Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.

remove the cover on the frount of the icemaker and on the right side of the module there is a little and i mean little white adjusting screw, turn it clockwise 1/2 half of a turn clockwise and this is what adjusts the fill time of the ice maker, you may need to adjest back and forth to get the desired size of cubes but do not go more that one complet turn of the screw to get the size
if you can not get it by doing this then the frount module will ned to be replaced

Top ice maker in Samsung RFG298AAPN does not make ice. No water cycles into icemaker. Icemaker has been reset, nothing after 2 days. Should I replace the icemaker or the water valve.


On these models I've noticed that the temperature in the ice maker area warms up due to a ball of ice forming inside the freezer compartment ice maker fan that has vent going to the ice maker. Until it is found whether or not that ball of ice is blocking the vent and fan you won't be able to go to the next step. The switch on the ice maker will test the ice maker by filling it with water and rotating the Forks that dump the ice into the ice bin Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

Amanda side by side wont dump ice. What can I do to fix. Have no money


Hello zinnas - If your refrigerator has completely stop making ice, try checking the following:

· It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.



· Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.




· When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!



· Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

If any of these suggestions prove to be infective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

My ice maker stopped working a couple days ago..it had been fine until then?


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it's frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don't refill with water.
ICE MAKER NOT GETTING WATER
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

It sounds like the water inlet for your ice maker is now frozen. Blast a hair dryer around the waterinlet to the ice maker for 5-10 minutes, reconnect the ice-maker and you should hear the sweet sound of flowing water

Stop making ice...and water does not come out of unit. Ice seems to be frozen in upper unit that dumps into storage container.


remove unit. wash it out, remove all ice. try coating the ice cube area with some PAM NON FLAVORED spray..LIGHTLY.. usually, the ice maker is attached by a couple of screws, then you can get to the power plug, to detach and remove it. Overtime, the ice cubes will stick to the surface sometimes the PAM spray will help the ice slip out, but if it continues, you may have to replace the tray ( especially if the tray is nylon and the surface is pitted from deposits from the water- replacing the filter at least annually if not every 6 months makes them last longer) if there is no filter to the water supply, get one.

My refrig stop making ice after I changed the water filter. I had the filter out for about 3 hrs, would this cause the problem?


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.
