Just because you get water from the dispenser does not mean you should also get ice made in the ice maker. Fact is there are two side to the water control valve. One for the ice maker and the other for the water dispenser. Is there ice remaining inside the ice maker slots? If not then pour water into the tray until full and if after the water freezes it drops the ice into the ice bin this will indicate a defective=> WR57X10032 Water Inlet ValveIf nothing happens and the ice maker tray are full of ice this will indicate a defective=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker AssemblyThe ice maker is cannot be rebuilt on this model. I am here if you have questions, Thank You, John T Appliance 911
Sounds like the optics are bad part # 4389102 this model(if we have the right model#)has two optics boards one receiver one emitter on either side of the door opening which shoot a beam from one to the other through the opening in each side of the bin,as long as nothing blocks that beam and the freezer is cold enough to chill the thermostat to temp in the icemaker,then it should be dumping ice.
Make sure that the bucket is pushed in all the way. If the motor is running the screw should be turning. I would also take the bucket out and try to turn the auger by hand to make sure it is turning free.
Please rate solution if helpful. Thanks
Could you look on the bottom frame of your GE Monogram around the door frame and behind the fresh food section door seal for the model number? The problem most likely is in that control panel that you use to switch from crushed to cubes. Let me know, Sea Breeze
Is the ice maker turned on? The on/off switch is located on the top right side of the freezer compartment. The manual says that there is a sensor beam that passes from one freezer wall to the other to shut off ice making when the bin is full. Check to make sure nothing Is blocking that signal beam and that the bin is correctly installed.
could be a few different things, here are a few:
1) blockage in your freezer door where the ice drops in
2) the metal spiral in your ice tray that pushes the ice toward the door is frozen in place by ice
3) the motor that runs the metal spiral is not working
4) you have a bad circuitboard
will it still dispense the whole cube?theres a brass rod under yourice bucket, remove bucket and check that rod, should be spring loaded and have a little bit of action(youll see it move a flap in front of bucket as its twisted, if so make sure the bucket is being reinstlled correctly, try the dispensor w/o the bucket installed at all, open the door trip the switch with one hand and depress the plunger for both crushed and cubed and check for the motor to turn
Your problems are the power board for sure. I have the same refrigerator and have read dozens of forums and advise pages looking for answers. If you let the problem countinue your fridge will completely stop cooling and all your food will be trash as has happened to me.
Symptoms: Fan in the back starts to make click or flopping sound as it tries to start up. Ice despenser doesent despense ice. water works sometimes. Eventually you notice your food defrosting partially and then refreezing as the defrost timer stops working which is controlled by the power board. Light dims and pulses when you hold the Ice despencer in. If you remove the light for the dispencer your water will work fine as long as the fan isnt making the clicking noise. Fan will eventually start up and run.
Ice maker was installed properly, when you put the arm down it doesn't call for water to fill unit. It doesn't make any kind of noises at all. The water is turned on and all plugs are in there are no kinks in the line but when the arm is truned down for it to call for water nothing happens
The is for a frigidaire refrigerator.Ice maker is all new..
