Thanks Durham. I had a call this morning and the customer said his fridge is making lots of racket and neither ice maker making ice. Thought I would get an idea from the service manual on where to start as I have'nt seen one of these.

Have fun! These things are just coming out of warranty so we will be seeing lots of them. I haven't had the pleasure yet but I've been preparing for them. They, like all of the newer appliances, rely heavily on diagnostic mode and this model has extensive diagnostics.

Based on what the customer is saying about hearing a noise, I would check water valve and sealed system failure (since it's a Frigidaire) . The fresh food ice maker has it's own evap so I would not expect a defrost problem unless evap in freezer and Ice room are frosted over suggesting a board problem.

From what I can tell, your model has the fresh food icemaker with the finger evap that lowers into the mold instead of the flex tray version. I hope I'm wrong though because I have decided to refuse work on the finger evap style if the repair entailed diagnosing and disassembling that product of engineering stupidity. Let's hope that since both your icemakers are affected, the problem entails something common to both, ie valve, sealed system, or board and nothing that requires extensive, direct examination of the fresh food icemaker.

Good luck... your input regarding this thing would be enormously valuable

Samurai, the above link does not work.  Says " An internal error occurred. Please contact an administrator".

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Sorry, did search and found some.  Just an FYI, link is inop.  Thanks.

I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.

Or, on the other hand.....

Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.

So.....

To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:

1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.

Now, let's have some fun!

ZIG:
Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.

N.M.:
It always seems impossible until it's done.

Thanks for the heads up.  I think it was a copy/paste error.
