PFSS6PKWASS GE Refrigerator Ice Maker problems

My french door GE PFSS6PKWASS refrigerator is a little over a year old and it stopped making ice a few weeks ago. This is the second time we've had this problem (last time was when it was 3 months old), but last time it was still under warranty and they had to replace some parts.

Is this a recurring porblem with this model? Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

    We have the same problem in that the ice continuously gets stuck in the Ice drawer and the GE Tech said it was a bad design. The screw mechanism that is supposed to feed the ice through the trap door is off-set and therefore piles the ice up at the trap door area. The Tech said the only solution is to empty the ise every few days at the trap door area... A pain for such an expensive fridge.

    Ice gets stuck inside and does not dispense properly. The ice sticks together and the auger will not dispense it.

SOURCE: Ice maker freezes up

In case that the ice maker fill tube is blocked with ice (as per your thought), melt the blockage using a hair dryer, but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!!! Also check the water shut-off valve and the water-inlet valve for working properly. Does this problem appears immediately after the water leaking repair ? If so, its look like the water leaking problem was "solved" by blocking the fill tube to the tray !!!

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: lg refrigerator LFX25960SW

the answer to the problem from a LG training class is... if the bottom left side of the refer is freezing food the liner has split no fix at this time. some people have beEn able to turn off the ice maker and the food will stop freezing. the ice maker has a fan in the freezer that blows all the cold air up the ice making Cobby.

DO THIS ONLY IF OUTA WARNTEE
for most of you with bad ice makers you could drill a hole in the very bottom of the ice maker towards the front right under the little metal arm in the wight plastic AND DONT DRILL DEEP just enough to put a hole in the outer case then hit it with a blow-dryer for a little bit to remove ice that's blocking the gear on that arm this works 5 outs 10 times

Hi,

Inspect the ice maker itself, sounds like either you have a jammed cube or your ice maker is not turning on heater to eject ice cubes from mold. If heater is the failure - replace ice maker. If unit is jammed, clear the ice maker mold and allow to cycle to see if damage was done to gear or ice production is restored.

Good Luck
