SOURCE: GE Monogram ZISS480DMCS Ice Maker Problem

The water solenoid valve should have 120v going to it. (You will need a multimeter to chk this). You will need to also chk. for proper ground when verifying the 120v. If you get 120v on each of the pin clips, then your plug is not properly grounded, which means that you need a new ice maker circuit board. This is located in the in dispenser (front panel opens).

SOURCE: ge monogram bottom freezer ice maker spills ice

It takes weeks for ice to dissipate in a freezer.
You may can adjust your cut off lights or wire cut off to cut off before it's so full.

SOURCE: Ice build up bottom of freezer and water on floor GE Monogram

I had the same problem. The drain tube is located below the pan below the fins at the rear of your freezer. The drain tube has a trap (s-shaped curve) to prevent air flow out of the freezer. The problem is that water gets in this tube and freezes. I took the sheet metal cover off the back, got a turkey baster and flexible tube, and continuously flushed hot water (after the freezer had been turned off around an hour to thaw). Eventually the plug gave way.

SOURCE: GE Monogram Built-in refrig has blocked evaporator drain.

You should be able to see the drain under the coil. Part 804 on this diagram. Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing.

I Have a GE monogram 1989 refrig. Model BISB42EKB


The defrost thermostat is located at the left rear side of the evaporator coils. Sometimes you will have to deinstall the fan blower to access it and sometimes you can get your hands around the fan. Watch out for the plastic clips because if they are cold, they will be brittle. You can access through the front, after removing the fan and the shields surround it. Try the shields first, and then see if your hands are small enough to fit around the fan motor. Just warm the clips with a hair dryer so you don't have to replace.

Need to replace my ZISB42DCA should I go with latest Monogram or a comparable Profile or switch to Kitchenaide. We have had a lot of problems with this one but it came with the house.


I have a 42" GE monogram refrig: ZISB420DMC. Water dispenser has had all kinds of problems and I've already had it fixed once. Same for ice dispenser. I just get ice directly out of the bin rather than have it dispense ice. This refrig also doesn't seem to have very much storage space. I can't even put a large pot in the refrig because of that silly light in the back of the refrigerator. I don't like GE refrigerators anymore. I've seen friends and family buy the Samsung refrigerators. They are really nice and I would get a Samsung. Here in Hawaii, Lowes seemed to have the best prices on the Samsung refrigerators.

GSH25JFRFWW evaporator fan makes loud deep noise at times


GE refrigerators have a faulty design, and so don't defrost completely, so ice builds up in the evaporator coils and on and in the evap. fan motor. Melting the ice will make the fridge more efficient, and the fan quiet again.

The slow, easy way to fix is take out all the food, unplug the fridge, leave doors open all day. Ice will melt, and all will be fine ... for a few months, until the ice builds up again. The fast way is here.

Temperature control


The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). The fan may spin, but it if goes too slowly, then it would blow enough cool air into the fridge, especially if it is opened quite frequently.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

ICE MAKER WORKS BUT WILL NOT DISPENSE ICE


That happens because the evaporator system that is supposed to heat up ice cubes to release it is faulty. Have the ice maker evaporator system tested and eventually replaced.

If this is the refrigerator with the digital interface (not a dial knob) then there should be a touch pad for you to press to lower this temperature - otherwise you may have a fridge which is not completely sealed when closed or if you have a ice dispenser the flap covering the ice chute is open
