    Phil,
    I know this will sound trite, but you DO realize that water melts at 32.1 degrees, right? So my question is how is your ice maker breaking the laws of physics? Water in your ice maker freezes at 13.9 degrees higher than every place on earth!

    If I were you, I'd hang on to that appliance. It may have an application for super-conduction as well! Wouldn't that be cool? Either that or sell it to Lawrence Livermore for one heck of a profit!

This model Icemaker makes ice by flowing water across a freeze plate. It is located in the top of the unit behind the white cover directly below the ON/OFF/CLEAN switches. After freezing a sheet of ice it releases and slides to the cutting grid. It then drops into the ice bin and begins to melt and the whole process starts over again. The level of ice in the bin is controlled by the high level sensor on the right side of the ice bin. It is a whit tube with two wires coming out of the top. Without this sensor it can overrun the bin capacity. Bottom line this unit does not freeze ice, it only holds it like cooler does.

Why isn't it making ice?


Is ice maker getting water? If not check the solenoid that feeds the icemaker for operation. And also check freezer temp - icemakers will not work at freezer temps higher than 10 degrees.

The green light flashing is a fault code, usually for a no, or long fill situation, GE has nixed this electronic ice maker and returned to one that looks similar but is non electronic, while your ice maker is probably at fault you may actually have a separate issue causing the ice maker to display a fault code, such as a spent water filter, or low water pressure, or even a bad water valve on the fridge it's self.

Freezer too warm


First off, how old is the unit? Without knowing, my advice, and what has worked many times, is to unplug the unit, and turn it upside down. Thats right. Upside down. May take a couple or few people, depending on the weight. What this does, is to have the refrigerant begin running back to the top of the unit. Sometimes it settles in the bottom, and has to have extra help to start moving properly again. If, after about 6 to 24 hours it doesn't seem to have helped, it could be that you have lost the fluid, but that doesn't seem very likely. If you had, it would run consistently at the same warm temperature. If it helps, you may want to repeat the procedure to insure that it is completely free flowing. Cheap fix, if it fixes things. Good luck.

MY GE MONOGRAM ZIS420D FREZZER IS NOT MAING ANY ICE. WHAT SHOULD I DO


check for continuity on the ice maker water fill solenoid valve in the lower rear area of the refrigerator,then remove cover from front of ice maker, and there are 2 gears inside this cover,follow the instructions on the ice maker by this gear and turn it the way it tells you to,this will initiate a manual ice production,you will see the gears turn by themselves after you help turn these gears initially,then you should see water enter from fill tube in the back of the ice maker if the fill tube isnt froze over,if no ice production occurs the ice maker thermostat could be open(bad) or if it makes ice but doesn't push it out the heater below the maker may be open(bad)

Does not make enough ice


Ice machines are rated in pounds per hour. They usually have an arm paddle switch that tells them when they are full or a weight switch that works the same way.

If possible, transfer the produced ice to another container when the machine is full and allow the unit to keep making ice.

This assumes the machine is working properly and that the cubes are solid. (frozen and not watery).

GE ice maker is getting hot


You need to remove the ice maker the function that heats the lower element should last only a few seconds so I believe the ice maker will need to be rebuilt or replaced. Sea Breeze

Ge monogram ice maker makes loud churning noise. Any suggestions


Mine has been doing the same thing and foound it was the pump cavitating (dry). What caused it on my unit is there was buildup of minerals on the sides of the freezer plate so the ice slab wouldn't slide all of the way down onto the grid. When the unit would start the next cycle the water would ramp up over the stuck slab and down into the ice bin and then the pump would start making the noise. A related problem could be the cutter grid not heating so the slabs back up and results in the same issue. Look up into the freezer plate next time it makes the noise and see if there is a slab partially stuck.

No ice


Hi!

Please check 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 Fahrenheit. 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.

Please rate the solution.

Thanks
