If you have icicles, where are they forming at? If on the front of the ice bucket, then look at the dispenser shoot door is closing all the way. The way to check that is to look into the shoot while holding a flash light (or bright light) up into the dispenser from the front side of door. You should see no light.

Now if you have ice buildup around the inside of bucket, mainly from the ice maker to the bucket then you either have an ice maker that is leaking water or you have a water valve that is not shutting off all the way. Suspect water valve if you have ice buildup within water inlet tube on top of ice maker. Frozen water within tube is good indication that water valve is leaking.

Look inside refrig side of refrig, usually located on right top side of wall, you will find a tag with model number and serial number. Need both to get you the right part number for ice maker or water valve.

GE MONOGRAM Icemaker: ice melts and re-freezes, resulting in a large frozen piece of ice in the bin


Are you sure icicles are coming from ice bin? Remove ice bin and look above it and see if they are coming from ceiling area of freezer. Side by side monograms have had problems with drains causing water to back-up into freezer. This causes icicles from ceiling. If that,s the case you have to purchase the kit for this. This is not an easy fix and can take a couple hours, even for a pro who's done it before.

My GE Arcitia refrigerator ice maker makes ice but sometimes the ice in the bin starts to melt and drips down inside the freezer and makes big icicles.


You have a leaking valve allowing to much water into into the tray. Its fairly easy to change out. It could also be the defrost terminator is allowing it to stay in defrost too long. If it is only the water, yet ice cream stays hard, it is for sure the valve which is about $30.00. It is located in the back down at right corner. just pull off plugs and replace with new one.

This could be a failure of the evaporator fan. Also maybe some ice has formed from water dripping from the ice maker and had now produced an icicle which could be hitting the fan blade of the evaporator motor. Remove back cover to the freezer/fan and check the fan operation while it is running.

Icicle are forming around icemaker port inside of freezer compartment drips seem to come from around inmaker feed water area.


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

The dual water valve (solenoid) that open and let the water from the line when the ice maker calls for it, is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Icemaker leaking causing icicles


Is it overfilling with water? If so, it may be an problem with the fill valve leaking slightly. I say slightly because if it were a large leak, the freezer would have frozen puddles in it. Also check the water chute to be sure the water is all going into the freeze tray. Sometimes they can work loose.

If the seam is leaking, there could be a crack in the housing - not sure that's repairable - sometimes epoxy will work (5 minute, 2 part) but it can be difficult for glue to hold on the type of plastic used in an ise maker housing.
