It sounds like your ice machine is not getting enough water flow.

SOURCE: Ice maker is making hollow ice cubes, some only half frozen

Most ice makers have an adjustment screw to control the cube size. Its usually hidden behind a plastic panel on the front of the ice maker. A quarter turn either way and some trial and error testing should get you pointed in the right direction to your ideal ice cube.

Pull out the whole ice machine part. At the back of the fridge you will see a small rectangle hole with a white plastic part inside the whole. Loosen the pastic part by applying a little pressure with your fingers it should move, it's probably just sticking.

Ice cubes are too thin. Making on time, but no volume due to small cubes. What part will correct this?


Well this thing is made to make ice cubes so if the ice cube are to small thin then you water supply must be restricted because its cold enough to make the ice just the volume of water isn't their .Check the feed system for restrictions .

Frigidaire bottom freezer spills ice when opened and I can't shut the drawer til I fish the ice cubes out.


You might be well served with a general defrost of the unit. But before you do, make sure that the mounting screws on the ice maker are fully in. Then if so, warm the lower surface of the ice maker where cubes are ejected with a hair dryer for a minute or two (medium not high). It could be that extraneous ice is catching the cubes. What does it feel like to the hand?

Hi,
The theory to making ice is temperature, water, and ice mold to function. What are the temperatures inside the freezer currently. It must be below 15 degrees to function and prefer the freezer to be at 0 degrees to product effectively. Are you ice cubes solid or hollow? If hollow you can jam the ice inside the ice maker causing slow production. Rare to have a water valve problem this young be is possible. I would look at temperatures first than cycle time to determine the next step. In a perfect world, your unit should drop ice every hour to and hour and a half.
Good Luck

Frigidaire gallery side by side is not making ice. When it does on occasion make ice the cubes get stuck in the ice maker before dropping into the holding box


It sounds like you need to adjust the size of the ice cubes.

If they stick together in a long row, to much water, and then of course if they are too small that is also a problem. All you have to do is remove the outer cover of the icemaker and look for the set screw. It will stand out from the others. and be marked with a Plus and a Minus sign. Whichever you are having the problem with, adjust accordingly. I would try 1/4 turn increments. See how that works after One day and then re-adjust as needed.
Hope this helps you out.

Side by side refrigerator


The ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice

 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
 Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
 New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
 Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
 Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?
This can decrease water pressure

OR
The water dispenser will not operate properly

 Freezer door closed completely? Close the door firmly. If it
does not close completely, see “The doors will not close
completely.”
 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Is the water pressure at least 30 psi? The water pressure to
the home determines the flow from the dispenser. See “Water
Supply Requirements.”
 Kink in the home water source line? Straighten the water
source line.
 New installation? Flush and fill the water system.
 Water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter may be
clogged or incorrectly installed.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?

Whirlpool gd5shaxkqoo side by side ice maker


Hi. It takes approximatly 3 days to fill the ice container. If it is filling it half way, it should fill it all the way. There is no reason for it to stop making ice unless a cube gets stuck occasionally. Try replacing the water filter. If you are using reverse osmosis to filter your refrigerator water then that is your problem. Refrigerator ice makers don't work well with most reverse osmosis systems. Good luck, Mack
