Hello - If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, please check these, in this order:

It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.

Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. A clogged water filter or a blocked supply water valve may also lead to low ice production.

The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!

Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Should these suggestions prove to be ineffective, contact a professional to diagnose the unit.

Pull out the whole ice machine part. At the back of the fridge you will see a small rectangle hole with a white plastic part inside the whole. Loosen the pastic part by applying a little pressure with your fingers it should move, it's probably just sticking.

I would be happy to help. When you say it stop dispensing, do you mean it didn't drop the ice into the bucket or it didn't dispense thru the door? Also, make sure the arm on the icemaker is completely down. Fridgidaire has had some problem with the arm not coming down all the way and leaving it in the off position. Let me know so I can help.

Frigidaire JBND-28 ice maker has small lead with sensor hanging from the mechanism. Where is it to be located. Water now collects in ice bin

gee this may or may not be helpful, because I wasn't able to find that exact model in search engines, and my Frigidaire "Gallery" icemaker does not have a wire with a sensor like you're describing. But I have repaired a few icemakers, so maybe this will be helpful after all. First, you said water now collects in the ice bin. Well I can surmise that if this sensor had anything to do with cutting off the water, and it was out of place, the ice bin would have a lot more water than just "some" collecting. Rather, I'd expect to see it overflowing and making a huge problem. So I'm going to guess that this sensor is there to just sample the ambient air temp inside the freezer, to make sure its at least cold enough to operate. If its really sophisticated, it may even be able to speed up the ice making process depending on that temperature. But the water level is another story.

Like I said, unless the water is continuously running and won't stop, I'm going to suspect your problem is similar to one of the ones I've dealt with. In many of these ice makers, you might be surprised to learn that the water level is so stupidly simple, its a wonder your problem (and mine) doesn't happen more often. Truth is, most of these ice makers have a simple mechanical cam, that turns ever so slowly once a certain amount of time has passed, when the icemaker "believes" the ice is ready. Once the cycle starts, that cam controls many things. First it turns a heater briefly on then off, to free the ice from sticking to their small bins. Then, it turns another mechanism that pushes out the newly made ice, and finally refills the ice bins. So how does it know when to stop? Most of them really don't! It's just part of the mechanical timer mechanism, and it just "assumes" it will take "x" number of seconds to fill the bins. The only "smarts" here is that there is a mechanical adjustment available to allow you to alter this timing, to make the ice made into larger or smaller pieces.

The usual troubles with these mechanisms is two fold. The first happens when the mechanism is set to make the largest ice possible, and then something the water company changes causes your water pressure to increase slightly. The very unintelligent timer mechanism continues to do what always worked before, but now with more pressure, the bins are over-filled, and so the water drips down and collects. sadly, however, this is the least likely problem. In my experience these timers mechanisms only have to be adjusted once, for a happy medium ice size, and very seldom need further adjustment after initial setup. The more likely thing I have seen, and this happens with both the ice makers and the water dispensers, is that the electric "solenoid" water valve starts to malfunction, so that when the ice maker tells it to turn off, it either shuts off slower, or never completely seals!

So... for the first case, though less likely, you might want to try to find your manual and see if it helps you locate the ice cube size adjustment. Its just a tiny hole somewhere around one of the front sides (or could be the bottom), and is a simple screwdriver adjustment. I say "simple" but sometimes you have to be a near contortionist to adjust it, and getting it exactly right often takes some time. Before you do that though, remember I said there is a second and more likely case I'll explain in a second, and its best you try to determine which problem is happening before adjusting anything. To figure it out, you'll need to watch the ice maker when it goes through its cycle.

Now some of these ice makers are user friendly enough to provide you a button of some kind to force such a cycle start. I've personally had "universal replacement" ice makers where they did not provide this feature, and I had to add my own, but that's obviously an "advanced" topic. If you have such a button, use your finger to first make sure the ice has completely frozen. When it has, hold down the button until a cycle starts and then release. If you have no such button, you're just going to have to take notice when you hear the sound of new ice dumping, and quickly open to the door to watch.

What you want to do is wait for the currently made ice to be expelled, then watch the water inlet as you wait. Listen for the click of the water solenoid valve turning on and off. If the water stops within a second of when you hear it click off, but water has already begun spilling out, then you need to work with the ice-size adjustment I mentioned. If you hear the solenoid click off, and the water doesn't stop, again I'd say within a second tops, then you'll likely need to replace that solenoid. Ditto if the water "mostly" stops, but continues to drip. Sadly, some of the Frigidaire water solenoids can cost more than an replacement ice maker, so if that's the case, shop around! Finally, even if the water does shut immediately as it should, look carefully to see that all the water is going where it should during the fill process! It's possible a small mis-alignment in that filler tube could be sending water where it obviously should not go. That probably would be the easiest thing to correct. :-)

Good luck!

Not making ice

Hi: Change or just remove the water filter first. As your water dispensing slowed that is a clue. If the water filter is that clogged it will cause a problem with the ice maker. Plus the water you drink is not filtered anymore. City water is being run through 2 years of crud. If you don't replace it just remove it. I hope this helps, Jeff
