The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush
or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Have a Side by Side Frigidaire Ice MAKER and water is OK, Ice Dispenser thru the door just stopped working. I bench tested both the solenoid and the auger motor with 120Vac and both work fine.


Did you check to see if your ice maker is working at all? What are you taking voltage readings at augur motor if it is working? - does not make sense unless you have all sorts of time on your hands. Test water solenoid for ice maker?Need parts? Go to link Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts

But you still have not verified that the hose is not kinked from the internal T where the water splits between the front water and ice maker. When you said you removed the solenoid, the water should have been pouring out. Seems to me a blockage between the T and the solenoid.

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 water to ice tray


Check water supply and pressure is. o.k (behind the fridge). The ice maker water solenoid is located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.Disconnect the tubing that goes up to the ice maker, and wait for it to cycle.You may have to cycle it manually.
If the solenoid buzzes but no water comes out, the solenoid is bad. Replace thesolenoid.
(Solenoid will get energized only when previous ice made cubes are not disturbing the shut off arm. Hence make sure you have emptied the ice bucket)

Ice maker not working


Cause could be the solenoid valve which controls water flow into the ice maker.

Could be bad solenoid, bad relay for solenoid, clogged solenoid valve, corroded electrical connections, etc.

More info? Let me know...

Ice maker won't make ice


The water valve has 2 solenoids one for water and another for ice. The water solenoid is connected to a larger hose than the icemaker solenoid. The water solenoid is working but the Ice maker solenoid might be dead. BUT the ice maker might not be calling for water. It is the ice maker that powers up the solenoid to fill the ice mold. At the end of harvest a tiny copper plate mounted behind the main drive gear rubs across a copper contact. To tweek the amount of water a small screw is mount at the 3 oclock position of the ice maker head.HERE are some repair tips and photos

The ice maker and water dispenser does not work. There is no power to the exterior dispensing unit on the refrigerator.


I'm assuming you are saying there is no ice and water being dispensed, but that the ice maker is producing ice.

Actual ice maker operation is independent of the fountain which is for dispensing only.

The power is checked at the fountain board on wires Red/Black and White. The door must be closed when doing this check as power goes through the door switch. If no power is present, check the same wires at the connector under the upper door hinge cover.

The next check would be Red/Black to Blue while depressing the actuator pad button.

Outputs off the board are Pink to auger motor, Black to fountain water valve, other Black to fountain light, Violet to cube solenoid, the two brown wires go to the ice chute door solenoid.

The ice maker can be checked by removing the plastic cover up front. Check test points L to N for 120VAC. Short test points T and H to cycle the ice maker. Make sure it does not have ice or water in the mold already, or it will run over.

Of course last but not least, check water to the refrigerator. It is a dual valve and unlikely both solenoids could fail at the same time.

My ice maker has just about quit working for no reason that I can find


Check to see if water is in ice cube forming tray. If No then probably a bad water inlet solenoid. Water line to fridge goes to inlet solenoid.

Ice maker


if the filter is still ok then could be a solenoid problem.

you have two solenoids at the lower back of the fridge. one is for the water and one is for the ice maker.
test the water solenoid by pushing the water at the dispenser. if you have located which is the water solenoid, then the remaining one would be for the ice maker.

hot wire the solenoid and observe if there is water to the ice maker. if there is no water.then either the line is frozen or the supply could be low pressure.
