Frigidaire Refrigerator Model FRS6R5ESBC Side by Side makes to much ice. It stops but not until it overflows the bucket. This happenend with a previous model of same design in our previous house so we presume it is a manufacuring issue. Finally trying to solve the problem. The arm appears fine and other wise the ice maker works fine. We bought both new. This one is now about 2 years old. Nice to know you have lots of ice but some gets wasted falling off the bucket when dispensing.

I have bought a Kenmore Side by Side Coldspot Ultra Fresh refrigerator model number 59507990. It has a filter opening in the bottom grill but it did not come with a filter.

We have a Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator (GLRS64ZEB6). The icemaker stopped working last year and my husband replaced the entire "ice making" piece (I'm sure there's a name for it, but I mean just the part the makes/dumps the ice, the bottom bucket and delivery system still work). Again, the icemaker has simply stopped making ice. My husband reports that he's checked the water supply line and it looks fine. I'd just buy another one, but we've only had this fridge for 4 years now and th

Ge fridge model GSH22SGPC ss - Our fridge has been shutting off intermittently. Works fine for a couple days then decides to turn off but turns back on after we unplug then plug it back in. Other times the display at the top inside of the fridge side where you set how cold you want each side is off. Once you push one of the buttons it comes back on. Funny thing is that when that display is off the fridge is still on and working. Please help.

I have a Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator, model gc1shaxmb00. Recently, a clicking noise started from the back of the fridge. The clicks would last for a minute or two, then stop. This would happen 3 or 4 times a day. The fridge is working just fine, except for one thing. When the clicking occurs, the water dispenser sputters when dispensing. If either door is opened, the clicking stops and the water dispenses normally. This has been going on for over a week and now the clicking is

Frigidaire GS26HSZCC7 Woke up this morning and found water leaking from my Frigidaire GS26HSZCC7 side by side. Open freezer and found everything melting. So after it turned on a started to get cold again, within minutes it was down to 26. Went home at lunch to clean up the mess inside and it stopped working again. I did not hear the blower working. It happened one other time many months ago andt started cooling again and has been fine until today.


It sounds like it could be the defrost timer/board hanging up in defrost periodically. this refrigerator has an adaptive defrost control board that acts like a defrost timer. it keeps track of how long it takes the freezer to defrost ...

We have a Roper side by side, it is only 4 yrs old. Frig side quit cooling, freezer was fine. We took everything out and saw ice build up in freezer behind a panel. We defrosted and placed everything back in, one week later it has did it again. It is iceing up and the freezer works but frig side quits blowing air. How do we determine what's causing this? We have been told element in defrost, or a timer, or a heater blower. How do we know? How do we check?

I have the Kenmore Trio refridgerator model 59675502400. The freezer works fine but the top fridge part does not. We heard a knocking like noise from the fridge the night before it stopped cooling.

This fridge is awful but I can't afford to buy a new one.

Fridge worked perfect for 3yrs, one day i took everything out of the fridge side (left freezer door closed) to clean it, left the fridge door open for about 30 minutes as i cleaned the shelves, cripser etc. Next day the fridge side stopped cooling but the freezer side was normal temp and making ice. Unplugged the unit for one day, plugged it back in and it worked perfect for 2 weeks, after that both sides (fridge and freezer) stopped working.

I have a ed5fhgxkq00 side by side Whirlpool refridgerator that stopped cooling. It worked fine up until last night when we noticed that the ice was melting. Now it gets a little cool but not cool enough. It was very dusty underneath it so we took and vaccumed it all out the compressor is running but it just doesn't get cold enough in either the freezer or the refridgerator section.


If the compressor has a fan next to it, be sure it is running. if the relay is clicking every few minutes it may need to be replced. contact local parts distributor. ... Whirlpool ED2FHSS Side by Side Refrigerator

My fridge stopped cooling about a year ago. Freezer worked fine. It was a sunday and I didn't want to extra so I decided to wait until Monday. About 5 hours after the problem began, it fixed itself. It's doing it again but I'm not going to be so quick to phone for repair man. If anyone know what's causing this (I think it's ice buildup) let me know. Would love to comare notes or save someone a bundle

I have a maytag side by side. Ice maker was working fine then just stopped producing ice. The white hose....(looks like little vents thru it) is it suppose to connect to something? I moved it around and not sure if I broke it away from something. Right now it just hangs thru a white bracket but I see no water. Or where the water is suppose to go. I mean I see where the ice is made but don't know how exaclty the water gets to where? I looked in back of refridge and nothing seems to be kinked.

Ice maker has stopped making ice. It appears no water is getting to the ice tray. There's no sound (click) when I flip the on/off switch (but I don't know if there's supposed to be any sound). It worked fine 'til a few days ago and then just stopped. There's plenty of water to the water dispenser in the door. One question I have is whether any repairs necessary can be done from the front. It's a built-in and pulling it out would be very difficult. Model is GE Monogram ZISS420xxxx. Not sur
