I have a GE Model TPX24BRBB WW refrigerator. The ice maker would notstop making ice unless the bale arm was lifted clear up to the offposition. I was advised that it could not be fixed and to replace it.The original IM had a GE part #WR30X328 I was sent the new one (part#WR30X10061). Everything seems to fit except the the fill cup that camewith the IM is for a side fill or can be moved for rear fill. Whenpositioned for rear fill, the fill tube would have to come out of theback wall between the mounting screws. My fill tube comes out to theright of the RH mounting screw. What am I missing? Thanks, edgilb

Re: GE ice maker
I carry this ice maker on my truck and they are supposed to come with a universal cup so it could be mounted either way. See if you can pull off the cup of the old one and switch it to the new one. If not have them send you another ice maker because that one is not right.

There are three ways.
1. Shut water off to the fridge via plumbing valve.
2. Lift arm on ice maker or use on/off switch depending on ice maker model.
3. Unplug ice maker wiring harness. It won't be able to call for water.
It depends on why you want the water off. A make and model of the fridge would help so I can give you a more specific answer.
On the right side of the ice maker there is a long metal lever called a "bale". Carefully and slowly lift that lever to the 90 degree position. You should feel a catch and the bale will remain in that position. That shuts off the ice maker operation.
This is a quick guess. Look at the top of the ice bin. Many refrigerators stop the ice maker with a wire bale that rides up on the ice. Raise the bale and it should latch in place above the ice and shut off the icemaker.
There is trick to putting the ice bale arm back on unless the water cup where the water comes into freezer has the round opening broken that holds the bale arm Click Here=> 628356 Water Fill Cup
Also the video clip from Parts Select will show you the way to do this way of reinstalling the bale arm. If movie does load below then click HERE Telling you how in words would not be as simple as the instructions given in the movie. Thumps up to Parts Select on that tutorial!

On the ice makers on refridgerators unless the ice in the bucket is high enough to raise the arm on the icemaker it will not shut off. Most people lift the arm up when they see the bucket full. I have the side by side Whirlpool model and on mine if I don't raise the arm the ice will fall out the bucket before it will raise the arm high enough.
There is an adjustment for the "harvest" bar (The bar you lifted up).
That bar you are lifting up tells the ice-maker that the cubes have fallen into the ice storage and starts the ice-making cycle over.
It is also the Limit switch for the ice level in the storage container ... if it stays up for preset time determined by the manufacturer it stops making ice... most all ice-machines use the same devices. they vary little in design.
Sometimes you can just gently bend the bar down to the point where it turns-off the machine at the level you want ... unless you can get to the adjustment hinge you can adust it there.
For the fact it goes off when you lift it all the way up tells me the harvest switch is turning the ice-maker off.
