Freezing Water line


Hello
The problem here is your water valve. It does not shut off all the way and allows very slow water flow through the water line. It is so small that it freezes in the supply tube causing a blockage. When your ice maker calls for water the pressure from the blockage pops the line out causing your leak.
You need to replace your water valve. Dual valve at the back of the fridge.."water inlet valve")

Ge profile fridge side by side makes only 8 ice cubes per day


Good day,
Assuming the temperature in the freezer is normal. 10 degrees or less. then it should be one of the 3 items here.
1. Partially plugged filter.
2. Water valve in the back bottom of the machine failing to open properly.
3. Partially blocked supply line from the house or it's connection fittings which ar more common than the line itself.

As well, if the water fill valve has a small leak on the off cycle, the fill tube running from the outside back of the machine that supplies water to the ice maker cavity may have ice starting to cause a blockage.

The supply inlet to the ice maker is connected (via metal coupling) to the radiator-like-coils in the freezer which are actually hot and they keep the line from freezing. If this coupling is not connected close to a heat source, then the supply line can freeze as you are experiencing.

If possible reroute the supply line out of the freezer area

Has stopped making ice


Good day,
There are many reasons an ice maker will quit. It is important that the freezer be at normal operating temperature. Anything above 10 degrees will cause the ice maker to lock out. That is by design.
So just go step by step. It will get you there.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.

P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

We can't get water to the ice maker on our Kitchaid side-by-side. The water dispenser works properly.


Good day,
The best way to get the ice maker up and running, is to follow a step by step procedure. It is important the freezer be at it's normal temperature. Any temperature above 15 degrees will cause the ice maker to lock out on it's internal thermostat.
As well, you can skip the test on whether your water supply from the house is O.K. if the water in the door is working properly.

Icemaker won't dispense whole cubes, only chopped ice


Hello chitwnchk1
Welcome to Fixya,

You said,It chops ice when dispensing but won't just dispense whole cubes.
Any suggestions on how to fix it?

1. If the cubes dispense, but not whole cubes, there is not a enough water pressure.
2. r there is a restriction in the water line to the ice maker.
3. OR the fridge may not be level.
4. Is there a water filter and has it been Changed in the past 6 months?


Here are 4 reasons mentioned in the repair manual.

Shutoff arm in the off position

Ensure the shutoff arm is down and not in the raised position. If in the raised the position, the ice maker is in the off position and will not cycle.

Faulty Harvest Thermostat

There is a thermostat inside the ice maker that will close when the ice maker mold reaches the proper temperature. If the thermostat is not closing, the ice maker will not cycle.

Freezer To Warm
The ice maker will not cycle if the temperature in the freezer in not below 12 degrees. Ensure proper temperature in freezer.


No water getting to ice maker
The water inlet valve is the control device that allows water to enter the ice maker. It is energized during the last 5-8 seconds of the harvest cycle. During this 5 to 8 second period, there should be 110v across the two wires connected to the valve . If there is power supplied to the valve and the valve does not open to allow water to flow, the valve is defective.

However, if power is being supplied to the valve and water is flowing through it freely, it could be that you water supply line or inlet tube have frozen solid. These can be thawed with warm water or a hair dryer.

Let me know how it goes and what you found!
Thank You , Huuuum
