Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
I had never change my filter until today and my ice-maker had quit making ice. I was still getting water. I just replaced it and I am wondering if this was really the problem and if so how long will it take to make ice
If it was the problem then it shouldnt take very long couple hours at the most. If it wasnt the problem then the hose that feeds the ice maker may be stoped up. If it dosent work put a little bleach in it and see if that helps

SOURCE: ice maker not working
In my freezer, there's an infrared beam positioned over the top of the ice bin. If the bin is full of ice, it blocks the beam and no ice can be made. In addition, when you open the freezer door, a small (2x3") door opens in the freezer to block the beam, again to prevent ice from being made while the door is open. Is anything blocking the path of this beam from one side of the freezer to the other?

SOURCE: Ice Maker not Getting Water
There are two solenoid-operated water valves - one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. They're located near the water connection at the back of the fridge. There is no pump; the water pressure sends water to the icemaker whenever this valve is opened by the icemaker controls. Your symptoms sound like the coil is burned out on the valve. You can check it by disconnecting the wires and checking for coil continuity with an ohmeter. If the coil is open, replace the valve. Both valves might be combined into one assembly, so be sure you test both coils. Of course it's also possible that the trouble is in the icemaker itself, but a failed intake valve is more likely.

According to the manufacture, you must wait 24hrs to reap the benefits of the automatic ice maker. I was helping a friend the other day install a water line to a side by side unit that had been running for well over a week and after turning the water on we got no ice. We contacted the manufacture and they said "there is a 24hr waiting period". This makes no sense. I wasn't trying to get a gun permit, just ice.

Two things come to mind.
First, the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator may have failed. You didn't mention if there is a water dispenser and whether or not this is still working. This valve pumps water to the icemaker and water dispenser when the control unit of the icemaker calls for water. Also, there could be a blockage in the line which brings the water to the icemaker.
The other possibility is that the part of the icemaker controls which calls for water from the valve has failed. If this has happened, it would likely be more cost effective to replace the icemaker unit.

Hello nott225 - The issue sounds like it might be related to the temperature in the freezer. What is it set to? Make sure that the temperature is approximately around 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. If it is properly set, then consult a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues like a faulty ice maker valve or even the ice maker itself.
