Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker not working

Our ge profile side by side is just one year old, yet yesterday we noticed that the ice maker is not working. We cleaned out the ice bin from any large clumps of ice and turned the ice maker off then on, and even set the outside panel to "quick ice", and yet today there is no ice. How do we fix this? The water is dispensing okay, so we know that the ice maker is getting water.

    I have a similar ge profile... the psc23... I noticed a puddle yesterday coming from under the fridge. Pulled it out and noticed a spray of water coming from the Tube & Grommet at top right back (rear facing)... This is where the water is pumped from the water solenoid (bottom left rear facing. Further, noticed the water inlet tube was solid-ice, blocking the inlet water. Thawed using hair dryer, and pulled out a 2" core of ice. Re-testing, and it's making ice.... However, I ordered a new Tub & Grommet for $8.00, seems it must have a crack in it.. if it sprayed water while plugged and under pressure. Also suspecting the water solenoid is "leaking" water gradually into the ice compartment thereby causing an ice-buildup in the inlet tube where it hits the freezer compartment.

    My GE Profile Artica Side by Side makes ice but the opening from the ice maker to the chute frosts over and builds up with ice preventing cubes to dispense. is this a defrost problem?

  • erd777 Jun 26, 2008

    My GE profile Arctica has the same problem, no ice coming out of the ice maker, tried everything and still does not work. I think that GE should make a recall on the icemaker part of the fridge.

    My icemaker has ice in it, but wont dispense any. Haven't had working icemaker now for over a year, and can't find a solution. I really don't want to have to call a repairman if it is something simple.

    Our GE Profile, Arctica Stainless Steel Side by Side fridge is five and half years old, it's been working great up until last week when it stopped dispensing ice. Warrantee expired a year ago! Any suggestions before we have pay someone an arm and a leg to fix it? We did try what was suggested on this site but it did not work.

    On our GE Profile 23 side by side where the water works but icemaker does not work....We replaced the water filter, as per the lady on the GE helpline. We checked to make sure the gizmo wasn't all frozen up; we shook out ice cube that we felt might be blocking; we added 1/4 cup water to the metalic bottomed ice maker; we tried the on off switch; we tried the lock switch.

    Our GE profile ice maker stopped working after about 1 year. This unit was a replacement for a GE artica. They shipped us a Stainless Profile. We have had many probs with both. This one , it seems all the probs stem around the ice maker. GE has been NO help. They wanted to charge us for a service call and parts because they said they replaced the other frig. that had sooooo many problems. I should note that the one they replaced started having problems just shy of having it a year. I would not buy another GE ever mainly because the customer service stinks! I'm going to get the replacement ice maker and replace it myself. I'll let you know how it turns out. I have cleaned the contacs and checked the unit for something jammed or the water flow cloged . all are okt

Ice dispenser will not dispens ice . light dims when pushed. ice maker works fine


It may be a good Idea to remove the ice bin, clean and dry ant the same time with bin removed see if while pushing the door light switch and the dispense ice control if the auger fork in the rear of the ice bin that normally turns the auger will rotate. Sometimes ice or water collects in the bin and locks the motor from turning and sometimes the motors go bad. Tell me your results, Thanks, Sea Breeze
