Question about GE Monogram ZDI15C Automatic Icemaker

1 Answer

Hello. I have a GE Monogram ZD115 ice maker that makes ice slow

Hello. I have a GE Monogram ZD115 ice maker that was manufacturered in 2002. It was working fine and then all of a sudden one day it started working poorly. I have not found any obvious problem. It will run and operate but it makes ice very slowly. It seem to take a long time for the sheet of ice to form on the plate amd be released to the cutting grid. When it is released, it appears thinner than normal. The machine runs constantly, but will not fill up with ice. It can only manage to maintain a small amount in the ice bin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

All your problems appear to be caused by a leak in the circuit = it has caused the partial loss of the cooling fluid/freon so the freezer is struggling. The entire circuit must be checked, the leak identified and plugged, the circuit purged and refilled. This is a job for a pro, specialized equipment is required. Don't wait too long or the fluid will be completely lost and the compressor will burn running on empty.

    Thank you for the response. Your assessment sounds reasonable. However, how do you explain that it seemed to develop this condition overnight? Do you think the leak just occurred? I am a bit skeptical since it seemed to be sudden. Thanks.

    The compressor vibrates quite strongly when in use, this is why all pipes leading to it are made out of a special copper alloy that is very tolerant of vibrations. Unfortunately even these pipes can handle so much so one will eventually fail. When the pipe cracks it will be sudden and on a big scale so yes, it will appear as a fault out of nowhere. Your fridge is about at the age when this type of problem appear so when the repairman will come tell him to check very carefully the other pipes - on the ones close to failure you can see the stress marks as a discolouration ring on the pipe.

Hello. My G.E. Monogram water dispenser trickles water after we get water from it. We have to keep a cup there to catch the excess water. How do I fix it so it stops as soon as we get water out of t

Try replacing the Water Valve. It is located in the back of the refrigerater, left side. You should see three tubes connected to it. This part fixes the following symptoms - Leaking water, Water dispenser will not dispense water, Ice maker will not make ice and Ice maker won't dispense ice. GE part#WR57X10032. The Water Valve is extreemly easy to replace. Only takes about 15 mins total time to remove, install and confirm. I just replaced problem went from leaking water to no water was dispensing at all. I have the GE Profile, it uses the same water valve as your GE Monogram. There is a You Tub video that also shows how to replace. Good Luck!

Ice cube maker makes ice cubes ever once and a while, the condenser fan turns slowly. is this why it doesn't make ice cubes and the frezzer side is not cold enough? condenser fan going out? monogram...

Good day,
The ice maker speed of production is determined by the freezer temperature. If the freezer temperature is warmer than normal then the cycle thermostat in the ice maker will take longer to reset for the next harvest, causing low ice production.
More important, the condenser fan motor running too slowly can cause the compressor to run overheated and cause serious and expensive damage.
If in your opinion, it is running too slow, the issue should be addressed as soon as possible.

I need a water valve for a Monogram zd115 Ice maker. Where should I buy one. and what about a part number??

If you have the model number of the machine, or the old part in hand, you should be able to get your part at any appliance parts supply house (look in the yellow pages). It is better IMHO to take the part with you to the store.
