I have a GE Profile refrigerator the does not produce ice cubes
We went on vacation a month ago and shut of the water main to our house while we were gone. Upon return, we turned on our water main supply and out GE profile refrigerator no longer produces ice cubes automatically. Did something freeze up in the ice maker unit while the water supply was shut off? How do I fix the problem?

The fill tube that runs water into icemaker has most likely frozen up use a hair dryer and heat the tube up until the ice melts out then it should start up agian. you may have to remove the icemaker to gain full access to the fill tube. good luck peyton

i have same fridge with same prob makes 6 cubes of ice in a day with a lot of noise like you discribed also i have water collecting under crisper drawer of fridge i have to clean out water once a month or so still trying to figure out how to take ice maker out to fix
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.
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.
I had the same problem where one of the solinoids in the valve- the one controlling water to the ice machine had stopped working. A good test is to pour water into where the ice cubes are made. If ice cubes come out then the problem is most likely in the valve. I replaced my valve for the second time in 8 years today and the ice is comming out nicely.
