    the heating element in the ice maker is most likely the problem. if you here it making noise take your hair dryer and point it at the bottom of the icemaker till the fingers start to move if this works just buy a new icemaker

First, you should have a warranty, check to see if it is still in effect. If expired, then can you describe the sound, and about how often? Also check the freezer temp. it should be 0 deg or below for proper icemaker operation. The colder it is, the more ice is produced in a day. And yes, if the mold heater isn't working, the thing will raise hell when it tries to cycle.

My ge profile ice maker is making ice but dispenses the ice at a very slow and inconsistent rate. Any suggestion on why and solution to fix? Thank you appreciate you taking the time to try and help.

hello, if yours is similar to mine (12 year old side by side profile) it could be the small plastic coller that helps the motor engage with the ice tray auger. Mine has broken three times causing poor performance or no performance. you can order it on line but make sure to look it up for your model so you get the right part. I have attached pics of what the part looks like and (its in the back of the ice tray) what my ice tray looks like.

My GE Profile pfss5pjx/pfsf5pjx refrigerator will not make ice. Everything else is OK. I did replace the inverter last year. Could it be the motherboard?

Check the ice maker itself. Is there water in tray? If not refill valve is not working. If there is ice, in tray possible the tray heater is open and not allowing scooper to push ice out of tray and into collection area.

Our ice maker is making 5-10 cubes per day. Ice

OK, Have a look (if you can) and see if one of the water jets might be broken, or if there might be a defect in the tray. I can't help any further i'm afraid.

The water to the ice maker continues to drip then freezes up.

the loud noise is from the water freezing and hitting the fan blade in the freezer, is the imkr level? have you replace the filter if has one? is it hooked to an R/O water drinking system? if so remove the filter in frig. last thing to do if others questions ok if the shutoff to that water line going to frig is on the bottom of the pipe shut all the way off then turn back on if you have a dispenser and water is really slow to come out this may clear up the low water pressure. If on most units if you do not have appx 35psi it will not allow the valve inside the watervalve to seat and allows water to dribble by

GE Profile making knocking noises at different times

I have the GE profile Refrigerator with ice maker in the refrigerator compartment. Mine was knocking loudly for long periods of time, so I finally removed the icemaker by removing the side panel in the icemaker compartment held with 1 phillips head screw, disconnecting the electrical plug (unclip), pulling the tab of the icemaker down (on top) and sliding it toward the door, thus removing it. There was ice frozen in the motor compartment that was the problem. I let it thaw out and re-installed. All was OK after that..
