GE PSC23SGRDSS Icemaker not working

I have about a 13 month old GE Profile PSC23SGRDSS that all of sudden, ice maker is not working/not making any ice. I'm still able to get water out of the dispenser, but no ice. Where to begin?

Re: GE PSC23SGRDSS Icemaker not working

Take the ice maker out and pull the square cover off of it. If you have the type with a plastic "gear" (about the size of a half dollar) on it check to see if the tabs that hold it in place are not broken (it's common). The gear can get cocked or even fall off and that will cause the IM to stop working. If it's the type with a circuit board in it check it for loose connectors, etc. Both types have a thermostat in them to sense the temp of the freezer (must be about 15-17F for IM to work). It's rare that the t-stats go out but it can happen. The "motor module" is a high failure item (about $60 bucks and easy to replace). Let us know what you find.

    Home from vacation--no ice.

    Check the fill area of the ice maker for an ice blockage.

    - make sure the tube on the back of the Ref. is connected to the white rectangled block of the fill tube.

    - check to make sure the water filter in the bottom of the unit was not kicked and has popped out or is not seated / locked in place.

    - Check to see if water is actually getting to the unit.. from the 1/4 inch supply line.

    If your icemaker is the common one there here is a way to test it:

    (I noted GE Profile but not an exact model number)

    Ice maker in our GE profile refrigerator is not working

    Ice maker Diagnostic Test:

    - Remove the ice bucket
    -Turn the ice maker off, wait 15 seconds than turn it back on
    -Press the ice paddle three times, this will begin diagnostic test.

    -In 3 minutes you should see the rack inside turn 360 degrees
    -AND the ice maker bowl should fill with water

    -IF either DID NOT work, call 1-800-GE-CARES for ice maker replacement. A service call is approx $80. The $80 will be deducted from the part/labor if you choose to purchase/install parts from the service technician. If not, you will pay for the service call. Good luck.

    The icemaker is bad . You have an electronic icemaker and the internal boards cannot take the freezing and the heat (freezing moisture) . Just replace the icemaker .

    My water dispenser suddenly has stopped working.

    Yes, it could be the water filter. Also check to make sure the water is turned on and that any lines to the refrigerator aren't kinked or crushed somewhere. It's also possible that you will not be making any ice as well if your appliance has an ice maker
