SOURCE: Ice Maker

Charles, these models have a habit of the inlet tube freezing over. Make sure the black tube feeding the trough is clear. You may want to disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through it. I use hot water in a baster to clear them all the time. Another thing is to check the optics. When opening the freezer door the red optic light on the right should flash 2x with a pause repeatedly. When you close the left hand emitter flapper the light should stay on. If it does this your optics are good. Because of these optics the new ice-maker has to be jumped started into a cycle. Once started you can monitor the fill. Catriver..post back.

There are instructions available to repair this problem at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com. They also sell the part needed to make the repair. Common problem on these refrigerators that were made in about 2005 or later and have the ice bin bucket on the door.

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    SOURCE: GE refrigerator, ice melts in ice bin

    Since your refrig is cooling , I would replace the # 4 AND # 5 thermistors . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

    NOTE: This
    is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
    But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
    Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
    This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
    The ref. temp should be about 33-35
    The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
    The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
    The icemaker is 110v
    See if water is in icemaker.
    Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
    If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
    attaches to water line out of wall)
    If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
    If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
    I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
    It moves air to the ref from the freezer
    Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
    Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
    the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
    Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
    is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
    Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
    There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
    Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info

    See if water is in icemaker.
    Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
    If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
    attaches to water line out of wall)
    If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
    If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
    I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
    It moves air to the ref from the freezer
    Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
    Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
    the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
    Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
    is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
    Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
    There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
    Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
    Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
    Clean condenser coils underneath
    WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
    THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
    AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
    OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
    REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
    RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
    TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
    OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

    Plhs269zdbb water melted in the ice maker teeth. how do i defrost


    NOTE: This
    is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
    But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
    Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
    This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
    The ref. temp should be about 33-35
    The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
    The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
    The icemaker is 110v
    See if water is in icemaker.
    Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
    If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
    attaches to water line out of wall)
