Icemaker not working, freezer not getting cold enough....

I have a GE Profile side by side, TFH30PRTA, and icemaker not working. Freezer doesn't seem to get cold enough even after adjusting temp control and have replaced water valve 2 months ago. This problem just started as the icemaker worked with no problems prior to this issue. Any suggestions?

Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Unit icemaker wont make ice cubes or is slow to make cubes


The thermostat that cycles the icemaker is not working. Or freezer temp is not cold as it could be. Try setting freezer setting to E and fresh food to 8. Make sure not to have anything that freeze real easy on top shelf. Put can drinks on this shelf or pickles. I hope this helps.

Makes ice but is very slow to dispense and makes a load bumping noise


Turn off the water to the icemaker. Locate the plug from the icemaker to the freezer & disconnect it. There is usually 2 screws under the icemaker that mounts it to the freezer, remove them. Some may have a screw or 2 in the top also. these are only short sheetmetal screws. You should then be able to extract the icemaker, a short hose attatched to the icemaker will come out of the back of the freezer. When complete the freezer/frig will work fine. Thaw out the icemaker, drain the water out, inspect the rotating finger grate area for any objects. Shaking it upside down may help. Reinstall & test, if it doesn't work it is bad. You can take it to an appliance repair store to replace.

The icemaker will not work


you might need to replace the icemaker or the freezer isnt getting cold enough for the icemaker to operate correctly. if freezer isnt getting cold enought for icemaker to operate correctly you should probably have it checked by a tech. if the icemaker isnt taking water you also could have a bad water valve

All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.

Water seems to be flowing into icemaker fine. When I turn on the icemaker the water flows for a few seconds then stops, I have waited to see if the cycle to dump works and it seems as if it never attempts...


If your freezer temperaures are good i.e. it freezes ice cream and the like, then you need to replace trhe icemaker. Typically, under normal conditions, the icemaker would dump a load of cubes @ every 1-1/2 hours. Icemaker part number WR30x10093 @ $148.00 from Marcone Appinace parts or AP Wagner

New GE profile bottom freezer fridge intermittent buzzing


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.

Ice machine not making ice


Hi, everak11,
Three possible solutions for you.
1: No water coming in from inlet valve. Check voltage on inlet if you have voltage and no water then replace valve.
2:Icemaker not cycleing. Lift the arm on the icemaker to shut it off and leave it for about an hour. Come back in and turn the icemake back on by lowering the arm. If the icemaker does not begin a new cycle and the arm start rising then the problem is most likely an icemaker. Replace Icemaker
3:Refrigerator not cold enough. If the freezer is not getting cold enough the icemaker will not cycle. Check the temperature in the freezer and make sure it is getting down to 0 degrees. If not then you may have another problem with your refrigerator. I hope this helps you, Let me know if you have any other questions or symptoms. Mike
