Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

1 Answer

My ice maker is not filling with water. I get 116 volt at the solenoid plug when it is not connected to the solenoid. But after I connect the plug to the solenoid i only get 1.9 volts. this is with an empty ice maker. I have connected the solenoid directly to a 120 volt source and this will open the solenoid valve and fill the ice maker.

Freezer wont make ice cubes


This is not difficult to troubleshoot.
  • When the arm is up the ice maker is off
  • When the bucket is full the arm is up the maker is off.
  • If the ice maker has a on/off button in off the ice maker is off
  • If the ice maker internal heater fails the cubes will not release and the white plastic ejector arms will be rotated CCW and pressing against the ice in the tray, Normal position for ejector arms is vertical.
  • If water solenoid has failed or water supply not available the ice maker will cycle. The ice tray will be empty,(hard to see if ice tray is empty). Check and replace water fill solenoid.
  • If ice in tray and ejector arms vertical several possibilities.
    • Freezer not cold enough to trip thermostat in ice maker to initiate release cycle.
    • Check freezer temperature <10 Fahrenheit thermostat in ice maker failure
    • Ice maker motor failure,
    • Internal ice maker electrical connections rotary switch failure,
    The best way to check the operation is to manually lock the arm up into the off retention position. Wait a minimum of one hour. Open door and release arm down. Observe the operation of the ice maker. Is after a minute or so the ejector arm does not rotate then it is likely the ice maker has failed internally. If the ejector turns and no ice than you can assume either the water supply is off external from the refrigerator or more likely the water solenoid located behind the bottom back cover has failed. It is also possible that the hose that connects the solenoid to the ice maker has frozen right where it enters the freezer just above the ice maker. You should see ice built up at the entrance where the water fills the tray if this has occurred.

Ice maaker does not fill, I do have water to the door fixture.


Most likely you have a blockage in the line going to the ice trays. You should defrost your freezer and use something like a hair dryer to allow the ice that is blocking the water to become dislodged from the tube. There are YouTube videos that show you how to do this and where to look.

If you found my comment helpful please vote for it, ask any additional questions to this sting and I will do my best to answer, and let us know your results.

Good Luck!

I have a ge fridge. water runs out of water dispenser when filling ice maker


Either there's a pinched wire causing both solenoids to operate at the same time or the wires going to the solenoids are connected to the wrong terminals. You can check for a crossed wire by watching the water flow into the ice maker when you dispense water. If water does not flow into the ice maker then the wires on the solenoids are connected wrong. If water does flow then there's a wire pinched.

Water does not come to ice maker


Is this the reason you replaced the solenoids and ice maker? If so please see suggestions below.
Is the replacement ice maker an exact replacement? Non exact replacements may not work.
Ice maker may not be cycling to call for water, ice maker fill tube may be frozen, bad connection from ice maker (at the ice maker connector) to solenoid, or open wire from ice maker connector to solenoid. Ask for details for the above possibilities.

GE Side by Side Refrigerator model GSS25jfpa cc. No water to icemaker. Replaced the ice maker and the dual solenoid water valves. Still no water to ice maker? Water to door works fine.


if you can reverse the solenoid valve wire connections,then use the door water fill to activate this valve,but not long as it will overfill the icemaker,this will certify that theres water getting up to the icemaker,then it could be the maker itself not activating the icemakers water valve assy to fill the maker

My 642 stopped making ice; I took the and cover/rear plate off so I could see what was happening ice-maker-wise. I saw no water in the maker. I realized a plumber had (possibly; I'm not 100% sure)...


You may have an ice plug frozen in the fill tube, for that use a hair dryer to try and unfreeze the ice plug. Be sure the mechanism is actually working. A clock mechanism rotates a cam on the front of the icemaker that hits a micro switch for a period of tme that operates a water solenoid. That solenoid pulls a plunger valve out of the water line, allowing water to flow up to the icemaker. When the cam pulls off of the microswitch, it interrupts the power to the solenoid. The plunger snaps back in the line due to a spring compressed on the first operation. If that solenoid is not getting power, then the water does not flow. The Ice full bail operates another microswitch that stops the clock mechanism from operating. If the tang on that microswitch is broken, then nothing happens.

You are going to have to determine what part is defective, the solenoid or the ice maker itself. The ice maker is the easiest to replace as it is connected by a plug and a couple of screw clamps holds it in place.

Ice maker won't make ice


The water valve has 2 solenoids one for water and another for ice. The water solenoid is connected to a larger hose than the icemaker solenoid. The water solenoid is working but the Ice maker solenoid might be dead. BUT the ice maker might not be calling for water. It is the ice maker that powers up the solenoid to fill the ice mold. At the end of harvest a tiny copper plate mounted behind the main drive gear rubs across a copper contact. To tweek the amount of water a small screw is mount at the 3 oclock position of the ice maker head.HERE are some repair tips and photos

Ice maker won't work


If you are sure that power is getting to the ice maker unit inside the freezer and you're sure that water is available for the ice maker...
Try these next steps:

Follow the water line for the ice maker back to the ice maker water solenoid
Follow the wiring from the water valve to its source - either a timer or circuit board
Check the timer and/or circuit board for any bad connections, burned connections and power to the board or timer. This arrangement can vary by refrigerator model number...

Water dispenser no longer works.


Where the water supply connects to the Ref there is one water valve but, two solenoids. One for the water and one for the ice maker. An OHM meter will tell you if these solenoids are good.

Solenoids good;
Set the meter to volts and check if power is getting to the water solenoid while pressing the water despensor. No power, bad switch.

Ice maker hooked up for the first time doesn't work.


Hi, The storage is usually on the back fridge wall near bottom. Your answer indicates the demand solenoid is not operating. You will need to check wiring connection at the solenoid, and at the ice maker plug. Best of luck.
