Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator
Is the Ice Full metal bail (connected to switch) hanging down (Icemaker ON), straight out (off) or missing? If straight out, push down, if Missing, find and reattach or manually flip the switch that the bail connected to (near light), close door and see if it kicks on.
Another possibility is the entire feed, valve and fill piping froze and is packed with ice. Use caution here...
Fill a large bowl that will fit in the cubetray with boiling water and carefully insert it into its location, Flip the switch up (straight out) close the door, set kitchen timer for 30 min and check it then by removing bowl , flipping bail down and closing door. It will take 30 sec or so to start filling.
If all that gets you no joy, replace the fill valve solenoid

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Here is what the manual says:
3. Icer-ette freezes but water does not come into mold; no ice production.
3A. Nonfunctioning water valve assembly. 3A. Clean or replace solenoid valve assembly.
3B. Mold heater assembly. 3B. Contact Raritan Technical Support.
3C. Water supply turned off. 3C. Provide pressurized water.
3D. Icemaker module. 3D. Replace icemaker module.
3E. Cold control. 3E. Replace cold control.
3F. Bad wiring harness plug contacts. 3F. Contact Raritan Technical Support.*
Although this is for troubleshooting non optical sensor refrigerators:
The troubleshooting procedures for cycling the unit are exactly the same,
The ice maker module part number for the 120V unit is PN 628366 (do a net search for this part number and save yourslef a bumch of money if you fetermine your moduleis bad) You start the harvest cycle by removing the front cover and then jumpering test points T to H. The white dial will begin to move if there is power to the module. Remove the jumper when the sweep arm reaches 5" o'clock and let the ice maker automatically cycle. It should harvest, and fill in on complete turn of the white dial. If it does not fill you probably have a water supply or water valve problem. There is an inline input power fuse for the ice maker. Power should come in via the red wire.
Mind you the ice maker has an internal thermostat behind the module assy that has to reach 15 deg F to start the harvest cycle. When you jumper T to H you are bypassing the thermostat. If the thermostat fails or the unit does not reach 15 deg F then the harvest cycle will never begin.
