Question about Refrigerators

3 Answers

I have an ice maker to a ge side by side M#-bsy25gfmdww. It is not getting water to the ice maker but is getting water to the door dispensor. I replaced the water inlet valve, and have power to both the dispensor and ice maker solenoids. I checked the icemaker line for ice and it is free and clear, any ideas on what is being overlooked?

    thanks I will check the inside temp.

  • squirerv Dec 26, 2008

    I have also verified freezer temp at o degrees and lower. My fill line is not plugged with ice because I used the water dispenser solenoid to put water in the ice tray. The ice maker solenoid does have power to it from ice maker but does not send water to ice maker. What else could be wrong? If it is the ice maker itself gone bad, how do I verify that is the problem? Thanks.

The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice 
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

    has the filter recently been changed?

    if so, there may be air in the line and it needs to be cycled a few times before seeing ice.

  • blueextc3221

    also, be sure the tray is all the way in activating the limit switch. Have you checked that limit switch for proper operation??

    Also, be sure the icemaker switch is in the ON position.

    lastly the ice dispenser may be locked. Press and hold the LOCK CONTROL for 3 seconds.

Most profiles use the electronic ice makers and when they stop like that usually means the complete ice maker needs replaced. The part number is WR30X10093. There are no fixable parts. I had to just buy one myself. Sea Breeze

OK, that should be no problem. Test your ice maker and fill with water if empty of ice. If full of ice and not moving to dump tell me. I need to help you locate the problem doing that and answering will tell me the problem. Also look around the door frame and inside for the model Profile that you have. and get back with me as soon as possible, Thanks Sea Breeze

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

GE side by side refrigerator: water/ice dispensor


I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...
