Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
Recently purchased/installed replacement ice maker in my GE Profile refrigerator. It is making ice as it should, however need to decrease by "just a TAD" the amount of water being dispensed as the cubes are freezing and dumping into the ice bin with a small strip of ice between the individual cubes. This is resulting in numerous ice "jam-ups" when the ice is dispensing. -------- I see and know how to decrease the amount of water BUT need a tool to fit the very small hexagon? adjustment stem. (I have a shop full of tools and have tried numerous different tools, but have nothing to reach/fit the hexagon? adjustment stem). IS THERE A SPECIAL TOOL THAT CAN BE PURCHASED, (or) ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO GET TO THE WATER ADJUSTMENT?
That is an Allen wrench, just buy a cheap set of them at the hardware store.

All units made today have defrost timers to clear ice from the evaporator. Some of the ice sublimates...turns directly into humidity in the air in the box. It re-condenses in the ice tray area. It is possible that nothing is wrong other than excessive opening of the bin area or the defrost timer is running slow and staying on too long. You may also be consuming the ice too slowly. Can you either change the amount of ice in the bin by adding something to simulate part of the ice content or shut off ice production against low demand?

need to call ge at 1800-386-1215 some of these sxs have a door insulation issue that they will either send replacement doors to an authorized service company to exchange at no cost to you or offer a rebate for a newer model. yours might be in this group
have your model and serial number out of the ref located in the refrigerator section, about 4-5 inches from the celing down the right side and call and see

check the water valve on the back of the ref. it sends water to the ice maker and water in the door one can work and the other one not

I found that the door on the GE side by side doors are not accessable and cannot be repaired if a water line inside the door is defective. The entire door must be replaced at a cost of almost $370. The problem, which seems to be quite common relative to the lack of water at the dispenser, is the result of the water tube in the door freezing due to excess cold levels in the freezing compartment. This is probabley due to poor insulation around the water line as in exits near the ice dispenser gate. The solution is simple, lower the freezing level and use water frequently to keep it from freezing. Also, keep the lines clean by changing the filter often if the local water source is laden with particulates. I think GE should foot the bill for changing doors or re-engineer the doors to access the area where the water line makes contact with the cold surface of the inside panal.
