Frigidaire GLRS237ZA Side by Side Refrigerator

The icemaker no longer makes ice. I checked the water line running into the rear of the refrigerator and it is carrying water in. The water dispenser functions as well. The icemaker is in the on position. Since the cold water dispenser works, why is it that the water to the icemaker seems not to flow? The refrigerator had not been turned off; it just stopped making ice after I had to manually switch from crushed to cubed ice by adjusting the lever behind the ice holder.

There are two solenoids after the water inlet solenoid, one is for the filtered water and the other is for your ice maker... the green hose that runs up the back of your fridge. ice maker solenoid may be burnt out supplying no water to the ice maker or.... it could be the ice maker control board.

    Check the water tube. I understand there is a new tube that is longer. My tube freezes up and the ice maker quits. Also the short tube drips water down the back wall and into the evaporator fan. The fan then starts hitting the ice and makes a loud buzzing noise. After that the fan will clog with ice and stop spinning. This stops the flow of cold air from the evaporator and the freezer temp will start climbing until the ice melts. If you hit the refrigerator door switch five time it will force a defrost cycle and sometimes clear the problem. By this time everything in your freezer will be defrosted.

How to fix the ice maker on a side by side frigidaire ice box

Thank you for your post, friend!

I see that the icemaker on your Frigidaire refrigerator works intermittently. I would like to ask you some troubleshooting questions. When was the last time you replaced your water filter? Have you checked to verify the water valve is completely opened? I would also check to make sure there are no kinks in your water line. If you continue to experience these issues with your icemaker please comment back. I would like provide any additional information if possible. -Matt


The ice dispencer is always running out of ice there is a setting for making extra ice for hot day but lost my manual

To increase ice production for special occasions, such as parties, push the Touch Pad _ for
3-5 seconds to activate this feature. A green light will appear above the Touch Pad. Push the
Touch Pad _ again for 3-5 seconds to deactivate.

Here is a link to your manual.

My frigidarie refrigerator ice maker does't work

Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Ice makere is not making ice

Several Solutions.

Icemaker filler tube inside the refrigerator frozen. Thaw out with hair dryer. Shut off water, disconnect water inlet line to the ice maker. Insert a flexable item - I used a zip tie through the inlet linlet fitting to make sure the tube was clear. Re-connect the line and you should have ice soon.

2nd Solution, replace the water inlet valve to the refrig. at bottom back right of refrigerator. Easy To Do.


Does not make ice

You must check whether or not you are getting water. Disconnect the water line to the water valve located in the back of the refrigerator. If, you have water from the supply , then you may a defective water valve. Changing the ice maker is usually the right move. The kit comes with a new water valve and head. Just to make sure. Check the water supply tube to the ice maker in the back of the freezer. If , it is frozen then no water can come through. If, it is frozen then you definitely have a water valve problem.


Do you hear it trying to draw water into the ice tray? If so, there might be an internal problem you can't fix yourself. especially since the fridge is dispencing water. Is the arm inside the ice maker pushe down? This is what tells the ice maker to fill and make the ice.

Let me know if this helps.

Icemaker not working,water is fine,no water to the icemaker.

What is the temperature inside of your freezer. It has to be at least 17 degrees or below for the ice maker to work.

My icemaker is not working

Tryusing an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often getrid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace thewater valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.
