Sometimes once they are installed the water pressure has a hard time soaking the inside of the filter. Just poke a small screwdriver in one of the holes and the panel will pop out. The dispenser control board governs most of the functions of the dispenser system. Either the ice maker or the door dispenser. My question is do I have to cut the existing fixed thermostat out and splice or can I leave it in line? They put in a back panel to fix problem.
Shame on Frigidaire, they are driving business and jobs away from America buy not providing the quality and especially the service that we should expect from and American company. You may have to turn it down to prevent the reservoir from freezing. However, the fridge has been a nightmare. This refrigerator is equipped with an infrared light beam to detect the level of ice in the ice bucket. It is more likely that a single part has failed.
This includes the water filter and cartridge. If you can, try turning the ice auger by hand dump all the ice out first. You will probably have to buy both valves, but want to do this anyway as the second valve will fail soon. Do you have ice build up on the lower interior freezer section? A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow. In addition, ensure that the freezer is kept at the proper temperature. Everything works well except the water line freezes up. But nevertheless, she was impressed.
We replaced the water filter and now it is making the hammering noise from the water dispenser and low flow water. They will not stand behind their product. You can check the continuity of the switch with a multi-meter. Hook up the water line again and replace the kick plate. Try moving the ice maker arm to the top full level before it fills up completely. Is the water supposed to go into the ice maker tray immediately after the ice maker assembly is replaced? If it freezes, grab the tip of the line with a plyers and pull to open it up, then push the line back in so just the tip is sticking out for the next time.
I went back and pushed the weed wacker string into the water tube dispenser to see how far it would go in and it went in about a foot. It's called IceSurrender Frozen Waterline Tool. . I heated up a small cup of water, near boiling in the microwave a kettle would work. Just want to fix it once before I buy the kit. Is line frozen in the door, and if so, how to thaw that line. I have tried two different water filters and I get the same issue.
He stated it would take a week to get the part. I would unscrew the filter cover and see if it's frozen in there. It does not happen when I hear the ice filling. After several more calls and their saying they just couldn't find the order, they then one day said they had gone ahead and sent the merchandise. Others have indicated the typical spot of freezing is in the door just below the ice shoot.
Watch the vid and be done with this issue Thank you for providing the link however, don't understand how installing plastic length of trimmer line aided in restoring water flow. Put it in and that night it froze up again! At least you know the quality is suspect and you don't feel so bad when you have to chuck it after a few years. He ended up putting a string and taping it up on the back of the refrigerator to hold up a water line. He also seemed to be a replacer of parts with no basic understanding of refrigeration. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
Your defrost cycles run about every 12 hours. Before all this, I used to use a blow dryer on it and keep a weed eater line up in it. We kept our old fridge 10 years old in the garage and have never had a problem. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. I called Webster Friday, December 21, 2018 to follow-up with him and it went into his voicemail inbox. Just started happening, I used to thaw out with hair dryer, but now that it keeps happening, not sure what to do??? Also, ice makers have a relatively short lifespan and so it might not be worth fixing.
