  1. I haven't seen to much on these icemaker so I figured I would start. If anyone knows a good info source I would appreciate it. OK, here goes.  Icemaker has been leaking and when I got to this one I  couldn't even remove the icebucket. We agreed I would return after giving some time to thaw. After thawing I wasn't able to harvest using the TH jumper, so I checked for voltage. No voltage at T or H when checking both to ground. No voltage when checkin g from T-H either. I entered diagnostics and went to step 25 (icemaker fill test, see tech sheet) and checkde for voltage at T-H and now the 120V was present. I tried again a few times in both normal and diagnostics...same result. Also, the icemaker is less than a year old. Customer said he installed it himself. I can see the evidence also. He tore up the plastic cover for the harness and broke the retainer tab on the side of the icemaker. So I do believe he changed it, LOL.   So long story short, why can I harvest only in diagnostic and not in normal ? I'M part number is W10377151. Thanks for any info on this.
  2. The ice maker on this unit is in a chamber inside the fresh food section. It has a test button on the side. When I push it nothing happens. From the wiring diagram I tried to figure out which wires to jump (inside the chamber) to get water to flow at the icemaker. I figured the red and purple. No water flow. So I hard wired directly to the icemaker valve in the back and that sent a flow of water into the icemaker.. 1)was I wrong about about  the red and purple wires? 2) Do I just need a new icemaker or am I missing something
  3. I have recently stumbled across a customer who was having an issue with their ice-maker in the fridge compartment of his GE bottom freezer refrigerator.The original complaint was that it seemed to be leaking and freezing inside the compartment. I checked all of the components and ohmed out the sensor from the main board using the service manual and everything seemed to be testing out correctly. So I figured it was the ice-maker and replaced it. Now the new ice-maker doesn't want to do anything, but even the old ice-maker was producing ice. If you press the test cycle button on the ice-maker it will run a complete cycle with water and everything. Does this mean the compartment isn't cold enough to allow the water valve to send water to the ice-maker? I'm really stumped here and could use any assistance that anyone may have. Thanks.
  4. I had water pouring out of my ice cube maker, so I replaced the water inlet valve.  Nevertheless, water continues to fill the ice maker tray and over flow out the front of the ice dispenser.    Is this a bad sensor?  I would expect it to fail safe, that is, shut the valve off, but that is not the case.  The water is coming out regardless of whether or not the ON/OFF bar is up or down.   What should I do?
  5. Hello, The fridge is not making ice. French door Kitchenaid, model in title. I followed along with this posting http://appliantology.org/topic/43264-kitchenaid-ice-maker-not-filling-with-water-making-ice/ Jumpered T and H..... The arm raised up and down, but no water entered. Jumpered L and V... Heard the humming and watered flowed in....I couldn't see it until it over flowed...then I knew it was flowing in Not sure where to go from here....or what to try next. Thank you for your help....it took me a long time to find your site but it was well worth the effort. Regards, Moe
  6. This is a Frigidaire model FGEB28D7QF0 refrigerator with french doors and a refrigerator section ice maker.  Frost is building up in the back of the icemaker compartment and blocking the fan from turning.  The gaskets of the compartment have already been replaced.  Has anyone come across any other causes for ice building up in there?  
  7. I spent about three hours perusing most of the posts on this french door unit that I could find. I was unable to find a post, or a download, that could assist me in removing the ice maker.    My situation looks like the valve slowly leaked water into the ice maker and caused it to bind up and crack up the tray. There was also water frozen in the bottom of the dispenser drawer, sticking the cubes together.    The top plastic cover with the styrofoam was chewed up slightly, and when I showed it to my customer she exclaimed "that's where all that funny white stuff came from." When I dropped the motor head down and then the ice tray, the thermistor fell down and the wiring was chafed at the rubbery end of thermistor.   There is ice and water dripping down on the back wall directly under the ice maker area.   My question is: How to remove the ice maker? How to remove the auger motor/head? How to best extricate the frozen fill tube or at least defrost it? I watched an outdated ice maker removal video and read numerous posts and Q&A's on the parts site. I also have downloaded all the recent files on this but cannot locate instructions for working on this. Did I miss something somewhere?    Domo to all...

