I have a Frigidaire Professional fridge and the top ice maker does not make ice while the bottom one in my freezer works. Any ideas on why this would be happening? The water pressure is fine.
One of the water lines may be clogged.
There may be an ice maker reset.
Once I do all of my troubleshooting things and it won't work, I go for the big guns and call the company. They usually can give me info that works the first time...or tell me if it needs a pro.
I do this because I learned the hard way that sometimes if you do to much with appliances (fridges, washers and dryers are THE WORST) you end up with a way worse problem than you started and double the bill. So my two cents to help is call the company:
Thanks but no the water works fine I can dispense water from the front.
My panel is on the side of the door and I did turn the ice maker off by holding down the on off button but no red light came on it just turned it off, I waited for about 5 minutes and still the bottom ice maker in the freezer works but not the top one. Thank you
Frigidaire customer service is THE worst I have ever dealt with. 8 service calls for a brand new refrigerator for ice maker not working.
How do I remove the ice maker from a Fridgidaire Electrolux mdl #lfht1831qp0?
You need the owner's manual, which you can get here: www.searspartsdirect.com/
The name and numbers for your Frigidaire does not show up in the list of refrigerators listed on the Frigidaire website so I was unable to determine the type/model you have. Maybe someone else will have better luck with that.
I found a YouTube video that talks about how bad the ice maker is for all Fridgidaire products.... I usually recommend YouTube videos to do simple tasks...but this one totally made my jaw drop with all the issues people have with these items (it is a cartoon but really scathing--wow!):
The next video is a little more serious and may have some info of use:
All of this said, if it is under warranty, leave it be and call the company! Their contact info as it this link:
Why did the ice maker stop working after changing the water filter on a 3 door Frigidaire refrigerator? There is no water or ice feature on the door.
Either the filter is defective or it was installed incorrectly.
Our ice maker stopped working because it was frozen up. We removed it (check youtube--it's usually pretty easy) and set it outside until it completely thawed out. When we put it back it worked fine.
A few years later, we repeated the process, and when it didn't fix it a 3rd time, we bought a new one on ebay for less than $50.
My Frigidaire model FFHS2611LWF ice maker arm spring came off inside the ice maker arm. What do I hook it on after I get the spring on the arm?
There is a Frigidaire help line. www.repairclinic.com/
Hopefully they can point you in the right direction.
If it is still under warranty or it was recalled for that issue, you should be able to get it fixed for free.
There is a website called Fixya that offers help with situations like this.
I have a Frigidaire ice maker model #M1 SA8868 . It is getting no power on main black wire where should I look? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Have you tried the Repair Clinic? I seem to remember I was able to find information off their website for my Whirlpool.
The schematic for the unit is probably in a package in the back or bottom of the fridge. If you are relatively handy, you can follow it to end your problem. Of course you should be sure the connections are tight. It may be just that simple.
I installed my icemaker myself and aside from locating the wiring harness, it all came together perfectly. Frigidaire was a little less than helpful in procuring the harness, but I managed to find it on ebay.
The unit is working fine and yours probably will too. Recheck the installation. Good luck.
I have a Frigidaire side by side. I replaced the filter, I replaced the icemaker, I checked the water hose from pump to icemaker all clear, but there is still no ice. Any suggestions?
Make sure the freezer temperature is around zero degrees Fahrenheit. If the refrigerator is operating at the proper temperature, the icemaker or water valve could be defective.
I have a side by side Frigidaire that is about 2 months out of warranty...go figure. I first noticed the water was slowing down and then a few days later I noticed the ice tray was almost empty, but the arm was down to make ice. I checked the water line into the back of the fridge and it had good flow. The filter change indicator never came on, but I changed the filter anyway. I have an under sink RO system so the filter should not need changing anyway. Any ideas?
Need to check inside freezer where water comes into the ice maker. Sometimes they clog up. May pick up a used ice maker and see if it will work.
My ice maker quit making ice. Water is dispensing in front. I replaced the dual water inlet valve. Water is dispensing in front, but still no water in ice maker tray. Manually it makes ice. Why isn't it getting water in the tray? Do I need to replace the micro switch (inlet switch)?

