Without the rest of the model number, I cannot check the schematic to see if this applies but
Check your door switch and make sure your freezer evap is running as well.

See, that's why corporations and their lackeys want to elminate the arts from education since they foster thinking out the box. All they want you to learn, is how to screw a nut on a bolt. This way you can help them. But people like you, who think out the box, are always finding ways to attack corporate profits ie their bottom line. Shame on you!

btw, you got any more tips? lol

I believe the unit works fine even with the icemaker turned "on."

lol.... keep thinking that. Time will change your mind. And when the control panel stops responding, or the fridge won't start back up, or your electric bill goes up due to an over-cooling freezer, visit this thread again.

Probably if your mainboard did not already blow, you'd also say.. "the wires are fine the way they are because my board is still okay."

ok cool... Apparently on some models With ice set to "off", the icemaker sensor is not checked as part of a self test routine. This is not true on all models, at least from what I can tell. This has been a question I've had for quite a while.

Recently I worked on a sxs Samsung where the wires were dangling and the icemaker removed. I was simply there to replace a condenser fan motor . Fridge worked, no problem... replaced motor, fridge would not come on. Thought it was something I did. Rechecked wires.. etc

Finally went to front of machine and saw a flashing door open indicator, which meant missing sensor. After months without an icemaker, the fridge finally shut down because of the missing icemaker. Why did it take so long? Because no one had removed power or self tested the machine until I did it. Freaked me out until I settled down went over samsung operations in my head.


I am using your thread in the hopes others, who may face this situation, know how to handle it.
