Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Ice maker My G.E. Eterna refridgerator will dispense water or ice but will not create new ice . I had a tech out who I paid to tell me I needed a new mother board and it would cost about $500 . I paid $1300 for the fridge . So I bought a motherboard myself ($125), installed it properly . The fridge seems to work better but still no new ice . I really can't afford anything( no work since Sept.) so I 'm hoping to fix it for minimal. Should I have changed the thermostat ?( it is cheap in cost ) Or what else might work ?

Try filling the ice maker with water. If it works this one time check or replace the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Let me know, Sea Breeze

I would guess that you need to purge the air out of the lines and system for it to work correctly. You can hold down the water dispenser for awhile to help, but if you do nothing, it should purge itself over the next few days.

WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

Blake are you talking about the dispenser control board? The ice maker tells the water control valve to come on for the preset amout of time to refill the ice trays most times about 7.5 seconds. and filling ice maker with tap water will test icemaker.

Electrolux will not make ice. the water will dispense


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Eterna series side by side ice maker doesn't make ice


Hi: . In the warm weather your freezer can warm. I don't mean just frozen. Your freezer has to be at 0 degrees to harvest ice. Ice cream should be rock hard. Set your freezer colder and don't trust cheap thermometers. Also don't do the human thing and check the freezer every 30 minutes to see if ice is made. It will take 24hrs at zero degrees and opening the freezer a lot will not help matters. Hope this helps, Jeff This happens to me every summer. The ice maker will stop or slow.

The same thing happened to me. If you pull the refrigerator out and remove the large silver panel, you will see the water lines on the left. The line going to the ice maker was fine, but the line going to the water dispenser was split. You may have the same issue.
