    For some reason the model number above your post has no ice maker. Could you double check the model number located most times behind the fresh food section door or near floor just above the kick plate. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Sounds like you need to replace the ice maker. The mold heater appears to be defective.The mold heats up prior to a ice dump. I donot believe it is worth repairing

GE FRENCH DOOR REFRIGERATOR DOES NOT MAKE ICE


First thing to check is if the freezer temperature is going down low enough for the ice maker to work - around 10 degrees. The icemaker thermostat will not activate the mechanism (cam motor) unless this requirement is met.

My ge refrigerator icemaker appears to be leaking there is about a 1/2" of ice in the bottom of my freezer


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

GE PDS20MCP - the Ice maker is not making ice. Took out full tray of ice and has not made any since? Is there some reset button or something?


Before you the Water Valver - Shut your water off - disconnect the water line to the from the back of the refrigerator at the top where it goes into the icemaker. I used zip tie or something flexable to see if it would go all the way through to the
tube inside the refrig. If you have obstruction - use your hair dryer
to thaw the ice from inside the refrigerator tube. When the flexable item goes all the way through. Hook back the water line to the icemaker. You will have ice soon. If still not working, replace the inlet water valve at bottom back of refrig.

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

All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.
