Question about Frigidaire FRS26W2A Side by Side Refrigerator
The water is not entering inside the ice maker, so the ice machine could not make any ice.
Hi,If it was working and stopped,the solenoid on the back is not working or the ice maker is not calling for water.(check the solenoid first)
If it hasn't worked before,check to make sure the water line is attached to the rear of the fridge and make sure the water is turned on to it.
Please rate this solution.

Here is what I would do:I would put some water into the ice maker and wait. If it kicks a batch out, I would replace the watervalve. I would locate the water line going under the rear of the ice box and shut down the water. I would gently remove and replace the valve and snug up the connections, check for leaks and wait and see if the ice starts back in production. if no ice I would then replace the ice maker which is easier still than replacing the water valve but a bit more exspensive. Since you want to got the cheapest route the water valve would be the start.

Ice maker stopped making
ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water
filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the
water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the
water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not
getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem
is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the
water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the
other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from
which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked
then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using
hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in
the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill
tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other
possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is
for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for
7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then
water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next
water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are
two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main
valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back
of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the
ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice
maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is
water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But
now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's
still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is
controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker
but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem
is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice
or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve.
------------But if ice is getting made in the ice tray,but the ice is not ejecting out then there is blockage to the ice ejecting blade.May be some ice is got stuck below inside.Clear all ice frost collected under the ice chamber.And then see.---------------
