Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a ESS23XGSBB Ge Eterna series 2 years old. Ice maker is always frosted over to where cubed ice is crushed. I have emptied the ice tray and cleaned it out along with the ice shoot. Next day it is frosted over again
Try to take some ice from the dispenser. Remove the glass and open the freezer door to look down inside the dispenser chute and see if the trap door has re-closed. If it remains open warm, humid air will enter the ice bucket and gradually freeze the cubes together. Trap door remaining open is generally caused by a rusted electrical coil which pulls the door open electrically then sticks, unable to re-close. Coil is located behind the panel that operates the dispenser. Relatively easily accessible.

yes and no ...... there is no real adjustment for it but you may have a sticking solenoid .....OK in the back of the unit remove the hopper and you will see the solenoid loop (white Plastic) in the back wall this need to pull up in order for the unit to dispense cubes. it maybe sticking ....now by moving it up and down a few times with your hand to make sure it is free....next dump all the ice out of the hopper and check the arm thathat sticks out the back of the hopper make sure it is not frozen after that reassby and place a few cubes back in the hopper to see if it is working..Let me know

I would contact Hotpoint direct for this one. It sounds like a design fault to me.
What I think may be going on is that the cubes are melting too much, then refreezing lower down.
Set your freezer to -18, and the fridge to +2 and see if that changes things any.
Check seals in that area. Where is the moisture coming from to generate the frosting? - Is the location high in humidity?

yea! I have been without cubes for 2 years. I slid out the tray, found the lever in the back where the rod went in, pulled it down, reinserted the ice tray, and IT WORKED! At first I thought I broke the lever, because I had to hold it down with a knife while I was inserting the tray, but it just must have been stuck. I am soooo happy!

Kindly check it could be because of following reasons :
Temperature must be 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) or colder to work properly.
The ice maker will produce between 2.5 to 4.0 pounds of ice a day depending on your model. Side-by-side models come with a large ice bucket and it may take up to three days to fill this container.
Open valve completely.
Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Please feel free to contact for further assistance

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid
