Water runs, overflows tray and never stops till i cutoff valve. Is the board defective? What needs to be replaced?
Answer Hello Codeweb,
If the water continues to run when the unit is unplugged from the wall outlet, the water valve is the issue. If the water stops running when you unplug the unit, the icemaker assembly will require replacement.
My Samsung frig,since new, stopped releasing the cubes and eventually would get jammed and break the gear teeth. 3 icemakers, all with the same results. They generally last less than 3 months.Something is damaging the heating circuit in the ice unit. Samsung replaced 2 under warranty years ago. Got any advice.
In most cases when the icemaker heater gets damaged or is not coming on then the issue is not with the icemaker but with the main control board of the unit not sending the signal to the heater on the icemaker to turn on when the unit starts to cycle. This will cause the fingers to have to force the ice out of the icemaker and eventually will damage the icemaker.
