Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker my ice maker is not making ice and the drinking fountain on the external part of the door is not giving water, but there was a slow drip there. This morning the freezer defrosted so I reset it on a higher freezing setting. I am still not getting either ice or water. I check the water lines to make sure they were not clamped etc.... This is a GE side by side purchased new in June of 2003. Hope you can help. Thanks

We had a similar problem when we first purchased ours. It turned out that where the water line had been punched through into the house line, the punch ended up having to be backed out a little and then punched through again. The initial installation had not pushed through enough. No problems since. Hope this helps.

It's not making ice. Not sending water to the ice maker. I replaced the filter this morning. Water is dispensed for drinking , but not for the ice maker.


I just replaced the water valve because my water dispenser in the door kept dripping. Google parts for your model and put in water valve. It will cost around $80 for the part. My sic year old did most of thr reacement after watching an online video.

No water going into ice maker on our roper side by side refrig


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} 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.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

No ice being made. water supply for drinking is OK. Model is about 3 years old. question: why no ice. does the automatic shut off arm control the water flow?


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off, 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. Please reply if you need more help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Ice maker is not working. No water is getting up to maker. Ice maker sounds like it is working. Tube in back has no water in it.Arm is down. Water is coming out of door just fine. There is no built in...


There is a screen in the water inlet valve where the water supply connects. OR The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. 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 ice maker and water dispenser does not work. There is no power to the exterior dispensing unit on the refrigerator.


I'm assuming you are saying there is no ice and water being dispensed, but that the ice maker is producing ice.

Actual ice maker operation is independent of the fountain which is for dispensing only.

The power is checked at the fountain board on wires Red/Black and White. The door must be closed when doing this check as power goes through the door switch. If no power is present, check the same wires at the connector under the upper door hinge cover.

The next check would be Red/Black to Blue while depressing the actuator pad button.

Outputs off the board are Pink to auger motor, Black to fountain water valve, other Black to fountain light, Violet to cube solenoid, the two brown wires go to the ice chute door solenoid.

The ice maker can be checked by removing the plastic cover up front. Check test points L to N for 120VAC. Short test points T and H to cycle the ice maker. Make sure it does not have ice or water in the mold already, or it will run over.

Of course last but not least, check water to the refrigerator. It is a dual valve and unlikely both solenoids could fail at the same time.

Ice maker not making ice


Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.
