Frigidaire refridgerator leaking in icemaker

Try buying a new ice maker kit and replace it by doing it yourself. This would help you in saving money.

I recently bought a ice maker kit at lower price from they delivered it faster compare to others available in market and that too at low cost. Isn't that Good?
Try searching with compatible model no on Partsimple website.

Icemaker is slow in producing ice

If your icemaker is producing ice, but it is slow, there are 2 likely explanations.
1. Temperature. Water freezes at 32 deg, but the icemaker won't eject the ice until it gets below 10 degrees. If you always had good ice output and all of a sudden it has slowed down, you're temperature is a little higher than ideal. Check for a door seal not making good contact or try dropping the temp in the FREEZER side a couple degrees
2. New model. Most new refrigerators make ice much slower than older models to meet energy efficiency guidelines. This is not a repairable issue.

No water to icemaker!

i see no make and model # for your unit for i would check the internet for service manual, if the unit works when you power the solenoid manually than there is a censor or driver output transistor to the solenoid is defective and you will require a manual to service this problem, this problem location is on the control board or censor input to the board

I have two door refrigerator no frost but the unit could not make ice it has lesser cold output may i know whats the problem on this?

There are only 3 things that will prevent an icemaker from not making ice.

1) Temperature in freezer. Most icemakers require that the temp in the freezer is at a minium of 6 degrees. If the thermostat in the icemaker is not reading this temp or below it will not let the icemaker call for water to make ice.

2) Icemaker. Is the arm on the icemaker in the correct position. Most models the arm should be down to operate and up to be off. Faulty icemaker. The internal components of the icemaker may have went out.

3) Water inlet valve. If the silinoid for the icemaker on the inlet valve is stuck it will not allow water to the icemaker. Over time inlet valves wear out.

Troubleshooting- Check the temp in freezer. If not 6 degrees or below you have another problem with your freezer. If at 6 degrees or below and you have ice and water through door unplug fridge, switch the two hoses from the inlet valve (NOT Possible on all inlets so check to make sure you can remove the hoses by pushing in on the cylinder that hose feeds into and pulling hose out) Switch the hoses than press the water through door feature. If you get water inlet valve is good. If you dont have ice and water though door than have your inlet valve tested. If inlet is good and temp is good replace icemaker. If you have any questions or need further assistance please respond. Thank you

Small drip out of ice maker. Ice cubes dump out of ice maker are sort of siamese. I.E., they are chained together by a tiny amount of ice.

You are getting too much water to your icemaker, either faulty water valve or extremely high pressure or extremely low pressure either way will cause too much water in your icemaker, extreme low causes water valve not to shut off, high pressure lets too much water through when it opens. These pressures are not adjustable in the fridge. You can on certain models adjust the amount of time the valve is on, per the icemaker, it usually will have a screw on the side of it towards the front of the icemaker.

Amana side by side icemaker stopped working

The icemaker is not working because the water pressure is too low. An icemaker is controlled by a timer so it has no idea how much water is in it. The water valve gets energized for about 7 seconds letting water in the icemaker, but if there is no water pressure then the icemaker will not fill.

Used to make several batches of ice a day, now 1-2 a week.

If your refrig has the icebucket on the door and the icemaker on the roof of the fridge then you have two eyes on each side of the freezer....they are bad. If not then the icemaker module is bad. If you have a regular icemaker that hangs from the left side of the freezer then the module is bad. Also......Is your freezer still working good? Icemakers will not work if the temp is not low enough. Are you sure the icemaker is cycling but not making the full number of cubes? Low water pressure will force the icemaker to make only a few cubes at a time

Ice maker is working very slowly and does not produce complete cubes (thin). I have tried the Icemaker on both normal and max output settings with the same results. Others\wise the unit works great....

This is usually caused by low water pressure from the water supply or a clogged strainer in the water inlet valve where the water supply comes in. OR
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. + is more water.

Icemaker don't work

Most icemakers have their own brains so to speak all they need is power, low temp, and water to work.So check the water supply to the unit and use a test cord to check the water valve. It could be not cold enough in the freezer ,check temp and shrouds etc.
once you've ruled out outside influences you've got to dismantle the unit and check microswitches and stats all the while on the lookout for something thats broken lol
