Question about Electrolux EI28BS56IS (278 cu ft) Bottom Freezer Commercial French Door Refrigerator
I've got an Electrolux EI28BS56IS1 bottom feeder fridge that has had all the problems with the ice maker. Finally got it working, except it won't dispense anything but cubed ice. Then, in the last couple of months, I've got water leaking from the ice maker. It appears that the ice towards the front of the ice hopper is melting when it is fuller. Took the dispenser mechanism apart and made sure the flapper was seating properly and was clean. Fridge temp is set to 1 degree. Anybody have an idea as to why the ice is melting in the front of the hopper? The ice seems to not melt if it is mainly in the back of the hopper and not full.
Check that the fan motor wiring has not been disturbed. If the freezer fan is not working, the fridge will generally start cooling but due to poor air circulation , it will stay colder at the back but will get warmer at the front hence causing the ice to melt. The usual temp for a food compartment is around 4 degrees. The freezer should be -18 degrees celcius.

Typically this occurs when the dispenser door does not close all the way.
The dispenser door is located in the freezer door in the chute that the ice dispenses down.
With the freezer door open shine a light up from the outside and look down into the door from the inside. If you see light around the door flapper, you will need to replace the dispenser door, if there is a large gap between the dispenser door and the chute you will need to replace the mechanism that controls the door.

That is simply your dual water control valve found on the back of most refrigerators. If I had your model number I would be able to point out the part number and location. Here is what happens. The water valve begins to slowly leak water that comes to the ice maker when not needed. It moves slow enough that it begins to freeze solid inside the fill tube to ice maker and when the ice maker calls for water there is a big chunk of ice in the way and the water goes everywhere but where it should. Here is a short clip with lots of info, Please Rate and Thanks, Sea Breeze

First check that you have good water pressure to the water valve. If you do, then the problem is in your refrigerator. And the most likely fault is the solenoid controled water valve which is a one in two out valve. Follow the water line from you house input and the first place it connects is that valve.

SOURCE: Ice maker not working
my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.
