20 Most Recent Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator Questions & Answers


Good Morning Le Morrer,

I see that you are trying to hook up and start the ice maker on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB.

To connect Water supply Line to ice Maker inlet valve:
1 Disconnect your refrigerator from the electric power source.
2 Place the end of water supply line into sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (1/4 inch/6.4mm). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The nut and ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper tubing only) about 2 and 1/2 turns behind refrigerator and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface.
7 Turn ON the water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.
8 Reconnect your refrigerator to electrical power source.
9 To turn the ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (side mounted) or set the ice maker's ON/Off power switch to the "I" position (rear mounted).

After connecting the water supply, you will need to prime the water supply system.
To Prime The Water Supply System:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. There will be noticeable spurts and sputters as the system pushes air out through the system and dispenser nozzle. This is normal. This may take about 1 and 1/2 minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about 3 minutes to flush the system of any air and impurities. Empty the glass as needed.


The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an "SY EF" code on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB. The "SY EF" code stands for system error with the evaporator fan. This possibly means that there is something going on with your evaporator fan or it could possibly be a false error code. . I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

The Flashing #4 occurs when power is applied to the fridge and the control board goes through it's cycles and didn't detect a damper connection.

So its your air damper thats bad.

Did you check the motor and/or damper mechanism that directs cold freezer air into the refrigerator portion. If that is messed up the freezer is ok but fridge is ng. Also look at door seals for proper sealing.

I have had the same problem, and can't fix it at the refrigerator. You need an presure reglator or bladder on your hot water heater. when you have to much pressure it usually starts causeing problems at the hot water heater with leaks and works its way down in other areas of the house. We put a regulator at our water meter at first and it did not help.. if it is leaking at your fidge, you may want to check other appliances.
Hope this helps

What is the water line that you would like to install is it attaching to the refrigerator your question or is it a water line that goes under the refrigerator and to the dispenser or the ice maker? Is the model number of the refrigerator correct within your post?

Hello Chuck, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided you are receiving low water pressure at the dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator. This could be due to a dirty or clogged filter and I would check to see when you last replaced it. I have researched model FRS3R5EMB and show the water filter is part number WFCB.

If you have changed your filter within the past six or nine months the low pressure could be due to an obstruction within the water line or an issue within the dispenser. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope that this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Hello Gladys, thanks for your submission!
I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not sealing properly. You could be experiencing an issue with the gasket or the hinges. I would suggest checking the door hinges to assure that they are secure in position. You can also use a dollar bill to test the door gasket. Place a dollar bill in between the door and the body of the refrigerator. If the dollar bill pulls out with no to little resistance, you may need to replace the door gasket. I hope that this information is helpful to your repair. -Matt
