It sounds like you need to adjust the size of the ice cubes.

If they stick together in a long row, to much water, and then of course if they are too small that is also a problem. All you have to do is remove the outer cover of the icemaker and look for the set screw. It will stand out from the others. and be marked with a Plus and a Minus sign. Whichever you are having the problem with, adjust accordingly. I would try 1/4 turn increments. See how that works after One day and then re-adjust as needed.
Hope this helps you out.

I have a brand new (2 days) Frigidaire Gallery series, 23CU side by side that is not making enough ice. We are getting water from the door, the ice maker will only drop about 3 times in 24 hours. the...


Good day,
Light usage in a cool kitchen will reduce ice production substantially.
When the ice maker harvests, it turns on a calrod unit located on it's bottom, that frees the cubes, and as well the heat from the calrod heats up an internal thermostat in the ice maker to a temperature in excess of 70 degrees.
Then it stays at rest, until the cycle thermostat reaches 12 to 14 degress and then performs another harvest cycle.
If the machine runs little, and the fan in the freezer is not circulating cold air, the harvest times will be extended.
Turning the freezer colder will always help.
There is a possibility, the thermostat in the ice maker is out of calibration, and the ice maker needs replaced. But try the settings first, and give it a week or two, before calling for service.
You have a lot iof time under warranty to resolve this issue.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Frigidaire model glrs267zcwi side by side. Crushed ice comes out when either the crushed or the cubed button is depressed. How to fix it please?


It sounds like the water line to the ice maker is partially obstructed (probably semi-frozen) and the unit is making smaller than normal ice cubes. This causes the ice ejector to "shatter" the smaller cubes, producing the appearance of crushed ice.

The easiest thing to try is make sure the water line connection inside the freeezer isn't frozen. A hair dryer can be used to thaw the inlet to the ice maker, but just be careful. Remove some of the product in the compartment so you have enough room to work.

Ice cube button is lite but the only dipenses crushed ice


We have had this problem on occasion. The lever up in the ice dispencer gets jammed with frost and ice. If you remove the ice bucket/auger and let it thaw or just rinse it with water and dry it. Give it a try. -Matt

Ice Cube maker stops making cubes as they are being made ....


Ice makers use a small heating element to release the ice from the mold tray..sounds like that isn't working and everything else is. Check to make sure all electrical connectors coming from the ice maker are properly seated into their mating connectors. If that doesn't solve your problem, you may be better serevd by just replacing the entire icemaker assembly.. Hope that helps...

Side by side gallery ...water leak


  • it sounds like the water valve is not closing fast enough.
  •  this will cause the ice-maker to overflow a little.
  •  your ice-maker may have an adjustment on it to control how long it keeps the water valve on. 
  • it should be a screw with a + and - sing on it. it may be under the ice-maker plastic cover.
  • if it keeps doing it then you may need a new water valve.
