Why is there a flashing green light on the icemaker?


First, pull out the ice bin and eyeball the ice maker device behind it. See if the switch is turned on and the green light is lit. If it's blinking, that indicates "ice stuck in tray" and you'll have to take it out and thaw the whole contraption out. It's not that hard: unplug the giant molex connector on the right side and use a small hex wrench to unscrew the obvious screw holding it to the left side of the freezer wall. Then you can firmly pull the device up and out until it pops free from the notches where it sits in the back.
If there's ice stuck in the device, or if it's just not filling properly, let it sit out for a few hours until it warms up. Depending on the humidity conditions in your freezer, something could have frosted over.Check the swing arm on the bottom of the device. Despite the appearance as a bit of useless plastic, it has a magnet attached to an arm inside the main ice maker housing which allows the maker to tell if the arm is extended or pushed part ways in. Ice being make and pushed into the bucket depresses the swing arm when it falls and the arm returns to the extended position via a small spring mounted between it and the unit unless the ice maker is full. This spring has a habit of popping out of a tiny hole and not providing the force needed for the arm to return to "make more ice" position. Check that it pushes back at you if you depress it.
Hopefully one of these items you've checked wasn't working because they're all easy fixes. Reassemble and add it back to the freezer, making sure that the water dispenser in the back of the freezer leads INTO the ice maker, not BELOW it. This would cause a mess. Make sure the thing is plugged in again, and the green light is back on.
If you're impatient about waiting for another ice cycle to start, depress the swing arm three times in a row. This should tell the ice maker to immediately dispense water and start a new cycle.

To clarify, it won't stop making ice? If so,try the following:
Remove the ice maker.
Remove the wire bail.
Remove the front pop off panel, then the panel with the gear on front by removing 3 screws.
Look at the cam that the wire bail goes into. It should have a plastic pin that fits in the switch under it.
Mine had sheared off, so I driled a very small hole where the pin was, and put a finishing nail there. Cut to size. Mine works fine now.

Not making ice


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps , replace the water valve . If it doesn't , replace the icemaker . Your icemaker may have the white flap arm with a spring attached between the arm and bottom of the icemaker . Check that spring , to make sure both ends are seated . Ocassionally , the top of the spring (fitting into the bottom of the icemaker ) comes out , and has to be pushed back into the hole .

Ice maker has stopped making ice.


If you look at the paddle , you'll see a spring just above it . Sometimes the top of that spring slips out of the hole in the housing . Use a smoll screwdriver and try to put it in place . If it seems ok , and the spring arn is pressed against the housing , replace the icemaker with an arm (mechanical) type icemaker . A paddle arm is an electronic (which I do not prefer ) .

Ice maker no longer making ice


Remove the ice bin and check the spring on the white cut off arm . When arm is pushed back , it should spring back foreward .Ocassionally , the top portion of the spring pops out of the hole which will be visibly evident . If so , use a small screwdriver to push back in place . If looks ok , then pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker and wait to see if it dumps . If dumps , then water valve is bad . If doesn't dump , icemaker is bad .

Water but no ice. ice in tray


If you have a "paddle" switch just below the icemaker make sure there is tension on it, i.e. the tension spring might be loose. Make sure the tension spring end is inserted into a tiny hole. Mine wasn't, I did it and ice maker works fine now.

Ice maker "handle" has been pulled out.


you can reinsert the bail arm back into the icemaker by feel or remove the icemaker and reinsert it. I'm going to give you instructions with the ice maker still mounted to the wall. on the back upper right hand corner of you ice maker you will you will feel a square shped hole at the top. right below this hole is our target. you can use a small mirror to locate this area you will see a white oblong hole that the bail arm end will be inserted into. since the icemaker is not working the arm will ahve to be inserted with the arm in the up position. when you insert the arm you need to do so firmly to make sure the arm goes in all the way. if you cant find the corret spot write me back and I'll walk you through removing the i/m to insert teh arm that way.

Thanks for using FixYa Peyton....

Broken ice maker in a GE side by side refrigerator


Most of the time the spring just pops out of the keeper on the ice maker, If you push the feeler arm back and it does not come back out on its own then the spring has poped off. Look where the feeler arm attaches to the ice maker and there is a round spring between the feeler arm and the icemaker housing. There is one hole in the feeler arm ans one on the ice maker housing that the spring pops into. Its usually the spring is out of the hole on the ice maker housing.

Icemaker just stopped making ice


As these ice makers cycle there is an arm that moves up while the ice is being freed from the ice maker. After the ice is dumped into the dispenser bin the arm continues a downward motion. If it encounters ice in the downward travel it shuts the ice maker off. If this arm is locked in the full up position the ice maker is manually shut off. Check this arm and make sure it is not locked in the up position.
