NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

How do I adjust freezer temperature on Electrolux refrigerator?


Hello friend, thanks for your inquiry!

I see that you would like to know how to adjust the temperature within your Electrolux refrigerator, EI23CS55GS1. To adjust the temperature you would use the control panel on the front of the freezer door. There should be a "-"or "+" near the freezer temperature control and that is how you would adjust the temperature within your refrigerator. Be sure to check and make sure that the control lock is not on or you will not be able to adjust the temperature. Any adjustments made within the refrigerator need at least 24 hours to stabilize. I hope this is has been helpful. -Matt

Electrolux will not stop making ice.


Sounds like the ice level switch is either jammed on or is faulty.
Look for a flap of some kind that rests on the ice when it's made. Should be located at the back of the hopper.

you could have a defective switch or a defective display. Check as best you can to see if the switch is being depressed by the door when its closed. Check to see if it works, hold the door open and depress the switch yourself and see if the light goes out. If the light stays on you need a new switch. if the switches seems to work ok you make need a new display board.

More than likely the microswitch for the water lever has failed or broken.
You'll need to access the dual water valve on the back of the unit to determine that when you press the lever - the solonoid on the valve is getting voltage.
If it is getting the turn on voltage - the solenoid is bad and needs replacing.
If it is not getting a signal voltage - the switch is bad.
CLICK HERE for all the diagrams to your unit.
Unfortunately - most parts on this unit are unavailable. I have checked 3-4 different vendors.
This unit also uses a electronic board controller instead of individual components that can be easily replaced.
The replacement module for this unit is $376 and can be seen HERE as part #38C.
The dispenser module (#8) is not available.

Contacting the Manufacturer may be your best bet in finding replacement parts or an authorized repair center that can access the parts.

Electrolux will not make ice. the water will dispense


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
