    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.

How to remove ice maker on ge profile pfss6pkwbss


You would first have to distinguish between if the tray has a crack in it or if the water valve is not closeing which would mean you would need a new water valve. Most all ice makers are held to the freezer wall by 3 1/4" screws you would unscrew these screws and unplug the power connector and remove the ice maker from the unit. Fill the ice tray with water and see if you do have a crack in the tray which is not as common as a water valve allowing to much water to go into the ice tray makeing it overflow. If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply.
Thank you,
Rick

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..

Replaced a water valve but still makes a chugging sound.


Get scouring pad (green pad) from supermarket and remove cutting try. Use pad and cleaning solution to really scrub the evaporator tray until slippery clean. Use forward to backward strokes, not left to right. Clean all surfaces of freezing tray and that should help.
