recently my Frigidaire top / bottom ice maker stopped making ice, I ran the cycle test by raising the fins in the maker and then hand turned the gear on the front. While the ice maker stated working again, and the ice is the correct size.. it takes literally days to make a half tray of ice. I also checked the tube from the water valve to inside the freezer and is seems not blocked. I am getting plenty of water flow when I take the water line off the water valve.
So my question is: if the ice maker is working but making ice hyper-slowly, would it be a clogged or failing water valve. Thanks for any help
There is the potential for one of 2 issues. The first would be that the temp in the freezer is not getting cold enough to allow the icemaker to cycle properly. The other issue would be a faulty thermostat on the icemaker itself which must reach a steady temperature of 10 degrees and that would cause a slow ice production. If the thermostat is not closing properly this would be the effect. This would require a new icemaker.
