Ice maker freezing up
I checked whirlpool because there isnt an option for samsung. But anyway my samsung french door fridge is 2 years old. The ice maker started freezing up and then when it gets so much ice back there on the walls, the ice maker quits working. I had it serviced and the repair people completely replaced the ice maker. It worked for about 2 months and now back to the same issue. Its now come down to there isnt any more that the repair man can do so he said. So my question is does anyone else out there have this issue and what is the answer to fixing this thing? Every month now i have to defrost behind the ice maker and then it works for another month or so. One thing to note also sometimes and not everytime when i first press the ice door to get ice on the door a trickle of water comes out before the ice. Any help would be appreciated.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
what is your model number?
They did check the psi the last time they were here. It was fine. It makes ice fine until it freezes up , then it needs defrosted like a 1960’s freezer and we start all over again. Is there a way to post a photo to this thread?
I have a Whirlpool double door with unit on front of freezer door.Its about 10 years old. Recently it started freezing up around bottom edges of ice bucket, forcing it up, resulting in it spilling a bucket of ice onto floor when door was opened.. The problem appears to be two fold. Using Crushed Ice allows very small pieces of ice to melt in a few seconds and get under bucket, building up quickly, pushing bucket up and out of its holder. The other culprit is the extreme relative humidity of the coastal south, which causes condensation almost immediately once door is open. It then trickles down and freezes under the bucket. The "Quick Fix" is to discontinue use of crushed ice feature and use only the cubed feature. My wife told me this. I was skeptical but tested her theory. After not using crushed ice, problem disappeared and no ice was spilled. I then used the crushed feature to have issue return in a matter of days. The permanent fix appears to be a new bucket and checking for blocked small drains.
