I'm trying to get the ice maker on a Samsung fridge freezer

This answer was rated:

JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: I'm trying to get the ice maker on a Samsung fridge freezer working. It's an RSH7UNBP. It was showing an error 8 and an error 26. I fitted a new ice maker complete and when I turned it back on I had the error still.I reset this and left it over night. The error didn't come back up but the ice maker still doesn't work (Idid push the test button but nothing). I had the right PCB on my van so I fitted it and when turning back on I again got the error 8. I reset it and tried the ice maker test button but nothing. I've now run out of ideas.
JA: What device or product does this involve?

Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

Sounds to mean you have a faulty IC on the main PCB, if the test button isnt working since it suggests its not getting power if your confident the new ice machine has been fitted correctly.

I double checked the plug for the ice maker. I put a new pcb on and just got the same error. I checked the wiring as best i could put it disappears into the cabinet

SAMDA9200241B PCB SAMDA9711092A Ice maker

Was the PCB purchased pre-programmed?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
As far as I know. My supplier never mentioned anything and they normally do. The fridge and freezer still worked perfectly well.

If its not the PCB it has to be the wiring loom.

Ok Thanks. I was almost at the point of trying the display panel but was thinking wiring. Is it right that it can only be either PCB, Ice maker or wiring loom?

Yes if the test button isnt working as that just relies on a voltage being present.
