Poor ice maker performance in a Frigidaire refrigeratorBrand: Frigidaire
A customer called us with a complaint about poor ice maker performance in a Frigidaire refrigerator. Yes, this is a common issue that can be caused by a variety of factors.
Our technician conducted a diagnosis. The ice maker is working, but the ice cubes are hollow inside and look like shells in Frigidaire Refrigerator. Sometimes there are also issues with the water dispenser: either the water is flowing very slowly, or it stops after a few seconds. The problem is due to a restriction. The ice maker fills water not by volume but by time (about 6 seconds for this refrigerator model). If there is a restriction in water pressure, less water is filled in the set time. Water problem may be due to low pressure, old filter, faulty housing, or ice maker water valve.
- If it’s an issue with the valves or filter housing, replacing them can solve the problem.
- Replace old filters regularly to remove impurities from water.
- If the water pressure is too low, contact a plumber to replace the water supply line or valve.
However, sometimes, as in this case, you can adjust the timing on the ice maker using the adjustment bolt to increase the water fill time.
