Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a frigidaire model frs26r4ab7 and the icemaker handle does not go down all the way to reset and produce ice. I have to manually push it down maybe 1 inch and then it will cycle and push water into the tray. I have checked the temp in the freezer and it is ok. Water flow to the ice tray is fine when it decides to turn on. Any suggestios

    My ge icemaker arm will not go all the way down. It sticks out about 1/4-1/2 inch. When I push it down, the icemaker will work. Is there a fix for this or do I need to replace icemaker?

Power went out freezer won't make ice in ice maker


Hey friend, thanks for your inquiry!
Normally, if power is not being received by your Frigidaire refrigerator it will not produce ice within the icemaker. Now once power has been restored it could take up to 24 hours to maintain temperature and start producing ice. If the power went out it is possible that the icemaker could have shorted or the water valve could have went out. I hope this information has been insightful. -Matt

Icemaker is slow in producing ice


If your icemaker is producing ice, but it is slow, there are 2 likely explanations.
1. Temperature. Water freezes at 32 deg, but the icemaker won't eject the ice until it gets below 10 degrees. If you always had good ice output and all of a sudden it has slowed down, you're temperature is a little higher than ideal. Check for a door seal not making good contact or try dropping the temp in the FREEZER side a couple degrees
2. New model. Most new refrigerators make ice much slower than older models to meet energy efficiency guidelines. This is not a repairable issue.

Ice maker not producing any ice.


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . Squeeze the black fill tub which is above the icemaker cup . If ice apears to be in it , this indicates that the weter valve is not completely closing , letting a drip ocasionally go thru and freezing inside the tube , ( water valve bad ) . that will be a different solution . If the icemaker dumps the cubes after freezing . and black tube is not frozen , replace the water inlet valve . If the icemaker does not dump the ice after frozen , replace the icemaker ( only 1 screw holds the icemaker in , located on rear portion on right , faceing down . Also check the icemaker rake , which should be about the 2:30 position . To thaw out the black tube (which runs thru the top of the refrig ) a 1/4 push on connector will be needed . Remove the icemaker and use a hairdryer aimed up into the hole . Cut the tubing to the fill tub behind the fridge about 9 inches from where it enters the top of the fridge . This will let warm air inside the top fill line to help thaw . Ocassionally blow thru the 9 inch tube until you can blow thru it . May take a day or 2 , depending how frozen the line is . Once air will go thru , install the push on connector to couple the cut lines back togather .

The blinking red light on the right side , is the receiver for the electric eye for cutting off the icemaker when the door bin is full , This blinking is normal . 2 blinks ...pause...2 blinks..etc .

Do not replace the filter if water flow is good thru the dispensor .

Ice machine is not getting water. changed the filter. water works still no ice


Check your manual, there is a wire or device to shut off icemaker when the ice bin is full it is pushed up to stop the ice making process. Make sure it is not stuck in the up position (off) and is pushed down so it can freely move up and down. If that is not the problem it could be a bad micro switch for the shutoff device or a bad water valve.

No ice from icemaker


Read the manual and see if the icemaker has a thermostat that prevents the admission of water into the tray if the freezer temp is too high. Also..make sure the ice level bar is down.

Icemaker


Do you hear it trying to draw water into the ice tray? If so, there might be an internal problem you can't fix yourself. especially since the fridge is dispencing water. Is the arm inside the ice maker pushe down? This is what tells the ice maker to fill and make the ice.

Let me know if this helps.