  14. The customer complaint is that there is no heat, when i checked for heat by opening the door prior to the machine running i couldn't feel any heat, i check for 240 volts and i got a reading of 213 VAC. The machine is run on a 240 circuit (not 208). I thought that may be the problem however when i take the drum out and bypass the belt break switch only the inner coil comes on (the bigger of the two) drawing roughly 9 amps. On the schematics he only item seperating L1 from both elements is the control intake thermostat so i have my suspicions. the wierd problem is with the timer in the exact same position i put the drum and door back on, start the dryer and boom no heat what so ever; 4.5 amps (motor). So my main question is, is the lack of necessary voltage the cause of only the inner coil and the dryer not heating with the drum in, if so can someone explain why?! Furthermore i checked for blockages in the vent, blower and disconnected the vent so its not the safety therm. 
  15. Alright y'all this is my first post so go easy on me.   I've got the Samsung RF263TEAESR giving me the fits. The icemaker in the freezer section is not producing ice. I have hit the test button on the maker and it goes through the process but when I hear the water valve kick on I get nothing. I have disconnected the line from the rear so as to get water to squirt out when I tested the icemaker but I am only get a few drops of water coming from the water valve.   My question is will I have to replace the entire water filter assembly that houses all these water lines or is it just a water valve replacement?   Thanks if advance!
  16. This unit was manufactured in 2009.  The other older icemaker service manuals I've seen have different controller operating parameters and different diagnostics.
  17. Been having trouble with water leaking from some part of my icemaker. The water is pooling in the cube tray and freezing, and some is also making it to the floor of the freezing and freezing there. Fortunately, haven't seen any leaking out of the freezer yet.   Whatever the problem, I may have caused it when using a screwdriver to chip out ice from a frozen fill tube. I've done that about 5 or 6 times over the last year or so, and let me say there was no love in my heart when I did it. Probably wasn't the right tool or approach for the job, and I may have damaged something up the line (I assume there's a valve there somewhere, but I have no idea).   Any thoughts would be appreciated!   Thanks and best regards, Joe
  18. Note: I am not currently at home and the following information is from my memory of the diagnostic tests I have performed over the past week. I will not be able to perform any more tests until much later tonight.   KitchenAid Side-by-Side Refrigerator, Model # KSRB25FKSS04 Whirlpool Ice Maker Model # 2198597 IR Receiver Model # 2255114 IR Emitter Model # 2220398   This fridge has the ice bucket on the door and the IR ice level door sensor.   Our original ice maker died about a year ago. I just recently decided to replace it myself, and went ahead and ordered a replacement ice maker unit. I did this before I really knew about all the diagnostics procedures, but at least I can assume the ice maker is now good.   Diagnostics:   IR sensor - I have verified that this is the pre-2002 model. With the door open and the emitter flapper in the open position, the receiver light blinks twice, pauses, and repeats. With the flapper held closed the light stays solid.   For the following tests, I removed the receiver board just to take it out of the equation, and jumped the black wire to the black/white wire on the receiver plug.   Tested voltage between L-N, received 120V.   Tested resistance between L-H (mold heater), received 72 ohms.   Tested resistance between L-M (motor), received a value in the acceptable range of 4400-8800 ohms (will confirm later).   Tested resistance between V-N (external water valve), received ~150 ohms. Should be ~300, but I know the water valve is functioning.   Tested resistance between T-H (thermostat), showed continuity and 0V, indicating the thermostat was closed.   Jumped between T-H, harvest cycle does not start. Thermostat was already closed so that kinda makes sense?   Jumped between L-V, water valve energizes fine.   Jumped between M-N, motor powers fine, and will continue a full rotation with the jumper removed after ~3 seconds and a click sound is heard. I had ice in the mold for this and the fingers couldn't remove it even after ~5 minutes and I saw no sign of the mold heating up. I loosened the ice cubes with hot water and hooked the ice maker back up. The motor completed the harvest cycle and the water valve filled the tray. This morning when I checked on it (~8 hours later) it had not done another harvest cycle and the ice remained in the tray.   Any help is appreciated.     I should also mention that I have kept the original ice maker for comparative diagnostic tests.
