Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The ice cubes come with white powder

We just bought this fridge from The Brick. It is a floor model with minor surface scratches. That is ok for us.

But when getting ice cubes from the ice despneser, all ice cubes are coated with some type of white powder as we found in the cup. Not usre what it is, we may need to cleaning up before use for any new fridge (the user manual is missing for this floor model).

One more thing is the light bulb is missing in the water despenser, where we can buy one?

Thanks in advance.

Hey there....
The white powder in your ice cubes is the water line to the dispencer,The water in the pipe forms a white layer after some time,almost like the kettle around the aliment,you just have to clean the pipe out,i normaly use some hot water with a bit of vinigar,just make sure you flush the system after wards and there you go....

Hope you get it right...

    My Stainless Steel LG is BRAND NEW but has white powder falling out of the ice maker dispenser. It cant be a build up of anything because it's brand new! So what is the white powder that continues to fall out? Yes, I have a brand new filter on it as well. (And I stopped using the ice maker weeks ago because the ice had a funny taste).

    Wouter, are you saying that I will constantly have to clean this line? I have only had my new refrigerator for about 4 weeks! It is quite upsetting to think I must do this every month for the life of the refrigerator. Hoping I misunderstand, Lol. Thank you for your comment.

Freezers only buils up layers of ice after multiple opebing and closing of doors allows fresh air inside, the moisture then freezes out of the air and builds up in layers on the cold surfaces. Note that the more ice that builds up decreases the efectivness of the freezr and thus costs more to run. To test try making ice cubes in atray. The number 1 setting on the fridge will be the warmest setting. Hope this helps.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge. the fan in the freezer blows air through it. there is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control.

Ice maker stopped after electric shutoff

You may have a problem with the computer control board in the ice maker.  Try this.  Turn off the icemaker for about 2 minutes.  
Turn on the ice maker and press the clear button.  Press and hold this button for 12 seconds to get it to force extract.  This will confirm that the motors will work and push the ice cubes out.  Afterwards, let it run by itself.  If it still doesn't make ice, you will need to replace the icemaker.
