Question about Frigidaire FRS23R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

I need to change the actuator on a frigidaire side by side fridge model #GLHS68EEPB4. It's just for the side for water. My problem is that I can't figure out how to take off the front section of the water/ice section. There aren't any screws visible and I don't want to pull in the wrong area and brake the plastic frame. Please advise. thank you!

SOURCE: Ice maker

I just resolved an issue with my kenmore elite side by side refrigerator icemaker (model 106).
It was expensive because I took the long road to fixing the unit myself.

My problem: No water going up to the freezer water dispenser into the icemaker but the water in front of the door working just fine.

-first thing i tried was the simplest. The Internet is clogged with this miracle fix of using a hair dryer to melt the frozen water line going to the dispenser output. This is highly unlikely for our model since the water line is protected within the refrigerator frame.

-2nd thing I replaced my water filter (thinking that there wasn't enough water pressure to trigger the solenoid valve. $40, and still no luck.

-3rd thing was I tested for voltage going to the solenoid. No voltage going to solenoid, so I wasted $30 for a new solenoid.....still no water.

-4th thing was I ordered a new IR sensor and receiver (since the reciever end is where the relay that sends the voltage to the solenoid to turn on and allow water to go up to the dispenser).
My IR sender and receiver appeared to be working flakey.
Installed, still no water. $58 BUCKS ON EBAY (EVERYWHERE ELSE $100+)

-I finally removed the freezer front little white door, I TURNED OFF THE FREEZER SWITCH SO NO VOLTAGE WAS PRESENT, removed the release latch underneath the freezer unit and disconnected, and removed the freezer unit to inspect it further.
When I removed the protective white cover that covers the mechanical wheel, I had a few parts come flying out of it. Turns out that the wheel accessories were damaged. THERE ARE NO REPAIRABLE PARTS ON THE FREEZER UNIT. I FOUND ONE ON EBAY FOR $39 BUCKS + $9 SHIPPING! $48 BUCKS, SWAPPED THE HARNESS AND BOTTOM COVER, AND IN 20 MINUTES, I WAS BACK IN BUSINESS. STARTED MAKING ICE IN ABOUT A HALF HOUR!!!!!

when in doubt, replace the freezer unit for $48 bucks! 7 out of 10 times it will fix your problems. All techs replace the IR set at the same time too which will set you back another $58 bucks.
Good luck! ;)

SOURCE: Frigidaire fridge leaks where ice maker is on

Your leaking problem gives two possibilities. The water control valve for the ice maker side is defective and while shut off the water will continue to slowly flow and leak into the freezer compartment. The other possibility id the condensate defrost drain is blocked and frozen over behind the rear panel of the freezer and at the bottom of th coils. I believe your defrost condensate drain has a blockage of ice and will need to be defrosted and clean the condensate line from the freezer to the condensate collection plate below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Check your fan that goes from the freezer to the refrigerator. It is probably faulty. If not then check your defrost timer.
I hope this helps

I have a frigidaire gallery series side by side and everytime the fridge says the water filter needs to be changed now it leaks a good bit of water from the bottom of the fridge.


There is an O ring that will leak water into the overflow pan under the fridge. I'd clean the pan too to eliminate bad odors. You must shut off the water supply before changing the filter element. There is no shut off valve built into the filter or its housing.

Water and ice not dispensing on Frigidaire side by side


We have a similar fridge were told that it has a resivoir inside that needs to fill with water before it will start to dispense water. Had to stand holding in the actuator for quite a while befrore it started putting out any water. Shoud be the same with the ice maker, but there is an arm inside the freezer that controls how much ice you get it could be turned off.

Bypassing a filter


They do make a bypass for this which you can get at http://www3.sears.com/.  Will need to know the entire model # from the sticker on the inside of the fridge.  If you have trouble let me know.  I would the the model # also to help further.  Also, it may say something about it in the owners manual.  Let me what you find.
