Frigidaire side by side refrigerator not making ice. Model# PLH67EESB4

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
July 24th, 2013

1. The water supply line does not seem to be clogged because I am getting water through the water dispenser.
2. The filter cartridge is a brand new one.
3. When I press the ice dispenser lever for ice, I hear the metal gear inside turning to "throw' the ice out. 4. However, the green coloured inlet line that leads from the bottom to the upper back of the fridge dos not seem to have water in it.
5. The ice maker signal arm should be in the down position.
6. The freezer is currently set to -4 F
7. As for electrical connections; I'm unsure as to how to proceed as I am not too savvy in those areas. However, given instruction, I am more than willing to try.
8. My guess is that since water is not getting to that green line - no ice! Can anyone please help? Thank you very kindly.

The Ice Maker is designed to produce ice automatically. The length of time between harvest cycles will vary, depending on load conditions, door openings, ambient temperature and freezer temperature and water temperature. These factors must be taken into consideration when checking the ice production rate. With a temperature of…. -2°F to +5°F …..in the freezer, the rate of harvest will be 40 to 96 cubes per 24 hour period.
The thermostat is a single-pole, single throw (SPST), bimetallic, disk-type, thermal switch. It automatically starts the harvest cycle when the ice is frozen. The thermostat closes at a temperature of…. 9°F ± 2°….. It is wired in series with the mold heater, the thermostat acts as a safety device against overheating in the event of mechanical failure. A thermal mastic bond is provided where the thermostat is mounted against the mold. A gasket prevents water from leaking into the support housing.

You would need to drop the temperature to get good operation of the icemaker.

The temp n freezer is 20 degrees does that mean it isn't cold enough to make the ice maker to work. Should I put temp lower and see if it works?????

thermostat built into the icemaker. It will induce the harvest cycle when cold enough.

Just replace ice maker and water inlet valve on a frigidaire refrig. When I hooked up it didn't wok until I turned the small gear to go manually . It worked but when I checked it 2 days later the ice in the maker was frozen solid and bottom of ice maker was frozen . Seems the tray's heater is not working or freezer is to cold ?????? Any ideas

Thank you for your question. I’m sorry you’re having this problem with the icemaker. Unfortunately, the model listed is not showing to be a valid model. However, here is some information for a very common Frigidaire icemaker. A good check for the icemaker is to cycle it manually and then watch to see if it fills with water at the end of the cycle. To cycle this icemaker, pull the front cover off and you will see a large and small gear (see image). Turn the small gear counterclockwise approx. 1/4 turn and the icemaker should start (see image). Toward the end of the cycle it should fill with water. If it cycles but does not fill and you can hear a humming sound, it means the water valve is being energized. In this case, the valve will probably need to be replaced.

If it cycles and fills, it will indicate that either the icemaker thermostat has failed or the temperature in the freezer is not cold enough (below 12 degrees) to cycle the icemaker. To check the temperature, place a thermometer between some packages. Air temp is

not

a good check. If it's not cold enough, usually adjust the control to a colder setting will resolve this. If the temperature is ok, I recommend replacing the icemaker. It's more economical then replacing parts. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance reply to this thread and please recheck to verify the model number and I will be glad to assist you further.
