GE profile performance tfx30ppz ice dispenser not working

I have a tfx30ppz GE Profile Performance refrigerator. It is about 10 years old. The ice dispenser worked fine for about 7 years then we moved to Florida and kept the refrigerator in the garage. It was plugged in but we didn't keep the ice dispenser hooked up. After one and a half years we moved again and are using it with the ice dispenser hooked up but the ice dispenser isn't making ice. Water is getting to the refrigerator from the wall and when I press the ice button on the front of the door it sounds like ice should be coming out-I think that part is working fine. I can pull the hose out of the back of the refrigerator where it feeds the ice dispenser but no water is coming out of it. Also the bar inside the ice maker is all the way down so that should be the proper position. Any suggestions?

    My icemaker started making ice cubes that weren't solid (many of them were actually hollow inside). Now it has quit making ice completely. The water dispenser still works, so the fridge is getting water. Mine is a model TFX30PPZ.

For hollow ice cubes, the issue is lack of water to the ice maker, which is due to either plugged up lines or an old filter. Try a new filter or filter bypass plug (if so equipped) or replacing the lines.

Had the same problem. The water line from the valve to the ice maker was cracked due to heat from the compressor.

My ge profile ice maker is making ice but dispenses the ice at a very slow and inconsistent rate. Any suggestion on why and solution to fix? Thank you appreciate you taking the time to try and help.

hello, if yours is similar to mine (12 year old side by side profile) it could be the small plastic coller that helps the motor engage with the ice tray auger. Mine has broken three times causing poor performance or no performance. you can order it on line but make sure to look it up for your model so you get the right part. I have attached pics of what the part looks like and (its in the back of the ice tray) what my ice tray looks like.

Refrigerator light does not work on ge profile

Check for voltage at the light receptacle, and then try to find the wire from the door switch. There should be a schematic on the back of the fridge. The switch can wear out after ten years.

I have a GE Profile Performance side by side refrigerator and I can no longer get ice through the door. I can get water but the ice and crushed ice just humms . It does not dispense. Any ideas?

The humming you hear is probably coming from the motor not being able to turn the auger. Check to see that the auger is intact. I have seen where they come apart and get jammed up. Here is the part to order in case you find it bad.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

In my GE Performance refrigerator side-by-side Ice is being made, but no water is dispensing. The GE Smartfilter is atleast 5 yrs old. I just replace new filter still not working

If the water stopped before you replaced the filter we have something to consider is that the water control valve on the rear of the back of your Profile and down where the water enters the refrigerator you will see two coils and a set of female plugs attaches to each coil. Most likely the coil for your water dispenser is defective and and the side for the ice has not failed. When telling you the correct model of your profile is needed to give you the replacement part number for your dual water control valve. In a few moments I will show you an example of the part that I am talking about, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE profile side-by-side water dispenser works, no ice though

Ice maker bad or the ice maker water valve mounted on the same bracket as the dispenser is bad. These frigs are prone to bad ice makers after a few years.
