Question about Refrigerators

GE profile refrigerator model # TBX25PR

I have a GE profile refrigerator w/ ice maker (TBX25PR). The ice maker dispenser isn't working. It makes ice but when you push the door button you hear the motor but ice does not dispense. It seems the ice maker drive mechanism is not rotating. It worked in the morning and then it just stopped. I tried to rotate the drive mechanism but it seems stuck. What can I do? It is a pain because to get ice you have to completely remove the ice container- a very poor design.

See if ice is jammed up in the tunnel the ice is pushed through.
Will the motor turn the auger with all the ice removed.

Ge Profile Stainless Steel 26 ft Refrigerator ice maker dispenser

try pulling out the ice bucket, remove all ice and look for signs of damage on the auger mechanism... most of the time the ice tends to clump up and that prevents the auger from moving freely.

Ice maker in our GE profile refrigerator is not working

Ice maker Diagnostic Test:

- Remove the ice bucket
-Turn the ice maker off, wait 15 seconds than turn it back on
-Press the ice paddle three times, this will begin diagnostic test.

-In 3 minutes you should see the rack inside turn 360 degrees
-AND the ice maker bowl should fill with water

-IF either DID NOT work, call 1-800-GE-CARES for ice maker replacement. A service call is approx $80. The $80 will be deducted from the part/labor if you choose to purchase/install parts from the service technician. If not, you will pay for the service call. Good luck.

GE Profile Fridge Model No. PSC25MSWA SS not making ice

Check to see if there is any obstruction (object of any kind) in the ice cube mold area. If nothing found, you will have to replace the icemaker, as individual repair parts are not available.

GE refrigerator model GSS22 WGMD ice maker motor

If you cant manually turn your auger motor, it may be bad. Does it dispense solid ice or no ice at all? Another thing may be your control panel. That could be bad too, it's the one sending juice to both your solenoid and auger motor.

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