There are several possibilities. The dual water control valve is defective going to the ice maker, defective ice maker thermostat; frozen water fill tube leading to the ice maker is blocked with ice. You can see if ice maker is working by filling it with tap water and waiting to see if it dumps. If it does not empty the icemaker of the ice I would think ice maker thermostat. If it dumps ice and does not refill I would say you need a new dual water control valve. Sears has a complete model number system that is confusing I know. Sears made it that way. Not sure why but look around the cold food door while open and look near bottom on the frame just above the kick plate. The number looks like this, (model No. 253.64802400 for example) I will need that number to help you solve the sound alert coming from your refrigerator. Find that number and we can go from there, Thanks, Sea Breeze

here are some things to try first before calling repair person.
unplug the unit, if you can remove the unit , do it., IF NOT, JUST REMOVE THE ICE TRAY UNIT, leave unplugged for 30 minutes.

Fghb2844lf1 ice machine is not work


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FGHB2844LF1, is not producing ice. I suggest turning your ice maker off and taking out the ice tray and dumping any ice that is in the tray. Wait 3-4 hours. Dry the tray out and put it back into position. Turn the ice maker back on. It will take anywhere from 2-3 hours for ice to produce. If your refrigerator is still not producing ice, please feel free to reconnect. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Our Ice maker is not producing ice. I've tried using a hair dryer to melt possible frozen water. It worked once, but now that ice maker is back to not producing ice.


The heating element is not working to heat the base and free the ice from the tray. At this point it's probably better to just replace the ice maker. They are about 60-70$

My ice maker is making ice but very slowly. I have checked the water line to make sure water is flowing and that the line at the ice maker is not blocked in any way. Could it be a faulty selenoid switch?


for how long very slowly?in every 2 hour the water become ice but the ice produce in your ice maker is maximum of 15 pcs small cubes,its means depend on the tray if is big or small. if you use your ice in every 30minute or your family is using an ice by 1bottle its means the ice produce is not enougth for your family.and the tray becomes empty after you use at the same time. but if the unit is hard to make an ice or frozen your frezer side its the unit is have a problem but is not to easy to repair by if your self coz the part inside is hard to remove.

The Ice maker does not make cubes.


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Auto Ice maker in Whirlpool fridge, not producing ice. I suspect the water feed line might be frozen since it was working fine two days ago. I haven't heard the water fill and the tray is empty.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice maker not producing ice. Tried everything in the Troubleshooting section of Users Manual. Replaced water filter. The front water dispenser is working.


the most likely thing would be a bad water valve.try to reset the ice maker and watch to see if the tray fills up the fill tube could also be blocked with frozen water.the last thing is simply a bad ice maker.

Ice maker not producing any ice


BG...I'd buy into what the tech is saying. There are a number of ways water gets in but usually, it is a solenoid valve which lets water into the tray. The valve is controlled by a float switch. Usually, these items are replaced as a unit. When you touch them, everything cracks. If no power, then none of the functions will work...no water flow, no auger action.
