In Topic: Frigidaire french door finger style icemaker

13 February 2014 - 05:06 PM

I think there was a update kit installed but it was a board and im not sure what else. Don't recall a heater. This is a customers fridge and the only one I have had the pleasure to work on. I think I will call techline back and see if they can get me the part number for that coil because all I can find is the whole evaporator assy and I don't know about anyone else but im not a fan of trying to braze inside a fridge/freezer compartment anyway. The other issue is the customer isn't planning on paying anything since they say it has been a piece of shit since day one even though it is out of warranty. Days like this are when it would be nice to just be a service company and not a servicing dealer. Its never an appliance they picked out when there is a issue, it is always the appliance we sold them. ughhhh

Possibly plugged screen in fill valve on the cold side. On warm wash it fills with hot water but rinse it usually only fills thru the cold side and you wont get any water. Select cold wash and see if you get any water to fill.

I have done that numerous times without any issues. I doubt it's recommended but I don't know what else a guy can do.

Ugh, one of those with the in door ice.  I really have't had much to do with those either. I thought it was one of the regular ones with the little freezer compartment in the fresh food. I can't help you much with this one.

If there is a problem with the icemaker, that is why it is too cold in the fresh food. The unit tries to make the little icemaker compartment colder to make more ice. If you turn the icemaker off it will probably start cooling in the fridge properly. Could be a frozen fill tube, bad icemaker or just a cube jammed in the fingers. The icemaker pulls out pretty easy. Take the ice bucket out and there is a plastic cover over the wiring that is kind of a pain to remove. It has a slot you stick a screwdriver in and release a tab similar to the plastic evap fan grill on the maytag/amana/wpl bottom freezer. Then on the left side of the icemaker next to the wall there is a tab you release and pull the whole icemaker assy towards you, unplug the wire connector and take the icemaker/fan assy right out. I will try to find and post a tech sheet/repair manual if someone doesn't beat me to it. This is a bottom freezer french door with dispenser right?
