How do I "Prime the Water Supply System" refereed to in use and care guide that came with my new Kenmore French Door Bottom Freezer, #253.70413411. Cannot find instructions in the manual only reference to...


Assuming you followed the water line installation directions and you have water available to your new refrigerator/freezer here is the rest of the "priming" info you requested. (basically it tells you how to run a bunch of water through the system by filling cups or glasses to remove any debris and/or air...

Automatic Ice & Water Dispenser
Priming the Water Supply System
1. Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle. 2. Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. It may take about 1½ minutes. 3. Continue dispensing water for about three minutes to flush the system and plumbing connections of any impurities (stopping to empty the glass as necessary).
Ice Maker Operation & Care After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill completely.
Turning the Fresh Food Ice Maker On and Off Ice production is controlled by the ice maker's On/Off icon on the control panel. Press and hold the "Ice Off" icon for three seconds to turn the ice maker "ON" or "OFF". The ice maker is turned off when the LED above the "Ice Off" icon is illuminated.
Using the Ice Maker after Installation Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime the water supply system. Air in new plumbing lines can result in two or three empty ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.
CAUTION
For proper dispenser operation, recommended water supply pressure should fall between 30 psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may cause water filter to malfunction.
NOTE The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after three minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle.
IMPORTANT On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could occur in normal operation of the ice maker. If you start seeing these more frequently, it may be an indication of low water pressure or the water filter needs to be replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its useful life and becomes clogged with particles, less water is delivered to the ice maker during each cycle. Remember, if it's been six months or longer since you last changed your water filter, replace the water filter with a new one. Poor quality household water may require the filter to be changed more frequently.
IMPORTANT Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, set the ice maker's On/Off icon to Off and turn off the water supply valve; otherwise, the ice maker's fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it attempts to operate without water.
Hope this helps. Randy

Installing frigidaire ice maker


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

Depending on which style Frigidaire refrigerator you have it is different priming each water line. For a top mount refrigerator you would need to install the icemaker and turn it on with the wire arm. The first cubes of ice for 24 hours should be discarded. On a side by side refrigerator and a french door bottom mount you would need to push on the water dispenser for two to four minutes releasing the water into a glass. I hope this information is helpful.

Hi, Just replaced the optics on the Whirlpool icemaker. They seem to be working fine but still no fill and no ice. What a pain.


Hi,
Below I found a website that might answer your questions, this is not a big problem.
Optics Video
Below the video is a picture of the board, it shows you how to jump the circuit to advance the ice maker, this also can be done without removing the board. By using a standard screw driver the make contact between the black and black with white tracer. This will advance the ice maker into a harvest mode and prime the ice maker.
Good Luck

For the past month the ice maker is not dispensing ice cubes. The water supply valve is turned on, there is no kinks in the water source line and the ice maker is turned on. I ran out of ideas. Do you have...


Hi

The water tube that supplies water to the ice maker is possibly frozen up.

The way to check this is to empty all food out of both sections and store alsewhere, then turn off and unplug the unit. Wait for 24 to 36 hours with the doors partially open to allow all the ice to melt.

Change the water filter and plug in and switch on.

Run off around a gallon of water to prime the system. You should then get chilled water around 4 hours later and ice after 12 hours.

If there is still no ice you may find that the trace heater on the ice maker water tube is faulty and may need to be replaced

Not producing ice


Did you by some chance put the ice maker in "vacation" mode. There's a little lever on it that turns it on and off. Check your owners manual - you do still have the manual don't you!

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.
