Question about GE Monogram ZDI15C Automatic Icemaker

1 Answer

GE ice maker is getting hot

It seems that our ice maker started to produce a lot more heat than it used to. I have checked any lint build up and I clean the unit on a regular basis. The copper pipes which run through the air cooling unit are pretty hot. Ever since this happened the unit produces substantially less ice. Any suggestions?

    is there a way to check the freon level?

    You might be low in freon, capacitor might not be working correctly

You need to remove the ice maker the function that heats the lower element should last only a few seconds so I believe the ice maker will need to be rebuilt or replaced. Sea Breeze

    Could tell me if this is only an Ice Mker model ZDI15C If so then the control board may be the reason for this happening

    If the complete ice maker is not working properly I need you to answer a few questions like is the fan working properly near the compressor, is the compressor too hot to the touch. If so I need you to do a few thing to see if I can get you going, Thanks, Sea Breeze

    Yes you will need a Supco BPV31* Piercing Valve and a set of guages. Sea Breeeze

    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

    My GE Monogram side by side built in refrigerator will not freeze ice or keep food frozen. It stays just under the freezing temperature. The refrigerator portion seems to work. Can anyone help?


    its possible that its either short of gas or the little fan motor in frezzer/fridge is not working,but if its only making ice now and then its sounds like a gas shortage

    Ice maker not making ice will dispense water but it is not making ice.


    Check the ice maker at the top where the water comes out to see if it's frozen. Sometimes ice builds up and clogs the opening. If so, carefully melt with a blow dryer on low heat. Be sure not to get it wet.

    I have a GE refrigerator model # GSH25KGMB WW. It is a side by side with an ice maker and water dispenser. We have had it for about 9 years now. The ice maker hasn't been working right for about 6 or 7...


    you could have several problems.

    Since you mentioned your ice maker not working right - first check to see if your ice maker is hot (be carefull it can burn you if it is hot) - it is possible for an ice maker to hang in the heat cycle of the cycle producing excessive heat in the freezer. If this is the case unplug the ice maker and/ or just replace it.

    The refrigerator gets it cold from the freezer so if the freezer is not working right, you'll soon notice it in the refrigerator side.

    You can also check to make sure the evaporator fan motor is running(in the freezer) and the condenser motor(at the compressor) as well.

    Also check the back panel of the freezer for excessive frost build up.

    Ok.. Just a bit of info for you if you have to sometime in the future do a parts search. This unit is the same as the Hotpoint HSS25GFTWW

    Now for the icemaker problem.

    When ice makers start making less ice it is usually a sign of some other problem.
    1. Ice build up on the evaporator coils in the back of the freezer.
    2. A slow or not functioning evaporator fan.
    3. Dirty condensor coils in the back or the unit
    4. A condensor fan that is running slow or not turning.
    5. An automatic defrosting problem (most common problem)

    If you have ice cream you probably notice that it is softer than usual. Or things in the freezer just are not as stiff as they usually are. When you notice this the freezer is warming up but the fresh food compartment is fine.

    1st.. check to make sure the control panel settings are set to "0" for the freezer and "37" for the fresh food compartment.

    2nd.. look for any obvious signs of ling build up in the bottom and back of the unit.

    3rd .. Listen to the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment.
    a. must be running full speed
    b. should not sound like it is striking anything

    4th.. Is the chassis near the doors hot to the touch? (should be warm not hot)
    a. if hot to the touch the condensor is not getting rid of the heat due to lint build up, or slow / stuck / failed condensor fan.

    5th.. there is always the very rare chance that there is an actual problem in the ice maker. (thermostat)

    Ice maker makes ice, but not nearly as much as it used to. What do you suggest. Water flow out dispenser is fine. Filter has been replaced.


    I would suggest making sure the coils under the refrig are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also , letting the ice build up so it gets closer to the bottom of the ice maker (coldness of the ice will help keep the ice maker cold ) will result in ice maker cycling more often (making ice) .

    Ice building up in the bottom of the freezer


    The water supply line is leaking.Put some paper towels down after you clean up and check real often to back track where leak is coming from,maybe your ice maker is over flowing with water.When was the last time you replaced your water filter?Could be backing up,just replaced mine,it was leaking under the fridge,mine is a Sear's Kenmore,ordered a filter from Sear's,Cost me 50 buck's,My filter is at the bottom front,your's may be inside the freezer.

    Freezer running, ice maker not producing, hot in middle divder.


    The dividing section should be warm, to keep unit from sweating. (by design). Cleaning under the refrigerator was what cooled it down. You cleaned the condenser. The condenser allows the refrigerent to cool down. When it was dirty, the condenser could not get enough air to cool down.
