I have the same problem, although mine is intermittent. Apparently it's a problem with the line freezing. For an excellent discussion of the issue, see http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/advice/t-14182.html

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile

The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

SOURCE: error message on fridge "er ff"

Error code Er FF indicates that the evaporator fan has failed, or at least is not sending a signal to the electronic controls. Open the door and see if the evaporator fan is running inside the freezer compartment. If that fan stops, then no cold air will be sent to the refrigerator compartment and it will warm up. Possible causes include bad motor, bad connection, bad electronics.

SOURCE: exterior finish on stainless steel model peeling

Just a thought. Our frigidaire stainless steel refrigerator came with a temorary protective film on the steel parts that we peeled off after it was installed. Is it possible you never removed your film when you got your refrigerator? That may be what is starting to peel off now. Again, just a thought, I could be wrong.

Makes ice for 3 cycles then stops running.Can turn off then on again to make more ice for a couple more cycles.


check the cycle time for a batch of ice. should take around 15 minutes to freeze and then you will hear the harvest cycle kick in. If the harvest cycle takes 3 minutes or more that is your problem. You will need to get a hold of NICKEL SAFE ICE MACHINE CLEANER. DO NOT use CLR or any kind of cleaner other than NICKEL SAFE ICE MACHINE CLEANER. If the ice doesn't fall off of the plate in about 90 seconds either the plate is dirty or the nickel plating has come off. There is a failsafe shut down if the unit takes more than 60 minutes to freeze or more than 3 minutes to harvest 3 consecutive times. The cleaning instructions should be inside of one of the covers. If not it's available online.

I'm having problem with my icematic 132M . I freezes the cubes allright , but the cubes doesnt fall out before the harvest stops, so the cubes is still hanging on in the machine which causes the m


First i would clean the machine per manufacturers instructions with nickel safe cleaner and sanitizer. When the plates get dirty it will cause ice to hang on to plate. Also check the thickness of ice if to thick it will not come off plate.

GE Monogram ZDIS15 has ice (sometimes) getting stuck on freezing plate. It gets hot & tries to release, but only partially (sometimes works fine). I have cleaned with solution, run the cleaning cycle...


It is time to run a ice machine cleaner through the unit, instruction should be on the door. When you get a build up is causes your ice to bind to the evaporator plate and cause this problem. Most ice machines require cleaning every 6 month to prevent this. Use nickel safe cleaner only, and most of the time this will correct the ice binding on that evaporator plate.
I hope this helps

just to let you know you need to use nickel safe ice machine cleaner. and i hate to tell you this but if you are seeing silver chips in your ice your evaporator is shot. even if it is under warranty they will not give a new plate just for the reason of not using nickel safe cleaner. hope this helps you. i have seen this many times as im a service tech. alot of restaurant owners use coffee cleaner and also destroy their plates

CLR will work great, just rinse the ice maker very well after cleaning the calcium deposits and throw out the first few batches or bins of ice produced after the cleaning process. Good luck !
