GE Profile TFT25 PR. Ice maker quit producing

GE Profile TFT25 PR. Ice maker quit producing ice. The dispenser continues to work normally. No water enters the ice maker. What can I check or replace? Is there a filter located in the water supply? At the water supply connection the solenoid operated valve appears to be a dual arrangement. If one controls the dispenser does the other control the ice maker water? Could this be the problem area?

    I had the same problem with a different side by side model. The ice maker quit making ice, while the water flowed fine, and the ice maker mechanism seemed to turn just fine. Turned out I did 1 thing to fix it. I turned back down the freezer temperature setting from 5 degrees, to 0 degrees. Walllah.....in about 30-40 minutes it began spitting out ice again. It seems it won't work at a higher than normal setting. Also, I hapened to change water filter today and it not onl produces a stronger flow of clean water, it puts out a serving of high quality, clear ice about every 45 minutes. Before anyone goes to the trouble of paying for unnecessary parts and hassle, try what I did first.

The solenoid valves on the back of the unit where the house water supply connects, have screens in them. They are similar to the aerator screens in your bathroom or kitchen faucets. The one supplying the icemaker may be plugged with debris. The solenoid valve itself may also be burned out if debris is not your problem.

If your model is the PSS25MGMWW and the water dispenser is not workingthe problem is most likely the=> WR57X10026 Water Inlet Valve Most times the ice dispenser and water to the ice maker will continue to work properly while the half of the water control valve will fail and stop water to the dispenser or ice maker. Follow the instructions in the video and I will be here if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker in our GE profile refrigerator is not working


Ice maker Diagnostic Test:

- Remove the ice bucket
-Turn the ice maker off, wait 15 seconds than turn it back on
-Press the ice paddle three times, this will begin diagnostic test.
-PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH ICE MAKER DURING DIAGNOSTICS

-In 3 minutes you should see the rack inside turn 360 degrees
-AND the ice maker bowl should fill with water

-IF either DID NOT work, call 1-800-GE-CARES for ice maker replacement. A service call is approx $80. The $80 will be deducted from the part/labor if you choose to purchase/install parts from the service technician. If not, you will pay for the service call. Good luck.

Me GE Profile PSC23M Side by side ice maker quit making ice and water was on floor behind refrig. Is a water line frozen or clogged or do I have to replace ice maker?


It sounds like you just have a leak at the back. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser and watch on the back for where the water may be leaking before it gets up to the ice maker.