Any luck getting the ice tray to fill? I have same problem and am planning to replace the solenoid valve that you mentioned replacing - to see if it helps send water to the ice tray; The tray arms aren't spinning either to try to spit out whatever would be in the tray ( once ice forms there if I can get water to go there.
I may have to replace the ice maker tray mechanism also - any thoughts?
I have a Frigidaire refrigerator, frs23fcdq0. The ice maker makes no ice. The water dispenser shoots water, but no ice. Sometimes it will make a batch, but the ice cubes are half the normal size.
It could be that your water line is frozen. I have had this happen when either my freezer or refrigerator is too packed. It will thaw out eventually, although slowly, if you unpack it a bit (assuming that's the problem).
Or you can try transferring everything to coolers and turn the fridge off for a day to allow the water tubes to thaw out.
I have also heard you can move the fridge away from the wall and heat the tubes up with a hair dryer to try to get the water running freely.
My ice maker is not working; someone said it could be called "water snot". It is a Frigidaire. This just started a week ago. It was making ice, but not full cubes, just partial.

Hey Steve, my icemaker did a similar thing after I installed it. I didn't have time to mess with it right then, but when I got back to it, the bin was full. I think it had something to do with the water line. They can be finicky when first installed, but seem to work themselves out. In any case it is working great now, and were building igloos in PA. Unless a component failed, yours will probably start working fine. Don't sweat it. Just give it a little time. The ice fairy will hook you up. Good luck with it. Iceman
My Frigidaire will not fill the ice bin for the door dispenser. What could be wrong?
The ice maker quit working on my Frigidaire Elite. Now I notice occasional spray leakage in back at the water inlet connection.
By H Miller
The ice maker on my Frigidaire side-by-side clicks constantly as soon as the arm on the ice maker is down. Water drips into the ice tray and down the front of the water dispenser. I have replaced the water valve, have good water pressure and the hoses aren't leaking that I can see.

My Frigidaire ice maker is cycling, but no water is released into the ice maker. Can the water valve freeze up, or has it broken?
By Terry Dale Looney from Weatherford, TX
Perhaps the water filter is either clogged, or has been moved about? Or have you moved your refrigerator and perhaps kinked the copper tubing? (03/23/2010)
We had the same problem with our Kenmore. Repair person said unplug for 24 hours to defrost the water line. Hope this helps!
Our Frigidaire icemaker quit working and we can't afford another one. Any suggestions? We had installed a new filter about 10 days earlier.

I turned my water off to replace a faucet and fix a water line and my ice maker in my Whirlpool side by side quit working too. I got the blow dryer out, took about five min. and my ice maker is working again! Thanks for the help! (03/02/2007)
I have a Whirlpool Gold side-by-side and its ice maker stopped working. I tried lowering the temperature and I checked the little black spigot thing for ice, but neither helped. I couldn't figure it out until I removed the ice maker. When I did, I found that it was a broken tab that held on the ejector gear (see www.repairclinic.com for diagrams).
To fix it I tried super glue, but that didn't work. Turns out super glue loses all strength in the freezer. Next I tried some glue I had left over from putting sprinkler pipes together. That held, but just barely, so finally I used a little ball of glue putty like a cap on the end of the tabs. That worked and I now have ice again.
I recommend taking out the ice maker to really see what the problem is. To remove mine I unplugged the frig, carefully removed the little door over the ice maker, unscrewed the 4 hex screws on the bottom of the ice maker, pushed in the little tab on the bottom left of the maker, slid the maker out, and unplugged it.

Yea! I went here and fixed mine. But I would like to save someone else the trouble I went through. I removed all of the components only to find out if I gently turned the fitting that the water line connects to in the back counter clock-wise it pulls out. And that where the frozen clog was! I am sure all models are not the same so do not try to force your fitting. I have a 2002-2004 Fridgidare side by side with water and ice in the door. The water supply line in the back is green and goes towards the top on the back side. Good Luck. (12/17/2008)
