GE Arctica (PSS26NGSB) ice and water dispenser

I have a GE Profile Arctica (PSS26NGSB) refrigerator. And have been having problems with the water and ice dispenser since I have the bought the thing. The water only dispenses some of the time. And as for the ice, it had stopped dispensing cubed ice and only dispensed crushed (even when cubed ice was selected), but now it has completed stopped dispensing any ice at all.
When I had my warranty, GE replaced the entire ice and water dispenser system, and it worked fine for a while and now it has gone back to same problems: water some of the time and ice never.
However, the refrigerator continues to make ice and fill with water and all of the lights on the panel still light up when selected.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!! :[ (I need water and ice!!!)

    same problem here, The water works only sometimes and when I go to get cubed or crushed ice, it sounds like something is shutting down and the light goes off. I will call that number for sure to see what they can do. My unit is only 2.5 years old.

    I have the exact same part replaced and the problem is on an off again as well -- so frustrating! I've had my fridge for 3 years now and last night it decided that the fridge side didn't want to cool as well as the water & ice not dispensing. Had to get ice and put all my food in coolers until I could call repair service this morning. Now the fridge & ice/water are working again. HELP! This wasn't exactly the cheapest fridge so I'm very disappointed so far. Otherwise, when its working I love it!

Hello. Hollow cubes is caused when there is not enough water going into the ice cube molds. That said, since you have too much water going into the water dispenser I would suspect that the valve needs to be cleaned or possibly replaced. Joe

GE Profile Arctica PSS25SGNA BS Icemaker is not working seems to be filling with water but no ice.

The water dispenser and ice maker side run separate sides of the water control valve. Fill ice maker with tap water and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then does not refill then the water control valve is the problem. I will be back soon with a photo and some links, Thanks, Sea Breeze
