Your ice maker is overflowing and asking for to mush water to make the ice, you may have a real hi water pressure on your water supply
the is a easy way to adjust that but you are going to have to take
your ice maker out
then using a flat head screw driver remove the white square cover
you will see a gear and a adjustment screw and a lever like this

( - I + )

turn the screw to the minus sing a quarter way and install the ice maker back up.

Or a easier way is just closing the water valve before your fridge a little so it wont have so mush pressure and will not fill your ice maker so fast.

the ice maker feel up buy time not buy water level.

I have a GE Profile pfss6pkx. The ice maker has stopped making ice and makes a clicking sound. Do I need a new ice maker or is there something I should try first?


Hello Dave;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

1.) Press the test button while hold the bottom freeze light switch in. The light switch is in the front top part of the freezer. Observe what happens.

2.) Your ice maker will not work if unless you reach temperature. look in the back of your freezer wall. Is there frost or ice build up?

3.) Do you have ice on the bottom of your freezer section? Then you have a frozen drain, ice built up and can not reach desired temperature.

4.0 You have a non repairable ice maker. Sometime these flex types become jammed with a ice cube in the mold. Check this out.

5.) Your ice maker has a sensor. This may be bad, but I do not think this is the problem.

Get back to me on what you find from the above.

Side by Side GE Refrigerator freezer will not defrost which allows frost/ice to build up. I have cleaned all the areas behind the unit as well as under the unit. After I manuely defrost the freezer it...


The defrost circuit has failed in your fridge. Typical failure is with the defrost heating element. To troubleshoot, you need to remove the remove the contents of your freezer section and remove the freezer back panel to access the evaporator coil. You will need a hair dryer to melt the ice on coil. The heating element is attached to the coil. Use a meter to confirm that the element is bad. Hope this helps you.

My freezer section has a lot of frost crystals built up and the freezer door has stuff dripping onto the side of the door. Its also icing up inside the refrigerator around the ice maker


The frost build up is the result of moisture sublimating out of the materials stored in the freezer. Sublimation, when it get bad appears as freezer burn on meat while bread etc will dry out.

Check the fan, it is probably blocked or operating below CFM rating. Over filling a freezer with product will also cause this problem, you need air to circulate around the items in the freezer for it to operate properly. If this checks then check the door gasket, it should hold a thin sheet of paper without any problem, if the paper falls out you probably should replace the door gasket. Don't forget to check the freezer temperature, it sounds like it is at about 0 +-10F which would be OK in a side by side.

Refridgerator freezer GE


Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.
