Frigidaire Side by Side Icemaker

Ice is getting stuck on the top of the icemaker. When the paddles cycle around, they jam ice into the icemaker and therfore stop the ice making process. Any solutions?

    I have the same problem with my Kenmore Elite 10652603100, I understand that there is a "upgrade kit" consisting of a new ejector and stripper but I havn't found the part number for it yet. Maybe someone could help out on this if they know the number and source.

    Our ice tray jams up off and on, but this week it's been constant. It used to also never STOP making ice. Currently the trays are full, but won't spit out ice, so this is a new one. We've had various issues since it was new, but nothing too serious. Now, almost 4 years later, it's been giving us trouble for a week straight... and it's 91 degrees out!

Icemaker is not making ice and the refrigerator is not getting cold


Push the white paddle in three times slowly within 15 seconds. Then wait 2 minutes. You should see the ice maker start to cycle. If the ice maker doesn't cycle, replace the ice maker. If you need a new ice maker, you can go to the link below

The ice maker has 1 piece of ice that always gets jammed and will not get ejected


on the underside of the icemaker there is a metal heating element make sure it is flush to the bottom all the way around. If the element does not heat the bottom ice will not pop out.

Jenn-Air JCD2389GE side-by-side refrigerator ice maker. Numerous problems since purchased in 2002. The latest is flapper door opening and closing repeatedly at two second intervals and water pouring out...


Getting to the more serious water leak problem, it will be likely caused by one of two problems. the first, more common problem, is the solenoid for the icemaker valve is likely stuck open. sometimes particles in the water will literally prevent the solenoid from closing, like jamming a stone between a piston inside an engine cylinder, causing your water to overfill your icemaker, fill up the bucket, and pour through the flapping door that you also have problems with. the second possible problem, is your icemaker itself has stopped, or to be more precise, the motor has ceased up, and it happened to stop at the point in the icemaker cycle when it calls for water. You can check to see if the valve is the problem, by removing the icemaker entirely from the freezer, its held on by 3 screws, or possibly one screw and two metal or plastic clips, also unplug the icemaker from where it connects electrically. Assuming you have the water to fridge turned off presently, turn the water back on, and see if water comes through the fill tube. If it does, the valve is your problem, I suggest replacing both the primary and secondary valves. 12001892, 61005626 are the two part numbers.
If water is not coming out of the fill tube, take a look at your icemaker. Look at the icemaker as it was when mounted, and inspect the center ejector shaft, it runs down the middle top of the icemaker, and has 11 fingers on it, it is what rotates around to eject cubes. Is it in the "home" position, i .e. the position it sits while water freezes. The home position, when looking at the ice maker in its normal orientation, is when the ejector shaft teeth are pointing at 2:00. If the teeth are in any other position, either the ice maker was disconnected during its cycle, or the motor has stopped. To be certain, with the water remaining off, reconnect the ice maker, pour about 8 oz of water in the ice maker, if after 24 hours there is no ice ejected, then you have a bad ice maker. part # D7824706Q

In regards to your flapper door problem. since the path of water went through the door dispenser,its possible you may need to replace electric panel for dispenser. An inconvenient fix is to unplug the connection for the dispenser, located either at the top, under hinge cover, or at the bottom, after removing toe plate.

Ice maker stopped working. Red light is blinking.


  • That means no flow of water to icemaker. So check the solenoid valve paddle is stuck/jammed due to a fault in the Valve; replace valve.
  • accumulation of frost in the water supply tube &/or blockage
  • defrost button stuck
push the door close button with your thumb, insert the ice tray, any water flowing into the icemaker??----------- observe the position of the paddle & don't forget to check the defrost button is not engaged.......sodeep

My icemaker was working at one time but now is not working .. I can feel the ice inside the icemaker unit.


Often these icemakers just get jammed because the ice cubes stick together. Carefully dislodge all of the existing ice and it should be ok

Water but no ice. ice in tray


If you have a "paddle" switch just below the icemaker make sure there is tension on it, i.e. the tension spring might be loose. Make sure the tension spring end is inserted into a tiny hole. Mine wasn't, I did it and ice maker works fine now.
