Question about GE Refrigerators
My ice maker doesn't make ice, but the water dispenser in the door works fine. I have tried taking the tray out and putting it back in and also have raised and lowered the ''on/off arm''.

SOURCE: Water not getting to ice tray
Sherman usually (not always) the problem is a frozen delivery spout coming in back of the freezer. look where your ice maker and on the back wall and up behind that you will see the delivery spout area. The water valve may be bad or not opening also but it most likely has 2 solenoids 1 for water in the door and 1 for the ice maker. If you have checked and have the ability turn off the water and reverse the water inlet lines on the water valve. This is just to make sure the water passage is open. Hit the cold water cupplunger then look and see if you have water that cam into the ice maker if not your problem is in the valve or the line to the ice maker. Next hit the same plunger with the water line disconnected if you have water then your problem is in the freezer delivery and needs defrosting and cleaning if its a plastic spout it probably has lime covering it inside and freezes over or the water valve is leaking by a little and refreezing. with the water line off yuo will quickly know if its leaking by. and cover with a towel to prevent a mess if it sprays out when you try the plunger. If it still dosnt work try to check the coil on the water valve both coils should read about the same. If after all this works and you have water everyplace (thats why I said use the towel) the problem is in the ice maker circut. Either it is the main power, the ice maker motor its self, or or most likely its the fill valve switch.In any case if you purchase a new replacement Ice amker head all this will be new.OR Either replace the switch if it checks open or if its loose or there are broken parts. It requires a cam to open and close the switch so it only opens for about 5 to 15 seconds. .Hope this helps you let me know if I need to tell you more. Rate me accordingly please and Good luck.

That on/off arm...you should be able to move it and it will likely make a small click when the switch goes on or off. That arm controls the ice making. There is also a float, is it working freely? It has a switch too. Ultimately, the water is controlled by a solenoid valve. It may be defective. Many of these units are removable to test the switches with a multimeter. Turn off the water and remove to test. Some parts are available...some parts are by the unit only.

In that era they made 2 types of ice makers. If yours is the type that makes half moon ice cubes then it can be repaired.
You have to remove the ice maker. 3 screws and a wire plug. unsnap the front plastic cover. Remove the large plastic gear. You will see 4 screws one on each corner. Remove the screws and lift the plate away from the body. The ice maker must be pointed up.
You will see a small microswitch, on the right side. It has failed.
The switch is universal and most appliance houses will have a replacement.
I have made it sound simple, but it can posse problems since there are a lot of alignment issues in reassembling it. If your handy at this sort of thing you'll be O.K.
If the icemaker is the style that has a large plastic tray that the cubes are formed in, then that is another issue, and should be handled by someone who knows the icemaker.
Some appliance parts houses have someone who can perform these repairs, but unfortunately, the second style when removed, will shut the machine down completely.

Testimonial: "This guy knows his stuff!!!!!"
If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.
Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on.
On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice.
Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
