Re: NOT ENOUGH WATER.
Check to see if the water line is kinked or if the valve is partly closed.next check to see if you have some blockage in the line. Shut the water off, remove the filter element,if you hace one and blow air in the water dispenser. If that doesn't do it, remove the line after the shut off, and blow air in before the filter. if all is good you may have to replace the water valve solenoid. Is your ice maker making ice ? if not it is not getting water either. let me know if this helps..

Oy, ice makers! This can happen if there is low water pressure, and that can happen if the water filter needs replacement. Another explanation is evaporation which can happen after even a few days. But if they come out of the ice maker small, it's probably the filter -- if it also has a water dispenser, you might notice that water comes out slowly. If the filter doesn't fix it, the actual water feed may not be providing enough water pressure for some reason ... maybe as simple as loosening the valve on the back ... but probably not likely.
the water valve located on the back of the refrigerator that the water line is connected to could be bad. if no water is coming to the ice maker then it shouldn't have any ice or water in the ice mold. if it is empty you can try pouring enough water in the mold to make ice cubes. wait an hour or so and see if the ice maker dumps the ice. if it does you probably have a bad water valve.
if your ice maker has ice in it but had been making small cubes you should check to make sure you don't have a jam. small cubes could be from low water pressure or a blockage. if your refrigerator has a water filter it may be time to replace it if the water dispenser water pressure is also low.
Most likely the ice maker itself needs to be replaced. Take of the cover of the ice maker and there are test points on it. L is line voltage and should have power. V is valve and should also have power. Unplug the ice maker and jumper the two middle wires togather fro a second. If water comes out then it is definately the ice maker. If not either the valve is shot not letting water in, or the filter is clogged not allowing enough water in. The ice maker does not have a level sensor to tell when it is full it just opens the valve for a give amount of time. Usually 5 seconds. Also check the where the water comes into the ice maker. Sometimes ice builds up there stopping water flow.
IF YOU HAVE THE SAME FREEZER AS MY MOM HAS THEN I MAY CAN HELP YOU OUT. FIRST OFF WHEN YOU OPEN THE FREEZER PORTION (SIDE BY SIDE STYLE) YOU WILL SEE THE ICE DISPENSER. TAKE THE PART OFF WHERE IS SHOWS YOU: TO MAKE ICE MAKE SURE ARM IS DOWN AND TO STOP MAKING ICE RAISE ARM. THAT IS A COVER THAT WILL COME OFF WITH NO TOOLS NEEDED. ONCE YOU OPEN THIS YOU WILL SEE A METAL FRAME WITH A WHEEL IN THE MIDDLE THAT SAYS DO NOT TURN BY HAND. LOOK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WHEEL AND SEE IF THE ROD IS BROKEN (FOR EXAMPLE MY MOMS HAD A CLIP ON THE ROD THAT WAS BROKE AND WOULD NOT ALLOW THE DIAL TO SPIN WHICH THEN MAKES THE ICE MACHINE SCOOP THE ICE OUT OF THE BOX) CHECK THIS WHEEL TO SEE IF IT IS STILL IN TACT. THIS COULD BE YOUR PROBLEM.
welcometo the world of FRIGIDAIRE!! only company i know using that DIODE within the harness, im unable to lok up the part number for the DIODE kit, there are 2 of them, i would call the manufacture and ask them to supply you with number... just seems a ltiile wierd that ice maker fill troughdoor andyour water fill the ice machine, i see that you tried switching wires and lines still thesame result, please excuse the silly question but did you try to just switch the wires to the dual valve??? not worrying abouth the lines. just askin.
Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.
