Question about Refrigerators

Frigidaire professional refrigerator

My fridgidaire pro series side by side, model plhs269zdb4, simultaneoously dispenses water at the door when the water paddle is depressed AND into the ice maker from the water flow tube. Causes way too much water inthe maker. As long as the water paddle at the door is engaged, the water flows into the ice maker and at the door.

    I replaced the triple solenoid water valve... still malfunctions. It continues to dispense water into the maker and at the door whenever the water paddle is depressed. Continues to overflow the maker. Wiring and water hoses are correct.

    Did the triple solenoid come with a new harness? If it didn't. There is a small diode on the harness for the triple solenoid. The diode prevents the current from going to ice maker fill solenoid and the water dispensor solenoid at the same time. The main valve solenoid will activate regardless of which one is calling for water.

Sounds like you have a problem with water valve/triple solenoid assembly. It controls the flow of water to the door and ice maker. I believe it comes as a complete unit.

SOURCE: Ice Maker

Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

If you don't get water at the valve and it has power it is likely clogged. Take it apart and find most likely a part where the rubber has softened and clogged a hole that is supposed to open up when the valve is triggered. On mine it was at the bottom of a little metal pole that the rubber was bad. Clear the clogged hole and replace the bad seal and you should now have water.

I have a Fridgidaire Front load Gallery Series Washer, Even when the machine is off the water is still comming into the barrell and the cycles aren't working right. help????


Hi bingoqueen12 - Often when a unit continues to fill with water, it is because the water valve or sensor is faulty or the control board is experiencing a communication problem. The unit may possibly think that there is not enough water inside and/or the control board is not controlling the water valve correctly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

The model number listed in your problem is a refrigerator.  Go to:

and enter the model number of your range/oven unit to find the user manual.  
On my GE range I only have to press and hold the LOCK button for several seconds (until it beeps) to unlock it.
