Question about U-Line Refrigerator Ice Maker

1 Answer

Icemaker seems to partially melt ice while it is being stored

I have a GE Frost Free Side by side Fridge/Freezer with ice maker included. Ice seems to be congealing in the storage compartment and will not come out the dispenser when required. Doesn't matter whether I require cubed or crushed ice.

The number one cause of this is the door is not sealing correctly. Check that the door closes and seals as it should.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

GE Side by Side, Frost Free, model TFF19DWB, frost beginning to build up in the freezer, freezer not freezing, and fridge not cooling enough.


You have bad defrost heater. Remove the back wall of the freezer and use ahir dryer to melt all of the ice from the coils. Replace the heater that is at the bottom of the coils and you will be good to go. Should be able to get the heater from any appliance parts store. Melting the ice off the evaporators will buy you about 5 days of cooling which should give plenty of time to get the heater changed. Good luck and hope this helps.

Hi. I have a GE GSS22WGMC side by side and for a


you might have 2 problems. First I think you have either a defrost problem or a evaperator fan problem.

Look at the lower back wall of the freezer and if you see frost build up then you have a defrost problem.

also open the freezer door and press the door switch button that makes the light go off and listen for the fan. if you don't here the fan its a good chance that it could be bad.

I would wait on the ice maker issue until the cooling issue is resolved because it could be causing the ice maker problem.

If you dont here the fan then ckeck it in 60 min again and if you still dont here the fan it is mostlikley bad.

If you do have the frost then one of the following compontents could be bad: Defrost heater, Defrost limiter or the Defost Timer.

Both top sections fridge/freezer of my side by side are not cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.

Ice Dispenser


If you access the ice container and remove any partially melted ice - maybe the ice maker will work. We had a similar problem. We opened the ice reservoir and discovered ice cubes that had partially melted together. Once we removed those, the ice maker and water dispenser returned to normal. Now we check every so often.
