Mick..not sure if I'm 'that Bob'. Anyway, if the motor doesn't turn, it may have gone bad. Note that most of these motors are geared and you can't turn them from 'your side'. You have nothing to lose by taking out the motor and attempting to disassemble and free it. You can get another. Defrosting is best accomplished by either: removing the inside freezer panel and going at it with a hair dryer (wet + electricity IS dangerous) or shutting it for 2 days and waiting for it all to melt. Freezing is often the result of the door being open too much or bad gaskets/dirty gaskets.

Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.


There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

Ice maker is not dropping ice


there are 2 things that could be problem, 1 is a heater element that heats the bottom of frozen cubes slightly to allow the cubes to be pushed out into the tray by plastic fingers under the cubes and controlled by a motor. best bet would be to get model number of fridge and/or ice maker and look for direct replacement online. There is a company out of Chicago that offers replacements for lots of models. Sorry I dont have their name, but google the results for ice maker for your make/model fridge.

Ice makers have heaters that loosen the cubes when time for harvest. Sounds like the heater on yours is bad, or maybe the ice maker itself is just bad. Most likely will have to replace ice maker.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge. the fan in the freezer blows air through it. there is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control.

Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp. try to chec in the user guide.

Hope helps.

ICE MAKER


to solve the frozen food problem, turn the temp back to 4. this should be the factory recomended setting. the only dispensing crush ice is probably a bad solinoid. you will find this behind the back wall. it engages to lift the thin metal rod on the bottom of the ice bucket to dispense cubed ice. and the ice being frozen in the bucket is probably a bad ice flapper in the door. it's letting warm moist air into the ice bucket that is freezing

Frozen water in ice tray


You do need to thaw the ice maker out completely. I always remove it but that may be more than you are up to. You can also try a hair dryer on it to thaw it out.

GE GSS25LGM Ice maker not dispensing ice


You have one of three things wrong. The auger motor is frozen up, the ice bucket is broken or you need to dump out any ice, run warm water through the entire ice bucket, dry it out and try again with fresh cubes. My guess is the auger motor is frozen. You can buy a vinyl boot that covers the auger motor to prevent moisture buildup and freezing from GE Parts at 1-800-626-2002

Frigidare ice maker making slabs of ice, not cubes


Today, I removed ice maker and auger motor. Found out this morning that water was running down the back of frig. inside, everything in freezer was frozen together. Found this out after removing all food from freezer. When i looked into the ice maker where water enters, that was frozen solid. After thawing and checking everthing. I put it back together in freezer. It is nine oclock now, and I do have cubes. I really can't tell you what I did, except thaw it all out. It's been running for four hours now and it seems to be all right.

Ice maker problems


If the ice bucket is over filling there may be a problem with the ice maker as this should stop making ice when the bucket is full. The ice in the bucket can freeze together just due to the weight of ice cubes . I suggest you check the ice within the bucket is all broken up and not frozen into big lumps
