Your model has a triple water control valve. That is part number 241734301
That is the possible reason something has cause them to send water to both places. Does your model also have a water filter below or inside the refrigerator? I will need to find a set of better photos/wiring diagrams to understand why this is happening. I will try my best but I will need to go to Frigidaire to look over the refrigerator you have, I just am trying to picture the water lines and I admit this is one strange case.Let me know, Sea Breeze

    I am going to need to study yours more to be sure why this is happening. But with 3 way valve I think something is causing the water to crossover there, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a maytag side by side frig model # msd2578vemoo the ice machine works but the water dispenser does not work


You will need to replace the water inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator. One line is for the water dispenser and the other is for the ice maker. The side for the ice maker is not energizing the solenoid to let the water thru to the ice maker. Here is the part you need to order.

Ice make hose keeps poping off


The reason your fill tube to the ice maker is freezing up time and time again is simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and ice maker. It most likely always is the ice maker side because it is always harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric plugs that energize the solenoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down
to the closed position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a 1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the ice maker and a 3/8" for the water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like "Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same position.

Ice maker not working, and water at door not dispensing. Refrigerator was turned off for 1 day and clearned to determine if frozen. Water is coming into fridge,tested okay. Fridge is used in garage. ...


The water solenoid valve might have gone bad. Also bear in mind that the ice maker has a spdt switch that send power to its water valve for just enough time to fill the ice tray. If the switch fails, the ice maker will stop working. The water dispensing solenoid valve also is controlled by switch, and if that switch goes bad, water dispensing will not take place. If you could test and confirm that those switches are OK, that would be a clue to the solving the puzzle. However, the water solenoid valves are still questionable; check them first. The ice maker spdt switch can be tested, but you need to be an experienced troubleshooter. If you feel good at troubleshooting; go for it, but remember that replacing those questionable parts may be one of the options to repair the problem(s).

I have model #TFX25PRYAWW. Ice maker is not filling with water. Water still operates through door dispenser.


NUMBER 800 is your water valve. It has 2 solenoids. One for water and one for ice. I suspect your ice solenoid is on the blink. It could also be dripping slowly like a faucet and clogging like a stalagmite the ice maker fill nozzle. The only other thing in the ice box that controls that water valve is the ice maker itself. if the water valve is ok then the ice maker ain't getting the power to that water valve solenoid.

Ice maker won't send water to unit. Solenoid is good


Make sure the fill tube where the water goes into the ice mold is not full of ice. Your old valve may have been leaking and it will freeze in the fill tube. Other than than maybe start the ice maker working by filling it with water and see if it dumps and refills.
You can swap the wires on the inlet valves and try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker letting you know the valve works and the line is clear.

GE Profile Performance Refrigerator - Ice maker problems


About every two hours you should hear the ice maker cycle. The easiest way to check is to turn the ice maker off using the arm up in the off position. After a few hours open the door lower the arm and observe. The plastic fingers should advance ejecting the ice into the tub. A few swconds after the ejection you can hear the valve and should hear the water fill the tray. If no advance with the ice maker than ice maker,warm temperature, or wiring. If no solenoid sound (ice maker ejector rotates)than electrical or solenoid valve. Solenoid valve and no water - frozen fill hose, blocked hose or unlikely but possible faulty solenoid valve. If you can hear the valve it should pass water!!

If the ice maker doesent cycle CK the temp of the freezer! Must be cold enough for ice maker to work. zero or colder will work for sure and 0 or so is the right temp for freezer. Above 20 don't think it will cycle and would be an indication low freon or bad compressor in unit.

No water to ice maker


There is a electric valve to only let so much water at a time ,and each time it dumps the ice that valve opens and lets more water in. The water line from the valve to ice freezing tray could be frozen or pluged. There is a switch when the ice is dropped it turns on the water valve.

In door water and ice cube not working


Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

Water dispenser fine but ice maker not working


Hi. A good way to check the ice maker water solenoid valve is to swith the wire lead from the dispenser water solenoid valve to the ice maker water solenoid valve. Now push the water dispenser lever and water should come out your ice maker fill tube. If not, either the fill tube is frozen or the ice maker water solenoid valve is bad. Take the 1/4 inch tube that runs up the back of your freezer off at the ice maker water solenoid valve and blow thru it. If you can't, the tube is frozen. If you can, the valve is bad. Good luck, Mack
