Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. As far as the seal on the door from the sounds of it your door gasket has went bad and is going to need to be replaced. The ice maker what exactly is happening with it?

Hi Travis thanks for replying. Is the door gasket sometime I can replace? The ice maker makes ice cubes sporadically but usually the ice bin is empty.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
OK, the only other thing to add is that sometimes when I cut off the ice maker and then turn it on again, it produces a small amount of cubes. I never forget to turn it back on.

the door gasket is not hard to replace give me a moment to pull up the part.

which door seal is it that is not sealing the left or right?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Travis, I am sorry, the refrig is a LG not Samsung, my bad. It is a three door model with freezer at bottom and two french doors. Facing the refri it is the right door.

that is fine I used your model number is ***** still the correct one?

Thank you. Would the lack of a good seal on the door be effecting the ice maker?

it could but let me ask you this how is the water pressure for the fridge? Does the water come out good? Its a possibility that ice maker is freezing up.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Water dispenser works but not sure what the pressure should be like.

does the water come out in a steady stream when filling a glass or does it seem to slow down at certain points?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Seemingly it flows in a small steady stream but it rarely cool water--more like normal tap water temp.

it could be from the gasket keeping the water from getting to temp and also the ice maker itself. Let me see something real quick though.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

ok so the more then likely problem is the seal if the seal is not the issue that leaves one of two things. Either the water inlet valve which can be tested with a multimeter or the ice maker itself.
