Question about Frigidaire 5304458371 Icemaker Assembly

Open Question

How do I run a test cycle for #5304458371 ice maker

Ideally, I'd like a manual for this ice maker, but specifically, I'm trying to determine how to run the test cycle -- I assume I can boot strap two pins on it to by-pass the thermostat and get it to run though a complete cycle

Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.

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
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

Kenmore WR30X0318 Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice


The ice maker uses a internal thermostat that starts the cycle of dropping the ice and refilling with tap water. If your water control valve works filling the ice maker then the problem is the ice maker itself that will need replaced. Unfortuantly the ice maker you have has no rebuildable parts and will need to be replace with a=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

ICE MAKER


There will be several items to check that can get your ice maker back to operational. First you will need to see if the ice maker is refilling after each batch. Us a light or feel to see if ice maker is empty from the last cycle. If no water is in the ice slots use a cup and pour tap water into the empty ice slots to about the top of the ice maker. Allow water to freeze and if the cube's dump into ice bin. If then water does not refill the ice maker I believe the dual water control valve=> 67005154 Dual Water Control Valve is at fault.

Hello
Either the fill solinoid is bad or the inlet tube at the ice maker is frozen.
Try running a hair dryer to remove any ice that may be blocking the water from coming into the ice maker tray.

Kenmore elite refrigerator 10652202101 small light by ice maker on off is red flashing and water dispenser doesn't work


There is a diagnostic code you can check first of all. The blinking light will indicate the type of problem that is happening. I have included a diagnostic chart for you. To check out the ice maker there are some test points on the ice maker module that can be jumped with a well insulated wire. I have also included a picture of the test points. Before starting any of the testing first unplug the unit from the wall outlet. You will need to determine if there is 120 volts present at the ice maker module, this will require a meter. If you have access to a meter and feel comfortable doing this type of testing check between terminals L-N for 120 volts. If there is voltage there next unplug the unit again and with your jumper now jump from terminals T-H. Plug the unit back in and if the ice maker runs, after a few seconds remove the jumper and watch it go through a complete cycle. If it fills with water at the end of the cycle then the ice maker will need to be replaced. If there is no water fill unplug the refrigerator again and jump terminals L-V. Plug the unit back in and if you get water now the will need to be replaced. If there is no water fill you will need to verify if there is voltage at the water valve in back of the unit with your meter. If there is voltage there replace the valve, if no voltage that will indicate there is either a broken wire in the cabinet or a poor connection in the ice maker harness. richroth_135.jpg richroth_136.jpg

Not making ice


There are a few simple test you can do that will answer what the problem is. First look inside of your ice maker and see if there are cubes remaining and if yes just check the switch to be in the on position. Look and see that the ice bin full feeler arm works freely. If the ice make still has cubes the problem is most likely the ice maker. If the ice slots are empty the most likely reason is your triple water control valve=> 241734301-2 Triple Water Control Valve You can test that by filling the ice maker with tap water and if after the water freezes the ice maker drops the ice into ice bin and then does not refill with water replace the water valve. If have any question please feel free to ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

My ice maker in my freezer calls for water and water flows for about 20 seconds and overfills the tray and then water runs down in the ice bin and down inside the freezer. It is a Kenmore SXS from 2000....


There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1. Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
2. Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
4. Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

When the Ice Maker Leaks
1. Refer to your user manual to determine where your fill volume adjustment dial, is and turn it down. One-half to one full turn usually is approximately equal to 20 to 40 cc, and the correct fill is usually 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).
2. See if there are icicles hanging from the fill spout and/or on the ice maker's sides. If there are, this means your water inlet valve is leaking and will need replacing. Refer to your user manual for a part number, or call a technician.
3. Check to see if the ejector seal is cracked. If it is, replace it. Refer to your user manual for a part number, or call a technician.

Hope this would help you.

Ice maker won't make ice won't let water in


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
Ice makers not making ice are often a symptom of an automatic defrosting problem but first we will check out the ice maker itself.

Download this manual:
http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf

- Go to page 25 of the manual and determine which of the 2 "optics" designs you have. Then follow the troubleshooting steps. Note the charts on page 32 and 33 can be rotated by rt clicking and then choosing rotate clockwise. Bad thing about this is you have to click rotate 3 more times to to upright all the rest of the document when your done looking at the chart.
- If the Optics test is good proceed to the the ice maker functional test on page 29 and note the jumper wire required

As for the water valve see this link:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34
and this picture:
http://www.american-appliance.com/images/image_data/dual_valve_wp_small.jpg

You can make a simple test cord out of a CHEAP extension cord with some bayonet terminal ends and power the solenoids individually after removing the connector of the water valve solenoid. Apply power from an outlet to the solenoid and the powere solenoid should provide water to either water in door or the icemaker itself. 5 seconds is more than enough time to determine if the solenoids are functioning properly.

Between the 2 manuals you should be able to determine if you have an ice maker problem or...

Your symptoms are being caused by the freezer rising above 18 Deg F and the ice maker thermostat is just not cold enough to cause the ice maker to go into the harvest cycle. In this case... there are several other possibilites:
- Defrost control
- Defrost Element
- Bi-metal thermostat (60 Deg)
- Evaporator fan not running at full speed / at all. (A failed door switch can cause this but if the door switch is bad.. you will not have water in door functions also.)
- Dirty condensor coils
- condensor fan not running

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Whirlpool mod.ed25pqxfw1 will not despense ice. motor will not run. is there a test procedure?


I found a parts manual through Whirlpool and it says your ice maker is mechanical type. Fill with tap water and let freeze and if ice maker cycles and dumps the ice but does not refill the the water control valve part number 2182106 but that number has now changed to 2188542. Try this test first and I will send the parts manual and user manual. The test will point to what is happening like water control valve or the fill thermostat inside the ice maker, Thanks, Sea Breeze
