    I think your ice dispensor door is leaking air and has frosted up the bottom of the ice container. It is very difficult to remove the ice maker in this condition. All you can do is push the button in on the right side of the ice container and keep tugging upward. It will eventually come loose. As far as the ice door, either the ice door insulation is worn or the door mold plastic tabs have broken that hold the ice door pin in place. If its the insulation on the ice door that is worn just replace the ice door only. If its the door mold that is broken, you will have to install a field repair freezer door repair kit.

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side ...ice maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser


Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

Parts inside my ice maker in the door fell out cant figure out how to get the front panel off the ice and water maker


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This removes all power to the door so the refrig can still run while working on the dispensor . Use a butter knife slipped down between the lower portion of the dispensor cover and the main dispensor from the inside and press down . There are 2 plastic tabs holding the lower cover in place . After the lower portion is unclipped , lift upwards to remove the top portion . Disconnect the plug to the dispensor front . There are 3 or 4 screws holding the white " body " in place , so remove them and it should slide out a little ways to allow access to the inner workings .

No water in automatic ice maker, therefore no ice cubes.


Do you get water at the front dispensor, if present? If not check the refrigerator water filter. If you have an RO system feeding filtered water to the fridge, check it's filter. Also there is a solenoid that lets water into the ice cube maker, have a professional check it to make sure its working correctly. Lastly I have had to replace the entire ice cube maker, sometimes they do fail. Replacements can be found fairly easy on the internet.

GE REFRIGERATOR'S ICE DISPENSOR PROBLEM


CAN U TELL ME WHAT YOU DID TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. I AM NOW EXPERIENCING THAT EXACT PROB!

The ice maker stopped making ice. Any solutions?


A lot of filters ( not all ) do not even access the ice maker . Only the water dispensor . If your water dispensor is working fine , then you need to replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . This is the piece the wall water line connects to . It is called a dual valve because there are 2 coils on the valve . 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispensor .

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.


Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

Ice maker door does not close all the way and the ice maker switch that releases the ice when press does not work all the time


Sounds like your saying that the ice dispensor flap is not closing completely which will cause frost on the inside shoot and on the ice bucket . Could be because of a broken guide ( clear plastic piece attached to the ice dispensor arm ) . Need brand and model number to help .

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze
