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 water will not stop flowing into the ice tray after it has filled.


Chances are that the dual water control valve on the ice maker side is defective and not shutting off all the way allowing water to slowly leak by and mess up the freezer with frozen water everywhere. The replacement part is=> WR57X10051 Water Inlet Valve

If the water is simply an extended over fill after ice maker refills that will be caused by the ice maker itself. WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly
If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

Dispenses water for drinking but not to make ice in ice machine


Your model refrigerator uses an electronic Ice Maker. You can test the Ice Maker by filling with tap water and let freeze sometimes they already have ice inside and shrinking because of defrost. If you can fill the trays with tap water and it freezes and dumps but does not refill with water the problem will be the water control valve. If ice maker does nothing and on then the Ice Maker is the problem. Try that first and let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

ICE MAKER INOP


Check the water control valve on back and bottom of refrigerator. One side is for the dispenser and the other side is for the ice maker. When the ice maker begins a cycle the thermostat inside the ice maker begins to warm the bottom with a heating element to allow the ice to move freely and then dump into the container beside it. As the cycle reaches its final resting place a limit switch is pressed inside the ice maker to refill with water and start the process again. So if the water valve does not open and the tray remains empty and the ice maker will try to cycle again if the thermostat says that it is cold enough again. Check your model number again and I will try to get you some drawings. The number looks good but can't seem to pull it up. Let me know what you see and find. Try filling the tray with tap water and see if it will cycle after freezing. Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Bottom freezermakes little ice


The ice maker has a temperature sensor inside that lets the ice maker know its time to drop the ice and refill with water. That could be the problem or the water control valve for the ice maker is not opening when its called to refill the trays. I will try to help you, Sea Breeze

Ge ice maker stoped working


Check out the tray heating element that is designed to melt the ice slightly so it can be scooped out into the waiting tray.

If there is no water or ice in the tray, then check out the solenoid that allows water into the system.

Ice bucket/bin frozen in place


mine was overfilling because the ice was getting stuck on the way out. So some stayed in the tray and when the water would refil, it would overfil and go over the stuk cubes. leaving it to overflow to the bottom and freeze like yours.
