ice maker has frozen up, take the following steps to thaw it out:

1Unplug the refrigerator.Remove the ice bin from the refrigerator and remove any loose ice from the ice maker.

2Find the fill tube.This isawhiterubber-like hose that delivers water to the ice maker. Pull down the small metal clip off the housing that holds the fill tube (though not all ice makers have this clip).

3Warm the hoseand surrounding mechanism. To do this, you can train a hair dryer on the ice maker to melt any ice blocking the mechanism. But be very careful (sop up any dripping water with a rag) as electricity and water can present a serious risk of electrical shock. Also, be careful not to melt the plastic parts.

4If you don't want to use a hair dryer,you can soak the supply tubing with hot water, using a turkeybasterand catching the overflow in the empty ice maker bin. In some cases, it may be easier to remove the ice maker than to thaw out the fill tube.

On heat release ice makers You will want to check the heating element within the ice maker for continuity and a visual inspection of the board and conductors for burns and seizing,charedmarks.
How to Test the Ice Mold Heater
There are two types of ice makers, those in which all of the parts can be individually replaced and those in which some of the parts are clustered together into a control module. To determine which model you have remove the outer face plate. If there is knob, pull it off first, then pry off the face plate with a small screwdriver. Modular units have holes in the module's face plate for test probes. If you see several holes, each marked with a letter, it is a modular unit. It is easier to work on this type of unit by first removing the entireicemakerfrom the freezer compartment. The unit is usually mounted to the freezer case by two or more screws. Remove the bottom screws first. While supporting the ice maker, remove the remaining top screws. Unplug the ice maker from the freezer cabinet if you have not already done so.Along the edge nearest the shutoff arm, a pin protrudes through the mounting plate. The arm pin has a spring under the mounting plate. Reduce the tension on the spring by moving the shutoff arm into the "on" position, down, against the ice maker.
Test the heater for resistance using amultitester. Set themultitesterto the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each of the two terminals (or wires). The reading should be in the range of 60 to 90 ohms. If you get a significantly different reading, such as zero or infinity, then the mold heater is bad and needs to be replaced.Conduct this test with therefrigerator unplugged. Test the moldheaterfor resistance using amultitester. Set themultitesterto the ohms setting X1. Place one probe into the hole labeled "H" and the other probe into the hole labeled "L". Themultitestershould read in the range of 60 to 90 ohms.
Also be sure to check and test water valvewith a meter for continuity and voltage..( a full 120 and nothing less) And a visual inspection for any ice build up or blockage in tubing and flow line. Remember u may get a close circuit reading of continuity however it may still be bad in that it may remain constantly closed and water keeps flowing more than suppose to. Hence chunks of ice build up.
