I am having trouble with the water flow into the icemaker. It worked for a while. I have misplaced the instructions on how to turn the screw for the water flow and for how long it should flow. I do that and have to turn it back off to stop the water flow and then no water comes back when that dumps.
Answer Hi Cps. The screw corresponds to small hole in the front of the module. It has a brass metal tab with a hole punched out in the middle. The factory sets the screw adjustment so the hole is in the middle. This gives the proper 7 seconds of water fill = 113-151 cc, 4-5 0z. Rotate the side screw 180° counterclockwise puts the "hole" to the Left outer edge. I remember it as "left -let's in"... Then turning the screw clockwise 180° allows the hole to go to the rt. side as "Rt. - restricts". Any further in either direction will over flow or break the internal module parts. I have always adjusted to the rt. so the cubes are a little smaller so they come out of the chute easier and not clump up. Thank You.
How do you turn icemaker on or off? We don't understand wording on cover. Thanks
Answer Hello Wanda. You will lift the arm on the icemaker 5303918277 to turn it off and push the arm down to turn it on.
Overflow leaking order water inlet valve, still leaking in the ice tray with the cubes, overflows a little bit then stops. Now I order the ice maker # 5303918277 as instructed by your parts department. Can you please forward me instructions as to how to install the ice maker? I would appreciate it. Thank you for your help in advance.
Answer Hi Nannette. Ice maker part #5303918277 comes with instructions. Replacement Ice maker - By Frigidaire. Fits most Frigidaire, Gibson, White Westinghouse and Kelvinator refrigerator models. Cord has four round female connectors, comes with an adapter that will convert it to three round female and one round male connectors. This is a replacement part only and is not used for brand new installations. Remove power. Remove the ice bin. Remove the lower front screw mount. Loosen the 2- top screws. ( Phillips or 1/4" screws). Lift the ice maker off the mounts. Then disconnect the electrical connector. Match the # of terminals compared from the original ice maker. Use the adapter cord if needed. Then reverse installation. Before tightening the mount screws completely, use a level and level the ice maker so cubes will be filled level. Then make sure the bail arm is down. Once the ice maker thermostat is satisfied below 12-14°, then it will allow water valve to fill the ice maker. Thank You.
Can I use a hotpoint ice maker in this frig.
Answer Jean, you will need to use a Frigidaire kit for your unit to guarantee the parts fit and there are no issues. For an add on icemaker kit you will need to use part number IM115. However, you have already installed this kit and need a replacement icemaker only you will need to use part number 5303918277. Thanks!
