Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

It doesn't stop making ice. I've defrosted the freezer and made sure that the wire signal arm is fully raised, but it still makes ice until it overflows.

There is a problem with the wire signal arm switch.
Either the switch itself or the wires from it to the main control board are faulty.

Ice maker quit making ice how to find problem


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26R4A, stopped making ice. Here are a couple of suggestions you may try, to get your ice maker to produce ice.

    1)Make sure that the wire signal arm, inside the bucket area, is in the down or ON position.
    2)Make sure your household water line valve is open and on.
    3)Make sure your freezer is cold enough.
    4)Make sure the water dispenser is dispensing water. If not, the ice & water filter cartridge is clogged or restricted by foreign material, and must be replaced.
    I hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

How do I turn off ice maker


Good Afternoon Rsimmon5,

I see that you are trying to turn off the ice maker to your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS6R5EMB. You will be moving the signal arm to turn your refrigerator off.

To begin ice production, lower the wire signal arm to the DOWN or ON position. The ice maker turns off automatically when the ice container becomes full. To stop the ice maker, raise the wire signal arm until it clicks and locks in the UP or OFF position.

If you have any trouble with your ice maker continuing to make ice after this, I recommend contacting either the manufacturer or an authorized technician in your area. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire FRS6LR5E ice maker won't stop making ice


Ice maker wire signal arm is being held down by some item in the freezer. Move item and release wire signal arm. Any ice cubes that are frozen together over the wire signal arm. the ice rises in the ice bucket and pushes the wire signal arm up and this is what stops ice production as ice is used then arm comes down and starts ice production all over again. if there is nothing holding arm down then you will need to replace ice maker.

Kenmore refrigerator #59658642890, ice maker model #D7824705


The D number signifies this is an Amana frig. Clean the coils to make help the cold production. The ice maker thermostat does not activate the harvest until 28f. Raise up the front legs to force the doors to close tighter. Look for frost on the back wall of the freezer. If you see some you might have a defrost problem. This is not a fancy ice box. It is well worth the effort to clean it up and keep it. Make sure the motor down by the compressor is working at full speed it may not be.

Jenn-Air bottom freezer ice maker not working


I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!

1. How do I get repairs done under warranty?

* If your refrigerator is under warranty, you must use an Authorized Service Company.
An Authorized Service Company can be found by using our Service Locator. Enter your zip code on the Service Locator to get a listing of available service companies in your area.

Back
2. How do I order parts?

* Parts can be ordered through an Authorized Frigidaire Parts Distributor.
An Authorized Parts Distributor can be found by using our Parts Distributor Locator. Enter your zip code on the Parts Distributor Locator to get a listing of distributors in your area.
* You can call our toll-free number to order parts (credit card orders only.)
Please call 800-599-7569 M-F 9:30am - 5:30pm.

Back
3. Noises / Sounds.

* Dripping sound.
During the defrost, water draining from the freezer section will drip into the pan by your compressor in the back and bottom of your refrigerator.
* Air rushing or blowing.
There is a fan in the freezer section and in some models in the back and bottom of your refrigerator to circulate air. This is a normal sound.
* Louder when starting or coming on.
Compressor operates at a higher pressure when first starting and noise should disappear as refrigerator continues to run and balance pressures.
* Popping, crackling, or sizzling about once a day.
If your model is self-defrosting, the defrost system utilizes a heater to remove the ice and frost from the freezer coil. During this period you will hear some expansion noises as heat is applied to the coil and you may experience some sizzling sounds as the melting water drips on the heater.
* Running water.
If you have an ice maker equipped model, the ice maker will call for water as the old batch of cubes is ejected and the ice maker starts to make more cubes. This will last for about 10 seconds and is normal.
* Vibrating or rattling noises.
The following can be sources of these noises:
1. Dish vibrating on shelf - move dish slightly.
2. Floor is uneven or cannot adequately support refrigerator. Use shims or extra support.
3. Items on top of refrigerator are rocking. Place a pad under the item or remove.
4. Refrigerator is not level. Adjust leveling legs or rollers as needed. Add shims in the back if floor is not level from front to back.
5. Refrigerator is touching wall or cabinets. See your owner's manual for space requirements.
* Snapping or clicking sound.
If your refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker the water valve will snap on when the ice maker is calling for water. This is normal. In some cases you may not have the water connected to your ice maker and the sound will be greater. In these cases, pull the wire signal arm (bail arm) on the ice maker in the up position to turn your ice maker off until the water supply line is installed.

Back
4. Taste and odors.

* Ice or food has a bad taste or odor.
Ice and uncovered foods can pick up odors or taste from strong smelling foods in the refrigerator or freezer. Cover foods tightly and discard old ice.
* Ice tastes like plastic.
Plastic water lines will give off a taste when first used. It takes one or two containers of ice for plastic to stop leeching. Discard initial container of ice after installation.

Back
5. Ice maker - not making any ice.

* Freezer may not be cold enough.
Temperature must be 5 F. or colder to work properly.
* Water supply valve may be blocked or restricted.
Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
* Water supply valve may not be open.
Find and open the supply valve.
* Wire signal arm on ice maker is in the up position.
This position shuts off the ice maker. Pull wire arm (bail arm) down to start ice making.

Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice


hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

Ice maker won't stop making ice


OK, there's two possible issues but you have to figure out what is happening. Does the ice maker continue to make ice forever and would fill up the whole freezer section in time OR does the ice maker just "over make" ice that overfills the bin which then falls out? If the ice maker just keeps making ice you need the motor module replaced but if it can be turned off by moving the lever up then you need the "modified lever assy." that is on our service bulletins.
