How do I fix the icemaker, it is not producing ice.
Answer Hello Jared. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Our Frigidaire refrigerator has an ice maker but no water dispenser. The ice maker has started making ice that appears dirty. The ice has an ash-like film on the surface and through the ice. I changed the ULTRAWF filter 2 days ago, but I'm not sure if the dirty ice began then or if it was happening shortly before I changed the filter. What would cause this?
Answer Gary, If you didn't flush the new filter before you installed it, there could be residual charcoal powder in the filter which will appear in the cubes. If that's the case, the debris in the cubes should subside in a day or two. The other possibility is the ice maker mold has a build up of calcium, hard water, etc. which may need to be cleaned away, or the lining in the mold has started to deteriorate and is flaking off into the cubes. You'll need to remove the ice maker or use a mirror to inspect the mold, when it's empty.

Does the water filter control water to the ice maker. No water to ice maker now. Is the filter preventing flow to ice maker but not the ice water from door?
Answer Hello Michael. No, if the water works in the door, it is not the filter. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Does the ice water inlet valve have any effect on the ice lever arm that goes in the ice container?
Answer Hello Saw Man. No, the arm turns on and off the icemaker. The water valve does not affect the arm.
