I have a 10 year old GE profile side by side refridge with icemaker.
Model is TFH22PRR A WW. Itw as working fine until the wife ''cleaned the icemaker bin''. When the unit was replaced, the icemaker made one round of ice, and then did not refill the ice trays, therefore no more ice.
The HOW service guy came out, said Icemaker is only covered for Repair, not replacement. He checked the unit mechanically, checked water valve at bottom of unit, couldn't find anything wrong, said to wait 24 hours and see if we get ice, if not, $129 to replace the icemaker.
Icemaker made one round of ice, and quit, did not refill tray. Ise dispensing and water dispensing, and crushed ice work fine so motor is not bad. I suspect that water valve. DOes this unit only have one water valve in the base, dual for water in door and icemaker with relays, or is there a second valve in icemaker? Can anything go wrong in the icemaker unit that will cause this with a good water valve?
Any ideas on what is causing this?

if you press the arm that slides out to feel the ice all the way in three times within a few seconds, this should start a harvest cycle. If it does, then you know it can cycle and you have a temperature issue.
your ice can freeze even at 25 degrees, but it won't harvest unless it is getting to about 8 degrees or colder, so check the temps in the freezer
If the water pressure for water through the door is low I would check your saddle valve that taps into the line. I would next check your icemaker fill tube to make sure it is not frozen. If it is then you will need to replace the saddle valve because it is due to low water pressure.
You can try to manually harvest the icemaker by turning the power switch off-on-off-on and then pushing the lever in three times in a row. This will harvest the icemaker. If the icemaker harvests and the rake moves then its most likely still good. (if theres a batch of cubes frozen in the ice maker then its def bad.) If you get it to harvest and no water comes in then you will know its a water supply issue.
Replacing the inlet valve and saddle valve will most likely correct the issue. You may only need a new saddle valve and they only cost about 10 bucks.
Let me know if this helps _MJ_
You need to replace the icemaker . Pt # 2198597 . When you open the freezer door . the laser flash 2 times , then pause , then 2 more times continually (normal) ? If the laser does not light at all , then icemaker is in the harvest mode ( may be stuck , replace icemaker ) . If in harvest mode , even slightly , jumper will not work .
GE uses an electronic icemaker that is not field serviceable. if the Icemaker is getting water then something in the icemaker has failed and the complete icemaker must be replaced. the part number is wr60x10093 I believe and can be purchased online and many different places or thru local appliance parts supply house. thanks peyton
I have a 1993 year (16 years old now) Whirlpool side-by-side with icemaker, Model ED22PW. I have had similar problems with the icemaker - water goes in, freezes, but ice does not eject from tray. It has happened to this unit 2 times since 1993. It turns out the problem is not the thermostat. It is the icemaker motor module. The icemaker has a small synchronous (clock) motor that rotates the ice ejector. When it goes bad, the ejector does not rotate, either because the module timer had failed or the motor itself has failed. The solution is to go to your nearest applinace parts dealer and by a new "icemaker motor module" for Whirlpool Model (your model here). Mine cost $58.85 the last time I replaced it in 2006. To install the new module, you will need to remove the icemaker from the refrigerator. Mine has 3 screws that attach it to the side. Also unplug the power & control cable. The water tube slides out when you pull the unit forward. When you get it out, it is then easy to remove the motor module and insert the new one. You may have to reset the timer on the module to get the tray to fill completely.
Hi!!! Also make sure that your freezer section is bet'w 5 to 10 degrees if not then you have a frig problem..If you have 10 degrees or so then you have an icemaker thermostat control problem.You have to buy another icemaker unless you can replace the icemaker thermostat inside of it..Good luck..
Turn the icemaker off for 15-20 seconds at the rocker switch on the side of the icemaker body (square white box)Turn switch back on and immediately press the feeler arm (white paddle) in and out three time. This should start a test cycle. If still no water after it runs through a test harvest cycle (will take about 4-5 minutes), remove the icemaker and look at the ring finger size plastic tube that allows water flow into the icemaker. It is probably full of ice (because of a plugged filter or some other water supply interruption -possibly while you were changing the filter). If the tube is iced up warm it up gently with a hair dryer being extra careful not to get drops of water in the hair dryer nozzle. Do NOT use too high of a heat setting as that tube will melt... complicating things unnecessarily
