Ice Maker Keeps Freezing

JUMP TO SOLUTION

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
