    Both freezer and refrigerator sides are not cool enough since few days ago.

    Do I need to defrost the system ? How do I do that ?

Defrost the system completely and restart. One of two things will happen.

1. Unit runs back to normal. Possible temporary fault or more likely problem with defrost cycle. Monitor closely for three weeks and if fault reoccurs contact engineer.

2. Unit fails to get to any temperature. Call an engineer as you have either fault with compressor, fan , control, refrigerant , anyway beyond your control.

Hope this helps, and would be interested to know what happens.

How do I get the ice maker to produce for the first time


Is the arm that gets pushed up by the ice cubes (in order to stop making ice when it is full) in the down position? it is able to be pushed up and locked so that the icemaker doesn't make at ice and may need to be pushed down.

I have a 9 yr old frig. the ice maker is suddenly not making enough ice. do i need a new ice unit?


not necicarily, you might first try turning the freezer temp lower. also, set the cube thickness lower (control knob on the side of the ice maker if so equipped) both of these will speed up the icemaker some.

Icemaker quit working after I cleaned the coils.


After checking the fill tube (line that fills the icemaker) to make sure it's not frozen , pour about 3/4 cup of water into the icemaker . If the icemaker dumps the water but doesn't refill , replace the water inlet valve . If the icemaker doesn't dump the ice , replace the icemaker . ALSO , make sure the fan which cools the compressor is working . Possible when cleaning the coils , a glob of lint or something , was sucked into the fan and blocked the blade from turning .

Not putting water into ice maker to make ice


Try pouring 1/2 cup of water into the icemaker and if it dumps ice , then the water valve or fill tube is the problem . If it does not dump , then the icemaker is the problem , or , freezer is not cold enough . Check your coils under the refrig to make sure they are clean and the fan that cools the compressor is working ( and the freezer fan also ) .

Frigidaire Gallery side by side not working properly for one week. Won't make ice and the freezer side feels like the refrigerator side. Refrigerator side is barely cool. I emptied the melting ice, cleaned...


You must reset the icemaker. There is an off / on button. You might have to remove the ice container. Mine is above the container at the back of an upper shelf. First, turn the switch OFF for about 30 seconds. Now, turn the switch ON, then push it tightly inward in the ON position for about 30 seconds. This will "jump start" your icemaker and you shouldn't have any more problems.

Ice machine not making ice


Hi, everak11,
Three possible solutions for you.
1: No water coming in from inlet valve. Check voltage on inlet if you have voltage and no water then replace valve.
2:Icemaker not cycleing. Lift the arm on the icemaker to shut it off and leave it for about an hour. Come back in and turn the icemake back on by lowering the arm. If the icemaker does not begin a new cycle and the arm start rising then the problem is most likely an icemaker. Replace Icemaker
3:Refrigerator not cold enough. If the freezer is not getting cold enough the icemaker will not cycle. Check the temperature in the freezer and make sure it is getting down to 0 degrees. If not then you may have another problem with your refrigerator. I hope this helps you, Let me know if you have any other questions or symptoms. Mike

Hot Point Side by Side. Freezer works, Fridge not cool enough


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer Freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.

Freezer not cool enough and the Icemaker not working


Defrost the fridge freezer for 24 hrs and before turning on check for any water leaks. Turn back on if the cabinet pulls down to temp in 12hrs you probably have a defrost heater problem if it doesnt pull down at all it could be the fan or sensor fault. Either way you would be best to contact a suitable refrig engineer. Hope this helps. fishersofcambridge
