Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

Ice maker bar sticking at bottom now a loud grinding noise

We bought a used frig from our neighbors. The ice machine bar raises and comes back down but seems to get stuck right before it reaches the bottom. There is no ice in the way and if you manually push it down it will dump the ice and continue the cycle only to become stuck again. We noticed this going on for about 2 weeks or so and now occasionally we are hearing a loud grinding noise which lasts for about a half hour then quits on its own. This has happened a couple of times. An ideas or suggestions?

    I have a Frigidaire Refrigerator, Model FRS26ZRG side by side. The wire cut off arm is hung in the up or cut-off position and will not come back down and therefor will not make any ice. It seems to be locked or hung in the up position. I am afraid to force it back down. What is the problem there?

Loud noise coming from icemaker...noise decreases when i increase temp and goes away when icemaker shut off. I set the initial temp at 3 degrees, then let it make ice - after about 3 hours it sounded like...


The icemaker is pretty simple, there is a motor, a solenoid, and a couple of switches.

It sounds like the whole icemaker mechanism is jammed or has a broken gear, and the motor is trying it's darndest to turn the stuck mechanism (grinding it's gears in the process), or the gear has already gone, and what's left of the gear is dancing around in there.

My guess is either the $7 icemaker drive gear or the $94 icemaker assembly.

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice


Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

Buzzing intermittent


It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.

Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.
