Whats up with the Samsung ice banks leaking water? RF323TEDBSR/AA

09 July 2015 - 11:16 AM

I have come across 6 Samsung refrigerators Mode RF323TEDBSR/AA in the last 3 months.  All of them have the same problem, the ice in the fresh food ice maker bin melts and leaks water out the dispenser.   We have followed the instructions from the Samsung service bulletin  ASC20140818002, replaced the ice makers, replaced the fan case and they only work for a week then they start leaking again. 


Is there a repair that will fix this?  Is it a engineering issue?  Does anyone know?

I have ordered the main control board 2 times and both times the board was wrong. The part number I have ordered is DA92-00355B  the boards we received looked Identical the the original board except that they are missing the YELLOW CN78 jack. 
Am I ordering the correct board or is there something else I need to do to make this work?

Motor just hums 11029422801 CY4021872

Motor just hums 11029422801    CY4021872


Dumb question but I can't figure it out in my head.  My tech called me and said on the motor connector he has 120 from "R" to "GY" and 120 from "B" to "GY" but the motor just hums.  He tested the Cap and it was good, the pump and transmission turn freely by hand.   He replaced the motor and it does the soe thing it just hums.  Any suggestions?

This fridge had a bad main board, the part number is EBR73093611 however this board was discontinued.   The number I found as a replacement part was EBR73093617  I put this board in and everything work fine except for the ice auger motor.  It just hums when you close the switch.  I tested the power to the motor and there is 120v to it and it reverses when you select crushed or cubed.  This led me to believe the motor was bad.  I have tried 2 new motors and it still will not work.  Does anyone know what could cause this?


Kenmore 48" built in no cool in the Freezer, Mod# 40140483800

If you have a manual please send it to me.

The fresh food evap is cooling and the fresh food side is holding 38df

The freezer is at 40df , there is no frost on the coil


I understand the basics of this fridge but I am not clear on a few things.  So if anyone had some advice please let me know. My big question is does this fridge work like a normal Samsung or is there a switching valve between the evaporators?  I see a part called a step valve and I assume this switches the refrigerant flow between the 2 evaporators.  How do I test it?
