Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Hello, I have an Samsung rs2533sw. the ice maker stopped working. it is at 8 degree. at this juncture, the manual reset switch does not work. if I let it unthaw then it works. once it gets cold it doesn't work. It also looks as if the ice tray does not empty and the tray turns, the water poors out to fill the tray, but runs all over because the tray doesn't empty when it is turned. while it is warm, room temp, i depress the manual switch and it works as should???? help?


Answers :

Hey heads up! The ice-cube maker has two parts... In fancy terms the business motor end, and the back-stop. Your back-stop is all busted. Mostly because it's been used successfully as a backstop for a few thousand times. The piece costs about $20, and you can get it at any Samsung parts distributor. The best way to check this is that your ice-cube tray will look like it's coming un-hinged in the back when it attempts to empty the ice.

When it works properly the ice-cube tray is actually contorted about 45 degrees from the front end to the back. The same way an adult male would crush ice.
I am not sure, but I believe there is a heater in the icemaker assembly that heats the tray to help the ice cubes release. From your comment about the tray not emptying it sounds like this heater is not working.

\015\012A competent service person might be able to fix this component within the icemaker, but it might be more cost effective for you to replace the entire icemaker.

My LRSC26923TT side by side fridge/freezer has stopped making ice. It still dispenses water but it would not dump the last tray produced. I removed the cubes from the tray by hand, emptied the freezer, and shut down the fridge for an hour with the freezer door open to allow all parts to thaw and the electronics to reset. When I turned the fridge back on, it returned to normal operation, except the ice maker still will not work. The ice maker has an on/off switch. I've cycled that switch both on

Model #GD2SHA Whirlpool Fridge. Ice maker has worked fine for 8 years, but has stopped working suddenly. No cubes are jamming it. Water does not flow in to the cube tray. Water DOES flow from the water dispenser outside the door. We defrosted the freezer, thinking that maybe something was frozen up. Made no difference. Another question: The ice maker control inside the freezer has a red light flashing next to the on/off switch. What does the mean? Owner's manual says nothing about it.

Our fridgemaster mtrl170 fridge had a build up of ice in the top of the fridge. While I was away my partner took the fridge outside to defrost it and found the drip tray at the back was full of water and muck decided to tilt the fridge and drain the water and muck out. Took it back inside and switched it on. The light came on and it clicks at the back but it doesnt work. Switched it off for 24 hours to let the gas settle, but its still not working. Any idea???

I own a GE side by side refrigerator Model GSS22KGPD WW, Serial AG225890. This the third frig of the same model with the same identical problem. The ice cube dispenser on the door only gives crushed ice when it's working at all. On the inside water drips into the ice bin and causes the ice cubes to fuse together so the auger can't work. I have a solid block of ice on the bottom of the tray. At present I daily empty the cubes, wash the tray and dry well and start over. I have had at least e

GE TPX24PPBE icemaker auger doesn?t work: I have an 11-year old GE side-by-side refrigerator (TPX24PPBEWW). The icemaker auger won't spin to dispense ice.

The icemaker is Style 1 where you lower the wire shut-off arm to turn on the switch. When the icemaker dumps a tray of ice, it raises the wire arm as if the bin were full, but the bin is empty. Each time it dumps one tray full of ice, I have to lower the wire shut-off arm again to get another tray full of ice. How can I stop the icemaker from shutting itself off each time it dumps a tray of ice.

The ice maker was turned off for a few weeks and when I turned it back on, the water wouldn't feed the tray. So no ice. I put some water into it manually and it made the ice dropped it into the bucket but still no water flow. Unplugged fridge for a couple of seconds and checked, no water flow.
