The light stays on, actually. RF265/6/7 models have a blue LED water filter indicator that remains lit in normal mode. After about 5 months [on a 300 gal. filter] the LED indicator will turn pink and then red at about 6 months. Derived from RF266 users manual, hope this helps.

Why is icemaker not working


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the ice maker is not working in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FPHG2399PF. Please follow these steps to resolution:

    1)Make sure the ice maker power switch is on. This button is located on the ice maker itself.

    2)Make sure there is not a small cube caught in the ice maker itself. If there is, carefully remove it.

    3)Check your water filter. Water filters should be changed roughly every 6-8 months. Also make sure your water filter is seated correctly. Try taking out the filter and re-installing it. Listen for 2 clicks and make sure it is flush with the water filter housing.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

To replace water filter, turn off icemaker how


The wire like switch that hovers above the icemaker needs to be in the up most position. This shuts the water valve off to the ice maker. Remove the maker tray and dump the existing ice. When changing the filter, twist off and remove as per the directions that come with the replacement filter. Hand tighten and do not twist on with a wrench. The rubber seals are soft and make a positive seal with out too much force.

Ice maker not making ice, but water dispenser working, just changed filter


If you changed the filter than water may not have made it to the icemaker yet. If you have givin it 24hrs than check these.

There are only 3 things that will prevent an icemaker from not making ice.

1) Temperature in freezer. Most icemakers require that the temp in the freezer is at a minium of 6 degrees. If the thermostat in the icemaker is not reading this temp or below it will not let the icemaker call for water to make ice.

2) Icemaker. Is the arm on the icemaker in the correct position. Most models the arm should be down to operate and up to be off. Faulty icemaker. The internal components of the icemaker may have went out.

3) Water inlet valve. If the silinoid for the icemaker on the inlet valve is stuck it will not allow water to the icemaker. Over time inlet valves wear out.

Troubleshooting- Check the temp in freezer. If not 6 degrees or below you have another problem with your freezer. If at 6 degrees or below and you have ice and water through door unplug fridge, switch the two hoses from the inlet valve (NOT Possible on all inlets so check to make sure you can remove the hoses by pushing in on the cylinder that hose feeds into and pulling hose out) Switch the hoses than press the water through door feature. If you get water inlet valve is good. If you dont have ice and water though door than have your inlet valve tested. If inlet is good and temp is good replace icemaker. If you have any questions or need further assistance please respond. Thank you

Kenmore side by side icemaker bin on door, 6mths old, water is only filling part of the ice maker and those cubes are not very large, also changed water filter in Nov and red light is on again to change...


Concur with the water valve solenoid; have had this experience several times with two way and even three way valves. Pull the unit and remove the mixing solenoid after the water is shut off. Sometimes a simple good cleaning and reassembly can make a difference but a replacement is the best answer. Your water dispersion is timed by the solenoid to fill the icemaker. Ergo, the water being dispensed at both ice AND drinking should flow at 1 ounce per second, optimally. The filter issue could indicate the presence of hard water debris already in the system and you'll need to trace that all the way back to the plumbing valve. If it's a needle tap, remove it and plumb in a good valve, I hate those things.

Our Maytag icemaker stopped making ice suddenly after we changed the filter. It dispenses water only.


Does the water have a good flow ? Did you try putting the old filter back in ? Never change the filter just because a little red light comes on . Only replace when the ice cubes get small or the water dispensor flow gets slow . I have found new filters that were bad . Distributors make a lot of money for filters just because of that little red lite . Not just maytag , but all other brands also . Try pouring about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes but doesn't fill , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , and holds the cubes for a long period of time , replace the icemaker . Also , you may need to clean the coils of dust , lint , etc....

There is water to icemaker but it does not make ice.


Check if the icemaker inlet valve is opening and if the icemaker solenoid is working.

If the icemaker has a filter also replace the filter.

To reset the filter light you need to hold the button in for 3-5 seconds , the light will usually flash while you hold the button down then it will go solid and then go out once you release the button. The ice maker will only make ice when the freezer is cold enough approx -14c . Did it make ice ok before ? There is the possibility that when changing the water filter air got into the system and has not bleed out of the ice maker feed tube yet.
The Ice maker can usually be put into a test mode by turning it off , wait 30 secs then turn it back on and press the ice level sensing paddle back three times within 15 secs of switching the ice maker back on . The ice maker should then go through a forced harvest cycle and ask for water at the end of it.
Hope this helps
