My icemaker stopped producing a few weeks ago.  It still cycles, but no water gets up to the tray.  More recently I get a delay and humming before producing water down on the door spicket and many times it tries but does not succeed in producing water at all!  I have replaced the pure source filter and still have the same problem.  When it does decide to cooperate and produce water the flow does not seem restricted much, if any.  Although I never get flow to the ice tray (for 3 or 4 weeks at least).  I have though about replacing the selonoid, but the part listed on the web sight looks nothing like the part I believe to be the selonoid on my unit??  I checked the flow from my main line and it is fine.  No obstructions.  Maybe it's a short or electrical since it works at times but not at others?  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance.

you never gave model number so this generic answer may not exactly match your model

the injector tube that feeds your icemaker is prolly frozen, remove the plastic water line that leads to it, injector pulls out of back of fridge,check if its frozen, thaw with hot water if necessary

if that was clear its more than likely a valve, post model number so we have somewhere to start looking cause the frigidaires have had a few different issues for different models

ok, so maybe i am a bit blind (dont tell my customers):P saw the model after i posted

check the injector tube at the back of the fridge for ice, also you did notice your fridge has 2 water valves right?  you said the repair clinic one didn't look like yours

but before changing the valve... on the times your fridge doesn't dispence water pay attention to wether the light above the glass comes on or not, cause the micro switch you press with you glass tends to fail over time from water and soda splashing from glasses if light is on and no water its prolly the secondary valve(one on the left in the machine compartment)

Thank you so much for your prompt reply.  Wow!  In awnser to your question...Yes, the light does come on when I try to use the water spicket.  So I guess it may be the valve, huh? 

I am not at home at the moment, but i am fairly sure that where my main h2o line enters the lower right side of the fridge (looking from the rear) there is only one valve and exit line that beelines up to the upper left side of the fridge and enters where the h2o filter is on the inside.  Another line then exits from that same area and goes back down to the lower left side where there it may split to two lines (which seem harder to access).  From there, one I assume goes to the icemaker and the other to the h2o spicket? 

So is that where I should concentrate my efforts, rather than where my main h20 line enters the first valve?  Sorry to be so dim witted :?.  I know this should be easier than I am making it.  Thanks again for all your time and help.

you need to remove that tube connected to the water line that feeds the icemaker and see if its frozen, and there is a second valve on the left side, not just a splitter

Checked the water line entering tne back of icemaker...not frozen.  You are totally right.  There is a dual solenoid/water valve an the left side of the fridge, and a single solenoid on the right side where my main line comes in.  I took them apart and checked for clogs etc....doesn't seem to be any.  Probably going to have to replace some parts.  Not sure what my best bet would be or if there is a way to troubleshoot what needs replacing?  I am in the middle of putting it all back together.  Thanks again for the time and support :).

Sorry. I was confused using the term solenoid.  What an amateur!  I guess it is a dual coil secondary water inlet valve on the left side.  And a single coil primary water inlet valve on the right side.

It's a miracle!  After cleaning the valves and putting things back together she's working like a charm.  Hopefully it will not be short-lived.  Thanks again :)!

congrats but warning too

i dont recomend cleaning valves

one little particle left behind is all it takes to stick a valve open and flood a house

the valve is 40 some odd dollars, whats the insurance deductable on your house insurance for flood?

sorry if that seems tough love but over the years i have developed a knack for knowing when to give these warnings

I appreciate the advice.  Definitely good to know.  The good news is .... no flooded house.  The bad news is ... it was a temporary fix :(.  The icemaker produced one beautiful batch of ice, but now is back to no water filling the tray.  I also filled 3 or 4 glasses of water (with good flow) last night.  But to my dismay this morning ..only humming and no H2O!  Based on the results thus far do you think I should replace the valves.  And if so, should I replace the primary/single coil as well as the secondary dual coil?  Or just start with one or the other to sleuth out the problem?  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated :).
