SOURCE: Ice Maker
Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.
Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Pull out the ice drawer and close the door switch the crushed /cubed button put the ice drawer back in and switch the selector button again. You might have to repeat the process I had the problem this week and by jiggling everything around and running a good bit of ice thru it started working again. Good luck

First try removing all the ice, then try operating. You could have a block of ice that is so solid it is not alowing to turn.

We had this problem and have visited several friends houses in our neighborhood who all have
appliances of approximately the same age, 6 to 7 years old and found this to be quite common.
The solution to this specific problem was rather simple, and has proven effective on several different brands, to the relief of many befuddled husbands and frustrated wives and now happier children.
Though the mechanism is in a slightly different location on some models.
I removed the ice hopper and looked in the back of the freezer and found the steel drive prongs that power the feed screw inside the ice hopper.
An inch down and a few inches to the right of it I found the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute for cubes or keep it closed for crushed ice. (on the Frigidaire Gallery Series)
I held the interior light switch closed and had someone push the ice lever on the outside and observed the drive prongs turn, but the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute did not move.
Stuck my finger in there and pushed it upwards manually and after a brief moment of resistance it moved freely.
Re-tested the operation of the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute, and it now opened when the ice lever was depressed and set to cube, and stayed closed when it was set to crush.
With the money we saved on the service call, I took the family out for chinese food.

Good Afternoon friend, thanks for your inquiry!
I understand that your icemaker is not dispensing ice in your Frigidaire refrigerator. I would recommend checking the dispenser chute, if there is a blockage of ice within the chute it would not dispense. When you press on the dispenser do you hear a noise? If you do that could be the auger trying to push the ice out, if you do not hear a noise it sounds like it be a potential problem with the dispenser or control panel. I would seek assistance from a technician to come out and properly diagnose your refrigerator. I hope this helps. -Matt

Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.
