Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The ice maker

We came home to the ice maker motor that sends the ice out the door running with both extra ice, cubes, and filter lights on. It runs and will not stop. I have pushed and held down buttons, unplugged to see if that would break the cycle, nothing has helped.

Ice maker water will not shout off Model WRS965CIAE it just runs till the tray overfills


Hello Andy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have one of two problems.

1.) Ice maker module - Part Number 821515
http://www.ebay.com/bhp/ice-maker-module.

Fortunately, your ice maker is repairable. The module is like a little computer. It has a circuitry, a motor and a rotating gear set. The module tells the water solenoid valve when to turn on and how much water to fill the cube tray. Then it reads a sensor telling the module that the cubes are frozen. Then it turns on a heater under the cube mold. After a period the module tells the motor to turn on and harvest the ice cubes. It also has a lever arm on/off switch.

Watch the video. Remove the module from the ice maker. You may need a small flat head ***** driver to pop off the cover to get to it. Inspect the circuitry for any burn marks.

You will need to jump start the ice maker after reassembly and if you decide to just buy a new one.
1.) Insert a piece of 12 or 14 gauge jumper wire into the two holes on the face of the module marked: "T' and "H".
2.) Hold in the door light switch.
3.) After the module starts wait 5 seconds and remove the jumper, while still holding in the door light switch, until the ice maker has completer it's cycle and fills with water.
This will not solve your problem. This is how to start the icemaker - not shown in the video

Module Cost: Sears $98.56 + Tax
Ebay $25.00

2.) Ice Maker Water Solenoid Valve: Part Number W10341320.
If your ice maker is filling with water, then the solenoid is working, but the spool valve may be sticking and not closing quickly.

See general replacement video.

Solenoid Valve Cost: Sears $80.00
Search the internet for best price including used.

Ice maker not dropping ice


Need more info. Are there ice cubes in the storage section just behind the freezer door? You may have turned the ice-maker OFF. When your depress the ice flipper, does the motor run behind the door? The motor may be burned out or the ice cubes in the storage section are so melted together in a giant glob that the agitator cannot turn.Or, maybe someone turned OFF the water supply.

I have a whrilpool refrigerater the ice maker will not fill with water?


Bonjour,
Ice makers can clog. The water valve can stick open or closed or even not work at all. The water fill nozzle can clog with ice or food. If the unit has been moved the water line could be kinked or the water filter may be clogged. Maybe the water valve for the ice maker water line is turned off. Is there one under the sink? Inside most ice makers there is a thermostat that tells the ice maker that the water is frozen and it's time to dump the ice cubes. That starts a geared motor running to dump out the cubes. And in some cases a mold heater is turned on to help break the ice cubes loose. A lot of ice makers have a cam attached to the motor that turns with the shaft. When the ice cubes are gone the cam starts a timer to refill the ice maker with fresh water to make some more ice cubes. Most "fill" cycles of ice makers are "timed fill". The fill cycle has to start and stop to get fresh water into the ice maker. There may be another thermostat that monitors the air temperature where the ice maker is mounted. If that thermostat thinks the air is not cold enough to freeze water nothing happens. If all the steps don't happen at the right time no ice cubes are made.

Ice cube maker makes ice cubes ever once and a while, the condenser fan turns slowly. is this why it doesn't make ice cubes and the frezzer side is not cold enough? condenser fan going out? monogram...


Good day,
The ice maker speed of production is determined by the freezer temperature. If the freezer temperature is warmer than normal then the cycle thermostat in the ice maker will take longer to reset for the next harvest, causing low ice production.
More important, the condenser fan motor running too slowly can cause the compressor to run overheated and cause serious and expensive damage.
If in your opinion, it is running too slow, the issue should be addressed as soon as possible.

Ice maker does not make much ice. I just changed the water filter and reset the ice maker by turning it off. It just makes a few cubes in 24 hours.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. When an icemaker still makes ice but in a reduced capacity it is usually the result of other problems.

Either there is ice build up on the evaproator coils due a defrosting problem that you do not see or the evaporator fan motor is not running fast enough.

Here is a way to find out. Unplug the unit and use a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for at least 2 hours. This is a manual external defrosting that will rid the evaproator coils of any ice build up.

Plug the unit back in. Over the next 30 hours check to see if your ice made result is much more than before the manual defrost.

If this improves your ice made result then you probably have a defrosting problem with your unit.

You did not say if the cubes were smaller or not so I have to assume the cubes currently are normal in size and that water flow and ice maker fill timing are fine.

Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.


I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

Why doesn't my ice maker work?


You do not list model number, so this will be very generic. If you have cubes in the ice bin, and when you try to dispense them the duct door opens and the auger motor runs, check the auger in the ice bin itself. Check where the spiral auger meets the plastic part on front of the auger. Drive part likely seperated.

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.
