We bought a house 3 years ago and it came with a Samsung Refrigerator. For some reason the previous owner bought a fridge with an ice maker and never hooked it up. Well you cannot disable this feature without causing an error that will not go away.
I've replaced the motor in the unit with a resistor but I just want to make a reality check as I am not an engineer.
The motor is a Mabuchi model RF-370CB-13490. I could not find the specs for this exact model but I found the series spec sheet here
So I went with the high side for both voltage (16V) and amps (0.011) with no load which would give me 0.176 watts. I measured the resistance through the motor at 20 ohms. So I installed a 56 ohm 1/2 watt resistor that I had laying around. Now obviously ohm's law says the resistance should be around 1455. Should I install a resistor with a value near 1455 or is the 56 ohm ok? I just don't want to cause a fire.
