Hello all. I'm honored to be a part of this venerable forum. So let me waste no ones time and get to the point.

My fridge has stopped delivering water. It was gradual and occured over the course of several days.

Water line is not clogged. Pressure is fine. I've been informed, clerk at the appliance parts warehouse(who has been right on several issues in the past) that the culpret is probably the dual water valve(218832401). The primary valve is upstream and could be the source of the problem as well(218859701).

My question is: How do isolate the problem? How do I test the valves?

 

Thanks.

Ray

It would seem to be a bad Primary Water Valve, unless both sides of the Dual Water Valve went bad at the same time.

If you can disconnect the water line ouput of the Primary Water Valve, and have someone try the Water Dispenser to see if any water flows.

Thanks for the input. I tried the primary valve with the downstream line connected and no water. Looks like the primary could be the culprit unless there's another variable I'm unaware of.

Thank you.

next, check the voltage at the Primary Water Valve while someone dispenses water.

Without the whole model number cannot see what all is in your unit, do you have a filter in yours?  If so could be clogged up...could be a bad valve, frozen water line etc...

Hi Pegi. Good question. I haven't been able to identify the suffix on my model. The tag on the inside gives me the basic FRS22ZGG but nothing else. I've looked for some other identifier but no luck.

I did have luck with my Primary water valve. I replaced it with relative ease and Viola!..........Ice in the ben...well not yet but at least water in the tray and water in the door.

Now, the door ice switch allows a choice of cubes or crushed. I can only get crushed. Its that a switch issue or a mechanical ice crusher issue?

Get the complete model number off of the model/serial tag in the food compartment, not the sticker on the door....if getting crushed only see if the metal rod on the bottom of the ice bin has the far end inside of the stirrup at the rear of the freezer so the coil can pull it up for cubed....if it is inside of the stirrup see if the stirrup is stuck down?  See if the coil is working by pushing in on the door/light switch and selecting cubed, see if the coil pulls the stirrup up or not, if not could be a bad coil or no power to the coil....start with this....

the friggy's have a problem with the coil freezing up allowing only crushed ice

remove coil, thaw and dry it out well, it should work normally after

they will freeze up if you energise the coil for too long or too often in a short period of time, the coil heats up enough to melt any frost on the plunger, then once the coil cools the melt turns to ice, and she is jammed

dont use the dispensor to eject large amounts of ice at once  i.e ice buckets or coolers, just remove the dispensor bucket and dump ice out

i run around all the time thawing those darn coils

Thanks Toast. My Ice bucket has been out of my Freezer and stowed elsewhere to accomodate the bags of ice we've been using. So the coil has been at room temp for a month. I looked at the mechanism that actuates the coiled lever and it works fine. When I load the ice bucket full of ice and then hit the switch to dispense cubes, it still comes out crushed!!!!
I'll figure it.

Thanks again.

Ray

Remove the ice hopper. Is the solenoid plunger up or down. Look at the small square plastic ring..  should be down...... button could have gotten pushed with the hopper removed and the plunger sticks in the up postion..... hopper lever not geting activated ( lever not in ring)   Reach up and pull down, plunger should pull free. OR it is frozen in the up postion, try BurtToast's  suggestion and remove auger moter assy..................keep us posted.....

If the hopper lever is being operated properly , then I would be looking at the gears that do the grinding.  Ice (I presume) is coming out so the shaft is turning , but maybe not the crushing assembly.

Still need full model number to check the wire diagram....... Is the ice hopper lever IN the plunger ring?  If you push the cubed button, do you hear the solenoid operate?  The plunger should be up for cubed....The plunger should be down for crushed ice .... The lever on the hopper lifts a plate on the grinding teeth,  if the plate cannot be lifted all you get is crushed ice....... still need the full model number (possibe conflict with the micro-switches)

Ok..........FRS22ZGGB3 is the proper model #

The solenoid works. I've tested it. And I see the flap or lever you mentioned that should kick out when "Cubed" ice is selected.
I have a little more homework to do.
Thanks for every ones helpl
