We had a service tech service our fridge for the same problem. Although the ice that was dispensed was not as fine as crushed ice, mainly chunks. In any case, he said this is a known problem and is typically resolved by ensuring the freezer temp is not set at the maximum setting. Ours is currently now set at 3 bars and is producing cubes. Not sure if reducing the temp was the ultimate fix as he also replaced the ice maker.

There is no forced defrost entry for your refrig. Yours has a ADC board in the upper right corner of the control area in the refrig section. The only way to initate defrost is jump the terminals on the board. Look at the wiring diagram closely before making the jump. The board energizes the heater thru the neutral side so make sure you dont jump line to this. I believe you jump L2 to Def

GE 17.2 freezer on top fridge on bottom. Freezer is cold, but fridge is warm. Help!


Is there any frost buildup on the rear panel inside the freezer? If so you have a defrost problem of a bad defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer/ control board. If no frost then you probably have a clogged defrost drain. Remove the rear panel to access drain hole.

We accidentally left the freezer door just barely open overnight. The freezer started to thaw somewhat, but we caught the problem before anything had to be thrown out. In other words, there wasn't a lot...


yes ice formed in the bottom of the ice bin locking the auger from turning to dispense ice. Defrost the ice bin and wipe clear of any left over water from the melt.

We have a Hotpoint refrigerator/frezzer. It intermittently makes fan noises and stops making ice. Where do we find someone who can service the unit?


I hope your microwave doesn't make ice !!!
Are you in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). If not I can tell you what is happening.
All fridges have a timer so that the freezer goes thru a defrosting mode for about 3hrs
In that 3hrs there are hearter in the walls of the freezer to melt the ice.
As the ice melts , there is a drain from the back of your freezer down to the bottom of the fridge is a vaporator tray. The hose could be blocked and the water can't drain and after the defrost mode all that water changes to ice and it stops the fan
Take the time to make sure that hose is fre from abstruction

Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

It sounds like your defrost control timer is working, but your defrost heater is most likely burnt out. It is a part number WR51X443
and is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. Turning the refrig off for 24 hours helped melt some of the accumulated frost, but not all. You will have to take that back cover off inside the freezer and melt all the frost with a hair blower, replace the defrost heater and reassemble.

Icemaker leaks into freezer compartment


MDG,
Sometimes the drainage inlet for the defrost can get clogged and then the frost has no place to go (usually an evaporator pan at the base of the fridge) have you ever felt the side walls or within the fridge and it was warm? When it is working the tray heats to rid the fridge of the frost. The DYI solution is simple but can be frustrating. If the freezer is on top and you can remove the drip tray and the contents for that matter and see the inlet all the way in the back most likely covered in ice, turn of the fridge throw a bunch of towels togeter with sponges and buckets and le the fridge thaw out for the day sopping out all of the water. If you can get to the inlet squirk some hot water with a turkey baster down into the hole and listen for the flow out into the bottom into the tray. Take the back off of the fridge (or access panel at the botom) to see the evap tray. If it is totally dry and looks like it has been for a while then it hasn't been draining. Usually unless a waterline is leaking or broken ice formation is a faulty defrost, huge amounts of continuous water is a leaking suply line. The frustraing part of the DYI solution is if you don't get the blockage free from the line (usually a clear tubing that emties into the evaoprator tray) and put everything back together and restock the fridge about a week later it will start icing up again.

Superba ice maker stopped working, door water still dispensing


Use a cup of water and just fill the ice cube maker with enough water for the first batch and the sensor will then begin making ice again.
My ice cube maker stopped working after I changed the filter. After reading countless posts about wiring and defrosting and using a blowdryer into the fill line I emptied my freezer and fridge, then unplugged it. I got no results after two days. I finally just put some water in the ice cube maker (the metal ice cube tray below the white plastic fingers that forms the cubes) plugged it back in and closed the door for a few hours and it worked. I wonder if I needed to defrost the unit at all. It was working before I changed the filter, then the filter was full and stopped water from flowing (or decreased the flow dramatically anyway).
Good Luck
