I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Hi

Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

Icemaker--
The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Can't get ice bucket back into place to make ice...what are we doing wrong.


First, turn the icemaker off by raising the wire "bar" that is attached to the icemaker until it clicks into the raised position.

Second, if your freezer has an ice dispenser system, make note of the position of the drive gear at the back of the freezer. It will have two prongs that will need to mate with the icemaker bucket. If they aren't lined up with the icemaker bucket auger, then turn the auger by hand until it will line up with the prongs.

Finally, check for a stray ice cube resting inside the freezer, either on the back wall or on the side rails where the bucket rests.

My icemaker isn't working. There's no water in the trays and it doesn't sound like it's trying. The model is tbx18ci.


Not sure what setup your ice maker has to let it know when the ice tray is full, but some ice makers have a bail that goes up with rising ice levels. When the ice bucket fills up, the ice maker shuts down.

Lifting the bail up all the way until it catches on a small ledge turns this type ice maker off. If ice is allowed to stack in the bucket too high, or is shoved back as someone scooped out ice, the bail may inadvertently have been pushed onto the ledge.

Bottom line; check whatever method your ice maker uses to turn off ice production when the bucket is full to see if it is in the OFF position.

My GE Profile refrig ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why would this happen?


Not enough water is being pumped into the icemaker. The water pressure in the water line coming into the refrigerator may be too low, perhaps due to a blockage somewhere.

Move the refrigerator enough to get behind it. Turn off the water at the small valve which connects the water line from the house plumbing to the tube going into the refrigerator. Get a bucket. Remove the refrigerator water line from the on-off valve (there should be a compresson nut holding it on). Point the incoming water line into the bucket and open the valve. Do you have a good flow of water? If so, either there is a blockage in the tubing within the refrigerator or the water valve at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator is malfunctioning.

Why is the ice maker not droping ice / Mod. ET1FTTXKQ00 / Type C21TFA01 Whirlpool 08-01


Take a 4 inch piece of 14 gauge insulated wire and strip 1 inch of insulation off each end. Bend the wire into a U shape.Remove the plastic cover from the front of the icemaker. Insert the bare ends into the terminals marked T and H on the face of the icemaker. The wheel should move and dispense the ice into the bucket. If it does not move and drop the ice replace the icemaker.

Water leaks inside unit wher selenoid calls for water


The fill tube that goes into the water cup of the icemaker make sure its in with a clip on the cup to hold it downwards. Sometimes the clip is off and the tube sprays out of the icemaker. Also check to see if flakes are in the ice. That would mean that the teflon is peeling off and forcing the water out of the icemaker.

Sub-Zero 632 Ice Maker Leaking into Ice Bucket


Ice Maker is overflowing and leaking into the ice bucket: There are several things to check for.
Go for the easy stuff first, make sure the icemaker is level, some of the plastic liner fridge's will move and allow the icemaker to tilt over and leak. Other troublemakers..... the fill valve
staying on and over filling the icemaker..... the finish sometimes comes off the icemaker body and all the ice cubes don't come out. This will allow the new water to fill on top of an icemaker
that still has a ice cube or two left inside the body, if you have had trouble with black specs in your ice cubes, this may have been the beginning of your finish problem on the icemaker body.
On the module style ice makers (Whirlpool, Maytag Family, Sub Zero) the printed circuit in the
module head often wears and the contacts become too long and allow the icemaker to over fill = new ice maker or new module head.
waterfilladjustment.jpg
Older style icemakers: This gear is bad for breaking and the icemaker quits turning to eject the ice.
You can remove the front cover to see the gear.
This is a common parts breakdown of the older style icemakers

Water fill volume: The water fill adjustment screw will change the fill volumes by changing the fill time.
One half to one full turn usually ( approx ) is equal to 20cc ( 0.68oz ) to 40 cc.
The correct fill is usually 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).
When a water valve is replaced the fill volumes must be re-checked!

Icemaker won't crush ice


FRIGIDAIRE SIDE BY SIDE ... WON'T CRUSH ICE...

... makes ice and dispenses H20 just fine.

Found this solution elsewhere on line, just adjusting the white plastic "thingy" a la #2 mentioned below solved my problem, yippee!

SOLUTION:
"The most common reason for this problem is frost forming on the shaft of a solenoid that shifts the ice bucket discharge from cubed to crush.
1.Take the ice bucket out, and look at the back wall of the frig. You should see a small hole that lines up with a metal arm that was sticking out the back of the ice bucket. In the hole you can see the end of the mechanism that moves the ice bucket arm.
2. With your finger you should be able to move it up and down about half an inch or so. If you can't, you have found your problem. Sometimes you can just free them up by working it up and down a few times.
3. If that fails you will need to remove the whole panel to get access. Thaw it out, dry it out, then put a little lithium grease(very thin coating) on the shaft, and put it back together.

Sometimes the (solenoid)coil is bad, or the inside of the coil has distorted it's shape inside so the shaft won't move. Then you need a part.

good luck, let us know what you found
