Frigidaire frig ice maker problems of all kinds
« on: January 11, 2017, 04:05:48 PM »

I bought used frig which was supposed to be working. Right off the bat, was only getting 4-5 hollow ice cubes. I called the seller who said it was working when he took
it out, had bought new water filter but bought new kitchen before replacing, that after he changed out the filter put in a water filter. I took out the filter and replaced making sure it was inserted right. My source water is fine. Replaced the inlet water valve first which changed nothing. I then replaced the other valve that diverts water to and back from the filter. The first time, I got a full dump of ice but when the cycle completed, water came out the door too when the tray filled. This did not happen before I changed this valve. I put the old valve back on and was running water through the door as I read some times, there is air in the lines. After the 3 or 4th glass, water starts dripping out of the bottom of the frig as the bottom of the frig is full of water under the bottom tray. Is there a way to just block off or by=pass the water going from the valve to the door?

Sorry for the late replay. Did you find a solution?
Hollow ice cubes are a sure sign of the ice maker not getting enough water.
The ice maker fills on time. So if just a little water was put in the try instead of filling the tray up with water the ice will creep up the side of the tray as it freezes forming a hollow cube. Would be helpful to know the model number of your refrigerator.
