    Default Ice dispenser

    Model Number: FRS6R5ESBL
    Brand: Frigidaire

    Ok, so my ice maker is making ice fine, however, when you depress the dispenser it does not put out. I don't hear any click or anything. The only noise whatsoever is the flapper which goes up and seems to go down pretty slow, this could be an older issue or something normal though because I have never paid attention to how long it stayed open prior to this. Does any one know the steps I would take to troubleshoot this. Also, if part of the trouble shooting is taking the dispenser out of the door then what do I have to do after I take the three screws out of the bottom, I would think pry but I don't want to incur the cost of a new front panel as well as what ever else I need to buy.

    Hi,

    There should be 1 more letter or number after the "L" at the end of your model#, here's the results I get:

    FRS6R5ESB0 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESB2 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESB4 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESB5 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESB6 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESB7 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESB8 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESB9 FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESBA FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESBB FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESBC FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERATOR
    FRS6R5ESBD FRIGIDAIRE/REFRIGERTOR

    You may have a broken actuator on that ice dispenser lever causing the ice door to open, but the switch not to activate. Seen that happen many times on this model.

    Once you post the complete model# I can post the parts diagram so you can look at it to see if its broken.

    well I looked at the model number again and didn't miss anything. However, there is another model number for the ice maker it is JSI-26, those are the only two model numbers I saw.
    Anyhow, I got the dispenser off the fridge, and noticed that the plastic nub that is supposed to "activate" the ice dispenser was broken, not all the way off but it didn't touch the switch, so for now I am going to see temporarily if epoxy will do, but I still want to order the part, and also I would like to order another front panel as I had to epoxy the bottom plastic piece as well.

    The model# tag is located inside your refrigerator section on the uppers walls or ceiling.

    I would like to know if your JSI-26 icemaker "moans" when the motor is turning the blades. Mine does, it lasts a seemingly long time since the blades move so slowly.
