Question about GE Freezers

1 Answer

Ice dispenser The flap on the ice and water dispenser on the outside of the door doesn't appear to be working correctly. It doesn't close tightly and there is frost buildup inside on the dispenser chute. I have opened the door and tried operating the ice dispenser, but nothing happens. I am not sure if the flap should actually move or not though. I never noticed when it was working. The water is dispensing normally.

First photo shows paddle assembly that can be purchased you need to got to Sears web site to find part # other wise you will have to buy the whole circuit board assembly hundreds more than the paddle assembly. The circuit board and paddle assembly is removed buy removing screw on inside of door and pulling it out be careful it seems strange but it just pops out. The paddle assembly slides on to the circuit board assembly look close and take your time to slide it off I thought I was going to break mine but did not and save me big money.
Second photo shows tab for water dispensing still there.
Third photo show ice dispensing tab broken and missing.
If you leave the assembly plugged in press the micro switch for the ice dispenser and see if it works most likely the tab has broken and is what hits the switch telling the door to open and ice dispensing screw to push ice to the door. Hope this helps

Walk in freezer solenoid not opening


Many Kenmore side-by-side refrigerators have an ice and water dispenser installed on the outside of the freezer door. The ice dispenser has a flap that opens to allow ice to be released, and closes after dispensing to keep the cold air inside of the freezer. The dispenser flap is opened and closed by a solenoid, that when energized pulls the plunger attached to the flap, opening the door. If the flap stops opening and closing, it is likely due to a faulty solenoid.

Our subzero freezer has a new problem. The cubes


Ice cubes WILL BE slightly moist when they land in the ice bucket. they've just been slightly melted in order to eject from the ice maker. Stop playing with the settings, for starters. put them back to normal, i.e., middle setting, place thermometer in center of freezer, and if you can, one in center of fresh food. monitor after 24 hours, and for the next three days thereafter. freezer temps should be in the -5 - +5°F, sometimes up to 10°, fresh food should be 35-40, sometimes up to 44°at the normal settings. If you are not having temperature issues, see if you notice any frozen drips of water on the underside of icemaker, indicating a possible crack in the ice maker mold, or a faulty water valve. You didnt include your model and serial number, so not knowing the path of the ice shoot, some go out the freezer door, some slide over and get dispensed from the fresh food side. Its possible you may have a problem instead with the flapping door that opens to allow ice cubes to be dispensed, or similar type mechanism. If this door does not seat completely when its closed, it will leak warm air directly into the ice bucket, which would make them slightly moist, also too, this warm air can cause frost and ice to buildup near the warm air source...look for any unusual forms of ice and or frost leading up from the flapping door to the ice bucket. Also look for any gaps in the door gasket when closed, this warm air leak can also cause similar problems, but its most likely with the ice door. could be the door, the spring, the solenoid, or something else i wouldn't know without personal refrigerator inspection.

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Whirlpool GS6NBE side by side ice maker works fine but the ice dispenser doesn't. I can hear a sound and a click when I push it and the dispenser flap works but no ice will come out. Water works fine.


The four prong (flat) plug to the ice maker (in the freezer compartment) in my Whirlpool Gold SbyS Refrigerator; should I be able to test for 120 Volts with a tester, should this plug be 'HOT"?
