Hi,
The arm should be down...
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Not making ice


Did you check to be sure that the arm wasn't raised to the off (FULL) position? Ice makers can be turned off by manually lifting the sensor arm up and latching it in the full position. To release, simply press down gently on the arm and it will return to normal position and ice making should resume. If you already knew this feature, I am not trying to make you feel silly, but there are some that would not be aware of this.

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.

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-

KitchenAid 25in KSRJ25CNST00 icemaker trouble. The LED light on side of freezer is blinking twice with a delay and repeats same sequence. No ice is making. Any suggestions on what to look for?


Try the reset button on the control panel. If that doesn't work, then try unpluging the refrigerator.
Also, make sure that ice tray shut off arm isn't in the up position. It should be in the unlock position one notch below the off position. This arm is used by the refrigerator from over filling the ice cube holding tray. Once the ice fills the tray. The ice in the bend will push up on the arm which
initiate the ice maker to stop making ice. As soon as you start using the ice in the bend and the arm falls below the off position. The ice maker will start making ice. GB....stewbison

Ice maker won't stop making ice. We put the metal flip facing up and it just keeps making ice. It should stop...right?


If the arm is up and locked in position, it should stop the ice maker. check that the bail arm is indeed pushed into the ice maker head, you will likely have to remove the ice maker with the 1-3 screws holding it in place, to see it. Check also that the other end of the bail arm is attached near the fill cup, if its not attached, that could be the reason. If the arm does not appear to lock in the upright position, or if it does and still does not stop ice production, you will need to replace the ice maker

My ice marker will not stop making ice the arm


This problem is going to be the ice maker itself. The arm you are talking about is the shut-off mechanism for the ice machine. Just before the ice machine starts to make ice, the arm slowly rises. Then the arm falls down, if there is ice blocking the arm from falling all the way down it will not make ice because there is plenty! If the arm is able to fall down completely, the ice machine will make ice like normal. If your ice maker is making ice regardless of the arms position, something is wrong with the ice maker. Depending on who replaces this, it could cost anywhere from $100 to $200.

Ice maker stopped making ice. I emptied ice holding tray and since then, if will not make ice. I adjusted arm in hole correctly. Arm is down and is in correct position to make ice. Still no ice. Please...


Fill the ice maker with water. If it freezes and dumps the the water control valve on rear of the refrigerator and near floor is defective and will need replace. If the water just freezes then the ice maker thermostat is the problem, Let me know,Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker stopped


Hi!
Please check these:
It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:
If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.
If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.
In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.
The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
