First check the switch and make sure it is not in the clean position.
Check for compressor operation. if the machine is in the clean position the compressor will not run and form ice.

GE side by side refrigerator-freezer daily makes loud grrrrrnng noise. Sporadic. Comes from area just above ice maker. Makes no difference if I turn ice maker off. Any ideas what is causing this?


Many ice maker sporadically turn to keep ice from freezing together and becoming a solid block of ice. This would occur even if the ice maker is turned off in order to keep the ice already made from freezing. It is generally short and not that loud. I'm surprised you find it disturbing.

The inlet to my icemaker is frozen and wont make ice


Most likely your machine water valve is leaking water when not asked for water for the ice maker. This small amount of water will freeze inside that tube due to freezing temperatures inside freezer.

You may need to change the water valve assembly.

Try to use a heat gun (may be a hair dryer - be careful with water area) to slightly warm up the ice maker water inlet. You have to be very careful not apply direct too much heat. It is plastic and melt. Has to very slow and mild.

Ice getting to thick and not dumping


go to the freeze timer which has off and on dip switches. take some freeze time out by moving the first switch to off this will shorten freeze time. Also check the harvest assist solenoid and plunger when it go's into harvest. make sure the machine is cleaned and check the cube plate to make sure that none of the plates are not loose this will cause ice to freeze between the loose spots and will not let ice come off the plate.

Short freeze


Ice is to thin. Check to make sure water inlet valve is not letting water go through valve during freeze cycle. Make sure condenser coil is clean and condenser fan is running. Check the hot gas valve to make sure it is not bypassing during freeze cycle.

Ice bridge too thick


look at the evap plate to see if there is a ice thickness probe, if there is it should have a screw 5/16 going through it that you can turn in or out you wont the thickness of a penny between the evaporator and the stainless sensor turn screw 1/8 of a turn at at a time let machine make a sheet of ice and keep making adjustments until you achieve the right thickness. Now if there is not a probe then the thickness is built in the run time of the control board. you can not adjust it. you need a tec to look at it to make sure your not having a harvest problem if it is not harvesting every time them ice will be to thick.

COMPRESSOR WILL FREEZE A CYCLE OR 2 THEN STOP WORKING


a symptom of low refrigerrant is that the evaporator coil will develop a small very cold area but wont cool the entire surface .. that cold area can ice up and block air flow .. the result can be an overworked compressor with little or no cooling ... other things that can cause the same trouble
1. bad or blocked air flow on the external coils or condenser fan ..
2. a leak in the door seal will allow moisture that can cause icing

if there is icing then you can turn it off with the door open until the ice melts .. then start over ..

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

U-Line icemaker is undependable


to make ice the thermo in the ice maker must be below 5 F...make sure there is a clear flow between the evaporator and the ice make also make sure you have a good seal between the freezer and the refrig areas..

2)start with the coolest setting and move 1 setting every 24 hrs.
until it up until it freezing the water.
3) coolest you can get but not freezing the refrig...
hope is help

KitchenAid Ice Machine doesn't freeze water to make ice. The water flows over the freezing plate, but no ice.


First check the switch and make sure it is not in the clean position.
Check for compressor operation. if the machine is in the clean position the compressor will not run and form ice.
