The optimum setting for your fridge is between 38 and 42 degrees F; the freezer, between 0 and 10 degrees.
However in order identify if the problem of you ice maker is the temprerature of the freezer setting or other like ice maker sensor, control board we sugest to lower the tempreruture of the freezer first by 3 degrees live it for 24 hour and check the ice bean if it is not big diference go down another 2 degrees and check again. If you still have low production you need to check the ice maker sensor and also the control board.
Before proceeding with above test you need to remove all ice cubes and clean your ice maker very good so to confirm that their in nothing blocking the ice making procedures.
Thanks for using FixYa

Where is the temperature control panel of my GSS25JETA WW

It is likely there is no actual control panel, but rather a simple dial somewhere located towards the back of the inside the refrigerator compartment that has lettering that states, "warmer/cooler" with arrows that show which direction to turn to change the temperature setting.

What part number is for an

A crankcase heater is an electrical component in a compressor in an air-conditioning system, heat pump system, or chiller system. The crankcase heater is normally on all the time, even when the unit is not running, though temperature sensors and set points may turn it off when not needed. A crankcase heater's sole purpose is to prevent refrigerant migration and mixing with crankcase oil when the unit is off, and to prevent condensation of refrigerant in the crankcase of a compressor. The crankcase heater keeps refrigerant at a temperature higher than the coldest part of the system. A crankcase heater generally has the same electrical symbol as a resistor because it converts electricity directly into heat via electrical resistance. The resistance in the heater coil determines the heat it produces when voltage is applied

Hello R, thank you for your question! Generally speaking it is recommended that the temperature knob is set in the middle for both the refrigerator and freezer compartment for top mount refrigerators. The temperature can be adjusted by moving the knob in small increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize. If you desire a colder temperature, then turn the knob towards COLDER, or for warmer temperature, turn the knob towards COLD. Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures in both compartments. For example, if the refrigerator control is turned to a colder setting, the freezer control may have to be adjusted to a warmer setting. Turning the freezer control will only change the freezer temperature. Hope this proves to be helpful!

WHERE TO LOCATE part number WR55X1002

This part number appears to be missing a digit at the end. Please add a comment with the full part number or the description of the part for additional assistance.

Several shops have the GE temperature sensor (WR55X10025). One vendor is here: . The control board (WR55X10020) is also available from several sites, including . The control panel in black (WR55X10021) is not in stock but available as a special order from .

I hope some of these links may help you. I found Sears Parts Direct listed some similar part numbers as "Order by Technician Only".

My ice dispencer keeps icing up inbetween the botom of the ice holder and insde the chute delivery door.

The door of your refrigerator can not be closed completely so there is an air flow from outside to inside and also from inside to outside. This refrigerator uses more electric for this. The problem can only be solved by finding the hole and closing it.
This problem generally occurs because of the legs of the refrigerator.
Set the legs equally.
So you should find the problem and correct it.
Also this generally happens after cleaning.

I hope it helps.
