Having the same problem with Samsung ice maker  freezing up not making ice.  I have to use the blow dryer to thaw it out weekly. It's been replaced by company I purchased it from, but the new ice maker they installed does the same thing. It's a default in factory refrigerator. All of them should have been recalled by Samsung. Samsung is coming out tomorrow to fix it again. We should all demand a replacement refrig.

I have had numerous issues with the icemaker on my RF28HMEDBBC/AA with serial number <hidden>.  It started icing up immediately upon purchase.  Within a month, a service tech had to replace the icemaker because it froze and broke a piece that operates the auger.  He also used RTV to seal the icemaker box from the refrigerator.  Since then, I have had to defrost the unit about every two weeks because it would freeze up and stop making ice.  Now it no longer makes ice.  I have defrosted it use the forced defrost option and still no ice.  I change my water filter every six months and see no issues with water pressure.  This is an ongoing issue in many Samsung icemakers.  Is there a long-term fix for this?

I have Samsung refrigerator model RF28HDEDBSR, serial number 1C211312 and have been experiencing ice maker freeze up issues for several years.  Every 2-3 weeks I need to defrost the ice maker to resolve the problem.  Is there a permanent solution for this very frustrating issue?

 

Thank you

Hi all,

 

I've read most of the troubleshooting comments, and most don't include all the info I need. Many of the community comments also don't go quite far enough.

MODEL:  RF4287HARS 4 door frig.

 

My icemaker stopped working. I removed the container to make sure there was no freeze-up. There wasn't so I pressed and held the reset button. Even after 20 seconds, there was no "BEEP."

 

About 24 hours later, I tripped the breaker for 10 minutes. Turned it back on and reset. Still no BEEP.

There is sound coming faintly from the frig. It sounds like a pigeon "cooing" back there, but no ice.

 

It seems like I need to replace the icemaker itself, BUT, is there something I should check first?

 

Thank you all.

I've conceded to using a hair dryer with a dish towel laid in the bottom, its a known problem . I'm resolved to not purchase a Samsung Appliance in the future.

Our ice maker freezes up almost weekly and requires the ice to be melted and chiseled out before it begins working again.  I know this is out of warranty, but is there now a repair for this that lasts?  If so, how much is it?

 

Thanks

My ice maker keeps frosting up and it drips. I have defrosted it and reset the ice maker, but it continues to happen.

leaking freon try checking for leaks could be to low or not enough freon in your copper it happens when the company's workers forget to do the final check up.
