My Side by Side has stopped makeing ice...
« on: May 12, 2009, 07:17:25 AM »
Well, my ice maker has stopped making ice so I first thought the inlet of water must be frozen.  So I emptied the Refrigerator and let it just sit for about 10 hours and then started it back up.  Still No ice..

Also noticed that the heating coil under the ice maker is hot and always on... not sure if itís supposed to be...

So now I am not getting any water into the trays and the heating coil is always on....
But I can get water with good pressure through the Cold Water Thing from the front.  So I donít think itís the water pump unless there is a separate one for the Ice maker...

I did take the ice maker out to inspect it and did not notice anything broken.  I wanted to check the solenoid but could not locate it...

Any ideas???

Model FRS26ZNH

Replace the icemaker cuber.
The heater should cycle on and off with the harvest cycle.
