SOURCE: Ice maker

Smitty, if this is a GSS20, General Electric model you have an electronic model ice-maker. There is no water adjustment screw. Here's how the fill works; when the harvest is finished the icemaker will enter the fill cycle. The amount of water entering the mold is controlled by temperature. Before any water enters the mold has to be at least 35.6 degrees. Water entering the mold will cause the mold temperature to change, effecting the resistance of a thermistor. The first fill activates the water valve for 5 seconds. The thermistor checks the temp of the mold. If the temperature of the mold exceeds 39 degrees the icemaker will end the fill cycle and enter the freeze cycle. If the temp of the mold is still below 39 degrees, the control will assume that an insufficient amount of water entered the mold, and energize the water valve for another 2.5 seconds. Now it will check the temp again. If the mold is still below 39 degrees a third fill of 2.5 seconds will occur. You could have a thermistor that's out of spec. Usually on this model, the power LED on the icemaker will flash 1/2 second on and 1/2 second off if the thermistor is open or shorted. You could have a water valve that is not seating properly and allowing more water to enter the ice-maker. You can run a cycle on this ice maker by turning it off, then on again and pushing the feeler arm in 3 times within 15 seconds. Watch how the fill works. Anyway, outside of the excellent information posted by 24 seven, This will give you an idea of how the icemaker works. Catriver.

SOURCE: Our GE Profile refrigerator is intermittently

HI. Just so you know, Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.

If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.

Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.

The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.

Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.

This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

SOURCE: GE Profile side by side...water collects under the

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

SOURCE: water dispenser does not work

At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

GE Water Dispenser not working

Sounds like the water tank in the fridge section froze and split open causing a leak. Plus, the water feed line to the dispenser has frozen where it runs up through the freezer door- guessing your trimmer line only goes about 5" into the tube?
There is a water line heater kit that GE makes : Refrigerator Heating Element WR49X10173 .
Then, buy two quick disconnects 5/16" and about 10 feet of 5/16" plastic tubing- use the tubing and disconnects to replace the cracked water tank and you should be good to go... Refrigerator Water Line 5210JA3004K

Won't make ice

It probably still MAKES ice, it just doesn't dispense it. The ice drawer may be blocked. Remove the ice drawer, empty it, rinse it through with luke warm water - including all non electrical moving parts, dry thoroughly, replace, give the machine time to replenish the ice, should solve your problem. Assuming it is just that it is only that it is blocked.

True Deli-caseTSID-72-3 Runs rough and makes loud noises

Not sure how you can tell if it is working too hard. A fan usually makes noise and valves in the compressor also make noise. Several things can cause icing. In most cases, something that effects air flow. Secondly, on some units with a cap tube expansion device, a shortage of Freon can cause some freezing up.
