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.
The same thing keeps happening to my refrigerator..this is the second time it has been repaired...new ice maker kit was replaced. it is very annoying since the refrigerator is brand new.
Hey, you stole my pictures 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?
I have the exact same problem with my Samsung RF23M8070SR. The ice maker has started to jam up with ice and the refrigerator is only 2 years old! I have to get a hair dryer to defrost the ice maker (not safe!) and reset it, only to have it happen again a couple days later. I've been researching and it appears that this problem is rampant with this Samsung ice maker/refrigerator. It appears that there was a class action lawsuit and Sumsung put out a service bulletin to replace the ice maker. Samsung please help! The fridge has been great with the exception of the ice maker. I need it replaced!
Same exact situation. The techs on this page seem to be very vague about this issue. One customer said to lower the water pressure. "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result". Its starting to be a pain in the butt to keep clearing it out knowing its going to happen again. He said it worked for him. Im going to try it. Will try anything at this point.
