Question about Jenn-Air refrigerator JS48SEDUDW User Manual

Open Question

Suddenly does not produce enough ice.

I changed the cylindrical water filter in December, it is due in May for replacement and since December the ice has been normal until now. I followed the owners manual and tried everything that's obvious in the book. Low water pressure is ruled out. The ice bin sensors working properly along with the switch that gets actuated upon closing the ice door. My food is still frozen properly. It is an extremely large and heavy unit therefore I'm assuming a high service bill is due for this beautiful stainless steel $8000 refrigerator. The cubes are sized normal but the ice bin is not fully filled with ice. I have 20 cubes after 2 days when it should be noticeably more by the 3rd day or sooner.

Couple things to check first is that your evaporator fan motor is running, located in the back of your freezer. open the door and listen for the fan some work on the door switch make sure you depress the switch to check it. If the fan is not running more than likely you need a new fan. The second thing is just look at the back of the freezer compartment and look for a layer of heavey frost if there is heavey frost then your defrost is not working, will need to manually defrost and probably replace the defrost terminator part of the heater assymbly

This is just anecdotal here, but one repair guy who came out and thawed a frozen line into the icemaker told us the fridge required near-full line pressure 90- or 70- or whatever that is, in order for the ice maker to work. This was a licensed repair guy. We were feeding it with an RO, which only pumped it in at 17 or 20 psi (or whatever the unit is) which he informed us was inadequate. However, after he thawed things out and we changed out the inline carbon filter in the fridge, everything was hunky dory for a couple of years. About a year back, the icemaking stopped, and changing out the carbon filters in the fridge AND in the RO system did the trick.

Now we have a different problem. Things aren't getting or staying cold, especially the fridge. I opened the housing in the back of the fridge, defrosted the extensive ice accumulated around the refridgerant coils, and everything ran great for a couple of days. Now we're back in the global warming pattern: steadily rising temperatures and thawing. I'm not feeling too happy about Jenn-Air these days.

most likely the little 1/4 inch line that feeds your fridge is either partially blocked with deposits or partially crimped. pull out the fridge and look for a sharp bend in the feed line. if you don't see that, then think about replacing the feed line with a new one.

I have a GSH25JSTE refrigerator. the water has suddenly stopped worki, but the ice maker works fine. will the water stop if the filter needs to be replaced?

Todd, Harrie, I have exactly the same problem. Water suddenly stopped. Dispenses ice ok. The blue water solenoid inside the bottom back of the fridge is working. I've read that the water line can freeze! I plan to replace the water filter asap, due to age. Will let you know if that resolves this...

Frigidaire French doors not making enough ice .

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not producing enough ice. I would advise to check and make sure that your water filter has a secure connection, if need be uninstall and reinstall the water filter to assure connection. Your filter should be changed every six months, if it is has not been changed recently I would recommend exchanging it.

If you continue to receive low ice production it could be an issue with your water line or water valve, I would seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnose and repair of your appliance. I hope this helps. -Matt

Automatic ice machine is producing brown ice

What is your water source and how does the water look from other areas, such as kitchen sink, toilet/shower? Did technician replace water line / tubing ? Lowe's and Home Depot carry tubing. Take off and replace. What has changed in your environment recently????

Cause and effect.

Check the water filter - may need to be replaced. Check your water connections for loose areas or water leaking. Might not be getting enough water. Check freezer temperature. If the temperature rises it will not produce ice at all.

Electrolux EW28BS71IS French Door Fridge no water and no ice

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.

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?

Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

Ice maker only makes cubes. It will not make crushed ice.


Kindly check it could be because of following reasons :

  • Freezer may not be cold enough.
    Temperature must be 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) or colder to work properly.
  • Normal ice making capacity.
    The ice maker will produce between 2.5 to 4.0 pounds of ice a day depending on your model. Side-by-side models come with a large ice bucket and it may take up to three days to fill this container.
  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.

    The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

    Hello jitkagardner,

    You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

    How old is the fridge?
    When have you last changed the water filter.
    Should be down below at the front grille!
    Try these tasks!

    If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
    Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
    shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
    supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
    • Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
    water flow. Straighten the water source line.
    • Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
    (depending on model) is in the ON position.
    • New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
    for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
    • Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
    compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
    close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
    • Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
    ice maker to produce more ice.
    • Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
    Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
    • Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
    operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
    be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
    • Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
    your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

    Let me know how it goes!
