Thread: Samsung Icemaker failure after water stoppage

    Question Samsung Icemaker failure after water stoppage

    Model Number: RF4287HARS/XAA01
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    Our Samsung refrigerator ice maker stopped working after I shut off the house water supply to make a plumbing repair.

    I bled out the water from the water dispenser after the water was turned back on, and also tried resetting the ice maker, as well as power cycling the fridge.

    I watched and read about testing the continuity of the water inlet valve, and both valves seemed to have continuity (no range of acceptable ohm readings was mentioned).

    Our house water pressure is ok. Water is soft. Unit has had days to cool down, and freezer temp is set at -2 F.

    Not sure what to do next, love any suggestions on troubleshooting and a repair next steps. Thanks !!

    The most common problem with an ice maker is that it doesnít make ice. Other problems include an ice maker that wonít stop making ice or freezes up. Here we begin with the most common problemóthe ice maker stops making ice.

    If your ice maker isnít making ice:

    Make sure the bail wire above the ice tray is in the down position. When itís up, it shuts off the ice maker.
    Check the water supply line beneath or behind the refrigerator. Be sure it isnít kinked and is supplying water.
    Be sure the little fill tube that fills the ice tray isnít frozen. If it is, melt the icy tube with a hair dryer.
    Look for ice in the ice mold and make sure the motor that turns the ice ejection arm is working.
    Check the tap valve that connects the supply tube to the water pipe.
    Check the solenoid. For more detail about this and all of the above steps, see below.

    I think this could help you!!
