Start with replacing your water filter, Frigidaire water filters tend to reach their life's end much sooner than others, regardless if you have a filter reminder light, your filter can get dirtier faster depending on your water quality, the reminder light on the front dispenser is simply a timer and has no idea how dirty your water is. By pass plugs are also avail to take the place of water filters. In addition to the water filter, it is advised to check your water pressure at the back of the unit. turn the water at the shutoff, unscrew the connecting hose at the back of the fridge, place the hose in a wash pail, or medium sized trash can and turn the water back on, your water should rush out fairly strong causing some splashing in the pail.

Water diagnose light blinking 0n cm3 scotsman ice machine even after changing water level sensor


Is the sump tray full of water? or is it not filling up fast enough? Water level sensor lets control board it needs water or its full of water. If machine is not getting enough water or slow filling then check the water filter, if water is flowing good through filter good then pull water line off of the water inlet valve to make sure there is no trash blocking water at inlet. If not then make sure the water solenoid is getting power call from board to solenoid, if getting 115v to coil and slow to no water to sump then replace valve, if no power to valve then replace board.

Ice maker makes hollow cubes and water thru the door runs real slow


If your water line is the right size, then what has probably happened is that you have ice build up in the line. You need to take everything out of your freezer, and check for ice. Blow a hair dryer on the warm setting at the point the line comes into the freezer! I have to do this to mine every once in a while!

My ice maker doesn't make enough ice cubes


Is the ice maker itself filling normally, meaning where the cubes are made gets enough water to cover the complete area or just a few slots? If not then check the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker to make sure no ice has formed blocking the water from coming in.
Now if ice production in general has slowed, going from every 45 minutes or so to like every 6 hours, then your machine more than likely isn't getting cold enough. The ice maker requires the temperature be at least 10 degrees F or below for it to function properly.

Icemaker has always been slow. It produces ice, just a couple or 3 times a day. We have to keep our old fridge running just to get enough ice... Cubes are full size, freezer is 0 degrees, not much...


Hi,
The main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.

Ice maker running water into bin and ice is freezing over the top of the mold before dumping ... now it won't dump the ice


Most likely your water control valve for the ice maker side is not shutting completely. sometimes it's slow enough to freeze the fill tube shut and sometimes the valve is worn out and not seating. Let me see if I can find some parts I did not thaink Samsung Had a RB2 I was thinging. I'll check but you double check too. be back soon RS2155

Coffee maker is not pumping water fast enough. takes over a minute to brew a 8 oz. cup. pumps water real slow.


have you tried cleaning it? Minerals from the water build up inside the tubing and make it run slow. Take a pot full of white vinegar and run it through a brew cycle. follow this by a couple of pots of cold water and you should be good to go.

All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.

Ice maker works but not water dispenser


Here are the steps I took to fix thi:. First, if you tapped into a copper line near your sink, turn off the off the tap completely and turn it back on again. Why? Occasionally, calcium deposits will build there and cut down your water pressure. You may have enough pressure to run your ice maker, but not enough to push the ice out of the line (I'll talk about this later). Turning the tap on and off breaks up the calcium. This will also fix an ice maker that's slow to make ice or makes hollow cubes.

Next, I just kept running my water pump (about sixty seconds or more at a time) until the water finally started to come through. When it did, a few inch-long pieces of of ice came through -- telling me that the problem was a frozen water line. If running the water pump several times doesn't work (I think it took me six tries), consider turning off your fridge for a while (be sure to remove food and pack in dry ice).

My ice machine does not make enough ice


Check the water filters first. Then check the condenser coils for dust and dirt. Determine which way the air goes thru the condenser coils and check on the side the air goes into. There are coil cleaning sprays that work good. If it is still slow, it may need gas. That will require a service call from a technician.
