Frigidaire Icemaker

5 posts in this topic

:( Hi,    I had this problem on and off for a while.  The icemaker would stop working and then indiscriminately start back.  After it stopped working for an extended  period of time.  The first thing we replaced was self piercing  water valve.  At the same time we put a new copper line on.   Well viola,  we began to get ice.  After that we had a  bunch of  ice.  My son turned the icemaker off.  And you    know what happened then.   No more ice.      So I've been reading different postings and decided to  switch the plugs in the water inlet valve.  I plugged the water into the ice , and   vice versa.   Well,   I pushed the water dispenser and got no water in the ice tray or from the dispenser.    But  while I looking up what that  meant,   My water dispenser started spitting out water by itself. 

What's your take on that?   It's 97 degrees and we have no ice.    Helllllllp!!!!!!

have also seen this type of failure occur when a diode in the harness opened- harness connects the primary inlet valve to the secondary valve. remove the rear cover of your fridge and see if it has a 2 coil valve on each side of the fridge cabinet- if so,the 2 are joined via a harness that contains diodes.  replacement diode kit #5318653301
