Question about Electrolux EI28BS56IS (278 cu ft) Bottom Freezer Commercial French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker doesn't work but water does

Ice maker still doesn't work but water does even after the upgrade kit was installed as recommended by Electrolux. The repairman even thought the water pressure at the door was less than normal but couldn't find a cause and afterward it was a little better but after 24 hours still no ice. Any ideas?

Having trouble installing


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble installing the ice maker kit, part# IM501. I see that you are curious if there is an extension for the water inlet tube. There is no extension. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to better assist in installing the ice maker kit for you. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How to install the water for the ice maker


To hook up an water supply to an ice maker falls under two catagories. The first being that a water supply valve is already present behind the machine and therefore all you have to do is get a water line, preferably a braided steel ice maker line that can be purchased at home depot or lowes. Then you just sonnect the water line to the water supply at the wall the to the water valve on the machine, located on the lower right or left side in the back. The second scenario is yoo don't have a supply line, and in that case your going to have to locate the nearest water line, most likely under the sink, and you'll have to run a line. They have an ice maker installation kit at home depot and lowes, and you may have to drill a hole through the cabinet to make the line unseen, or even through the floor and back up again. Either way its not a difficult task, just takes time and patience. Good luck.

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn't take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Ice maker not making ice


I don't recommend repair on this unit. Simple replacement. Try to find Ice maker kit @ local home depot or lowes that is same. You can buy whole kit for $50-$75.00.

You have another plugged filter. That is why you ice cubes are hollow, the water is flowing so slowly into the ice maker, it does not fill up.

Recommend you install an external filter somewhere in the feeder line that connects to the rear of the refrigerator. The are surprisingly inexpensive, compared to the filter inside the new 'fridges. I recommend you buy a replacement external filter cartridge at the same time you buy the external filter kit. Of course you will need to change the internal filter one more time or bypass it per any instructions provided with your fridge.

My whirlpool ed27dqx refridgerator quit making ice immediately after I had my reverse osmosis drinking water system upgraded. I replaced the ice maker unit and the dual water valve. I have always had water...


The pressure from a reverse osmosis system is not sufficient to operate the ice maker water valve. A water valve requires a minimum of 20 pounds of pressure without a refrigerator water filter, and 35 pounds of pounds of pressure with a refrigerator water filter. Manufactures do dot recommend installing an R/O system on the water supply to a refrigerator. The pressure may have been higher from your old system.

Ice from ice maker does not taste right


Hi

Ice storage bin needs to be emptied and washed. Unsealed packages in the refrigerator and/or freezer compartments may be transmitting odors/tastes to the ice cubes.
Interior of the refrigerator may need cleaning.
Water chemicals. Installing an in-line filter can help with many odor/taste complaints.
An open box of baking soda in the refrigerator section can help with preventing the transmitting of food odors.
This is a common in-line water filter, they are fairly easy to install and usually come with instructions.

3925f83.jpg
Even when your well or municipal water supply provides healthy, potable water to your ice maker, some impurities may remain. These can affect the smell or taste of the ice cubes, and therefore the beverages in which you serve them. A taste and odor water filter on the incoming water-supply line--such as our charcoal "Universal Replacement Water Filter"--can help a lot.

Also, over time, the ice cube bin can absorb difficult-to-remove odors from the freezer. Some manufactures recommend that you replace the bin every 2 to 3 years, whenever it seems to be retaining objectionable odors and transferring them to the ice cubes.


A Fixya Rating would be appreciated.

Thanks

"stuck" ice maker


Bunyan, the problem is in your ice maker control module. There's a thermostat in there that regulates power to the harvest motor. When it is satisfied (at the right temp to harvest ice) it closes allowing power to the motor to continue harvest. The safest repair for this is to replace the complete ice maker assembly, part#1129316 (~$125.00). If you feel up to the task, you can disassemble the control module and replace just the thermal cutout, part#3206319 (~$15.00)... but this is not recommended. The part (#1129316) I provided for the entire ice maker is an upgrade to what you currently have. I highly recommend this route.
