  • Anonymous May 20, 2009

    i just got this refrigerator about 2 months ago- i had not moved in yet- so i figured it might be sensing that the door wasn't being opened very often or something.
    i moved in about a week ago- and it still only makes about a tray or maybe 2 in a day .
    what should i do/ The manual said to adjust the freezer temp- so i tried that- it is set at -2.
    thank you so much for helping me1

The ice maker has a temperature sensor inside that lets the ice maker know its time to drop the ice and refill with water. That could be the problem or the water control valve for the ice maker is not opening when its called to refill the trays. I will try to help you, Sea Breeze

    GE side-by-side: freezer making grinding noise. Husband unplugged and removed icemaker. What was the problem and can I fix it myself?


    did it sound like someone snoring in your freezer? that is your icemaker trying to eject cubes, and that noise in and of itself, is nothing to be worried about, that is normal. however, if your icemaker was failing to produce ice, when your husband removed the icemaker, was it near overflowing with ice, or did it look like it just had what would be a normal amount, i.e., the ice in the mold was little more than helfway. if it seemed like it was a normal amount of ice, then the heater on the bottom of the icemaker failed, replace the icemaker. if you had an abundance of ice in the icemaker, you may have a problem with either your water vavle solenoid not closing completely, or the icemaker motor itself is slow, causing the valve to be open too long. without checking it personally, i cant advise either way

    Icemaker not making ice


    Sounds like you need to replace the ice maker. The mold heater appears to be defective.The mold heats up prior to a ice dump. I donot believe it is worth repairing

    All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


    If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.

    I own a GE side by side refrigerator Model GSS22KGPD WW, Serial AG225890. This the third frig of the same model with the same identical problem. The ice cube dispenser on the door only gives crushed ice...


    •  if the cubes that the icemaker makes are full size then... the water valve on the back of the machine is usually the culprit in these cases. it will not close fast enough resulting in a little overflow of water into the auger assembly every time it makes ice. it only takes a little bit of water to settle in the bottom of the pan to cause problems. 
    • if the cubes are smaller than what you would expect then the water is leaking out right before it reaches the icemaker. either from the plastic tube behind the icemaker or the cup on the icemaker that funnels the water into the icemaker.
    • it also could be the timer inside the icemaker leaving the water valve on too long.
    • all these things can be tested on site. the service person must not be very well trained.
    if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
