Very Hot compressor on Ice machine model ZDIS15CBSS

My GE Monogram icemachine model ZDIS15CBSS quit producing ice. Upon investigation I discovered the compressor unit is very very hot. I would like to try to make the repair myself. Any ideas on what would be causing this?

Further note - I bought the unit "second-hand". Traveled home with it laying on it's side for about an hour during the ride. Once home, I let it stand upright for 2 days before running the unit. Everything worked great for aprox. 4 weeks. Do you think the problem I'm experiencing NOW may do do to air bubbles in the freon system?

Cutter grid is not getting hot


I need you to look around your ice maker for a package containing a wiring diagram. I have information related to the Whirlpool 15 inch and 18 inch ice makers but for some reason GE did not publish the repair manual for your model. I want you to check the voltage going into the WR62X10015 Transformer
2bb81f3b-2673-4a94-87b7-5156be0aba8a.jpg

You should be getting at least 120 volts ac. Then test the voltage coming out of the transformer. What is the voltage coming out of the
WR62X10015 Transformer? Check the control board area for a fuse that goes to the
WR62X10015 Transformer
Check for loose connections going to the grid or broken wires on the grid itself. WR29X10073 Cutting Grid Assembly

My GE Monogram side by side built in refrigerator will not freeze ice or keep food frozen. It stays just under the freezing temperature. The refrigerator portion seems to work. Can anyone help?


its possible that its either short of gas or the little fan motor in frezzer/fridge is not working,but if its only making ice now and then its sounds like a gas shortage

Does not make enough ice


Ice machines are rated in pounds per hour. They usually have an arm paddle switch that tells them when they are full or a weight switch that works the same way.

If possible, transfer the produced ice to another container when the machine is full and allow the unit to keep making ice.

This assumes the machine is working properly and that the cubes are solid. (frozen and not watery).

GE ice maker is getting hot


You need to remove the ice maker the function that heats the lower element should last only a few seconds so I believe the ice maker will need to be rebuilt or replaced. Sea Breeze

Manitowoc ice machine that will not produce ice


This is odd that Manitowoc is listed on a page showing a Whirlpool refrigerator model and number. What is the model number listed on your Manitowoc? Not the base model number. The number listed inside the top section. Manitowoc has a really good service reputation. Their control boards have a series of self diagnostics. Get me your model and we will go from there.

GE Monogram Ice Maker makes ice, unit doesn't cool enough


This model Icemaker makes ice by flowing water across a freeze plate. It is located in the top of the unit behind the white cover directly below the ON/OFF/CLEAN switches. After freezing a sheet of ice it releases and slides to the cutting grid. It then drops into the ice bin and begins to melt and the whole process starts over again. The level of ice in the bin is controlled by the high level sensor on the right side of the ice bin. It is a whit tube with two wires coming out of the top. Without this sensor it can overrun the bin capacity. Bottom line this unit does not freeze ice, it only holds it like cooler does.

For parts or free answers go to this link and enter your model number into the search feature. Model ZD115C That will take you to a page with pictures and part numbers. The home page you may call or email for answeres. I did see a control board and for some reason the cutter is not heating this will cause the problem. Thanks, Sea Breeze
