Frigidaire Refrigerator Model #FRS26ZGEW3

4 posts in this topic

My Frigidarie is not making ice.  The water inlet tube is clear (no frozen ice there).  I have a dual outlet valve on the back of the fridge but am not sure if it is the culprit or if I have a problem with the ice maker itself. 

I went to an appliance parts store today and the man told me there are two valves on the back (so which one could be bad).  I didn't see two valves on the back; just one.  With a little guidance, I may be able to do a continuity test on the valve solenoid and the ice maker.

I have a water dispenser on the door which works fine!

 Any ideas on how to diagnose this problem?:yikes:

The dual valve feeds both, the ice maker and the water disp.. Either the ice maker is not giving power to the valve or the ice maker side of the dual valve has gone out.  You would probably start by replacing the fill valve.

Thanks for the advice.  I'll replace the fill valve first.
