Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frigidaire FRS26ZSH no water at dispenser or ice maker

Our ice maker and water dispenser were working perfectly untill we came back from a 5 day vacation. Untill then the water dispener and ice dispencer were used every day.
I have checked the supply and we have plenty of pressure where the water enters the fridge. I've unhooked the water line from the output side of the first solenoid and when I press the dispenser lever the water gushes out. When I try the same thing where the water enters the second solenoid (bottom right side of the fridge looking from the front. This looks like it is fed from the top of the fridge near the filter) there is no water. After that I tried thawing the water reservoir with a hair dryer. I've unplugged the fridge to help with any freezing in the lines. I've taken the filter out, filled it with water and left it on the counter to check if the water will flow through the filter and it does. I've tried the dispenser with the filter in and with the filter out.
Still no water!!!
Any suggestions?

    Hi John,
    I removed the assemblies and took them apart to clean them. They looked pretty clean! I've put it all back together and now when I press the dispenser there is a clicking noise comming from the back of the fridge. Once my wife comes home I'll have her press the dispenser and see if I can figure out where the click is comming from.

    If I replace the solenoids, I assume that it is just the coloured parts with the twin connectors that need to be replaced and not the complete unit. For example the green and yellow parts not the bue parts.

    neither the ice maker or water dispenser works. I took off the filter and when I push the water dispenser, a very small trickle of water comes out - very small. Checked the plastic water container - it's not frozen. help!

    I have no water to the ice maker and the water dispenser

    I have supply water to the first solenoid. I don't get any water out when I push the water dispenser button. I checked for 115 volts on the solenoid and had none when I pushed the water button. I also checked the solenoid coil with a ohm meter and it was not open, showing resistance. Any ideas were to go to now.

  1. I would remove both solenoids (one at a time-not to mix them up) pay attention and mark all parts- try cleaning or replacing them. Most are fairly common supply items. Paying attention to wiring and proper installation is important during re assemble. JOHN-LA

Frigidaire Gallery Professional Series - FRS26ZSH My ice and water maker have stopped working. First the water stopped then about 5 days later the ice maker stopped.


you will need to replace the water inlet valve, this runs your water and ice,, before you replace it take your water line off and hold it in a pot, then have someone turn the water back on , this will let you know for sure you are getting water to the valve,, if no water comes out then you have a water line prob,, have that fixed then hook it back up and turn it on, then you will need to run the water for about 2 -3 minutes to purge the air out of the line,,, if you rplace the valve you will need to purge also

Frigidaire FRS26ZSH -ice & water dispenser panel lost power


I think you will need to unplug the pin plug under the cover at top or bottom hinge. Check the voltage and if OK leave unplugged until you can remove the dispenser and I will try to help you from the power source. Sounds like a short in the board and related to the light socket. The fuse only stopped the short from doing further damage, You may need to locate the short before replacing the fuse or board. I have looked over the wiring diagram. If you find the short without my help just be sure to replace the fuse with the correct size. The only things are the chute heater or something in that area of the board went to ground. Do you have a voltage meter? Contact me later when ready, Sea Breeze

Frigidaire signaling water dispenser instead of ice maker


Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.
