Samsung Ice Maker

I have a Samsung RB215LABP Refrigerator and the ice maker seems to have a problem with the amount of water that comes into it. First of all the inlet tube was frozen and I took it out and defrosted it but when it tries to fill up with water it lets in about enough water to make four cubes. My question is: Is there a way to adjust the amount of water that is dumped into the tray?

There is no adjustment for the water level. 9 times out of 10 this problem is with the electric water valve itself. It is not opening all the way, and since the amount of water that is allowed into the ice maker is on a time control, the tray is not filling properly. A new water valve should fix the problem. Not very difficult to install. Shouldn't cost more than $25.00 from an appliance parts store. Good luck, dfink

My standalone ice maker is making very small amount of ice


First off, check that the water inlet line is clear.

Once on a refrigerator ice maker, the part of the water inlet hose inside the freezer ha a solid chunk of ice blocking the flow.

Samsung mod rfg297aawp. Just began leaking water from the Ice maker. I have a RO water system. Book said to check the inlet water pressure. I wouldnt think that would cause a continous drip from the maker....


Calcium buildup in your water can prevent the inlet valve from closing all the way. To test simply remove hose from inlet valve that goes to ice maker and see if it keeps leaking. The only time water should come out is when ice maker calls for water. Be sure to shut down the ice maker. Push arm upwards or flip the switch. If keeps dripping than replace inlet. If you have any more problems please feel free to contact me.

The ice is no longer coming out cubed - just a big clumped together mess on my Samsung Bottom Freezer's internal ice cube maker


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This symptom is caused by a water inlet valve that is bypassing water when it is supposed to be shut off. The inlet water valve is not repairable and must be replaced when this symptom occurs. There can be yet other problems with he ice-maker itself, but changing the water inlet valve will correct this about 95 % of the time. Changing the inlet water valve is the first step in troubleshooting. Should you call for in home service; the tech will change the inlet water valve before doing any other troubleshooting and will most likely have to return after 24 hours to continue ice-maker troubleshooting.

If you need help locating a replacement inlet water valve I will need your complete model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Icemaker won't fill tray,


Was the inlet tube frozen. If so your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking and when the water reaches the freezer it freezes, blocking the inlet tube. Replace the water inlet valve.
You can Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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.
