Re: Ice maker will not despense when full of ice
Hello , that is exactly what is happening this is caused by 1 of 2 things.
1- the module/control on the front of your ice maker is sticking during its cycle and over timing the fill stage.
2-your inlet valve located in lower rear at water line connection is not sealing causing water to seep through line to ice tray and overfill.
Both are common issues and the most cost efficient way to repair this is to order the ice maker kit that contains both the ice maker and the valve so you can guarantee the fix.
You can purchase on line with your model number for around $100 Calling a service company will cost at least $150 changing only one of these parts or about $200+ for both.

There is a few things that you will need to check to isolate the problem. this first thing is locate the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker. What you are looking for is any ice frozen inside causeing an overspray of sorts. If that checks good, then the next thing is look at the icemaker itself. Look at where the water goes to and freezes. Is it completely full of frozen water? if so then the water valve is sending too much water either because the ice maker called for it or the valve stuck and didn't close when it was supposed to. If its not full, look at the bottom of the ice maker, checking if there are any cracks allowing water to fall into the bin. My personal opinion though would be to change the ice maker and the water valve because of the age of the machine. the bad part is the actual icemaker for that model has been discontinued but I believe you can use a whirlpool style that matches, comes in a kit that has both the water valve and icemaker, and cost almost half the price as the original. that part number is 1129313
You have to close the water supply tap from the source a little. This will decrease the volume of water being pumped into the ice maker. If this doen't work then you need to replace the solenoid valve that feed the water to the ice maker.
you need to remove the i/m from the freezer and make sure the "fill cup" doesnt have an ice blockage. thats where the water has to funnel into the mold. it can get a drip into the cup and then freeze in the cup. clear it out once and try it again, but if it happens once or twice again , then you might have to replace the water inlet valve.
I have a GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side refrigerator that makes plenty of ice but will not dipense when the lever is pushed. The dispenser makes not sound when engaged. What do you think the problem is.
Do you mean the ice cubes are too large to be individual cubes and come out as a lump? The water is filled by a timed fill so if the fill solenoid stays open a little and drips water into the cube tray it will have more water than normal.
I guess I'm not sure if you mean the ice cubes are stuck together in the tray or are they sticking together in the holding bin area?
