Ice maker freezed up and freezer not keeping items freezed up

Just recent, my ice maker wouldn't make ice, so I took it off and cleaned it, at which time I had ice on the back panel by the ice maker and some ice just to the right of the fan. I took some hot water and got the ice off, in which to take ice off I just rupped the hot hand towel on it till it was all off, then I took the bottom tray and took some ice that was at the bottom part by the fan on both sides. I then put everything back, I didn't hook up the water line to it til the next day, but after doing it their was no water running to fill the tray, so this tells me that the line is frozen up, but if the ice maker has no water running to it, why won't my freezer keep things frozen. I did notice some snow like ice to the back panel when checking it. Can some one assist me and briefly tell me what is the problem, maybe I can fix it with having to call a service man.

Your automatic defrost system is not working which is the indication of the frost on the back wall. When the freezer does not come down to temperature it also affects the ice maker. This kind of problem is from a bad timer, defrost heaters or defrost thermostat. I do not think you want to tackle this problem yourself. Call a service man from an appliance store that handles your product and give him the same information you gave here with the exception of the removal of the frost on the back wall.

ICE MAKER

to solve the frozen food problem, turn the temp back to 4. this should be the factory recomended setting. the only dispensing crush ice is probably a bad solinoid. you will find this behind the back wall. it engages to lift the thin metal rod on the bottom of the ice bucket to dispense cubed ice. and the ice being frozen in the bucket is probably a bad ice flapper in the door. it's letting warm moist air into the ice bucket that is freezing

I have a FRS26ZSHB FRIGIDAIRE. I replace the ice maker and the valve and it still does not make ice.

do you have water at the dispenser if so when you replaced the icemaker did you replace the harness that clip that usually come with the new item. If not the freezer may not be cold enough for the imkr to freeze properly are the item you put in the freezer soft or take a long time to freeze may have a freon issue

Freezer and icemaker freezes, jams.

I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.

Amana ARB9058CS Bottom Freezer - tremendous frost build-up in freezer on left side near ice maker at top of drawer

  1. I am not expert but this exact same thing happened to me - same model of fridge. The line which brings water in is frozen. I don't know how to solve it permanently, but if you take out the two produce drawers you can see where the water comes through. Put a hair dryer blowing on it for a few minutes and it will get it going again.

Sub-Zero 550 - freezer unit is chilling, but not freezing

Ice maker was intermittent at best - ice was often just a shell. After two failures to correct we had the ice maker (a Whirlpool - on a Sub Zero - Go figure) replaced. Then the paddle that detects the ice level broke. Next step a new GE.
