GE TBX25PR Ice Problem

Our Icemaker works fine but the large metal auger which pushes the ice to the front continues to rust heavily, putting nasty little bits of rust in everyones drink. Everytime I think I've cleaned it perfectly, it soon returns. I don't know what else to do, anyone have any ideas?

SOURCE: GE Icemaker flap door won't open causes ice jam in chute

There is an electric solenoid that opens the door. If you look up inside the dispenser you can see the solenoid. Either the solenoid is bad or the dispenser module that puts power to it is out. You will need to remove dispenser front and check for voltage to solenoid. If you have power from module, replace solenoid, if no power, replace both parts. It is common for solenoid to short out and damage the module so that both must be replaced. If solenoid is shorted and you replace module, new part will fry.

SOURCE: GE Profile Side-by-Side Refrigerator Ice Maker Issue

The Computer on the Door communicates to the Main Control Board on the rear of unit via several small low voltage DC wires .Ive had this problem and is was a bad connection under the freezer door behind the toe plate (it goes through the middle of the hinge). You can try wiggling that connector, but if it still doesnt work you may have to bypass that connector with proper techniques. Unplug before cutting or splicing, If is still doesnt work than There is no other way to tell what the issue is besides replacing display board and Main board. I would try Main board first if connection is good. Hope this helps

Icemaker is making ice but will not dispense. continues to accumulate then over time ice in the bottom of the dispenser will freeze


I can think of two possible problems. The ice has frozen together and will not allow the ice screw to push the ice out the dispenser. Or the motor for the ice screw is broken.
1. Shut off icemaker with lever at icemaker
2. Remove ice container (either throw away ice or save in another container).
3. Put back empty ice container.
4. Leave ice maker off for about an hour.
5. After an hour , check if motor is working by trying to dispense ice. You should not expect any ice but you should hear the motor /auger moving.
A) If you do not hear any thing , you need to get your motor replaced.
B) If you hear the motor , mostlikely you had an ice dam which prevented the ice dispense from working..You can turn you icemaker on.

Ice maker dispenser gets stuck. auger will not turn in the ice bucket. motor that drives auger tries to turn, but something in the front of of the auger/dispenser prevents it from turning.


I have this identical unit and have had this identical problem. What we do is remove the entire ice container from the refrigerator and shake it to break up the ice inside or we remove large chunks of adjoined 'cubes' and replace the entire tray/container and it has worked fine for us thereafter.

Icemaker makes Ice But doesn't dispense it.


Had same problem. Looked everywhere and found no solution i'm a not a repairman...they probably do not want to post so they can make 150 for a repair visit. At least try this first it may save you $$. Remove ice bucket from freezer. Remove 2 screws @ auger...remove cover and auger ....remove spring and large hex shaped shaft. heat the large shaft end with a torch and put it back in hot side toward motor until the motor end is not frozen. No torch you can use hot water...but that may freeze again.

This was happing because my flap to the ice was not closing all the way .

Manual for parts can be found here it shows ice maker parts on page 7.

Good Luck Kono

GE PSS26GRE SS not dispensing ice


Hi,
The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

You may be on the right track. Remove the ice bucket and check the square hole behind the ice bucket in the back wall of the freezer. You should be able to move the horizontal rod in it up and down with your finger. If not, it may be frozen in one position. If so, just warm the area a bit with a hair dryer to free it. Replace ice bucket and test. Another thing which may cause that is the ice auger itself may have separated from the drive shaft. (The icemaker itself has nothing to do with making "crushed" ice. It only makes cubes. The cubes are dispensed or crushed and dispensed at the front of the ice bucket using the auger and the metal parts there.) You might also want to verify that the long metal rod (which extends past the ice bucket and into that square hole) is able to move. (it is spring loaded)

Icemaker works fine, only dispenses water


make sure that the ice shoot is not clogged up with ice or the in the ice basket where the ice goes through. Sometimes the ice can be stuck together and jam and nothing will come out.

FRIGIDAIRE SIDE BY SIDE ICE DISPENSER


Have same or similar problem. MY problem turns out to be that the Auger turns fine, but there is a little metal blade that attaches to the end of the auger and transfers the spin action into this auger "hopper" (for lack of a better term) which actually accepts the ice that has been moved from the back of the ice bucket by the metal auger and then dispenses the ice into the hopper which falls into the glass. the issue is one of crappy design. It turns out that this little blade has a rectangular opening in the middle that the rectangular end of the auger fits into. If this rectangle opening gets stripped (as mine has done, and ALL are likely to do) then the auger spins, the ice is moved forward but none are picked up by the hopper, and none (or very few) fall into the glass.
Everyone should check to see if this is the case. If so you may need to order a new blade, or a new auger, or a new refrigerator.

Good Luck!
