I have a FrigidaireGallery Model FRS22XGCD. My freezer is NOT MAKING ICE. I do have and ice makers arm in the right position. Door water and ice does work. Do you have any ideas for me?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Ok, I am going to give you a series of things to check.

1.) Reach into the back of your ice maker. You have a fill cup and a full tube. Are they filled with ice? If so you have a frozen fill tube. You must remove the ice maker and with a hair dryer clear the tube.
To remove the ice maker:

25307572-yj1egbw3hyxzt0qos4ym0wwk-1-0.jpg


On the left hand side there are two screws on top - loosen them. On the bottom there is one screw - remove it. There is a conduit connector in the rear - squeeze the tabs to release. Now, lift the ice maker up and pull away from the wall. If the ice maker does not lift out, loosen the top screws a little more.

2.) reach into your ice maker mold (tray) are their any ice cubes jamming the unit? Clear and lift your lever arm up and then down.

3.) Were you getting small ice cubes? And then no ice cubes? This could be a ice maker solenoid valve problem.

This component cost $165.00. You can get It for about 40% less on the internet. Part number 215197400. Purchase locally, Cost $55.00.

4.) You will need a multi-meter to check the solenoid valve. Unplug the unit. remove the bottom cover. You have a duel solenoid valve assembly. On the right bottom is your solenoid assembly. The plastic tubing running up the wall is for your ice maker. With a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohms, disconnect the two contacts on the ice maker solenoid. On the solenoid, use your meter leads on each contact. You should get a reading of '0'. if it is good. Anything other than '0' is bad.

5.) Within your ice maker you may have a bad thermostat.
This

This component is $62.00.

If your ice maker solenoid valve is good, rather than try to repair your ice maker, you can purchase a ice maker locally for $110.00, or go on line and purchase one for $45.00.

Your ice maker part number is FRS22XGCD0

No ice


First check to see if the ice maker is operating. you can take the face plate off and observe if the gears are turning. The next thing to check is the water solenoid. This operates after the ice maker rotates to a certain degree, pushing on a micro switch that sends power to the solenoid (valve) that opens and allows water to flow into the ice maker basin If this solenoid is working you will hear a loud click. Next, check to see if the water in the inflow pipe is not frozen, by disconnecting the refrigerator AC power. Get a hair dryer and play the heat output onto a small plastic pipe that dumps into the back of the ice maker. This pipe sometimes becomes frozen with water ice and will not allow the water to flow into the ice maker. Mine has done this twice over the 12 tears I have had the refrigerator.

Water plug to the ice maker keeps popping out


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly This is usually caused by water leaking past the ice maker water valve. That water freezes up in the through the chassis water tube and then causes either the line to pop off or the tube to pop out. The remedy is to replace the ice maker water valve in the bottom rear of the unit. I just had to do the same thing for my own ice maker. The water line kept popping off and the ice maker had been making odd sized ice cubes. After replacing the water valve everything is normal.

If you need assistance locating a replacement water valve just respond with a make and model number of your unit and I will help you find a parts source.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Ice maker line poped out of back and water line going to ice maker frozen


Sometimes over the winter months the tube going to the ice maker can become blocked with ice and cause this tube to pop out.

1. With the water supply going to your refrigerator on take a look at the end that popped out and see if you can see it drip at all. If it does not drip just clear the ice out of the ice maker fill tube, then replace the line that popped out and you will be good to go.

2. If you do see a drip come out of the end that popped out you will need to trace that line back to the valve its connected to and replace that valve.

Thanks for asking.

No water to the ice maker


Check that the pipe that fills the ice maker is not iced up. Also check that the solenoid on the back (where the waterline hooks up) is making a humming noise when the ice maker calls for water.

Ice maker will not make ice. no ice is being made. no water appears to be in ice cube making area. can hear a ticking noise from icemaker area


Carefully pour water from small glass into ice maker, until the cavity is near filled. Wait a few hours. If it dumps ice, you can usually rule out the ice maker.
If ice maker dumps, then it will be either a bad water valve, Ice building up in fill pipe going into the icemaker, or blocked water line that runs from your water source to the machine.
Caution. If the fill tube going into the ice maker is filled with ice do NOT
use heat such as a hair dryer to melt it. It will melt things you do not want to melt. If it is this problem, you must also replace the water valve because it is leaking slowly causing your problem.
Lastly, in rare cases, the microswitch in the ice maker fails and does not allow water to enter the icemaker.

BCM-95 Icemaker Was working fine until we moved Water does not go in..we have changed the water value and it still does not work.


fi you are using a percing valve you need to change it to a regular 1/2 by 1/4 compression vlve,, go to a half inch cold water line cut a tee in the line install a 1/2 out let pipe fot the ice maker, then install your valve run a 1/4in line to the ice maker, you shoud have no rblems,, it has to have volume with water supply in order to work, a percing valve is just that, it has a needle on the end you clamp it to the pi[e scre in the "t" handle till it perces the pipe, then back it off to open the water suply alot of times this is not enough to supply the water for the ice maker,,
