Please give MUCH more information, model number, symptoms of problem, when did it start, and anything else you know about the problem. I assume (that's dangerous) it is not making ice. Look in the users manual for the troubleshooting guide. It will most probably give you the common causes of problems. Is there water getting to the icemaker? Is the motor activating to dump the ice? Is the ice level detector bar locked in the up position? There are many simple things you can check before you need to panic and call for help. I hope this steers you in the direction of solving your problem.

SOURCE: the Frigidaire Gallery freezer has ice build up restricting air flow

#1. DEFROST TIMER stuck or defective. Not allowing DEFROST CYCLE to occur. Most probable.
#2. THERMOSTAT (cold control) has gone bad.
#3. CIRCULATING FAN. It pulls air from the FREEZER side into the REFRIGERATED side.
#4. and lowest in probability. LOW (leaking) coolant charge.

SOURCE: ice maker dispenses cruched ice in cube ice mode

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid.
With your model number I can find a diagram which may help.

SOURCE: Ice maker only producing crushed ice, only I have

We had this problem and have visited several friends houses in our neighborhood who all have appliances of approximately the same age, 6 to 7 years old and found this to be quite common.

The solution to this specific problem was rather simple, and has proven effective on several different brands, to the relief of many befuddled husbands and frustrated wives and now happier children.

Though the mechanism is in a slightly different location on some models.

I removed the ice hopper and looked in the back of the freezer and found the steel drive prongs that power the feed screw inside the ice hopper.

An inch down and a few inches to the right of it I found the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute for cubes or keep it closed for crushed ice. (on the Frigidaire Gallery Series)

I held the interior light switch closed and had someone push the ice lever on the outside and observed the drive prongs turn, but the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute did not move.

Stuck my finger in there and pushed it upwards manually and after a brief moment of resistance it moved freely.

Re-tested the operation of the mechanism that actuated the arm to open the chute, and it now opened when the ice lever was depressed and set to cube, and stayed closed when it was set to crush.

With the money we saved on the service call, I took the family out for chinese food.

Thank you for your post, Genie Byrd!
From my understanding your Frigidaire refrigerator is not sealing properly which is causing an issue with your icemaker. You may need to replace the component for your seal. I would recommend having a professional technician out to your home to properly diagnosis and repair your refrigerator. Are you under warranty? Typically, if you are under warranty a repair should not come out of your pocket. I would consult with your manufacturer for warranty coverage. Hope this information helps. -OOS

Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser

Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

The ice is not dropping when the cycle has completed. The ice is there but it will not fall. Do you know what could cause this to happen?

Look underneath the ice maker, there should be a reset or test switch. it should do a complete cycle and then come back to rest. If after that it still does not respond, then suggest a new ice maker module. To repair can be time consuming and costly and very seldom does one come right.

Frigidaire side-by-side ice maker hose froze up

I've seen three solutions to this but havn't tried them yet. One was to gently turn the tube counter clock wise to separate it from the refrigerator and then clear the ice form the end of it another was to use a hair dryer to thaw it out and the third was to wrap warm washrags around it to thaw it out.
