Question about U-Line Icemaker

Open Question

Frigidaire FRS23HF5A side-by-side gets water to door, but no ice.

My wife just ran two bags of ice on Saturday (large ziplock bags) for an open house on Sunday afternoon. She emptied the icemaker.

Now, we can't get any ice from the icemaker. The metal sensor rod is in the "on" position.

I've checked the water supply and the water works to the door. I've also pulled the filter catridge, and it is not clogged or damaged.

HELP??? This Frigidaire is located in a church parsonage and I'm trying to save the church from an expensive service call.

Thanks

if it is overfilling making ice cubes larger than normal, adjust the ice maker fill time if it is possible
icemaker fills and cuts off but water valve seeps water after the fill causing the water overfill

SOURCE: U-Line co29ff, brand new unit. Makes clear, hollow, watery ice.

2 things you need to check. If you remove the icebucket look for armaflex the goes on the sensor tube from the icemaker to the back wall. If missing call U-line to get the correct one. The second thing you can do is check the icemaker control. Remove the grill, on the base in the right corner you will see a control with a screw. Turn the screw all the way to the right then back it so it will be straight up and down.That will set it cooler

You can try to advance your icemaker by removing the white cover on your icemaker and turn the smaller gear counterclockwise to advance the icemaker. When the icemaker starts wait until the ejector blade gets to 10 oclock position this is where it calls for water. The test would be unplug the coil on the valve and put a meter lead on each one. If you see 120 volts then replace the valve. If you dont see it it could be the water switch inside the head of icemaker.

You can try to advance the icemaker and when the ejector blade gets to 10 oclock it should call for water. If the coil on the watervalve is working you should hear vibrating. If not then it could be the water switch in the head of the icemaker. Or you can ohm out the valve(coil) to see if its open.Try that first it could still be that the thermostat isnt being satisfied.

How to clean a scotsman icemaker


WHAT SHOULDN'T BE DONE.
Never keep anything in the ice storage bin that is not ice; objects like wine or beer bottles are not only unsanitary, but the labels may slip off and plug up the drain. Never allow the machine to operate without regular. The machine will last longer if it is kept clean. Regular cleaning should happen at least once per year,and preferable twice. Some water conditions will dictate even more frequent cleaning of the ice making section, and some carpets or pets will dictate more frequent cleaning or the condenser.

WHAT SHOULD BE KEPT CLEAN?
There are 5 things to keep clean:
1. The outside cabinet & door.
2. The ice storage bin.
3. The condenser.
4. The ice making system.
5. The ice scoop.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CABINET.
Wipe off any spills on the surface of the door and handle as they occur. If anything spilled on the door of gasket dries onto the surface, wash with soap and warm water to remove.

HOW TO CLEAN THE ICE STORAGE BIN.
The ice storage bin should be sanitized occasionally. It is usually convenient to sanitize the bin after the ice making system has been cleaned, and the storage bin empty. A sanitizing solution can be made of 1 ounce of household bleach and two gallons of hot (95 deg F.-115 deg F.)Water. Use a clean cloth and wipe down the interior of the ice storage bin with the sanitizing solution, pour some of the solution down the drain. Allow to dry.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CONDENSER.
The condenser is like a radiator on a car, it has fins and tubed that can become clogged. To clean:
1. Remove the kick plate.
2. Locate the condenser surface.
3. Vacuum the surface, remove all dust and lint.
4. Replace the kick plate.

CLEANING THE SYSTEM.

HOW TO CLEAN THE ICE MAKING SYSTEM.
1. Open the door and turn the ice machine control knob off.
2. Scoop out all of the ice, either discard it or save it in a ice chest or cooler.
3. Pour 4 ounces of Scotsman ice Machine Cleaner ( available from a local Scotsman Distributor or Dealer, ask for part number 19-0343-06- an 8 ounce bottle) into the ice machine reservoir.
4. Turn the ice machine control to ON.
5. Allow the machine to operate for about 2 hours.
6. Pour hot water into the bin to melt the ice that has formed. That ice will likely be white and frosty looking.
7. Clean the bin liner of mineral scale by mixing some ice machine cleaner and hot water, and using that solution to scrub the scale off of the liner.
8. Rinse the liner with hot water.
9. Sanitize the bin interior.
10. Replace the ice removed in step 2.
The ice scoop should be washed regularly, wash it just like any other food container.
WARNING; Scotsman ice machine cleaner contains acids. These compounds may cause burns. If swallowed,DO NOT induce vomiting. Give large amounts of water or milk. Call Physician immediately. In case of skin contact,flush with water. Keep out of the reach of children. Always follow manufactures directions.

Ice maker stopped working


run service test with volt meter hooked up to the two terminals on water valve if you get a 110 volts to water valve when it is called for and water valve dose not open then the valve is bad. make sure the water valve screen in the end of it is not stopped up.

Our automatic ice maker will not quit dripping in the freezer. It keeps clogging the ice maker with icicles and large blocks of ice. Essentially, it keeps "freezing over." We have defrosted it...


if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't overflow.you can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed

GE Monogram leaking water on right side bottom door


If this refrigerator has a Energy Saver mode, turn it on.

Then, check the door gasket for the refrigerator to make sure it's not leaking. Test by placing a crisp dollar bill on the door jamb with the door open, close the door, and you should feel resistance to pulling the dollar out. Check with particular emphasis on the place where you see water leaking or accumulating

Marine ice maker problem


Mine has been doing this for years. You can check if the door gasket is good and sealing well. If not you can oder one and easily replace it yourself. Also, if I did not run my generator when I took a short ride ice inside would start to melt while the unit is off, usually around the case perimeter which would drip down to the bottom under the bucket and then when it was put back on it would refreeze under the bucket like a block and make it impossible to remove. I would sometimes just turn it off, put the ice in a ziplock in my frezzer to save it, let it defrost to get the bucket out and dry up the standing water.

Water works fine - No Ice


Does it sound like everything is running, only the machine isnt makinf ice? If so, there is a small triangular housing with a hose connected to the small motor on the left under the front panel. shut off the machine and remove the 3 screws on the triangular housing. inside there is a spring and a round rubber disk. take these items out and clean them. its amazing a tiny amount of debris will cause this to not work. install the reverse as you removed thewm, turn the power on.