  19. I have a customer with a frigidaire flex tray icemaker in the refrigerator. Upon arrival i found a non running refrigerator. Customer pointed out to my there was a wire hanging from the icemaker. It was the sensor that mounts to the bottom of the tray. One wire was out of the sensor and it was burnt slightly on the end. I unplugged the icemaker and the unit started running. So i guess if you have a bad icemaker you loose everything in the frig and freezer. Great work there Electrolux!! So of course the is no easy way to work on this thing so I installed a new icemaker. Next day I got a call back from the customer. Icemaker is fully flexed and stuck in that position. So i installed another icemaker. Yes after 25 years of actually diagnosing appliances I have been reduced to a parts changer. Next icemaker does the same thing. Studied the wiring diagram I found on sears but i have no idea of the theroy of operation to make a deduction. any ideas will be muchly appreciated. thanks
  20. I get no water at the door and no Ice. Changed both valves, defrosted overnight, good water pressure.
  21. bugger not making ice, found fill hose popped off freeze plate, cycle the unit, runs, pumps, has missing tech sheet of course and control unit not a cube tstat-looking for the service book to see if there are test points or diags   thanks
  22. okay I have a repackaged whirlpool direct drive unit labeled a maytag centenial MVWC300VW0. The customer complaint is the unit stops mid cycle. The lid switch is fine I checked that first. I even temporarily bypassed it for testing purposses. The unit would not start agitation or spin. It filled just fine. I turned the temp selector switch W10202616 and the water seemed to adjust in temp as I moved the dial so i don't think thats the issue. I moved the dial to several locations for the spin and none of them kicked on the motor. I did the same thing for agitate and it wouldn't start either I blew into the pressure switch to bypass uncessarily filling the unit with water. So then I traced electrical supply down to the motor and the second I touch the motor connecter it started working. So I thought maybe it was just the motor connector being loose because is was slighlty loose. after that everything worked fine start stop of agitate and spin worked perfectly. So I left the customer with a fully tested and working machine only to get recalled within 24 hours. She ran one succesful load and then the second load failed. I'm checking with you fellow masters to see what route I could take to resolve this. I think it could be a timer issue or a motor issue. I'm leaning more toward timer because the motor never seemed hot or humming upon startup.   Thanks,   Dean    
  23. Frigidaire refrigerator FRS26LF7DS7 has no water entering ice maker. Installed new valve first and later, new ice maker and still no water enters ice maker. Ice maker cycles but no water comes in. Water dispenser side works fine. Filter assembly is okay, too. Any ideas on what to check for next on this model? 
  24. My appliance repair skillz are at the "take out bolts and replace parts" level. Accordingly, when my GE sidebyside aprubtly started storing ice on the freezer floor (which eventually built up and leaked out to be stored as water on the kitchen floor) I went through forums and found advice on parts to replace.. I defrosted it, cleared the frozen drain... Then replaced the icemaker, and when that did nothing, the water valve. The water built up and froze just as quickly; takes about two weeks to clog the drain and create the glacier that flows eventually out the freezer door. I've now defrosted it about 4 or 5 times. The freezer and fridge both seem to maintain temperature... the fan blows. The little vent door moves open and shut. The evap coils don't frost up. I can't tell where this water originates. I've turned off the icemaker completely - no difference. Next I will turn off the water inlet valve so even the door water won't work, but I suspect it's something like the defroster or defrazzinater or whoseewhatiss in the electronic muvvaboard not allowing moisture to escape during the Krebs cycle. So here's the challenge: So far I've got maybe 180 bucks in repair parts into this thing. Considering the symptoms and what I have already replaced... If I am comfortable swapping out parts (yes, i will even solder if necessary) what, in order of ascending cost/likely culpability, are the next  parts to replace? Remember, I've got no idea how to test circuits. If I can do it with a wire and a vicegrips, maybe. Otherwise, I'll just swap the part out. I suspect when the list gets to muvvaboard ($$$ ka-ching) I will take this thing out back and end it's life like they did to the printer in "Office Space". Then i will go on Craigslist and find another fridge for 250 bucks used and end my career as fridge repairman. Any ideas?
  25. Got a call from a client about a problem with icemaker on AMANA SxS fridge. I think this is a fridge made by DAEWOO. Client lives quite far away and I want to go there well prepaired. Complaint is that when he forces a harvest the tray turnes 180 degrees put does not release the ice cubes.I am familiar with regalur AMANA ice makers' regular or modular type but know very little about flextray machines. My logic however says that when it turns the tray 180 degrees some pin on the mold must hit the body while the motor is still turning or the mold must hit a stopper on the body and cause the flexing of the tray to release the cubes. Are there any repair procedures for these machine or is it better to replace the whole unit. Any help appreciated.
