Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW
I have a GE refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. It came with our house. We'd never used the icemaker, and kept the bar in the up (off) position. One day we inadvertently dropped the ice maker bar, and the icemaker started making ice. Since them every time we try to stop the ice maker from making ice by raising the bar, the refrigerator makes a loud buzzing or motor-like noise and the freezer leaks water. The water seems to come from the vent at the top of the freezer in the back. When we start up the ice maker the problem goes away. Do I need a new icemaker? can I just disconnect the water line from the icemaker to stop the problem?
SOURCE: ice maker
verify the water supply to the valve first, second verify valve to icemaker works(unit has dual valve at rear bottom of fridge, switch plugs, then press water dispenser and see if icemaker fill with water ) if fills icemaker is bad , if not valve is bad. replace one or the other.

Ge refrigerator, ice maker seems to work but ice is not dispensed. If I open drawer and move ice towards the front it will dispense one or two pieces of ice.

If the buzzing is a short (say 5 seconds) every once in a while, it sounds like the water is valve being energized. That would mean the icemaker is turned on and is cycling. Besides the noise, when it cycles it turns on the mold heater, which you do not need if not making ice, and thus is actually adding heat to your freezer, increasing operating cost. Just turn the icemaker off by flipping the toggle switch on the icemaker itself. It is a white switch near the bottom corner of the icemaker. Should be easy to spot.
