Ice maker wire signal arm will not lock in the ''up'' position

My refrigerator is an 8 yr. old. Frigidaire Gallery Professional Series Side By Side, model FRS26ZSHB3. My ice bin is overflowing. The arm will not lock in the up or OFF position. I took out the ice bin and no ice cubes seem to be blocking the movement of the arm. It seems to move freely, but just won't stay in the up position, like it's not catching. Any suggestions on how to fix?

SOURCE: ice maker

That means that the solenoid that controls the ice maker is defective and must be replaced with a new one.

That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

SOURCE: cubes won't dump into the storage bin

In photo below you can see the heating element that comes on moments before the ice maker drops the ice. If not working then the icemaker will struggle to unload. You need to unplug the refrigerator and then unpluge the ice maker and remove it to test these parts. Test with a multi meter or ohm meter. Test the 2 connections next to the number #26. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Ice maker arm does not move freely.

there is probably a piece of ice caught under one of the harvest fingers, at this stage of the harvest, the ice arm is engaged and will not move freely until the harvest cycle is complete.

How do I turn off ice maker


Good Afternoon Rsimmon5,

I see that you are trying to turn off the ice maker to your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS6R5EMB. You will be moving the signal arm to turn your refrigerator off.

To begin ice production, lower the wire signal arm to the DOWN or ON position. The ice maker turns off automatically when the ice container becomes full. To stop the ice maker, raise the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in the UP or OFF position.

If you have any trouble with your ice maker continuing to make ice after this, I recommend contacting either the manufacturer or an authorized technician in your area. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Ice maker quit working


Good Afternoon Kevin,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26R4A, is not making ice. There are a couple of things you can check. First, check the wire signal arm to make sure it is in the "down" or ON position. The ice maker turns off automatically when the ice container becomes full. To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal arm until it clicks, and locks in the "up" or OFF position. Second, check to see if the water dispenser is dispensing. You might need to change your water filter. It's recommended you change it every 6-8 months. The other thing if your appliance is not dispensing water is there might be a kink in the hose or maybe the water supply has been cut off. Hope this has been helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire refrigerator glhs38egsb0 ice maker freezing up


Hi - Is the wire signal arm in a stuck position or has any ice cubes stuck? If so, try turning it off and remove any ice cubes stuck to the wire signal arm or body of the ice maker and wait approximately 8 hrs. Should these suggestions prove to be ineffective and ice maker continues to freezer up, I recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Water is slow to dispense. Takes forever to get a glass of water? Ice maker seems to be keeping up? 5 yr old professional series in a 5 yr old house?


Try replacing your water filter. If that does not solve it you could possibly have a problem with your water valve or where the water line connects to your house water system.

Not making ice. Water dispenser works and water inlet connection is good. Signal arm is down.


There's nothing left that can be wrong aside from the ice maker. Is there ice in the ice maker now that won't come out? It could either be the motor out or there is a small chance that the ice is stuck and won't let the motor push it out. It would probably cost just as much to replace the ice maker as it would to have someone repair it.

The icemaker in my 10 year old side by side Galery series refirigerator doesn't work. How can I turn it off so that it doesn't use water every 15 minutes or so?


lifting the arm on the side of the ice maker will prevent the ice maker from cycling, assuming there is nothing wrong with the ice maker. However, simply turning off the ice maker may not prevent any problems you may be experiencing

Ice maker does not make ice


The first thing to check is that the wire bar attached to the ice maker is not locked in the up position.

Next, check that there is water pressure at the back of the refrigerator where the water supply pipe attaches.

If there is plenty of water pressure, the most common cause is a failed solenoid valve that is just past where the supply line connects.

Please report back with what you find, OK?
