    I'm not sure all I do know is the ice bin was empty and the lever was up. I pushed the lever down and has not made ice. We are get water from the water if that will help you. The model # is ED2CHOXKBO5

If you can tell me what is and what is not happening I may be able to help. Did it empty the last ice and not refill or is it stuck between cycles? There could be something simple like the water control valve on back is defective. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze Also the model number on the bottom of fridge behind the fresh food side door or behind kick plate

    Do you have someone there that can check a couple things on the refrigerator with a multimeter or OHM meter? I'm looking over your refrigerator. The water control valve is located on the back of your refrigerator and near floor. It has 2 sides, one for cols dispenser water and the other is for the ice maker. Your ice maker also has a thermostat inside itself and when the thermostat calls for water it cycles the ice maker until it ask water from the control valve to refill. Below is a link to look at the parts. click on link and enter your model in the model and parts search feature. Put this number in the search because there are about 20 similar models and 6 meet your type. ED2CHOXKBO5

    water control valve part number 2188542

    We need to try a few things and let me know how things are. I just want to make sure the ice maker is not the problem.

Figidaire getting water in dispensor in door but no water to ice maker


The first thing you want to do is take the ice maker out of the machine. From there you can see if there is any ice in the maker. This will tell you a couple of things. 1) If there is any ice in it, that tells you the water valve was working and the ice maker didn't cycle. If this is the case, you need to check the temperature in the freezer. If its below 10 degrees F then the ice maker is bad, (that's the temperature it has to be for the ice maker to work 10 or below. ) If its above, you've got another problem. If there is no ice in it, re-install the ice maker, plug it in, and reach in the ice maker where the teeth are at and pull them slowly clockwise. Make sure the cover is off so you can watch the wheel turn. move the teeth as far as you can, what your doing is basically kick starting the ice maker. If the teeth keep turning, that's a good sign. That more than likely means the water valve is bad. If the wheel just stops, the ice maker is bad.

Ice maker quit working


good sign its flashing , woth door open depress the left side flap oppiste the blinkin light. does the light then go solid red??? i fso its an indication that the electricl eye is operating ok .
theres a screw 1/4 in. along the right side underneath the icemaker itself, youll need to removeit and the cover its holding down. you can then slide the ice maker assy foward and out of machine,There will be another litle tab along loeft side uder ice maker youll need to depress to ppulll unit out. pry off the white cover from front of the ice maker assy itself and have a look at the main gear 2 in. round, is it broken off, or on its way top breaking( sometimes the tabs that hold it on to the ice maker module itself break preventing operation, if this is the case youll need to repalce the ice maker assy.

There are many parts in this component that may be the culprit .
One or more will need to be replaced.
This is not easy to diagnose. I've seen service order parts 2 or 3 times till they completed the ice maker repair on a side by side fridge!

Frigidaire, ice on floor of freexer


check to see if the defrost drain is not frozrn over or stopped up
this is the only way that water can get into the freezer
frost could and melt but dont think that i would check the drain at the bottom of the rear freezer panel if you see ice it is stopped up for sure
if all is clear there go to the ice maker, have had some that are overfilling and runnig over the ice maker into the bottom of the freezer
