Hi,

\015\012It may be leaking but I think more likely is that you have a problem with the defrost system and it is not defrosting properly... that can give the same symptoms as a low charge or leak condition...

Subzero 642. Ice maker froze up (3 inches of ice surrounded it). Repairman steamed it loose. He could not run diagnostics because Subzero Tech Support was closed for Easter holiday. Yesterday evening the fan in the ice maker part of the freezer started making a loud noise. I called Subzero and was told to leave the door open and that the freezer would turn itself off. NOT! I left the freezer door open all night long. With the ice maker off, the ice maker is still frosty but, right now, is not ma

Mine is a complaint, without question. I have a Samsung RF26X refrigerator that stopped de spencing water and also had water under the vegetable drawers, turning to ice. I started calling customer service within 6 months of buying this appliance. Once, an evaporater was replaced w/o charge. Another tech worked for 2 hrs then told me the gasket needed cleaning, an $85 charge.That was too goofy for me. A 3rd tech told me I need to buy my ice if I want to use the water dispenser.

KitchenAid KSCS25INSS01 ice maker intermittent failure. It periodically stops making ice for days. I noticed it occurs when there is heavy use on the RO unit that supplies it. The drop in water pressure causes the ice maker to slow down and then the water in the line feeding it freezes. I had a tech come out once to defrost the supply line in the freezer above the ice maker. It seems however, if I could start a defrost cycle the line would free up. That must be the explanation for the observatio

Hi, I have a side by side S20D RBB32-A/G Fridge Freezer with ice and water dispenser. The frezeer and fridge stopped working. I called a local repairer who took away a part for repair. However, the fridge and freezer are now working but the ice and water dispensers are not.

My Profile Ice maker makes a very loud popping sound. Sometimes it makes ice and sometimes it will go days without making any. I hear it filling with water so I was curious where this water was going and I discovered a pool under the bottom drawer. On occasions when it starts popping I pull out the ice bucket and it will have several pieces of ice wedged between the wall of the dispenser that has gotten stuck and will not allow the ice to dump into the bucket. I don't know if this is all related
