The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice 
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable.

As far as I know, you do not need to change any wiring.
Just undo the three nuts around the board that you find at the back of the unit. Remove the input wires and push in the plastic tabs holding the board. Then fit the new board and push until you hear the tabs snapping in place. Re-install the wires as they where originally and put the cover back on.
Also make sure that the coils are totally defrosted before starting up the refrigerator after changing the board.

See diagram below:

    I am telling you that you can fit the prugs in one only possible way, and that there is no wiring modification that you need to do, just plug the connector on their respective sockets , you can't go wrong.

You didn't list a make and model but I have seen similar problems in GE refrigerators that have a computer mother board in them. The board gets damaged by possible power surges and since it controls almost everything you get strange operations and temps. Most mother boards and mounted on the back outside of the cabinet under a cover plate about 8 by 12 inches with screws all around the edge.

GE GSS25KGSAWW side by side refrigerator not cooling properly. We pulled the defrost heater out after thawing the freezer and the glass tube is discolored but I get continuity reading across it. Should I...


Since the heater has continuity it is good and does not need to be replaced, the other parts that can make a ref. not defrost are the defrost thermostat or the defrost control (mother) board.

To check the defrost thermostat it must be checked when cold,when cold it should have continuity on it. The defrost thermostat is in the freezer clipped to the TOP of the evaperator coil usually on the right side...this is what it looks likeoldtech2332_122.jpg

If the defrost thermostat has no continuity when cold it is bad and thusly the problem...if it is good and has continuity and already having determined the defrost heater is good..the problem is going to be the motherboard since a part of it is the defrost is the back of the ref.on the left.

The part numbers are

First this refrigerator has very low consumer rating. They are plagued with problems with very poor company backing. But without be able to diagnosis the problem in person I would say it's the mother board. And you may find that GE has a new updated board for your appliance. I would go to and search for your motherboard for your refrigerator and read the reviews. Some people leave some great idea. Plus it you bought this refrigerator brand new you can fight with GE to send you a new board.
