Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser


Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Ice makere is not making ice


Several Solutions.

Icemaker filler tube inside the refrigerator frozen. Thaw out with hair dryer. Shut off water, disconnect water inlet line to the ice maker. Insert a flexable item - I used a zip tie through the inlet linlet fitting to make sure the tube was clear. Re-connect the line and you should have ice soon.

2nd Solution, replace the water inlet valve to the refrig. at bottom back right of refrigerator. Easy To Do.

Ice maker stopped dropping ice or even making ice.


Try using a hair dryer to thaw out the rubber tubing leading to the ice tray. On mine, I opened up the front door to the icemaker and found the rubber tubing leading in. I squeazed it, it felt frozen, so I applied heat. Water began dripping out, the area thawed, and I had ice again within a short period of time.

yes where thr water go\es into the ice maker is where the problem lies, take the ice maker out and then you'll see the tuding where the water goes into the ice maker. Then take a hair drier or a shop vac reversed and thae out the utde and the water will flow after it is thawed.

Ice Maker


Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.
