Check the condenser coil it maybe plugged up use a hand brush to clean out coils and if you can use a air compressor to blow out coils this is the best way and this coil is used to remove heat from the system if it looks clean you can shine a flash light on the opposite side to see the light though the coils to check deep inside other then that the water vale may have a slight leak allowing warm water to seep though prolonging the freeze time or  you may have a compressor with weak valves or low ref. start with the maintenance thats the first thing people usually over look the dirty coil that you should clean once to twice a year that can over heat the compressor and cause it go out.

Why is icemaker not working


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the ice maker is not working in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FPHG2399PF. Please follow these steps to resolution:

    1)Make sure the ice maker power switch is on. This button is located on the ice maker itself.

    2)Make sure there is not a small cube caught in the ice maker itself. If there is, carefully remove it.

    3)Check your water filter. Water filters should be changed roughly every 6-8 months. Also make sure your water filter is seated correctly. Try taking out the filter and re-installing it. Listen for 2 clicks and make sure it is flush with the water filter housing.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

My ice maker does not work


Good day,
The freezer must be below 12 degrees before the ice maker will activate. If it's o.k. then follow the steps outlined below. It will solve your problem.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Just installed refrigerator. how long does it take to make ice the first time


The icemaker has a thermostat built-in that calls for water from the water valve at a certain temperature. Ideally, the freezer temperature should be around 0 to 10 degrees. Ice production, depending on temperature, should initiate around 6 to 8 hours later (assuming that the door remains closed most of the time).

Try a quick fix by useing a blow dryer to thaw around the water tube and ice maker. Also for good measure>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
