Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frigidaire side by side model:FRS26HF6BW2

Refrigerator has ice maker Kit#GSI-26
water is leaking around the bottom of the frame of dispenser, causing rust to start forming on the door of the refrig. We have calked it, kept the tray in the dispenser dry, and change the filter as instructed. Where is the water coming from? Can the dispenser frame be removed to check leakage? Would appreciate any advise!

    We have the same problem only now the paint is coming off and showing blackish rust. We tried caulking it and it didn't help. Every time I try to wipe it, it gets worse.

Check the trap door where the ice drops through, it might be stuck in the open position, solenoid that operates the door may be bad.

My Frigidaire ice maker dispenses water when I use the dispenser on the door. I have been told it may be a DIODE issue. Does the LPHS2687KF0 have a diode?


Good Morning Jim,

I understand the ice maker is dispensing water when you use the dispenser on the door of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# LPHS2687KF0. I also see that you have a Diode kit and are not sure if it would be this that is needed or a water valve that would be needed. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your refrigerator and determine what is causing the ice maker to dispense water. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My ice maker stopped making ice frigidaire model plhs269zdb1 ice maker model number is GSI-26


The simple and most expensive solution is to replace the ice maker assembly. They sell for between 50 bux on e-bay to 150 bucks at Sears. From what I have seen most ice makers fit the same category and they look like they are all designed and built by the same company!!

The main problem is the gear on the backside of the unit snaps off for various reasons like ice cubes getting stuck and causing the ejector rake to jam, thus overloading the flimsy gear and snapping it off. You can not purchase the gear however you can choose to buy a gear-head assembly for 80 or so bux.

shows a typical repair kit. Just enter your model number on their website to find the exact match for your ice maker.

I repaired the broken gear on mine using some structural epoxy. Here is a pic of the repair in progress, The green stuff in the center of the gear is the epoxy I used. Good Luck!!

Icemaker leaks after refilling causing ice cubes to weld into a mass of ice.


I believe your water control valve on the back of refrigerator is leaking slowly and causing this. They are called dual water control valves because the ice maker work on one side and the water dispenser works on the other side. Most ice makers open the water valve forthe ice maker for 7.5 seconds just long enough to fill. Do you have your Sears model numer for example 321.54689 somewhere on your refrigerator or around door frame. Sea Breeze

Ice maker dispenses cruched ice in cube ice mode


You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid.
With your model number I can find a diagram which may help.
