Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

GE Profile Performance ice maker not making ice. I see that there is another leak in one of the hoses or the valve. I have all ready changed the valve and repaired hoses in the past and am getting tired of doing this. Is there a way I can by'pass everything and go direct to the ice maker. Do I need a special valve or is the valve in the ice maker and what about wiring. Thank You for taking the time to answer.

Ice Maker leaks water inside the freezer


I see you said you looked and the water valve is off but the only that I know of this happening is a defective water control valve. Like a dripping faucet that when off slowly drips until the ice forms and then one the ice maker dumps ice and tries to refill the water goes in every direction. Unplug water valve to confirm what I am saying, Tell me if it continues to leak. Sea Breeze

Icemaker leaking


Check two things.

1: see if you have ice buildup in the water inlet tube above ice maker, if you do chance are the water valve is bad, if not,

2: see if you have icicles hanging from bottom of ice maker, if you do you have a bad ice maker.

Either way, will need full model number and serial number both to get you the right part numbers for parts.

Me GE Profile PSC23M Side by side ice maker quit making ice and water was on floor behind refrig. Is a water line frozen or clogged or do I have to replace ice maker?


It sounds like you just have a leak at the back. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser and watch on the back for where the water may be leaking before it gets up to the ice maker.

We have a GE Profile refrig, circa 1995. The ice


If you are sure it is caused by the ice maker or if it is not it can be fixed. The only way an ice maker would leak like that is if ice is blocking the inlet tube and when the water comes on the water is spewed in a different direction than the ice maker. Most times this is caused by a slow leak in the water control valve for the ice maker side at the rear of the refrigerator. You can stop the problem by melting the ice in the fill tube with a hair dryer and keeping an eye on it until you see ice beginning to build up there again. That would indicate a slow leak in the water control valve that is not closing all the way when off. The other reason for large pools of ice in the freezer is a frozen over defrost condensate drain behind the cover in the rear of the freezer and would require you to unplug power and remove the rear panel. I will try to get some photos and a link shortly that covers that problem a lot more in just a few minutes. Sea Breeze

How do i turn off the ice maker on a ge profile. thereis a bad leak from the hose in the back. can i just turn off the ice maker to stop the water flow?


You can lift the lever in the ice hopper to turn off the unit, or simply unplug the electrical connection to the ice maker inside the fridge. If your leak is in the line between the house supply line and the valve on the icemaker, turning it off will not solve your troubles. If that is the case, you can turn off the supply line valve.

Ice maker tube freezing up


  • change the water valve on the back of the machine.
  •  the water valve is slowly leaking water up to the icemaker where it freezes and builds up ice, blocking the water flow.

GE profile performance tfx30ppz ice dispenser not working


Had the same problem. The water line from the valve to the ice maker was cracked due to heat from the compressor.
