    My samsung french door icemaker is also regularly fucked as well. Ice jams against the icemaker housing and quits working until a forced defrost. Im doing it on average every 3-4 weeks now. Fridge is 3 yrs old...
    Take the thing apart - at the back of the fridge there is a sensor where its supposed to detect if there is an ice jam however on the samsung the sensor never reaches far down enough and causes this problem.

    the part is called SAMSUNG Clip Drain Evaporator REFOEM Original Part: DA61-06796A on amazon

    We’ve got a whirlpool too. It acted weird one day so had a guy come check it out since it was under warranty... nothing wrong with it, but he said whirlpool are one of the better brands for plebs like us (I.e. not counting Miele, wolf, SZ).
    Whirlpool, kitchen aid, and a few others are all the same shit rebranded

    Jennaire is supposed to be the luxury part of the Whirlpool line. Thermador and Bosch are related. Miele and SubZero are not inbred.

    Miele = Lamborghini
    SZ = Ferrari
    Thermador = Porsche
    Gaggenau = Audi
    Bosch = VW
    JennAir = Cadillac
    KitchenAid = Jeep
    Whirlpool = GM

    Right. So I guess I was meaning to say whatever that company is, and the products under that umbrella, are better than the Samsung and LG stuff.

    I’ll stick in that aside from ranges Viking is Porsche,

    Their main cooktop products are awesome, but they also sell a bunch of rebranded VW’s

    Jennaire and Bosch have some kind of relationship. When I broke our previous Bosch, I went looking for the same model, which was "discontinued", but saw a Jennaire that was identical, except had a blue LED floor light instead of red. Oh, they also wanted almost twice what I had paid for the Bosch, at the exact same store.

    Viking and Brigade split up a while back like SFAM and Citizens of Humanity did. I think the old Viking became Brigade and then Sears/Electrolux became Viking. For Canada anyways.

    Jennairs never appealed to me for some reason. I prefer the Asian imports with their flashy features.

    The LAST thing you want in a home appliance is a Ferrari or a Lambo - those things are maintenance nightmares.

    You want a Camry, but with a V6 SE 6spd package (doubt such a thing exists), in car guy terms.

    Here's an update for anyone interested in this....

    1) Called LG - confirmed if it is compressor it is covered under the 10 year warranty.

    2) Submitted an in-warranty request - received call from local authorized repair person to schedule appointment.

    3) Repair person said if it's the compressor only the parts are covered. Labour is not. Asked how much labour alone cost and she said ~$600 (!!)

    4) Decided to wait and see if wife wants to just go buy a not-shitty fridge. Scrolling LG website while waiting for her to call me back and noticed under "out of warranty' there is a "One Price", flat-rate repair program that no one told me about.

    5) Called LG again, turns out I can just get the flat rate repair for $249, which cover all diagnosis, parts, labors, etc..

    6) Resubmitted my repair request as a non-warranty repair for $249.

    LOL - this sounds a lot like Samsung SSD warranty claims - 'we dont RMA SSD drives', or otherwise deny warranty. Digging through discussion groups, one needs to contact a SPECIFIC Samsung department directly.

    The main, 1800 number just runs you around in circles.

    What is up with LGs fridges lately, mine might be on its last leg too. It runs and fridge is cool, but bottom freezer isn't able to freeze new stuff even when left in overnight. Even though the freezer temperate is set to the lowest at -20C, air coming out is barely -4C.

    Did all the troubleshooting from the manual: Freeing up airflow inside the fridge, clearing ice buildups, vacuumed the coils in the back, nothing.
    This is my second run-in with LG service so knew about the flat rate thing, which I got to say is a pretty decent protection for shoddy products.

    Sent in a service order yesterday and they're supposed to have someone here within 48 hours through Southland. Hope they actually show up tomorrow, otherwise my it's bad news for my stash of hoarded meats.

    What’s up is the Linear compressors are a known wear item.

    If it was the compressor, then $250 in exchange for 5 more years isn't so bad.

    Had no say in brands as this one came with the house, I'll definitely help make America great again when it's time to replace.
