Question about Frigidaire FRS26KF5C Side by Side Refrigerator
After having the refridgerator unplugged for a couple hours, the ice maker is not dumping ice. There are ice cubes made, ready to dump. I tried raising and lowering the lever in the ice maker. I also checked the water supply...I am able to fill a glass of water from the water dispensor.
Make sure the freezer is at least 17 degrees or colder (colder is better). If you have a square cover on the end of the ice maker see if you can pull it off and press on the gear face (don't turn just press). That may clean the electrical contact springs and get it working again. Basically if ya got water, 17 degrees or colder you will get ice. Other than that the ice maker motor module is likely bad (broken gear, etc.). Pretty common.

Make sure there's no "alien" object that got clogged onto the ice dispenser itself.

Mine makes ice and does not dump it... unless the bin is out! I took out the bin to begin trouble shooting and had to stop to answer the phone. While on the phone, I heard the ice drop. Not sure how to fix it yet but it seems like the ice maker is lower than it should be.

Hello....remove the from cover on the ice maker, and adjust the water flow screw inside. Turn the screw in the direction of the (-) negative side by half a turn to start. Adjust as needed. I hope this helps. ;)

could be that the ice maker arm is getting stuck or may have some frost on it. can you supply the complete model # please?

the bottom of the tray has a rod attached to it that controls a flapper that opens up to allow the ice to pass thru without hitting the cutter or crush blades. this rod goes into a housing at the back of the freezer that has a solenoid switch that activates it to open it up. check to make sure all of these items are free of ice and in their proper position and or not broken. if this all looks good then you may have a bad solenoid switch.
