GE GSS25LGM Ice maker

Our ice maker no longer makes ice cubes, will dispense water and ice cubes if they are placed into the bucket already made. Suggestions as to why ice isn't being made?

    After being gone for about a week, I came back to find that the ice maker was jammed with a large piece of ice that had melted into one and was preventing the cubes from being ejected. Initially, after clearing the jam, the ejector arms were still rotating and it did eject the ice. Now the arms no longer rotate and, needless to say, it no longer produced cubes.



    I then unplugged the frig and let it set for about an hour before plugging it back in. No success.



    Now the ice maker is no longer ejecting cubes.

    I also was away and while gone the ice piled up in the dispenser tray and hardened together. After cleaning the tray I no longer had ice made, green light on, water dispenser works, ice dispenser works--just no new ice. Any ideas would be muchly appreciated

Our Ice maker quit working. Won't make ice, but will dispense water. I unplugged the refrigerator and plugged it back in. I noticed that the green light on the ice maker is now blinking. It was steady on before I unplugged the fridge. Any ideas?

    If you are comfortable with electric mulit-meters, check voltage across the 2 legs that feed water to the ice machine (this should be the one with the black water line that ends up going back to the top right corner of the rear of the refrigerator). If there is voltage (110-120 AC), then you need to check to see if the solenoid is still a closed circuit (check to see how many Ohms across the 2 leads, or for continuity, if your meter beeps). If that's not the problem, continue to see if the controls work, circuit board, etc... hope this helps! ;)

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side ...ice maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser


Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

Ice maker stopped dispensing


Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

I have no manual and I want to make ice cubes and be able to drink filtered water. I do not get any ice cubes when I switch the button on in the left rear. I am not getting water. I have removed, to...


1. Keep freezer temp setting @ 5 degree.2. Check water supply with full pressure (Back of regrigerator) 3. Confirm shut off arm is not struck due to huge cubes stored in bucket. If so, please remove ice cubes.4. Check solenoid valve which allows water flow whenever required to ice maker is working.
Please follow the steps also given hereunder.


Close the freezer door completely. The dispenser will not work while thedoor is open. Place the ice bin in the proper position. Avoid placing ice inthe bin that was not made by the ice maker. The cubes may jam in the deliverychute. If ice is jammed in the delivery chute, remove it with a plastic utensil.Discard the ice in the bin and wash it if ice has melted around the auger. Drythoroughly before replacing it. Wait three minutes if the dispenser stopsdispensing ice after the arm has been held in for a long time. The dispensermotor will reset and will begin to dispense ice again.

Thanks

Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.


I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

GE model GSH25JFTACC ice maker not working


When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Dispensing problems


Check that the crush mechanism is not jammed with ice. That could prevent it from disengaging.

GE GSS25LGM Ice maker not dispensing ice


You have one of three things wrong. The auger motor is frozen up, the ice bucket is broken or you need to dump out any ice, run warm water through the entire ice bucket, dry it out and try again with fresh cubes. My guess is the auger motor is frozen. You can buy a vinyl boot that covers the auger motor to prevent moisture buildup and freezing from GE Parts at 1-800-626-2002

Ice Maker


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.
