Having a reliable ice maker in your home can make life much easier, especially during the hot summer months. However, if you recently purchased a Samsung refrigerator with an ice maker, you may not know how to get it started. Fortunately, turning on the ice maker on a Samsung refrigerator is quite simple and only takes a few minutes.
So, how exactly to turn on the ice maker on a samsung?
The Samsung refrigerator has a built-in ice maker. To turn it on, locate the Ice Maker Power switch located at the top right corner inside the refrigerator. It is a red button with an icon of an ice cube and will be labeled “Ice Maker Power”. Press this button to turn on the ice maker. Once the power is turned on, you will hear a sound indicating that it is working.
Next, adjust the “Ice Type” setting by pressing the “Options/Select” button and then selecting either cubed or crushed ice. This setting can be changed depending on your preference of type of ice cubes you want in your dispenser.
If you select cubed, you may need to wait for up to 24 hours before getting any cubes in your bin; whereas with crushed it could take up to 12 hours before they start appearing in your bin. The last step is to set “Ice Plus” which increases ice production speed by 20%. Select this option if needed and press ‘OK’ when finished.
Now that all settings are completed, your Samsung refrigerator’s ice maker should be ready for use!
Troubleshooting Tips for a Non-Functioning Ice Maker
First, locate the power switch or button for the ice maker. There are usually two ways to do this: by pressing a button on the main control panel of your refrigerator, or by locating and pressing a small red reset button located near where your water line connects to the back of the unit.
After you have found and pressed either switch, check that the ice maker is properly connected to an electrical outlet and has power running to it. If no power is detected, then you may need to replace either the power cord or outlet connection.
If you have confirmed that there is electricity going to your ice maker, then check if any safety switches are preventing it from working properly.
Some Samsung models come with thermostat switches in place which can disable certain functions when they detect too low temperatures in particular areas within the refrigerator/freezer compartment. If this is the case, reset these switches by turning off all circuit breakers connected to your machine for at least 5 minutes before restoring them again.
Finally, if none of these steps work for fixing your non-functioning ice maker then consider calling a professional repair technician who will be able to diagnose and solve any deeper issues with greater accuracy than most DIY approaches can provide.
