Hello Mark Smith - Usually this type of information is not release to someone who is not a technician (or to a consumer) and it is very rare to find enough information to do it yourself. In most cases this information can be found on the internet; however it is not provided directly from the manufacturer due to safety and liability reasons. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage. Consider contacting your manufacturer for more details on who in your area can properly repair/install this part. (part usually have a 30 day warranty with tech). I would suggest contacting your manufacturer to provide you a listing of authorized technicians in your area whom may guide you through this process.

That is simply your dual water control valve found on the back of most refrigerators. If I had your model number I would be able to point out the part number and location. Here is what happens. The water valve begins to slowly leak water that comes to the ice maker when not needed. It moves slow enough that it begins to freeze solid inside the fill tube to ice maker and when the ice maker calls for water there is a big chunk of ice in the way and the water goes everywhere but where it should. Here is a short clip with lots of info, Please Rate and Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Electrolux will not make ice. the water will dispense

Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

I would check the water valve. Many of these refrigerators use a dual cylinder water valve and sometimes one of hose cylinders goes bad. The filter is at the inlet so if its still making ice, that means that the valve is still getting water.

I have had the same probelm for over a year. It appears to be a problem in the touch pad w/ribbon connector which Electrolux refuse to accept responsibility for a faulty product. Model E230575DSS8

Hi!!
You did not specify the type and model of your unit. On most side by side fridges just grab the top part of the cover with your fingers and pull out using lite force. Here is an exploded view of the dispenser.

First photo shows paddle assembly that can be purchased you need to got to Sears web site to find part # other wise you will have to buy the whole circuit board assembly hundreds more than the paddle assembly. The circuit board and paddle assembly is removed buy removing screw on inside of door and pulling it out be careful it seems strange but it just pops out. The paddle assembly slides on to the circuit board assembly look close and take your time to slide it off I thought I was going to break mine but did not and save me big money.
Second photo shows tab for water dispensing still there.
Third photo show ice dispensing tab broken and missing.
If you leave the assembly plugged in press the micro switch for the ice dispenser and see if it works most likely the tab has broken and is what hits the switch telling the door to open and ice dispensing screw to push ice to the door. Hope this helps

Not sure about the frigidaire,but most front panels can be removed from front. If you look around outer edge of trim piece there might be little screwdriver slot.

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

If you look at the bottom of the facial plate, underneath. There are two slots to insert a flat screw driver. You should be able to access everything once you take that off. Good luck

Water Actuator is broken.


I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.

Before starting this job I would also like to warn all to please be save and UNPLUG the fridge. The whole job took me less then 30 minutes and I doubt anything will go bad in that amount of time.
