Question about GE Heating & Cooling

Open Question

My GE Monogram ZDIS15CSS ice maker fills the bin and pumps water over the plate to produce ice but it does not seem to be cooling enough to make ice. The fan is running and I cleaned the coil.

The temp in the bin is 78 and the coil 75. Anything I can look at or is a service call needed?

The pump probably has some calcium/lime buildup on the shaft and is seized up. You need to free it up and then add in some ice machine cleaner and go by package directions. I would use Nickel-guard.
This machine has a water valve as you now that fills the reservoir with water. The pump continually pours the water over the evaporation plate and a slab of ice forms. When the thickness is right the gas is redirected using a hot gas solenoid to toss hot condenser gas briefly through the evaporation plate and loosen the slab. The slab slides down onto a wire grid and gets cut into cubes. While you are at it give the condenser coils a good vacuuming. A new pump is $200 bucks. Let the ice machine cleaner soak the impeller overnight. Might be enough to get her up and running again.

Ice maker leaks water into ice bin


Some things I have seen that causes this issue:
A. Plug not sealing properly in the bottom of the water reservoir
B. An issue dealing with the circulation pump. Maybe splashing water out of the reservoir while running due to crack in pump housing, especially around impeller, or hose that feeds water from recirculation pump to cold plate has a crack/split/loose connection.

check hot gas valve to make sure it is not bypassing when in freeze mode this will not let the evaporator plate get cold enough. need to check refrigerant pressers.

My GE Monagram Ice maker is not making ice. I have cleaned with approved cleaner for the clean cycle and it does not seem to help. The water just seems to flow over the freeze plate and periodically a thin...


I don't have the service manual for this model without having to purchase one but I have a link to Whirlpool Service Manuals which is very much the same when it comes to diagnostics. There are several reasons that may cause this problem as you described. They are water control valve sticking causing warm water to continue to flow over freeze plate and stopping ice production. A defective condenser fan or a very dirty condenser coil.

Making good ice. Could be cube size control. Could be a weak compressor. Also these machines are household and meant to run in air conditioned space.

Does this ice maker need a pump or is it built in zdis15css


It has a circulation pump that continuosly supplys water over a plate that forms a slab of ice on it. As the slab gets thicker the resistance values change in the ice and the machine opens a hot gas solenoid operated valve which floods the plate with heat from the condenser below. This makes the slab slide down the shoot onto a wire grid that is heated. The slab is cut into tiny little cubes and drops off into the ice bin. So yes the machine has a circulator pump. Ever so often you need to put it into the clean mode and add some nickleguard or ice machine cleaner to keep the pump and its components all happy happy.

Ge monogram ice maker makes loud churning noise. Any suggestions


Mine has been doing the same thing and foound it was the pump cavitating (dry). What caused it on my unit is there was buildup of minerals on the sides of the freezer plate so the ice slab wouldn't slide all of the way down onto the grid. When the unit would start the next cycle the water would ramp up over the stuck slab and down into the ice bin and then the pump would start making the noise. A related problem could be the cutter grid not heating so the slabs back up and results in the same issue. Look up into the freezer plate next time it makes the noise and see if there is a slab partially stuck.

GE Monogram Ice Maker makes ice, unit doesn't cool enough


This model Icemaker makes ice by flowing water across a freeze plate. It is located in the top of the unit behind the white cover directly below the ON/OFF/CLEAN switches. After freezing a sheet of ice it releases and slides to the cutting grid. It then drops into the ice bin and begins to melt and the whole process starts over again. The level of ice in the bin is controlled by the high level sensor on the right side of the ice bin. It is a whit tube with two wires coming out of the top. Without this sensor it can overrun the bin capacity. Bottom line this unit does not freeze ice, it only holds it like cooler does.

GE Monogram ZISS480DMCS Ice Maker Problem


Check and make sure that the float arm in the ice bin is down and able to swing. This arm should be down until the bin is full of ice which would raise the arm and stop any water flow until ice cubes are removed, and allows the arm to drop again to start the cycle all over again, to replace the ice that was used. The arm has a spot to snap in and be held where it would be in a position all the way raised, to allow the bin to come out for cleaning or all of the ice removal from the bin, such as to dump the ice in a cooler. The arm should be gently pulled down to hang freely and will slowly raise on its own as the bin fills with ice.

Have you checked to assure the long narrow hose that comes from the upper lback left corner is attached both on top and inside the water tray? This drove me nuts for 3 hours.
