Pull the front cover off the ice maker and force a harvest to see if you now get water. Also if the freezer is not 10 degrees or less it will not cycle. Jump "T" to "H" with a pice of wire stripped back 1/4" on each end. You only need a very short piece of wire. Leave it in the two holes for 15 seconds to see if a harvest will happen and if it will again fill with water.

Ice maker not making ice , we have water in the dispencer but no ice


Is the icemaker turned on? Did someone bump the on/off lever/switch accidentally?

If not, if you put your fingers in the ice tray, is there water/ice cubes? Unit may be froze up or the waterline may have froze up. Pull your food out and turn off the fridge and let the icemaker and waterline thaw. Speed it up with a hair dryer (caution that you dont melt plastic or wires).

Have a new frigidaire how long does it take for ice bin to fill after waterline install


Ice maker will call for water 12-14 hours after plug in. If the ref was running and then Waterline was connected it should call for water in 4 hours or less. Easy rule, after 24 hours, ice bin should be full.

The icemaker won't make ice , the fridge is about 19 years old.


Put some water in the ice maker. If it makes a batch replace the water valve. If ice is already in there then replace the ice maker. Service manual and more HERE

Is there a shut off valve on the ice maker?


There should be a shut off valve at the beginning of the water line that the installer tapped into when installing your icemaker. Mine runs down through my kitchen floor into my laundry room and is tapped into a copper cold waterline with a small handle attached to it.

To stop icemaker from making ice simply raise the lever to the up position that is attached and hangs next to your icemaker tray. This works on most models.

Even though I connected the waterline,there is no water in the ice maker. the icemaker keeps turning to dispose the ice it does not have. Thinking that the end of waterline was frozen, I unplugged the frig...


BACK OF THE FRIDGE IS THE WATER VALVE. UNPLUG THE OUTLET WATER OF THE VALVES, LEAVE THE INLET CONNECTED. APPLY 120 TO THE VALVE AND SEE IF WATER COMES OUT. MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE TWO VALVE, WATER AND ICE. IF THEY BOTH WORK, YOU HAVE A BAD MODULE IN THE ICEMAKER

Ice maker not hooked up (on purpose). The ice


Sounds like you are not going to use the automatic icemaker, so I would remove the whole icemaker unit which will include disconnecting the wire harness behind the icemaker which will shut off power to the icemaker and will also give you more storage room in your freezer compartment.This will not harm the refrigerator or the icemaker, you could also disconnect the waterline if you want.Please note that this solution applies to the top freezer,and bottom freezer style refrigerators only thatt DO NOT have dispensers through the door. Good luck !

Ice Maker Not Working


Hi: A lot of reverse osmosis systems don't supply enough water pressure to the ice maker to fill. Contact your manufactrue of your reverse osmosis system and see if it works with icemakers. I thind usually the require at least 20-30psi. Or hook your refrigerator to city pressure to see if it works. Also I don't know if you have just an ice maker or a water dispensing side by side, or your water quality. If you just have an icemaker, most chlorine will evaporate before the ice is frozen, any odors in the water will still be there. Good Luck, Jeff

I want to install my icemaker it is not working


Pour some water into the icemaker and wait for a sign of ice production. If it makes a batch then fails to produce anymore then check that water valve. If it does tose out any ice at all then check that ice makers connection or get another. Give that puppy 24 hours to start making ice. Read more
