Ice Falls Into Freezer Compartment

We just hooked up and started using our GE fridge, and noticed that both crushed ice and block ice fall between the maker and the chute into the freezer compartment. Is there some kind of sleeve we are missing that directs ice ONLY to the chute? There does not appear to be anything directing ice to the hole and some of the ice bounces in the wrong direction. Thanks in advance.

I have a GE model GSS201EPJWW side by side fridge. The ice maker makes ice but we can not get the dispenser to operate. At times the water will work but not cubed or crushed ice. What can be done to get...

Dispenser works with a motor which might be jammed. When you see the ice storage bin, there is a steel coil which rotates with the motor and ice falls down from the dispenser. See if the coil rotates at all and if so then the motor must be defective.

G.E. Bottom freezer evap drain keeps freezing up and ice build up stops fan so no cooling in fridge compartment. How can this be solved?

When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool.Its defrost problem. Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section. You can get required parts from or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.

Ice maker crushes even when it is in the cube

If you pull out your ice bucket and look on the bottom you will see a long brass colored rod. Now, if you look inside your freezer section. you will see the slot the rod enters each and every time you insert your ice maker bucket. In the down position (normal) it produces crushed ice, When you switch the lever in the front for ice cubes, there is a plunger that lifts the rod and produces the combination that only allows ice cubes to come out. I would first check the plunger behind the panel and see if it is free.If it is not free it can cause the ice to be crushed...

Ice Maker Issues-only crushed ice works, cubed comes out crushed

There is a solinoid in the freezer section by the motor that turns the ice auger. Test it by selecting cubes and with the ice bucket out, open the door, hold the door switch so the lights turn out and push the dispenser button. It should make a loud snap and travel upward. If not then I would say you have a bad solinoid. If it does, then I would look at the bucket. the metal rod that runs along the side of the bucket opens a flap in the bucket that is supposed to let the full cubes drop. look for anything that might cause it to be hanging up.

Ge, tfx26kpda ww, ice maker only dispences crushed ice

At least yours is making ice. Mine wount even make ice. While toubleshooting my prob, I notice a metal rod on the bottom of the ice tray. This rod opens and shuts a plastic "trap door" in the tray. The position of that door determines whether the ice is crushed or whole. If the trap door is open the ice falls through the dispenser freely. If the door this closed the ice is force thorugh metal teeth where it is crushed then dispensed. Open the freezer door and take the ice tray out. You should see a hole at the back of the freezer that the metal rod goes through. In that hole there is a plastic square that moves up and down. If the set your dispenser to crushed ice, leave the door open, push in the door switch at the bottom, and press the dispenser. The plastic square does nothing while the motor is turning. That allows the door to stay closed and forces the ice through the metal teeth. If you set the dispenser to whole ice and do the same thing the plastic square is suppose to lift up forcing the door open and letting the whole ice drop freely. The plastic square probably does nothing even if you set it to whole ice. That mean the trap door never opens focing the ice to always get crushed.

Unfortunately, I have no solution because mine works and I had no need to investigate further. I hopes this helps you figure out the problem though

Good Luck.

Icemaker seems to partially melt ice while it is being stored

The number one cause of this is the door is not sealing correctly. Check that the door closes and seals as it should.

GE TFX27PFS Always makes crushed ice.

The crushed ice sounds like the solenoid in the back of the freezer may be frozen and moving the mechanism (rod) even though you can move it by hand. Take a hair dryer and heat the area where the ice bin rod fits into in order to thaw the solenoid out. You can take the whole thing apart and put a little petrolium jelly on the shaft to keep it from freezing and sticking again if you have the tools. The door alarm may be the door out of adjustment... hold the light switch down and see if that stops the alarm, if it does you can always glue an extension piece on the switch in order to reach the door again vice adjusting the door. Some of these models were very close to being out of adjustment and a few years of wear on the hinges could do that. I've even seen someone glue an extension on the door so it would press the switch better on closing. As for the water leaking, is it continuous leak or say every 12 hours you notice a little bit of water? Continuous leak is likely a solenoid valve letting water by, small leak every 12 hours or so usually means the defrost drain line is clogged and the defrost water is not making it to the holding pan but leaking out the freezer compartment instead.
