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...

Wouter.

My Kenwood frost free Fridge Freezer KFC60SS15 has got quite a bit of ice on the drawers


Look at the door on the ice cube chute. If there is a cube stuck in it holding it open, ice will form on interior surfaces of the freezer. The door flapper must close tightly.

Westinghouse ice maker quit working


Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

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.

Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp. try to chec in the user guide.

Hope helps.

My fridge did the same thing. I was told to:
Hold either one of the fridge doors open and press the fridge temp and ultra ice buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. The temps came on and the fridge started working.
