Samsung refrigerator freezers produce about 120 cubes per day, which is in
line with most manufacturer specifications.
Empty the ice tray and let the unit run for 24 hours. If fewer than 50 cubes
are produced during the 24-hour test, then your refrigerator requires service.
If your freezer is producing 50 to 90 cubes per day, try the following:
- Set the freezer temperature display to a lower setting. Freezer temperature
must be 5 degrees Fahrenheit or less for the ice maker to work properly.
- Make sure that the water valve on the refrigerator water supply line is
completely open. You can find the water valve where the refrigerator water
supply line taps into your house water line.
- If you have a water filter in your refrigerator, change the filter
cartridge. For instructions, see your Users Manual.

amount of time the freezer takes to produce a tray of ice, set the freezer
temperature display to a lower setting.
- If your refrigerator has a Power Freeze function, press the Power Freeze
button to speed up the ice making process. In the Power Freeze mode, both the
compressor and the freezer fan run for 10 hours continuously. The ice making
interval is reduced from 90 minutes to 55 minutes. If the ice bucket fills in
less than 10 hours, Power Freeze stops automatically.
NOTE: If you have just installed your refrigerator, it will take 6 to
12 hours for the refrigerator to produce ice.
You should throw away the first three batches of ice cubes that the ice maker
produces (approximately 30 cubes) to ensure the ice maker is making ice from
