Ice Maker Freezing Up

file1-1[5688].jpegfile2[5689].jpegfile-6[5687].jpeg

Like so many people before me the ice maker constantly freezes up. When you remove the ice maker bin there is what appears to be ice cubes frozen between the top of the ice maker and the wall of the unit where the bin slides in. No matter how many times you clear them out, it happens again within a matter of a two weeks. Yes, the fridge is level and the temperatures are: freezer 0 fridge 35.

I do alot of those Samsung ice makers. They usuallare from 6months out to 6 years old. It will have to be done by a good qualified technician. The cost will range from 350 to 700 depending on model. It will need an icemaker, y clip asm, glue, and some models will also need a control board and augers motor assembly. I can do them without the control board and augers. The problem is that the ice room isn't sealed properly and the original icemaker is wrong. I've honestly done over 100 of them without having any call backs.

I paid extra to have the manufacturer's warranty extended for 5 years(BestBuy) so it sounds like my best bet is to call them and have the icemaker replaced as the fridge is only 3 years old.

Also under NO CIRCUMSTANCES. DO NOT USE A BLOW DRYER. Use a steamer to defrost it. If u melt or warp the plastic. You will ruin the refrigerator.

Re: Ice Maker Freezing Up

Hey, you stole my pictures Smiley Wink  At least saved me from taking the same ones.  I have the same exact problem with mine model RF22NPED8SR.  We usually go about 2-3 weeks before I need to open it up and remove all the chunks.  It's quite infuriating as we only notice when no more ice comes out.

 

Ours started right before our warranty ended and I thought it was from the ice tray not being all the way in.  After cleaning it and ensuring that it was all in place I was quite surprised to have it happen again but by then the warranty had passed.  It stinks having a full kitchen full of Samsung appliances that work great (stove, dishwasher, microwave and fridge) and having this type of problem.

Has anyone found a solution for it?
