Re: GE ice maker problem Model GSH22KGMA

First check your freezer door seal to see if it's held on by numerous screws. If so push on inner panel of freezer door and see if it makes a crunching sound. If so it has moisture in door that froze. You need a new door. GE will send a new set of doors a pay a factory tech to install if in program. Call GE with model and serial to see if in program.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS

it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

The water line was frozen (no ice being made and no water available in the door), so I took everything out of the fridge and freezer, let it all defrost, plugged it back in, now I have water in the door,...

Grab a blow dryer and aim it at the water tube that supplies water to your ice maker. More then likely it is frozen with ice and will need further melting to clear it out so that your ice maker will work again

Stop cooling every 5 days I defrost manual GSS201ETCBB

Does the freezer / fridge door close good? Check the hinges. Also check the seal and the amount of food stuff you may have close to the door. If you have an ice maker make sure you have it secured inside the freezer section.

It sounds like something is keeping the freezer door open or from closing good.

The ice maker is making ice but it doesn't turn to let the ice fall out the chute? It's a GE side by side.

Are you saying that water in ice maker is frozen and it won't turn to drop ice, if so then I/M is bad, if it is dropping ice into the bucket and not droping ice thru the ice shoot on door that is another issure. If that is the case we will need model & serial number of machine.

No ice instead water dripping down into freezer making icicles

If you have icicles, where are they forming at? If on the front of the ice bucket, then look at the dispenser shoot door is closing all the way. The way to check that is to look into the shoot while holding a flash light (or bright light) up into the dispenser from the front side of door. You should see no light.

Now if you have ice buildup around the inside of bucket, mainly from the ice maker to the bucket then you either have an ice maker that is leaking water or you have a water valve that is not shutting off all the way. Suspect water valve if you have ice buildup within water inlet tube on top of ice maker. Frozen water within tube is good indication that water valve is leaking.

Look inside refrig side of refrig, usually located on right top side of wall, you will find a tag with model number and serial number. Need both to get you the right part number for ice maker or water valve.

Bottom of ice maker is frosted up & leads to food getting frost

Sounds like your freezer is pulling outside air into the freezer from the dispenser door or around the door seals. This could be a defrost problem beginning as this is moisture remaining inside the freezer compartment and not being taken out during defrost. So it may be a good idea to look into the back of the freezer and see if there is frost forming also on the rear wall. If yes you will need to manually defrost by unplugging the refrigerator and removing the rear panel in the back of freezer to expose the evaporator coil. If frozen over I want you to defrost with a hair dryer until we can have a look at the defrost heater below these coils. The heater in your model PSS26MRSS has glass around the heating elements and will be easy to see if the element is burned out. If burned out the defrost heater part number WR51X10055 and the defrost thermostat part number WR50X10068 should be replaced. Let me know if you are ready to begin or if this is helpful. If by chance these 2 parts look OK then we will need to look over the main control board for burn marks or signs of heat damage. I'll be here if you need me Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a GE Profile Side by side that is working fine except the ice maker won't dump the frozen ice cubes in the tray. Another party in the house decided it would be a good idea to put water in the tray...

The ice maker is basically frozen. There are two fixes for this condition. If you can transfer all of the food out to another appliance you can unplug and open the doors and let it completely defrost on its own.

the other method is to use a blow dryer. When you have completely defrosted the ice maker and thoroughly dryed it spray the ice cube tray with pam cooking spray which will act as a lubricant. When you are ready to make ice again expect the ice maker to take about 24 hours before the first batch of ice cubes are ejected.
