Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Inconsistent ice maker

Our icemaker makes ice for a while then it won't. We got a new refrig filter, disconnected and it started working better. Sometimes if we hit it, it works better...but not always. Ice cube size is good. nothing seems to be getting stuck...should we buy a new one or how do you test these to see if it is just a gear or valve or something simple?

If you hit the ice maker or do you hit the water filter? if you hit the ice maker then I would say you need a new ice maker if you are hitting the water filter then you may have a frozen water line.

The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig is frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear.

Tip

How to install/replace Icemaker in top bottom fridge


Start by unplugging fridge. Take 1/4 inch nut drive ( sometimes phillips ) remove bottom screw from under ice maker. Next loosen top to screws mostly out. The screws are located in brackets near the ice tray behind the front cover. Ice maker has brakets that the top screws slide into. Lift the icemaker up and out off the screws. Next disconnect the quick connect that is on the back wall of the freezer. Some models are hard wired into the icebox. If this is like yours than disconnect the quick connect from the icemaker itself. Take icemaker out of freezer and connect quick connect into or from new ice maker. Slide the new icemaker onto screws and into place. Screw bottom screw in and than tighten the top two screws. Place ice maker arm down so it can make ice. Give it 24 hours to cycle before it starts producing ice. Most of the time icemaker starts making ice within a couple hours. Plug in fridge.

Ice maker stopped making ice,


Ice makers are pretty generic. Let's start with the water supply. You are positively getting water to the water valve in the back of the refrigerator? You can check this by disconnecting the copper or vinyl line on the water valve located at the back if the machine. If , you are getting water through this line, then, reach into the icemaker mold to see , if, there is ice or water in the mold. If, there is no water or ice, you have a defective water valve. Checking the water valve is easy, but, not for the faint of heart. Disconnect the leads to the water valve and apply 120 Volts to the water valve, if, the water valve doesn't activate the valve is shot. Sometimes a leaky water valve will cause the fill tube for the ice maker to freeze shut. You can check this by manually, with a flashlight by looking into the tube that supplies the water to the icemaker, if, it is frozen solid, the water valve is in need of replacement. If the aforementioned things are not the problem, get a new ice maker.

Icemaker


You might have a frozen line. Also and this seems more important to you its prob to cold, Trust me to cold of a refrig will cause hollow ice cubes first leading to a frozen line. Clean your coils, if you have another refrig empty out into that, unplug it leave doors open a couple days. If you can get to water line use a hair dryer from a distance defrost line, turn down freezer half knotch 1 full one at maximum. should fix issues, especially if filter already changed. If this all check prob a clogged line, not just frozen.
