SOURCE: GE PSS26 NGP Ice maker

Hi Vadim, You should have a steady light showing on the ice maker. If the lead is flashing, it's either a thermistor failure or ejector not home. The reasons why the ejector blades will not home is because of a magnet failure, control board failure or a stalled motor. The feeler arm could also be sticking. The control board contains 2 sensors that are activated by magnets. One magnet is attached to the end of the ejector arm to determine whether the ejector blades are at home. The other is located on the ice sensing arm, lets the control know whether the arm has reached a fully extended position. In a lot of these, I find the magnets broken. I think you can save yourself a lot of trouble by just replacing this ice-maker. Catriver.

Icemaker will not restart

1 Lower the bail wire to turn on the ice maker, and remove the ice bin. Then, using a screwdriver if necessary, remove the ice maker, clean it thoroughly, and then reinstall it.
2If the problem persists,consider removing and replace the entire ice maker and valve. With this type of problem, you can have it repaired, but it's often wiser and less expensive in the long run to replace the unit entirely.

Installed new valve, getting water to valve but ice maker will not cycle or call for water

GE's ice makers are harvestable, means you can manually tell the ice maker to harvest or cycle. Turn ice maker off, went 5 seconds, turn ice maker back on, tap the paddle 3 times (push the paddle inward completely) then it should cycle, may have a delay like 20 second. I hope this helps.

My scotman model sce170a1a.goes into harvest to

That has to be a faulty control wouldn't you think?
The cube size control should only be adjusted to
bring the cubes to the correct shape, the overall
size cannot be adjusted. Try to adjust the cube
size control when the ice machine is in the harvest
cycle, or in the first 10 minutes of the freeze cycle.
1. Open the door and remove the control box
2. Locate the cube size adjustment screw, and to
make fuller cubes, turn the screw clockwise about
1/4 turn. This will make the freezing cycle longer.
3. To shorten the freezing cycle and make cubes
that are not as full, turn the adjustment screw 1/4
turn counterclockwise.
4. After the next freezing cycle, the cubes should
have responded to the adjustment, if another
adjustment is required, do it early in the freeze

Ice maker not dropping ice, the switch is on, and the ice has been in the tray for quite some time now

POWER ON DIAGNOSTICS TEST MODE When the ice maker is first connected to power and the thermistor temperature is 50°F or more, the control will initiate a “Power On” test before entering the freeze cycle. The test will consist of the following sequence:
1)Turn on the motor until it reaches home position
2)Turn on the water valve for 1/2 second
3)Turn on the heater for 1/2 second
4)Verify that the feeler arm was in the “in” and then the “out” position.
5)Verify that the motor was not in the home position and then in the home position.
6)Verify that the motor does not remain on after being turned off.
7)Proceed to the freeze cycle. SERVICE DIAGNOSTICS TEST MODE During the first 15 seconds that power is first applied to the ice maker, the Service Diagnostics Test mode may be entered. The Service Mode is entered by pushing the feeler arm in and out three times within 15 seconds. (only three times). There will be only one fill cycle (5.1 second) in the service diagnostics mode without the waiting period for the mold to “pre-chill”. If the ice maker has already started a harvest cycle and the arm is moving, it may be impossible to start the service mode. (since the NORMAL cycle is already started). While in the “Power On Diagnostics” test mode, the “Service Diagnostic” test mode can be initiated and will override the “Power On Diagnostics” test mode. This ice maker has no replacement parts available and is not intended to be repaired.

Starts to make ice, but goies in reverse cycle before finish

OK. Forget the board. what you hear is the pump running when the unit is off. It sounds like a drain is kinked and the pump is shutting it down for safety.Also when this unit starts it will dump early for a couple of cycles before the ice gets normal size. Run the icemaker and unplug the pump in your water trough to make sure it has a frost pattern all the way thru.(takes 5 min)If not it could be a leak it the sealed system. Remember when you adjust the setting on the board this will take 5 cycles before you see any changes. And 24 hours for more consistant ice.

Water doesnt stop after ice tray is filled

there is a micro switch in the ice maker motor module that shuts power off to the ice-maker water valve when the ice maker is full but i rarely see them go bad this is the easy way to deal with it pull the unit out unplug both the valves and turn the water on a sec if its running in the ice maker with the valves are unplugged then replace the valves if its not replace the ice-maker motor module
