Question about Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No water to ice maker or drinking water

Good day,

I have good water pressure going up to the back of the refrigerato to (it looks like) a seloind valve of some kind. Since I have no water after that point, is there a way to check if the valve is bad, or no power going to the valve. Also is there some trouble shooting process I can go through to find the problem?

No ice or water? It's almost a sure bet the primary valve has failed. Volt ohm meter handy? Almost any reading on the meter at the terminals on the valve will mean the valve is probably good. No reading, replace primary valve. Also check the fill tube at the icemaker to see if it is frozen, if frozen valve will probably be at fault.

No water going into ice maker on our roper side by side refrig


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

No ice being made. water supply for drinking is OK. Model is about 3 years old. question: why no ice. does the automatic shut off arm control the water flow?


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off, Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat. Please reply if you need more help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

The pressure from a reverse osmosis system is not sufficient to operate the ice maker water valve. A water valve requires a minimum of 20 pounds of pressure without a refrigerator water filter, and 35 pounds of pounds of pressure with a refrigerator water filter. Manufactures do dot recommend installing an R/O system on the water supply to a refrigerator. The pressure may have been higher from your old system.

Ice maker not making ice


Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.

Ice Maker Not Making Ice


There is no pump per say.. the water pressure is all that fills the ice maker and provides water to the drinking dispensor. The solenoids are also different, one activates for ice maker and the other for drinking water. The fastest way to check water flow is to swap the wires on the solenoids so the drinking water "power" will now power the ice fill solenoid. Once the plugs are swapped and you press the drinking water lever the ice maker should pour water out the fill tube. If that works then you know the solenoid, tube, etc. are all fine. I'd suspect then that the ice maker fill solenoid isn't getting power when it is suppose to fill. Let me know what this test result is.
