  1. KitchenAid WRF989SDAM00 has recurring problem with ice build-up on the evaporator coils, resulting in fan noise as the fan hits the ice. I want it to stop. I have melted the ice but it comes back...it used to take months between melting the ice and now it takes weeks. I want a permanent fix. As I understand it, there are 3-4 parts that could contribute to this, the defrost timer, defrost thermostat, defrost heater, or the control board. Sadly, several of these parts are out of stock at RC, so I may have trouble sourcing them. As with other older appliances (this one is only maybe 6 years old...), the parts get end-of-lifed and difficult to find. How do I test the parts to diagnose which to purchase? I can put my ohmmeter across the heater...but I need to locate the heater first. Is it clear where to connect the meter and can I do it in the freezer, or do I need to fully disassemble it? Is the thermostat the temp sensor (attached to 1"x 4" (appx) plastic with curved outside) that clips to outside the sheet metal separating the evaporator assembly from the freezer? Where is the timer located and how do I test the timer? And how do I verify it is not the control board...a very expensive part? thanks
  2. I researched this ice build up and most feel that it's a plugged defrost drain tube in the fridge section. I opened up that section and the drain tube is free of ice and water passes thru it with no problem, so I have eliminated that as the cause. I have a feeling that my problem may be with the water supply......but I have not idea as to a fix. Anybody having similar problems and what was your fix. THANKS
  3. I have ice building up in the bottom of the freezer compartment on my Samsung RF4287HARS French Door Refrigerator, below the pull out drawer. It will build up to about 3/4"-1" thick and then impedes the closing of the door. Every 4-6 weeks, I need to remove the freezer drawer, melt and chop the ice and put everything back in. I have been doing this for three years on a 5 year old fridge. Samsung Customer Service is ABSOLUTELY NO HELP. What causes this? And can I fix it myself?
  4. We bought a used Kenmore refrigerator/freezer (Model# 795.75084401). Occasionally we find a puddle on the floor and ice on the bottom of the freezer. Eventually the ice builds up enough that the freezer drawer won't close completely and then we start getting ice on the stuff in the freezer. We clear out the ice and things are fine for a few days and then the water starts showing up again. What is going on and what can I do about it? Thanks, --Mike
  5. Hello all, <I tried to search for my answer first before posting but I can't find the magic to make the search function work. Maybe it's a Chrome issue?> Anyway: the ice maker is leaking water into the catch bin while making ice so it's freezing some of the already-made cubes into big blocks. Is this a bad water inlet valve? We have very hard water where I live (Lincoln, NE) so that may be contributing to the problem. I *think* the fridge is level so I don't believe it's just overflow happening due to gravity. We haven't moved the fridge in 5 years and this problem just started a month ago or so. When the ice maker arm is "up" the leak stops if that helps isolate a troubleshooting best guess. I consider the automatic ice maker to be one of mankind's greatest accomplishments (after the wheel and red wine) so it's critical to get this fixed! Thank you in advance for reading / suggestions!
  6. Hi. First time I've been to this site in a few years and things have changed. I know I have asked this "hollow ice" question in the past, but I can't pull up my oldest posts. I would have posted in the Kitchen Appliance section, but that is now a technician only forum. Maybe my old posts are still buried in there? In any case... I have an Amana bottom freezer that has served us relatively well for about 20 years now. The ice maker has been replaced a few times. A fan a time or two, and some other things too. It has been producing hollow ice for a couple/few months now. A couple days ago I replaced the ice maker unit. When I was replacing it I noticed the fill tube had a partial plug of ice. It worked fine for the first few ice loads and I'm again back to hollow ice. Squeezing the fill tube indicates it once again has a partial ice plug. I think when this happened the last time I had to replace the part that controls the water flow into the ice maker. I'm here because I don't recall what part I replaced, and I'm also not 100% sure this is the problem. This site has been an amazing resource over the years. Cheers, Gary
  7. GE Monogram ZISS420nmcs, side by side cabinet depth unit. condenser is in the "ceiling" of the freezer compartment. Water is leaking, and freezing, from the ceiling of the freezer. Started making a terrible noise (fan was hitting the ice). I have removed all screws but cannot seem to remove the ceiling panel. There is a small opening, I can reach in and feel ice above the ceiling. I suppose I can fix the symptom by letting all of the ice melt and simply turning off the water to the ice maker. Any better suggestions? TIA !!
  8. Is the ice cube size adjustable on this model?
