Ice maker quit. Replaced fill valves. Ice maker was frozen. Thawed, but still no ice. How do you remove ice maker?
Answer Hello H. Remove the ice bucke assembly from the freezer. You will need to remove the screws securing the ice maker inside the unit. Then you will pull out the ice maker and unplug the wires going from the ice maker to the unit. Hope this helps.
Why is there white plastic pieces in my ice some are large pieces?
Answer Hello Debbie. You will need to check and see if the plastic is coming from the icemaker 241642501 or from the dispenser bucket. If it is coming from the icemaker, you will need to replace the icemaker in the unit. If it is coming from the bucket, you will need to check and see what is broken on the bucket assembly. Hope this helps.

THERE ARE 2 ADULTS THAT LIVE HERE. AND @ EVERY 2 WEEKS WE RUN OUT OF ICE. IT IS LIKE THE ICE MAKER MAKES ENOUGH ICE FOR A FEW WEEKS AND THEN DOES NOT MAKE AS MUCH. THAT IS WHEN HAVE TO GO BUY A BAG OF ICE TO SEE US THROUGH. THE ICE MAKER HAS ALREADY BEEN REPLACED ONCE. THIS REFRIG.IS 1 YEAR OLD AS OF 10/2011. CAN YOU MAKE SOME SUGGESTIONS?
Answer Hi Star. If you have not changed the water filter every 6-mos. then this will greatly affect the amount of ice or amt. of dispenser water. Water filter part # ULTRAWF. Is the ice maker level ? Level the unit front to back and side to side. Make sure the water line at the back is not kinked. Get in the habit of watching the ice bin and making sure it does not overflow. If so , just turn it off and use half of the bin?ice. Then turn it back on. If not then a cube will get over the top and create a issue. If there is a stuck cube in the ejector blades it will take a few cycles to self clear itself. Shut the arm off and reach in and dislodge the cube. All these suggestions need checked first. Do you have a volt /ohm meter so we can proceed further ? If not it is part # TJMA-DM1. Thank You.
Is the ice maker motor included in the ice maker kit part 241642501? The ice maker froze up and would not empty the ice. After thawing it out, now it will not fill up with water. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Carolyn! The replacement icemaker that is used on your model FRS26R4CWB should be 5304458371. Yes, the motor is included in both icemaker parts. If the icemaker is calling for water and the icemaker is not filling with the water you would then need to replace the inlet valve 242252702. Thanks.
