Question about GE Profile PSS26PSTSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer forming ice stalagtite under ice tray

The ice compartment on our GE profile PSS26PSTB side by side is leaking water such that is it creating ice stalagtites under the ice bin. The ice measures about 16 inches long. Everything in the freezer appears to be staying very cold - so it is strange that this is happening. There is also ice forming near the bottom of the refrigerator behind the second bin from the bottom. Any help would be appreciated

Sounds like the ice maker is allowing too much water in to the tray. There is an adjustment screw under the front cover of the ice maker. A 1/8 turn at a time counter clockwise will shorten the time the water delivery solenoid is open. It is possible that something foreign is keeping the solenoid valve to stay open too long, so it should be inspected too.

SOURCE: GE Profile PSS26PSTB refrigerator ice melts inside icemaker

when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,you could have a bad evap fan motor,also if there's ice on the back wall you have a defrost problem,take off the inside back wall of the freezer where the ice is,you need to shut the control off and melt out all the ice,g.e. has had alot of problems with their computer boards which is a very expensive part number WR49X10152 around 200 bucks,look behind the kick plate on the bottom of the fridge and hopefully the tech sheet will be there,it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost,do this first before you melt anything out or before you touch the control,i think you click the lite switches together 5 times to make it go into defrost,it should tell you on the tech sheet,if ithe heater doesn't come on you need to read out the heater with a meter to see if it's good also read out the defrost thermostat,you have to check the thermostat while it's cold if the t-stat warms up you won't be able to check it, you should change out the t-stat anyway so you can cut the wires going to the t-stat,bypass it by connecting the wire directly to the heater and click the lite switches 5 times and the heater should come on,if it does leave the heater on to help you melt it out.so if the fan is running on the freezer side,click the lite switches 5 times and the fan should shut off and then you'll know it's in defrost,the heater should come on ,if the heater and t-stat read good and it won't go into defrost then it 's the board,also you can take out the board in the back of fridge ,unplug it first and look at the board for burn marks on the back or on the soldered spots,the board tells it when to go into defrost and melt the ice off the coil and like i said g.e.has had a lot of problems with the board,if you need any more help let me know,good luck

How can I stop my icemaker from making a block of ice? At the front of the ice bin, a block of ice is forming as though wateer is drippping into the bin.


Open the freezer and remove the ice bucket. You should now see the tray were the ice cubes freeze, check to see if it is fractured or leaking and the position of the water outlet pipe to the ice tray. If the water pipe is firing water out of the tray just readjust it.

hope this helps you.

GE Profile Side by side- lines from custom cool covered with ice


I can't give you a solution but I can tell you that we have exactly the same situation. The freezer seems to work but we come back and water has dripped from the ice holder and formed a classic stalagtite (or is it a stalagmite?) Obviously something has melted. We have also found items in the freezer melted - yet the digital readout said it was 3 degrees! Arghhhhh. Glenn in Delaware

Our ge profile is leaking water above the icemaker, help


Sounds like the inlet water valve for the icemaker is not shutting off 100%. That would result in either A.) a block of ice plugging the tube where the water passes through from the outside of the freezer into the freezer compartment, or B.) an ice waterfall in the freezer into the ice bin and/or down the back wall of the freezer compartment.
Solution to either: replace water valve and remove ice with the aid of a hair blower.

Water leaking - GE Profile Refrigerator, Model: TPX21PRX


Check to see if the drain at the bottom of your freezer is plugged. When the refrigerator goes on defrost, the water has to go somewhere. Look below the coils in the freezer section and see if there is ice in the drain.

Leaking water


In back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel you will find a hose going into the drain pan under the refrigerator. Check and make sure there is no obstruction in the hose which would back up water into the freezer. After the drain hose is cleared the freezer should be defrosted and ice cleared from the drain area in the back. You can direct some hot water with some bleach in it through the drain to insure it flows into the pan.
