Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer


I bought a new water actuator, successfully removed the broken one and put in the new one, but now I can't get the water hose back in through the hole--just no room to get your hand in there to get hold of the hose to push it through. What's the trick?

There is a trick of sorts. If you go to the bottom hinge of the freezer door you will find the same tube. Pull carefully and give yourself as much excess tubing to pull up through the door. Do not pull too hard or too much. This will give you more slack on the top end to work with. Once you get it reinstalled in the hole in the bracket, you probably will need to pull "carefully" back down through hinge to reinstall the dispenser bracket assembly.
I hope this helped you.
Please don't for get to rate me if I have helped.

Leaking water periodically under the refrigiater

When a refrigerator leaks water like yours, it is common for the problem to be nothing more than a clogged defrost drain. When the unit defrosts itself, the frost melt water drips into a pan underneath the evaporator in the freezer, and goes through a tube from there to the bottom outside of the unit. Since the water cant go down this drain, it backs up on the freezer floor, then eventually the kitchen floor.

Water Actuator is broken.

I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.

Before starting this job I would also like to warn all to please be save and UNPLUG the fridge. The whole job took me less then 30 minutes and I doubt anything will go bad in that amount of time.
