Check your incoming water pressure, change the water filter recently? hollow ice cubes is a sign of low water pressure

Ice maker stopped working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . After freezing , it dumps , replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . If it does not dump the cubes , check that the coils are clean under the refrig at the bottom in front , and if they are and the freezer seems to cool good , then replace the ice maker . NOTE : If the ice maker dumps and not refil with water , replace the valve AND check the tube which fills the ice maker inside , to make sure ice has not frozen inside the tube , which also indicates a bad water valve ( seeps ( not closing completely )) .

Ice maker quit working on GE refrigerator


Sometimes on a ice maker what will happen is the water line that fills the ice maker will freeze. You can use a large syringe filled with hot water and from the rear of the frig remove the water line where the hose goes into the rear of the frig and force some hot water into the tube to see if it is clear.
If the line is clear fill the ice maker manually and see if it goes through a cycle.
If it goes through a cycle you have to check to see if the ice maker is calling for water by putting a multi meter across the contacts of the water inlet valve located behind the panel on the back of the frig. Advance the ice maker to run through a cycle and see if it is calling for water. If you have current going to the valve and no water momming in, replace the valve.
If you do not have current going to the valve after the ice maker has gone through a cycle. Replace the ice maker.

My ice maker has stopped working, the water continues to dispense thru the door yet the ice has stopped


Most likely the water control valve on the rear of the refrigerator is defective for the ice maker side of the valve. Try filling the ice maker with tap water and let freeze. If the ice drops and cycles and does not refill then the water valve is the problem. If the ice maker does nothing when you try this the ice maker is the reason. Send me your model number and I can tell you the parts that need replaced. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Icemaker won't fill tray,


Was the inlet tube frozen. If so your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking and when the water reaches the freezer it freezes, blocking the inlet tube. Replace the water inlet valve.
You can Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

No ice


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps , the water valve is bad ( where the wall water line connects to the fridge ) . If it freezes and does not dump and the ice stays in the icemaker , replace the icemaker . Also check the fill tube ( the tube going from the freezer wall to the icemaker itself ) to see if it has frozen closed . If it has , the water valve is not closing completely , and letting a drop thru and freezing in the tube . Also an indication of a bad water valve .

ICE FORMS IN THE WHITE PLASTIC WATER TUB LEADING THRU THE BACK OF THE WALL TO THE ICE MAKER. SHUTTING OFF THE WATER TO THE ICE MAKER.


The units not getting enough water pressure to keep the water flowing fast enough not to flash freeze in the fill tube. You will have to check the water supply valve on the plumbing and the back of the unit to see witch on needs cleaned out or replaced.

Water freezes before getting to ice tray


sounds as if your water inlet valve is not closing fast enough allowing a small amoutn of water to accummulate in fill tube freezing and eventually freezing solid, would try replacing water inlet valve, or even the water filter if this model is so equipped

Ice maker freezing up


If it is only the fill tube that is freezing up, or getting full of ice, than your water valve is leaking (letting drops of water thru to your ice maker and filling the icemaker fill tube up and freezing). If this is the case, replace the dual water valve (part # 1071263) located in the back of the refrigerator, just follow the water line from your wall into the refrigerator. Make sure you turn off the water to the refrigerator and also unplug it. The dual water valve is the one that has two water lines, one going to the icemaker and one going to the water dispenser. On this model, I think you only have one water valve. On some you have two, the primary water valve and a secondary water valve (the dual valve). If this is your case, I would highly recommend you replace both. As far as the Refrigerator side freezing things up, I think that is a whole different issue. Please post back.
