How To Remove Samsung IMC701 DA97-05422A Ice Maker

Removing and installing a new Samsung DA97-05422A (IMC701) ice maker on a french door refrigerator is a pretty easy task.  This ice maker will often fail and make a clicking noise when it breaks.  First unplug the refrigerator.  Then remove the screw on the left, this will allow you to pull off the side panel and unplug the connector that goes to the ice maker.  Next pull the locking tab down on the ice maker while pulling the ice maker towards you.  This will release it.  Re-install the new ice maker in the reverse order.

*Note, this ice maker has the letters IMC701 written on the bottom.  Parts are not available for this ice maker separately, if something breaks, the whole ice maker must be replaced

      For warranty information on the replacement ice makers that we sell, please view our part warranty page. If you are looking for the warranty information on the refrigerator, you will need to look in the owners manual or contact the manufacturer.

    To take the side panel off, take a small flat head screwdriver along the crack of the panel and slowly wedge it out of its space. It will get caught half way back as there is a tiny tab that helps the panel stay in place once in position. a mall amount of pressure on that tab while wedge out the panel will do the trick…don’t force it.

    Also, the wrapped electrical line may be hard to see when your arm is in the way to remove the inner most portion of the line *the part tucked in a grove that is the deepest in the ice box is protected by a little tab, if you pull the line hard it will break. the tab is not 100% necessary to keep the line contained, so if it does break off — don’t worry.

    I dont have my model # in front of me but it is a french door samsung
    approximately 2 1/2 yrs old. Ice quit producing. I changed icemaker,
    filter and unhooked water line and made sure was clear and hooked
    back up. Still nothing and test button doesnt do anything either.It does
    not have water and ice on front, only icemaker in freezer below.

      First check to make sure that the water supply to the refrigerator is good. There are three components that can cause problems on most Samsung refrigerators, the icemaker, the main control board, and the water valve. Any one of these or a combination of more than one can cause problems with making ice.

        I believe I have a bad ice maker. The ice maker arm on the bottom of the unit is stuck up. Holding it down and pressing the test button does nothing. Water does work on the door dispenser. Is there a way to check the board or valve before buying a new dispenser? I have tried replacing the water filter.

        • Rick Posted on February 5, 2013

          All front panel controls work fine (I can hear the spinning arm engage etc.) so I assume the board is okay?

          • Ryan Posted on February 5, 2013

            There isn’t a way to test the control board. The water valve can be tested by using an ohm meter. The most common thing to fail is the ice maker.

    Replaced the ice maker on my Samsung RFG295AAWP with a new one from Parts Dr. The new ice maker works, but not very well. I get a few cubes in the bottom of the ice bucket, but the ice bucket never fills up. I have reset the ice maker many times, and it does not seem to help. Any ideas?

    • Ryan Posted on May 9, 2014

      First check the temperature in the ice maker compartment. The ice maker will only work properly if the temperature is 10F or lower. If that is good, then check to see if you have adequate water pressure and flow to the refrigerator.
