1 ice cube gets stuck when the maker dumps ice

More often than not, 1 cube of ice gets stuck in the same spot when the maker dumps ice. since it freezes to one of the the prongs, for lack of a better term, it cannot refill to make more ice. we can't ever get a full bucket of ice. as soon as you pry the cube off, it immediately resumes making ice but this has recently started happening too many times per day to keep up with.

Look at the 2 blades where the cube sticks carefully.

My bet is that the blades are ever-so-slightly bent toward one another - or the factory remove-before-use lable remmnants are still on one of the facing blades.

If label is there, remove with edge of credit card. Don't force, USE NO TOOLS
If they are metal and bent, simply bend very slightly beyond parallel and check again until straight
If they are plastic and bent, bend farther than needed and let slowly loose. Check and repeat

Good Luck!

No ice Ice maker does not fill up with water


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then check the fill tube going to the ice maker , to see if it is frozen up inside . If it is , replace the water valve behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to on the refrig . If the ice maker dumps the cubes , but does not refill with water , then the water valve is bad . If the ice maker does not dump the cubes , then replace the ice maker .

GE side x side When ice maker switch is on, freezer warms up


It sounds like the ice maker is stuck in the harvest ( dump ) mode , in the area of mold heater activation . This area , heats up the ice mold to unfreeze the cubes , and keeps rotating to dump the cubes . This heater , gets hot enough to actually burn you if you touch the mold .
I would remove the 2 screws holding the ice maker , unplug from the ice maker receptical , and replace the ice maker .

Mod. GS6NBEXRS01 not dumping ice. there is ice in the ice-maker. the dispenser for the water working ok.


take the bin out and check for a jammed ice cube in the ice cube making mechanism. Many times they have a rotating finger that gets stuck on a cube that does not drop entirely. Hope this helps

Ice Maker frost and freeze where ice drops into refrigerator door


You need a service guy to look at it. It could be water leaking or a simple case that the flap isnt sealing and the ice melts and then freezes the flap open

Ice Maker not working


Get me the model number. Put tap water in ice maker tray and make sure arm is down. Let it freeze. Wait and see if the ice will drop, this should allow water to come into the ice maker for another run. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker "ticking" sound?


Mine started doing the same thing. The problem with mine was that the part that spins around to eject the ice is hung up... first, it was trapping an ice cube in it... I cleared the cube and it stopped making noise for a while, then a cube hung up again. Now I found that one of the 'teeth,' all the way to the right, was stuck under the housing... the part is bent, and needs to be replaced.

Check the part that spins to make sure nothing is stuck. Service is expected in home soon (I hope).
