Some models have a adjustment, what you need to do is open the freezer and look at the ice maker some times there is a knob or lever that you twist or slide to make the adjustment, but some you have to take the cover off so you can see the ice tray when looking at it you should have an adjustment lever it might be in the center of the tray it will move the metal fins closer or farther apart just adjust them closer together for smaller ice. if your model has no adjustment then all you can do is select the electronic setting for crushed or cube.

Is there a water flow adjustment?


Yes. On most refrigerator ice makers by the front panel on the right hand side there is a small screw adjuster that controls the amount of time that the water solenoid closes to admit water in. Adjusting it changes the size of the ice cubes from small to large or vice versa.

Our ice machine does not make full ice cubes. they are small and not complete, they are full of holes.


The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

How do you change the ice cube size on this model? I cannot locate the ice cube size button anywhere!?


Hello there
Normally
You can't change the shape. or the size of the ice that is produced s It's determined by the manufacturer of the ice maker. but if you have the adjustment feature on your icemaker than pull the front cover off of the icemaker ande their will be a round adjustment wheel with different letters along the side these represent the different sizes of the ice that can be produced
their should also be a diagram on the inside ov the cover that you just took off that will help explain the different settings ok
I hope that this is very helpfull for you.
Best regards Michael

My GE Profile refrig ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why would this happen?


Not enough water is being pumped into the icemaker. The water pressure in the water line coming into the refrigerator may be too low, perhaps due to a blockage somewhere.

Move the refrigerator enough to get behind it. Turn off the water at the small valve which connects the water line from the house plumbing to the tube going into the refrigerator. Get a bucket. Remove the refrigerator water line from the on-off valve (there should be a compresson nut holding it on). Point the incoming water line into the bucket and open the valve. Do you have a good flow of water? If so, either there is a blockage in the tubing within the refrigerator or the water valve at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator is malfunctioning.

U-line water level too full


If you have a icemaker then remove the cover. You will see a screw with a spring around it. Turn that clockwise like your tightening it this will reduce the size of the cube. Also make sure it is leveled. And make sure no corrosion is around the gears on that same plate. This could make the motor run slower and more water comes into it.

I own a GE side by side refrigerator Model GSS22KGPD WW, Serial AG225890. This the third frig of the same model with the same identical problem. The ice cube dispenser on the door only gives crushed ice...


  •  if the cubes that the icemaker makes are full size then... the water valve on the back of the machine is usually the culprit in these cases. it will not close fast enough resulting in a little overflow of water into the auger assembly every time it makes ice. it only takes a little bit of water to settle in the bottom of the pan to cause problems. 
  • if the cubes are smaller than what you would expect then the water is leaking out right before it reaches the icemaker. either from the plastic tube behind the icemaker or the cup on the icemaker that funnels the water into the icemaker.
  • it also could be the timer inside the icemaker leaving the water valve on too long.
  • all these things can be tested on site. the service person must not be very well trained.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
