Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
My 4 years old GE side by side refrigerator started making loud fan noise for about 5 days and now stopped. Ice bin had some solid ice which was cleared. Press the button for Quick Ice, waiting to see if it will start making ice again. Water dispenser is working fine, freezer too.
Any suggestions, if it stops making ice. Will I need to replace the Ice maker?

SOURCE: ice maker not working
have you felt water in the ice maker or ice cubes thats the only way you know for sure.. just cause water in doors works doesnt mean icemaker getting water.. got different valves giving water to different places Is your freezer temp. right.. has to be right temp for icemaker to work.. check back wall in freezer make sure no frost buildup and if fan working

Check the connector at the bottom of the freezer door first , you should also be able to hear the micro switch click when you press the paddle

Had the same problem. The water line from the valve to the ice maker was cracked due to heat from the compressor.

Hi Urban Woman,
Unfortunately, your dispenser interface board has gone to appliance parts heaven and needs to be replaced. Fortunately it's relatively cheap. If I recall correctly, all you have to do to access the dispenser board is use a small flat screwdriver. There are 2 locking "tabs"/slots on either side and underneath the board (you will barely be able to see it, they're just that small).
Of course you already know that you need to unplug the fridge before doing any repairs so I can skip that part.
Insert your screwdriver into those slots and pry the bottom of the board out. Then grasp it with your hands and remove it completely. There are three wire bundles on it, remove them and re-install them on the new board. Then simply snap the new board into place.
This should take maybe 15 minutes to do... super easy job.
p.s. Here's a link to the service manual, but the removal of the dispenser board is not in it (everything else is, though, so it may come in handy later)
p.s.s. Since you're going to be unplugging the fridge for the repair, you ought to go to Home Depot and pick up one of these to plug it back into. Transient voltage spikes are most likely the cause of all your woes... including the main board that was replaced.
