The water dispenser and ice maker side run separate sides of the water control valve. Fill ice maker with tap water and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then does not refill then the water control valve is the problem. I will be back soon with a photo and some links, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Sounds like your water valve may need changing, and has filled up with sediment, slowing the water flow.

Ge profile arctica side by side- ice maker and water dispenser not working..have already replaced the water filter


The water dispenser and the icemaker both operate on different soleniods on the water valve so the chances of a bad valve are slim. I would assume you issue is in your water supply. The easiest thing you could try first would be to check your saddle valve that taps into your main water line to supply the ref. They are known for calcium deposits which obstruct the flow of water. This issue is IDed by very slow water pressure through th door. If its gunked your icemaker fill tube may also be frozen.

Arctica won't make ice; ice was frozen solid yesterday. After removing, it won't make any more ice cubes.


As long as the ice trays are filling with water, it's not actually the function of the ice maker to make ice. Ice simply forms because the freezer compartment is cold.

The icemaker's function is to sense when ice is formed in the trays and to dump the ice into its container.

This requires the use of a thermostat to sense the water/ice temperture and 'tell' the icemaker when it's time to dump the ice.

During the dump cycle, a heater briefly comes on as the arm swings through the ice cube compartments to assist in loosening the ice cubes and make them easy to dump.

If the icemaker is filling with water but you get no ice, I suspect that either the control circuit (thermostat, relays, and wiring) is not 'telling' the heater to come on, or the heater is burned out.

Some units also have a timer circuit such that both the timer contacts and the thermostat contacts must be close in order to initiate a dump cycle (i.e., it must be time to dump and the water in the cubicles must be frozen).

A skilled homeowner could make these repairs, but if you don't feel comfortable taking your icemaker apart and testing the components, I advise leaving the job to a qualified repairman.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Water seems to be flowing into icemaker fine. When I turn on the icemaker the water flows for a few seconds then stops, I have waited to see if the cycle to dump works and it seems as if it never attempts...


If your freezer temperaures are good i.e. it freezes ice cream and the like, then you need to replace trhe icemaker. Typically, under normal conditions, the icemaker would dump a load of cubes @ every 1-1/2 hours. Icemaker part number WR30x10093 @ $148.00 from Marcone Appinace parts or AP Wagner
