Frigedair Gallery Type not Making Ice
Ice Maker: JBND-26
The back of the unit was rusting which apparently is a common problem. So I decided to follow a you tube video and attempt to fix it.
- Ordered Electrolux 5303918737 which is the replacement gasket kit
- Electrolux 5304510029 Prepack 4 Air Hand 8784 is what came in. Appears to be a new/improved cover assembly for the evaporator fan, condenser and heater assembly. With a much-improved gasket at the back of the cover. attached is an image of the old and new cover assembly prior to transferring everything over.
Thus, I fully replaced the old plastic cover and metal cover with this new integrated assembly. To do so I transferred the evaporator fan, auger motor and solenoid coil, and the little plastic prong thing to the new “cover”.
Everything went fine fairly easy to do.
Ice-Maker worked for about 2 days.
Now it is not making any ice. Doesn’t fill the tray with water. Water can flow to the tray I've manually done so using code/function 55.
I’ve run through all of the test codes via the front display: 63, 58, 57, 55, 52. All of which work fine and return the expected results. I further tested 28, 46,2, 8, 10, 11, 12, 15, 20, 22, 26, 29, 30, 33, 34, 39, 45. All of which seem to produce the correct result.
When I run code 55, water fills the ice tray. After about 1-2 hours, the ice tray dumps, however the water is not frozen and the ice try is not refilled with water. If left in the ice-bucket the water will freeze along the bottom.
I am out of ideas on how to trouble shoot and correct the issue. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
thank you in advance
