Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

I think my ice maker is broken. The manual shows the arm either at a right angle to the maker, which is stop, or right next to it, which is on, but my arm seems to be stuck at a 45 degree angle. Can I force it down without breaking it?

How do I get the ice maker to produce for the first time


Is the arm that gets pushed up by the ice cubes (in order to stop making ice when it is full) in the down position? it is able to be pushed up and locked so that the icemaker doesn't make at ice and may need to be pushed down.

Kenmore 106.55242400 ice maker knocking noise


most likely you need a new ice maker,one thing that could do this is the white arms that spin around when dumping the ice,sometimes one of the arms bend and jam the ice maker and you'll hear that knocking soundthe arm gets bent,the ice cube gets stuck because the arm can't push it out,,it stops the motor from spinning through it's full cycle and damages it but this is just a guess from something i've seen happen but most likely you need a new ice maker,one other i've seen is the metal arm that you can lift up to shut off the ice maker gets knocked out of the hole it slides into.if you pop off the white cover and get a jumper wire and stick it into the h and t holes you can jump start the ice maker.http://appliantology.org/gallery/image/659-manual-harvest-on-a-whirlpool-modular-ice-maker/

Ice maker keeps making ice, does not stop when bin is full


the ice maker should have what is called a bail arm that is what measures the ice in bin if there is one it should only move up and down if it moves any other direction the bail arm post could be broken

I have a Zub Zero 650 refrigerator (top) freezer (bottom) that is 10 years old. The ice maker has a grey plastic arm to the upper right. Ours appears to be broken off at one end. On one side of this...


Yes, they should look the same. This bracket helps to turn the ice maker off to prevent over flow. Guessing by the age I believe you have a 650 or a 650-2. The part number for this is 7014671 and it is called a ice maker rudder arm. Go to http://subzero.com/locator/index.aspx to locate your local parts supplier. If you look inside the door jamb you will see your model and serial number. Give this to the parts house to ensure you get the proper arm.

Ice maker stopped


Hi!
Please check these:
It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:
If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.
If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.
In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary.
The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Broken ice maker in a GE side by side refrigerator


Most of the time the spring just pops out of the keeper on the ice maker, If you push the feeler arm back and it does not come back out on its own then the spring has poped off. Look where the feeler arm attaches to the ice maker and there is a round spring between the feeler arm and the icemaker housing. There is one hole in the feeler arm ans one on the ice maker housing that the spring pops into. Its usually the spring is out of the hole on the ice maker housing.

GE PSS26 NGP Ice maker


Hi Vadim, You should have a steady light showing on the ice maker. If the lead is flashing, it's either a thermistor failure or ejector not home. The reasons why the ejector blades will not home is because of a magnet failure, control board failure or a stalled motor. The feeler arm could also be sticking. The control board contains 2 sensors that are activated by magnets. One magnet is attached to the end of the ejector arm to determine whether the ejector blades are at home. The other is located on the ice sensing arm, lets the control know whether the arm has reached a fully extended position. In a lot of these, I find the magnets broken. I think you can save yourself a lot of trouble by just replacing this ice-maker. Catriver.
