I'm sorry to hear your icemaker isn't working consistently. There are a number of possible explanations, including the possibility that the filter needs to be changed despite the light being blue. Samsung filters are designed to last about 6 months based on average water consumption. However, if your household uses a lot of water, or the water has a high level of impurities, then it may need to be changed sooner.
Following are some of the other possible causes/solutions:
- Air pockets in the water lines can affect ice production. When the filter is initially installed or replaced, be sure to dispense up to 6 gallons of water to bleed air from the lines.
- The recommended temperatures for the refrigerator and freezer compartments are 38°F and -4°F, respectively. If the freezer temperature is set higher than this, it could slow ice production. If the refrigerator is too cold, the water lines could freeze.
- Is something pressing against the lever that detects when the ice bin is full? The icemaker will not produce ice if it detects a full bin.
- Have you tried pressing the Test button on the side of the icemaker to reset it?
- Is your home's water pressure sufficient? In order for the ice maker to operate properly, water pressure of 20~125 psi is required. Under normal conditions, a 6 oz glass can be filled in about 10 seconds. If the Refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 20psi), you may be able to install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
- The Power Freeze feature can help increase ice production by running the compressor for an extended period of time.
I hope these suggestions help to increase your ice production.
