Good work thus far. If the ice maker tray that holds the ice is leaking, you need to get a new ice maker. It would never work right if you tried to patch it, and would only cause further headaches. Sounds like you have a little experience which is good. Go down to a local retailer and purchase an ice maker and install it yourself instead of paying someone to do it ;) There is no foul in paying to get it done though. good luck!

Layer of ice formed on the bottom of freezer and a layer of water with no obvious source has formed on the top shelf on the right side.


That is an easy one. Instead of the defrost liquid draining down the drain hole it is blocked and a slab of ice is forming. You must thaw out the ice box and clear the drain hole. Another thing that could cause this slab of ice could be a leaky ice maker water valve or a faulty ice maker pumping in too much liquid into the ice mold.

sounds like your ice maker has a degraded coating on the mold that forms the cubes. if you remove it from the freezer, then you can see if the coating is coming off. if so then you need to replace the ice maker.

Ge monogram ice maker makes loud churning noise. Any suggestions


Mine has been doing the same thing and foound it was the pump cavitating (dry). What caused it on my unit is there was buildup of minerals on the sides of the freezer plate so the ice slab wouldn't slide all of the way down onto the grid. When the unit would start the next cycle the water would ramp up over the stuck slab and down into the ice bin and then the pump would start making the noise. A related problem could be the cutter grid not heating so the slabs back up and results in the same issue. Look up into the freezer plate next time it makes the noise and see if there is a slab partially stuck.

Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on
models) in the OFF position?
 Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned on?
 Has the ice maker just been installed? Is the freezer
temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours
after ice maker hookup for ice production to begin. Allow
3 days after ice production begins to completely fill ice
container.
 Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on.
 Has a large amount of ice just been removed? Allow
24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
 Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter
may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
 Is an ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
For models with an interior ice bin, remove the ice from the
ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? Make sue your connections are secure.
