Water coming out door and into icemaker

I have the same problem with Frigidaire Refrigerator FRS26ZGGW4. Water comes out the in the door water dispenser when the icemaker cycles on, and if I attempt to fill a glass with water from the dispenser, water also comes out into the icemaker weather it is making ice or not. Runs into the ice cube storage bin and freezes solid so it makes it hard to get ice out the door. I replaced the icemaker - can't do that wrong, it only goes in one way and will only plug into the harness one way. I replaced both the single valve on the freezer side and the dual valve on the refrigerator side. TWICE. Can't do that wrong, either as they are color coded. Anyway, I have swapped the lines and wires and it didn't stop the problem. Now, some body said there is a "DIODE" on the wiring harness before it plugs into the dual valve on the refrigerator side. I looked, and there is some sort of a small copper or metal colored little thing in the wiring harness covered with a clear flexible rubber cover to protect it. WHAT IS THIS THING AND HOW DO I GET ONE AND REPLACE MINE? It seems to be made into the wires. Thank you all in advance.


This fridge is one year old. Ive replaced the water valves, water line, diodes and wiring harness. Now, when the ice maker calls for water, water shoots out the water dispenser on the front of the freezer door. The amount is about 4-6 ozs. Frigidaire has said its a bad water valve but we just replaced that a week ago. Any ideas?

Welcometo the world of FRIGIDAIRE!! only company i know using that DIODE within the harness, im unable to lok up the part number for the DIODE kit, there are 2 of them, i would call the manufacture and ask them to supply you with number... just seems a ltiile wierd that ice maker fill troughdoor andyour water fill the ice machine, i see that you tried switching wires and lines still thesame result, please excuse the silly question but did you try to just switch the wires to the dual valve??? not worrying abouth the lines. just askin.

Ice is wet when it come through.


Hey RO, I appreciate your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided the ice coming from your Frigidaire refrigerator is wet when it comes out. The wet ice could be due to a water leak within the icemaker or an air leak within the gasket. Is there any visible water leak from the icemaker?
I would also suggest checking the door gasket and you can use a dollar bill to test the door gasket. Place a dollar bill in between the door and the body of the freezer. If the dollar bill pulls out with no to little resistance, you may need to replace the door gasket. A faulty door gasket can allow warm air to enter the freezer. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

My side by side refrigerator is making a buzzing noise from the ice maker area every few minutes


Hello,
That sound you here is the icemaker calling for water to fill the icemaker but not water into refrig to fill icemaker. If you have no water connected to icemaker,lift up and lock arm into place to turn off icemaker,if you do have water line connected but no ice is being made need to see why water from house plumbing is not coming into the refrig.

The line to the icemaker won't have water coming out until the icemaker cycles and energizes the solenoid valve. check the inlet tube where it goes into the icemaker. sometimes this freezes shut. you can also check the continuity of the icemaker solenoid.

My refrigerator water dispenser is not working. I


In the back of the refrigerator there is a water inlet valve. It will have three hoses one coming in, two going out. A 1/4 line for the icemaker and a 5/16" for the water dispenser. If your icemaker is working and you dont have water at the door the valve to the water dispenser is faulty, you need to replace the water inlet valve. If neither icemaker or water dispenser is working chek your water supply line

Icemaker fill tube keeps freezing up.


The reason your fill tube to the icemaker is freezing up time and time again is simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and icemaker. It most likely always is the icemaker side because it is always harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric plugs that energize the solinoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down
to the closed position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a 1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the icemaker and a 3/8" for the water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like "Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same possition. Free info. from-

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.

When icemaker is filling water comes out door dispenser


I need the entire model # from the sticker inside the fridge section. My guess is this is the model that has a diode in the wiring harness that directs power to the valves and has gone bad letting power go to both valves. I would look and see if you also have water going into the icemaker when you press for water out of the dispenser. If there is no diode then the water valve is bad. I need the model # so I can look at a wiring diagram. You can look at the wiring to the water valve and see if it has a diode. It is black block and has two wires in one end and one out the other. If so the diode only can be bought and spliced in. Let me know so I can help.
