Frigidaire FGHN2844LP ice freezing together. Replaced filter. Twenty hours later, ice maker not working, freezer warm, refrigerator temp. steady 40.


Hello Pat Havard,

I was pulling your owners manual to TRY to determine what could be done to block your freezer door or ice chute open during the filter changing process...

Today the ambient air temperature was at least 90 - 100°F
(degrees Fahrenheit)... To maintain 40°F your refrigerator
has to be working...

You need to look at your FREEZER side...
Your food, a pizza box... ice tray...
SOMETHING... in your immediate WORK area
is blocking vents... or proper closure...

Look at the door switch... make sure your light is OFF

My best guess... FILTER FIASCO induced.

Frigidaire side by side FFHS2322MBKA ice maker stopped working, but still dispenses water


Change the Water Solenoid Valve. This is a dual solenoid valve, one side is for water thru the door ... the other side supplies water to the ice maker and probably is bad. good Luck! Handy Henry

Unit is about 10 years old, bought new from Lowes. When I open the doors the bar or middle frame is warm to hot. Now the freezer and refrigerator is not cold. Ice started to melt down so I removed the ice...


I suspect the warm to hot is from a heater that keeps moisture from from condensing on that bar. you don't notice it when the unit is working properly. Make sure your condenser fan is running and that condenser is clean. You may have a compressor that is failing

Not making ice


Hi: Change or just remove the water filter first. As your water dispensing slowed that is a clue. If the water filter is that clogged it will cause a problem with the ice maker. Plus the water you drink is not filtered anymore. City water is being run through 2 years of crud. If you don't replace it just remove it. I hope this helps, Jeff

The water solinoid is not sending water to my ice tray


The 2 "problems" are most likely only 1 problem. The door frame has a heater that keeps water from condensing on the frame tween the freezer and refrigerator sections. It should be warm but not so warm that it is uncomfortable to keep your hand on it.

Now your saying verry little ice at best? Do you notice ice in the bin that the refrigerator has made? You can try switching the wires on the water solonid on the back of the fridge then push in the button on the water delivery switch (like filling a glass) if the valve is working the water should flow on into the ice maker and you can feel it or see it being in the ice maker. then you know the problem is, or is not in the water valve. If you leave it connected this way for an extended time like 4 to 6 hours you should notice a mess comming out of the water delivery spout in the front. This will be because the ice maker is comming around and asking for water to come into the ice maker. However because you have switched the wires on the valve it comes out the door. If you dont get any water out the door the Ice maker isthe most likely suspect but it could also be the wiring going to the valve.

If this helps you find the next step in solving your trouble please rate me has high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Frigidaire side by side model:FRS26HF6BW2


Check the trap door where the ice drops through, it might be stuck in the open position, solenoid that operates the door may be bad.

Frigidaire frostlfree upright freezer ice forming top interior door


Not sealing. warm air hitting cold air causing frost. also, door frame heater may not be working. most frames are "warm" to the touch. normally called an "anti sweat" heater.

Ice Maker water keeps running


Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.
