Ice despencer opening keeps freezing and wont dispence
I have a tft27pf thats about 13 years old. Have had very little problems. Ice maker went out once. My problem is the Ice dispencer keeps freezing. (When it first begins it looks like snow on the inside of the door at the dispencer opening.) that is the only place that has the snow which turns to ice) everywhere else looks fine in the freezer. I have noticed that the fan behind the ice maker/holder is always running. Thank You Howard

I had a problem like this it could be a few things but mine was some way or another I had a bunch of frozen ice freeze all the moving parts I had to take everything out and melt the ice it works fine now
It can happen that the ice got too thick for the little auger and it snapped off. The other issues arise when the water inlet tube freezes up so no water gets dispenced into the ice maker.Defrost unit to check this out. At least 24hrs.
Check the ice maker first by filling with tap water. Let freeze and if it cycles and dumps the dual water control valve on rear is defective. If ice maker does not cycle then I think you have a problem with the ice maker. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Look for that model number.
Always remember Safty First to turn off power and water supply and only turn them on as needed!!!
I checked water supply it was great and then check the valves (solinoids) and the power and all was good. The next thing I checked was the water from the supply valve to the filter at the same time I put some water in the ice maker to make sure it was working (leave it to make sure it drops the ice). The filter was new but was defective. Water went to the filter but did not return any to the despencer or the ice maker. During the different test I performed I also found that the lines hook to valves that the filter plugged into and since the new filter fixed the problem those valves were ok but could have been the problem therefore I suggest if you have this problem remove the filter and depress the small valve with a small object (like a hollowed out pen) and call for the water to be dispenced. If the water does not spray out then you have another problem...I went threw the whole system to find a bad filter, which I thought in the begining but since the other filter was new I done all of the above.
Although I figured out the problem myself this is a great Web Site. Thank You
I have a GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side refrigerator that makes plenty of ice but will not dipense when the lever is pushed. The dispenser makes not sound when engaged. What do you think the problem is.
Obviously, your ice maker problem could be any number of things... Now that you have water to the ice maker, is the inlet valve opening to allow water to get to the ice maker itself? If it is, is the line that runs between the inlet valve free to allow water to get to the ice maker? if it is, is the ice maker cycling ( meaning the motor rotates the drive mechanism that times the cycle of opening the valve, rotating the mold tray then releasing the ice with a small mold release heater? An ice maker that's ~ 13 years old probably has a removable front cover so that you can see the drive gears.. Also, is the lever that senses the ice cube bin is over full in a position ( normally down) that allows th eice cube maker to cycle? Hopefully, these simple checks will help you trouble shoot the problem and get your icemaker functioning again. Hope this helps !
It would depend on the age of the refrigerator whether repair is economical. If the refrigerator is under ten years old repair it. If it is over ten years old you have to consider how much life is remaining for the refrigerator. Burnt smell source must be located because that is the key to your problem. It could be a simple matter of replacing the switch in the door.
