FrigidAire Side By Side Slow IceMaker

The icemaker stopped making ice. I changed the 2 valuves out and now I am making ice again. Does anyone know how to speed the cycle time up. It makes ice about once every 2.5 hours. It only takes about 30 minues for the water to freeze. The slow cycle time has existed before I had the no ice problem.

    Thanks for the reply. I turned the temp down and I am producing a bunch of ice again. I should have tried that before posting, but I am just happy to have ice.

    Kriss I am having the same problem, did you say you just replaced the water valve?, did you test the valve to know that was the problem?

    Thanks

Ice cube tray won't stop making ice.


This is due to the arm that controls the switch on the icemaker itself either being shorted or froozen in the toggled position. Usually the arm would lift as your ice container becomes full and shut the icemaker off until it reached a level where the switch would then toggle to the make ice position and then start makeing ice again. There are three 1/4" screws that hold the icemaker in place remove these screws unplug the icemaker and then use hot water to dethaw your ice maker for about 2-4 minutes after wards dry the icemaker then try reinstalling the icemaker if the problem persists replace the icemaker itself. If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply.
Thank you

Replaced water filter on my Frigedaire refrigerator and it is leaking where the filter is it is making ice when the bar is raised for no more ice it does not lead but when the bar is down to make ice is...


Hello,

The problem there is going to be one of 2 related causes.

The tube in the back of the icemaker where the water enters it is partially frozen and when the water comes into the icemaker some of it is spraying into the bin instead of filling into the icemaker.Remove the icemaker and check and thaw that tube.

That tube is out of place so once again instead of water filling into icemaker correctly some of it is running into ice bucket instead of icemaker.

The freezer side every 2 to 3 days the fan makes a noise and the ice begins to melt. It drips from the ice dispenser. The following day every thing is frozen again. The refrigerator stays cold.


This may sound a bit harsh but turn off the water to your icemaker for several days. What your describing sounds like the icemaker water valve is leaking water by the diaphram and is leaking into your freezer. This is a common symptom of failing ice maker water valves. I just went through this on my own personal refrigerator where ice was building up. After changing the icemaker water valve all the ice build up ceased.
So turn off the icemaker water supply for a few days.. break out the ice trays if need be and see if the ice build up stops. If it does then the ice maker water valve will need to be replaced. Fyi they run $38 to 55.00 on average and you can change it yourself. Should the need arise here is a link to a replacement water valve source: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=113933&diagram_id=337176#d337176

My ice maker has'nt made ice the whole day


The arm on the icemaker can NOT be blocked. If anything is in the way it will stop and time out the icemaker. The face of teh icemaker is a timer, that arm lets the timer know it is ok to cycle through. Remove obstacles and then lift arm up and down to reset it. It's a thin silver bar on side of the ice maker.

Icemaker continues to run water for several minutes


Change your icemaker module. It is getting stuck in the fill position. They are about 50 dollars or so and are held on with 3 screws normally.

Frigidaire ice maker not working


Hi,
The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com
